No, content is fine. I was mostly commenting on the fact that you didn't compile all of the responses into one post.

At this point, it's too late. Go ahead and talk.

Something I've noticed the US Government seems to be fond of doing is slashing social programs that cost very little and pumping more money into the DOD (which should probably be renamed the Department of Invasions.) The UFOers better be right, that they have Alien tech they're studying, or no way that expenditure is justified.

Well Cruz isn't a perfect candidate, but he's as close as we are gonna get.

Erm

um...

NO.


He is the right man for the job according to some Republicans. True conservatives love him. I mean, what's not to love? He doesn't back down to weak-knees Barry.
Ted Cruz gets a Grade A 97% liberty rating fromConservativeReview
You may not like conservative policy, but he isn't the devil everyone is making him out to be.

Ah.
Yeah, too lazy and impatient to bother with the details of the formatting to do that. I read a post, and if I have something to say, I hit "reply".

Ted Cruz is a ridiculous clown. That's my opinion, as an educated, aware, and up-to-date free-thinker.
I certainly don't expect everyone to agree with me.

But, I would hope that most American voters are able to make sound decisions when it comes to who is worthy of leadership. Cruz is not. Not able to make sound decisions, not able to discern who is worthy of leadership, and also not capable of being that leader.

AND! And, I would be all too happy to tell him that to his face.
Bring it, Ted! Calling you out!

Politicians are ridiculous clowns. That's my educated and aware opinion, as a free-thinker.


Well, that about sums up my stance on the matter. There are occasionally people like Sanders, but in this modern day and age they are very much the exception to the norm.

I would have called him a few other things too.

A backpedaler, for one. An opportunist for another.

Bring on the debate!


Interviewed in February 2014, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz declared that Syrian refugees should be permitted into the United States and argued that this could be done without jeopardizing national security.

"We have welcomed refugees -- the tired, huddled masses -- for centuries. That’s been the history of the United States," he told Fox News in a video featured on Cruz's website. "We should continue to do so." He added: "We have to continue to be vigilant to make sure those coming are not affiliated with the terrorists, but we can do that."

Since last week's Paris attacks, the GOP presidential candidate has been a fierce critic of the Obama administration's policy to permit some Syrian refugees into the United States. [Source]



Ted Cruz: "ANY TIME, ANY PLACE!"
Obama: "LOL!"

Now, I recognise that I am just a Brit with a brain, but if I outclass a person in terms of general knowledge and scientific awareness, and yet that other individual has a job involving backstopping and funding for space science, you have to wonder what business he has occupying his position.

He had better be a great debater, because he is under qualified in every other respect. The man is a vacuous dullard


Uhm, did you realize the individual you claim to "outclass in terms of general knowledge and scientific awareness" received a BA with honors from Princeton and a Juris doctorate with high honors from Harvard Law School? He also won top recognition at the National Debate Championships and the North American Debate Championships. He also has been called one of Harvard's smartest students by Alan Dershowitz.

Disagreeing with someone else's positions doesn't make them an idiot or a dullard... in fact, it seriously undermines your own position, especially when the person you're mocking has an IQ that likely crushes the vast majority of his peers.

Having a high IQ means one is good at IQ tests. It is at best a fairly inaccurate thing, and not a true representation of actual intelligence.

I also feel it is worth mentioning that Law has next to nothing to do with science.
Did he actually study science, or was it the arts at Princeton?

Hey, burd - I barely dare to post this.....to respond to you.....but,
having a high IQ (or a degree or two from elite schools) does not = a sensible world leader (or a socially skilled person). He can pass as many tests as he wants. What comes out of his mouth is what matters here -
and - it is unacceptable.
In My Opinion.

So he is knowledgeable as far as lawyers go. Great another lawyer.


True Brit was referring to him sitting on a SCIENCE board.


What are his qualifications on science again?

Kind of like Carson - he's a great neurosurgeon, a brilliant man in terms of medical surgery.
Doesn't make him qualified to lead this country.

I'm not suggesting he'd make a great president (nor am I suggesting he wouldn't.) What I am doing is stating that the people who claim Ted Cruz is a dummy, and I've seen many of them make that claim, are making themselves look like asses. Social tact, while wonderful for tea parties and such, is no indicator of intelligence. I'd vote for Cruz over Trump, Clinton, Sanders, Bush, or Kasich... that may be more of a statement of just how little I think of those 5 individuals rather than a statement of support to Cruz, though. I can't say he's said much which I disagree with, but I also can't think of much he's said that's been new to me, either.

Oh, he's actually a brilliant medical surgeon? I'd heard whispers on the grape vine he kind of sucked, but it might have just been propaganda.

He's a total nutter outside his specialized field, though. Not very good at history, either.
Probably a few similarities between him and Cruz, actually.

Thanks for expounding on your thoughts. Really appreciate it.
Honestly, I try to understand peoples' points of view, even if I disagree with them.

Crus is really smart. I can't stand him and think he's a horrible person and would make a horrible president, but I can't argue with the fact that he's very, very intelligent.

I would love to see Obama and Cruz debate an issue like this live with no moderators. That's real politics there. It will never happen.

I would say in response, that if Cruz wants to be seen as half as smart as his qualifications would suggest, then he ought to start damned well behaving as if he has the brains he has the paperwork for.

Further to that, Dershowitz is entitled to his erroneous opinion.

The fact remains that Cruz, routinely proves that he has no idea about the world around him, or any of the important things that happen upon it. He is, despite his education, a moron, and he is not a moron because I disagree with his opinion, but purely because he proves, on a regular basis, that reality, and what he thinks is happening are two entirely separate things.

He certainly does not deserve his place on the subcommittee I referred to, and I stand by my assertion that he had better be a damned good debater, because for all his education, he still gives every impression of having about as much wit as a gutter puddle.

Graduating with any degree from Princeton and Harvard with honors, however, is a pretty good barometer of intelligence.

Law may not fall under sciences, and his public policy degree from Princeton (essentially a poly science degree) may not directly tie to the sciences, but both of them heavily rely on critical thinking and questioning/testing theories. Those are two concepts which seem to get Ted in the most trouble, from what I've seen. The AGW adherents recoil in horror and fury at anyone who questions or tests the bought and paid for "consensus" on climate change, and God help you if you dare apply critical thinking to any social issues argument or government tax & spend program these days.

Cruz would eat Obama's lunch in a one-on-one debate. Cruz has not been my favorite candidate, but I have to say, he may be just what we need right now to stop this country from derailing any further. I know he would be a strict constitutionalist, and that is a good thing, imo.
