And yes...we might as well skip the first step (as you say). America was lost 6 years ago and there's no fixing it. Shed a tear for it if you must, but don't pretend that your own recalcitrance didn't play a part in the event.
I look forward to the Ted Cruz eligibility riots. Enjoy. It should be better and longer lasting than the 911 Truther movement.
You ever wonder where we'd be at today if Reagan had been less accommodating to the proglibs and more like a Democrat in his unwillingness to work with the opposition party? And, do you think that is the direction this country is heading? Dictators violating the Constitution at every turn to further their own vision and agendas?
It seems to me that if we stoop to their level, we have lost already. If we play by the rules while allowing them to cheat, we have lost already. It's a bit of a paradox, isn't it?
I'd ask you to consider that you have been influenced by the last election cycle's propaganda and lies. Perry is a fine choice for POTUS. He has shown a willingness to respond to the voice of the people when appropriate. People say he's "stupid"...but they said the same of Reagan, didn't they?
And...if you're looking for perfection, Reagan wasn't perfect either. He was just so much better than Carter it made him appear so.
You might say he's one of the elite. I seriously doubt it. They certainly haven't been doing him any favors that I've seen in the last twenty years or so.
Maybe a better direction to steer this conversation is to ask you what qualifications and traits you would expect in a "perfect" President. Then we could compare and contrast based on that criteria. The results might well shock you.
As for Cruz, I'm not liking his chances. That doesn't distress me too much because I don't think he's the best choice we have out there right now. I think his intentions are honest enough, but that could all be attributed to really good acting and strategy. The truth is that the man is an untested and unaccomplished junior Senator. Then there's the inevitable challenges to his eligibility. Founded or unfounded, I think we can agree that someone IS going to make it an issue if it looks like he might get the nomination. It will probably be the Republican leadership elites (with a little egging on from the ProgLib trolls).
Bottom line...if he gets the nomination I'll stand behind him as long as he's deserving of it...but I won't vote for him in a primary.
The good news is that we only have a month to wait before we find out how the elections went. Then we'll see how many new communist RINO's we've elected to lord over us.
