Who are you going to vote for?

I know you're in a foreign country and you aren't registered and aren't even an American, but don't let that stop you. Somewhere, you're probably already registered!

lolz

I've decided to vote for the person that progressives hate the worst.

I'm going to make it a fun election season.

I'll endorse, in writing, the person who garners the most hate-posts on ATS.

For the record, I thought he gave a good speech (Cruz).

And as some of the posts here indicate, he is definitely in the running.


Hee is a novel idea.....

Why not vote for someone who is the BEST candidate ? Not just vote in a partisan game to piss off the other side?


Why can't they be one in the same?

My vote will be going towards the person who wants smaller government, smaller government control, less spending, less taxes.

That alone would piss off any progressive!


True but its seems the fundie Religious side of the GOP are anything but those idea.

Ok they want smaller welfare. But they seem have a obsession with big military, big police and lot and lots of laws regulating people lives as they view it there job to dictate morality.

Lets see:


Cruz opposes same-sex marriage

Government especially the feds should keep out of that
Unnecessary regulation.




Cruz opposes the legalization of marijuana,


Again Unnecessary regulation.

Should it not be up to the individual what they put into there bodies?





Fierce advocate of recruiting and growing the military.


Your military is already bigger than the top 10 nation COMBINED

How is it small government to expand it further?

Supreme Court will decide gay marriage.

States will decide pot legality.

So that leaves the military. Which has (in my long lifetime) been spat on and treated as second-class citizens by all politicians for far too long.

What a xenophobic comment. Id expected better from you.

No I would no disrespect another country by illegally voting.

I find it insulting you would accuse me of such a thing!


I may have a opinion but its just that a opinion on a INTERNATIONAL forum nothing more.

There is a huge difference to treating the military better by providing better benefits.


And then there is rampant military spending for a HUGE MIC that is far far far opposite from the idea of small government.

It depends on what that military is used for.

A strong military for defense of the realm is a alot different from a large military that goes stomping round the world subjecting people to its will and nation building.

Then it doesn't matter the size of the military.

What matters is the character of the politician.

I took that to mean that if you could get to the states you could probably vote in some states.
If I was able to cross the border, I could probably find a way to vote.

No I.D. needed in all places........just show up and vote

As much as US politics effects the UK I would not do such a disrespectful thing.

I would(maybe)
but not without researching all the issues and candidates very seriously.
We have to see the fiasco that the US elections are on TV, so.........

It would be disrespectful without the proper research though. That would just be wrong.

I would also not vote for a Cuba American born in Alberta Canada. .......seems kind of hypocritical after the birthed issues Obama had.

It's a little more complicated than that, even without an ID. Not to say it's impossible because I've done it (I was curious if I could) but you can't just walk up to a polling station and vote. You need to impersonate someone, and for that you need the name/address of the person you're impersonating, sometimes their SSN, and you need to know where their polling place is.

LMAO. Look at all the hate rhetoric. All lined up....same old faces.

What a hoot! If your religious, you're now labeled a religious nut. Guffaw.

Methinks they doth protest too much.

The man talks about our history, our achievements in the face of humongous odds. About the Constitution and law.

It has started, the message, the restoration, the recovery has begun. The idea and the ideal rebroadcast. To a nation sorely in need of it.

The left worshippers are terrified.....

Funny how they didn't worry about the black liberation theology of Obama's mentor, Rev, Wright.

It wouldn't be the first time.


As far as Cruz's eligibility to run, while I don't feel that I'm likely to vote for Cruz, if his story is straight, then he is eligible to run.

That being said, he should have to provide a birth certificate for both himself, and records for his mother to back up his claim.

No waiting multiple years, no ignoring the issue until it becomes the focal point of the election, just show the records, and get it over with.

Every source I've read, from CNN, and Politico, to the fringes seems to agree that he's eligible, provided he's not lying, so if the paperwork matches the story being given, this is a non-issue.
CNN
Politico
Politifact
DCxposed

I'm not going to get into the "Obama's birth certificate was fake" debate; it's a moot point at this juncture. Cruz saw fit to get into the birther fray when it was about Obama, he should put it all out there for public scrutiny now.

As an aside, this situation should be more than enough (especially after the Obama fiasco) for the SCOTUS to finally settle this matter, and put forth EXACTLY what a 'Natural Born Citizen' is, in plain and simple language.

Hey Professor,

I think your post is fair-minded and I learned something interesting from reading the politifact article:



Defining "natural born"

So what is a "natural born" citizen? The Constitution doesn’t specifically say.

In 2008, we reviewed research and polled several legal experts. The consensus was that someone is a "natural born" citizen if they have citizenship at birth and don’t have to go through a naturalization process to become a citizen.

If that’s the definition, then Cruz is a natural born citizen by being born to an American mother and having her citizenship at birth. (This same logic would apply to Obama, even if he were born in another country, which he wasn’t.)

The Congressional Research Service published a report on the issue after the 2008 election; the agency is tasked with providing authoritative research to all members of Congress. It, too, supported the thinking that "natural born" citizenship means citizenship held "at birth."

But the Supreme Court -- the ultimate arbiter of constitutional questions -- has never ruled on the matter. And that means a note of uncertainty remains.


Link

So this means that even if Obama had been born in Kenya, it would have been okey dokey for him to be President.
I'm floored. I thought the whole argument was that if he had been born in another country, he would NOT be eligible for the Presidency, even though his mother was a US citizen. That was the entire crux of the matter behind asking for his birth certificate.

So really, no one needed to see his birth certificate all along - it didn't matter.

Wow.

Heheh. Yeah, "the left" is terrified of Ted Cruz.

Out of a potential field of 9 or 10, he's been at 8 or 9 for how long now? In every poll?

A man who obviously buys into his dad's belief that the Christian god has ordained that he will be the next President.

I may vote for him myself!


Yet, in terms of "the Left" quivering in our boots, facts say that the worst possible Democratic candidate, in my opinion, still holds double digit leads against ALL of the Republican field.

CNN/O RC Poll: Hillary Clinton Maintains Double-Digit Lead Over All Republican Hopefuls Surveyed

I guess we'll all just have to wait and see, eh?
