Ted Cruz: He Speaks My Language

I am not one of those brilliant political science people that can spurt out facts, figures, history or dates. My mind does not work that way. But what I am great at doing is listening to and recognizing honorable men and women who are honest enough to engage in debate that is designed to induce critical thinking to make a point.

One of the articles that I find helpful every political cycle is by Gary C. Lawrence titled POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS AND YOU. I liked it so much that years ago I found his number and called him to ask if I could share his article with others. He said yes. He was kind enough to discuss with me that the only thing he would add to the article at that time was in the last paragraph. He believes that one should pray about one’s choice after going through the self-eduation process.

As I go through Mr. Lawrence’s checklist to critically think through current campaign rhetoric I find that Ted Cruz meets my standard for what I want a Presidential Candidate to be. That is why I appreciate Ted Cruz and why Ted speaks my language. I get him. He methodically takes me through a thought process to persuade me about why he believes something is right and why he thinks the way he does. I know his history in consistent and persistent action to back up that in which he claims to believe.

  1. How much is this potential going to cost Taxpayers?
  2. How will imminent domain be used for this potential extension route?
  3. How much money has been spent and is there a money trail for pre-and-post extension costs?
  4. Where is the money coming from and who is it going to?
  5. And since there are alleged CLINTON money ties to this Port Canaveral project, isn’t that enough to warrant an investigation of the Port Commission decision making process?

Ask Congressman Bill Posey and Senator Bill Nelson where they stand on the Arab Takeover of Port Canaveral. Then ask the Brevard County Commissioners to take back Port Canaveral Authority before unrealistic tax burdens are heaped upon residents in Brevard County.

THANKS Bill Posey, one of the Courageous Florida FIVE

I have been pretty rough on my Congressman Bill Posey because I too often feel that he does not stand out as a leader among conservatives. He has aligned himself with Boehner too many times for my liking AND he is not prone to support legislation designed to pull back the reins on government before he “has a chance to read the bill.”

Sometimes I feel like I never get a straight answer from his office. They say one thing that sounds good, but then it sounds like there is a walk-back before the discussion is over. That is extrememly disheartening if a clear answer is not given.

I must say that I was beyond happy that Bill Posey voted against Boehner as Speaker of the House. That is one of the most gutsy votes I have seen him take. I am extremely thrilled that he stood up for change in Washington D.C.’s status quo because as noted in a previous post, I am no longer a fan of John Boehner.

So THANKS BILL! Thanks for standing up for change, for risking your position in D.C. by opposing John Boehner. Please know that I have your back and I will stand up for you if Boehner uses thuggary retaliation as retribution for your courageous vote.

I also thank the other four comprising the #FloridaFive of the #24Stood4Us. YOUR courage to work for the 60% who want Boehner ousted is duly noted and will not be forgotten!

REMOVING Speaker Boehner: Procedural FACTS

Thank you Heritage Action for  SPEAKER ELECTION: PROCEDURAL FACTS to clear the all of the talking points twittering about in the universe.

I USED to think Boehner was one of the good guys. He might be a good guy doing the best he can but it is not good enough for me any more. There is so much to say but it has been said repeatedly and well documented:

!) CROMNIBUS:

2) OBAMNESTY:

3) OBAMACARE:

Note in Boehner’s speech, 5 POINTS FOR RESETTING AMERICA’S ECONOMIC FOUNDATION, he fails to bring up how much, in the over “ten years” he has been in Congress, he is a part of the spending problem. Why does he fail to mention FULL REPEAL on bad bills like the #Cromnibus, #Obamnesty, and #Obamacare bills? Oh, and what about the Debt Limit?

Yeah. It is time for Boehner to go. November 2014 elections were won by Tea Party Candidates in spite of the Boehner Guard control of RNC funding.

P.S. And one more thing: Boehner Throws in with Obama

President Obama and John Boehner want a bill that the bases of their respective parties reject.  Boehner is enabling (or did enable) the passage of a bill in the House that the Republican base wants no part of.  They don’t want Obamacare fully implemented or funded, and they do not want Obama to get away with this executive amnesty.  Boehner has worked with Obama.” 

Blogging again

A few years ago I had a blog on blogspot which seemed a whole lot easier to use. I stopped because I hated Google and where it was going so deleted everything. Not that it matters now, apparently.

So now I am starting up again. Why?

Not exactly sure why. I enjoy writing. I am Tea Party Patriot and I love the United States of America. I want to be free. I want to be free to have an opinion. I want feel like I have a voice in government and I want to learn from credible sources not engaged to implement sophistry, malfeasance, or lies.

Like Rush talks about being a benevolent Dictator on his show, I want to be a benevolent Dictator on my blog about things that interest me.
