We may as well just get it over with once and for an elect a kardashian. Obama proved its not about skilled politicians, its about riding the pc progressive look-how-cool-I-am-voting-for-a-black-guy wave. Just substitute ~black guy~ with whatever the flavor of the day is and repeat four years later. That is no basis for a system of government.


Isn't that what the GOP is trying with The Donald? Basically just a rich entertainer.



Errmmmm....yes and no. I would put the Donald way ahead of all the kardashians combined in just about any context except sex tapes... and I am VERY happy to say that... As much of a cartoon character as he is, he is still a far better politician than any kardashian could ever be. God, this is depressing...


It is depressing and worse......you left out my favorite
PARIS HILTON FOR PRESIDENT!


Well at least the president would be getting bent over and on there knees as much as the American people for a change.

Hey FREE MARKET!

The market dictates wage, and benefits as it should, Competition creates incentives that makes goods cheaper, better ,and higher pay to keep people working.


You live in a "Leave it to Beaver" world....


I don't know which economic system you live under but the FREE MARKET has been dead since speculation replaced it.

Can someone tell me why a right wing fanatic is worse than a left wing fanatic?


How about because there are no left-wing fanatics in any important positions of power, while the right wing has a huge infrastructure?

In theory both are equally bad, but in our country the right has far too much power already.



Far to much power?

Maybe you haven't heard about the the NY District Attorney that literally just banned the possession or application for possession of firearms for ANY county prosecutors.

Maybe you missed that gay marriage just became legal via the conservative SC

Maybe you missed that crazy dingbat Davis that went to jail for refusing to issue licenses and who is now being called out by none other than fox news.

Maybe you have missed all the kids that have gotten suspended for making finger guns, pop tart guns and paper clip guns.

Maybe you missed that Black Students in Oakland Schools (in California) can no longer be suspended, for any reason.

Maybe you've missed the several occurrences of schools that have created exclusionary events for children (black students only, Mexican students only, etc.)

And also, are you serious about 'no left wing fanatics in any important positions"???!

Obama, Eric Holder, Lois Lerner, the actual head of the IRS, the extremist environmentalist head of the EPA, a young new Liberal judge on the Supreme court, John Kerry who has somehow contorted that global warming is actually the cause of terrorism, not the stuck in the 6th century, woman beating Imams.

There is a difference between UN-intentional ignorance and burying your head in the sand. I'm pretty sure you are guilty of the latter. Switch the channel from MSNBC every once in a while. It's hard to fathom you can truly believe what you have just said.

Well in this case, Ted Cruz is a theocrat.


Authoritarians come in all flavors. Left wing fanatics would be just as authoritarian, just without religion as an excuse.


The Left Wing is terribly authoritarian, they pretend to be for people's rights but it always only for a certain select group which they may highlight at various times and it's always for the agenda and for pushing more socialism, the welfare state, and totalitarian meddling in our lives. They whine and moan about how they don't want Republicans in their bedrooms, but they won't admit they are taking their bedrooms right into the classrooms...
Ted Cruz conducted an amazing filibuster which makes Progressives really really mad, they don't want a President who won't give in to their excessive demands for more Totalitarian govt. All this baloney about theocrats....when Democrats are right now and have been for 8 years enabling the ushering in of Sharia Law....when they tolerate Sharia but not the Christian base....
Cruz family fled the communist in Cuba and he knows what's what with all the socialist/communist stuff going on in the Democrats and the DSA of which many in Congress are members....it's not surprising Cruz would terrify all the statists.

As I said, perspective matters. Its easy to believe that there are no far-left politicians when you're own personal political beliefs are on the left end of the political spectrum (and before someone whines, yes, that same type of thing is true on the conservative side as well).

Meanwhile, the 'Blue Dog' Democrat coalition in Congress has gone extinct, as has the traditional southern Democrat. They've all manned the lifeboats and jumped ship. I've seen it personally in my own family, which was full of lifelong Democrats. I've seen it in this congressional district and this state, which voted Democrat for over 100 years up until about the last 10-15. I don't know if it'll ever vote Dem again. But no sir, that has nothing to do with a massive leftward shift in the party's national policies. I'm sure they'll keep telling themselves that.

Just so you know Neo, Trump has backed Progressive income tax too, and it's funny to see all the statists screaming and yelling how horrible he is when he would actually be helping their cause. That's why I doubt I will vote for Trump but if its between Trump and Sanders I might go for Trump just to keep that socialist out of the WH.

From the above vid. Good one.


Now please tell me just what that "secular" govt has done for us? Oh we are trillions in debt, fighting wars everywhere in every year, we are teetering on the brink of economic collapse of the dollar, our dollar is weak and lost I don't know something like 90 percent of its value with basically no gold to back it and no gold in the Treasury...
but hey Catholic Institutions have been forced to supply abortifacients to women and now all Americans are forced to purchase health insurance or get fined by the IRS...

yah way to go with secular!!!!
The Founding Fathers meant for our govt to respect religious diversity not eliminate religion altogether...that is what the seculars are missing, and it's the secular humanist RELIGION which dominates...its the relilgion of NO GOD
The Seculars not only do not tolerate Christians (which means they don't tolerate religious diversity) but they hate Christians with the abject hatred like Ive never seen before, and yet the they tolerate and even promote Islam and Sharia...even to the point of using taxpayer money to bailout a Sharia compliant insurance co.

Perhaps some of these seculars aren't really so secular but they are DEMOCRAT (mostly)

The 14th has to do with slavery and civil rights it has nothing to do with taxing greedy people.


READ IT Buster READ IT. Just slavery ? Guess them evil rich folks are the new slaves.That don't have any civil rights because they 'mob' says they don't.

Guess some people just miss what PROPERTY, EQUAL protections under the law mean.



All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.

www.law.cornell.edu...




If you believe this then you are delusional. The middle class cannot afford to have tax lawyers and accounts to find all the loopholes they can use like the wealthy can afford. Also many of the tax loopholes have to do with investing which the middle class cannot afford to do


www.huffingtonpost.com...

Yeah someone is delusional.




Every economic boom we have had in this country has always been due to trickle up. It is when we went to the failed trickle down which has never worked that this nations economy went to hell.


Hate to burst that bubble but NO.





People with brains already knows the answer to that because China's workers have no rights they are virtually slaves. That's why companies like Walmart gets their crap made there so they can pay people 20 bucks a week.


Why do Americans think they are better than the Chinese eh ?

Oh yeah they just love to buy cheap crap.

Are rich people a race now? I'm used to you making up nonsense to make your point but this takes the cake.



Yeah someone is delusional.

Maybe you should read your own link as to who makes up the percentage of people who don't pay taxes.


All in all, according to the Tax Policy Center, there will be 76 million nonpaying “tax units” in 2011. The Center defines a tax unit as “an individual, or a married couple who file a tax return jointly, along with all dependents of that individual or married couple.” And not all of those tax units represent the working class. Nine million nonpayers, or 12.8 percent of the total, are in the middle income quintile. Another 1.9 million -- 2.6 percent of the total -- are in the second-highest quintile, and some 443,000, or 0.6 percent of the total, are in the top quintile. The Tax Policy Center breaks down that last number a bit further: There are 78,000 non-paying units in the top 95th to 99th income percentile, 24,000 in the top 1 percentile, and 3,000 in the top tenth of a percentile.

So a good chunk are the poor wealthy people you constantly whine about.


Hate to burst that bubble but NO.

Where is your link that proves me wrong?


Why do Americans think they are better than the Chinese eh ?

So just because our workers have right we think we are better than the Chinese? So you want people to be slaves to companies? Sorry forgot who I was talking to of course you do.

This will be my fourth ATS presidential election cycle. If history is any indicator, the board will be absolutely flooded with this type of thread before long. There was indeed a big Ron Paul contingent around here at one time. I was mostly indifferent to his candidacy and can't tell you anything specific about how that argument went around here, though.

Yes, but this thread was posted by an anti-Cruz person. So I was wondering if this happened with the anti-Ron Paul people, too, because IME, if there is one thing I have learned from straw polls, it's that they are very easy to swamp in your favor.

Ron Paul won straw poll after straw poll, but in the big picture it meant absolutely nothing. The contingent of Ronulans were nothing if not dedicated and new how to win the small straw polls though and they got their ground game out impeccably.

Oh My God.

With all due respect, you REALLY need to stop listening to Limbaugh.

The paranoia exhibited as a result of your following him is dazzingly, glaringly, spectacularly FANTASTIC. As in:

A FANTASY

I feel bad for you from time to time. It's astounding that you have such a negative world-view. How did that happen?

What is wrong with HUMANISM? We are humans. We are a tribal, social species. We have to be able to get along!!!

There is no "abject hatred" - there is simply indignation that "Christians" think they are better than anyone, and not beholden to their own countrymen - in no way expected to contribute to the "common good.". MANY of them don't feel they have to acknowledge the RIGHTS of everyone else......

(And I'm guessing that you think Catholics aren't "really Christians", but here it is: POPE FRANCIS is right. So is BERNIE SANDERS. So is the DALAI LAMA........)

Meanwhile, NO ONE is taking away ANY of your "LEGAL rights"!

Cruz wants a THEOCRACY. What do you not understand about that?????


Here’s the script of Cruz’s new ad, named “Blessing.”
“Were it not for the transformative love of Jesus Christ, I would have been raised by a single mom without my father in the household.

God’s blessing has been on America, from the very beginning of this nation.

Over and over again, when we faced impossible odds, the American people rose to the challenge. This is our fight, and that is why I’m running for president of the United States.”

Three seconds into the spot, viewers see the Cruz family praying. Twelve seconds into the ad, viewers see some other children praying. Twenty seconds in, viewers see yet another person praying.






Aren't you one of the people who insist none of them want a theocracy? Source



Ted Cruz Tells Hate Group: Only Way to Save U.S. is by Turning it into a Theocracy (Video)


Pull your head out of wherever it is, PLEASE!!!


Well, while speaking to the American Family Association (a known anti-gay hate group), Cruz said that the only way this country can be saved is for evangelicals to rise up and vote for politicians who’ll pass legislation based upon Biblical principles.
