America is at a critical, perhaps historic, turning point. There is potential now for a catastrophic failure of ObamaCare, which means a catastrophic failure for the last Kennedy, Barack Obama, and for left's American governance. Potentially we say goodbye now to the entire liberal establishment postwar: Kennedy, Johnson, Clinton and Obama, which could bring Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) to the presidency in 2016 and raise a new political era.
We enter a new political era that will be vastly different from the last. We might best think of our time here since 1776 as a prelude and the centuries ahead as the main event. Washington was the perfect center for Americas capital between North and South since 1776. But America today falls instead east and west between the Pacific and the Atlantic. And the center of such a vast and fully matured America should likewise be in the middle. Exotic it may sound, but if we dont begin to take this into consideration today, there could in time be conflict. California will not long remain Washington's distant Tibet, and in time the new Western states will seek greater independence and autonomy from the old Eastern and colonial governance. The U.S. National Intelligence Council recently considered devolution into a "nonstate world." Already there is noise of nation state in California and extra-constitutional union with the Pacific Northwest and talk of it in Californias prestigious universities like Stanford and upscale neighborhoods like Silicon Valley....

Crush the corrupt RINOs, Tea Party alllll the way.
Ted Cruz/Scott Walker 2016?
Why would Ted Cruz select a RINO for his VP?
Scott Walker supports amnesty. In my mind, that disqualifies him.
How about some “buy American”, just a bit.
Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high-volume ping list!
Sometimes it seems as if we have been transported to an alternate universe. In this universe, the crony world has just been unmasked and the peasants are revolting.
He is so darn good. Nobody is going to out debate this man.
Cruz attended high school at Faith West Academy in Katy, Texas, and later graduated from Second Baptist High School in Houston as valedictorian in 1988. During high school, Cruz participated in a Houston-based group called the Free Market Education Foundation where Cruz learned about free-market economic philosophers such as Milton Friedman, Friedrich Hayek, Frédéric Bastiat and Ludwig von Mises. The program was run by Rolland Storey and Cruz entered the program at the age of 13.
Cruz graduated cum laude from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in 1992. While at Princeton, he competed for the American Whig-Cliosophic Society’s Debate Panel and won the top speaker award at both the 1992 U.S. National Debating Championship and the 1992 North American Debating Championship. In 1992, he was named U.S. National Speaker of the Year and Team of the Year (with his debate partner, David Panton). Cruz was also a semi-finalist at the 1995 World Universities Debating Championship.
Cruz’s senior thesis on the separation of powers, titled “Clipping the Wings of Angels,” draws its inspiration from a passage attributed to President James Madison: “If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.” Cruz argued that the drafters of the Constitution intended to protect the rights of their constituents, and the last two items in the Bill of Rights offered an explicit stop against an all-powerful state. Cruz wrote: “They simply do so from different directions. The Tenth stops new powers, and the Ninth fortifies all other rights, or non-powers.”
After graduating from Princeton, Cruz attended Harvard Law School, graduating magna cum laude in 1995 with a Juris Doctor. While at Harvard Law, Cruz was a primary editor of the Harvard Law Review, and executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, and a founding editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review. Referring to Cruz’s time as a student at Harvard Law, Professor Alan Dershowitz said, “Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant.” At Harvard Law, Cruz was a John M. Olin Fellow in Law and Economics.
We could sure benefit from this guy.
You’re not aware of Walkers position on amnesty, then.

I’ll bet that Ted knows something about zero’s time at Harvard - since he was primary editor of the law review there. Not sure that zero ever contributed much to the review - was probably just an affirmative action type of thing.
One thing for sure - the left can’t accuse this guy of not having an Ivy League education - like they have done to so many of our conservative candidates.
Pity the fool who tries to debate him!
