Ted Cruz is the most frightening candidate for president in my lifetime. Not only do I not think he should be considered for President, he shouldn’t even be allowed in the Senate. His theocratic views, his willingness to do and say anything to win, and his blatant disregard for the Constitution are alarming.
On today’s show I lay out a pretty clear cut case why Ted Cruz may be a sociopath and why any lover of liberty would be crazy to support him.
When Ted Cruz announced this week that he was firing his campaign’s communications director for promoting a video claiming Marco Rubio had belittled the Bible, he said,
“Even if it was true, we are not a campaign that is going to question the faith of another candidate.”
Wow. I guess he forgot that campaign stop in Iowa last month where his supporters who introduced him to the stage opening said Trump wasn't a christian, even going so far as to mock him.
One of them claimed trump thought he was more popular than Jesus.
I have been saying since day one Ted Cruz is a sociopath. All you have to do is watch him speak. Look at his eyes. How he carefully manipulates his facial expressions and regulates the tone and inflection of his voice. The man is a calculating psychopath in my opinion
Make no mistake. Double talk, lies and dirty tricks are all a part of American politics. Always have been. But what makes Ted Cruz so creepy is his overt claims of self righteousness. Perched high above us all on his could of sanctification he looks down up us mere mortals. Smug in his indignant attitude of holiness.
He chooses well spoken words to try and convince you of the invisible halo hovering spiritually above his head, all the while stabbing at your intelligence with his pitchfork.
He claims the moral high ground over his opponents, all the while wallowing in a mud pit of sin and shamelessness.
If you remember the CNN town hall in South Carolina he said he didn't ever speak with a lack of civility or respect concerning his fellow congressmen. He went on to proclaim.
“The Bible talks about if someone treats you unkindly, repay them with kindness,” he added. “That has been the standard I’ve tried to follow. That’s how I’ve approached it in the Senate. So I have not attacked or insulted my colleagues in the Senate, Democrat or Republican.”
Unfortunately for Ted Cruz, CSPAN shows much of what he says on the senate floor. So maybe he should be surprised that many of us recall him talking about Mitch McConnell and flat out calling him a liar.
Meanwhile on the campaign trail her repeatedly feigns shock and dismay that Donald Trump would use that word. Liar. How could he?
You may or may not remember the time he compared Senate Republicans who dared question if defunding Obamacare was possible or not, Nazi Appeaser.
Surely not. Not this Ted Cruz, the second coming of righteousness and virtue.
Does anyone remember after Mitt Romney lost to Obama him saying “I’m pretty certain Mitt Romney actually French-kissed Barack Obama.”
Let's recall some of his morally superior actions in the campaign so far.
In Iowa his campaign told voters than Ben Carson had dropped out of the race.
In South Carolina doctored a photograph so that it showed Rubio shaking hands with President Obama in front of the United States Capitol.
This from a man that is constantly quoting the Bible, talking about Jesus and touting his morality?
How Ironic that in South Carolina Donald Trump got more of the Evangelical vote than did Cruz.
Maybe you should quote some more bible verses Ted. Or how about you start dressing in sandals and robes. Or how about this for an idea! You do the robes and sandals and carry one of those giant crosses around like these guys you see trekking across the south around Easter. Yeah. that might work!
As a person who has studied intently the founding of this country, the thoughts of our founders on there not being a religious test for candidates, and a person that loves liberty...Ted Cruz makes me sick.
Ted Cruz is well know for saying “any president who doesn’t begin every day on his knees isn’t fit to be commander in chief”
Hey Ted, how about you spend some of that time that you have spent praying on becoming less of a scumbag. We know you think it's god's will that you be president. Your father believes it. We've seen the video of everyone saying it as they stand around you praying.
It's frightening to say the least!
Maybe someone should show you the Constitution. It may enlighten you about whether a president has to pass your religious test. You claim to not only be spiritually and morally superior to the other candidates as well as most of the citizens, but you also claim to be some great admirer of the Constitution. You quote it often when talking about the 2nd amendment. Kudos to you for that. But there is a lot of other great stuff in it you should consider reading.
I suggest article 6 as a great start!
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States
Finally, you have been a part of some of the scariest political events I have ever seen. One in particular. The National Liberties Conference where Kevin Swanson talked about killing gay people to raucous applause from the crowd, right before he brought you on stage?
"Leviticus says that homosexuals should be put to death. The apostle Paul says it. And I am not ashamed of the gospel!"
That may be the scariest thing I've ever heard. And the people in this country say Muslims extremist are crazy. Newsflash. You and your extremist friends are one gay killing away from going off the deep end.
Ted Cruz is the scariest candidate for president I have ever seen in my lifetime. I would gladly take 10 more terms of Obama before I'd take one term of this religious zealot as president of the United States.
The truth is there aren't any good choices for president in 2016 among the major parties. I don't even love any of the Libertarian candidates although Gary Johnson stands head and shoulders above the establishment crowd of lawbreakers, socialists and neocons.
There is a move in this country. The people are pushing back. But their support for Trump and Sanders shows they are channeling their anger in the wrong direction. It is up to us libertarians to guide them the right way.
