The news was interesting this morning, and I hope my grandchildren can appreciate the fine tuning of our American Election process in the years to come. Here is my opinion on Mr. Cruz
Cruz-in’ for a Bruisin
This morning America was treated to a new nut job slobbering after the White House. In a way, it is good that Ted Cruz declared himself in the running, and gave all the religious reasons why he should be up there running things.
He probably has a chance similar to a snowball in hell, but let us ponder on what he would do if by some strange fluke and voter amnesia he actually won.
He would throw out the Health Care, thereby setting us back several decades in our public health level, cut all the domestic programs possible in the name of “smaller government” deny immigrants legal status even though his own family benefitted by immigrating here, and in general try to turn the constitution into an instrument of a theocracy.
Just because we pronounce that we have freedom of religion it does not mean we are free of the insane haranguing by religious zealots.
The Far Right wing of the GOP is determined to change our country into something it never was, by claiming they would “restore” America.
The last time the colonies were run by the preachers, we had witch burning and religious hysteria.
Since religion is based on fables and high emotion, there can be no logical discourse with people like Ted Cruz, Newt Gingrich, Pat Robertson, or another Mitt Romney.
In a way I am glad to see this announcement this early in our political election cycle. Now we get to Google the men and find out all the juicy details in the deep background.
Since Ted Cruz was born in Canada, let’s chew that bone to death.
Since he believes in the Bible, let’s trot out all the nasty bits like incest, rape, murder, conquest and robbery listed in between the covers of the great good book!
We could compare the Bible to the Koran and find all the similarities despite the craze in demeaning the Muslim faith.
Mr. Cruz is really taking a chance in declaring so early because I suspect we are going to get campaign fatigue very rapidly and sink into apathy at all the nonsense they try to cram down our throats.
Let the crazy guys come forth! Let us hoist our spears of ridicule, rake through the garbage spewed at our voter’s feet and consign each as they emerge to the dust heaps of history.
