Grassroots candidate. Not a politician.

And an impressive and accomplished man:

You know, if he pulls this off....the Cruz wing of the Senate is all of a sudden not going to be a bunch of yokels, as the media would like us to believe, but a bunch of elite - educated, extemely intelligent, heavily credentialed and substantively well read men!

Tom Cotton running in AR is of this same school.

We are developing a team, in summary, not unlike our Founding Fathers.

I can’t quite tell on the Midland University website if the university is one that requires students to have health insurance and imposes insurance on students who don’t have any. Language is unclear, though plenty of websites say they sell compliant insurance plans.

Anyone who truly stands against ObamaCare would of course abolish any ObamaCare like policies at the institution they run. Hopefully a Freeper can more accurately find the information, as I’ve got to get on the road to work.
