That's an awfully pretentious thing to say.

My point is that there are some in here that share their opinions, engage, and bring something to this forum. I don't care what side or what their opinion is; these are posters this forum needs to be a vibrant political forum again. And then there are those that just regurgitate and don't engage, they end up causing a distraction.

Yes. I agree with DaveC. As the only conservative to not be bull dogged out of here. I am glad to offer up my opinion from the right of center side. Otherwise this thread would get stale

If all they're doing is regurgitating and causing a distraction, wouldn't it be less of a distraction if you just ignored them? Why cause more of a distraction by making a point of combating their every statement?

I think playing the "bull dogged" victim card is part of the problem... Being outnumbered is different from being bull dogged.

Well I think that's easy to say, but when part of that also comes with "screw you"s and attacks it's not as easy to do.

Even yourself as a moderator has come in and asked these certain posters to engage and answer questions rather than just ignore them.

Why Cruz?

-He is authentically bright. The liberal Alan Dershowitz has said that Cruz was the best student he had ever had at Harvard’s Law School.

-Among the Republican candidates, Cruz is the only one to state plainly that the U.S. stayed too long in Iraq and were wrong in trying to turn it into Switzerland.

-He is a Constitutionalist and believes in a limited federal government.

-He is honest and straight to the point.

Well, honest and straight to the point are arguable. But the same could be said of most politicians.

Besides being anti-science, he was one of the Republicans that gave legitimacy to the martial law conspiracy in TX. Straight shooter my ass...

Ted Cruz is a smart guy no doubt about it.

He got his govt shutdown and mandatory DOD furloughs, which all of the Tea Party seems to applaud. And now he has his healthcare through the ACA or Obamacare, which was the reason for his filibuster.

He's smart alright, and pretty fucking scary. What's even more scare though are his supporters...those are the motherfuckers to watch out for.

Ted Cruz isn't interested in governing. Ted Cruz is interested in Ted Cruz, Inc.

You might as well say the same thing about the Tea Party. They hate the Govt, keep talking about "liberty" and quoting Thomas Jefferson "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

I suspect if Thomas Jefferson were alive today, he would spit on them. I could be wrong. I just don't see why these people are so fed up with their country they want to incite violence and continually work against the Govt that is trying to help them.

If the Govt wants to help you, thats tyranny? WTF? Liberty is, to these people, bloodshed and hate. Whatever McVeigh.
