from John Hawkins:
Ted Cruz is the living embodiment of what a conservative Republican in Congress is supposed to be. While the Republican leadership was bowing to Obama, breaking campaign promises and attacking its own supporters, Ted Cruz was at the point of the spear, fighting for the American people. Cruz is intelligent, eloquent and he has proven over and over again that he’s willing to stand up, speak out and fight back. There are several good candidates running for President, but if you’re looking for a strong, smart outsider who’s proven to be consistently conservative and willing to fight, you can’t do any better than Ted Cruz. After you read these quotes, you’ll see why that’s true.
1) “I think it’s an enormous blessing to be the child of an immigrant who fled oppression, because you realize how fragile liberty is and how easily it can be taken away.”
2) “You want to lose elections, stand for nothing. …And then of course, all of us remember President Dole and President McCain and President Romney. Now look, those are good men. They’re decent men, but when you don’t stand and draw a clear distinction; when you don’t stand for principle, Democrats celebrate.”
3) “I can tell you when you sit down and talk with a New York billionaire Republican donor — and I have talked with quite a few New York billionaire Republican donors, California Republican donors, their questions start out as follows. First of all, you’ve got to come out for gay marriage, you need to be pro-choice, and you need to support amnesty. That’s where the Republican donors are. You wonder why Republicans won’t fight on any of these issues? Because the people writing the checks agree with the Democrats.”
4) “We saw the ugly face of radical Islam in Garland, Texas. Thankfully, one police officer helped those terrorists meet their virgins.”
