    Hearing Ted Cruz's announcement sure made me feel good. If Romney doesn't run, I could settle very comfortably with this man. So far, what he's said about our families, our laws, the constitution, and the current leadership are spot-on.

    I wanted to express my opinion exposing Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Mia Love and the rest of the tea party for their ridiculous comments, but I read through the posts and the majority of sane minded people have properly but them in their place. Please Utah, do not elect or re-elect tea partiers to public office and expect anything constructive to get accomplished in government for either your state or the country.

    "Ted Cruz sponsored legislation to REMOVE THE LIBERTY of women, taking away their right to choose to carry a baby or not. Some "liberty lover".

    So the kids involved in this are just collateral damage? It's not just their lives they have to consider. What are you going to say when you get to the other side and one of these aborted children asks you " Why did you think that I wasn't good enough to live? " Time to put a paper bag over your head.

    Mountain Man. I have yet to read one comment where a poster mocked loss of liberties. Tea Party advocate Rod Arquette was discussing Utah's dirty air on the radio. He came to the following conclusion. There is nothing we can do about air pollution in Utah that would not involve some degree of government involvement in our lives. Therefore do nothing, just live with dirty air. That is typical Tea Party ideology. Don't do anything that might infringe on my freedoms to pollute the air, damage the environment, or misuse public lands. The Tea Party is anti-government to the extreme. Doing nothing is not progress. We need leaders who can work with the opposition party. The Tea Party is blinded by their hate for Obama. Reagan was willing to reach across party lines. The Tea Party is not.

    Impeachment? Really? What a laugh. I can't imagine a more catastrophic nightmare than the likes of Ted Cruz as President. The electorate in this country is changing and the GOP and its platform of anti gun control, anti marriage equality, anti women's right to choose, on and on is not helping their cause.

    During a CNN Interview, Ted Cruz spewed all the rhetoric he usually does with all the little catch phrases about Freedom, Obama Care and Religious liberty, etc. Finally the commentator asked him if he had ANY solutions? He was stumped and then got angry. Again the commentator asked him if he had ANY solutions? He asked if he had just one solution to any of the things that he had been pontificating on for the previous 10 minutes? For anything? He didn't.

    I have not yet heard one solution except attacks from Cruz, Lee and even Ms. Love.

    Where are their solutions?. Our duly elected President has at least followed through with his pledges to give Americans some form of Health Care. They shut the government down and cost us billions. Oh that's right it was for "freedom" Really?

    Some of the comments on here mocking the loss of our liberties are ample evidence of the moral decay that has occurred in America. Any decent man could never be elected in America now! You would prefer corruption, dictators and tyrants offering you something for nothing, your very souls in bondage. Alas, you are not the first in history to lose your freedoms and America will never again be a great nation because the majority of Americans are not great people anymore. God help us, you will awaken and find yourselves among the most wicked in history, ripe for destruction. "Fools mock, but they shall morn", said Jesus.

    RBB - "If you are deeply in debt and you think you should not spend any more than you make how do you compromise with someone who does not want any limits on spending? Will spending $1,000 more than your family brings in month after month really lead you to prosperity."

    Great questions! In the first case, if it were a couple, it would end in divorce. We all know how great that is. (sarcastic) Debt and money problem destroy one in every 3 marriages. Debt is not a harmless habit. The second part will lead not to prosperity, but to bankruptcy.

    So as a nation, when liberals and conservatives are in conflict, could it be because of the excessive debt and money problems? How do we divorce each other? We can't really do that. So we either all decide to get spending and debt under control, or we become like Greece, broke and bankrupt.

    Those who claim there aren't solutions being offered, yes there are. Spend less. Either agree on targeted cuts, or go across the board, but spend less. That is the answer.

    I am continually amazed at the traction that people like Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin get. Cruz is exceptionally intelligent, but like Palin he never really says anything. He just speaks in generalities sprinkled with certain buzz words and every fan hears exactly what he/she wants to hear.

    And both of them are just using their fans for their own aggrandizement. And pocketbook. Palin especially. Cruz actually has political ambitions, but Palin doesn't.

    The emperor has no clothes, folks. These people do not have ours or the country's best interests at heart.

  • RBB Sandy, UT
    April 26, 2014 4:21 p.m.

    Yes, the idea of the government spending no more than it makes is now a radical idea. We should compromise like Sen. Hatch and watch the government debt swell from less than 1 Trillion to 17 Trillion.

    If you are deeply in debt and you think you should not spend any more than you make how do you compromise with someone who does not want any limits on spending? Will spending $1,000 more than your family brings in month after month really lead you to prosperity.

    How many of us are willing to look our grandchildren in the eye and tell them. "Well honey, we had a lot of fun spending all that money. Good luck ever trying to pay it back."

    Every dollar of debt the Feds incur today is a tax on your children and grandchildren. Talk about taxation without representation.

    I find it interesting in reading all 42 comments as of this writing, only 5 are in favor of the Lee/Cruz two headed monster. A few were so nebulous I couldn't figure out what they were trying to say. The rest were anti Lee/Cruz. I think that says a lot. It appears their style is wearing thin.
    Also to the person who made the comment about the fact they didn't think Cruz could run for president because he was born in Canada. He was but to an American mother which qualifies him as a natural born American citizen. Evidently his dad is/was Cuban. Of course we could always have another birther movement on that.

    Well, it is clear that the majority here do not understand that Cruz, Lee, and the Conservative movement, to repurpose the Republican party back to the protection of Liberty as stated in the Constitution, represent the survival of the Republican party.

    Things such as "paths to citizenship," "Obamacare is the law of the land," and Boehner's mocking of conservatism, espoused by the establishment GOP is its own path to self-destruction!

    This article is nothing more than propaganda and re-entrenchment of the same issues that have been the platform of the Republican party for years. It is striking how this is the same small government discussion coming from the same people who like to use government to regulate and disadvantage others they disagree with. You can't have it both ways and it might be easier to believe such intentions without the inconsistencies. Seems like the same rhetoric that has been echoed in that sound chamber for years. It is disillusionment that the Republican party continues to stand against the principles of equality and true protection for all people.It seems like the party of wealth continuing to advance it interests to dominate and disadvantage those who are less fortunate.

    Indeed Utah was the place to have this right winger conclave. In Utah, for non-senior households this illustrates the tax burden:

    Lowest 20% of households by income - pay 9.4% of their income to the state and local gov'ts.

    Highest 1% of households by income - pay 5.1% of their income to the state and local gov'ts.

    If this bunch get their way this setup (or worse) will be imposed on the entire United States.

    Ted Cruz and Mr. Lee make Utah and Texas the Chicago Politic states for the GOP, oh sorry can't leave out Florida too. Mr Cruz, and Mr. Lee do not stand up for your "Liberty" to do more than work at minimum wage. They do not stand for the Liberty of Women making their personal choices on reproduction, nor do they stand for the personal Liberty to grow and use natural plants such as Marijuana. Do they? Oh perhaps the headline should say, Utah GOP cherry picks candidates for GOP offices by not inviting fellow Republican candidates to this Liberty filled event. It could have said Cruz stands for "SOME" Liberty but some he opposes.
    This is why the GOP is the dying white mans party.

    What I find very interesting looking at all the comments is the number of "likes" for each comment. Those comments that are negative as they regard Cruz, Lee and Love receive far more likes than those that are pro Cruz et al. There are also a lot more comments against them than for them. Utahns deserve more credit for actually knowing what is going on than they get. They made a mistake with Lee, hopefully they won't repeat that mistake by electing Love.

    Message to the Tea Party: Stand up for your country for once instead of always focusing on "your rights." You say you love your country, but you are not defending it or supporting it. Support the rule of law, not just the laws you like but all laws. If there are laws you don't like, work through legal political processes to change them. Uphold the constitution, even when its provisions or interpretations go against your beliefs.

    Claims that Obama is lawless: just more political propaganda from the party that brought us the Patriot Act, the genuine threat against our liberties.

    Claims of lawlessness are obvious self-serving propaganda, to assure the faithful republican base that there is merit in blind, partisan hatred against a good man and great president. And that's OK? because Obama is a democrat?

    The acid test: if you supported President Bush's signing statements, his implementation of the NSA warrantless spying program, and his selective execution of laws passed by Congress but you condemn President Obama for "lawlessness", you are part of the problem. Why support this vicious craziness? Blindly consuming this red meat is the real cause of our loss of liberties all around this nation. Are you simply seeking electoral advantage in 2014? Partisan self serving much, DN Subscriber, Brentbot, ThidBarker?

    All presidents have executive authority to implement laws. Why believe propaganda, but only when it is spread against democrats? Why let your fellow citizens be, for example, lied into war against Iraq, then lied into denying your fellow citizens access to health care? This is not politics as usual for patriots, this is the essence of evil.

    First the midterm elections are not going to prove that America is embracing the republican agenda (whatever that might be). Unless the economy is flying the party out of power always picks up seats in the midterm election, especially if it is during the second term of a president.

    I am looking forward to the republicans taking control of the House and Senate. I don't however think they are, because they will not be able to blame the democrats any more, if nothing gets done, it will be on them. I think their great challenge is as the party of NO, who do you say NO to if you control both houses. Oh thats right they will still be able to blame the President.

    Dixie Dan -

    After the Affordable???? Health Care Act, there is nothing left in my wallet worth holding on to, except the pictures of my kids and grand kids, and my driver's license ID, so I can vote these bums out. The money, over the past 5 years, has all been channeled to the top 1% by the Obama administration.

    Baron - Saying Mia is just a 'race' representative is, by the left's definition, a racist thing to say.

    I love how much credit you liberals give Lee and Cruz for the shutdown, when they vote in the senate, which voted to borrow enough to fund every liberal dream out there. Their votes were in the minority. Do you understand that the majority vote is what counts? You must be very afraid of them to be transferring the blame to them.

    How we have fallen so far as a country why that you are a radical for arguing that government should actually spend less than it brings in. It is as if we have live a fairytale where government can just keep spending without consequence. We have a national debt of $17,000,000,000,000 with no plan in place to stop borrowing - let alone pay it back.

    To those who believe that we have more rights, etc. than any other people, do you read the news?

    The government can now:

    take your property - not to build a park or widen a road - but to sell it to a developer to build something else which will build more revenue.

    track your telephone calls with no showing of probably cause as expressly required in the constitution.

    discriminate against an organization based on its political views

    have the President unilaterally decided which laws (or parts there of) he wants to implement and which ones he doesn't without any input from Congress.

    The solace that Mike Lee and Ted Cruz should get is that everyone laughed at Winston Churchill through the 1930s because he claimed Hitler was a threat.

    It is heartening to see (and hear) men and women like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Mia Love who see the perils facing our country, offer solutions to fix our problems, and have the courage and zeal to off themselves into the political arena (facing the certain character assassination from the left) to save our country.

    Bravo to these bold, bright and courageous leaders.

    Sadly, many on the left fail to see what their policies and leaders have done to our nation, and the legacy they have created which will destroy any chance for our children to live well and prosper in the future.

    We are at a crossroads, and if the left prevails, we are certainly doomed. If Cruz, Lee and Love and the conservatives gain power, we may be able to save this country and improve the lots and lives for everyone (rich and poor).

    Choose wisely, and ignore the class warfare rhetoric and distortions used against them.

That's why I oppose extreme far right fringe dwellers like Cruz, Lee, the Eagle Forum, etc., etc., etc. The only "liberty" they support and defend is the "liberty" to act and believe they way THEY deem proper (nobody else has even the slightest right to liberty).

    Cruz needs to make up his mind on the ACA. He didn't want it in the first place, would like to see it repealed, and yet he's also unhappy because Obama hasn't fully implemented it. Let's be honest here: If Obama proposed implementing the entire tea party agenda, Cruz and Lee would still be all over him for something or other. They both define themselves not by what they believe, but what they're against.

    Midterm elections in November will be a wonderful day of liberation, especially in the Senate and America will be fundamentally changed back to how our founding fathers dreamed it should be. Does the government run its citizens or do the people run the government? Does the government tell the people what they can and can not do or do the people tell the government what it can and can not do? Do you fear the IRS, HHS, EPA, NSA, DOJ, etc., or do the government bureaucrats fear the people? Does the government make your choices or do you make the government's choices? All these questions and more to be re-determined in November!

That he or his supporters don't appreciate those freedoms and blessings tells me more about them than it does the state of the United States of America.

    Raw meat for the Party of War and Poverty. I just love how much these people want to defend America and save the country. Not a one of them said one word during the George W. Bush years.
    Americans had their freedom gutted, liberties stripped away and all these Republicans would say was "Shut up this is good for America."

    Never Forget.

    We attended this great event tonight in Sandy, UT. It was an incredible evening! Mike Lee's and Ted Cruz's messages were both heartfelt, inspiring, and motivational. They are sincere, good men who campaigned to go to Washington, D.C. and stand firm for the U.S. Constitution. They have never lost their way as have many others who get caught up in the power and money grab there! They are steadfast, true, and principled men of character. It was thrilling to hear them speak in person (we were only eight rows back) and feel their love, passion, and vision for this great country. The reception of the crowd was exceptional and heart-warming! We were proud Utahns! We love Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, true Americans!

    Ted is not quite a Bachmann or Palin, but he's trying so hard. Run Ted, run.

    Lots of tough guys - as long as there's no one around to disagree.
