    So far, Mr. Cruz is a proponent of will and will power, those extremes of “positive” thinking that laud bootstraps, and flog the underclasses who aren’t lifting strongly or successfully enough. Perhaps his next stage of political development will acknowledge that democracy is neither all thesis nor all antithesis. Democracy is synthesis arrived at through informed debate, a fair vote, and the acceptance of majority decisions. Will Mr. Cruz eventually come round to Lincoln and Jefferson’s point of view, even Mr. McCain’s? I’d like to think so. America needs no new Triumph of the Will.

    disgustedtaxpayer said, about 3 years ago 9/26/13 has 2 articles showing that Senator Cruz gave 49 reasons that citizens tweeting him gave as legitimate cause to STOP OBAMACARE. The list prints 3 pages.
    2nd article "Top 5 Moments from Ted Cruz’s 20 hour Senate Speech…..
    1.Reads from Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham”
    2.Impersonates Darth Vader.
    3.Quotes “Duck Dynasty”.
    4.Says he’ll speak until he can’t stand any longer..
    5.Gives a geometry lesson.
    Each of these Seuss, Darth Vader, Duck Dynasty and geometry lesson, were logical and appropriate in the mountain of good reasons that Obamacare is an abomination for the USA, for the elderly, the middle class, the young and every citizen who appreciates our Bill of Rights and our Constitution and our Liberty and Freedoms.

    Right there with wmconelly now.
    “logical and appropriate”
    Seuss wrote kids stuff, but in real life he raged against evil minorities. This does fit the subject, but the rest of the folks quoted and geometry has nothing for the American people.
    I am guessing your over the top gushing praise for his subject matter is a joke.
    I mean, really, your are talented enough to use a keyboard, that is enough intelligence to ensure your post was in jest.

    No kidding, there has not been a major “ENTITLEMENT” ever over turned, and only one minor one in the nineties. To pay for it we have record breaking taxes from all sides, state and local taxes 114 billion in income tax, sales tax 82 billion, fuel tax 11 billion, motor vehicle 8 billion and property tax 92 billion. Federal taxes are at the highest level ever despite what President Obama says don’t believe me check this out please:

    I thought that Green Eggs and Ham was about trying something that you thought you would not like and end up liking it.

    Hard to believe so many still refuse to see the issues surrounding Obamacare. Blinder sales must be through the roof.

    @various critics=
    Words mean something to me.
    Senator Cruz’ words mean something, but liberals and lefties and Democrat politicians ignore, evade and totally miss the meanings of “NO” on that Entry Into Socialism, Obamacare.
    Cruz is in the majority of Americans’ opinions on this.
    Cruz and the conservative GOP have given the solution=
    keep reforms IN the private sector and the FEDS OUT.
    Yes, reform access and plans of private insurance to everyone in all 50 states.
    Yes, eliminate as much Government red tape as possible, which will help lower costs and prices for the private sector healthcare.
    Yes, Keep our Personal Health information PRIVATE and out of the nosy prying hands of bureaucrats in the IRS and elsewhere in the state and federal government.
    ACA is the LAW, by one-sided bulldozing by the Democrats.
    But at one time Slavery was the law and upheld by a majority
    of Americans. Slavery is no longer the LAW, but I hope and pray that the US Healthcare System can be rescued from this ENSLAVING law and set free—-WITHOUT A WAR.
    Freedom is worth defending, in Congress, by officials doing what the people elected them to do, as Cruz and other conservatives are doing!
    I want my descendants to have a protected private healthcare system with no one making decisions except the citizen, the doctor and God, when patients pray for God’s help. All others stay out of our medical treatments, and our records which should be as sacred as a Priest’s confession box. (an example, I am Bible Christian, not Roman Catholic).

    dt: are you familiar with the word “gibberish”, THAT is what flowed from Cruz’s lips. You also haven’t a clue what the word “socialism” means. (of course neither does “roadkill”, but he can’t hardly write a sentence without using it!)
