Posted on 03/14/2013 1:20:22 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Invoking Ronald Reagans legacy, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz urged Republicans on Wednesday night to stick to their conservative principles no matter what in a keynote speech kicking off the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.
I think 2014 has the potential to be a very, very good year at the ballot box, he said, adding, The number one way we could screw it up is if Republicans fail to stand for principle.

MY core beliefs include NO AMNESTY whatsoever! I don’t care if he or Rubio are hispanic darlings. If either commit to some misguided attempt at AMNESTY, then they can just step on off. I’ll stay home.
There are several thousand illegal Irish immigrants here at last estimate. There is no way I would trumpet amnesty for them.
Irish illegal aliens should be deported with great publicity. That would prove we are not racist. We don’t care what your skin color is, if you are here illegally we want your illegal ass deported.
I agree. I’m of Irish decent and I don’t want them here if they can’t come legally.
The same goes for anyone from any country regardless of their skin color or language.
Also, when you do come here legally adopt to our customs and language. Otherwise stay the hell in your own country.
a principled politician in the US is an oxymoron. If the republicans want to win here are a few suggestions: Start a platform where ALL LAWS APPLY EQUALLY TO EVERYBODY, ELIMINATE RETROACTIVELY ALL EXEMPTIONS FOR POLITICIANS (obozocare and insider Wall Street info). NO MORE SPECIAL PERKS for DC politicians; buy your own cars, your own insurance and your own gas and work 40 hours a week or take a pay cut. Change the rules to make it illegal for politicians from becoming lobbyist for a minimum of 10 years once out of office. Mandate that all legislation conforms to the original law and intent of the Constitution and apply it retroactively (eliminate the Federal Reserve), mandate immediate removal from office for any politician who fails to uphold their oath of office to include any and all of their official aids. If a politician resigns in the face of impropriety or suspicion of illegal activity, they will be prosecuted regardless. just a start.
Put an end to crony capitalism and corporate welfare as well as term limits and no Presidential EOs!
Me either even though our major problem is illegals via Mexico.
I agree drypowder. Our elected act more like princes/esses than our servants. They have perks only the wealthy and above have. We ordinary $50 to 75K and even a little more cannot afford what these people have afforded for themselves, and what REALLY bothers me....they have a beauty salon where many attend each morning for their makeup and hair dressings. Some don’t, but honestly, those that do...sometimes appear with too much base makeup. Look at their hands, they are very pale, and their necks and face are perky with made up.
We need down to earth Americans overseeing the Constitution, AND we don’t need a bunch of laws pushed on us each time they meed. I say, throw out all of the laws recently put into effect, they begin removing other senseless laws. Begin with obama’s laws, then move onto tax laws, remove a bunch of lawyers from the government payroll, then onto the epa and remove those “intellectuals” then onto the non-govermental Federal Reserve. These are for starters.
On the other hand, if they are going to allow unfettered illegal immigration, then I want 5 million Irish, 5 Million German, lots of Japanese and Chinese and NO Muslims. Open the floodgates and let in something that our nation is compatible with, not uneducated floor sweepers.
I thought Cruz was good on amnesty and that it was just the rest of the GOP, including Rubio, that is horrible on it.
I think he is good on it also. But with Rubio and some of the others who have this do-gooder attitude that “these people just want......” and are making noise about how “we have to figure out some way to assimilate these felons as citizens” it is worrysome.
The Republican Party used to stand for at least some modicum of sovereignty, law and order. It seems now is that the poweratti in the Party only want to keep the power that they have in that frigging Senate Country Club; they have abandoned their real “country.”
Pandering to the hispanic minority by bending overbackwards to naturalize the distant cousins who break our laws, kill our citizens by drunk driving, murder and rape, bring heretofore extinct diseases here, choke our schools, rape our public services, maximize entitlements they shouldn’t have, et al, won’t do a damned thing.
These people aren’t going to vote for Republicans because of it; the Democrats ALWAYS promise more. It is a FOOL’s gambit, and I hope Cruz stays out of it.
Sounds like Trump is the only one who has addressed this at CPAC so far.
I’m disappointed that Palin hasn’t spoken out against this, as she is probably the only one with the power to turn the tide sufficiently from the grassroots level.
Unfortunately, as she professed a couple of years ago, there seems to be no daylight between her position and McCain’s position on this conservatively existential issue.
Honestly? I am disappointed to the bone with ALL the supposedly present and past ‘viables’ right now. The guy, or gal, I want does not exist, at least on the horizon that I can see from where I exist now, watching no account losers and leeches rape and pillage this country through all the myrian government voter buy-off entitlement programs.
I want, as the song goes, a HERO...he/she just isn’t there. He/she, whoever they are hasn’t steeled themselves yet with the righteous God-inspired indignation and disgust at what this country has become. I’m very confident such a person is out there, but the media, our own supposedly “Republican/Pseudo Conservative” pundit/consultant/former campaign staffer, Fox News whore or what have you aren’t doing a damned thing to get these people in the limelight. They are too interested in getting rich at our expense and the loss of this country.
Remember when they were all afraid of the tea party after 2010?
Then all the usual suspects started going on about defending the border first—and then after that going on to somehow address what I believe is far closer to 25 million than the 11 million they refer to as already here.
Now, after 2012, they’ve shown their true colors again by backing amnesty. The GOP is disgusting.
