Go Ted Cruz!
Ted Cruz, freshman senator from Texas is, as I write, conducting a filibuster on the Senate floor to stop Obamacare in the Senate as Republicans in the House voted to do this past Friday. I'm proud to say I voted for Ted Cruz and the more he conducts himself as a senator, boldly and fearlessly standing up for conservative principles, the happier I am that I cast my ballot for him.
Yes, I've complained about conservatives relying too much on politics to solve problems and defeat the left. However, there are times when political action is needed, and when those times come we on the right need a leader like Ted Cruz is emerging to be. In order to stand up for what he believes is right, Senator Cruz is having to stand against many in his own party--shame on them!--as well as those on the left, and he has the cojones to do it.
This is just what I wanted and needed to see. When politics is called for conservatives have had a pronounced tendency to cower, hem and haw, and eventually cave in to the left. Not tonight. Tonight, one conservative is standing Texas strong for the principles he believes in, principles he promised voters he'd stand for. That conservative is Ted Cruz, a total breath of bold and fearless fresh air. Ted Cruz, my senator. He's the man!!!!
