    Ted Cruz :flag:

    Many here are very interested in 2nd Amendment issues, and Ted Cruz is one of the best in support of the original intent of our founders.

    He supports the original intent of the COTUS/BOR, as Scalia did......

    This is the place to discuss who you'd like to see nominated and/or discuss other's picks.

    I thought Ted said he wasn't interested in a SCOTUS seat... Or was that purely for "public consumption"? :dunno:

    Ted has already deferred the possible appointment to SCOTUS. I’d love it, but it’s not happening.

    I do not know, but I do know that I'd be enthusiastic about his nomination, if it did happen. I'm sure he's contemplating this question to himself right now.......

    For you Texans.......what would this mean for the senate seat he'd vacate?

    No, Ted probably has some skeletons best left in the closet so I think that's why he wisely ducked out of contention for the Supreme Court.

    Cruz has said that he doesn’t want the appointment. Not sure who the other nominees are.

    If there were skeletons.......you don't think the D's haven't already looked in every possible nook and cranny to find them?

    I would use the opportunity to troll it.

    I'd release the top 5, with his name on it. Then sit back and smile.

    Not necessarily. But any supreme court nominee's past you can be sure will go under the democrats electron microscope for any trace of a story they can magnify into something unseemly and they will pay for "witnesses" to come forth from 39 years ago etc. Thing's that may or may not be true but which could hurt someones re-election should the appointment not succeed. And if the Democrats can tie some foul deed of the appointee to a collusion in said deed with Trump and before the 2020 election, all the more better.

    I would have liked Ted Nugent. But this Ted will have to do.

    I voted no, NOT because I wouldn't want Cruz on the SCOTUS. I want Cruz staying in his Senate seat for the next four years. I want Trump to nominate Amy Coney Barrett for the SCOTUS position. I want Cruz voting to confirm her.
