His platform, in fact, is a conservative's dream list. It includes ending the moratorium on offshore drilling, opening up vast new reserves of oil and gas, repealing Dodd-Frank's new regulatory regime, defanging Sarbanes-Oxley's onerous regulations on business, cutting corporate tax rates to 15%, enacting a flat tax or something close to it, "fundamental entitlement reform," restoring the currency by restraining the Federal Reserve and passing a balanced budget amendment.

I saw a belly-aching profile of Cruz yesterday by one of the main pundits. I can’t remember which one it was (Charlie Cook? Another? Can’t recall). But the gist was this. The pundit said that he had encountered candidates who were confident before, but never one like Cruz who was off the charts in his “arrogance”. He went on to say that Cruz won’t be able to do anything in the Senate because of this fiercely confident temperment.

I’m not so sure.

I think this is exactly what we need...and we need it desperately. Cruz doesn’t need the old guard leadership to tell him how to play.

It’s a new game in town.

In Virginia Mitt Romney won 60-40% against Ron Paul!
I voted for RP just to show the GOP-e that they had better listen to it's base and stop serving up RINO’s. We want real conservative candidates.
Now, I know RP leaves a lot to be desired and, heck, George Allen is not a bad guy and I will certainly vote for him over the Debtocrat, but the establishment had better take note! I'm more likely to contribute to Cruz than to the RNC or Mitt. My few political dollars are for conservatives.
