Leaving the GOP

I have been on a number of sites recently that have large numbers of Cruz fans there.

One theme keeps running through the narrative; Now that Trump is in they are leaving the GOP. I understand their disdain for Donald but I do have something that I would like to ask them.

Why choose now to leave? Because the GOP was just a-Okay up until Trump?

So you were good when Bush senior passed new gun control legislation ,signed us up for globalization and “The new world order” then drove us into a recession that ended his career?

Or maybe it was great under Bush the Junior. He gave us medicare part D, no child left behind and after swearing that we would not be nation building, embroiled us in 2 decades long wars that cost thousands of American lives.

Under the Bush tenure we were also given DHS, TSA, warrantless wire taps and most favored nation status for China.

During the GWB administration the size of our national debt and federal government doubled. Yeah! Good times!

So now ,i f we flash forward to 2010 we can see how much better the party is by then. 2010 gave us the takeover of the congress by the TEA party; A majority that was squandered by the party leaders. It was not only squandered but TEA party members were actually penalized by the party regulars for trying to reign in Obama’s out of control administration. They were removed from, or denied places on committees and given no power positions whatsoever

This continued into 2012 when the majority in the senate was regained. Now fully controlling both houses, the Republicans led by Mitch “The turtle” McConnel  and the illustrious John “Yellow stain” Boehner, sold out their constituents and handed every single thing to the Obama administration that it wanted.

They funded Obamacare, They funded legislation for naturalizing illegals, they funded legislation that stopped deportation and did nothing at all to stop the tide of executive actions flooding out of the white house.

And then under Paul Ryan they sold out on the budget to the tune of 1.1 trillion dollars allowing the administration to fund whatever it wanted.

The Republicans during this time also gave us the super committee, the Corker bill and that most onerous legislation of all; The NDAA 2012 which has provisions for the indefinite military detention of American citizens

And now the Cruz voters are telling me ” That’s it, I’m leaving the party”

Seriously?

Now you think the party has gone to hell?

A lot of Ted Cruz fans are going to be crying in their Cheerios this morning

But for better or for worse the Trump train is rolling

I would call this a punitive action by the GOP voters for the betrayals of past elections

I think the Ryan budget was the final straw for many

If the GOP wants to survive as a party it had better take heed

Hey Reince how is that “You can just go sit down”  Thing working for you?

Possibly the left’s most stupid Religous/racial attack on Ted Cruz

“A columnist who came under fire last year for a Twitter tirade against a Republican National Committee staffer on Wednesday forced MSNBC to apologize for her insinuation that country music is virulently anti-Muslim.

The slur came during a “Now w/Alex Wagner” segment about Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz’s remarks to “CBS This Morning” that he started listening to country music after the 9/11 terror attacks because he wasn’t happy with how rock musicians reacted.

The explanation by Cruz, who has become the first candidate to announce an official campaign for president in 2016, prompted derision from liberal media outlets.

MSNBC guest Jamilah Lemieux opened a panel conversation on the comments with a blunt declaration that “nothing says ‘let’s go kill some Muslims’ like country music, fresh from Lynchburg, Virginia. Someone who obviously does not want to be a polarizing candidate, he wants to bring people together, I mean – really? That’s absurd.”

You just can’t argue with stupid. On the upside, you can beat it on the head until it stops spouting its ignorance.

Cruz: Democrats want to pack court with judges to protect ObamaCare

I think that Cruz has it all wrong; I think it is much more insidious than that.This is the only way to pull off a Hugo Chavez. I would expect to see a sudden death or retirement due to “illness” on the SCOTUS. This is their last chance to get the brass ring and they have waited one hundred years to get it. Do you really think they will stop now? We will find out soon enough.

Ted Cruz kicking the Republicans in the ass, goes up anther notch

Calling it “a dirty little secret,” Cruz said Republicans “would very much like to cast a symbolic vote against raising the debt ceiling and nonetheless to allow our (Democratic) friends on the left side of the aisle to raise the debt ceiling.”  Cruz is saying what we already know ; The elitist Republican scum that are in office are no better than the Democrats.   At this point we have no alternatives or options. Votes no longer matter when the media chooses the candidates and the cheat machines go into full swing. Don’t forget who started TSA and DHS.
