after all the flipflopping that has occurred already amongst the hispanics, he has no chance.

even though his heart may be right, he is a non-contender. PERIOD.

a list of hispanics that have led to this...
marco rubio, bil richardson, fabian nunez, antonio villaneigosa, joe baca, one bill gil, juan hernandez, francisco hernandez, etc...

the list goes on...

have you ever seen so many racists people ever? they all live on the platform of quote, "for the RACE, everything. outside the RACE, nothing."

and guys like cruz think they have a chance?

my guess is - for the next 6 generations, and maybe more, we won't ever see a hispanic president.

after all the talk of reconquista, la raza, mecha.. it will never happen.

At least there is the acknowledgement deep within of being a looser even before a start, what a leader?

I disagree,Hispanics are not joined at the hip and senator Cruz has shown nothing but loyalty to this country.He has maintained his position on immigration even with all the political threats being thrown around by all the bigots in the democratic party.

it's ok to disagree.

like I said, even if cruz is loyal and has a good heart. I believe he will still be a non-contender.

and the reason why is - because of all the previous activity by hispanics focused on amnesties..

people are really tired of having to repeat over and over again that we do not want another amnesty.

but is that stopping these politicians INCLUDING the hispanic ones to keep pushing this agenda at us?

you tell me?

Rick Perry is not running for Governor again. Rumor has it that he will be running for President again in 2016. I am sure God told him to do it like he did in 2012. If nominated he could choose Ted Cruz to be his running mate. A winning combination....two Texas right-winged idiots.

My favorite non-advertisement for Texas is by Lewis Black and why (along with Florida) is a state I would not visit.

I am a 5th generation Texan. I have never lived anywhere else and I never will.

Texas is a great state....but it has let the ultra right-winged Conservative Republicans try and ruin it.
