Ted Cruz Imagines the Presidency


"I want to ask each of you to imagine, imagine millions of courageous conservatives, all across America, rising up together to say in unison 'we demand our liberty.'"

"Imagine ... millions of people of faith all across America coming out to the polls and voting our values."

"Imagine millions of young people coming together and standing together, saying 'we will stand for liberty.'”

"...imagine in 2017 a new president signing legislation repealing every word of Obamacare."

"...imagine a simple flat tax..."

 Presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, excerpted from launch at Liberty Univ., Monday

The Secession Has Been Televised

Forget your blue state red state maps. Civil War II is but marginally being fought over territory. Rather, it is the people who hate the idea of an inclusive American experience and that more perfect union that liberal thought has wanted to make of our republic going back to the framers, just hate it, versus the people who paid attention in class.

Perhaps an oversimplification, so stipulated, mainly because many smart folks also had inherited wealth, a sense of privilege and immunity from the responsibilities of citizenship, and an engraved invitation to participate in a plutocracy to rival any that had come before. They know full well the common good they eschew.
