As a black man in America if relatively young age I gotta say this kinda offends me. On a minor level is the issue of the naming but on a major level is the amount of division that comes from both sides of something so minor period.
Some of my best friends of been white, I have meet thier families, enjoyed meals and vacations with them and vice versa. Some many kids these days are more or less post racial, or as close as we have ever been to being past race. There are still some bigots on both sides but the vast majority are inclusive and open to other races.
I can understand from the white prospective it may seems your country is being taken away given the absolute dominance the white meal has enjoyed in the past few centuries. But change isn’t a terrible thing to embrace

K. Well its not just blacks that find enjoyment from maiming things after slave supporterst you arse. And BTW using stereotypes of blacks being lazy is kinda funny since black slavery was used as an economic engine for much of this country in its formative years. But now since they are not being beaten, raped, and enslaved they are lazy.

How is that a response to anything I said?

Honestly CNN has provided more balance coverage than any other source. Better than watch Sean Hannity stroke Trump’s……ego and that of his children.

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are leaders in congress, and you have a democratic president. Just how do you get things down without working with these people?

This man ( Cruz) colluded with House members to force a Government shutdown. I’m not gonna play this game. He was leading the charge and it failed. And honesty, I dont think he cares that it failed on policy because it helped him personally.

I remember that, he would put down those who disagreed with him on the sly. He pulls the same crap now and pretend like his is the only conservative in the world. So much so that he digs up Reagan every chance he get and gives him full credit for something Reagan even didn’t do because he wasn’t President while it was going on. ( The Hostage negotiations with Iran)
Which FYI, they didn’t release them because they feared Reagan on the inauguration day. They did it because they hated Carter so much that it was kinda off a last kick in the stomach from Iran to America for supporting the Shah. You know the American backed dictator who started up their nuclear program that conservatives seem to piss and moan about so much now. Yea, that program started up back when Iran was under the American thumb. Funny how many facts politicians fail to mention to the people.

OK, first off Ted Cruz was not only The Speaker’s former Lawyer but he led the 2013 Government shutdown that made Republicans look like Buffoons. So I guess Lyin Ted is back at it.
Second, I questions why People think that a person as hated as Ted Cruz could every bring this nation together. I mean conservatives blame Obama for all the division as if they don’t have any hand in it, as if they don’t control congress. Its all one man’s fault. Him simply breathing causing division.
And here you have a guy like Cruz, who I personally think had his eyes on the presidency ever since that shutdown, seeing his aspirations being taken away by a guy that’s honestly worse than he is ( Trump). Liberals don’t like him. He doesn’t fair well with independents in many respects, and part of his own party even hates him. So how in the hell does Ted “creepy car salesman” Cruz bring us together any better than Trump or Hillary would?
Quit drinking the Kool Aid. Cruz is what this nation needs not a bunch of rich lying back stabbers.
Sheeple (a portmanteau of "sheep" and "people") is a derogatory term that highlights the passive herd behavior of people easily controlled by a governing power which likens them to sheep, a herd animal that is easily led about.
