Today's Larwyn's Linx sponsored by: #ConstitutionMan: Ted Cruz for President

QOTD: "Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has surged ahead to become the latest front-runner in the campaign for the Iowa caucuses, dislodging Ben Carson and opening an impressive lead over a stalled Donald Trump, a Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows.

The firebrand junior senator from Texas is backed by 31 percent of those likely to attend the Republican caucuses that start the presidential nomination season on Feb. 1. Trump is a distant second at 21 percent, up slightly from 19 percent in October, but below his peak of 23 percent in August...

...Cruz's 21-percentage-point jump since October is the largest surge between Iowa Polls recorded in at least the last five presidential caucus campaigns

When first and second choices are combined, he has the support of 51 percent of likely caucus-goers. The senator’s great leap forward comes largely at the expense of Carson, as Iowa’s evangelicals appear to have picked the candidate they want to get behind." --NewsMax

It is not "suppose", but rather, "there is" - and the list is not entirely complete, as open segregation of sexes can be added. What is missing is that the antidotes implied are reactive and not active. Cultural norms usually are the first line of defense and America has them. Some things have no place in our culture: picture ID's of people inside burkas, daily chants from mosques, allowing religious rage to give you a place, and so forth. We can't carry Bibles or materials into Saudi Arabia, and our women there show respect by adhering to some local customs, as Americans do in many places. Why is it wrong that we should want the same respect?

Cruz is leading nothing - the media knows he would have no chance against Hillary so now that they knocked out Carson they are working on Cruz to leave Rubio as the GOP nominee to split all GOP/IND votes once they reneg on Trump deal.

@anon 228 - whatever you say, chief. cruz is the real deal, a lifelong constitutional conservative. trump's cult of personality, otoh, reminds me of obama's.

trump's policy positions have been like splats of paint on an abstract painter's canvas.

do your research.

unlike you, i support any candidate who is outside of the establishment: cruz, trump or carson.

the rest can go pound sand.
