  • Ted Cruz Declares Wisconsin ‘A Turning Point’ In The GOP Campaign

    Thanks for the correction.

    Talking to other Registered Republicans, at least in my area in upstate NY,
    Trump may get some unpleasant surprises in NY.

    It may not be the blow out he is hoping for.

    Only one problem with what you wrote.

    Trump has NOT won a “ majority” of the votes of the base.

    Check the numbers; up until now the votes have been split among a lot of candidates and are STILL being split among three, since Kasich has refused to drop out.

    Trump has gotten the most so far, but definitely NOT a majority. MOST Republicabs have voted for a candidate who is NOT Trump!

    So in a contested convention where delegates finally have the right to decide upon one of the two leading candidates, if no one can win on the first ballot, it’s will be fair game for delegates to switch votes!

    The grammar Nazis are out over your spelling of “Clinton”, but I agree with your sentiments.

    The Democrats are our enemy, NOT each other!

    I LIVE in New York and I’m voting for Cruz.

    And New York is not a winner take all state. Delegates are awarded proportionately.

    I’m not sure of that, but I’m a NY Republican and Cruz has MY vote because I want a guy with a proven record as a constitutional conservative who is also an informed articulate debater who can slice and dice any Democrat in a debate.

    I like a lot of what Trump says but I don’t see him doing that. He is a populist, not a conservative, who is always long on promises and short on specifics, He is too hot headed and always allows himself to
    Be baited into doing and saying dumb things that just get him in trouble..

    But if Trump gets the nomination, will I vote for him in November?

    HELL YES! I’d crawl naked over broken glass on Election Day to vote for him instead of letting Hillary become President!

    Soooo... My fellow Cruz and Trump supporters,,,please cut the circular firing squad crap and remember that although we each have our preferred candidate....that the REAL enemy are the LIBTARD DEMOCRATS destroying our country!!!

    Unite and fight THOSE bastards....not each other!

    KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE. Victory over our COMMON ENEMY!

    I’m a registered Republican in Chemung County, New York, in the Finger Lakes region...and I’m voting for Cruz on April 19th.

    I want a candidate with a proven record as a constitutional conservative, not a loud mouth populist who make a lot of promises but who can’t tell me how he intends to do it.

    I want a calm, shrewd, articulate debater who could slice and dice Hillary or Sanders in any debate, instead of a hot head who can’t put together a coherent sentence!

    Would I vote for Trump if he gets the nomination?

    Hell, yes, but Cruz would be a hell of a better candidate and what I want most is to win in November!

    Voter fraud?

    How can THAT be???

    According to the Left.. there is NO such thing as voter fraud!!

    It’s just a myth made up by right wingers to justify voter ID laws!

    This article is garbage..and merely repeats a Democr4at talking points mantra that I’ve heard for quite a while.

    But things have changed.

    Romney no longer NEEDS Ohio to win..

    Instead..it is Obama to NEEDS Ohio..as his firewall against an easy Romney victory.

    If anyone is rapidly losing options when it comes to an electoral college victory..it’s Obama.

    John Roberts was as well vetted as any “conservative’ justice could have been. He had a long relationship with the Federalist Society and liberals were opposed to his nomination based on his record.

    His actions last week were surprising and disappointing and could not have been predicted.

    We will never know why he ruled as he did.

    Maybe, because of his history of epilepsy, he let his emotional sympathy for those with pre-existing conditions trump his fealty to the Constitution and just did NOT want to throw out the whole law.. despite the mandate being unconstitutional under the commerce clause?

    Maybe he mistook bleating from the left wing press as reflecting real public opinion and didn’t want to hurt the court’s standing with the public and allowed himself to be swayed?

    Maybe his epilepsy drugs affected his thinking?

    Maybe he has nasty skeletons in his closet and was blackmailed?

    We will never know.

    It would have been nice to have this behind us, but we just has to deal with the situation as it is.

    When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

    His decision also gave us some gifts.

    1. A fired up conservative base. Romney raised over 5 million dollars in small donations in the 24 hours following the decision. Since the only way to defeat Obamacare is now to rally behind Romney.. there is no longer any logical reason for NOT getting on board. The stakes are too high. This could be a repeat of 2010!

    2. For the first time in 75 years, the SCOTUS has put limits on the expansion of government powers under the commerce clause. Left wing jurists are NOT happy over this. What’s more, it was the opinion of a majority of 5 of the 9 justices in this case..and is now legal precedent!

    3. The refusal to allow the government to penalize, monetarily, states that refuse to expand their Medicaid eligibility requierements under this law is ALSO a first.. that could come back to haunt big govt types that use the federal government’s power of the purse to blackmail state governments. It places many federal govt programs that cut off funds for state noncompliance in legal question..Again, ANOTHER precedent that is giving pro-big government left wing jurists nightmares.

    4. Obamacare is STILL unpopular..and Roberts has now indelibly branded the mandate in the public’s mind as a TAX..a HUGE tax.. making Obama AND the Democrats in Congress who pretended that it wasn’t a tax..as liars who deceived the American people. and pulled a shell game. It also now has Obama breaking his promise NOT to tax those making less than $250,000 a year; it will actually impact the POOR! This a HUGE bludgeon with which to bloody Obama.. and we aren’t waiting around to take advanage of it! Americans for Prosperity, a conservative super-PAC, has already taken out a 9 million dollar media buy in swing states to point this out.

    5. MOST American voters oppose this law. Romney and the Republcians have promised to repeal it. Obama and the Democrats defend it. Not a good place to be if you are an incumbent running in an election year. This will not only affect the Presidential race.. but all races down ticket. Can you say..GOP US Senate?

    All in all... a short term victory lap for Obama and the Dems , but potentially a huge victory for the GOP both in November.. and long term in terms of some of the legal precedents set... IF we are aggressive, don’t let up thepressure and take full advantage of it!

    The liberals at the Huffington Post are despondent.

    Posted the following there as a wake up call to them:

    Have you learned something tonight?
    While you were loud and full of arrogant hype..we worked behind the scenes.
    The silent majority is still kind of silent..
    It is just no longer passive.
    We work quietly..to crush the opposition;
    We are decentralized, few leaders, true grassroots..but organized and mobilized.and we are LEGION!

    Problem for the Dems, however, is that the colleges have already graduated their classes and shut down for the summer. the out of state students are gone.
