MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Ted Cruz says he’s optimistic about the country’s future.
The health care law — well, that’s another story.
The Texas senator — a possible 2016 presidential candidate — spoke before a group of conservatives in New Hampshire on Saturday.

Rip it out.
tear it to shreds!
With a conservative president like Cruz, and even half conservative House and Senate, it might be possible to accomplish politically.
As the world saw at the Bundy ranch, these commies intend to slaughter Americans in great numbers. They will not be easily deterred.
Vote now as if your life depends on it; or fight later when your chances of survival are much less.
Has Cruz said anything about that nightmare in Nevada?
Run, Ted, run!
I believe the defining issue of our day is Democrat Party’s suborning of voter fraud.
That’s what the IRS/True the Vote crackdown was and is all about.
I think the Bundy Ranch thing will be a campaign issue in the midterm elections. That is why the Feds backed off.
Public outrage in the western states may well cost them the senate, and O’bastard knows it!
Well its just a matter of do we still have a chance of doing this peacefully or are we going to have to do it the old fashioned way. But we are going to do it.
I hope so.
We all know that things are only going to get worse, and we all need to list everything so we can highlight it to everyone, make bumperstickers, etc.
How does he plan to root the Communists out of our so-called “educational” system?
I believe the defining issue of our day is Democrat Partys suborning of voter fraud.
The defining issue of our day is the ignorance of our populace. Show me your leaders and I will show you the future.
Few Americans understand the dangers of big government - ignorance.
Few Americans understand that borrowing/printing money is taxation - ignorance.
Few Americans understand how corrupt our economy and government are - ignorance.
Few Americans understand the old adage - follow the money. Ignorance.
Few Americans understand the “issues of our day” are less about freedom and more about excuses to increase government control - ignorance.
Few Americans understand how the rule of law has been corrupted or the ramifications - ignorance.
Too few understand how dire our situation really is. Freedom cannot survive the course we have embarked on. Freedom cannot survive the promises that have been made. Freedom cannot survive when a majority view the problem (government) as the solution (growth of government).
Voter fraud is a symptom of the real problem.
The problem with that is, the Republicans have offshored quite a lot of formerly American jobs.
(Democrats have also, but I don’t expect solutions from Democrats)
Republicans need to be for American jobs.
America will never improve until its citizens value LIBERTY over EQUALITY...
Realize government is the PROBLEM not the SOLUTION.
Integrity of the election process is a tricky proposition. On the one hand, wide participation is overall, a good thing, as the opinions of those who maintain at least a modest degree of curiosity concerning what their government is up to on a fairly constant basis, and are properly aware of the consequences of lack of oversight, should be solicited to make their stand and opinions known, and used as a guide to future direction of society.
But just nilly-willy trucking in warm bodies to pull a lever to favor one candidate, or one agenda, without ascertaining the “voter” is even aware of the issues at hand, is a recipe for disaster, as has been proved over and over in so-called “safe” districts, represented by the same person, or one of a very small oligarchy, for decades and even generations. Where there is no exposition of or rivalry for differing points of view, there is no purpose to even electing somebody. That is not even remotely a democracy. The Romans did not consider ever having a poll or vote by the general public, and to keep the masses from getting too restless, they gave them “bread and circuses”. A similar, but even more cruel ethic was enforced all through what we now call the “Dark Ages”, with a small elite class at the top, fighting and bargaining for the few scraps of value and prestige in that society, and the great mass of the unrepresented and the disenfranchised that had no concept of what “freedom” or “liberty” even meant, and they didn’t get much in the way of bread and circuses, either. In fact, that probably has been the standing and most frequently exhibited kind of society mankind has known since about the time tribes ceased to wander and began to form into cities and nations.
There is something about being out in the open, with a lot of space separating each individual from others, that tends to shape the outlook away from interdependence or outright complete dependency, to personal self-motivation and self-reliance. And the two concepts of self-image are essentially incompatible, with little chance ever of reconciliation or “splitting the difference”.
I hope he’s right. But I’m not so optimistic. You at least gotta try. I don’t know how we overcome $100 trillion in debt—and that’s just the tip of the “recovery back to a free republic” iceberg.
In regards to voter fraud, I see some simple solutions that other countries seem to use;
1). Vote then finger in ink to mark that person as voted. Don’t allow people to vote with ink on their finger.
2). Require ID. Heck you can’t go out into public as an adult without ID, the only purpose for justifying not having it is for dishonest purposes, and make those ID s more tamper proof.
3). Absentee ballots eliminated when someone shows up at the polls to vote. This isn’t that big a problem to resolve.
Nothing will turn around until America and her people stand up for Israel . . .God’s chosen people, God’s chosen land. Pure and simple.
