Many very conservative Americans are huge fans of Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz is intelligent, extremely well spoken and his positions are as conservative as can be. Cruz is willing to stand up to Obama and the Republican establishment.
Here is what conservative Republican wrote recently about Cruz:
Our decision now becomes one of deciding which conservative candidate to support. We need a man who has proven that he will stand up to the liberal media and the establishment and fight tooth and nail for conservative values. A man that will listen to his conservative base, not crony capitalists or special interest groups. A man who is both highly moral and extremely intelligent. Ladies and gentlemen, we need Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)95%.
The reason for making Ted Cruz our nominee, is that he has several unique advantages that will help him win the general election. After all, there is absolutely no purpose to nominating someone who is not going to win the presidency for us. The following are just a few of the many good reasons for conservatives to support the candidacy of Senator Cruz:
Ted Cruz is the closest thing we have seen to Ronald Reagan, well, since Ronald Reagan. Just like Ted, Ronald Reagan was outspoken in his defense of taxpayers and conservative values, disliked by the liberal media, and greatly feared by the “go along” establishment Republicans. After all, it was Reagan who said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, I’m from the government and I’m here to help” and, “Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the Democrats believe every day is April 15.” Both men espouse American Exceptionalism and strongly oppose the status quo. In fact, Reagan famously said, “Status quo, you know, is Latin for ‘the mess we’re in’.” We should help Senator Cruz usher in the second coming of the Reagan Revolution.
Long odds and liberal media bias won’t affect his chances of winning the way it will the other GOP candidates. A look at the 2012 Texas Senate race proves that. David Dewhurst was the overwhelming favorite to win the Republican primary. Dewhurst was endorsed by Gov. Rick Perry and a veritable who’s who of powerful establishment politicians, he had the media in his back pocket, and also held a tremendous financial advantage over Cruz. But Ted took that seat in what is now considered THE textbook example of how to win a political race by the use of a grassroots campaign. First of all, Cruz was able to garner endorsements and support from conservative groups and tea party figures as diverse as Rick Santorum, FreedomWorks, The Club For Growth, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)93%, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and RedState’s Erick Erickson. Ted was then able to successfully unite all these different factions of the conservative movement into a finely tuned grassroots machine as Cruz pulled off what the Washington Post termed the biggest political upset of 2012.
A writer in the Business Insider in 2013 wrote:
Brash, borderline arrogant, but undeniably whipsmart, Cruz has rankled Democrats and delighted Republicans with his take-no-prisoners, make-no-compromises approach to legislating. His popularity has skyrocketed among a conservative base starved for excitement after enduring milquetoast moderates like Mitt Romney and John McCain.
“Republicans love him because he’s honest, because he’s not afraid to take on the Establishment,” said Vincent Harris, a digital strategist who works with Cruz. “He’s energetic and Republicans are just tired of people who are going along to get along — that is the antithesis of Senator Cruz.”
“He’s conservative and he’s not afraid to talk about — and he’s not afraid to even say and do things that people in the Beltway aren’t used to,” Harris added. “It’s exciting and refreshing.”
Democratic strategist James Carville called Cruz the most fearless and talented Republican in 30 years.
