Robert Reich: Ted Cruz Is Even More of an Extremist Threat Than Donald Trump

I'll accept this endorsement on Ted's behalf.

1. Cruz is more fanatical. Sure, Trump is a bully and bigot, but he doesn't hew to any sharp ideological line. Cruz is a fierce ideologue: He denies the existence of man-made climate change, rejects same-sex marriage, wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service, believes the 2nd amendment guarantees everyone a right to guns. He doesn't believe in a constitutional divide between church and state, favors the death penalty, rejects immigration reform, demands the repeal of Obamacare, and takes a strict "originalist" view of the meaning of the Constitution.


2. Cruz is a true believer. Trump has no firm principles except making money, getting attention, and gaining power. But Cruz has spent much of his life embracing radical right economic and political views.


3. Cruz is more disciplined and strategic. Trump is all over the place....

4. Cruz is a loner who's willing to destroy government institutions to get his way...

Okay, I'm sold.

I have to apologize for another politicking post. I didn't want to do a bunch in a row. I like to break things up.

However, I am having trouble finding any news. I mean, Reid endorsed Clinton. This is being played as big news. It's... eh, doesn't seem that big to me.

If you can find some stuff, please post it here.
