Gotta Love Ted Cruz

SPARTANBURG, SC - APRIL 3:  Senator and GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz answers questions from local media following a town hall meeting at the Beacon Drive-in restaurant on April 3, 2015 in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  The Beacon Drive-in, traditionally a popular venue for campaigning politicians, was Cruz's 2nd stop of the day in South Carolina.  (Photo by Richard Ellis/Getty Images)

I do not write much about the 2016 election, but I try to follow it as closely as can reasonably expected from a European. As good news keeps piling up (the establishment pussycat Jeb Bush basically nowhere, and the traitor Santorum not even on the radar screen) I live in terror of seeing my favourite candidate, Ted Cruz, start veering toward the centre in order to “broaden his appeal”, which is what candidates do when they want to lose both race and face (Santorum docet).

When I read this (disregard the video, I am talking about the article) I could not avoid a great sense of relief.

Very intelligent guy, Ted Cruz. Not blinded by ambition like Santorum. I truly hope he will stay the course and refuse to water down his message, though you can bet your hat there will be no lack of “advisors” suggesting to him he does just that.

The way I see it, Cruz is not necessarily running for the 2016 race, though I hope he will make it both against Trump and Clinton. Cruz is trying to reshape the soul of the country, as Reagan once did. The strong, unadulterated message will slowly become part of the landscape, and likely prepare the ground for a strong run in 2024, or 2032. The man is young, and extremely gifted. If he does not waste his talent and does not compromise his stance, he is bound to become a permanent fixture of American politics. I leave it to others (and possibly to the electors in November) to decide if he can defeat Clinton, assuming (as we all do) she will get the nomination. But the worst of the worst would be seeing Cruz “pulling a Santorum” and starting to vomit politically correct crap to please the stupid masses who will never vote for him anyway.

Reagan did not change with the country. He made the country to change. Cruz has the talent, the time and, hopefully, the integrity.

Let’s hope he does not waver.

Up to now, it seems to me he has no intention of doing so.

  1. What’s your thoughts on Trump?

  2. Spot on. I’d be totally shocked if Cruz stops being true to his beliefs. The man seems to care not a whit whether he’s liked or not, amongst the political class. I hope and pray that he’ll be our next President.

  3. His professor at Princeton said he was one his most brilliant students and they’re still friends…(Robert george) He’s one of the best candidates we’ve ever had and I can’t believe everyone can’t see that. Trump is just playing power games. He’d be a disaster. He’s been friends with the Clintons for years.

    • I am sure Trump would bring a different, far more American, clearly manlier approach to everything compared to today’s duo, the limp wristed Muslim and the First Trannie.
      But I can’t imagine he would have a level of conviction and moral integrity comparable to Cruz, however he may succeed in portraying himself now.

  4. PS. I’m just as interested in British politics. Britain is the mother ship and its terrible what is happening in parliament right now. Canada’s even worse !

  5. Mr. M, I also like Ted Cruz. He’s a Christian, he’s super intelligent, he would be a great leader. But he has a citizenship problem. Article Two of the U.S. Constitution says a president must be a natural born citizen, a term the Supreme Court has never defined. According to a constitutional law professor at Yale Law School, natural born means having automatic citizenship at birth, not acquiring it by naturalization later on. Mr. Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother and a father with Cuban citizenship.

    If he wins the Republican nomination, democrats will file numerous lawsuits against him as a tactic to keep him tied up in courts and out of the presidency. Democrats don’t even need reasons to fight dirty, but this will give them plenty. Unfortunately, I think Ted Cruz will drop out of the race as time goes on for the sake of the party. That leaves Trump or Rubio, either of whom would be infinitely better than “the Pantsuit”.

    • Can’t imagine that to be a problem, and if it were to become a legal controversy I am sure it would be disposed of very fast.
      For the moment, please do not play for the enemy saying the problem is there.

  6. Great article! Please visit, join and share this group I edit:
    Catholics for Ted Cruz 2016

  7. Just what America needs, a radical Anti-Catholic Christian Zionist dispensationalist for president.

  8. I like Ted Cruz. But he was born in Canada. He is not a natural born citizen of the United States. This will be an issue and Donald Trump is fixing to sue on this account. This will be Ted’s undoing. IMO.

  9. I doubt it. But who would have think Putin could whip Russia into shape? Only time will tell. Personally, I am voting Trump. If you lived here and had to vote GOP every election you’d feel my pain.

    • Voting Cruz is still voting GOP, only the right one… 😉 I would not punish Cruz merely in hate of a party establishment that does not like him at all.

  10. Constitutionally eligible or not, he is a so much more a true citizen than Hussein, and clearly loves America. Here’s some very interesting information on the reasons and original intent of our founding fathers:

  11. America needs a man like Ted Cruz to remain in the Senate. Hopefully he will take Mitch McConnell’s place because the Senate needs a excellent spokes person which Ted Cruz would be great. So he and Rubio should stay in the Senate , Legislature Branch and get things into proper order. With Donald Trump in the Executive Branch. Just think what they could accomplish.

    • Doesn’t wash.
      It would work if you could trust Trump as you trust Cruz. I certainly don’t.
      Put the best one at the top. The ripple effect will be immense.
