Letters to the editor, August 8

Presidential prospects

All the tea party types such as Roberts, Mach, Gore and Solomon rave about Ted Cruz and how they want him to run for president.

If these radicals could read the U.S. Constitution (Section Two, Article One), they would know he cannot be a candidate. Cruz is not a Texan; he is not even an American, he is Canadian and only half that.

His father is Cuban.

The prospect of Perry being a candidate for president is laughable. He will only embarrass himself again and make Texas look bad. The only way he was elected governor is because of the carpetbaggers flooding Texas to get the jobs created by welcoming businesses that ignore safety regulations and cause the deaths of firemen like in West and by Defense Department installations and contracts that are attracted by the agreeable weather.
