Well, it is official, Ted Cruz is now in the game. In fact, he's the first serious candidate that has put his hat in the ring. I caught part of his announcement speech. While I wasn't all that wild about the religious talk, the idea of a flat tax and abolishing the IRS warmed my heart. I'm sure there will be some other announcements, but as of right now, I'm down with supporting his candidacy. That is not to say there aren't some other GOP potential candidates that would be solid, but I'm sympatico with much of the platform Cruz is running on.
