The Inevitability of Ted Cruz

As the Republican Primary takes shape, I feel increasingly confident in the electoral viability of Senator Ted Cruz. While those who make a fortune working for, lobbying for, contracting with, and benefiting from the Republican Establishment in Washington D.C. will remain cantankerous toward the Cruz Campaign, the Senator has a great deal working in his favor.

atedcruzMoney? Check. He’s been an erudite fundraiser, drawing the magnitude of his contributions from small donors, who are likely to vote, likely to volunteer, and likely to spread the word-of-mouth praise and adulation that inspires others to get on board a bandwagon.

Organization? Check. Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush also sport expertly crafted and experienced campaign staffs, but unlike Cruz, they have all been burdened by mistakes, by history, and by their inexperience. Senator Cruz is operating a mistake-free campaign. I’ve heard his campaign referenced to as “the little engine that could”, but that concept drastically misses the mark. What makes Senator Cruz a brilliant campaigner is not that he’s slowly chugging up the mountain, it’s that he has thousands of activists and organizers laying the track long before the train arrives.

Intellectual Support? Check. Conservative Review, Heritage Action, and dozens of other think tanks and organizations have ranked Ted Cruz as one of the most legitimate conservatives in America. Senator Cruz didn’t just become a conservative over the last couple years, nor has he crafted his conservative message in stages, piecemeal, over time. Unlike Carson and Trump who are having to spend an enormous amount of time and money manufacturing their conservative credentials, Ted Cruz has been a consistent conservative from our earliest investigations of his actions to present.

Debate Skills? Check. One of the best moments of the Republican Primary debate season came from Senator Ted Cruz.


Or how about that moment when Senator Ted Cruz took to the floor of the United States Senate and laid waste to Mitch McConnell? How about the fact that Ted Cruz hasn’t had to define himself as a conservative? From the very beginning Ted Cruz has been a Constitutional Conservative. And why are so many Libertarians like myself supporting Ted Cruz? Maybe because Ted Cruz has always been an advocate of those Constitutional Amendments this Republican Party has failed to adequately protect.

If Rand Paul or Ben Carson had the same fighting history as Senator Ted Cruz, maybe we’d be behind them. It takes more than having Ron Paul as your father to warrant support from the libertarian and constitutionalist right. It takes more than being a brilliant neurosurgeon to warrant our support. It takes more than being Donald Trump, Celebrity and Reality TV Star, to warrant our support. We want a lifelong, uncompromising, conservative who has been defending the United States Constitution for as long as we have, to represent us.

Ted Cruz hasn’t made many friends in Washington DC. The same Congressmen and Senators that have ignored us as their constituents have ignored and libeled Senator Ted Cruz.

The fact is, that Ted Cruz is the most likely nominee for the Republican Party. Donald Trump and Ben Carson are more popular, because they are better known, but as the nation gets to know Senator Ted Cruz, I have no doubt that he will ignite a fuse, a spark, a blaze, and a fire at the heart of the Republican Party. Those tired of losing, tired of watching the Republican Party legislating a Democrat Agenda, will embrace the Senator from Texas, as the next Republican Nominee for President of these United States.

Interested in joining the fight? Let me know. I’ll put you in touch with Shak Hill and Chris Shores. More importantly, I’ll put you in touch with your fellow republicans working to nominate an actual Conservative for President for the first time in decades.

    The question is will he shake
    up Washington and not be
    a lap dog to the Liberal Media
    and the 200 Liberal Republicans
    In Congress as the Republican
    Party continues to court
    so called Moderates they
    can not Win without the
    conservitives vote as for me
    I will no longer Compromise
    for the Republican Party
    that is why we are where we are
    today the Government in
    Washington is a big cancer
    and master thief can Cruise
    hold his own and not be swept
    up with the daily corruption
    from the lobbyists after
    all it is the lobbyists that are
    running thus country
    all the elected officials
    are no more than puppet
    on a string the people no longer
    matter it is the money and
    power of the lobbyists that
    have their way I do not
    believe that Ted Cruise
    is strong enough to tell
    the lobbyists NO

    He’s exactly that strong.

    Bullseye Mr. Tucker!
    Now, let us hope and pray that those currently enamored with Trump, Carson, etc. will come to realize that — with the exception of his puzzling support for more high-tech visas — Cruz is our best hope for restoring the presidency to Constitutional principles. And perhaps a bit of delay of the inevitable.
    Because a president alone can\’t beat the entrenched power of the two sham political parties with hordes of rats and roaches in every corner of the bureaucracy. He\’ll need lots of help from outside DC….

    Recent examples of Brat , Reagan lend hope that principles still matter. If Cruz is to be successful in gaining the nomination then we will have a genuine answer to that question. We will also have 2 nominees that could not have more stark contrasts in terms of philosophy and vision for the nations future.

    Moderates , (and I eschew the word itself) reined over the nomination process with McCain & Romney—we see what those results were.

    Cruz would energize the base unlike 2008 & 2012 when many voters stayed home. Nominate another moderate , the base once again sits on their hands and Hillary wins. The silver lining would be the death of the repulicrat party

    Let’s just see if Cruz can get to the top in order to be scrutinized like Hillary, Trump, and Carson have and are being? Let’s just see if Cruz turns into a sissy, and like Carson, blames his problems on the right wing owned media? Let’s see if Trump hires detectives to investigate Cruz, like he did Obama?

    Let’s open the can before we eat the beans. Who was your pick for the Democrats nominee? Wasn’t it Martin somebody?

  6. Steven Brodie Tucker

    Burn! Yes. And I’m still in shock that between Hilary, Bernie, and Martin, Martin is in last. Democrats are desperate to lose.

  7. Paul Thiel says:

    I agree with Bob that Cruz will energize the base . I just finished watching Cuvoto interview Cruz and he said the majority of his funds by far are small donations and he is at 26 mil with small grassroots donations.
    He seems so truthful and emphasized he is not in the pocket of big donors !

    His emphasis on a moderate path with Rubio, Bush or Kasich in contrast with a true conservative path like his, that so many voters will sit on their hands and stay home and not get out and vote.

    Totally agree with Sarge as well-we need someone capable of restoring Constitutional principles and bring respect to the office.

    He is worth fighting for !

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
