I like Ted Cruz - he is a very appealing candidate. However, he cannot serve as President as long as we live under the Constitution he so ably defends. If he is truly worthy of the support he has garnered he will publicly so state and step out of the race. He would be a terrific Attorney General, or could serve in any number of other vitally important positions. He could undo much of the damage Eric Holder has done. But he cannot defend the Constitution and then allow himself to be considered for the role of President. I wish it were otherwise - he is a truly great leader and his principles in all other regards are excellent. He is risking becoming useless as a leader if he allows himself to be touted for a job he is not eligible for. It will be seen as self-serving and an abandonment of those principles. I hope for his sake and for the good he could to the nation in other positions that he will not permit his name to be put forward. Any who do this are squandering his enormous talent and leadership skills in a doomed effort. The moment he was on the ticket the Democrats would be sneering that Republicans and Conservatives are complete hypocrites . . . and for once, they would be RIGHT. Don't go there, Senator Cruz!!!

Regarding Sarah Palin, let us not forget that she abandoned her principles in order to repay what she apparently though was a PERSONAL debt to John McCain . . . and he has been creating mischief in the Senate ever since he was re-elected. We had a shot at a Conservative, J.D. Hayworth, and she used her considerable influence to hurt him to benefit one of the worst senators in our history, McCain. Whenever I hear the name "Palin", I think, "McCain". Her efforts to harm Michelle Bachmann (due no doubt to Bachmann's unfortunate choice of Ed Rollins for her campaign and his horrible misstep in insulting Palin) reveal a selfish, egotist rather than a patriot. I would never trust Sarah Palin again.

Cruz, Rubio, Jindal

Sorry but these gentlemen are NOT eligible to the president (any more than ovomit is) in that they are NOT Natural born Citizens as required by our Constitution meaning that both parents must be US citizens at the time of the child's birth which must be on US soil.

2016 Candidate

Unfortunately I think Obama has caused a huge distrust of anyone other than caucasions for the Office of POTUS. I would 100% back Col West! Anyone with a modicum of intelligence would also. Until we return to the Old non compromised (Electronic) Voting process, it would be an excercize in futility. They were proven to be easily hacked and programmed to alter Votes! Restore Our Constitution to the Law of the Land status and review and void subversive Esecutive Orders and Directives! Defund ObamaCare and it Stops!
