Why I’m Supporting Ted Cruz for President… and Why You Should Too

Whilst the last members were signing it Doctor Franklin looking towards the President's Chair, at the back of which a rising sun happened to be painted, observed to a few members near him, that Painters had found it difficult to distinguish in their art a rising from a setting sun. “I have,” said he, “often and often in the course of the Session, and the vicissitudes of my hopes and fears as to its issue, looked at that behind the President without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting: But now at length I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting Sun.” -- Benjamin Franklin at the signing of the United States Constitution, Journal of the Constitutional Convention (17 September 1787) (from here) (picture from here)

Yesterday I got an email from Ken Cuccinelli. He has endorsed Senator Ted Cruz for President. I have been considering the Republican field, and I had decided to support either Cruz or Ben Carson. I have been surprised by Donald Trump‘s performance. He has turned out to be a far stronger candidate than anyone expected. However, of the three, only Cruz is a life-long committed Conservative. Only Cruz has record that says he will fight and knows how to fight for Conservative political values. So I had planned to write a post extolling Cruz’s virtues. However, since Cuccinelli writes better than I do……

Cuccinelli CompassMy Fellow Virginians,

I am one of countless Republicans exasperated with how the Washington Republican “leadership” has failed to even try to advance our basic principles, to say nothing how they continue to violate their own campaign promises.  Like many others, I believe Washington is a politically incestuous den of crony government – and that’s bi-partisan.  We have many challenges as a country, but we will never confront most of those challenges unless we elect a President who is willing to swim against the current of corruption of Washington.

While many Presidential candidates are trying to make the case that they won’t be captured by Washington, only Senator Ted Cruz has the consistent track record to prove it.  Does that make him appear to not get along with the Washington leadership?  Yes.  Does the leadership dislike him?  Yes.  In the mainstream media, this conflict is portrayed as a bad thing.  I think it’s a good thing.  The folks that don’t like Senator Cruz in Washington don’t like him because he’s an unapologetic Constitutional Conservative that doesn’t back down.  I can live with that… in fact, I can get pretty excited about that!

The intensity of the Republican grassroots’ anger at the GOP leadership is THE major reason that Donald Trump continues to perform well in polling.  It was also part of the successful launch of Dr. Ben Carson.  That anger isn’t just a reaction to President Obama’s destructive policies; it is a reaction to the Republican leadership’s unwillingness to lead like Republicans.  While I respect Donald Trump and Ben Carson, only Ted Cruz has had a consistent record (after getting elected) of challenging the Republican leadership and President Obama’s disastrous policies.  Lots of people talk about fighting Washington, Senator Cruz has done it.

On foreign policy, the GOP seems to have three groups: the “neocons” on one end, the “Paulites” on the other end, and then a group in the middle.  Most of the GOP candidates are neocons.  I used to be a neocon too… until I figured out that neocon polices don’t work and cost far too much in lives and treasure.  I would also note that the neocons are the most willing to “conveniently” read the constitution in ways that dramatically tip the balance between liberty and security…away from liberty.  This tendency is particularly true with regard to their willingness to trample the Fourth Amendment (requiring government to get a warrant based on probable cause to search or seize your property).

I have come to believe that we cannot have a knee-jerk reaction to enter every armed conflict, but should preserve our strength and political capital to be aggressive where it matters most to American interests.  Examples poor foreign policy actions include working to remove Muammar Gaddafi in Libya (in 2011) and Bashar Assad in Syria (which has not yet occurred).  Although they may be loathsome human beings, our efforts to remove national leaders we don’t like in the Middle East often brings much more catastrophic circumstances with regard to America’s security, as we have seen in Libya where ISIS and Al Qaeda have greatly grown in strength since 2011.

Over the last 15 years, America has spent trillions of dollars that we don’t have on foreign policy ventures, most of which have proven bad investments.  We need a President frugal enough to actually count the monetary cost our foreign policy.  Ted Cruz is in the middle group of Republicans on foreign policy issues.  While it may be rousing to hear emotional, warlike rhetoric from some candidates, I believe such strategies are proven failures and I want my next President to break the cycle of foreign policy failures of the current and past Presidents.

One of the reasons the GOP establishment and big corporate interests dislike Ted Cruz is because he has fought amnesty in immigration.  The threat of terrorism and the debilitating drain on our resources from unfettered immigration show clearly that we must have a President who will stand strong for American sovereignty on immigration and against the big corporate interests that control the congressional leadership of both parties.

Ted Cruz’s consistent resistance to the growth of Washington power has also extended to the budget.  The Fed just raised interest rates ¼ of 1%.  That equates to almost $50 billion more dollars of interest payments on our national debt every year.  And the Fed has signaled that it expects a full 1% increase through 2016.  That means that our nearly $20 trillion national debt will squeeze out almost $200 billion of money from our national budget in 2017 just to pay interest on the debt!  Wow, that’s a big number!

Obama has already eviscerated our military.  The increased debt payments will make it much, much harder to find the money we need to repair Obama’s damage to our military.  Among the top Presidential candidates, only Ted Cruz has shown the commitment to cutting the federal budget in the aggressive way necessary to attack our federal debt.  That debt is one of the greatest threats to our children’s future that the next President will face.

One way Ted Cruz has demonstrated his commitment to conservative principles is by the type of people he has hired in his Senate office.  He believes ‘personnel is policy.’ Many of the people Senator Cruz hired for his Senate office came out of former Senator Jim DeMint’s staff.  Compare his hiring history to others in the top tier of the nomination contest and it’s no contest.  This is part of Cruz’s consistent, conservative track record.  He will bring in to his administration dedicated, patriotic conservatives to help shrink the power of government in our lives and in our economy.

And while I could go on to other reasons why Ted Cruz should be our next President, I will end with this:  Ted Cruz has shown – starting long before he ever ran for the U.S. Senate – that he is committed to the first principles of this country.  He is a full spectrum conservative who knows and has fought to protect our Constitution.  He doesn’t protect the parts of the Constitution he likes, and he doesn’t protect the Constitution only when it’s convenient.  Ted Cruz fights for our whole Constitution – all the time.  This commitment to our Constitution will be reflected in how he uses the executive power of the President and the judges he nominates.

Ted Cruz has been a consistent, full-spectrum conservative who has a strong track record of fighting for -and bleeding for – our first principles.  Many candidates “talk conservative” during campaigns, but their actions don’t match their campaign rhetoric.  No other candidate can match Senator Ted Cruz’s strong conservative track record.

America is at a tipping point.  It is not enough for us to get a Republican President in 2016 – someone who will simply preside over the decline of America.  We need a Republican President who will undo the damage done by President Obama and who will take on his own party leadership to finally reign in the power and reckless spending of Washington.

That candidate is Senator Ted Cruz.

For liberty,

Ken Cuccinelli, II

Here is the same endorsement on Cuccinelli’s facebook page => https://www.facebook.com/KenCuccinelli/posts/10153494942398692. If you are on facebook and want to indicate your approval, please do so.

Note: If we Conservatives want a Conservative in the White House, we have to get out and support our guy. Cruz is that guy.

Note: If we Conservatives want an effective Conservative in the White, we have to do something about the Liberal Democrats and the Big Spending RINOs in Congress. We must run candidates against them, and we must relentlessly replace any of our candidates who fail to deliver on their promises. In particular, we must insist that they cut Federal spending.

Note: If we Conservatives want to save our republic — to save our country for the sake of our children and grandchildren — we cannot give up. Failure is not an acceptable option.

We must constantly keep in our minds what Ronald Reagan once said.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. — Ronald Reagan (from here)

Too few of us have fought for our freedom. With no effort on our part, we gained our freedom from our parents just as they gained it from their parents. Too few of us have protected our freedom. Instead, we have protected our “rights,” and too few of us have yet to discern the difference between our rights and our privileges.

What is the difference between a right and a privilege? Too few of us care. Perhaps that is why too few of us have handed onto our children the true meaning of freedom. Perhaps that is why we now risk spending our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States when men were free.

    1. I endorsed Ted Cruz for president almost two years ago. He will be an excellent president, although opposed by the media, the establishment Republicans, the Democrats, and perhaps most damagingly by the entrenched federal executive bureaucracy.

      Even appointing conservatives to head such bureaucracies does not solve the problem. When George W. Bush appointed Condoleeza Rice as Secretary of State, it thrust her into a situation where nearly her entire organization despised her. It was tough to make any headway at all in such a poisonous environment.

      The long-term solution is an Article V “convention to propose amendments” as the Constitution puts it. At this moment, with so many state legislatures in Republican (and to a lesser extent, conservative) control, we at least have a shot here.

  1. Cruz is a rare breed in politics.

    He is a statesman, a giant among his piers.

    A statesman understands, teaches and implements “the Laws of Nature” as they pertain to the practical application of politics, economics, ethics and culture (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness).

    Donald Trump, though an American patriot is an expert at making money. That makes him just like every two bit politician who now inhabits the Washington, DC governing establishment.

    Trump will grow the government just as he has always endeavored to grow every enterprise he was ever involved with.

    Why? Because that is what Donald Trump does.

    It would be a simple yet profound miracle if a statesman like Ted Cruz was elected President of the United States at this time.

    That’s because the American Republic, as originally founded, has been dead for nearly a century and President Obama has taken the rotting carcass and driven a stake through its heart.

    1. I certainly agree with your description of Ted Cruz, though I would lean more toward “fighter” than “statesman” as his primary recommending attribute.

      However, I urge you to reconsider your characterization of Trump. Building a business to make a profit is almost exactly the opposite of building a bureaucracy to gain power at the taxpayers’ expense. To a certain extent, Trump has benefited from crony capitalism (it is rank at the levels he deals with), but in the main his businesses have generally succeeded because they serve the customer.

      I do not think that Donald Trump would be a good or appropriate president of the United States, though in a choice between him and Hillary Clinton, I will certainly vote for him. But his inclinations are not likely to be as you described. And he may in fact be well-equipped to do some good, though there’s a “wild ass warrior” aspect to Trump that bothers me whereas his business background does not.

      Best wishes.

  2. Well said. Mr. Cruz is one of my Senators. I would vote for him in a heart beat and a true consistent constitutional conservative. He would make an amazing President. Be blessed. God is with you.

    Thank you for your comments and for your support of Ted Cruz.

    I think one of the strongest reasons to support Cruz is the way he is running for president. Instead of condemning his opponents, he offers a vision for America. That is similar to Donald Trump, who for the most part is a counter-puncher.

    After the primaries, we must unite, help whoever wins the nomination take his campaign and his vision to America, and win the presidency. I think that will be far easier and far more rewarding if Cruz wins.


  4. Tom, thanks as always for the good information. If not for writers like you, I simply would keep dwelling in my vacuum cluelessly. Still not sure what I am doing this election time, but the information is quite useful. As always, thanks for your efforts.

      Thanks for the comment and the compliment.

      Don’t wait too long to decide. One of the things that kills Conservatives is that we don’t decide and back our candidates soon enough. Thus, the RINOs have usually seized the nomination before we have even gotten started.


  5. And his words at the “In Defense of Christians” summit? Ken Cuccinelli is a traitor to his Faith for supporting a man who holds the most ancient Christian churches in contempt for not conforming to his Zionist principles.





    1. @mastersamwise, who wrote:

      What a contemptible assertion.

      Ted Cruz went to speak in defense of people being slaughtered in the Middle East because of their religion. In the room were some who were okay with Christians being allowed to live, but who hated the Jews. Ted Cruz uttered this true statement, and incurred their ire:

      Our purpose here tonight is to highlight a terrible injustice. A humanitarian crisis. Christians, are being systematically exterminated. In 1948, Jews throughout the Middle East faced murder and extermination and fled to the nation of Israel. And today, Christians have no greater ally than the Jewish state.

      When he said that, some of those “save us but let’s go kill the Jews” people in the room began booing. The entire balance of the speech was quite short:

      Let me say this, those who hate Israel, hates America. And those who hate Jews, hate Christians. And if this room will not recognize that, then my heart weeps, that the men and women here will not stand in solidarity with Jews and Christians alike who are persecuted by radicals [applause] who seek to — . If you hate the Jewish people you are not reflecting the teachings of Christ [applause]. And the very same people who persecute and murder Christians right now, who crucify Christians and behead Children are the very same people who target and murder Jews for their faith for the very same reason. [applause, murmering, objections]. I will say this. I am saddened [shouting].

      [IDC President Toufic Baaklini comes out to urge respect]

      I will say this, I am saddened, to see that some here, not all but some here, are so consumed with hate [no, boos], that they cannot enjoy [unintelligible, boos]. I will say this, if you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you. Thank you, and God bless. [boos]

      Cruz tried to reason with them, but quickly gave up to avoid a shouting match with Jew-haters inappropriate for the setting.

      Ted Cruz was there in support of religious tolerance and religious liberty. His enemies are bigots who call anyone who thinks that Israel should be allowed to exist “Zionists.”

      You have come to the wrong place to preach Jew-hatred. And you are an odd duck indeed to call almost everyone writing here “a traitor to his faith.” Because, of course, they clearly support Ted Cruz — the unpardonable sin (to your mind) that you accuse Ken Cuccinelli of.

      Your condemnation excludes me — I am a life-long non-theist, so my strong support of Ted Cruz cannot betray any faith. And it also omits you of course and the other occasional hate-filled leftists here to troll Citizen Tom and his commenters, but in so doing expose your paucity of respect for liberty, tolerance, and free enterprise.

      1. Actually, according to the transcripts, Cruz was praised for the first bit of his speech but only got booed once he started claiming that the secular state of Israel–when 67% of your nation doesn’t believe in Judaism, you lose the right to call yourself a Jewish nation in the religious sense–was their friend. Cruz was speaking to people who saw the house of Patriarch Twal of Jerusalem bulldozed by the Israeli government for land development and without his consent. This is the same nation state that refuses to take in Christian refugees. This is the same nation state that, when it encountered innocent Arab Christians, rounded them up and sent them to Gaza for being Arab.

        Why was it that every other speaker there emphatically denied the allegations of antisemitism? Probably because it was a narrative invented by the sycophants in the conservative media. No one in that room believed Israel shouldn’t have been allowed to exist. No one also believed the lie that Israel has been the greatest ally of Christians. That is so manifestly false, you discredit yourself for supporting such outlandish claims.

        When Cruz accused them of hate, they said no. They don’t hate Israel. They just know they aren’t friends. When the Israelis forbid Christians from visiting their holy sites if they happen to be Arabs and especially if they are Palestinian.

        Cruz was invited there to lend his support to an issue and used it to advance his personal Zionist views. They are his views and he is entitled to them. But they are not shared by everyone because their own personal experience tells them otherwise. To turn around and accuse them of antisemitism simply because they never felt the benefits of Israeli beneficence that Cruz expounds is grossly ignorant. In fact, when he compared the sufferings of Jews and Christians as being the same, the room agreed. It was when he conflated Christianity to loving a secular nation state that never showed them the kindness Cruz expounds that naturally they disagreed. They applauded when he said hatred of the Jews was inconsistent with Christian values, they agreed. When he conflated loving America to loving Israel, naturally they objected.

        “And you are an odd duck indeed to call almost everyone writing here “a traitor to his faith.” Actually, I only called Cuccinelli a traitor to his faith so I guess you got your obligatory (and possibly deliberate) misconstruing of my words to fit your narrative in. He considers the tenants of American conservatism more important than the tenants of his own faith. See, in the Catholic Church, you don’t abrogate doctrine to fit your personal lifestyle. It is not an unpardonable sin but it is certainly a sin.

        Further, the articles I posted were all from staunchly conservative supporters of Israel. All of them rightly condemn Cruz for what was political grandstanding and wildly inappropriate. So are these people “occasional hate-filled leftists” too?

        Perhaps the non-theist aspect of your ideology is the divergence Keith. I hold my theological principles more dearly than those invented by some men in powdered wigs four centuries ago. I hold the things of this world in contempt while you bitterly hang onto every grain of sand that falls through your fingers. I understand that this nation, nice though it is, is not the most important thing in my life, the life of the world, or all human history and its preservation will ultimately not affect human happiness except insofar as it is conducive to it.

        See, you scream and yell that I am a liberal but even you must realize how silly that sounds. What liberal reviles government, the state, the “great society?” What liberal opposes abortion and birth control, euthanasia and gay marriage? What liberal is critical of the vices of the age? What liberal offers the admonishments of God as the solution to human suffering? You call me liberal because you have no other word to describe someone so wholly out of your calculation. I am not motivated by liberal ideas or liberal morals. It must bother you that you can never really ascribe liberal principles to me because my principles are not of this world.

        Go in peace Keith. I hope you realize the futility of your struggle. In the end, all is vanity. In the end, there is one thing that can alleviate the pain of this world. It does not come from words on a piece of vellum, but from the living breathing Word that permeates all things and brings all minds to understanding that there is one good in life and it cannot be found here.

          You called Ken Cuccinelli a traitor to his faith for one stated reason: He supports Ted Cruz.

          Citizen Tom and most others here share the same faith, and also support Ted Cruz. You knew that when you wrote your “traitor” statement. You thereby spread that label to all of them.

          How many times have you said even in this one post that I called you a “liberal”? Citizen Tom used the word above.

          I rarely use that word to describe leftist totalitarian progressive statists, as liberal used to have a noble meaning, still captured in the phrase “classical liberal.” Classical liberal you certainly are not. Progressive, statist, totalitarian, leftist, “control your lives for your own good” — yes, you’ve amply demonstrated all of that. But using your definition of liberal:

          What liberal reviles government, the state, the “great society?”

          Barack Obama, for example, and many others, so long as the government being discussed is American.

          What liberal opposes abortion and birth control, euthanasia and gay marriage?

          Barack Obama during the 2008 election cycle, until it suited him to change his mind to keep power.

          You hold the things of this world in contempt if they have been earned or freely chosen by others, and would take them away to serve your “not of this world” principles. You dress this up in flowery language and grotesque misreadings of philosophy, but your aim has always been clear: You consider liberty too dangerous for the common man.

          You didn’t have to misread Pope Francis too much (except in your lame defense of him), as he’s right with you.

        2. Are all here Catholics? That is Cuccinelli’s faith and mine. And he betrays it. He subsitutes the teachings of Holy Mother Church for the teachings of earthly princes. I don’t expect you to understand that. To put it another way, he is to the Catholic Church what a RINO is to the GOP. So no, I didn’t extend it to all here and I would suggest, for your own safety Keith, never to conflate Catholicism with Christianity without first having a clear idea of the sentiments of the room; say that to Carson or Cruz–in private of course since they need votes–and they will strongly disagree. I still wonder why you persist in ascribing things to me I never said. Don’t you know it is hard for you to kick against the goad?

          Forgive me then. I hold leftist and liberal to be synonymous since all of them are left from me. Everything is left when you ascend upwards and indeed, that is my direction since ladders go neither left or right.

          Do I desire to rule men’s lives? Certainly not. Do I desire another to do it. Certainly. Tom would be a liar if he didn’t say the same. Listen Keith; for me, there is one ruler, one state, and one government. It is not of this world and the governments of this world must submit to it. It is the everlasting government of Christ. It governs all things, including our very souls. Our thoughts, our wills, our desires are all to be governed by that government of the Most High. But this government begins right now. He is governing now for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. Keith, I could care less about who believes in what thing about liberty because in the end, there is one liberty, one freedom. It does not consist in the wanton excise of the will but the rational direction of that will towards the good which made himself manifest for all the world.

          Inspired by this, mankind is taken to heights unthinkable by human means. The greatest maxims our reason can attain are those regarding virtue. But these virtues, though great, lead to an imperfect conception of the good. For the perfection necessary for man to truly be himself, he must direct himself to the highest good, the origin of all goodness.

          This direction leads one to several truths. First, that man was given care and dominion over all the earth. This dominion is to reflect the same dominion God has over man and all creation. It is a dominion of love, not of exploitation or utility. Thus, our use of the fruits of the earth must be inspired by this principle. The Church, as the Pope said, does not seek to settle all questions, but when faced with even imperfect evidence of abuse of the dominion granted to all mankind, all mankind must reflect in himself–from the greatest nation to lowest person–how he expresses his dominion.

          What seems to be another disconnect is that you do not believe in universal moral imperatives. Everything must be done solely by the individual. In contrast, I believe there are moral principles that transcend and permeate all human interaction from the personal to the national level. The call to love one’s neighbor was never intended to be restricted to mere personal interactions but inspire any human action whatsoever. I also believe in the supremacy of moral imperatives. For example, the love of neighbor must always be deemed a higher priority than self-preservation. We disagree philosophically Keith, but it is a massive misnomer to lump me with movements I consider heretical and frankly blasphemy.


        3. @mastersamwise

          I think you are patting yourself on the back to much. Our arms were not made to work that way without some awkwardness. Anyway, I second Keith’s remarks. I don’t think what Cruz said should irked anyone that much. Is Israel the perfect ally? No. There is an old adage. States don’t have friends; they have interests. That said, I think the people of the United States share similar values, and I have no problem with an American politician affirming his commitment to support Israel against the very same enemies who are killing Christians.


          Thanks for your comments.


        4. You don’t think it should have irked them because you are looking at the issue from the perspective of an America. Israel is a great ally of America, I will agree. So do the commentators whose articles I posted. All said, from the Patriarch that left the summit in disgust to the organizer who tried to get the people under control, that Israel is a great ally of America and the Jews suffered much the same genocide and are our fathers in Faith.

          Israel has never been an ally to the Arab Christians. The Palestinian Arab Christians get no protection from Hamas and Hezbollah as they languish in the Gaza Strip. They do not get to see their holy sites and have to watch Israelis bulldoze the home of their Patriarch and burn their churches.

          I do not disagree that Israel is an ally of America; neither did anyone at that summit. But they have not been an ally to a people oppressed at all sides. They certainly have done nothing to help the Christian refugees or counter Daesh in a meaningful way. They have their interests and none of those interests are helping Christians. That was the whole point of the ire against Cruz. It wasn’t antisemitism; it was recalling the legitimate grievances they have mutely suffered for a long time at the hands of those Cruz wanted to prop up as their ally.

          So again, Israel is a friend of America; Israel has not been a friend to Arab Christians.
