It's a simple-yet-intriguing idea: a web site that allows presidential candidates from across the country -- and politicians vying for a host of other races, too -- to simply and unequivocally state their positions on important issues so that voters can know exactly where they stand.
South Carolina voters have gained a reputation over the past few years of being able to accurately pick the Republican presidential candidate who will end up with the party's nomination.

Going on to liken Cruz to a carnival barker, King verbally eviscerated the Texas senator. Of course, there's ...
