What did he say that makes you to think that he is a theocratic totalitarian?

In a statement posted to his Facebook account, Cruz criticized European nations for allowing migrants into their countries, saying, “Our European allies are now seeing what comes of a toxic mix of migrants who have been infiltrated by terrorists and isolated, radical Muslim neighborhoods. We will do what we can to help them fight this scourge, and redouble our efforts to make sure it does not happen here. We need to immediately halt the flow of refugees from countries with a significant al Qaida or ISIS presence. We need to empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized, ... The days of the United States voluntarily surrendering to the enemy to show how progressive and enlightened we are at [sic] an end.” he wrote.

This is the textbook definition of fascism. The same arguments were used to persecute the Church of Latter Day Saints in their nascence. I don't see Cruz the Christian responding to the terror that the Christian Lord's Resistance Army has reigned down on central Africa. Cruz and Trump are "convenient Christians" cruising for votes so they can then ignore Christian principles completely. Kasich on the other hand is good people.

Trump is a lying, hypocritical piece of shit. Cruz, however, is a loony fundie and a dangerous religio-fascist.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Kasich isn't good people if you're a woman, since he's so proud of defunding PP in Ohio and basically making it harder for poor women to get healthcare, but I agree he is less obnoxious than the other GOPites. I'm happy with him becoming the nominee because he isn't going to win, he is a snoozy grandpa incapable of energizing the base. Unfortunately, Cruz is a true believer/fanatic and is absolutely the worst candidate for president because of that. He doesn't care about who dies as a result of his decisions because he's an end-of-timeser. Like W, he hopes to precipitate the Rapture. Trump is a racist bully blowhard who seemingly hasn't realized he can't fire Congress or the Supreme Court. On the off chance he becomes President, I will be overjoyed to see Dems and Reps putting aside their differences to oppose him; we will have two parties of no--and perhaps the chance for those negatives to make a positive?

RE: Ted Cruz 101
Trump is first and foremost a showman. I don't thnik that him being president would change much to anything. He will be USA what Rob Ford was for Toronto. A pretty unremarcable, but still decent leader, but a complete shame (and source of hilarity). Cruz is a dogmatic and scarry leader. His uncompromising attitude can cause much more damage.

Cruz is by far the most sinister. And I get to say that because I am left-handed bitches.

How do liberals (and you) propose to fight with Muslim terrorists who infiltrate Mosques and our neighborhoods? how do you fight those who yesterday, today and tomorrow will kill innocent people?
How do liberals propose to fight those who hate us and want our blood?
How is it fascism to look for enemies where they hide - Mosques and our neighborhoods?

Cruz as scary as Obama. Obama is uncompromising.
Obama will never compromise on principles he believes are true. Cruz will never compromise on principles he believes are true. Cruz will compromise on other things.
If I knew that Cruz would compromise on principles that I believe I would never supported him.
Oh, Cruz doesn't scare me. Hillary and Berny do(two socialists)

Do you care about those people who died in Brussels? I do.

Obama compromised on gun control and on his biggest legacy obamacare. He was, in fact, criticised by his own party and base to be to compromising with the Republicans.
