Ted Cruz: Every time Republican
Party moves left, ‘we lose’

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley

Sen. Ted Cruz doubled down on his adherence to strict conservative principles, saying that the GOP’s way to the White House is not paved with compromises and concessions to the Democrats. “It is amazing that the wisdom of the chattering class to the Republicans is always, always, always, ‘surrender your principles and agree with the Democrats,” Mr. Cruz told the New Yorker. “That’s been true for my entire lifetime. The chattering classes have consistently said, ‘You crazy Republicans have to give up on what you believe and become more like Democrats.’ “And, I would note, every time Republicans do that,

My Texas senator says the words that hopefully will resonate to voters today that need to get the Tea Party on the November ballot.

Electing kitty cats is the problem. They then move the party to the left by the pusillanimous actions. Let´s elect principled fighters and then we will see which way the party moves (let the RINOs howl).

I´ve never understood the Limbaugh and now Cruz logic.
Americans will vote for the more liberal Democrat candidate because the Republican candidate
isn´t conservative enough.
Do they honestly believe that voters say " Hmmm..Mitt Romney isn´t a pure enough conservative for me, so I guess I´ll vote for Obama " ????
BTW- Limbaugh continues to falsely claim that 4 million Republicans stayed home
rather than vote for Romney.
Romney got a million more votes than McCain / Palin.
4 million Democrats actually stayed home
in 2012 vs 2008.
I´m also sick of these holier than thou types declaring that unlike them ,
Republicans don´t have principles and have always surrendered.
Limbaugh and Cruz purposefully ignore the reality that we are a divided country and presently ,
other than in the House ,
Republicans are in the legislative,
presidential and judicial minority.
In the House , Republicans have 233 seats and Democrats have 199 seats with 3 vacancies.
Of the 435 seats a mere 34 seats separate
the two parties.
Limbaugh and Cruz always make it seem as if
Republicans now just refuse
to accomplish legislative goals when they actually don´t have the power to.
That type of phony and deceptive rhetoric is unprincipled.

With respect, #6, the establishment republicans do not listen to the will of the people anymore. Many L.dotters have a wide variety of perspectives on this discussion and many see Senator Cruz as a problem.

The problems is that DC doesn´t listen.

When we have accepted bigger government as long as a ´republican´ is in charge it has been a disaster. Richard Nixon brought in the EPA which now is creating all sorts of regualtions which the Congress or the people have not voted upon. The EPA and Obama operatives are about to cripple coal production.

When we accept those who do not hold the line on MORE taxes, we surrender the future of the country to unfunded mandates which will ruin the value of the dollar and eventually become untenable.

When the party is governed "top down" instead of from the people, we lose.

If you are conservative, be true to your roots. We already have plenty of socialism built into the system we have now, but nobody seems to fight the hellbent surge over the cliff to HUGE increases in socialism.

As Margaret Thatcher said "socialism works until you don´t have anyone left to pay for it",

Au contraire, #10. There are at least two regular L-Dotters who advocate voting for the Democrat in November to "make the point" to "establishment Republicans". One of the posters vows to vote against McConnell in Kentucky by casting a vote for Grimes.

Is the hatred for Senator Cruz due to his ability to make the Hypocrites expose themselves? Rather like Lamar A. now going in the last few weeks with promises of no amnesty when he has been advocating it all along?

Too many Dem Lites, even posting at L.com, show themselves with the comments against Conservative candidates.

McConnell and Boehner have not been effective in their respective positions and each has been in Congress WAY TOO LONG.

Boehner has filled his coins with Insider Trading and cannot disclaim facts made in Peter Schweitzer´s book "Throw Them All Out". What he did was to take out his vindictiveness against the Conservatives elected in 2010 and 2012. Judgment day will come!

The Republican Party moves left because that is where the money is. It is just that simple.

#6´s little mantra of half baked and assembled facts is a great example of why the Republican Party continues to decline.

Example: " Limbaugh continues to falsely claim that 4 million Republicans stayed home
rather than vote for Romney.
Romney got a million more votes than McCain / Palin.
4 million Democrats actually stayed home
in 2012 vs 2008."

(A)McCain would have been buried in a landslide if Palin had not come on-board.

(B)Romney still lost even though 4 million less democrats didn´t turn out.

Do the common sense math.

to no. 14´s question, this person voted for McVain because, and ONLY because, Sarah Palin was on the ballot. And for no other reason. And I have reason to know that I was not alone in that.
You win elections and move the culture by persuasion, not by PANDERING to the lowest denominator. Increasing the bids is not the way to turn around a "bread and circuses" direction. I thought we knew how that turns out. We just have the Mexicans and the Somalis taking the place of the Goths and Visgoths. Same direction of travel, same outcome.
If you have no principles, admit it. We knew it already, time you admit it to yourself as well. We still won´t respect you, but you might start to climb out of your cesspool from then on.

We can go round and round till the cows (at my house, horses) come home. Bottom line, the GOP is very much a declining party. Boehner and McConnell are neither supported or respected by most American conservatives. This is for good reason. Old platitudes, nonspecific party platforms, and walking talking points with good hair who smile on cable shows while being insulted won´t win elections against progressives. It´s a new day and this was clear at the recent TX GOP Convention. This is a fight Reagan had to fight. We are fighting it again. He won. So will we.

Sarah Palin was a highly visible and polarizing figure in the 2008 presidential election. She generated media attention and attracted praise and criticism beyond what is usually given to vice-presidential nominees. It is logical to assume, as popular post-election wisdom did, that her impact on the outcome of the election was also greater than previous running mates. "The ´Palin Effect´ in the 2008 Presidential Election" uses survey data to support that conclusion. Our reading of the article respectfully argues that the data do not support the key findings, which are:

1. That there is a negative conditional effect of feelings toward Palin on likelihood of a McCain vote among independents and moderates. We find that using marginal effects, as is appropriate for cross-sectional data, shows that Palin had a positive effect on McCain vote choice, and based on our model specification, may have had a positive, conditional relationship for independent voters.

2. That Palin‘s impact on vote choice was the largest among all recent vice-presidential candidates. We find that when confidence intervals are included, Palin‘s effect was not necessarily the largest among the nominees since 1972.




Unlike the Republican Establishment lackey, I back up my claims and answer challenges to my assertions.

New Religious Demands on Obama

This week, in the Hobby Lobby case, the Supreme Court ruled that a religious employer could not be required to provide employees with certain types of contraception. That decision is beginning to reverberate: A group of faith leaders is urging the Obama administration to include a religious exemption in a forthcoming LGBT anti-discrimination action. Their call, in a letter sent to the White House Tuesday, attempts to capitalize on the Supreme Court case by arguing that it shows the administration must show more deference to the prerogatives of religion.

Los Angeles - It’s not just a people problem: Growing rates of obesity in pets have led to the emergence of fat farms offering ‘‘pawlates,’’ ‘´doga’’ and ‘‘Barko Polo,’’ doggie versions of Pilates, yoga and Marco Polo to help slim down man’s best friend. In the U.S., 53 percent of dogs are overweight or obese, up from 45 percent four years ago. In cats, the figure is almost 58 percent, said Dr. Ernie Ward, a veterinarian and founder of the Association of Pet Obesity Prevention in Calabash, North Carolina. Overweight pets can suffer diabetes, joint problems, heart disease and decreased life expectancy, just like obese people, he said.

A Burger King in San Francisco has taken its support of LGBT pride week to a new level and released a special sandwich — the Proud Whopper. Burger King is already on record as supporting gay marriage, issuing in the past a “Be Your Way” slogan that played off its popular “Have it Your Way” message. But the specialty sandwich is a new thumbs-up campaign for gays, Time reported. The Proud Whopper is no different in taste, texture or ingredient than the regular Whopper — the message the chain is hoping to convey.

Bullies hiding behind computer screens now have the First Amendment to protect them. The state’s highest court on Tuesday struck down an Albany County law that criminalized cyberbullying, crimping government efforts to crack down on electronic harassment. In a 5-2 ruling, the Court of Appeals ruled that the local law was “overbroad” and trampled free-speech rights of online tormentors. “Although the First Amendment may not give defendant the right to engage in these activities, the text of Albany County’s law envelops far more than acts of cyberbullying against children by criminalizing a variety of constitutionally protected modes of

President Obama promises that the U.S. troops he’s sending to Iraq won’t get into another shooting war, but a top White House adviser has listed several scenarios that would prompt direct military action against Islamic militants. Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser to the president, said the U.S. “has a role to play in a number of different ways” that could result in military engagements in Iraq. The government in Baghdad is fighting militants loyal to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and Mr. Obama has sent nearly 500 U.S. troops to protect the U.S. embassy and the airport in Baghdad, and to serve as military advisers.

It is not yet clear why two Iraqi army divisions entrusted with the defence of Mosul collapsed so suddenly and so abjectly two weeks ago. But a likely key factor in the astonishing success of the Isis invasion force, which apparently numbered less than 2000 men, was the failure of the US-led Coalition to provide Iraq with even a primitive air force. (Snip) The Isis fighters who came in from Syria did so by road, in pickup trucks, in a long convoy. Although some Isis trucks carried light anti-aircraft guns, their entire force was extremely vulnerable.

Cruz overwhelmingly won the Texas GOP 2016 convention straw poll, confirming his position as the conservative grassroots candidate. He fires up crowds unlike any other politician today, and the power of motivating voters and volunteers should not be underestimated. But will he run in 2016? The signs point to yes.
