Well, he certainly doesn't care about the LGBT community. He wants to take away their constitutional rights. He even appears on stage with preachers calling for the execution of gay people.

That sounds like a Nazi fascist to me ... not a "constitutionalist."

Greetings from the place where the Constitution was debated, authored, and ratified.

First off, the LGBT community is tiny. Its like 3.5% of the population. The media loves to make it seem like there are gigantic numbers of them and they are all being treated unfairly. Second, Cruz says it should be up to each state and the people to decide the laws, and he's right. 5 judges overstepped their bounds by forcing gay marriage onto the country. Gay marriage was shot down last time it went to vote here in liberal as hell California. The states and the people should decide these matters, not the courts. Cruz is willing to let that happen. Although he personally doesn't agree with the lifestyle, if the people speak and are for it, then there you have it. Thats how it should be.

This interview also reminds me of when Ted Cruz was interviewed by Stephen Colbert, addressing the audience he stated that the "marriage issue" should be determined at the "ballot box" and not by "unelected" judges at the Supreme Court. He received much applause because that is the right thing to say and the right thing to do.

He is a Constitutionalist for ALL the people, not just those who are his supporters.

We know all of that. Too bad he was born in Canada.

Don't understand the logic....if they were 30% of the population instead of 3.5%, then they get treated differently?

Ted Cruz does not want to take away your gay rights. His POINT is that the states need to decide and not unelected judged on the court - period.
