He blamed the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting, which was a direct result of the lies spread by Carly Fiorina and her ilk, on Democrats somehow.

Economically, he's just as bad. He is for a flat tax, which is insane. He was anti-net neutrality, which is like arguing that utilities shouldn't be regulated. He pejoratively calls climate change science "a religion," which is hilarious coming from a religious zealot like him.

I could keep going, and I've already mentioned that he's from nearly all accounts a terrible person (recall that he told a college classmate whose mother had an abortion that her mother was a whore who was going to hell), but those are just a few of the many reasons why. He is the worst candidate for President in a field filled with horrible candidates.

Well, I agree with him on all those issues. That's probably why I support him.

Better question is why do you not hate him, too?

I thought Republicans hated religious extremists.

By FYM standards, I would be considered a religious extremist.

Amy Lindsay has appeared in films such as Erotic Confessions, Carnal Wishes, Secrets of a Chambermaid, and Insatiable Desires. “Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad,” a Cruz campaign spokesman told BuzzFeed News.

So you agree that gay couples who have have been granted the legal right to marriage and who have exercised that right should have their marriage licenses revoked and no longer be allowed to marry? And that states should be able to enact laws discriminating against homosexuals for no other reason than their sexual orientation?

Wow.

Yeah, I could see how Cruz is your guy.

Ugh. Really? Charming.

Yeah, the fact that the GOP has candidates who still think gay marriage is the worst thing ever, and their obnoxious and horrifying attitude towards the abortion issue, are definitely some of the biggest reasons for me not to support them.

To say nothing of how utterly hypocritical they are with those issues. "Limited government is the best government! Except, you know, when it comes to deciding who should be allowed to marry, or what a woman can do with her body. Then it's totally okay for the government to get involved!"

Either that's a direct threat that she's going to kill everyone, or she's going to love us, because she's a big Les Miz fan, and that show taught us all that "to love another person is to see the face of God!"
