I love Ted Cruz and Mike Lee who campaigned as conservatives and actually are legislating as conservatives back in Washington, DC.

I would think that Senator Orrin Hatch would be giving Utah's other Senator large donations from his left over campaign funds. after all, Hatch is such a big conservative and so eager to see conservative agendas passed. At least that is what I heard prior to November 6, 2012, although I must admit Hatch seems to have forgotten most of that once he crossed the beltway back into DC.

Cruz and Lee and Rubio and Paul ect. I sure hope these new Republican Senators are the future of the party, and will replace those old worn out, out of touch, guys like McConnell, McCain, Hatch, and the bunch. Why won't those guys Retire! Give up the power and go find a beach to live on for the rest of your lives. You're all millionaires. You don't need to work. It's time for a big change in the party, and you guys are not going to be part of it. Face it McCain, you're over.

One far right fringe nut (not a true conservative) is coming to raise money for another far right fringe nut (not a true conservative). And neither of them is worth a hill of beans. Business as usual.

Lee, Cruz and Paul are the true conservatives. Guys like McConnell, McCain, Hatch are what is called..Neo-cons. McCain never stops pushing for wars.

If Lee and Cruz are the future of the GOP, that party is doomed, or else America is.

It is guys like these that will prevent republicans from ever winning a national election again.

And people in Utah wonder why the rest of the nation thinks we're nuts. Here's why.

Isn't it ironic that a Senator who unabashedly stands for the Constitution and votes that way is viewed by some to be extreme. And we wonder why the cesspool known as Washington continues to hold power and use taxpayer money to destroy free enterprise, perpetuate poverty and welfare, and build more armaments to make war! It makes me wonder who these people are that love war,communism, socialism, and government answers. How insulting to human dignity and common sense!

Isn't it ironic that a Senator who unabashedly twists and distorts the Constitution and votes that way is viewed by some to be a patriot. And we wonder why the cesspool known as Washington lobbies continues to hold power as they use anonymous corporate and foreign money to destroy our middle class, perpetuate poverty and welfare by refusing to recognize legitimate needs of people, and build more armaments to make war! It makes me wonder who these people are that love profit above all else, who support insanely large and obscene salaries and bonuses for corporate executives, who oppose paying a living wage to workers and regulation of banks that have swindled millions of Americans out of their homes all in the name of greed. How insulting to human dignity and common sense!

Cruz, Rubio, Lee and Paul are going to cause the death of the Republican Party.. except in Utah Texas and a couple of Southern States.......
The GOP is dying and the older Repubs recognize it.. Utahans don't seem to see what is happening across the Nation.

By the way, just for the record, Rafael Edward Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, CANADA on December 22, 1970 to an American mother and a Cuban father..
Is there anything there sounding similar to Barack Hussein Obama born in HAWAII, USA to an American mother and a Ghanian father.
Both are American Citizens, both have foreign fathers and American mothers but only one was born on American soil.
Where are the BIRTHERS now??????

@owlmaster2

You will have to ask the Hillary Clinton campaign since that is where it started.

@Esquire

Sounds like sour leftist grapes. The GOP may or be not be doomed. But Conservatism is very strong.

Speaking of irony,
I'll let you know when non-taxpaying Wallstreet and Banks Gadiantons "trickle" down their 4 fold increases from their Government handouts to us taxpaying loosing everything Middle Class and
those pesky unfunded $3 Trillion 13 year old Bush Wars are finally over.

I will be voting for anyone who is willing to oppose Lee in the next election. By the way why does he need supporters to send donations to stop the ACA. I will not be donating.
