"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

 

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

 

"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792

 

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

 

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

This is the template to the White House...for Cruz or whoever wins next on our side. People vs the powerful. DC vs the people, however it is cast. This is the populist route around the media circus. Take the message to the people and create a resonating message that no late night show or website can cancel out with noise.

Yup!

Exactly what Reagan did as well.

Ted has been everywhere lately, and it is a good thing!

Ted Cruz is continuing what Sarah Palin began a couple of years ago in Iowa. The anti-political establishment movement is getting real legs.

As an important sidebar: Ted Cruz....time to start a petition to impeach Obama, just like the Cruz/Lee “Don’t fund Obamacare” petition. Senator, Cruz, hook up with Senator Lee and the “Heritage Foundation” etc. and please put something together so that millions of Americans can express their feelings that Obama should be removed from office....by either being forced to resign or impeached!!!

I am sure that you can develop the correct vehicle to make this happen!!! Onward!!!

I think impeachment is a fool’s errand. The kakistocracy isn’t inclined to do so under any forseeable set of circumstances. Resignation on the other hand? The last/only time we had a President leave during his term during his term it was through resignation. You might be onto something.

IMHO.....I believe that the Clintons have already begun the destruction of Barack Hussein Obama. As Obamacare fails....and it will....more and more rank & file Democrats are going to distance themselves from Obama. There may come a time where Obama is dragging the Democrat party and brand down with him....and the panic stricken Democrats will gleefully throw Obama under the bus!!! Obama....right now is a totally failed leader!!!

i agree with you....it may well be a “fool’s errand” to try to impeach Obama....but...on the other hand, Ted Cruz in not looking so crazy right now!!! My intent would be to get 10-20,000,000 million signers on a petition to impeach Obama which might not get him impeached, but would weaken him even further!!!

I think BO’s backers have a lot of dirt on the Clintons, which, if you think about it, anyone with a room temp IQ could get with liitle or no effort. That is why BO got the nomination and all of the backing of the communists running this country!
