I can't stand his face either. It really gets to me. I don't think other people feel as strongly about some faces as I do, but some people's faces make me feel extremely angry, and I know it's completely irrational.

Seth Godin in another example. Every time I see his face I start to feel really angry. I hate him to my core.

People are very hung up on style when it comes to Ted. Probably why I've yet to meet a woman who supports him.

I'm looking for a candidate whose principles align with mine and who is wise. Wisdom is difficult to ascertain from a distance, but I am 100% confident he's the most intelligent person in the race. The strategic approach he's used to advance his political career to the highest level in less than 10 years is a pretty good indication of wisdom. He didn't get here on charm, as you all point out.

I think the term "cut-throat" wasn't meant to be literal. Plus, the Clinton operatives don't use knives.

Smart /= wisdom.

I've always wondered what kind of bizarre troglodytes support Ted Cruz, aside from extremely gullible evangelicals. Now we have a specimen in the wild.

Take it as a given that politicians on the national stage are going to be slimy opportunists. Then all that's left is to back the guy who supports your interests and principles.

If your top 5 are something like...

- lowering top marginal tax rates for income and gains
- spending cuts (ideally to the entitlement programs that incentivize degeneracy)
- presumption against regulation
- respect for the rule of law in the exec branch
- keeping the actual troglodytes (Muslims) out of the USA.

...who's your guy if not Cruz?

All the social issues continue to be a virtue-signalling sideshow to wind up the low-information voters on either side. No one is about to break up gay families or stop the taxpayer funded pelvic exams. By all means score some points in your social circle by bashing the outgroup, but don't bring that nonsense into the ballot box.

You sound like a very nice person. And by that I mean you sound like a dickhead.

box.
I'm not so certain Cruz has a presumption against regulation. He seems all in favor of inserting fundamentalist Christian mores into the legal code. As for respect for the rule of law in the exec branch, good luck with that. Everyone talks a good game about that, but then they sit down behind that Resolute desk and all that shit is gone. Unitary executive, baby. Unitary executive.
