    Ted Cruz’s campaign is handing out bottled water in Flint — but only to anti-abortion groups

    Maybe Cruz wants to be seen as more evil than Trump. The behaviors of the R candidates simply defy common sense.

    I don't see anything "evil" as such, just a typical politician spending a few $ so he can look like a hero.

    Sure it would be better if he would help getting the underlying issues fixed, but he still one notch better than all those other who willfully ignore the problem or deny that there even is a problem.

    I understand their reasoning, about supporting life, but it seems a little truncated, their belief. If they allow the elimination of jobs, they are depriving people to earn a living to make the money needed for workers to live and prosper, pursue happiness, and have to be free -- liberty. So they are cannot be pro-life as such, and since the Constitution also says "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" people might want that line to remain in any new Constitution - since some bozos on the internet say that the US should make a new one for some reason.

    America has no problems. The people are just lazy and spoiled and the companies are overtaxes and over-regulated (despite decades of taxes and regulations being dismantled, and union memberships (FWIW) at all-time lows and I know more and more union people that agree that unions have had their day, thanks to laws still in place and their stories of corruption within the unions as well. There are truths in the middle.)

    He or she. Though it is not about the gender but the action, so the only hurdle left is to eliminate gender stereotypes and applying those to opposite genders when they act like the gender opposite theirs, often because the voter was sexist and thinking that a woman would run things differently than a man because she's a woman and thus is a gatherer and not a hunter and the rest of it all... must've been fun voting for Thatcher all the time when she acted just like the men that her voters thought she wouldn't ever emulate because, you know, she's a woman and therefore is sopping with compassion and empathy by default (sexism on the part of the voters in thinking that) -- or her acting just like the men so she could be in the men's only club (also sexism, on her part. Neither side has a monopoly.)
