Regarding Ted Cruz, you ain't seen nothing yetwrites Lloyd Marcus of the Texas senator who, with a count of 1.1 billion, set a record in Twitter hits.
Political analysts and pundits are chiming in, criticizing “Ted Cruz” the person for not being enough of this or too much of that. Keeping silent, I roll my eyes and tune them out. Trying to change these super-smart political expert minds would be fruitless.
I will concede that the Cruz campaign may or may not have made a few missteps. But with Trump out there breaking every campaigning rule in the book and speaking off the top of his head, don't tell me Cruz blew it because he was not a perfect enough candidate, too this or not enough that.
For crying out loud, Ted Cruz is an awesome human being. Period! The man walks tall. In debating issues vital to our country, Cruz is peerless. When called upon to stand up for We the People, he truly is “Lion Ted.” Therefore, I will not criticize Ted. Nor will I agree with those criticizing Ted for being who he is.
This remarkable man deserves so much better.
For years, I have lamented our side's pattern of trashing and throwing our heroes under the bus. Sharron Angle, Joe Miller, Chris McDaniel, and Sarah Palin to name a few. First we whine about the GOP establishment being complicit in furthering the Democrat/left's agenda. Courageous, sincere patriots, committed to breaking the GOP's pattern of betrayal, step up and enter into the extremely leftist-favored political arena.
When our conservative gladiators enter the arena, Democrats, the left, the GOP establishment, and mainstream media team up to stop and destroy them forever. The evil coalition launches its standard 24/7 character assassination shock-and-awe attack. Phase two includes endless absurd lies and extremely well funded dirty tricks. Whenever one of our candidates falls short of winning due to the behemoth opposing them, our advisers and voters blame the candidate for being too this or not enough of that. Then we throw our courage warriors on the junk heap of tainted and forever unelectable conservatives. In other words, if only our candidate would have mastered politically walking on water, we could have won or retained the seat.
The disloyalty sickens me.
This political season, many voters threw social and moral issues out the window. For the most part, Cruz stood alone vowing to investigate Planned Parenthood's horrific dead-baby-body-parts-chop-shop business, apparently a non-issue with many voters. Cruz recognized and vowed to fight LGBT activists' aggressive assault on our religious liberty, silencing and jailing Christians. Apparently defending religious liberty is a non-issue with many evangelicals.
In essence, many voters shouted,
“No, not this man. Give us Barabbas!”This is the truth of how many voted.
I also reject conventional wisdom that says Cruz is done, too damaged to be the leader of a national resurgence of conservatism. Hogwash!
Over sixty years of life experiences have taught me to trust God. I am telling you, folks – there is something truly unique and special about Ted Cruz, an anointing on his life.
