    Thanks for the input. I haven’t gone over there is quite a long time.

    Funny, most of us seem to agree on the issues, but we don’t spend much time analyzing which candidates “appear” to be best able to actually get something done about them.

    I am solidly in the Trump camp right now. I have done too much research into Cruz, Rubio, et all, to trust them to do anything more than pay lip service, while taking the fat-cat money.

    Trump is a big risk, though. Our country is in so much trouble, economically, however, that I have to take that risk. I don’t see a lawyer beholden to Goldman Sacks/Citibank, and other big donors able to withstand the pressure, and I am tired of trying to parse lawyer-speak.

    Rubio, what can I say - too young, too inexperienced, and can’t manage his own finances. So, I will vote for a crude businessman, who, at least, knows how the business word works, how to negotiate a deal, and how to bounce back from really bad economic times.

    No-one else running, on either side, has a clue. It may be our last chance before the USA goes belly-up.

    Does anyone remember when Trump’s plane had to make an emergency landing a few days ago?

    Just maybe they needed to go over it with a fine tooth comb to make sure there was no attempt at sabotage - I read that the engines on his pane are the best, with no history of problems, and it is a newer plane than AF1.

    It is possible that Trump is being cautious about maintenance, not to mention the weather in New England.

    As a Freeper who has followed Conservative Treehouse for quite a long time, and found them to be fairly reliable in uncovering information not easily found in the mainstream media, and quick to point out disinformation, I don’t get your “eye roll”.

    Is it just because they try to get to the bottom of facts that do not suit your agenda?

    That suggests to me that you really aren’t interested in trying to search for truth, but prefer misinformation that suits your mind-set, which, like concrete, is already mixed up and permanently set.

    I like to do my own research before forming a final opinion on what/who is best, considering all the complicated factors.

    Life works better for me that way. What appears to be true at first sound-bite is often seductive, but dangerously untrue.

    As Reagan said, always verify before trusting - or something like that.

    Perhaps we can agree that both Ted and Heidi should be considered competent enough not to make a “mistake” like that?

    Here is my list of things that now bother me about Ted Cruz. Remember, I was one of the first to support him, and sent in a donation that I really couldn’t afford. I feel duped, and now am fed up with those disgusting endless emails asking for money - that I can’t get stopped.

    1) He is Canadian / possibly not eligible.
    2) Carson lie for Iowa caucus.
    3) Goldman Sachs Loan. CitiBank Loan - FEC investigation
    4) potential election violations in IA – the ‘Voter Violation’ mailers and actions on caucus night.
    5) TPP
    6) Corker Bill

    He has really disappointed me. Sorry, that is the way I see it. (Not that I think Trump is perfect either, but Trump has a better message, at least when he isn’t tweeting!

    I was originally for Cruz, but he has lost me by the sleaze he is pushing.

    As Jim Robinson said, it is time to stop attacking those of us who have switched to Trump. We did it for good reasons, after finding out that Cruz isn’t what he first presented himself to be.

    The way it is going now, I am not sure I could even vote for Cruz if he succeeds in his effort to take Trump down.

    My take on it is that the establishment will use Cruz to try to take down Trump, then turn on Cruz, who they actually hate more.

    After they have demonized Cruz, and pushed Rubio up in the media swarm, they will release negative info on Rubio, leaving Jeb! standing as our only choice.

    Then, business as usual. because they really don’t care who wins as long as they can be controlled by the status quo.

    Therefor, I am sticking with the loose cannon, who has a chance to attract voters from both sides, but, I do recognize the risk involved.

    Trump is not a perfect candidate. The question we have to ask ourselves is - can our preferred “perfect candidate” get elected?

    If not, can anything done to clean up the mess we are in?

    If the funny stuff going on in Iowa conintues throughout the process, you may be right, and the dirty tricks will take him down.

    That said, I base my preference for a candidate on my main concerns.

    Closing our borders to illegals and Islamic hijrah invasion.

    Dealing with our economic mess, which will take this country down if not turned around.

    Rebuilding our military for our defense, and taking care of our vets.

    Stopping Common Core and Obama-care. The Fed Gove doesn’t even run the post office properly, never mind these two huge segments of our economy.

    If not Trump, which other candidate has a chance? That said, he isn’t perfect, and may fail. I am willing to take the risk. Cruz is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, Rubio is a tool, and Jeb is more of the same cr@p we have put up with for the past decade or so.

    If you don’t think the powers that be will use Cruz to take out Trump, then eliminate him, using pretty boy Rubio, and then bring up all sorts of stuff on Rubio to get to Jeb!, then I want some of what you are smoking!

    A few of us are smart enough to see the games being played, trying to use Cruz to kill off Trump, then get rid of Cruz - so they can then leak all Rubio’s dirty laundry, leaving Jeb! the last man standing.

    I see it so differently than those of you who are in the tank for Cruz.

    Trump is correct to shine a light on the sleaze going in in the caucuses. At this point the only two honest candidates in this contest are Trump and Carson.

    Cruz has zero chance of winning the general, Rubio is a young and inexperienced tool of the establishment, and Cruz is too clever by half, pretended to be the “outsider”, when behind the scenes he is aligned with the big banks and brokerage houses.

    Trump has my support at this point, and I think he is the only one who can beat Hillary/Sanders in the general and clean out the corruption in D.C.

    It saddens me that so many of you can’t see the forest, because you are clinging to the wrong tree.

    We should not select the candidate we prefer based on our “feelings”, but on careful reasoning, taking into consideration what skills are required to turn the sinking ship of state around, to avoid running aground.

    Thank you for posting that. I have become discouraged by the infighting going on here.

    I posted on another thread that my vote will be based on:

    (1) who is best to attack our horrible economy (Trump seems to have the edge here, because of his economics background and business experience.

    (2) who will be best at closing our border to illegal invaders from other countries, who bring nothing to us, and expect us to support them.

    (3) who has the ability to clean up Washington, get deals made with factions in Congress, and pull us back from polarization - we are now a divided house.

    Cruz has great talent, and if I needed a lawyer to plead my case, he would be my first choice. Trump also has great talents, and if I needed a deal made, I would hire him.

    I will be watching the remainder of the campaign before making up my mind, but if I had to vote today, it would probably be Trump, with Cruz coming in second.

    actually, I haven’t decided who will get my vote yet.

    I started off supporting Cruz. Trump seems. at this point, to be a bit stronger, primarily because he may have a better understanding of economics, and because of his business experience, an ability to get deals made, therefore things done.

    Cruz is a lawyer, and has a silver tongue. I would hire him over Trump to represent me in court. But, he seems to be best at taking adversarial positions, as if he were in a court of law. He doesn’t seems to be talented in getting along with his peers.

    My main concerns at this point in time are:

    1. the economy, the unbelievable deficits, which if you include unfunded liabilities, are in the stratosphere.

    2. closing our borders and deporting illegal aliens of all categories, including muslims.

    3. cleaning out the Augean Stables of Washington D.C. It has become a swamp of corruption, and we will lose our country if someone doesn’t take action.

    My vote will be based on who best to get the done, and I am as conservative as they come. I want deeds, not words.

    It looks to me as if all the long knives are coming out for Trump today - if I were younger, I might be swayed into thinking there was something there...

    but no, it is just the usual political cr@p, back stabbing, efforts to sway public opinion in the low info voters, and maneuvering to herd the sheep into the pen.

    So, not wanting to be herded, I am still up on the fence -

    Considering the hostility to (& fear) of Trump I see out there in the press, and the pundits, I can only conclude that he is the one most capable of upsetting the status quo, which, if you haven’t figured out by now isn’t very good for us sheep.

    They are all wolves when they take money from the big pacs.

    I started off really liking (and financially supporting) Cruz, but am losing faith in his independence, and now am worried that he is controlled by big money.

    Will be waiting and watching, but am no longer trusting the Republican establishment. They left me, and now I no longer belong to any political party, for I fear it is all fixed, like TV wrestling, with us being the suckers.

    My uncle, my mom’s beloved little brother, was the second wave to hit the beach in Iwo Jima. He was only 17 years old, and never recovered. He committed suicide in his early 40s, leaving two little boys and his wife to carry on.

    Both of my sons have been in harm’s way. Both came very close to the ultimate sacrifice, but both were fortunate, thank the Lord.

    I still have not decided, as I said. I get Trump’s “schtick”, and understand what he means by his over the top utterances. Does that mean I will vote for him, not necessarily.

    Talk is cheap, and I worry that he has no idea of what he can actually do to get anything meaningful done considering the D.C. culture.

    But, given the problems Ted Cruz has with the same cast of characters, what can he actually do to get us back on course?

    I don’t see this as a football/soccer game, picking teams, choosing sides, and bashing the opposition. It hurts that Free Republic has come to this.

    That is why I said it is a big mud mess we have on our hands - I want to be hopeful, but often feel like I am looking for the pony in a big pile of manure.

    I am unsure about D. Trump, but understand why he is attracting so much support. Most of us are fed up with “business as usual” in D.C.

    To be totally honest, I am very disillusioned and unsure about this entire mud mess of the election this year. I have been holding my nose and voting so many times now, and hate to think I will have to do it again.

    All I want is some clarity, and the issue isn’t Ted Cruz, but it is the ambiguous circumstance of his “natural born” status. I want that clarified, or else any one born of an American mother and a foreign father cannot be challenged in the future.

    That bothers me - the idea that “with world wide travel” any one born of a foreign father and American mother is eligible, no matter what the beliefs and loyalties of the father might be.

    As an example -check the current occupant of the highest office in our land. It has nothing to do with the honorable Mr. Cruz, but with our incredible experiment and how easily it could be destroyed by those with an ulterior motive.

    I tend to think about issues, not personalities.

    We were not living in Canada when out daughter was born, and I was only in Canada for her birth and the next day in the hospital. My husband went home to our house just across the border every night.

  • Experts Agree: Trump Is Wrong, Ted Cruz Is Eligible for the White House

    My worry/question is about Cruz’s mother.

    Did she give up her USA citizenship while she was living in Canada, and become a Canadian citizen for tax reasons? If so, how does that affect Ted’s citizenship?

    How did Ted’s parents come back into the USA if she assumed Canadian citizenship (if) - and, how did Ted’s dad get a green card to enter?

    I have to assume she didn’t give up her USA citizenship, but I worry.

    I found the link to this timeline regarding Cruz’s citizenship from a poster on the Conservative Treehouse.

    I have no idea as to whether it is accurate or not. (old enough not to believe everything I read on the internet)

    What do the rest of you think. If true, I will be disappointed, because Ted Cruz is one of my favorites.

    Can you answer this for me?

    Our youngest was born in Canada in 1971. We went to an ob-gyn right across the border, and the hospital he used for her birth.

    We resided in the USA at the time. We literally lived on the border between US and Canada.

    Is she eligible to run for President? She didn’t renounce her Canadian citizenship until she was required to to get her fist teaching job. She had dual citizenship because of her 2 day stay in the hospital in Canada.

    Thank you for that opinion.

    Have you heard anything about Cruz’s mother giving up her USA citizenship while residing in Canada,to avoid double taxation on their business?

    Would that affect his natural born status, if it is proven to be factual?

    How can we research that?

    You can bet the Dems are doing it, or have done it already!

  • No, Canada: Sen. Ted Cruz has formally shed his dual citizenship (2014)

    Our youngest daughter was born in Canada. Both of us were natural born citizens at the time, there because it was the best hospital for us at the time.

    Our daughter carried dual citizenship until she graduated from college and got her first job teaching HS math. She had to give up her Canadian citizenship in order to get that job.

    I am sure Cruz knows the rules, but wonder about his “not knowing” since he might have been required to disclose this to get his law license. But, I do not know all the rules and technicalities involved.

    Hope the Dems don’t make an issue of it if he wins the primary. They shouldn’t given the nonsense surrounding BHO, but as we all know, they have double standards, and no shame.

  • Trump says Cruz’s Canadian birth could be ‘very precarious’ for GOP

    Cruz was my first choice very early on. I am now worrying about him for several reasons, but haven’t decided yet.

    I read in one forum that there may be a question about Cruz’s mother having changed her citizenship to Canadian when she lived in Canada, because of the business they owned there. Supposedly this was to avoid double taxation.

    I have no idea if this is true or not, but if it is, the Dems could certainly use it as a weapon against Cruz, and I would hate to see that happen.

    Can any Freepers who are good at research try to find out if this has any merit?

    I have seen so many of these FUD articles over my many years of running macs, I no longer pay attention to them.

    No specifics mentioned in this one as to exactly what the vulnerabilities might be.

    There are always stupid users, I suppose.

    Have all your friends look up the “unfunded liabilities” of the US gov. That is where the truth about our precarious position can be found.
