Earlier today Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz came to Virginia to address a small group of Republican activists from around the state. In an informal setting, where no question was off limits, Cruz addressed a very wide variety of topics. He never stumbled, never faltered, and proved to everyone that his conservative credentials run deep and wide.
Cruz began by comparing the current time to the late 1970’s when and things were falling apart around the world and domestically, thanks to a feckless President Carter. Today we are on a precipice much like we were then. The nation turned to Ronald Reagan and the Reagan Revolution begin to turn things around for country and the rest of the world. That’s exactly where we are now. We are approaching that kind of Revolution today. Senator Cruz is a conservative who can lead that Revolution.
Senator Cruz talked a great deal about all the burdensome regulations we have in our country today. He said a good bumper sticker for Republicans would be “Republicans—We Waste Less”. He would change that! He will shrink the entire body of government and he will put people in place who share that vision.
He went on to talk foreign policy and the fact that neither President Obama or Hillary Clinton will even say the words “Radical Islamic Terrorists”! Obama’s greatest failure has been in protecting our national security. Our national security should define our foreign policy and it hasn’t. A Cruz President will destroy ISIS and protect the US. We can do that with massive airstrikes.
Three things make for a winning campaign, a strong message, grassroots’ support and money. Cruz has all three. Cruz grassroots supporters have gathered 10,000 signatures in Virginia, twice the number required. He has district coordinators in every district of all the states that vote on or before March 15. Grassroots support for Cruz is growing. At a Freedom Works conference in Florida (the home of candidates Bush and Rubio) their straw poll showed Cruz far ahead of the other candidates. He won with 42% of the vote. Carson was second with 12% and all other candidates were in the single digits. A similar thing happened in the Value Voter’s poll. Cruz won with 35% of the voted followed by Carson with 18%. Trump was in single digits in both polls.
A President Cruz would do away with the Department of Education and Common Core and send that money back to the states. Of all government agencies, Cruz considers the EPA to be the most abusive. Too many regulations! Cruz considers Obama to be the most lawless President in our history.
Two things Cruz would do immediately as President:
“Repeal every single word of Obamacare” and
“Abolish the IRS and establish flat tax that would destroy the power of Washington.”
Sounds good to me! Everything Cruz said sounded good to me. It would be difficult to be a conservative and not agree with and support Ted Cruz for President.
