Well, he had my vote.
I hope he keeps his attitude up and not get Potomac Fever.
Time for someone to introduce legislation repealing the FAILED Gun Free School Zones Act.
Perry and Dewhurst went down in flames and I couldn't be more elated.
This is the only point that I might disagree on. As I understand it, the fiscal cliff deal had no spending cuts, maybe some decreases to proposed increases in spending but no real cuts.
I like that phrase. It’s something that even liberals can understand and it cut’s to the heart of true conservatism. It’s almost Reaganesque.
Wolfie Boy Blitzer probably was at a loss for words when Cruz called Obama intransigent.
Bravo! How do we support this guy and guys like him? Just keep writing positive, supportive emails?
Now the media, which never looks into the backgrounds of Democratic politicians, will start digging into Ted Cruz’s life from grade school, through college, and his time in Texas politics. I hope he stays strong through all this because we know the liberal establishment and their shadow buddies in the media hate conservative non-white politicians with a venom much worse than that for a white conservative. As someone stated earlier let’s hope he doesn’t come down with “Potomac fever” or fall under the influence of that weasel Mitch McConnell.
Thanks for posting. HOORAY Ted! Maybe...finally...hopefully...some representation inside the collective?

Legal Plunder Has Many Names
Now, legal plunder can be committed in an infinite number of ways. Thus we have an infinite number of plans for organizing it: tariffs, protection, benefits, subsidies, encouragements, progressive taxation, public schools, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed profits, minimum wages, a right to relief, a right to the tools of labor, free credit, and so on, and so on. All these plans as a whole with their common aim of legal plunder constitute socialism.
Now, since under this definition socialism is a body of doctrine, what attack can be made against it other than a war of doctrine? If you find this socialistic doctrine to be false, absurd, and evil, then refute it. And the more false, the more absurd, and the more evil it is, the easier it will be to refute. Above all, if you wish to be strong, begin by rooting out every particle of socialism that may have crept into your legislation. This will be no light task.
Socialism Is Legal Plunder
The Law Defends Plunder
But it does not always do this. Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Thus the beneficiaries are spared the shame, danger, and scruple which their acts would otherwise involve. Sometimes the law places the whole apparatus of judges, police, prisons, and gendarmes at the service of the plunderers, and treats the victim when he defends himself as a criminal.
This legal plunder may be only an isolated stain among the legislative measures of the people. If so, it is best to wipe it out with a minimum of speeches and denunciations and in spite of the uproar of the vested interests.
I hope he does the right thing. So many of these politicians flip faster than flipping hotcakes.
God bless ya Ted.
God Bless you Ted Cruz.
Disrupt them, and get them off their game.
Signal the others.
Great stuff thanks.
He may *want* to file that bill, but Harry Reid will not permit it to be heard by any committee, much less voted on.
Cruz is the most articulate politician I have ever hear. Hear his father at a Tea Party meeting, and he is equally so, although he has this Cuban accent, like Desi. Cruz is ferocious in debate in a lawyerly way. He is a comer, but since he was born in Canada, not in that direction.
The ‘Rats will be gunning for him ala Tom DeLay. He needs someone to ride shotgun in the Sin-ate with him to pick off the ‘Rat interlopers.
