“I think President Obama is the most radical president this nation’s ever seen… I think he is a true believer in government control of the economy and of our everyday lives… In my judgment, we are facing what I consider to be the epic battle of our generation, quite literally the battle over whether we remain a free market nation.”
As someone who accuses the Obama administration of being strongly Marxist influenced, it is clear why I would be a powerful supporter of a candidate who so rightly calls out the Obama administration for an anti-liberty and anti-freedom course of action. The candidate I am writing about is the child of a Cuban immigrant who in 1957 fled imprisonment and torture in Cuba. He was the youngest Solicitor General in America. He has clerked for strong conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court. He also has authored over 70 U.S. Supreme Court briefs.
I am writing to you in support of former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz. Ted is in a four-way race to succeed three-term Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, who for some odd reason thought she had a shot at knocking off the Texas Jobs Creator, Rick Perry. The fact that Hutchison had the full support of the entire Bush crowd was reason enough to do anything possible to keep her out of the Austin statehouse. The excellent Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee says, “Ted is one of our nation’s leading defenders of the 10th Amendment. He is a champion for limiting the power, size, and spending of the federal government.”
Ted, who graduated cum laude from Princeton and magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, was the first Hispanic SG in Texas history. Instead of an “issues” page on his website, Ted has a “proven record” page dealing with his accomplishments, unlike the neophyte in the White House who could never present such a page for the obvious reasons. On health care, Ted Cruz believes that we should focus on dismantling every word of Obama’s supposed health-care reform. Dick Armey and FreedomWorks are behind Ted Cruz for senator. Mike Lee is behind Ted. The Club for Growth is on board. And I am proud to join a rapidly building group of sensible Americans who support Ted Cruz.
My neighborhood in Key West is strongly Cuban. As such, I look forward to all the excitement that is going to build in support of Ted. Here in Key West, folk are well informed and active, and in every election, support is usually divided 50/50. At the polls, Debbie and I and about 12 other KW residents join our Cuban neighbors in support of conservative candidates.
