I don't find Cruz despicable at all.  Opinionated, maybe but so is Rand Paul.  Beto was bankrolled to the tune of 80 mil and still lost.  Wonder what happened to the residual funds?

I'm all about having numerous (candidates), aka: Idiots, running for pres on the Democratic ticket.  More the merrier.  The debates (especially the first one) will be the ultimate dog and pony show and I won't miss it.  Will e better than the NFL championship game (I didn't watch that, I will never watch any prof football game again).

Beto is a certifiable idiot.  Just the right idiot to run for pres on the Democrat (read left wing Socialist) ticket.  They need double barrel Joe Biden too.

Side:

If Beto believes what he says, he's an idiot. And because I believe Beto is bonkers (coo coo for coco puffs), he does believe it. He goes out on the stump and does platitudes. No real policy, nothing concrete. But while answering questions, he smiles, brushes the swath of hair from his forehead, just like Bobby Kennedy used to do. It's possible he could get some early love from adoring fans, but he's running for president, not the best Bobby Kennedy impersonator. Sooner or later he's going to have to throw out some substance. It will be so bad even female libs are going to say a cute, but too much of
an empty suit.

Then again, Justin Trudeau is the Prime Minister of Canada, so what do I know?

Wow.

Its like you just described our last President.

Platitudes.

No real substance.

No real policy.

Nothing Concrete.

Yep - those words make me think of "Hope and Change" and 8 years of smart *** comments that the press said were all Presidential.

I'm with you 85% of the way. Beto and Obama match up on those counts. But here is the 15% difference. Obama is a man of color, and Beto ain't. Dems identity politics today boxes in Beto. He is a privileged white guy. That alone will be his downfall. The fact he's also an idiot makes it easier to leave him by the side of the road.

Wish we had a Dem on the forum that would weigh in.

I thought Beto claimed some Hispanic heritage?

Does this not count as a minority - at least partially - just like Obama?

Well, ain't you the smart one on the forum.I'm having a hard time figuring out how any of these left-wing looneys, IF they should win the nomination, can tack far enough to the center to win the general. So far, I hope, illegals cannot vote.Next time, maybe. I'll be four years closer to the end, so maybe it won't matter as much.

Some very different aspects of NZ government that don't hold true here.

One, they have no 2nd Amendment to protect them
Two, They have a prime minister who can create laws and enact them without anyone's consent or due process
Three, they aren't confiscating the black guns, they aren't selling anymore and the ones out there are being bought back at fair market value (supposedly costing the NZ government 200 mil.

Here, the gun grabbers, aka: Liberal Democrats want you to give up your firearms for free.  Ain't gonna happen that way with me.  They aren't getting shitte from me except maybe a FMJ in a vital spot.  I don't play that game well.

And does anyone think the crazy people are going to give up their guns.  Not sure how the law is going to be written in NZ but unless there is a penalty for possessing a gun not many people are going to be turning them in..I have a couple that aren't registered.  I'd bury them somewhere if it got to be illegal here to own a gun..

4 years in prison and a 10 grand (NZ money) for failure to comply.  It only applies to semi-auto rifles and back guns.  Already are  giving them up, turning them in.  In NZ, the citizens have a different attitude than we have here.

You better hope and pray out new Democrat Governor don't introduce the Red Flag law here in Michigan.  Red Flag laws allow anyone to call LE on anyone if they feel that person is a menace and the LE confiscates all their firearms until it's determined that they are not a menace to themselves or others.  Basically it's the he said, she said but you lose your guns.

What is your definition of crazy people?  Most wacko people think they are just fine.

But I didn't pay close attention to the details since it wasn't here,,,,,,,,yet!

I read about the proclamation of gun confiscation in NZ after the Muslim slaughter. Just like that.

Hasn't happened here yet. Yet every time some nut job kills a lot of folks they push for "sensible" gun control. Sensible means another step to gun confiscation.

In Venezuela the people don't have guns. The also don't have food, medicine, or any other
of the consumables, we take for granted. What can they do? Not much. The people who control the country are the only ones with guns. All they have to do is take care of the military, especially the generals, and they're golden.

Newsbreak.... no one who illegally owns guns will have to give up anything until they get caught using them.... meanwhile criminals will hold all the firepower and thank Dems at the ballots.  Just dont get on the witness side of a drug deal or home invasion and Nancy promises you will be just fine!
