  •  Ted Cruz wins in Texas for a long time (1+ / 0-)

    because he knows how to stoke right-wing hatred of all things government and throws in a lot of Libertarian sentiments to boot. Plus Texans pride themselves on not being told what to do (rugged independence). He knows how to stoke that as well. Ted Cruz is a very dangerous man. Do not underestimate him. Because he is smart and because he is tapping into something that people are going to want after Obama completes his term. After all these government "scandals", he will appeal to more and more people who become anti-big government. The only thing we can count on is that he has gone over to the crazy side a lot, which won't play well nationally. Chris Christie is probably more dangerous to us than Ted Cruz, because he has not gone over to the crazy side. He appears to be a moderate (even though he is not) because he doesn't buy into all the crazy conspiracy theories.
