Hate? Who said anything about hate?

If Cruz were on fire i would absolutely totally piss on him.

I'm not entirely convinced who the real Ted Cruz is, but at this point the guy who is the darling of the tea people is enough of a poster boy for white supremacy trash to embarrass the likes of even Rush Limbaugh. (Okay maybe not).

While some may not be able to put a finger on the moment that Cruz set them on fire, i guess for me it's that constant and condescending smile he has on his face, with that fake charm in his speech. He smiles at you while he's telling you how much better he is than you, all the while asking for your vote, for your money, and you might not even realize what he is up to.

Yes he is one who helped lead the charge for the budget crisis a few years ago which ended up with, among other things, Govt and DOD personnel getting furloughed without pay in the summer of 2013. And also the government shutdown later on that year. And let's not forget his fillibuster-anti-Obamacare tirade in which he spoke for nearly an entire day, while reading Dr. Seuss to his children from the capitol floor. On the tax payers dime, no less.

This is the same guy who wants to "abolish the IRS" and send all of those IRS agents to guard the border. Why? Because, well i have no idea why actually, other than maybe it sounds "good" and revs up the tea people base perhaps. You know this is a lie though, as in, it's all pomp and circumstance or empty rhetoric. Yet the tea people eat this stuff up and shout from a mouthful of nothing slogans like "LIBERTY!" and "CONSTITUTION!" (and im sure there are some God, Guns, & Gay's references thrown into the mix as well just for good measure).

Ted Cruz, who is also registered for Obamacare now, is the ultimated birther hypocrite. His father, who fought for communism with Fidel Castro, is a crazy fanatical preacher who makes Huckabee and the rest of the "good ole boy" con-servatives look somewhat wholesome. Cruz, who was born in Canada (yeah thanks a fucking lot Cana-duh!) is somehow perfectly qualified to run for POTUS in the eyes of the tea people, even though the current occupant of the WH is still a communist/marxist/terrorist in their minds.

Cruz is obviously pulling the wagon for some unseen force or group of people. He is the figure-head for the crazy fringe of the republican party. Much like Palin was in 2008, and Santorum was in 2012 (or anyone to the Right of Romney was, for that matter). I don't know exactly who these unseen forces or people are, but they are a real danger to this country. Unlike Al Qaeda or ISIS, these people will destroy the country from within.

That's just one theory. Another theory goes a little bit differently, but here goes. Cruz is everything i said he was, but for different reasons. He might just be the crazy du jour for this election cycle, as Santorum and Palin were for the previous two cycles, but this time perhaps the power players behind the scenes know he has little chance at pulling it off based on the past two elections. So maybe they are using Cruz as a sort of "decoy" for their real guy, like perhaps, Walker. Under this scenario, Cruz enters the race first, says a lot of crazy shit, woos some and terrifies others, has the media foaming at the mouth over him like they did Palin, and draws a lot of heat away from the other guys. Instead of tarnishing the entire brand, under this plan, Cruz is so loathsome that the rather large field of candidates very publicly distance themselves from this guy. The average undecided person or Independent might have a little respect for Jeb or Walker if those two moderate to the left of him on every issue, specifically social issues, and look somewhat like a reasonable guy. Cruz folds up shop at the beginning of 2016 in time to give the moderates still in the field a chance to unite behind one they think can defeat Hillary.

Or maybe im full of shit, Cruz and the tea people really are that crazy, and the country is totally fucked. I'd like to think not, as these super-secretive GOP conferences held in tucked away lodges and resorts have to be full of secrets and strategies on how they can control us and yet still make us smile and want more of it.

Ted Cruz, if i haven't expressed this before, let me say it now and forever; fuck you, fuck your supporters, and fuck the covered wagon that you didn't ride in on, you pathetic phony liquid turd.

Interesting Quiz. More nuanced than simply Yes or No questions. You can rank in importance.

That was an interesting quiz, but it's a painful reminder that we still don't have a multi-party system.

Democrats - 96%
Greens - 96%
Socialists - 87%
Libertarians - 53%
Constitution Party - 23%
Republicans - 4%

There's a difference between lip service and actually putting into practice liberal policies, so I'd take the Democratic percentage with a huge grain of salt, especially since my foreign policy/immigration answers are the exact opposite of what Obama has been up to over the years (mass deportations, drone strikes, etc.).

I've been a registered Green since I became a voter over ten years ago fyi.



For example, it says the Democrats...

- Favor decriminalizing most drugs. Completely untrue.

- Favor term limits. Hardly.

- Say that law enforcement shouldn't grab illegals for minor crimes so they can be deported. Obama has deported more people that any past President.

- Want to shut down Guantanamo. Obama said that too...sure didn't happen.

- Are against NSA spying on allies...sorry, but the Commander-In-Chief sure wasn't.




It also had me disagreeing with the Greens on two issues. One because they didn't know the Green policy position and another where I actually had the same answer (we both disagree on raising the Social Security age - but the answer they gave the Greens was more specific).

So, really, my only disagreement with the Green Party was over term limits (I favor them) and I'm not even sure their platform is against term limits. You figure they would be for them as it would mean less corporate influence.

It also said Republicans are against gerrymandering and support GMO food labeling. Neither could be further from the truth, especially the lawsuits the party has filed against independent commissions determining the congressional boundaries.

Fun fact: I registered as Republican so I can vote for the worst candidates in their primary.
