Cruz to Rahm: Donít mess with Texas
Washington Free Beacon ^ | January 29, 2013 | CJ Ciaramella

Posted on 01/29/2013 3:58:01 PM PST by Texas Fossil

Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) has a message for firearms manufacturers and banks under attack from Chicago Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel: Texas welcomes you.

Cruz pilloried Emanuel’s gun-control efforts and invited executives to consider the warmer, friendlier climes of the Lone Star State in a Tuesday letter to the CEOs of Bank of America, TD Bank, Sturm & Ruger, and Smith & Wesson.

“Free Men Need Not Ask Permission!”

THAT’s a tagline, if there ever was one.

I’m liking Cruz

“We do not accept the notion that government officials should behave as bullies...” - Cruz

“In the future, I would ask that you might keep your efforts to diminish the Bill of Rights north of the Red River.” - Cruz

Personally, I'd prefer if they were kept north of the Platte, or better still the Missouri.

Yep. You should have seen the fire in the belly of his supporters at the State GOP Convention. It was amazing. He is just being Cruz. Commie Dems will learn to fear him.

I have several pieces from Springfield Armory, they are just across the state from Chicago. It would be a shame if they left Geneseo because they employ a lot of the folks there but SA is certainly welcome down here IMHO.

The Left creates nothing. Only lies, steals, subjects, destroys, kills. Totalitarianism in all it’s forms (Fascism, Socialism, Marxism, Communism, Dictatorship, Islam) is evil.

Obozo is the Liar-in-Chief and he serves the Father-of-Lies.

Odds are the Texans working those plants would make a much better product as well. Some of the crap coming out of Illinois is embarrassing.

When Bushmaster got sold the new ownership up and moved it to new york. Wonder why cuomo hasn't taken steps to shut them down? Can't move back to Maine, old owners are using old plant and employees to build Windham rifles. Texas should give Bushmaster a call as well.

Dang they pulled the other thread for some reason. Ol Dead Fish needs to stay north of the Red, classic.. Goes for Odinga and Plugs. Although, I would like to give either one of these chaps a warm welcome in Texas....

Saw this one earlier today. Starting to like this guy Cruz a bunch.

Even the Cornyman is following his lead today on the Kerry vote. Maybe because he knows he is going to get primaried next year.

Way to go, Cruz! Loved his smackdown of the Ballerina.

Called Cornball's office this morning a said "thank God for Ted Cruz! Please ask Cornyn to follow Cruz' lead on ALL of the crapola coming at us, daily, from DC". Also said we realize Cornball only veers right at election time.

It appears to me that you Texans have discovered a warrior leader. Now you need infantry to back him up.

Actually, Springfield would just be moving *back* down here. A buddy of mine has an early M1A rifle (3-digit S/N) with a "Devine, TX" rollmark.

All it would take in TX to field 500,000 man army is for Rick Perry to call “help”. I can assure you that the pieces are there to make that happen. And the leadership in TX knows it.

But remember, there is a time and a place for such things. Not quite yet.

That was kinda my reaction as well, except I was thinking it should be limited to the inside of Rahm's garage.

Not to worry, eventually Cruz will say SOMETHING people here don't agree with and then they will turn on him like they did Perry because he isn't 100% pure.

It's just a matter of time.

“Free Men Need Not Ask Permission!” THAT’s a tagline, if there ever was one.

It's also a very good rewording of the precise import of the Ninth Amendment. No bouncing it off Boomer or running it by Ronnie. Just go where you wish and open your business, nobody will demand you justify yourself or produce "credentials".

We all knew it in Texas the minute he beat the super-funded, $2000-suit-wearing, execrable RiNO lieutenant governor of Texas, David Dewhurst.

Texas is more a State of mind, not just a State.

The “Texas” desire for freedom and liberty can be had where you are.

There are more patriots than 47% ers and the moochers don’t have our fire in the belly.

Cruz is just getting started. It was clearly evident from the first time most of us heard Cruz that he was something very special and sorely needed.

Yep.

Best strategy is expose his real past. It is out there if the “right people” are ready for the can of worms to be opened. Then the trail of slime will lead to his criminal enablers. The time may be near.

You must admit that the residents of Texas do not live in fear like the residents of many NE Big Cities (and places like Chicago). Even in our cities we have good neighbors in most places in Texas.
