He was considered a "underdog" last year and kicked ass!
Seems like a "real" Republican
His role model is Milton Friedman!

The government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem.

Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program.

The only way that has ever been discovered to have a lot of people cooperate together voluntarily is through the free market. And that's why it's so essential to preserving individual freedom.

The most important single central fact about a free market is that no exchange takes place unless both parties benefit.

That man was REALLY about freedom
Cant' stand him....he's an insane sleazeball.

Really? Can you point out his insanity? I certainly haven't seen it.

One, he's a Tea Partier. Two, he's representing Texas. Three, he's been touted as the new darling of the Republican Party, yet embarrassed himself on numerous occasions. Four, he's a Republican. Five, he's an asshole.

Umm.... SO many stereotypes used and broad brushing there. Aren't self proclaimed "liberals" supposed to be tolerant and not be broad brushing and stereotyping? Do you not practice the philosophy?

Can you not keep it factual and impersonal? Must you personally attack the opposition? Or are you able to name some specifics of policy you disagree with instead?

Last I checked, being from Texas isn't a indicator of insanity any more than being black, or gay, is. Right?

And just FYI - Just because the tea party groups endorsed him does not make him a "tea partier" in fact, he distanced himself from them as much as possible during his last campaign.

The dude is a lawyer who was scooped up from private practice and appointed to his first political office, that of solicitor general for the state of Texas.. He was the first Hispanic so appointed, the youngest person ever to hold the position in the US and also the longest serving SG in state history.

Minorities are okay with you only if they are democrats?

Please. It's not like your side doesn't stereotype, is it? And please stop stereotyping liberals as "tolerant"...which is used as a control and a defuser. We are tolerant when it is reciprocated.
And no, I cannot keep it impersonal, but I always keep it factual. The entire Republican platform I disagree with. As time goes on, I'll go into detail.
And though I was born in Houston, I was raised in Chicago, and returned to Houston for high school and two years of college, I cannot stand Texas, its' backwardness, and its' racism and bigotry.
And yes, minorities and whites are ok with me if they identify as Democrats or liberals. Sorry.

I mean really - unlike President Obama, we have Cruz's senior thesis, his college records, you name it. 1995 magna cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School, a primary editor of the Harvard Law Review, and executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, and a founding editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review. Professor Alan Dershowitz said, “Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant."

I'm yet to see Obama's Harvard Law School records, or his thesis, or anything really from his college years.

He's authored more than 80 United States Supreme Court briefs and presented 43 oral arguments, including nine before the United States Supreme Court. In the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Cruz drafted the amicus brief signed by attorneys general of 31 states, which said that the D.C. handgun ban should be struck down as infringing upon the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Cruz also presented oral argument for the amici states in the companion case to Heller before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Cruz has been named by American Lawyer magazine as one of the 50 Best Litigators under 45 in America, by The National Law Journal as one of the 50 Most Influential Minority Lawyers in America, and by Texas Lawyer as one of the 25 Greatest Texas Lawyers of the Past Quarter Century.

Not bad for a Canadian born son of a Cuban immigrant!

I don't have a side. Now you're ASSUMING, a very intellectually LAZY thing to do. Check out my threads on gay rights, abortion, and some other liberal issues before you stereotype ME, s0n. I'm a A gay/female/black/abortion/separation of church and state/free speech supporting Atheist rightwinger? You need to check yourself.

That's not what I asked. The meter was:

Minorities are okay with you only if they are democrats?

Tread carefully now...

Doesn't offer up one quote, not one example of any insults or slander. You're linking us to a blog post that doesn't back up its own assertions.
