...And The Transformational Energy That That Gesture Can Bring About
I am sure that Ted Cruz - being an honorable and decent man - will, upon reflecting more deeply upon his position as a staunch constitutionals-law scholar, and thus believing in the basic policy of 'original intent' - as he has specifically said he does - realize the error of his ways, and declare himself ineligible for the presidential office and stand down from his candidacy thereto; and thus put the onus on the Usurper in the Oval Office to do the same.
And that way, we get back to constitutional law in the country. Not the rule of men. A/k/a arbitrary law. Which is tantamount to tyranny.
Help him make that decision. As I have just done (and countless times before), in a comment to an article that brought up the subject. Again. And again. And again.........until we reach

(“President Obama’s silence on a wave of recent killings of police officers is being ripped by law enforcement, with one Maryland sheriff taking to Facebook to mock that he will “save you a spot next to me!” at this week’s funerals for two deputies…”)
For skunk Hussein Obama votes are more important than law and decency. Ted Cruz is needed for a time such as America now finds herself after eight years of a a rogue president.

Excuse me, Seedman, but 8 years "of a rogue president" is really enough, and more than enough. I get your feelings; but Cruz would be a "rogue" president as well, and for the same basic reason that Obama is, and for which he should never have been allowed to occupy that office: Neither of them is a "natural born" citizen, as the Constitution requires for that particular office. The definition of the term is clear from the historical record of the time of the constitutional Framers. it refers at its minimum to a person born of citizen parents. (That's what makes it 'natural'.) Cruz's father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth. And we all know that the Usurper's father was not a U.S. citizen either.
Why the Republican Party, as the opposition party of record, failed and has failed to act on that knowledge, must be clear by now: They wanted to do an end-round on the Constitution on the issue too - thus trashing the rule of law in the country - and put up their own "rogue" presidential candidates. But two wrongs do not make a right. It's time - and past - that that original wrong be dealt with. Which means that the Usurper must be removed from the office. Not that more wrongs be committed in its wake. Or the federal constitutional Republic of the U.S.A. is dead; and we are deep into tyranny.
No thank you all the same.

What we need is a scrubbing of Obama.

As well as a scubbing of all those in Congress that have allowed this scumb to keep operating.

Virginia Lankford Agreed Virgina. But in their defence, it's difficult to do anything without a veto proof congress. Hopefully next year will be different.

You are so right Jack. This is why I am pulling for Trump that isn't in this political mess.

Bob Eldridge with the recent issue in the Supreme Court I will be going for Cruz since he has experience with the Supreme Court and hopefully will be able to pick a conservative judge when we win the presidency

Jack Roth How is it that you don't understand that for all of Cruz's posturing as a 'conservative,' he is not following the 'original intent' of the Constitution in running for the office of the POTUS? He is not a 'natural born citizen' for the same reason that Obama is a Usurper in the office: He was not born of citizen parents. His father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth. He is, therefore, according to the rule of law, ineligible for that office. And if he would admit that, we could get rid of the Usurper simply by removal; no impeachment process necessary, for someone illegally in the office. That's the best thing that Cruz could ever do for this country.
