Thinking that Cruz or any other conservative has the powers of persuasion to overcome our demographics is wishful thinking. Thinking they are somehow going to start a successful third party when the growing number of freeloaders work once every two years (vote) is not realistic.

I don't think I've ever suggested that Ted Cruz could whup the Democrat left and the RINO establishment single handedly. But - it's a fact that he has terrified them all so badly, they're having a collective meltdown. That's power, and it's being wielded by a lone Senator.

Put half a dozen more like him in office, and the whole left will collapse.

Now, you can choose to wring your hands and give up the battle just as we're beginning to take back ground from the enemy, but I and most others here won't. I also won't agree to your assertion that "our view of America and the political preferences of our people do not reflect reality."

Just because the Dems have better field advantage at the moment, and there aren't tens of millions of us surrounding DC, doesn't mean that we're in the minority, or that the war is lost.

I don't, and I won't buy that. The day I do, is the day I hand in my Freeper card and quit posting here. It would be pointless to sit among these good patriots if I weren't with them in mind, body, and spirit. Should I ever lose the will to fight, I will remove myself from their honorable company.

As should any person who's resigned themselves to our defeat.

I don’t know the answers. I am not a pessimist by nature and I am not a quitter - I try to do my part. We face difficult times and as my tagline says - we (being all Americans) have to suffer some pain to provide our children a brighter future and likely save our nation as it has existed. I am very frustrated that more Americans don’t understand the mess we are in and how we got here and what is required to get out of it. There seems to be little interest in doing the right thing.

What I said about taking back the GOP stands. If right minded Americans can’t control the GOP despite controlling the platform we need to primary the RINO’s and regain control - it’s difficult, but it has been done. If we can’t force the GOP to abide by it’s platform we don’t have the power and voice necessary to wake up our nation and a third party won’t do anything but insure control by the rats.

I appreciate your enthusiasm and desire to do the right thing and please know I intended no criticism - I will keep fighting for what is right, but I am also preparing for the hard times that appear to be coming and others would be well served to do the same. I don’t feel good about it.
