Go here for info about the March 5 Presidential Caucus in KY - There also will be some type of gathering of the candidates on March 3 – Also see these highlights of the caucus

If voters feel like the 2016 election is the last election to save the American experiment, Ted Cruz really is their only option. If voters feel like things are coming to an end in this country without drastic action, they really do not have a choice between Rubio and Cruz. They have only Cruz. Cruz is the disruptive candidate. A voter who feels like the end is near without drastic action has to take the gamble on Cruz, who still has a good chance to win. — Erick Erickson

“For years I’ve watched governments take control of our lives, and their argument is always the same: fewer costs, greater efficiency. But the result is the same too: less control by the people, more control by the state, until the individual’s own wishes count for nothing. That is what I consider my duty to resist.” – the Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey

Ben Carson thinks Cruz should be responsible for repeating statement made by Carson staffer, but Carson should not be responsible because he did not authorize his own  staffer to make the statement.  Huh?

 

Conservatives should cheer the results of the Iowa caucus, regardless of which candidate they supported. That doesn’t mean the establishment can’t rise from the grave – they co-opted tea partyer Rubio once, and may be able to do so again. But it does mean that for the moment, default successful national Republicanism is conservative. And that’s a big win for the grassroots. — Ben Shapiro

A biographer of Herbert Hoover said that he was a great man but not a great president. Had he never become president, Hoover’s greatness in other areas would still be remembered today. But his wrong economic moves as president were amplified by his successor, and mired the country in a decade of tragedy. Great achievements in other areas are no reason to make someone president.Thomas Sowell

The Carson camp can be as angry as it wants, but it needs to suck it up. They’re the ones who generated national headlines that Carson was going back to Florida. They are the ones who should have known how the media would read such a story. That they did not is another reflection of a campaign stuck in amateur hour.Erick Erickson

If America’s founders had intended that a person had to be “born in the United States” in order to be qualified to serve as President, why didn’t they write that simple phrase into the Constitution?  Instead, they wrote that the person must be a “natural born citizen”, which must have meant something different from “born in the United States,” or they would have used the simpler terminology.  The majority of legal scholars say that “natural born citizen” means someone who is a citizen at birth.  That is consistent with the usage of that terminology at the time the Constitution was written. — Theresa Camoriano

Contrary to what Trump’s supporters may believe, there is no “thin line” that separates a benevolent dictator from a tyrannical one; they are both dictators.  – Bob Barr

“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK?” …. “It’s like incredible. –Donald Trump

How stupid are the people of Iowa? – Donald Trump

If the establishment would quit hyperventilating over Ted Cruz and get behind him they could do more than anything else to advance the cause they profess to believe in. — David Limbaugh

“The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office.” —  Ludwig von Mises

The antipathy for Cruz is born of fear. They fear the end of the government gravy train if he gets elected. They fear that with Cruz at the helm, Americans may just discover they don’t actually need Washington involved in every facet of their lives. They fear an uncompromising constitutional standard bearer as head of the party. – Godfather Politics

The Cruz campaign has raised more than 45 million dollars from more than 300,000 people. – The Blaze

The media will attack Cruz as being too extreme – the same way they attacked Reagan – Erick Erickson

The most effective response to people operating this cultural and political wrecking ball is to turn the tables. Whose values and beliefs have worked in the past to improve the lot of the people, and whose have failed? Traditionalists don’t have to play defense. They have only to remind Americans of the mess the secular progressives have made.Cal Thomas

What happened in Louisville was made even worse because not a single person was arrested – not one. Instead, they loaded up the little thugs and thugettes on city buses to take them back to where they came from. Now, what kind of message does that send? Does the city have a “Pillage & Plunder & Get a Free Ride Home” policy?Todd Starnes

Obama and the Democrats keep insulting our intelligence by comparing the Syrian refugees to the Pilgrims. The most obvious difference between the two groups is that the Pilgrims were escaping religious persecution, whereas these refugees belong to an evil cult that consistently engages in religious persecution. — Burt Prelutsky

When a private citizen or company violates rules, misrepresents facts or pollutes a river, government penalties are swift and severe. It’s different when the government screws up.Paul Driessen

Alone of the GOP field, Cruz is the guy who could be a game-changer as president. The more the establishment panics the more my optimism grows. — Red State

The first responsibility of any government is to protect the people already in the country. Even in this age of an entitlement mentality, no one in a foreign country is entitled to be in America if the American people don’t want them here.Thomas Sowell

Here’s a climate prediction for the year 2115: Liberals will still be organizing campaigns against yet another mooted social or environmental crisis. Temperatures will be about the same.Bret Stephens

Instead of going to Paris to talk about the weather, Obama should be devising an urgent strategy to defund the terrorists and help rebuild the U.S. economy by making America the energy-dominant nation on the planet. — Stephen Moore

 

If you want an electable candidate who will help the GOP with Hispanics, kill Obamacare, handle illegal immigration, move the country to the Right and fight for the principles conservatives stand for, you cannot do any better than Ted Cruz.    – John Hawkins

When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in “diversity” and demanding “safe spaces.” — Mona Charen
