    Man, you sure are long winded.

    Nope, wrong again. But then you are wrong on so many subjects.

    Now the narrow view is that Cruz was elected by a “minority” vote. Just doesn’t happen. So regardless of which part of the many issues was used by the electorate, Cruz was placed into office to do what he has done by his constituents.

    Also, you may note that I added that caveat concerning the validity of current religions claims to being “follows of the christ” or Christian.

    As to " The problem come(ing) with him seeking to shove his personal idea of faith down the throats of all the rest of us." I had to laugh at that one. Really? Are you so weak minded that someone expressing his personal view point and letting you see his personal belief on God means he is trying to “shove” it down your throat.?

    This is America. And further, no one can force you to think anything you do not wish to think. YOUR fear may cause you to act in a specific manner (evidence your comments) but you do that to yourself.

    See ya. All you need is love. (my idea of faith shared by millions)

    OK wise guys, here is some perspective. First read this one page and think about what it says.

    http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/federal_budget

    So in 2014 the US spend 483 billion bucks more than they took in and added that to the ever growing debt. Spending is proposed to increase by 200 billion a year over the next 5 years. Revenue? Not so much. How can you tell? Because the deficit grows by an average of 500 billion a year. Got it? They PLAN to spend more than collected every year. bad bad bad bad…

    So, defense is less than a quarter of the pie, while pensions and healthcare make up over half the pie which leaves a quarter pie for all the rest ……gee.

    here are some other viewpoints.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2015/03/17/economic-potential-health-care-column/24820421/

    Last, the 5.1 trillion reduction is over a 10 year period. So do the math.

    Proposed spending is an average of 500 billion a year OVER what is collected. Over a ten year period that would be 5 trillion dollars.

    The proposed reduction is 5 trillion dollars over ten years. That would be an average of 500 billion a year the EXACT amount that is being spent in excess of what is collected.

    Why is it so hard to imagine a government that does not spend more than it takes in?

    I’m gonna take a shot here trout.

    The project’s cost and scope have long been a source of controversy. The California High-Speed Rail Authority has estimated the project’s year-of-expenditure cost at $68.4 billion (2011 estimate).4 In July 2014 The World Bank reported that the per kilometer cost of California’s high-speed rail system was $56 million, more than double the average cost of $17–21 million per km of high speed rail in China and more than the $25–39 million per km average for similar projects in Europe. – Wiki

    Bunch of Lisa cartoon point out the taxpayer expense involved among other things.

    That’s just one on your list. Your opinion concerning ms benson’s soundness of mind is duly noted. However, just like you she is entitled to have, hold and express her opinion. At least she is trying to influence her fellow citizens in an approved way and frankly has a much larger audience than you.

    Such a long response. I found my attention wandering. It’s a tweety bird world my brother.

    My point in any and all of those examples – and remember it is a short portion of a long list – is that the perpetrator LIED and that we the people need TRUTH from out elected officials. That may simplify things for you. Obama is a prove liar and will lie when the truth will suffice.

    Now the last comment – perhaps designed to belittle my intentions but perhaps not – is exactly what I was saying.

    Shouldn’t the President have better sources than the media? Yet it seems he finds out about these things the same way we do in the news……….

    Obama political chess moves…..

    Bergdahl, The soldier whose service Susan Rice, U.S. national security advisor, once characterized as “honorable” and whose release came at the price for five prisoners could now himself end up in an American prison for life. The prison exchange that some political operatives thought would be heralded was instead widely condemned. And the war that was supposed to be ending with no solider left behind has now been extended for five months."

    And the State Department position? Well, even though the detainees (LOL) released have begun communicating with “people they shouldn’t” and Bergdahl is not a “hero that served his country” but rather is being tried as a deserter/traitor to his country, state depatment spokesperson Psaki said that the trade was “absolutely” worth it………what was the objective again?

    So, in your opinion, Ted Cruz’s voting record is a bad thing. It proves one thing to me. You are satisfied with the status quo and want no changes to the way our government spends our money.

    Cruz was elected by the people in his district to curtail the run away spending and bring about a balanced budget among other things. His record reflects that he has done exactly what the people sent him there to do.

    Yes, he is a “Christian” and has a strong faith. He see’s a need for that moral compass in his life. (it’s not a given that today’s christians would be recognized as such by the Christ) You call him an extremist. As the authorities of the day said of his role model and killed him for it. Why? Because of his personal religious thoughts? Not very tolerant of you my brother.

    So just remember that out of the 350+ million citizens in this country, you are in the 24% of those that either have no belief (yeah right) or say they just don’t know and can’t decide.

    Love is all ya need my brother…..

    Dude, yep. That’s why I have said – over and over – we the people need to clean congress out.

    What a load of bull trout.

    Ok IF you can provide proof of that claim, that Bibi has called for the destruction of all Arabs and their rights, I’ll apologize.

    Meanwhile, the FACT that Arabs participate in the governing of Israel with representation in the Knesset.

    Do some soul searching trout…..

    You should do more research on what natural born citizen means.
