More Americans are responding favorably to Donald Trump’s and Ted Cruz’s defiant stance against establishment politics, special interest groups and the media in general. Despite months of constant bashing and predictions both candidates would lose steam in the race for the Republican nomination for president, their momentum has risen.
While many voters have not decided on which candidate they favor, the verdict is in for who they will not elect. Those Americans who have concluded the Obama and liberal agendas have resulted in a strategic mess are not sitting in silence. They are standing up with boldness.
Clearly, millions of citizens, as evidenced by public opinion surveys, polls and bipartisan analysis, see that the failures of current White House, Congress and Judicial adherents only lead to a dreadful outlook at all political levels.
Like graffiti and litter, political decisions have trashed the American landscape in overlooked increments over a time, causing many of our traditional values to fade away into just another historical memory. Deliberately, political correctness media and police have moaned, offended, legislated, alleged, mocked, discounted and silenced most politicians with loud applause by the “The View,” “MSNBC,” and other liberal perpetrators.
While media, liberals and special interests agents continue to hammer away with their usual hoopla, Trump and Cruz gain more steam and energy on their campaign tracks.
“I’ve been challenged by so many people, and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness,” Trump blasted away at Megan Kelly during the first GOP debate. “And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either. This country is in big trouble. We don’t win anymore. We lose to China. We lose to Mexico both in trade and at the border. We lose to everybody.”
“The entire time Republican leaders have been promising, ‘we’re going to do something on the budget. We’re going to rein in the president,’ they have been in the back room negotiating to fund every single thing Obama did,” Cruz called the Senate out to their face. “… Nineteen times in the last ten months this so-called Republican majority has passed legislation, has had a vote succeed where a majority of Democrats supported it and a majority of Republicans opposed it…”
Like soldiers for truth, Trump and Cruz have found their way against a media focused more on candidates personally and less on relevant political issues. Trump forced illegal immigration to the front burner. Cruz’s electability stock climbed sharply when he went after debate moderators with his “no wonder the American people mistrust the media” response in Colorado. The disdain for these two candidates by mainstream media is evident.
Cruz is often compared to President Ronald Reagan, some of the similarities are prominent. During the 1980 election, Reagan was despised by many in the Republican leadership because he would not go along with their politics and agenda. When he challenged Gerald Ford, the sitting president in 1976, he made adversaries within the party. Reagan went on to win in 1980 as is considered one of the most respected presidents in history.
Like Reagan, Cruz said from the beginning his purpose in Washington was not to make friends. Instead he has gained recognition for standing out and doing what most Senators will not dare try. His record is one of fighting for conservative and independent voter causes even when they aren’t widely held by established politicians.
Cruz has risen as a leading voice on issues ranging from halting Obamacare funding, expanding U.S. energy production, opposing amnesty and fighting against common core initiatives in education. He has been especially strong in supporting Israel, stopping Iranian terrorists from attaining visas, and battling out of control government spending.
Perhaps his most important role has been in defending the U.S. Constitution. Cruz served as solicitor general of Texas and won five cases before the Supreme Court.
“He has utilized his deep knowledge of the Constitution to battle government intrusion,” the Conservative Review noted. “Cruz has fought against the use of drones to kill Americans within U.S. borders and against the NSA’s data collection program. He has also authored legislation protecting against voter fraud and eliminating restrictions on free speech.”
“His record is all the more impressive as a counterpoint to President Obama’s lack of leadership,” the Conservative Review states. “Cruz has been a leader in calling for forceful sanctions against countries like Iran and Russia and has battled in favor of U.S. military force against terrorist groups like ISIS and Hamas.”
Recently, Ted Cruz has earned some strong endorsements and respect from colleagues and in the media. Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Cruz “might be the smartest man in Congress.”
Cruz “may be our Ronald Reagan, because that guy does not take prisoners,” Glenn Beck observed. “That guy is a thousand times smarter than 99 percent of the politicians I have ever met.”
Tony Perkins, of the Family Research Council described Cruz as the “de facto leader of the Republican Party.”
“He is what people are looking for,” said Perkins. “Somebody who will stand up and say, ‘This is what I stand for, this is what I believe.’”
The realities of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks have not been lost with Trump and Cruz, who remember that on that day 2,996 people died including the hijackers. The victims included 2,606 in New York City, 246 on the four planes, and 125 at the Pentagon.
Like most legal voting Americans, these two candidates are facing political correctness head on. Cruz knows that liberal groups, fixated with eliminating every reference of God out of the public eye, continues to pray. He fights as he hears about an elementary school in North Carolina that ordered the six-year-old girl to remove the word “God” from a poem that she wrote to honor her two grandfathers that had served in the Vietnam War. Three more examples:
- A high school track team was disqualified last year because one of the runners “made a gesture thanking God” after crossing the finish line.
- A Florida Atlantic University student was banned from class because he refused to stomp on the name of Jesus.
- A student at Sonoma State University was ordered to take off a cross that she was wearing because someone “could be offended.”
Trump knows that this type of political messaging has infected most American institutions including the government, media, health, and education systems. The establishment has been remarkably consistent with trying to control what citizens can say and how they think, and they have unyielding propaganda mechanisms that never stops operating.
