LOL – Ted Cruz On Debt Ceiling: “I Don’t Trust Republicans, I Don’t Trust Democrats”….

Well said….

Ted Cruz 2(via TPM) Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Wednesday defended his objection to initiating House-Senate budget negotiations unless Democrats take a debt limit increase off the table, saying he doesn’t trust his party to hold the line.

“The senior senator from Arizona urged this body to trust the Republicans. Let me be clear, I don’t trust the Republicans,” Cruz said. “And I don’t trust the Democrats.”

On Tuesday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) scolded Republicans for blocking negotiations. He was backed by Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME).

“Unfortunately,” Cruz said, “one of the reasons we got into this mess is because a lot of Republicans were complicit in this spending spree and that’s why so many Americans are disgusted with both sides of this house. … And every Republican who stands against holding the line here is really saying, let’s give the Democrats a blank check to borrow any money they want with no reforms, no leadership to fix the problem.”  (read more)

    Good call Ted, I too trust few on the right side of the aisle and none on the left side. The “go along to get along” philosophy of Washington has long been apparent to anyone taking the time to observe the “opperation” we call “government”. Twenty plus years ago when given the opportunity to converse with Rep. Ron Paul face to face, one on one I asked him (already knowing the answer) what a newly elected, Constitutionally minded first time representative of either house of congress faced upon arriving in DC was like. He as expected said, the leadership of whichever party he represented would come to him and tell him his only hope of sitting on a commitee, having a bill considered on the floor and being anything other than an obscure one termer depended on his voting the way he was :”encouraged” to vote. Since before and especially since that discussion, I have been trying to inform all that I can that “we the people” have been handed an “illusion” of “representative” governance..If we can manage to survive this latest attack (using BHO this time around) upon our Bill of Rights, granted by GOD and protected by our Constitution, we MUST rid ourselves of the “professional” politician. Once entrenched in Washington, their focus becomes more about longevity and the personal wealth that can be realised with same, than it does with the representation of their constituency or nation as a whole. Wake up America…turn off your tv’s, remove your children from the government “indoctrination centers” (public schools) and assert yourselves once again as the “BOSSES” of government no matter if it be local, statewide or federal. It is far past time we held them accountable and made them and US realise they work for US! They are OUR servants and not the other way around. STOP reelecting the Feinsteins, Pelosis. Schumers, Boxers, Reids etc. ad nauseum. Turn again to the one TRUE God and the precepts upon which our Republic was founded and state without hesitation….NO MORE !!!

    Men like John McCain give seniority a bad name.

    I think John McCain is one of the least trustworthy people in Washington. He has lied repeatedly to the people of Arizona to get elected. He acted like he was tough on the border to get elected then quickly betrayed the people after he was safely in office. He is the poster child for compromise and lack of integrity. He has always governed against the wishes of his constituents. “O.K. we will build the damm fence.” Where is it John? At least you know what the liberal are about and they don’t hide it so you can see them coming which is more honorable than what McCain does. He is the enemy within. I think like his daughter he has absolute distain for true conservative principles. The fruit didn’t fall far from tree.

    Good call ted. I don’t trust Rs, Ds, including you. If there’s a P adjective anywhere near a person’s name I don’t trust ’em….Rubio is a good example of why…as is McCain.

    I don’t trust them either, so we’re in agreement there.

    One way to know if something is kosher or not is to watch McCain – whatever he does, you can bet it’s not in your best interest. Here’s a guy that finished 895th in his class of 900 and has been a failure ever since. The fact that this guy was nose to nose with Obama the first time around following the Bush debacle in the midst of economic collapse tells you that the conservative movement COULD gain steam if they just put up the right person and platform. Sadly though, 90% of republicans don’t get it, and the ones in CONgress are generally as bad or worse than the leftist.

    How does everyone feel about Rand Paul? For the “R” side, I feel like he would be the true better choice because it seems like he’s not siding with the likes of McCain

    I like Rand Paul on the personal liberty side. when it comes to mixing personal liberties with stripping protectionism (which made this country strong up until the 80’s, and was backed by our founders). Although protectionism and anti-trust isn’t followed anymore which causes a lot of our economic problems. The Gramm-Leachy-Bliley Act also allowed banks to become unregulated(mixing the commercial side with the investment side)which then the Federal government bailed out anyway. regulation is good, but most regulations only apply to multinationals and not small business as Republicans would have you believe. Democratic policies are no better though. It’s the same sham. Obama’s policies and Romney’s policies are the same. we need a political party that supports what our founders stood for. our founders never stood for a free market. unregulated banks just caused the Great Depression, and now the sham took out great FDR policies to allow the banks to leach off the Federal government. the Austrian school is a sham. research the American School of Economics. Peace
