    I think it'd be far less likely, considering the LP seems to be the more major 3rd party player regarding ballot access, media coverage, and campaign finance. The LP is already warming up to people like Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. Their entire reason for bringing Bill Weld on was to cater to these anti-Trump Republicans. Ted Cruz and his "vote your conscience" speech are already a shoe-in for the audience the LP is attempting to reach.

    If Rand Paul runs in 2020, and Ted Cruz lost his 2018 re-election, the chances of Cruz running in the LP will be even higher.

    I'm afraid so. I think Cruz and Rubio are still useful pawns to the establishment and 'New American Century' neocons. I think even if Cruz doesn't win his re-election, he still stands a very good chance of being tapped for the Libertarian Party nomination in 2020.

    Any real limited gov't, Tea Party type, Constitutionalist would already have a head-start after Cruz's refusal to endorse Trump nor stand by his pledge. This past election brought out quite a few skeletons for Cruz. If Texans knew in 2012 that Ted Cruz was getting sweetheart loans from Goldman Sachs to fund his campaign and the extent of his wifes relationship with Goldman and CFR, or that Cruz would place neocons and Goldman and CFR members on his campaign, they would have given Cruz a second thought. Maybe more Texans are woken up to Ted's fake evangelical-like sweet talk and his double-speak. After the RNC quite a few Texas delegates were turned off of Cruz and enough Texans were displeased enough to put Rick Perry ahead of Cruz in a hypothetical 2018 primary poll. Maybe things could change. No matter what though, I'm convinced Ted Cruz is a trojan horse to the Tea Party and a Bush neocon lackey.

    By Reine Preibus vowing to punish any 2016 Presidential candidate who doesn't endorse Trump, he essentially provided cover for Ted Cruz to endorse Donald. No matter what, I want to see Ted Cruz replaced in 2018 with a real Constitutionalist.

    What's wrong with this analogy? Would you eat from a bowl of skittles if you knew one, or three, could kill you? Would you take in refugees from war torn areas where isis has said they will use the refugee programs to spread their violence, and when several Federal officials have said there's no way to properly vet them? If Hillary, the administration, and neocon hawks can train, arm, fund isis fighters, and create an environment for them to grow; what makes you think these same people won't allow terrorists to come here, attack the US or create another false flag event that'll be used as a pretext to expand the police state?

    He still raised alot of money nation-wide. Even if Texans don't turn out for him, which I think will be the case, the LP would look at his support and ability to raise money and easily carry him to the nomination based on his anti-Trump, "vote your conscience" rhetoric of 2016. For the same reasons they brought Bill Weld on, they could easily bring Ted Cruz on. Neocons on the right, like Kristol, Jeb, and Romney have been giving more than usual lip service to the LP; I can easily see this continuing into 2020. Especially since Cruz is an establishment Bush boy himself.

    Does anyone else think the LP will choose Ted Cruz to be their 2020 nominee after his failed Senate re-election in 2018? I have a feeling this is going to happen.

    I didn't exactly say Trump was an anti-establishment candidate. I said the majority of Trump supporters I know, and what from what I've seen around the country, see Trump as an anti-establishment anti-politician. You can easily find supporters on youtube claiming to be voting for Trump because they see him as a change-maker, as something different than what we've been getting. These kind of voters, people who are looking for something different, who lean toward anti-establishment candidates, are people who we should be welcoming into the Liberty movement.

    According to almost 27% of the people voting in this poll, and the handful of positive Trump comments peppered throughout this forum; you are wrong. I'm sorry you feel the need to enforce your ideas and opinions on others, even if they are a minority in the forums. What I think is an even bigger mistake is the pushing away of new voters Donald brought into the system. People who voted for Trump as a change-maker, or anti-establishment anti-politician. These are supporters that could help Rand and his legislations, and the Liberty movement in general. Instead of trying to grow our numbers and form coalitions on things we agree on, I don't know why we're upfront trying to turn people away. To me, it seems counter-productive to the Liberty movement.

    It obviously doesn't represent the view of the site, or not the forum members for that matter, or else 100% would have voted "no". This banner accomplishes nothing, besides trying to turn off potential supporters who voted for Trump as an anti-establishment candidate.

    With 26% saying "yes"; maybe we should get rid of this banner, and start welcoming the new people Trump has brought out and who have voted to make Trump the nominee. Alot of these are new people, who gravitate to Trump because of his celebrity status and see him as an anti-establishment, anti-globalist candidate. Rand Paul and the Liberty movement in general could benefit from these "new voters". Or, we could continue to push them away with this up-front, anti-Trump rhetoric. Personally, I don't think it's right for the forum to display banners such as this, that don't represent the view of all the forum members.

    Nothing about that says anything about "rounding up" illegals. From my understanding, his plan is to enforce immigration law and deport illegals as they come through the system and to abandon Obama's catch and release policy. Notice he said, "subject to" deportation, and that they'd create a new deportation "task force" within ICE. This leads me to believe that a shift is still in the works, and that illegals will be reviewed and given an opportunity to stay in the US. In the past Donald has said that he would give illegals an expedited immigration process to come back into the US. I still think he will shift on this and just give those illegals a form of legalization and save the US the costs of deporting "good" illegals by just giving them some form of legal status.

    and if the only thing balancedrebellion has against Trump is the media's constant claims that he is a racist; then they don't really have anything on Trump at all. Calling a candidate racist is the oldest and most played out line of them all. We all know that if Rand was the nominee, they'd be calling him a racist too; just like they tried to do with his dad Ron.

    No offense, but this sounds ridiculous. I don't think they'll be able to fool many people with this. People are either going to vote for Johnson or not. Matching me with a Democrat who will vote for Johnson just to help cancel out a pro-Hillary vote is ridiculous and counter-productive to defeating Hillary if that was my original intention of voting for Trump anyway. This just looks like another mechanism to generate an email list.

    Maybe because that's exactly what Gary Johnson has said. It doesn't really matter what Gary says; it's obvious this is actually a Weld/Johnson campaign.

    How does the "Constitution" Party nominee think that Ted Cruz qualifies to run for POTUS? The Constitution says that only a natural born citizen can run for POTUS. Ted Cruz is a naturalized citizen as defined by the Constitution
