Unless you have your head stuck in the sand you must have noticed that a few very rich clans are buying your vote through their various organizations. Their goals are not just to buy the republican party , their goal is to own the country. I know you cringe at being a hooker but it may be some comfort to you to know I include myself in that acknowledgement. No they will never get me to vote republican but they can buy enough votes to buy a president and congress and then it's game over.
Here's a list of who's who is in this nasty little game borrowed from a Robert Reich blog you can read here.http://robertreich.org/
They include David and Charles Koch (and their front group, “Americans for Prosperity’); Peter Thiel, leverage-buyout specialist John Childs, investor Howie Rich, Stephen Jackson of the Stevens Group, and executives of JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs, (all behind the “Club for Growth”); and Crow Holdings’ Harlan Crow, shipping magnate Richard Uihlein, and investment banker Foster Friess; executives of MetLife and Philip Morris, and foundations controlled by the Scaife family (all bankrolling “FreedomWorks.”)
Reich points out the above bunch have decided that their man in 2016 is Ted Cruz of Texas, who in my opinion has a snowball chance in hell of being elected. Don't care who the Dems run Cruz will not win no matter how much money they throw at us. Here's a site that list's his stand on all issues he has spoken on and finally rates him as far right (no surprise here). Just a typical God, Abortion, Gays and Guns kind of republican that will get beat every time.
In the last election the republicans identified what they had to do to be competitive and that was get the women, Latino, and black votes, do you see anything in his views stated above that will do that.. Come on , be honest he is not a winner but that's where the money will flow to get your vote. Just like the Sarah Palin choice that came from the same group of men cost you the election Kruz will be the same.
It wasn't a great surprise to me , especially after I saw a republican poll that had Chris Cristy pulling only 4 % . The one republican that I would have at least listened to.
So once again in 2016 you republicans are going to be left with a really shitty choice and yeah I know you won't vote Democratic and I am not sure I will either. I'm not in love with Hillary but it looks like that's where the Dem money will be heading. If their ever was a time for a strong third party candidate 2016 is the time.
ONE THING YOU KNOW -IT TAKES MORE THAN 30% TO WIM AND THAT'S WHAT YOU WILL GET WITH A CRUZ.
