Re: For President: Ted Cruz

Along with that, he encouraged Republican voters to support them down ticket. No, that is not what he said at all. His exact quote was "if you love our country, and love our children as much as you do, stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you tr...

Re: For President: Ted Cruz

Trump shouldn't have invited him then... Why not? Cruz is arguably the second-highest profile republican in the country today, second only to Trump himself. Trump invited him with the intention of trying to unite the party. I don't believe for one second that Cruz was too stupid to understand why h...

Re: For President: Ted Cruz

No man, at least one that loves his wife could honestly support someone that did that. Then he had no business speaking at the convention. It is quite clear he intends to run in 2020, and that he believes his chances are far better if Hillary wins in 2016. Would you at least agree that this creates...

Re: For President: Ted Cruz

I can sum up Ted Cruz in two words - SOUR GRAPES.
sour grapes wrote:used to refer to an attitude in which someone adopts a negative attitude to something because they cannot have it themselves.
Cruz may be a principled conservative, but I don't think his principles are what drove him to not endorse Trump.

Re: For President: Ted Cruz

You mean Hillary voters like NS and LNF that did it to mess with party? The rules are the rules. I didn't create them - the RNC did, and Trump played by those rules. So to quote Hillary, "at this point, what difference does it make" who voted in the primaries? That, and there's no evidence to sugge...

Re: For President: Ted Cruz

Cruz's speech was excellent and held to his principles, which is a sign of strength, not weakness as MW mentioned. I didn't have a problem with the bulk of his speech. But the end of his speech was clearly a snub of Trump and thus of the republican party. Maybe if Donald publicly apologized he woul...

Re: For President: Ted Cruz

Trump fanboys are so delusional. The guy is a clown and is unworthy of representing the party. Trump won the nomination. Period. You as an individual voter don't have to support Trump, but the party does, because he won the nomination by the rules set forth by the party. And when you are invited to...

Re: For President: Ted Cruz

Rumor has it that the Trump campaign KNEW what Cruz was going to say, knew that he wasn't going to endorse, but let him speak in a prime spot anyways. Contrary to what people are saying, I think this HELPS Trump politically. First off, Cruz managed to do what nobody else has been able to do - and th...

Re: Melania Copies The First Lady?

Melania's speech - start to finish- was nothing but cliches and platitudes..They're not controversial. They require no fact checking. They look attractive and are meant to appeal to the widest audience possible. Is that a problem? She is nothing more than a prospective First Lady. What do you expec...

Re: OK With Open Carry? Or Would You Run?

I think everybody here would agree that comparative stats can be used inappropriately. "There's lies, damned lies, and statistics" - I'm not disputing that. But you're essentially advocating for relying on anecdotal evidence over compiled evidence - in other words, a sample size of 1 vs a sample siz...

Re: Prediction: Trump will win the general election.

Did you like Melania Trump's speech? Or did you like it better when Michelle Obama gave the same speech? This was a really big blunder, and upon reading a CNN article about it, it is unclear who is responsible. You have campaign sources saying that Rick Gates is responsible for overseeing the speec...

Re: Prediction: Trump will win the general election.

It is all about perception, and to the extent this is being covered in the 24/7 news cycle, that is what the rest of the world is seeing. Not to mention, President Obama has been making a big deal out of this. And I do think that these events, as isolated as they are, are damaging race relations in ...

Of yeah. I'm sure all you modern day gun slingers fancy yourselves heroes. Never a gun owner who accidently shoots and kills a friend, family member, or yourselves. Perish the thought! Not you puffed up, crack shot, crackpots. Of the 31,513 gun deaths in 2010, only 600, or just under 2 percent, wer...

Re: Prediction: Trump will win the general election.

You all can say what you want about Trump, but his last several tweets are, albeit a bit exaggerated, far closer to how I feel about what is going on that anything Hillary or Obama are putting forth: We are TRYING to fight ISIS, and now our own people are killing our police. Our country is divided a...
