The Insiders: Ted Cruz is burning bridges in Washington. Does it matter? – The Washington Post

Another interesting observation that resulted from my probing was that when you ask people about Sen. Cruz, they often volunteer something about Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). The two are often thought of and talked about in tandem. But the comments about Sen. Paul were frequently made in a much different tone, suggesting that people are intrigued by him and what he has done in the Senate so far. It is my guess that he is beating expectations and has impressed some of the old Reagan guard.

In Washington, you don’t need friends, but you do need allies. There is no doubt that Sen. Cruz is burning bridges in Washington. It will be interesting to see if he can take those ashes from inside the beltway and build something useful in the early primary states for a 2016 presidential run.

Well, let’s see:  Ted Cruz, who is alienating the most corrupt, dangerous Ruling Class in our history, or Rand Paul, who seems to be sucking up to them.

So hard to choose….

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
