    "Rafael Cruz also wants to gut the economy by using the impossible gold standard."

    Well, why not? Glenn Beck is always trying to get people to buy his gold coin sponsor's products and he's a big Cruz supporter. And he tells us that life was far better back in the late 19th Century when American was "young and vigorous" and the Constitution was "respected".

    Rafael Cruz also wants to gut the economy by using the impossible gold standard. He will listen to the neo-cons that ruined the Bush Administration and the economy.

    I sure hope you know what you are talking about and not ended becoming another statistic among the many of "empty promises."

    Ted's war on coal is a sure fire way to lose millions of votes from the youth. He'd win a few Western states, Texas and a couple of Southern, welfare states but he has no appeal to the population centers in our country. Lose with Cruz in 2016.

    Wyoming has to be laughing. Wyoming State Legislators have been attacking dirty coal for years because they have the largest and cleanest coal in the world. Wyoming has been shutting down small coal companies for years. Ted Cruz must look like a uninformed comedian to them.

    Go TED GO!

    Interesting concept. Anything that advocates a position contrary to the accepted conservative position is a "War on [insert issue]". So we have a "War on Christianity" when we don't let people push their religion in our face and prohibit them from discrimination in business. We have a "War on Christmas" because business want a generic greeting for its Jewish and non-Christian customers. We have a "War on the 2nd Amendment" because we say the 2nd Amendment doesn't let you have any gun, any time, any where. And we have a "War on Coal" because we want healthier and cleaner energy because the pollution is having a deleterious affect on people's health. Next there will be a "War on Water" because we want clean water and "War on Air" because we want clean air to breathe.

    Coal is a dirty fuel. There is nothing to make it better. There is no such thing as "clean coal" because burning coal generates pollution causing respiratory problems and cancers with the by-products generated through the burning process. And there is nothing to recommend it as an good energy source.

    Fortunately, Washington is concerned about my freedom to breathe clean air...the threats to that freedom, among many others, don't come from Washington, but from the rich who could care less about my freedoms, who only care about how to get from multi-millionaire to multi-billionaire status.

    Cruz and His Archaic 19th Century Thinking...

    I believe him. I'll support anyone who will downsize the Federal government's reach into the States' and individual's rights. The biggest threat to America's freedoms doesn't come from outside it's borders. It comes from Washington.

    "Republican candidate Ted Cruz is promising to roll back what he calls President Barack Obama's 'war on coal' if he's elected president."

    Uh huh . . . In other words, Cruz promises to continue the Republicans' war on good sense and the American people.

    . . . Big surprise.

    Once again, Cruz is promising things that he can't deliver. And, once again, Republican voters will swallow whatever he's pushing.
