A few weeks ago I was chatting with someone who thought I would be supporting Marco Rubio for President. You know, because Marco is the Florida guy. (Yeah, seriously.) I was somewhat offended the person would assume that of me but I got over it quickly as I am considered a right-winger by centrists so was pleased when that person was somewhat surprised to learn I am a #CruzCrew member, a big time Ted Cruz fan.
As the discussion moves along the person brings up what I hear from the Lamestream Media (LSM): Ted Cruz cannot win because he cannot relate to the average person, he is Ivy League educated.
In my head I am thinking “What the heck is this person talking about? How did the person think Ted got elected as Texas Senator when the RINO machine tried to kill his campaign? Obviously the person has never listened to Ted Cruz speak, is oblivious to the role of the grassroots getting him elected or something else is going on here. So I ask: What makes you think that?
Well, without disclosing the why of that person’s thoughts I now present the evidence on how completely wrong my friend and the LSM are by this quote from The New Yorker article THE ABSOLUTIST by Jeffrey Toobin:
Cruz is conservative in appearance as well as ideology. He dresses like an I.B.M. salesman circa 1975, in boxy blue suits, white shirts, and red ties. His black hair is just long enough to be slicked back. When he speaks to an audience, he usually offers a half smile that suggests an unspoken bond with his listeners. He paces the stage, like a motivational speaker, and he extemporizes but doesn’t ramble. It’s easy to follow his speeches, because he sticks to an outline, in keeping with his training as a college debater.
“Easy to follow his speeches.” Yes indeed, absolutely easy to follow Ted when he speaks. The average person need not be a Harvard graduate to understand Ted’s words. He speaks plainly using the Socratic Method when he speaks to people. That is why Progressives fear him.
Add to that the fact Ted Cruz does not say one thing and do something else is evidenced by Michelle Malkin. He usually explains what IS is and then does what he says he is doing or will do and often suggests what we, The People, need to do to effect change. Therefore it is clear what Ted Cruz believes in and it is totally clear when WE, to support what he believes needs be done, need to exercise our power to #MakeDCListen. (He started that hashtag by the way and it is on the Cruz 2016 bumper I have on my vehicle. Let me know if you want one and I will let you know where you can get one.)
When someone tells me something negative or repeats LSM phrases regarding “Ted said (fill in the blank)”, I just go read or watch what Ted Cruz said for myself. I am smart enough to understand what Ted said because TED CRUZ: HE SPEAKS MY LANGUAGE.
Another example: Fox News Online with SPECIAL REPORT: BRET BAIER featuring Ted Cruz shows Ted discussing and answering questions that anyone can understand! Well, except the panel members who seem to sew seeds of doubt once he leaves the set. Seriously watch and listen to the segment and then decide if Cruz, as a statesman, takes the time to educate and persuade THE PEOPLE to rise up with personal power to take on Congress and #MakeDCListen.
Madison Rising‘s song HERO reminds me why Ted Cruz is a great communicator. He speaks the language of principle and values. Truly, Ted “speaks for the people and what we have to say.” And again, that is why the Progressives fear him.
Ted Cruz is consistent in reminding us that we can stand together to achieve greatness again. He consistently reminds us that we must, as the Jeremy Hoop song says so well, RISE UP! Ted truly believes in the American People, the greatness that lies within each of us to step up and step out of our comfort zones to take back the culture, to collectively reignite that flame of hope and hard work that made America great!
That is why I find it fascinating that Alan Dershowitz, along with saying Ted is one of “the sharpest students” he ever had, is quoted saying:
So there you have it. Thanks to Ted Cruz we are finally having real debates with principled ideas to challenge the Progressive lies. Ted Cruz is The New Great Communicator. Ted Cruz is a man of deep principle. And so are we, The People. Ted speaks for us and with us and to us. He appeals to our principles and encourages us to act on those principles. He and we are working in the same direction. We are united in purpose and thanks to Ted Cruz’s leadership we are working toward REIGNITING THE PROMISE OF AMERICA.
Ted Cruz for President of the United States of America. He is deeply principled.
