Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
But as I said, Cruz's future actions will be closer to the date of elections and every indication from the last one is that it will be just as destructive for his cause. For that reason it should be covertly encouraged by the Dem powers that be. But only covertly.
Cruz and his bagger cohorts will very likely carefully weigh the political climate before embarking on the same stupid task again. That makes it pretty unlikely even though they need to keep up appearances now to make it out as a success. They're in a difficult position, firstly because the mainstream GOP has turned against them even though it's not made public for obvious reasons. And secondly, because there is no indication that it will be more successful the next time than it was this time.
Another issue to note is the forced reception Cruz received from his supporters in Texas. A standing ovation that lasted for 6 or 7 minutes went overboard for the credibility factor. Had it been limited to a minute it would have been more convincing for the audience that it was intended for. In essence, they knew it was all a lost cause for Cruz and they wanted to have it displayed as something different for them at least. It failed because of the absurdity of 7 minutes standing and clapping.
I'm anxious to see how Cruz will play it out the next time. I know it won't be in the same manner but I can't imagine how he will modify it to make it less damaging to the country in the eyes of the people. His big problem now is, if he doesn't try it again then he will be condemned by the feeble minds that think it was a positive move for him. He'll obviously have to resort to something less effective that doesn't have teeth.
Or how about having somebody else carry the ball for him and then he takes to opposing in some way? Could he pull that off to make him look like the responsible 'good guy' politician? He obviously has to come up with some kind of ingenious plan because right now he's dead meat as a presidential candidate. Bagger support won't do it within the Repub party.
Thats why that whole shut down was so retarded and why Obama shares at least a significant portion of the blame. He already insists that the business mandate was screwed up and must be delayed. Rather than have a logical discussion about delaying the private mandate, he acted like a little spoiled child. Now...he looks not only like a little child but incompetent to boot.
Oh..and heres the REALLY fun part...watching all the 'supporters' of the ACA jumping ship like rats. Gosh...they never knew they were supporting such bad legislation!
Plus, the GOP isn't trying to derail Obamacare over any sense of duty to the American people. They literally want the law to make things worse, because that helps them politically.
One of you will end up here next!

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
