"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Cruz points out that every single potential candidate will claim to be conservative at CPAC and on the campaign trail in 2016, but voters need to demand proof from the candidates that they’ll actually deliver.
“How do we as conservatives distinguish when we’ve got a whole bunch of candidates sounding good and saying good things?” Cruz said. “We both know a whole lot of politicians have demonstrated they’ll say one thing and do another. The answer is I believe we as Republican primary voters need to ask every candidate who shows up in front of us that you say you believe in these principles, but show me.” . . . . What have you accomplished? As Scripture says, you shall know them by their fruits. So if a candidate says they oppose Obamacare, we should ask show me where you stood up and fought against it.
If a candidate says they oppose the debt ceiling and the debt that’s crushing our kids and grandkids, we should ask show me where you’ve stood up to stop it. If a candidate says they support the First Amendment or free speech or liberty, if a candidate says they support the Second Amendment—the right to keep and bear arms—we should say show me where you’ve stood up and fought to protect them. If a candidate says they oppose President Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional executive amnesty, we should say show me where you’ve stood up and fought it. If a candidate says they oppose Common Core, we should say show me where you’ve stood up and fought against it. If a candidate says they stand with the Nation of Israel, if a candidate says they will oppose and stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapon capabilities, we should say show me where you’ve stood and fought. That’s how we distinguish. here
Consistency is the core of principled person, and Sen. Ted Cruz is one man who’s proved his consistency. He is a man of principle, which our Founders said was vital if we were to retain our (former) Constitutional Republic and the reason the nation is in a Socialist default setting, control by tyrants.
We’ve watched as the Obama regime has shredded the Constitution and Law since 2008. He’s now put the previously free Internet, under the control of Federal government dictators with the goal of increasing taxes and controlling content. He threatens Border Agents against ‘doing their job’ and tells them they put follow his personal orders, which is to ignore illegals and their criminal behavior. All for the purpose of bring in more “future Democrat voters”, which they will before, this tyrannical King Obama leaves office.
He continues to cut our military putting America in greater and greater danger, as he ignores the true islamo-nazi’s threatening Americans and passes illegals laws to punishes Christians and their moral beliefs. He finds new ways to ignore our Constitutional rights of “life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness” . . . and owning guns, as well as the bullets.
Any principled politician, would not do these things. A man or woman of good moral character would follow the law and Constitution, to which they swore an oath. Democrats DO NOT and have not for many decades. Many current Republicans are Democrats in disguise and CINO’s (conservatives in name only).
But Obama’s ignoring of the Constitution has leaped to new heights. Does he “love” American? Of course not. You don’t radical deconstruction and change, what you ‘love’.
One of the few hopes we have is to elect a principled Conservatives as President who will force lazy, Liberal Republicans and even worse corrupt, Socialist Democrats , to ‘do the right thing’.
We must not just listen to what the politicians say, but be aware of what they have said and have done. Non Conservatives, the phony Establishment people, must be forced out of office. I don’t want our children, grandchildren, all LEGAL future Americans to live under the heavy hand of a Federal government, controlled by ‘insiders’, the “Donor Class”, Wall Street cronies, George Soros and capitalist cronies, who’s only goal is to further fund the Dictator politicians we have in office.
