cruz could easily make ten times more money than he does so this is not about that. congress is highly fucked up so not much gets done there so it is not a place to go for accumulating power either, so if that is his drive he could do much better elsewhere. if one wants to be prez then the thing to do is come from state government, and I highly doubt that cruz does not know this but he choose to be in the Senate anyway so I doubt that he has any great drive to be prez.
the overwhelming odds are that the guy mostly wants to serve the people.
Where do you want to go Frank?
I think you understand the "C'mon", Hawk.
But I acknowledge that was a good come-back.
Cruz is a big time looser, Hawk. Don't back him.
I have this crazy idea that if every member of congress worked on what their constituents want done then america would be a much better place. if this was happening right now congress would be focused like a laser beam on jobs. cruz is a step in the right direction,I can support that.
Finally we are in agreement, Hawk. That is a crazy idea.
In most places, members of congress CANNOT do "what their constituents want done"...because there are almost equal parts of their constituency on the far right and on the far left of most questions...and those questions become irreconcilable.
Can you imagine someone representing both you and me...and doing "what we want them to do?"
I could pick a half-dozen people in this forum and imagine someone representing you and them...with no chance of the representative "doing what the group wants done."
The argument that "they should be doing what the people want done" is as dysfunctional as our population...and our population, Hawk, is incredibly dysfunctional.
Two other things:
First: Congress is never going to do anything about "jobs"...because human labor (and human brain power, for that matter) is becoming less and less valuable in the workplace. Congress should be "focused like laser" on how to deal with an economy where there will NEVER again be enough decent paying jobs for everyone who wants and needs one.
Second: Cruz is so far away from being "a step in the right direction"...I have to hope that you were just kidding when you said that. Hawk, you are an intelligent person...and you should be able to see through Cruz like the transparent pane of glass that he is. He is the ultimate empty suit.
