A Gathering Storm Against...Ted Cruz?


#1

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was a subject of conversation and ire at the Republican National Convention. The conservative stalwart refused to endorse Republican nominee Donald Trump during hos remarks, which elicited loud boos from the attendees. It was a disaster. He was reportedly refused entry into the donor suite of Sheldon Adelson, a casino magnate who has given millions to the Republican Party.
Donors have also jumped off the Cruz train, leaving two questions. Why on earth would Cruz address the convention if he had no intention of endorsing Trump, something that the billionaire real estate magnate’s campaign knew beforehand. And is this the end of Cruz’s political career. He has little to no friends on the Hill—and a rapidly decreasing Rolodex back home. With no friends and significantly less cash, there’s a possibility that Cruz could face a primary challenge in 2018—and that appears to be what’s brewing in Texas (via CNN):

Well it looks like Cruz is going down.

While I don’t disagree because I don’t know I would say this. Anything put out in any media these days that’s a negative on any conservative is suspect. Even now Trump & conservatives in general worry them & there’s more crap out there about conservatives than at any other time in history.

Cruz is in the crosshairs, but not quite what one would think. Its the Dims that are smelling blood and see Cruz as a chink in the Conservative armor of Texas, look for them to mount a major effort at taking him down and getting a FAR LEFT in his place.

SIDEBAR: Cruz is a love and hate here in Texas. We the People LOVE HIM, but the GOP hates him and in fact did not endorse him until a couple of days before he won his seat.

I personally feel the position I want him in, even more so than POTUS is SCOTUS Justice. He can do the most good there for a long time…

I agree on this last. But there is NO WAY this toxic vetch of RINOs and neo-Marxists in the Senate will confirm his nomination.

There is such a thing as being the right man at the wrong time. Today’s drug-addled, spoiled, soft pseudo-citizen could care less about freedom. Lacking critical-thinking skills, he’s easily led by the Leftist agitators into active hatred of outspoken, proud, forthright conservatives.

That is where we’re at. We are going to collapse into a morass of Statism and all it entails - the economic retraction, the oppression, the expendibility of life; the status of the lower-orders’ lives being of less value than those of the Ruling Elites.

It may go hard or easy. The Soviet Union hung on for nearly a century; the Medieval period was a slow decline that lasted, what, 600 years? A lot depends on how hard we fall and whether we accommodate the new reality of no-freedom. If we do…we will not rise up; we will be enslaved until another Renaissance frees whichever descendants survive.

Or we may have a crash and crisis and Cruz may become a new Churchill. There is no way to know, now.

While I agree to a large extent, in a way I can’t blame them. It’s human nature to become unaware of something that you grew up taking for granted. Todays youth think 30 or more TV channels is normal or even below par. They feel deprived if they are without their cell phone for 15 minutes, maybe even panicky. The older we are the more we look around & go Wow, look how far we have come. The youth looks around & see’s “normal”. Our advances are their every day things. So if they take things for granted is it really their fault? Really if you get right down to it the parents are the one’s that didn’t educate them that life can be harder than losing a cell phone. And really did our parents (or grandparents) really sit us down & give “the talk” about some things being worth fighting & even dying for? I’m sure a lot of the youth today look at movies about WWII & think, yea it’s an ok movie but it just doesn’t have enough reality or blood or gore. They can’t connect what they see to real event in a meaningful way. Take cowboy movies for example. Kids used to watch them all the time. Good & bad was demonstrated right there on the screen in no uncertain terms. Now days most movies paint the characters as grey, sometime good or sometimes bad or even something bad happened in their youth that made them that way. That’s confusing for kids because it doesn’t show a clear cut moral standard. And again, did the parents take time to explain it to them?

So I tend to give the youth of today & people in general the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes it works out & sometimes it doesn’t.

And that is deliberate; it’s the Hollywood Left blurring morality and creating nihilism and anomie. With strong churches and families and communities, we don’t need a strong Central Government. So we don’t need strongmen like Stalin or Castro or Chavez…or Clinton or Rodham or Obama.

They CRAVE despotism, there in Hollywood. They assume their privileged life will continue and become more so…they have no clue what it’s like for artists in hard tyrannies. They could easily learn but they’re incurious and in denial.

There is a rebellion brewing and it is in both parties for different reasons. So it is up to the people to finally get themselves read up and clued in to the political stances of the various inept politicians out there and begin voting the Elites out. IN BOTH PARTIES. The republicans need to redefine who they are and the democrats need to look at the morass they find themselves in and determine of they want to be the old democrat or the neo-socialist democrat. The problem with Ted Cruz is he doesn’t pick his battles wisely. He KNOWS the media and the liberals are out to get him, therefore he desperately needs to couch his wording and pick his spots. Trump needs to do the same.
