Cut From the Same Cloth as Our Founders: Ted Cruz


Lloyd Marcus of American Thinker posted an article today. The first paragraph got me thinking:
As the New Hampshire primary fast approaches, I wish to remind voters that our next commander-in-chief must be of the highest character, cut from the rare cloth of our founders.
He was talking about Ted Cruz, and as I pondered this I began to realize that Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Mike Lee are both cut from the cloth of the Founding Fathers of our nation. We have a chance now, certainly our last chance, to pull America back from the brink and it will take those men and women cut from the same cloth of our founding generation.

Barack Obama has spent the last seven plus years trying to turn us into a socialist nation. We have fought back, building up the strength of the states so that we can stop him. Because he couldn't get things past Congress he decided to legislate with Executive Orders. But what is done by the executive pen can be promptly undone by the same executive pen. His executive overreach is the subject of many lawsuits right now, and the target of every GOP contender for president.

Ted Cruz is a man who is indeed cut from the same cloth of the Founding Fathers. He is strong on immigration, on restoring the U.S. Constitution, on 2nd Amendment rights, securing the border, protecting America, religious liberty, standing with Israel, family and marriage, the economy and reigning in Washington, D.C. And his flat tax plan is simply brilliant. While he is cut from the same cloth of James Madison, he also puts me in mind of the fiery Patrick Henry.

Our Founding Fathers created a republic, one with a smaller federal government, strong states' powers (10th Amendment), and the rest residing in the We the People. You see, America, we are the ones who can decide the future of our nation. Socialism and communism do not work, they have never worked. As Margaret Thatcher said, "eventually you will run out of other people's money".

The Grand Experiment that is America is one unique to the world. In America we know that our rights come from God, and the Founding Fathers recognized that. This republic they gave us was designed after great research, debate and arguing at the original constitutional Congress. 

Ted Cruz is a constitutional conservative, memorizing and defending the U.S. Constitution in high school:
"When he was 15, Ted Cruz was one of five Houston kids selected by the Free Enterprise Institute to tour the country and speak about the Constitution. Prior to graduating high school, Ted had delivered 80 speeches on such topics as economics, the Austrian economist von Mises, and the importance and meaning of the Constitution." The Blaze
He went on to Princeton to gain his undergraduate degree, and then on to Harvard for his law degree. Of his student, liberal lion professor Alan Dershowitz said,
“One of the sharpest students I had, in terms of analytic skills. I’ve had 10,000 students over my 50 years at Harvard. He has to qualify among the brightest of the students. Deeply principled. He thinks he’s doing the right thing. I saw that years ago when he was a student. He was not a compromiser. He was not somebody who tried to make friends by accepting what was then the political correctness of the day.” The Blaze
Being a liberal, Dershowitz could only say, "He thinks he's doing the right thing." Well, I'm here to tell you that Ted Cruz is doing the right thing. Conservative principles produce prosperity, liberal principles do not. Let me give you an example, with Ronald Reagan's conservative policies we had two decades of prosperity before Democrats got in there and destroyed it again. Over and over, a strong conservative president can turn things around, producing decades of prosperity. That is why we need Ted Cruz as Commander-in-Chief, as the next president of the United States of America. He is strong on the issues, policies and understands, brilliantly, how to pull us back from the brink of socialism and economic disaster.

Yes, I am on Utah's team for Ted Cruz. And yes, from the day Ted Cruz announced his presidential candidacy at Liberty University I was in his camp. But as I did with Senator Mike Lee, I researched Ted Cruz fully and realized he walked the walk and talked the talk of a true constitutional conservative.

So I ask America to please support him and recognize with Ted Cruz we can regain prosperity in America again. America can be strong again, and can regain our status as a world super power. Democrats hate that. But Republicans understand that without a strong America the world burns.

Senator Ted Cruz is the last chance America has ... we either pull back from the brink of socialism with Senator Cruz, or we fall and life will get much, much worse. As I said, socialism and communism flat don't work.
