    I would like a repeat of 1964 when they went to the far right to pick a candidate who was roundly rejected by the American people an the fallout was seen downballot pretty much from coast to coast. Cruz or Paul would do that just nicely.

    Well, at least we know one thing; you know nothing about Ted Cruz. So don't comment on him anymore until you know about him, which will be never. Stay home, don't vote. You are uninformed and are hurting my country.

    It should be left to the states.

    He is nothing more than the intellectual inheritor of anita bryant, getting away with whatever he can to secure the bigot votes. If he was running 2008, he'd be proposing an amendment to ban gay marriage altogether, just as Bush II did

    He's a bastard

    But I do disagree with her in regards to her blanket statement about opposition to Cruz.
    I am opposed to him because he is not a natural born citizen.
    He was born in Canada, was a Canadian citizen and owed his allegiance to Canada when he was born.
    He wasn't even considered a citizen under the 14th amendment. His citizenship was conferred upon him by statute, which is not a natural born citizen.


    Anybody who opposed Obama because he is not a natural born citizen for not being born of citizens (plural) and owing allegiance to two other countries at birth, is being a hypocrite if they support Cruz running.
    I didn't make a blanket statement about why people oppose Cruz. I said that the issue of where he was born was only important to people who oppose the idea of him being elected President. The people who plan to support him don't care, as long as it's confirmed that he's qualified.

    Cruz had dual citizenship. His mother was an American citizen, and his father was a Cuban refugee. Cruz was raised and educated in the United States. And he was a citizen of the United States from birth. He got Canadian citizenship because Canada grants citizenship to people born there. There isn't any reason to think he has allegiance to Canada. His parents left there when he was 4 years old.

    IMO, he's more concerned with the constitutionality of rulings that go against the will of the state's people.

    He also gave up his Canadian citizenship.
