In fact, this Bush alum recalls, "the quickest way for a meeting to end would be for Ted to come in. People would want out of that meeting. People wouldn't go to a meeting if they knew he would be there. It was his inability to be part of the team.

www.motherjones.com...

It sounds like Ted Cruz won't get anything accomplished. People like Clinton won't let anything stop "progress", and the federal government has been out there "doing things to solve problems". Everything the feds do to solve problems have made the problems much much worse. Its socialist crown jewel Social Security has made the entire economy insecure as it breaks in bankruptcy for example. I could go off on a laundry list but I think most people reading this know the feds only screw things up when they do something. Obama is always saying how we have to "do something". So, Ted Cruz's possible inability to get anything accomplished due to being "a nasty person" would be a factor of ten better than another Obamacare, would it not?

Can you imagine if Ted Cruz went into a congressional meeting and they all left! Wow, what a dream come true for an improved America. No more "do something!" ideas to destroy America further. No more meetings about how the government is there "to help" (and accidentally wrecked on a road to hell, all paved with good intentions of course). If someone says "we need to do something" please let them know the whole problem is that Americans just need to be LEFT ALONE.

So, "LET'S DO NOTHING!"
Ted Cruz 2016

There can be no better badge of honor than the well earned impertinence of congress.

That qualification alone makes him shine like ten thousand diamonds.

My only revision to the credo would be "let's at least do nothing if not undo most things".

Most every citizen that pays attention hates Congress in my opinion. If Congress hates him well I believe we found our guy. I've been on board from before he announced. His background is pretty superior than anything we currently have running. He doesn't have his party backing him for crying out loud. You want corruption out, it sounds like we found a boy scout that believe in the constitution.

Yea I've always been a firm believer of Congress just stopped forcing bad laws down our throat we would be fine. The markets would have a better understanding of what to expect.

I'm kind of glad you brought this up.
I guess there is some real validity to what you are saying.
We could save a lot of money to STOP Social Security; grandma don't need no stinking groceries.
We could "dynamite" Hoover Dam and all the others to let the rivers run free; it would be better for the environment.
We could stop helping the states for the schools and teachers; these kids don't need no educating, that's the parents job.
We could stop putting all the money in the "highway fund" down the "rat hole" of the roads and bridges; they just keep getting worn out anyway.
And this is just some to get started.

See when you think about it, there are lots of government programs which can be eliminated so we could have more money to give to the "military industrial complex" for bigger and better guns; so we can kill more of our enemies. And if we don't have enough enemies yet, I am sure Israel will tell him who is next.

Yea that's a good idea, let's celebrate Congress not doing anything for another 4 years. Like him or hate him, I'd prefer compromise over stubborn inaction.

We elected these yahoos for the specific purpose to put up with the other elected yahoos. THAT'S their job, so dammit, they better suck it up and deal with him if he's elected.

I keep hearing it over and over again that people in pol-biz just do not like him. Around here, it is probably just a shallow hatred of all things Christian (and he is pretty overtly religious) but, in DC, it's a deep burning scorn for his command of his faculties and preparedness to joust at the drop of a hat.

Well said...not sure if you are s football (American) fan...but it reminds me of Tim Tebow.

I'm an agnostic because I'm not ignorant enough to say I know X. Today people are becoming more bigoted when they hear someone is a Christan. I think this is the biggest criticism people have of Cruz.

Yes, hypocrisy seems to be an ideal in and of itself when to comes to bigotry among the left.

Not only is Cruz a Christian but he is an anointed king according to his father. That could be one reason he's so nasty. He thinks he's the second coming.

"Ted Cruz's Father Suggested His Son Is 'Anointed' to Bring About 'End Time Transfer of Wealth' "

"In a sermon last year at an Irving, Texas, megachurch that helped elect Ted Cruz to the United States Senate, Cruz' father Rafael Cruz indicated that his son was among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as "kings" to take control of all sectors of society, an agenda commonly referred to as the "Seven Mountains" mandate, and "bring the spoils of war to the priests", thus helping to bring about a prophesied "great transfer of wealth", from the "wicked" to righteous gentile believers".

Wouldn't that suggest that he is a Christian socialist?

I see no evidence of that but, he is a firm believer in the separation of church and state so, maybe?

Also, does that mean that Obama is a communist since his father was?

Wait, can you show a source where Obama's father said Obama is a communist like Cruz's father said Ted is an anointed king? This has nothing to do what the fathers are or were, but what they say about their son(s). This isn't about Obama, this is about Cruz. Otherwise your argument has no relevance or merit.

Okey doke, seems like a subtle distinction.

What influence does Ted's dad have on anyone who isn't Ted?

Absolutely nothing. This isn't about anyone else who isn't Ted. The thread states Ted is a nasty guy. And the fact if Ted believes he is one of the anointed kings like his father said he is, could be a reason. Maybe Ted thinks everyone else is wrong because he has the divine mantle placed on him by his father. Plus the fact, besides the father, Tea Party members kissed his ass with the Jesus comparison made his head even bigger.

I love how, and usually it is republicans/conservatives saying this...I love how people don't like politicians that want to negotiate with the other side...like republicans working with democrats. Isn't that how life is supposed to work?

I've been in the military, on the board of education, ran my own business and worked in various other businesses, also worked in non profits and community groups and political affiliation never came up.

We would identify a problem and work together to get it resolved. We would usually have to brainstorm together, vote together, negotiate together, work together, study it together, go to meetings together, be on committees together and be in work sessions together. It's only in American politics that we don't want to work together or want our politicians working together. LOL

How retarded is that?

Business example. Printer is down. Group discussion-you put in an IT ticket and can I borrow your printer...oh you're a democrat and I'm an independent. Sorry I can't share your printer it's against my principles. LOL Oh and he's a communist, forget we had that discussion, I'll call IT myself.

We want republicans, independents and democrats and socialists and Libertarians to all work together. Only an imbecile wouldn't work together with someone to solve a problem or a small child having a temper tantrum.

It's both that simple and not that simple.

When negotiating with totalitarians, what compromise can there be?

1. Present evidence social security benefits society. Personally I find the idea ridiculous. I'll take 15% of your money and give it back 40 years later at 0% interest? Or maybe I'll just go bankrupt and not pay it like the Social Security trust fund. Hmmm, not a good deal.
2. Present evidence the Hoover Dam had a positive cash return over its first 30 years of operation. They could have found electricity other ways as you know. Who knows, maybe you'll find evidence that the government didn't screw something up for once. Miracles happen and I'd love for you to let me know how that went.
3. Present evidence public schools are more effective at providing an educated society than having no public schools.
4. Present evidence that a government system of public roads works better than a private system of private roads. Surely you must at least be able to do that.

I think if you are going to steal people's money and spend it on your causes in public education by taking it without permission by taxation, then you should have some evidence you immoral system of theft at least produces a positive impact on society.

Real government as you know is by consent of the governed, no? Is a real social contract is negotiable and cancelable? Step 1: Get permission to take my money for your grandma's groceries. Step 2: Take it. I respect your property right to spend your money as you wish, and ask the same in return.

I live in a state that admits I have the RIGHT to revolution. The right. Do I have to be part of *your* system of extracting other people's money for wars, corrupt officials, and myriad of stuff I never asked for shoved down my throat? Can I opt out, or do you want to force me at gun point to be a part of your system of chaos?

Really, how has your system of compromise been working out so far in congress? They compromise on everything, especially their moral values. Explain to me an example of how congress has compromised and we are just so much better off now because of it. Oh my God good luck! Look forward to your reply. I'll feel like I've seen a unicorn after you show this to me and we'll all be happy.

If we had a non corrupt and honest congress I would agree with you.

However our congress does nothing but pass regulations that is beneficial to the Oligopolies in charge and puts the burden on the American middle-class.

Look at the things they do when they take actions: Pass the patriot act, TPP, Make it illegal for States to label GMO products, Bailouts, Obamacare, etc......

Even when they do something that looks good its main intention is to benefit the Oligopolies in charge. Sure , Obamacare and health coverage for everyone sounds good.

However, the system they have in place is not about helping those that need help but to rape the American Public to increase the bottom line for the insurance companies that helped draft Obamacare.

3 largest healthcare insurance provider after obamacare came into play (Notice the trend in earnings and forecast): Pure coincedence the insurance companies helped draft those regulations.


Also with the net neutrality.

Congress was about to kill net neutrality and had all the cards lineup. They swapped the cable industries lobbyest head for the FCC head and had their finger on the trigger, but thankfully Google,Netflix, and Amazon lobbied to make them stop.

Google ,netflix,amazon, didn't do it because they aren't evil they did it because it would have killed their business overnight. Luckily for us their business model is more consumer friendly then the established ISP oligopoly

Typically I agree with most of your posts, but I will have to respectfully disagree with you on this. I truly believe having an inactive corrupt congress is a good. thing.
