Saluting Senator Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz emerged onto the national political scene in 2012 when he defeated Texas Lt. Gov. Dewhurst and had the backing of most of the state's Republican establishment, including then-governor Rick Perry. I can attest to that, because I personally witnessed it every step of the way. From that first upset, Cruz has proven himself to be an unyielding and vocal conservative.

Senator Ted Cruz today, in 2016, is one of the most fearless, brilliant, and articulate politicians in America. He has displayed courage, integrity, and leadership. He fights for truth, for the Constitution, and for freedom. Principled Republicans love him, the conservative base simply adores him, and the Democrats and establishment Republicans despise and fear him. He's brutally honest and a superb practitioner of the Constitution. He is unafraid to take on both the Republican and Democrat establishments. He is one of the few in our lifetime who has done precisely what he said he would do after being elected and sent by the people to take a seat of power in Washington, D.C.
"America is in crisis now. I believe in America. And if we get back to the free market principles and constitutional liberties that built this country, we can turn this country around."
There are not many in our generation who have done more to champion conservative values than Ted Cruz. Time and time again, Ted Cruz stood up in the Supreme Court of the United States and led, fought, and won.
Ted Cruz has unequivocally expressed his revulsion at Obama's lawlessness and unconstitutional executive orders. He has blasted President Obama's frequent abuse of power and his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies by executive fiat.
Cruz has acknowledged that the Islamic theocracy in Iran is a major sponsor of terrorism against America and, indeed, that "Iran has declared war on us." And he promised that if he was elected president, "under no circumstances would Iran be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons," adding, "if the ayatollah doesn't understand that, we may have to help introduce him to his seventy-two virgins."

He had a golden opportunity because he inherited most conservatives and all the Palin people. Unfortunately, he came out of the gate in his first year as senator, supporting amnesty, and then a series of huge miscalculations on H1B and TPP. Luckily Trump pulled him back from the dark side and he seems to be on the straight and narrow now. His job now is to get behind the nominee and show some loyalty. We will reciprocate in 2018, depending on what he does in the next few months.
