    Re: Ted Cruz Gets Boos From Christians by Praising Israel

    It would appear to me that Libertarians and Conservatives that are actually Republican voters in sheep's clothing
    are having a difficult discussion with each other over Israel.

    With Rand Paul against foreign aid to Israel, Ted Cruz sees an opening to appease Sheldon Adelson.
    And of course Rand Paul is now a warhawk on ISIL while being an isolationist his entire political career.

    Cruz is trying to take a page out of Paul's book, tacking to a position opposite of Paul's.
    Cruz also recognizes that over 70% of Jewish-Americans vote for Democrats, and their voter turn-out is always high.

    What Cruz will learn before 2016 is that he's trying to play the wrong demographic.
    Since that's what this is; the GOP Presidential primaries have already started between Cruz and Paul .

    Someone incessantly whining in this thread about another poster calling Ted Cruz a "retard" is recognized for what it is.
    The height of hypocricy given what the USA has seen its President/Senate Majority Leader/House Minority Leader called by this very poster.
    Even likening those three to Charlie Manson .

    Say there’s a new “Popular Party” in the United States. The “Popular Party” policy initiatives include building a gigantic border fence down the middle of your city -- between you and your workplace. It’s staffed with exhausted, rude border control guards, who interrogate you every time you go to work, which causes the queue for the crossing to add an hour or more to your daily commute. There’s also a new policy that establishes a harsh customs process, which effectively has become an embargo on bringing even basic necessities and household goods to your home. The grocery store across the street barely has anything in stock, and even if they do, it costs an arm and a leg. Good luck on getting your hands on anything valuable! Have you bent over today for the "Popular Party" and their miserable policies?

    If you don't live in the sames states as the "Popular Party?" Well “Popular Party” still conscripts the extended members of your family, which is tragic, because they get into an extended few week long fight every couple of years that turns the next state over into rubble. They’re bureaucratic, tone deaf to the larger community’s concerns and the party leaders are clueless idiots. Basically, it's the world's largest and worst iteration of the American TSA, where the policies are mental and their sole purpose only seems to be to make everyone's life more difficult.

    Now imagine, Ted Cruz, the dolt comes to an event concerning the plight of Middle Eastern Christians, who are stuck in the path of ISIS, or are seeing their communities destroyed in Syria, or are being harassed in Egypt, and all of the other tragic events happening across the Middle East. Mr. Cruz, the dolt, comes and starts tangentially preaching how awesome the "Popular Party" is and how wonderful it is that they're making your and your community's life absolutely miserable. Maybe you should stand up a cheer at how smart Ted Cruz is, and not throw rotten eggs at the hot air windbag?

    Of course, it's also great now that American evangelical Christians have no comprehension of exactly WHAT you're booing about, to the point where they're concocting statements like "They are Hezzbollah supporters!" or there's a "substantial portion of the audience may embrace anti-Semitism!"

    Essential it's summarized beautifully by Jasper:

Same way lots of Americans can't stand Obama - are people opposed to Americans if they oppose Obama or some action by the Obama administration? Do Obama haters hate America?

    I think the topic was the support/money, pumped into Israel. Check the polls, on a good note, Israel is slipping in regards to American support. As pointed out by my daughter at university, the younger crowd sees things much differently, and soon they will be in leadership.

    To people that respect sovereign borders, the rule of law, international law, the Geneva convention, proportionate military response, UN resolutions, the ICC and everything else that works together to influence peace and justice.

    of course.. your daughter is being indoctrinate into the sesspool of "wackademia" where only progressive hate is tolerated.. the same mentality that does nto allow Conservative to even have a voice without a mob attacking it on campus.. but radical muslims are allowed.

    Im sure you are quite proud and happy that that is the agenda
