“People of faith should vote for a man they believe in,” Tait said. “A man they feel can do the job, not falter, not say one thing before the election and do another whole thing after the election, a man that stands his ground, keeps his word, protects our freedom — that’s who you should vote for.”
It’s not just people of faith that should do this. It’s everybody. Regardless of faith / non-belief, color of skin, or political affiliation. If they did, they would support Ted Cruz 100% also.

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
GEORGE WASHINGTON, Farewell Address, Sep. 17, 1796
Easy…..that statement cuts both parties equally deep when the people and its best interests are forgotten, and personal interests are pushed to the forefront.
The past two decades the ‘most’ important agenda the republican members have had is ‘FUNDRAISING.’ Period.
Maybe longer. And being more concerned with "getting along" with the other side rather than fighting for the 'Republican' principles. All the while, most (of both parties) have been more concerned about getting re-elected and perpetuating the money and power of their positions - with real governing and work a distant second.
Right on all points. I am fundamentally disgusted with all of them. But most of all I am disgusted with those who would blame the least of us, when it is primarily those in cahoots with the major corps who are responsible. Without the rampant corruption, jobs would still be plentiful, homes affordable and fraud would still be punished.
Every time I am reminded of quotes like that one from the founding fathers I am dazzled by how profoundly wise some of them were.
When I compare the founding documents to the vapid, banal, effluent that congress generates now, I understand that every warning the founders gave was so appropriate as to be almost prophetic.
Their experiment did not fail on it's own merit. Those that came behind them failed to maintain the freedoms they were given.
@Narroway - "...when it is primarily those in cahoots with the major corps who are responsible."
Don't forget Bernie & Hillary's supporters are very rich people with very big corporations. Obama has GE so far up his arse that when he sneezes, his head lights up. Obama and his taxes (except for his buddies like GE) have gone a long way to force businesses to take their jobs overseas where Dracula isn't sucking at their neck every second of every day.
Of course, that is rampant on the Republican side too, which is why I am so astonished as to why people are supporting Trump.
Politicians need to be ONE TERM ONLY and serving that one term does not give them government retirement for the rest of their lives.
One term does not solve the problem. It only hands power to lobbyists and career staffers. You only have 1 term (2 years especially if you're in the House) to get a grasp on procedure, committees, all the nuts and bolts of sausage making. That means staffers and consultants are the only ones who know how the system works. And since staffers go back and forth between lobbying firms and congressional staffing jobs. Well, you see the problem.
Better solution. Constitutional Amendment: Corporations and unions are banned from political donations. Period. They're not a human being. Citizens can donate up to the national median household income, per year, total. That means George Soros, the Kochs, Gates and Adleston can't bet millions on both horses and still come out ahead regardless of the outcome. Politicians truly depend on your votes and your dollars to get elected.
That bears repeating...

I agree. :D

“A question arises whether all the powers of government, legislative, executive, and judicial, shall be left in this body? I think a people cannot be long free, nor ever happy, whose government is in one Assembly.” – John Adams

“The powers properly belonging to one of the departments ought not to be directly and completely administered by either of the other departments. It is equally evident, that none of them ought to possess, directly or indirectly, an overruling influence over the others, in the administration of their respective powers. It will not be denied, that power is of an encroaching nature, and that it ought to be effectually restrained from passing the limits assigned to it.” – James Madison
“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” – James Madison
Which would tie in nicely with Washington's warning against political parties.
Madison did the best he could to balance the powers between the 3 branches with certain checks.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams

“[N]othing in the Constitution has given [the judiciary] a right to decide for the Executive, more than to the executive to decide for them. Both magistracies are equally independent in the sphere of action assigned to them… the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional, and what are not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action, but for the Legislature & Executive also, in their spheres, would make the judiciary a despotic branch.”

“[A] limited Constitution … can be preserved in practice no other way than through the medium of courts of justice, whose duty it must be to declare all acts contrary to the manifest tenor of the Constitution void. Without this, all the reservations of particular rights or privileges would amount to nothing … To deny this would be to affirm … that men acting by virtue of powers may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.” – Alexander Hamilton

Loesch, who has endorsed Cruz for president, continued to unload on Trump, calling him a “chaos candidate” who has been “all over the board on every single issue.”
Dana, I like you a lot. Please do not regurgitate Jeb Bush talk. There is a reason Jeb is low in the ratings. Most people will be attracted to policies that enhance their freedom and liberty. All you need to do is help them understand HOW. If it’s Cruz…so be it. If it’s Trump….so be it. If it’s Carson……so be it. If it’s Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders……..so be it.
I don’t really care about Twitter talk from Presidential candidates, but if any candidate cannot clearly articulate HOW their positions help maintain the freedom and liberty of ALL American citizens they should NEVER be the candidate of choice. No matter who it is. This is the information Americans truly need to make a wise decision. However, this is the information that seems to be the hardest to get from the candidates. I’m not sure they even know. If they don’t…..they are very, very dangerous to the people of this country.
BDS, I will give you a thumbs up with one correction on what people will vote for(dimoKRats) 47+% will vote for whoever promises them the most FREE stuff...
AMMO UP AND WATCH YOUR 6.
One problem here is that there is much less discussion of actual issues, BECAUSE Trump sucks up all the oxygen from the race with his nonsense that gets covered breathlessly by the media.
 February 4, 2016 at 1:01pm
Why do the cops keep saying it was “unfortunate.” The citizens are fortunate there is one less nut job running around hurting people. The criminal was fortunate he was not paralyzed for the rest of his life. The taxpayers are fortunate they don’t have to pay to support him for the rest of his life. It was a fortunate situation for everyone involved except maybe his family. Depending on how you look at it, they may be fortunate their name is not disgraced any longer by his behavior.
Because it’s a PC world? But also because all lives have to matter or none do. Even your enemies. Taking a life should never be easy. It’s unfortunate for most everyone else involved, burdens the officers & their families, the suspect’s family lost a loved one, might have truly lost hem years before but still hurts.
It’s not,however, something so unfortunate that it should be dwelled upon. Do the investigation, grieve and move on. That's the kicker nobody seems to understand.

Why do the American people behave so apathetically in the face of all these abominable crimes, crimes so unworthy of the human race? … The American people slumber on in their dull, stupid sleep and encourage these criminals….[The American] must evidence not only sympathy; no, much more: a sense of complicity in guilt….For through his apathetic behavior he gives these evil people the opportunity to act as they do…. he himself is to blame for the fact that it came about at all! Each man wants to be exonerated ….But he cannot be exonerated; he is guilty, guilty, guilty!… Now that we have recognized Planned Parenthood for what they are, it must be the sole and first duty, the holiest duty of every American to expose these criminal beasts. (Adapted from the 2nd Leaflet of the White Rose)
If you talk to some of these people, they are clueless. They are not getting the information from the press.
 February 4, 2016 at 12:01pm
Isn’t it true that every honest American is ashamed of his government these days? Who among us has any conception of the dimensions of shame that will befall us and our children when one day the veil has fallen from our eyes and the most horrible of crimes—crimes that infinitely outdistance every human measure—reach the light of day? — Adapted from the 1st leaflet of the White Rose
Yes, BlackD, because we have abandoned our right as We, the People are the Government and let our employees run the ship. We had and have the responsibility to right the sinking ship or suffer the consequences of death, enslavement or camps if we don't stand up and take back our government. We have the right to overthrow a rogue government per our Constitution! and the time is now.

Democrats use the philosophy “see no evil, hear no evil, and speak a lot of evil.”
They don’t want to hear the truth. It would sting too bad so they just ignore it.
Don’t you love socialists. While receiving 1/4 MILLION DOLLARS for speaking, she uses class warfare to rail against the rich. And the dopes listening just clap and cheer her all the way to the bank. YEEEEE HAAAAAH !!!
The Democrat name IS a National Disgrace.

Don’t you just love it when the President wants to bring the enemies of the United States into our house UNCHECKED by the truckload. At some point you have to start to wonder if the promotion of open borders and the promotion of refugees into our country is being done by a person with similar aspirations. It’s almost like we have elected an enemy of the United States into the highest office of the land. Maybe he actually shares the sentiment. It’s not like any of his actions actually back up that idea or anything. I mean unsecured borders, placing unchecked refugees strategically throughout the United States, destructive spending, Unconstitutional executive actions, etc. Who could ever think such a thing about our beloved Mr. Barack Hussein Obama. Ridiculous assertion, huh????
Obama wants to disarm the citizens. However this does not apply to his Muslim brothers. They will be able to keep their weapons. Then they will be able to carryout their jihad. Heads will roll!...Literally! Pray for devine intervention and never, ever give up your firearms. Keeping them is a civil right.

Glen Beck is an honorable man. He has done a tremendous amount for this country. My hat’s off to the guy. There are not many who will stand under intense pressure and hold true to their principles and values. Most would have cowered long ago. He’s got my respect. I don’t always agree, but he is a man of honor and that is a rare thing in our society.
 February 3, 2016 at 4:45pm
That was a sight to behold. Sad really. No talk about freedom. No talk about liberty. No energy.
It’s a great day when the establishment can no longer dictate to the American people who the choice will be. It’s almost like the MSM has lost its control over the people. I think this is a great sign for freedom and a great sign for America that they cannot cram a candidate down the throat of the American people anymore. Bye Bye Jeb.
The GOPE is still trying with Rubio and they're hedging that bet with Trump.
 February 3, 2016 at 4:35pm
Low character people are attracted to low character candidates. Howard Dean supporting Hillary Clinton is a prime example. The Democratic constituency supporting Hillary Clinton is another.
Let me hear another YEEEEE HAAAAAH for all the dirtbags in Washington who are getting richer giving ONE QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLAR class warfare speeches as she speaks to her supporters condemning the RICH. Clap….Clap…………………Clap……………………………….
Let’s give one last YEEEEE HAAAAAH for Hillary Clinton who knowingly did nothing to help our men and women yelling for help as they were being attacked in Lybia and then had the dishonor of promoting a lie to try and cover it up. …………………………………………………………………..

It is noteworthy that the Constitution NEVER mentions “separation of church and state” ANYWHERE……EVER. There is no such thing as the “establishment clause” in the Constitution. These are statements and phrases made up by individuals who purposely pervert and manipulate the Constitution to read as they wish.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Now if the Post Office has rules concerning banners this is different. However, placing the banner at the Post Office is NOT a violation of the 1st Amendment under any conditions. This could ONLY occur IF CONGRESS made a law that violates any of the things listed in the 1st Amendment. And Congress did not.
The people have got to stop BOWING to threats from these people. Stand up for what you know to be true and what you can read for yourself. Deferring to bullies never works out well for the people.
There is no lawsuit big enough to cower to these people. Know what the U.S. Constitution says. We are not ruled by precedent. We are not ruled by unelected officials in black robes telling us what it says. We are ruled by WHAT IT ACTUALLY SAYS!
its implied by stating the govt cannot be religious in any respect so no banners about any god on public buildings-its cool-pretty sure a god doesn't care about that anyway!
I think it was a guy named Leo Pfeffermann that sued and it went to the SCOTUS in about 1946-7. Those bozos found in favor of the joker. Ever since we've had a whole plethora of lousy decisions revolving around that one 5/4 decision.
You are 100% correct. It’s not that they're bowing to these Godless fools. It’s almost always a monetary decision to cave. The cost of litigation is relentless and the Soros funded atheist groups have virtually unlimited funds. The way to shut these fools up is to sue them into the poor house. It doesn’t matter whether these suits are won or lost. (Although God will ultimately be the winning side) It’s the cost of our side’s counter suits. If it starts costing these morons money this nonsense will stop.
The U.S. Postal Service is part of the executive branch of the United States government, whose laws come from Congress. U.S. Post Offices cannot post signs promoting gods and they also can't post signs stating no gods exist. That is 100% equal and neutral and Constitutuonal.
The 14th Amendment prohibits local governments from violating citizens' First Amendment rights, including the right to a religiously neutral government. Therefore, public schools and city councils also must remain religiously neutral. Try a basic U.S. Government course.

If leaning means 180 degrees from Democratic and Progressive ideas then yes, Texas is definitely leaning Republican.
The poll should not be asking which states are Republican or Democrat. The poll should be asking which States are pro liberty and freedom and which states are pro tyranny. Which states promote placing as much power and control in the hands of the people vs. which states promote placing as much power in the hands of the President and or Congress to override the will of the people?
I’m not so sure the results would be much different. We’ve got to get OFF Republican and Democrat battles and get on with the battle for FREEDOM and LIBERTY. It’s a winning argument. Battling between Republicans and Democrats does nothing but create individuals who are resistant to each other and can’t explain why or how their point of view creates more freedom and liberty for EVERY American.
 February 3, 2016 at 11:59am
It’s always good for your credibility to quote a killer and murderer to try and promote your ideas. Great choice. I always go to men who show an overall disdain for the life of others and look to their quotes for truth. What a great choice. :)

“You may be shocked, but you may find some women, minorities and LGBT’s who are glad rights can be changed….just a thought.”
There is a huge difference between rights and laws. People don’t ever want their rights to be changed. If they do, they are the biggest fools alive. Laws can be changed because they can be unjust. Martin Luther King Jr. knew all about this. It’s just that he was smart enough to use moral law and natural law to argue his “unalienable rights” were being violated by man made laws. This is why God is important in a free society. There has to be a trump card against unjust and fallible man made law. If you don’t have a higher law to trump injustice you will loose your freedom.
