On Ted Cruz And The Restoration Of The Republic

29 April 2016 @ 10:59

You hear comments like this rather frequently these days:

Even if Cruz is the Savior, he’s too little way too late. And he’s just another pandering, manipulative pol, anyway.

Mr. Cruz has never – unlike a certain New York Megalomaniac or a particular Red Diaper Spoiled Brat – proclaimed himself to be The American Messiah. Mr. Cruz is not so shallow or Narcissistic to believe he can be Our Political Jesus.

He believes that he can put together a group of conservatives, backed by enough of the Sovereign People, to begin the Restoration of the national government.

Mr. Cruz is mistaken, because the central government is so corrupted by Leftism that it is terminal. It’s too far gone to fix; there’s not enough flesh left on it to restore to a Normal appearance.

I believe any hope we have of achieving a Restoration of our Freedom and Ordered Liberty lies in the Several States, if we can work together and take over a few of them and then stage a Rebellion against the National Despotism [and the attendant State Despotisms], with the ultimate goal of reconstituting The Constitution down the long road ahead.

However, I believe Mr. Cruz will be able – has what it takes, has The Right Stuff – to reconstitute the effectiveness of our National Security, so that we can get about our business on the State Level with less concern for foreign invasions of all kinds. Also: while he will not be able to save the Federal Patient, he will be able to move it a bit out of the way of our efforts domestically.

Throughout his public career, Edward Cruz has proven he is the opposite of a ‘pandering, manipulative pol’. If you honestly believe he is one, then you have either been imbibing the Leftist Kool-Aid or binge-eating Trump Steaks – or both – and you’ve rendered yourself philosophically Morbidly-Obese.

Time is running out.

We must decide whether we will fight against Tyranny or prepare ourselves to be locked into the cold chains of Despotism.

Non serviam.
Aut mori aut liberos vivere.

(I will not be a slave.
I will either live free or die.)

    As a Reagan Conservative one would expect that I would be a supporter of Ted Cruz. I agree with him almost 100% of the time on the issues. But, I am not supporting him. I am a supporting Donald Trump.
    I believe we have one last chance to fix the federal government, then it will be terminal. Donald Trump has the strength of personality and the desire to attack the corruption with a full on assault. Ted Cruz cannot do that.
    There are three things we HAVE to get right this time, or we are lost. Those three things are immigration, The Supreme Court, and corruption. None of the other issues really matter at this point because without those three things being saved, all the other issues are doomed to eventual failure.
    It is said about Donald Trump that he is not a Conservative. It is more accurate to say that he is not an ideologue, he is a pragmatism. When he goes in to try and save a failed business – and certainly the US government is that – he looks at the tools available to him and picks the ones he thinks will work. In the case of the US government, the tools he has chosen and thinks will work are, for the most part, conservative.

    I understand why you will vote for Ted Cruz. But, if Donald Trump becomes the nominee, would you please consider what I have said and support him. I will certainly support Ted Cruz is he is the nominee.

    Respectfully,
    Mandy Adams

      Mandy, I think that you underestimate Trump’s ability or even his WILL to FIX anything. Trump is first of all for Trump. Look, at my age of 67, reading about Trump a good number of those years, I do not trust Trump to do anything more than line the pockets of himself and his buddies…Boehner, McConnell, et al. He is bombastic and says a lot of things, but his Make America Great again cannot work. Remember Hope & Change? We have changed as a people, and the very ones who mostly are giving him his popularity right now expect something from him, and not freedom. I can assure you of that. Trump has walked back EVERY SINGLE CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLE that he originally elicited. He will certainly give us a little fluff up front, but before his first year is out there will be remorse. He is Obama is Hillary, etc. He is a democrat at heart and soul. If you want to save the republic, we need to change individually.

      He is not even a pragmatist, as you argue. That is a great sound bite to explain why he is not conservative, but he will not do much good honestly. The end game for Trump will always be Trump, like it was for Clinton and Obama. Like it is for McConnell, Reid, Pelosi and Boehner…personal advantage. These guys can all be bought off with enough lobbying money because they have no moral roots to do the right thing. That is the nature of man. Oh, they’ll tell the public, like McConnell or Boehner..”we tried, but the democrats would not let us…” or something ridiculous. Trump IS one of them. He’ll continue to be one of them. Nothing in DC will change, except that the complete ruination of the middle class will be completed.

        Trump has never been a Democrat. Even though I voted for Trump in an early primary, I’m ambivalent about who gets the nomination because we’re screwed no matter what.

        Before the primaries started, I was seriously considering Cruz, but his votes on TPP and the expansion of the H1b visa program soured me on him. In addition, his wife, Heidi, works for Goldman Sachs, one of the biggest lobbiests in the US. If you don’t think they would have some influence on a Cruz presidency, then you might want to think again.

        Trump doesn’t need anyone’s money so I don’t see how he could be bought off.

        Cruz might be the right candidate, but it’s not the right time for him. We needed someone like him 8 years ago instead of the pap the GOP fed us with McCain and Romney. That is why we have Trump today. And that is why we will either have a Trump or Hillary presidency.

          **** Trump was registered as a Democrat for more than eight years in the 2000s, according to New York City voter records made public during his campaign for president in 2016.

          Trump owned up to his years with the other party and told CNN he identified with Democrats during that time because they were more adept at handling the economy.

          Said Trump:

          “It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans. Now, it shouldn’t be that way. But if you go back, I mean it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats. … But certainly we had some very good economies under Democrats, as well as Republicans. But we’ve had some pretty bad disasters under the Republicans.”

          Trump was a registered Democrat from August 2001 through September 2009. ****

    The Dominionist connection is unsettling me.
    He never bothered co-opting the Trump constituency. That is ineptitude.
    Triangulation is not that hard.
    Disappointed.

    Cruz has been poorly portrayed by many and brilliantly (but in a very dishonest way) skewered by Donald Trump. Part of this is Ted Cruz (he seems to have a gift in alienating people) but part of this is because his opponents do not like what he is saying. And what he is saying is going back to a constitutionally based government. That boat sailed before the Titantic, the only difference is it took a bit longer for the nation to take on enough water to flounder. We are probably at that point where there is no fixing this (I do not want to be like a global warming alarmist, because bad things have a way of correcting some circumstances).

    It is a crying shame but that is where we are at.

    Cruz is the closest we’ll get to president Ruthless Hardass, probably in our lifetimes. He is the only candidate talking about ending Fourth Branch agencies and departments.
