MY CHOICE FOR THE 2016 REPUBLICAN NOMINEE FOR PRESIDENT THIS WEEK IS:
Choices

Login to vote in this poll.

Donald Trump.

The main problem with Washington DC is that all of out Lawyer Politicians are on the take. That is the reason why Washington DC unleashed the hounds from Hell on Donald Trump because Trump will put a stop to all of their criminal activity and he plans to shrink Government and grow our Military. Trump can't be bought and that scares the hell out of the criminals in Washington DC. He really wants to save our Nation to make us great again like it was when Ronald Reagan was President. He will bring back major Manufacturing like it was in the past. That is what made American so Great. Americans where prospering with real 40 hour a week or more type of Jobs that all real Americans can work and not the Illegals that hate America.

One person one vote

One person one vote. The rest is bullshit conventions carcasses . One person one vote that's it the person with the biggest number of votes wins . To me it's like giving your money to A person and them they give it to whoever they want without having any say about it . This country is getting no better than foreign countries with dictators . Given the revolution is coming lock and load

WE NEED GOD AGAIN

TED CRUZ IS THE MAN TO INTRODUCE GOD BACK INTO OUR SCHOOLS, OUR GOVERNMENT, AND OUR LIVES... ONLY TED CRUZ IS THE CHRISTIAN IN THIS CAMPAIGN !!! JOHN KASICK HAS GOTTEN $ 770,000.00 DOLLARS FROM GEORGE SOROS, THE MAN RESPONSIBLE THROUGH A CONSPIRACY OF HAVING BARACK OBAMA "INSTALLED" AS PRESIDENT, AND THAT IS THE REASON FOR KASICK HANGING AROUND... WE DON'T NEED "THE DONALD", WHO MAY BE A CRIME BOSS BY HIS ACTIONS, HIS REFUSING TO SHOW HIS TAX FORMS OR ANY OTHER FINANCIAL DOCUMENTS... TED CRUZ IS WHO WE NEED FOR OUR LEADER, AND DEFINITELY NOT A DICTATOR SUCH AS TRUMP WANTS TO BE.... LOOK AT THE HATE IN HIS FACE AND LANGUAGE, THE REAL THREATS HE'S MAKING !!! CRIME BOSSW, CHILD MOLESTER, MAYBE, HE SAID IT !!!!

FOR PRESIDENT

IT'S TIME TO GET GOD BACK IN OUR SCHOOLS, OUR GOVERNMENT AND OUR LIVES, CRUZ IS THE MAN FOR THE JOB !!!!!!!!

Cruz

A man of God needed in the White House to turn our nation back to biblical foundations

Cruze has no substance

Cruze stood for very little, debate after debate he watched Trump, then he started talking aboit the same things he saw Trump get traction with. Don't tell me Im the only one in America who watched it happen....First, he was for amnesty, now he is not. Then he was for syrian refugees coming to the United States, now he is not, he was not talking about building a wall, now he is. He is a phony, pretending he is something he is not just to get your vote. They say he is an outsider, he is purely and simply an estahlishment politician. I do not trust him for a minute. Trump may curse, he may be a bit offensive at times, yet he will stand and fight for Americans, all of us, old, young, male female, black, white, he will turn this country around. Cruze will be right in the pocket of special interest and lobbyists, where do you think his funding comes from, a money tree? Trump is spending his own money, and will owe nothing to anyone except those whom elected him. Thats exactly how it should be.
Then there is Kasich, hanging out, losing everything, not even coming close, but he keeps smiling and showing up because the RNC has guaranteed him a contested convention which will hand him the nomination on a silver platter.
I dont know about you folks, but I take exception with the RNC telling me that essentially I am an idiot who doesnt deserve to vote for the candidate whom has won the popular vote, and the most delegates.
Who in hell do they think they are? They cant get anything done and they continuously allow to democrates to ride roughshod over them, now they think they can pick whom they want us to vote for? I would rather stay home, but to do so would mean 4 more years of Obama, which is what Hillary will give us. Enough is enough, we need to stand up for American values and our constitution. Trump is my choice, Cruze is just another politician who will give us four more years of ramming the same old crap down our throats.

Ted Cruz is the best Candidate for President

Cruz is the one who will follow the Constitution and Law. I believe he will eliminate unnecessary spending. He'll work on deleting our country's terrible debt, and is for no amnesty. He'll fight the war to win! He'll eliminate Obamacare. He is presidential and don't use "s" and "f" words. He's a Christian and a great family man. He would represent our great country very well.
I believe Trump is ahead because he tears everyone else that is running down and there support goes down from that point.

NO! to Cruz!!!

Cruz is NOT the best candidate!!!

TRUMP IS!!!!!

Ted Cruz for president

I believe TED is the Best Bet America has, I Served 23 years in the US Army & and another 20 years in civilian life, and have Never seen a BOZO like Trump.

I Want a Presidental Person for that office ! not a Clown

Trump is the best candidate.

I will vote for Donald Trump. He has the best conservative platform and is the best leader for our country.

Vote

Trump

Kasich

Kasich must go. Time to hang it up.

Sharia Law

Donald Trump is 100% right! Islam has no place in the American society and like the letter says If the Muslim community was given the chase to vote for Sharia Law too implemented into America they will vote for it to be implemented and we will have the streets painted in Blood and the blood will be of Christians and Muslims but hopefully more of Muslims. I don't know about you but I for one will not be just sitting and waiting for any Muslim that will want to chop my head off and I really don't think any other Christian American or Jews will just be sitting and doing nothing. We will be armed and ready to take the fight too them. So if the so called powers too be want to have a bloody war they better just take the easy solution and kick them Muslims out of America and keep them out of America. This is and always has been a Christian Nation. Never mind what Obama says! This is not a Muslim Nation and never will be.

Donald for President 2016

Donald is 100% American. He is the only one that can bring our country back to the Super Power it once was. We need someone who can stop the illegals from taking over our country. We don't want or need Sharia Law. Our country is broke because our money is going to fund these illegals who do not appreciate anything they get. If our country is so bad(as they feel)why don't they leave. We are giving into whatever they ask for and what do we get in return? More terrorism. Since they aren't citizens, they have no right to vote. Send them back where they came from. We don't want their version of democracy. If their way is so good, why did they leave their country. We are Americans. We don't want or need the change that these people and Obama want to change us to. We are not a Muslim Nation and never will be.

DAYLIGHT !!!

CAN YOU TRUMP SUPPORTERS SEE ANY DAYLIGHT WHERE YOU'VE GOT YOUR HEADS ???? I CAN TELL BY THE WAY YOU TALK AND RIOT THAT YOU DON'T HAVE A BRAIN !!! I'M ONLY 85 YRS. OLD. A CHRISTIAN, ONE OF FIVE LEFT FROM OUR TREK DURING THE KOREAN ACTION... WHERE WERE MOST OF YOU HANGING OUT ???? BILLY MILLS 'STRAIGHT" FROM TEXAS GET RIGHT WITH GOD OR GET LEFT, YOUR CHOICE, HEAVEN OR HELL !!1

sharia law

The really strange issue with this whole discussion about the clash of cultures between the west and the muslim religion is that if the muslims did ever take over the United States of America the first people to be affected are the very people who support them.

Those would be the liberal progressives who refuse to accept that there is a difference between us. Pretty sure the likes of fancy nancy pelosi and hillary clinton would be the first to have their choice of converting and putting on the burka or having their head lopped off.

THE ATHEISTS WOULD BE ON TOP OF THE LIST!

Trump vs Cruz

How many times have we heard that Hey! Trump was right! Remember Trump told Cruz to get his citizenship problem resolved. You can only be a natural born citizen of one country, and Cruz is a natural born citizen of Canada, Period! there is no way he can be a natural born citizen of the USA.
So if Trump does not win he will file the suit against Cruz, because he has cause and can show injury. You can mark my word that anyone that has had his records sealed in his citizenship files has something to hide. Cruz got away with being a dual citizen while in the office of Senator by claiming he did know he was a dual citizen.
Are you so dumb as to believe that a constitutional Lawyer, never knew he was a dual citizen.

Are you going to let history repeat its self ?

Cruz - natural born citizen

You claim that Cruz had his records sealed, just where did you get that from. If they were sealed how did trump know that Cruz was born in Canada. I have never heard trump or anyone else claim that Cruz is not a citizen only that he is not a natural born citizen.

The Constitution of the United States of America does not give a definition of the meaning of NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, Ted Cruz's mother was an American citizen working in Canada when he was born, can't get any more natural born than that.

The Cruz family moved back to the United States of America when Cruz was four years old. I'll bet that every morning of his life his mother and father got out of bed and said; hey Ted remember you were born in Canada and have dual citizenship. Hope you understand sarcasm when you read.

I guess you agree with the notion that children born in America to illegal alien invaders are American citizens and that the hundreds of children born to Chinese mothers who were sent here by the Chinese Government to have their babies in order secure American citizens is the way we should give out American citizenship. In 18 years these Chinese/Americans can begin having children and each of them will be considered American citizens not natural born in your opinion but American citizens just the same.

In my opinion a child should be the same nationality as the mother regardless of where they are born. We would solve a whole lot of problems that way.

Cruz (edited for length)

No one is questioning if Cruz is a Citizen. The point of contention is if he is a Natural Born Citizen. And that is our problem when all of us discuss the matter. There is more than one type of Citizen. Why else would the authors of the US Constitution make a distinction of Natural Born for President and NOT all the other elected positions? (edited for length)

We have Senators and Representatives in other positions that are Citizens, but not Natural Born Citizens. Former Governor Arnold Shwartzenegger was born in Austria of foreign parents. Senator Marco Rubio was born here, but neither of his parents were US Citizens when he was born. They were naturalized a few years after Marco's birth. Obama was born in Hawaii of an American mother, but his father was a Citizen of some other country, which is currently known as Kenya which may make him a subject under the British Crown. I'll stop right there because it's an allegiance argument NOT where one was born.

The definition of Natural Born Citizen is NOT about WHERE one is born, but where their ALLEGIANCE may lie.

From the Bible

It is my understanding that in biblical times Jewish Law always provided that citizenship and nationality always passed through the maternal line. Tribal warfare left many women at home conquering armies always took women as prizes so the rules were made to simplify the process of categorizing the population . If you mother was Philistine you were Philistine . Your mother an Israelite you were an Israelite. The nationality of the father be he legitimate or otherwise had no bearing on the nationality or citizenship of the children. This information was passed on to me by friends and co workers in the Bronx. I believe their source was The Talmud , in publication for a millennia or two or three.

Read and study the Constitution.....

voting in your poll

There is NO WAY I would ever vote for Ted Cruz.

Vote for Cruz

Andrea, does that mean that you would prefer Hillary, or Bernie?
To not vote for the Republican nominee is to vote for the Democrat.
If you can't do anything else, then choose the lesser of two evils.

Normally, I would vote for

Normally, I would vote for Cruz, but, quite honestly, I don't see how he can beat the Democrat candidate. Trump sounds good, but I don't trust him. My opinion is we need another candidate, a true conservative....but where do we pull one out of the hat??

Cruz can win

All the polls I have seen show that Cruz has a much better chance to beat Hillary than Trump.
Why do you think otherwise?

Cruz is the only one!

Trump may be right on the immigration issue, but he does not have a clue about the Constitution. The only one who will bring us back to a Constitutionally- limited government is Cruz. The reason we have the problems we do is we are so far away from Constitutional rule and Trump does not have a clue about it. He never ever speaks about the Constitution. It is about the Constitution! Once Cruz becomes President and rights all of the unconstitutional issues, policies, etc. that have been put in place, then we can restore our great Country once again.

Keep the Trump-et playing loud

Nominee

The Republican leaders are so far off on what the true voters want and in their move to keep Trump from being the nominee, they are going to give the election to the Democrats and destroy the United States.

True voters

I do not support trump as I would not want 4 years of hearing him call everyone liars and threatening law suits against anyone who disagreed with him, because that is what we would get.

Now speaking of true voters, I hope you are aware that the majority of voters in the Republican primaries have vote against trump, not to mention that in the many States they allow cross over voters where not only republicans but also democrats and independents can vote in their state's primaries so in your opinion who are the true voters? the minority republicans and the non republicans who voted for trump or the majority republicans who voted against him?

I agree if trump gets the 1237 votes then he deserves to be the nominee but if he does not get it on the first ballot then on the second ballot the delegates can and will begin to change their votes this is the system.

I would agree that if the aristocratic elite politicians (republicans) do attempt to inject someone who has not run in the primaries they will only be killing their own party.

Once again Ted Cruz

pulled a 'zinger' in Wisconsin, this time it was NOT about staff falsely telling voters a candidate (Carson) had pulled out of the Iowa caucus race but that he spent his precious campaigning time - when he should have been telling people about what HIS plans were for a better America - mentioning the National Enquirer article came from the Trump campaign. This has been proven false by every media source...the truth is the investigators were associated with the Rubio campaign and had been trying to sell the story for many months.

Instead of featuring the good things he would do for our country, Cruz PURPOSELY chose to demean another candidate...I guess knowing that if one repeats an untruth often enough, there will be many who will believe it is true. Negative ads may work, but they certainly diminish a candidate in my eyes.

Intentional personal destruction is the main reason my earlier support for Ted Cruz has gone out the door. You can check my earlier posts...I was for a Trump/Cruz 16-year presidency - but these underhanded tricks coming from someone I believed was above such caused me to drop those thoughts completely.

TRUMP 2016 to Make America Great Again!

Really?

Sir, if personal destruction is not your thing, then you sure need to rethink your support of Mr. Trump....who has made an art form out of personal attacks. Are you blind??? Did you just tune into the campaigning?? I cannot help you other than to cancel out your vote for the candidate who has played gutter politics since he first entered the race...and before. That is Donald Trump. Good grief.

Best man for the Job!

I believe Trump is the only candidate that can fix everything in our country that is so messed up! Cruz can't even get along with fellow republican senators, or Congress ... how is he supposed to get them to cooperate with him?
Trump had the Business Smarts, to run the country like a business, and trim down the fat, and resolve national debt! I also feel he will surround himself with the smartest people, and call on their advice to deal with several issues, he might not be as well in tune with! But, he sure called our immigration problem correctly!

I agree 100%

There is GREAT need in America at this time for a successful businessman to step into the Oval Office. I am quite certain he will choose other successful people to advise him and lead agencies that are in dire need of strong leadership...NO MORE political cronyism. The people who have been feeding at the public trough all these years are scared to death he will win and their scamming the taxpayer days will come to a halt.

Trump WILL Make America Great Again!

Best Presidential Contender

I am a proud supporter of Senator Ted Cruz for President of the US for the following reasons:

1. He is a believer in the Constitution of the US as the law of the land.
2. He is a strong, moral Christian who believes in God the Father, Jesus the only Son of the Father, and the Holy Spirit.
3, His flat tax plan has been analyzed as being the most sound and fiscally responsible plan by economists and tax experts. His plan grows the economy more than anyone else.
4. He knows that many of the laws passed recently are blatantly illegal.
5. He would repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act and replace it with elements of the Republican plan which has conservative backing.
6. He is an excellent debater and presents his case in clear, down-to-earth terms. While not quite the communicator Ronald Reagan was, once elected I believe he could use the media to convince the people of this limited republic to support his ideas while telling Americans how great they are.
7. He has an excellent national security/defense team in place with such stalwarts as Elliot Abramson, LTG Boykin (US Army Ret'd) and Frank Gaffney, a big proponent of Strategic Defense Initiatives and a voice calling for protection against High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulses which could destroy our electrical grid system and throw all Americans back into the early 1800's lifestyle.

Senator Cruz does not oppose all Republican leaders, he only wants to shepherd them back to their first love which should be reduced size and scope of Government, a return to morality for America, a return to commonsense rather than a strict adherence to the left's political correctness.

100% Agreement

I agree with you completely. Cruz 2016, the only man that can right all the wrongs that have been done against our Country.

Best Presidential Contender

I am also a proud supporter of Senator Ted Cruz and could not have said it any better than you. THANKS

Shields Up - Defeat the Sainted Klingon

The first order of business has to be to push Kasich out of the race in order to maximize the chances of one Trump or Cruz getting a majority on an early ballot.
Next is getting those two to agree that preserving rule 40 is in both their interests.
Finally, the best floor strategy wins - which ought to be Cruz, but we have to abide by the result.
