The people of Ukraine need to know that the free world stands with them as they protest the actions of President Viktor Yanukovych designed to destroy their constitutional rights and drive their country into the sphere of influence of Vladimir Putinís resurgent Russia.

"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

Neither side are worth wasting our time on. Venezuela is probably more in our interest than the Ukraine.

Well, Uncle Ho’s Hanoi Boi is kinda busy right now pimping “global warming” for his government grant gobbling “flat Earthers”. He’s too busy to worry about any Ukrainians. There’s BIG money in that “global warming” con job don’t ya know.

Frankly, I don’t think it’s all that clear whether Ukraine is better off having economic ties with Russia, or with the EU, which I think tried to screw them.

Also, I think we should be aware that George Soros is backing the rebels, and has been funding them with big bucks since last year at least.

I’m not saying we should take the other side, but I fail to see why we should get involved at all. What does Cruz propose we should do? Frankly, I don’t think this makes any sense.

Yes it can, Ted.
The trouble in the Ukraine has been revealed to be an outside job funded by Soros.

No amount of Soros funded agitators who fall to the Ukrainian government are any loss to anyone.

So much ignorance expressed here, it’s quite distressing. (I don’t see George Soros in the video appeal below, but then I don’t believe in bogeymen.)

You forget... Obozo has GOLF DATES and those take precedence over world affairs.

After the Olympic village is empty Putin will be invited in for the good of the Ukrainian people. Time for another Holodomor.

When you have principles you don’t have to see which way the wind is blowing before spouting off your opinion. Cruz is able to come out front with these kinds of statements because he is simply restating his deeply held and consistent principles. He is a natural born leader.

Cruz doesn’t get this. There isn’t really a “good” side in this. Merceneries on both sides. Its’ complicated. Not black and white.

Cruz should not talk if he doesn’t know the facts, which obviously he does not in this case.

Is Cruz a neo-con? Why does he meddle in the affairs of others? Would a President Cruz meddle in my life too?
