Ted Cruz’s Father delivers epic speech touting patriotism & lambasting Obama’s Socialist inclination
The Blaze ^ | July 6, 2013 | Billy Hallowell

Rafael Cruz, the father of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, invigorated the crowd during tonight’s FreedomWorks Free the People event.

Describing his own personal journey escaping Cuba and working hard to build a life for himself in the U.S., the elder Cruz noted comparisons that he believes exist between Fidel Castro’s governance and President Barack Obama’s executive actions.

Upon rising to power, he said that Castro, like Obama, spoke about hope and change. While the message sounded good at the time, it didn’t take long for socialism to take root in his home country. And he paid the price.

Let's also not forget that Socialism is against the law (the Constitution - the Law of the Land). The whole tenor of Socialism is force upon the individual by the government. That is the antithesis of the Constitution which is based on the presumption of individuals' God-given rights to life, liberty, and pursuits.

The federal government has no legitimate power outside its enumerated powers (DELEGATED by the people and the states BTW) and the only constitutional power the feds have specifically to prohibit an individual is the 13th Amendment prohibiting an individual to own a slave.

So far, I like both the father and the son.

Haven’t “met” the rest of the family, yet.

What a speech! Such passion. Very lacking in too many of the native born Americans.

Regarding the “Baffoon” pic. If I am not mistaken, Barack has at least one cow.

Had Obama not left his homeland of Kenya at such a tender age he might not have grown up to be a Castro wannabe.

My wife and I had the opportunity to hear the senior Cruz as a warm-up speaker at a quick stop in Temple during the Primary. We were converted to Cruzism before Ted even entered the building.

We had had very short notice about the meeting and there were only about ten locals in attendance. We were outnumbered by the tag-a-longs.

We left with several signs that were well displayed along our fence line and now have a spot of honor in my shop...

Maybe we could get him to run against Coryn the Rino...

Great Pic

I am pretty sure that was taken at the Texas Republican convention
and I had the honor of putting that Ted Cruz for US Senate sticker on Rafael.

The greassroots enthusiasm for Ted Cruz blew away the Dewhurst supporters

I was there! Thank you for posting this. What a ZINGER of an event! It was interesting how the rain really didn’t bother us. Ted Cruz’ father was the highlight of the evening for sure! All the speakers were great! We were on the lawn and today we are going out to purchase stadium seats - you know, those “chairs” that sit on the ground.

See you tonight at Man in the Moon!!!
