WHY TED CRUZ IS MORE ELECTABLE THAN YOU THINK

Ted Cruz is the candidate most likely to take our country from where it’s arrived under the leadership of President Obama to where it should be – in the hands of “We the People.” His authenticity and consistency are just two of the advantages he has over the rest of the field-in-waiting. He says what he means, he means what he says, and Washington knows it.

Expectedly, the knives are out against Sen. Cruz, and they’re coming from both sides of the aisle. There’s no doubt in my mind however, many of those knives will be dulled once the presidential debates begin. Critics have begun questioning Cruz’s experience, intentions, judgment, likeability and overall appeal. However, if Sen. Cruz can persuade “establishment voters” of his electability, illustrate his in depth understanding of the separation of powers, communicate how silly it is to compare his tenure in the senate to that of President Obama’s, and continue to stand against the progressive left who are determined to expand the powers of the federal government (particularly the executive branch) he could be America’s last best hope.

The only thing worse than establishment politicians are establishment voters that habitually fill in the ballot for their party candidate no matter how many promises he or she breaks. Why? Because they don’t want to see “their guy” from their party lose. Unequivocally they buy into the same old establishment arguments from the media and the parties themselves. For example: “he’s unelectable,” “he’s too extreme” or “he doesn’t have enough experience.” The latter would be a valid argument if the country’s moral decadence and federal deficits hadn’t skyrocketed during the reign of experienced politicians.

I appreciate the executive experience that governors bring to a presidential race, but state politics are unlike Washington politics. Governors practice activism on behalf of their state; presidents should practice restraint for the betterment of their country. There’s something to be said about a legislator that has operated in the belly of the beast and remained true to himself and his constituents. What makes Sen. Cruz unique is that he’s well acquainted with arguing cases in front of the Supreme Court as Solicitor General. He did so nine times. He’s shown courage, conviction and efficiency working within both the judicial and legislative arms of our federal government amounting to two-thirds of our government! Why shouldn’t we believe he’s capable to lead the executive branch?

It is a fact that Obama lacked executive experience. However, it’s unfair to say his lack of experience is exclusively why America is in such disarray, and as a result, it’s why we should only elect governors to the White House. The country is in bad shape because we have a president who doesn’t believe in its founding, or our Constitution. His leanings are not partisan or political, rather they are ideological. Therefore, the decisions he’s made -and I’d argue seeming lack of decisions- are consistent with his proclivity to root against the best interest of America.

On the other side of the spectrum stands Senator Cruz who believes in American Exceptionalism and constitutional originalism. I’m confident that a man with such convictions will make for a great president.

As far as electability is concerned, it never ceases to amaze me when voters on the right agree with elitists of the GOP who listen to left-wing pundits. All it takes to make the unelectable electable is your vote companied with a little retail politics. Those of us on the right get what we deserve when we allow the leftists in both parties to pick our candidates. Being informed about the candidates is more crucial than ever. As iron sharpens iron so will the debates sharpen our candidates’ ability to frame their messages effectively. I suspect being a champion debater from Harvard, Senator Cruz will have an edge on the others in the field.

I’m eager to see Sen. Rand Paul, Governor Scott Walker, Governor Bobby Jindal, Sen. Marco Rubio and even former Sen. Rick Santorum jump into the race. But, if you were to ask me today, “who is the candidate most likely to reclaim our Judeo-Christian heritage and right the wrongs that republicans and democrats alike have levied on our nation at the expense of our constitution?” hands down my answer would be presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz.

  1. Kudos Carl,

    I just read your article on Townhall and couldn’t agree more with your very inspiring piece. It’s also a bit disconcerting that you appear to be the first national voice making the case for Senator Cruz. I particularly like your key distinction with the executive experience/governor argument being that Cruz has an unparalleled understanding of American exceptionalism and the US constitution. Once upon I time I believed anyone in Congress would surely have these foundational beliefs no matter what side of the aisle, but sadly that has been consistently proven false these days. So Cruz’s grasp and consistent walking and talking of these foundational ideas provide the strategic environment for a Reagan-like conservative approach to get the US back on track that even the best governors today do not possess.
    Again, great article and I’m looking for your radio station right now as I was pleasantly surprised to find that you are a Floridian! I look forward to meeting you in the future. The very best to you, my friend!

    Cheers, Jeffrey

    2. Janette, We can disagree, but Scott Walker is for Amnesty. My idea is the US Constitution is the answer. I cannot say I have ever seen the compromise of absolutes and using compromise as the plan to get back to absolutes. Either the politicians believe in the oath they take or they don’t.

  2. Cruz defines marriage as 1 man 1 woman. The why did he vote to confirm ALL of Barack Obama’s gay activist judges ? The policies of these judges to the American family will have affects for generations. If we disagree , then we know where the other stands,and the possibility of one of us hearing the others view may or may not change our mind, but we had true debate.But if you are told you agree when you do not, that is clear deception. 100% of the republican senators have voted with the democrats unanimously to confirm All of Obama’s gay judges.Every one of the US Senators who are in the presidential race are targeting the religious right. Their voting record that does not match their message. I will give you a hint before you pull up their record and not their rhetoric, Obama close to 7 years is at 100% and the republicans are still at 00.00%. I think wrestling may end up being real, but politics of the 2 parties are fake. I will vote for a citizen candidate who is closest to the US Constitution, even he he cannot win.

  4. Proof Ted Crus Does Not Know the Constitution Or He Deceives People To Delay His True Political Views

    http://www.cruz.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=2303

    Article 1. Section 1. already defines the Congress not Courts as law maker.

    Article 3. Section 1. has already established the courts responsibility to Congress, not another amendment.

    Article 6. is the proof the judges,congress and senate is not interested in governing by the US Constitution.

    Senator Ted Cruz still has not answered why he has confirmed all of Obama’s gay activist judges ?

    1. Hey Lightweight,
      thanks for your comment. Like it or not, it’s factual that Ted Cruz has the most in depth knowledge than any conservative running for office. That’s just fact – sorry.
