A Die Hard Ted Cruz Fan…


This kind of chronicles my personal journey from being a Ted Cruz supporter to, well, not being so much of one, to being a bit angry at the gentleman.

Whatever your disdain of Donald Trump, think of it this way:  We’re never going to get 100% of what we want.  That’s just life.  But if President Trump does just two or three of the things he proposes, like a border wall, deporting illegal immigrants, fair trade deals and rebuilding the military, it will go a long way in dismantling the horror of eight years of the Obama Administration.

I was a die hard Ted Cruz fan until I could no longer deny that, in the light of day, he was just another ambitious politician with designs on the White House.  He used my faith and my values to co-opt a cultivated Consistent Conservative sham and I am angry at him.  You bet I am.

    I watched nearly all of the 2013 Senate immigration bill mark-up that lasted 5 days. Cruz was hardly there, although he says repeatedly he “stood shoulder to shoulder with Jeff Sessions to fight the amnesty.”

    I remember it differently. While Sen Sessions submitted 49 amendments to improve the terrible bill, Cruz wrote only 5, and one of those was to increase the number of H-1b tech visas by 500 percent.

      If you don’t understand what he did, you won’t understand at all.

      “Cruz has certainly been consistent in his opposition to a path to citizenship for those now living in the country illegally. And he now says definitely that he also would not support legalization of those immigrants. And as we said earlier, we’ll leave it up to you to decide if he once supported legalization as a political compromise, and now disavows it, or if he was merely employing a legislative ploy to expose the motivations of his opponents.”
