    I guess look for republican primary challengers, but in my mind this race is pretty safe for Ted Cruz at this point..

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    Kind of funny that the serial killer meme never surfaced much (at all?) here at RPF...

    Cruz has begun to work to defeat liberty candidates in Texas primaries. He has gone full Neocon and must be challenged and opposed. No matter how futile it may seem to go up against him.

    Surely there is someone who can run against him in the primary. Are there no Republicans in Texas who aren't from a JFK-killing family?

    Nobody yet. the election is 2 years away. Most candidates announce 6-10 months or so before the primary.

    It's not going to be a libertarian. It's going to be some establishment scab, worse than Cruz.

    Maybe some democrats can register and crossover. They have to wait another 20 years to even compete in Texas.

    Here's the pitch.

    Ted Cruz does not any bills passed.
    We need new important laws & Cruz can't work relationships in congress.
    Cruz is as bad as nativist Trump.
    He called the Leader a liar.


    One thing you can thank Trump for, is that little low energy prick G P Bush is probably toast moving to bigger office.


    This has been played out already with Cruzer Steve King vs an ethanol lobby guy:

    Iowa's 4th District:

    Anti-immigrant obstructionist Steve King vs Sensible Consensus Building Iowa-values Rick Bertrand"
    http://iowainformer.com/politics/201...rtrand-debate/

    • King boasts of Obamacare repeal bills, taking down ACORN


    • King supports Bertrand’s defamation lawsuit against a previous political opponent

    Later, the candidates discussed how much they liked each other. Bertrand said he didn’t personally find King unlikable. King argued that “likability,” like the word “fair,” was a very “ambiguous” term.


    • Both candidates make it clear they’re opposed to abortion
    • King fondly recalls the Mexican wall prop he showed off on the House floor


    • Bertrand struck a slightly softer note than King on immigration, saying it was time to do the “Christian thing” by abandoning rhetoric and helping undocumented immigrants with certain things like workforce visas, but not offering them a path to citizenship.
    • Bertrand trusts Donald Trump on terrorism


    • Debate moderator dances around use of the word “torture” as King and Bertrand take hardline stances on national security
    • King takes heat for never having chaired the House Ag Committee
    • “He’s no longer the speaker of the House, so if that opportunity arises again, my chances of being the chairman of the ag committee get significantly greater.”
    • Bertrand piled on: “People say this to me in the cattleyards, they say this to me at the ethanol plants, why is a junior member from Texas [chairing] that committee?”
    • Bertrand jokes about the controversial tweet King sent out before the Iowa caucuses
    • Earlier, Bertrand was asked about how his endorsement of then-Texas Gov. Rick Perry — like Cruz, an RFS foe — for president in 2012 was any different from King’s support this cycle for Cruz.Bertrand said that Perry had simply asked to host an event at his business in Sioux City to discuss the military, and Bertrand obliged: “He left, I shook his hand, I never saw him again.”

    Yep - the LP will give a nomination to someone if possible, but it is Cruz's race to win as long as he runs.
    Out of every one hundred men they send us, ten should not even be here. Eighty will do nothing but serve as targets for the enemy. Nine are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, upon them depends our success in battle. But one, ah the one, he is a real warrior, and he will bring the others back from battle alive.
