Do Not Back Down

Senator Cruz with a bolt action pen I presented to him. The pen was made by my step father, CPO Bill Belitz.

I watched a hero stand and deliver on the U.S. Senate floor on Monday, September 28th. He called out members of his own party and used his own political capital to pull back the curtain on the Washington Cartel. Needless to say that the Cartel members were not pleased. That's too darn bad. When Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell decided not to fight for a bill to fund the government with exceptions for the felonious Planned Parenthood and the catastrophic Iranian nuclear deal and instead brought up a "clean"(actually quite dirty) continuing resolution bill, he threw in with a president bent on diminishing the United States of America's position abroad and "fundamentally changing it" here at home. This hero has given the American people a voice in the Senate.

The electorate threw out the members of current regime's political party thinking that the supposed opposition party would start to change things in Congress. With the largest Republican majority in the House in decades and an eight seat majority in the Senate, the leaders of the supposed opposition decided that correcting things would be hard to do and since those hard things required actual work, they would rather not do them. Speaker of the House John Boehner has chosen to commit political seppuku instead of acting as an actual leader. On his way out the door, he showed himself to be the sophomoric loser that he is. He took pot shots, once again, at the man he sees as his foil. Sadly, his counterpart in the Senate is still entrenched in his seat of power lording over the "world's most deliberative body". Frankly, Mitch McConnell has been no better than the previous leader, "Dingy" Harry Reid. At least Harry Reid was fighting for his leftist principles he ran on. Leader McConnell is fighting against the ideas he campaigned on in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Sadly, the junior Senator from that same state has also thrown in with McConnell. There is a reason the hash tag, #DitchMitch has become popular on conservative social media.

I, for one, see only one man standing for the people that elected him. He also is standing up for the rest of us that believe in the greatness that was the USA. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas named names of the feckless establishment in the Senate after the dirty CR was rammed through. He calmly, yet quite forcefully, laid out the nature of the Republican party in Washington, DC and it wasn't pretty. Congress critters campaign as conservatives and when the get to DC, whether through planned deception or leadership coercion, they become turncoats. They say one thing in their home states and districts and do the complete opposite in Washington, DC. I, for one, am tired of it.

With all of the venom coming from "my side" of the aisle, I feel that it is imperative that we support those men and women in Washington, DC that stand with us and follow their campaign promises. In addition to Senator Cruz, Senator Mike Lee of Utah needs to be held up. Senator Lee has proved to be a quiet warrior for the Constitution and has been a great ally in the fight to save the soul of the Republic. The Freedom Caucus in the House can also be counted with those two great Senators as defenders of good governance. Outside of these 40 or so members of the Senate and House, the whole lot is a corrupt bunch of self serving politicians bent on staying in power and milking donor dollars from the udders of K Street lobbyists. This cabal of ruling class politicians needs to be broken up. One man has the will to do it.

With all this being said, my decision to support Senator Ted Cruz has become a mission. I will do everything I can to help his campaign for the White House. It is time to return the People's House to a leader that respects the office and the country that he would represent. Barack Obama has been a conduit for destructive change and it will take a great leader to start to undo the catastrophic damage done to the Republic by Comrade Obama and his band of Senators and Representatives that have given everything he really wanted. The time is now to support a leader that respects the people. The time is now for a leader that respects the nobleness of the founding of this country. The world needs a strong United States. Ted Cruz has shown himself to be ready to lead on day one. I urge you to look at all of the candidates running and evaluate them. Look at their resumes. Judge them by their fruits, as Senator Cruz says. I urge you to support Senator Cruz after doing that research. I think you'll find him uniquely qualified to lead this country in a very turbulent time. This is not the time to entrust the store to someone that doesn't have the best interest of said store at heart. Support someone that is in DC to not back down. As Senator Cruz says, if a candidate is supported by the establishment in DC, run the other direction.

One Down...

My demand that John Boehner and Mitch McConnell be removed from their positions of leadership is now half way to the goal. John Boehner is done.(cue the angelic music) Conservatives are cheering for good reason. Sadly, it looks like John Boehner has stabbed the conservatives in the back on his way out the door by making a back room deal with Nancy Pelosi to pass a "clean" continuing resolution bill to fund the government through the election next year. I guess that's par for the course for John Boehner. This shows the need to make sure you let your representative know who you support to be the next Speaker. Call (202) 224-3121 and let your representative know that you don't want another moderate squish that will stand for nothing as the Speaker of the House. Kevin McCarthy is the current name being floated. He is a Boehner protege. Urge a no vote on McCarthy.

Besides the petty parting shot by Boenher, what this whole episode shows is the power of conservatives, when speaking with a loud and clear voice, to change the status quo in Washington, DC. This is just the first battle in the war for the soul of the country. This also shows the power of a true leader that speaks for us in the US Congress. Senator Ted Cruz is the only reason that a light has been shown on the Washington Cartel. He is not afraid to stand against either party to expose corrupt Washington kleptocrats. The government has been reminded, now in no small way, that it works for the people. Not the other way around.

I want to do my small part to bring light to the darkness. I will keep writing in favor of Senator Cruz. I will make phone calls. I will send tweets and post to Facebook. I've seen his presidential campaign up close. It is filled with good, upstanding people that believe in the Senator's mission. I'm glad to be counted amongst this great group of people.

I urge you to continue your research. You will never find a more honorable man to run for political office. Senator Cruz has made a career of fighting for the rights and liberties we hold dear. Below you'll find the Senator's proven record:

Ted Cruz: A Proven Record 
Standing up for what’s right isn’t always easy. But after spending a lifetime fighting for conservative principles, Ted Cruz has proven that he will defend the values that have made America the greatest nation on Earth.
Politicians all too often promise one thing on the campaign trail, only to break those promises once elected. We should ask every candidate to prove it:
“You say you believe in these principles. Show me. When have you fought for conservative principles and what have you accomplished?”
Ted Cruz has proven he will keep his word. Whether it’s leading the charge to repeal Obamacare; fighting to finally secure the border and stop the President’s illegal and unconstitutional amnesty; introducing legislation to allow businesses and entrepreneurs to create unprecedented jobs, growth and prosperity; or fighting to defend our Second Amendment rights as enshrined in the Constitution – Ted Cruz has consistently shown that he can be trusted to do what he said.
Our Standard: The Constitution
Ted Cruz has spent a lifetime fighting to defend the Constitution — our nation’s founding document and the supreme law of the land — which was crafted by our founding fathers to act as chains to bind the mischief of government and to protect the liberties endowed to us by our Creator.
Religious Liberty
Second Amendment
  • Played a crucial role in preventing federal legislation to restrict the Second Amendment rights of Americans.
  • Authored legislation to strengthen the Second Amendment rights of Americans by allowing interstate firearms sales.
  • Led 31 states in District of Columbia v. Heller where the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a ban on firearms in a 5-4 landmark decision.
  • Argued against unreasonable and burdensome gun restrictions before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
  • Recognized by NRA executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre who observed, "Ted Cruz is one of our nation's leading defenders of the Second Amendment. For over a decade, Ted has fought tirelessly to defend our constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and his leadership was absolutely critical to our major victories before the U.S. Supreme Court."
U.S. Sovereignty
  • Fought and won a landmark ruling for U.S. sovereignty in Medellin v. Texas at the U.S. Supreme Court against 90 foreign nations and the President to ensure the supremacy of U.S. legal system against encroachment by international treaties and rulings of the “World Court.”
  • Cosponsored a resolution urging the president not to sign the UN Arms Treaty, which would have subordinated the Second Amendments rights of American citizens to global interests.
Government Overreach
  • Called for a special prosecutor to investigate the targeting of conservatives by the IRS.
Stronger, Safer America
A safer, stronger America safeguards freedom at home and across the globe. That’s why Ted Cruz has fought tirelessly to defend our nation’s servicemen and women, to restore America’s leadership in the world, and to secure our border and streamline our legal immigration system.
  • Opposed the Obama Administration's dangerous deal with Iran that would allow Iran to pursue nuclear weapons. 
  • Spearheaded legislation passed unanimously by Congress and signed by the President to prevent known terrorists from entering the United States as ambassadors to the United Nations. 
  • Successfully pressured the Obama Administration to lift its unprecedented FAA ban on flights to Israel after exposing the move as, in essence, an economic boycott of our strongest ally in the Middle East. The ban was lifted within 36 hours of the Senator's actions
  • Championed the Expatriate Terrorist Act to prevent Americans who join ISIS from returning to the United States to commit acts of terror at home. 
  • Introduced legislation passed by the Senate to provide rewards for information leading to the arrest of Hamas terrorists responsible for the murder of American and Israeli teenagers. 
  • Led the charge on a bipartisan resolution passed by the Senate to condemn Hamas' use of civilians as human shields. 
  • Authored legislation to allow victims of the Fort Hood terrorist attack to be awarded the Purple Heart and appropriate benefits. 
  • Joined Texas and 25 other states in a lawsuit to stop President Obama's illegal executive amnesty.
  • Authored legislation to triple the size of the U.S. Border Patrol. 
  • Authored legislation to streamline and simplify our legal immigration system by consolidating segmented visas, creating real and transparent caps, eliminating the diversity visa lottery, and treating all immigrants equally by eliminating the per-country caps. 
  • Urged the strictest enforcement of laws punishing those with prior felony convictions who entered the country illegally in a U.S. Supreme Court Brief in Lopez v. Gonzales.
  • Authored legislation to ensure that members of our military deployed to combat the spread of Ebola is entitled to the same tax benefits as those serving in a combat zone. 
  • Promoted the strengthening of existing law to prevent discrimination or retaliation against military service members who appropriately express their religious faith. 
  • Represented more than 3 million veterans before the U.S. Supreme Court in Salazar v. Buono, defending the constitutionality of the Mojave Desert Veterans Memorial. Along with co-counsel Kelly Shackelford of the Liberty Institute, then-Solicitor General Cruz fought for The American Legion, The Veterans of Foreign Wars, The Military Order of the Purple Heart, and the American Ex-Prisoners of War. In April 2010, the Supreme Court handed down a 5-4 decision in favor of the veterans. 
  • Defended the constitutionality of the federal Solomon Amendment, which requires universities receiving federal funds to grant U.S. military recruiters equal access to campuses, notwithstanding the universities’ opposition to the military’s policies concerning sexual orientation.
  • Authored legislation to close a loophole in the federal “Motor Voter” law that preempts states from enforcing requirements that would ensure those registered to vote are U.S. citizens. 
Life, Marriage, and Family
Without life, there is no liberty. And ensuring every child is born into a home with a loving family provides the best chance for that child to achieve anything. That is why Ted Cruz has been on the front lines defending life and standing up for marriage when it has come under assault from activist judges.
  • Led the charge on behalf of 13 states to successfully defend, before the U.S. Supreme Court, a federal law that bans one form of late-term abortion, the Partial Birth Abortion Act.
  • Advocated for an investigation into abortion practices in the U.S. to prevent the atrocities witnessed in Kermit Gosnell’s facility from ever happening again.
  • Joined 18 states in successfully defending the New Hampshire parental-notification law before the U.S. Supreme Court.
  • Successfully defended in federal court Texas's Rider 8, which prohibits state funds for groups that provide abortions.
  • Fought for the right of states to define marriage, without intrusion by unelected federal judges, by drafting the State Marriage Defense Act.
  • Defended Texas’s marriage laws when a renegade state court attempted to grant a divorce to a same-sex couple that had obtained a civil union in Vermont.
Jobs and Opportunity
The American Dream — the idea that anyone, through hard work and determination, can achieve anything — is under assault like never before. Obamacare, an overreaching federal government, and out of control spending threaten the ability of small businesses and entrepreneurs to create jobs and innovate. This has to stop and Ted Cruz has led the way to bring back jobs, growth, and opportunity to America.

  • Authored the Obamacare Repeal Act as his first piece legislation. 
    • Led the fight to defund Obamacare -- the largest regulatory challenge facing our nation that has resulted in killing jobs, cutting workers' hours, and causing millions of Americans to lose their doctors or health care. 
  • Authored legislation to end taxpayer dollars subsidizing corporate fat cats, including the Ex-Im Bank. 
  • Opposed the Renewable Fuel Standard ethanol subsidy.
  • Co-sponsored the Enhancing Educational Opportunities for All Act to expand school choice and make a quality K-12 education more accessible and affordable to low-income parents and students. 
  • Authored legislation to expedite liquefied natural gas to support jobs, economic growth, and to stand united alongside our friends and allies in the face of Russian aggression. 
  • Led the fight against regulating the Internet as a public utility because it threatens the Internet as a haven for entrepreneurial freedom and unlimited opportunity. 
  • Set an early, high standard for meaningful Republican opposition to increasing the debt ceiling.    
    • Demanded a 60-vote threshold vote on a clean debt-ceiling increase in February 2013, when Republican leadership wanted to allow the Democrats to raise the limit with a simple majority vote.   
    • Insisted on a commitment from Democrats and Republicans in the Senate that the debt ceiling would not be increased as part of a deal to pass the budget .
  • Introduced the American Energy Renaissance Act to spur economic growth by harnessing our nation's energy resources and removing federal impediments to energy exploration, development and trade and empowering the private sector to create good-paying, American jobs. 
  • Sued the federal government to strike down portions of the Medicare Prescription Drug program as an unconstitutional intrusion in the sovereign authority of the States.
  • Opposed the Obama Administration’s Interior Department's moratorium on offshore exploration in the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Urged the U.S. Supreme Court to hear a case and reverse a decision of the D.C. Circuit upholding congressional authority to halt commercial development of private property because of the presence of a purely intrastate species of Arroyo toads.

GOP Surrender Tactics

"In 2010, we were told that Republicans would stand and fight if only we had a Republican House. In 2014, we were told that Republicans would stand and fight just as soon as we won a majority in the Senate and retired Harry Reid. In both instances, the American people obliged. Now we’re told that we must wait until 2017 when we have a Republican president.

Like Charlie Brown and the football, this disconnect explains the massive frustration with Washington. The American people do not believe Republicans will actually do what we say we will do."

Senator Ted Cruz, excerpted from the

Mitch McConnell and John Boehner must, no, MUST BE REPLACED! This message needs be shouted from the mountaintops. The GOP establishment in Congress is surrendering its Constitutional power and authority to the Obama regime once again. If the GOP establishment won't step up and defund Planned Parenthood and pass the pain capable abortion ban, they have no reason to be in Washington DC. If Barack Obama sees fit to shut down the government over his anti-life agenda, so be it. These so-called Republican leaders have shown they are only in Washington, DC for the cocktail parties and lobbyist kick backs. Call your Senators and Representatives at (202) 224-3121 and make it clear that they must not cave to the Obama regime.

Senator Ted Cruz wrote about this same thing in an op-ed for today. He has continued to issue a clarion call on why our government is broken and his is the only clear voice in Washington, DC willing to do so with logic and facts. This must not be discounted. An elected official willing to do what he said he'd do is rare. Senator Cruz is not afraid to keep his word to his constituents.

Sen. Cruz has dubbed these people the Washington Cartel. A more true statement about the state of government has not been uttered. The current crop of surrender first Republicans, in the Senate especially, serve only to feather their nest. They espouse conservative ideas when they run for Senate to differentiate themselves from the uber-leftist Democrats. No Republican runs while saying they are an establishment moderate squish. Once they win, they then sell their soul to the Cartel and do nothing to change the system, to drain the insect infested swamp. This must be stopped. We must make know that spineless activity by Republicans serves to earn them a primary challenge every time.

This only serves to steel my resolve to do my part to get this good and humble man, Senator Ted Cruz, elected as our next President. We have not had a principled leader in almost 30 years. The time is now. There are only 131 days until the first primary event, the Iowa caucuses. Four weeks after that, Super Tuesday happens. If you believe in Constitutional government and government restraint, Senator Cruz is the only one to trust to deliver on his promises. A Cruz administration would give a country suffering from governmental anaphylaxis, a needed epinephrine injection. Then the real work of actually reforming and shrinking the overarching federal Leviathan could start.

As Senator Cruz says, if you want to fiddle around the edges and manage Washington, he ain't your guy. If, on the other hand, you want to restore liberty, respect faith, restore and strengthen our allied relationships around the world, reduce government regulations that stifle business and productivity, reform the over reaching Supreme Court with the appointment of Constitutional jurists, and strengthen our military in order to keep this country safe, I urge you to support Senator Cruz. Senator Cruz has never supported amnesty for illegal aliens. Every other candidate has had to change their position to fit the campaign. Senator Cruz is the best candidate on all constitutional issues, including the Second Amendment. Barack Obama ran a campaign of cotton candy "Hope and Change" in order to pull the wool over the eyes of the masses. Senator Ted Cruz is running a morally upright campaign of consistent conservatism in order to restore the promise of America.

I Watched the Whole GOP Debate. Here Are My Thoughts.

Senator Ted Cruz having a discussion with the #CruzCrew

This is going to be a bit of a stream of consciousness exercise. I am tired of the media and the Washington DC cartel trying to pick our presidential candidates for us. I rant and rave about this because it is important. Our country has been sliding toward ruin under both Republican and Democrat leadership. Outside of one 8 year presidential term from 1981 until 1989, every single president since John F. Kennedy was assassinated has been about managing the decline of the greatest country in the world. Without Ronald Reagan's leadership, who knows how bad off we'd be. He ushered in the only true growth in the American economy in the last 40 years. He was given much worse than any president in recent history and was able to right the ship.

I watched every minute of the Republican debate on Wednesday, September 16th. I was amazed at the lack of time give to some of the strongest candidates on the stage. I'm going to try to go over what my thoughts on all of the people on the stage were. We'll start from stage right to stage left.

Rand Paul:
I really want to like Rand. I do. He just comes of as too out there. I love most of his domestic agenda issues and his liberty driven attitude but I think he may be too naive in terms of foreign policy. He is also a disjointed speaker and speaks in too many anecdotes. I think we need a stronger voice for our country on the world stage. He comes off as angry for the sake of being angry. We need a happy warrior. All this being said, I would vote for him if he was our party's nominee.

Mike Huckabee:
I love Mike's passion for his faith but I think he sees government as the answer to too many of our problems. I like his tax plan but I hate that he wants to use the government to shape thoughts and ways of living. That's not to say that religious liberty doesn't need defending, but my defense of religious liberty would more less government, not more.  His record in Arkansas is also one of a moderate on fiscal issues and we can't have another big domestic spending president. I would vote for him if he was the nominee.

Marco Rubio:
I want to be able to support Marco because I like most of his foreign policy ideas. The thing that puts a burr in my saddle about Rubio was his willingness to surrender to the DC cartel on immigration and border issues. He sold his constituents out when he got to the Senate, all in the effort to curry favor with the leadership of the DC cartel. He made good points on many issues and he would be better than a blatant commie like Komrade Sanders or Monica's ex boyfriend's wife. I would vote for him if he was our nominee.

Ben Carson:
Dr. Carson is a very inspiring man. If I had to choose one person on that stage to sit and learn more about, he would be that man. His career in medicine is flat out legendary. He was THE preeminent pediatric neurosurgeon in the world while he was practicing. Here's where the "but" comes in. I don't think he has the temperament to lead the most powerful country in the world. With all of the damage done by the current leadership regime, we need someone with grand ideas of empowering the American people on his first day in office. There can't be any on the job training when taking the reigns on January, 20th 2017. We need a Constitutional leader. Again, if he were to win the nomination, I would support him.

Donald Trump:
While I like what the Donald has done to help break down the politically correct walls around presidential politics, I think his campaign is a giant dumpster fire. Frankly, he is leading people on with his "We'll be so great, we'll be so strong, you'll get tired of winning" line of horse manure. Government must be reigned in. He speaks of no such thing. He has held more positions on more issues that there are issues to have positions on. I can tell you that I have never(not once, EVER) identified as or with the Democrat party. He, understandably, has played both ends against the middle in the course of his business career because the current system tends to dictate being two faced with local and state government officials. Great for a real estate tycoon. Not so spiffy when it comes to running the free world. I want to know that a president is going to follow the constitution when acting. Congress must be the body to write law. We've had enough of the Executive branch making everything up as they go along. To be truthful, I would really have a hard time voting for Mr. Trump if he is the nominee of the Republican party. Who knows what we would get? Would I vote for a Democrat? NO. Would I write in a can of Coors Banquet? Maybe.

Jeb Bush:
Jeb, or Yeb, to his friends, is a candidate that I would not support if he was our nominee. His positions on immigration and common core preclude me from supporting him. He is everything that is bad about his brother and dad and very little of the good. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if we want someone to manage the decline of the country, a Democrat will get it over a lot quicker. Jeb Bush cannot be our nominee.

Scott Walker:
I like Governor Walker. I think he is a decent man. I like his results in Wisconsin. I don't like his pandering to the corn lobby when he spoke to the over subsidized farmers in Iowa earlier this year. He tends to evolve on issues after having his position called into question. To his credit, more of his evolution has occurred in the right direction. I love his fighting spirit and I think he would be a decent president. His stand against the government union thugs in Wisconsin is one of the most admirable things done by any governor in the United States in a long time. I would vote for Governor Walker if he was the nominee.

Carly Fiorina:
After much thought and study, I have come to the conclusion that Carly Fiorina a less offensive version of Donald Trump in a skirt of pantsuit. While she has a great command of the issues, I question her sincerity on every issue she speaks about. She has praised Hillary Rodham Rodham(Clinton) in the past. She was a huge proponent of John McCain (possibly the worst presidential candidate in a half century). After an in depth study, I've come to the conclusion that sh is a grifter. She is the only other candidate, other than Donald Trump to have been divorced and frankly, she discarded her first husband like yesterday's trash. She has a mistaken and less than Constitutional view of many issues including the 14th Amendment, insofar as her position on immigration and birthright citizenship goes. Would I support her as our nominee? Maybe.

John Kasich:
Ugh...Even writing about this mealy mouthed squish makes my head hurt. John Kasich is THE WORST Republican running for president. He is a politician's politician. He loves government and loves spending other peoples' money in order to be "compassionate". Vomit. No other candidate makes me want to stab myself in the ear when he speaks like the son of the mailman does. His positions on the Iran Deal, Common Core, Obamacare/Medicaid expansion, Immigration and almost everything else make me sick. I would not vote for a presidential candidate, outside of maybe the Coors Banquet can write in, if he were our nominee. I would also drop my Republican party affiliation if he were to win the Republican nomination. Only one person running makes Jeb Bush look decent and it is John Kasich. Ohio can keep him.

Chris Christie:
Krispy Kreme (did I say that, what do the kids say...sorry, not sorry) Christie is an interesting case study in establishment politicians. He sounds great in many sound bites. He is quick witted. He is also governor of one of the most over regulated and over taxed states in the Union and he has an absolutely crazy leftist state legislature to deal with. On the other hand, he has done little to combat those nut ball leftists in the state house in Trenton. I think he would be a good Secretary of State but he is weak on issues of liberty. He, like Governor Huckabee, defers to government too much. His little guy, middle class adovcate schtick sounds good but he has little to show for it. Would he be better that a Democrat? Yes, but only marginally. Would I vote for him? Probably with a clothes pin on my nose.

You may think I left someone out. I did not. Jake Tapper didn't want to give this man a chance talk. If you watch the Q&A session at the Heritage Action Presidential Forum from September 18th, you'll see why. This man is honest and is the most consistent and Constitutional candidate running. If you've read my writing, you'll know who I'm referring to. That man is Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz:
Read his resume. This man puts the fear of God in the Washington Cartel because he doesn't play nice with them. While Jake Tapper tried to shut him out, every answer he gave during the debate was spot on and when Jeb Bush tried to tangle with him on the issue of Supreme Court Justices, he showed why he is the most qualified to lead this country. Outside of keeping this country safe, the appointment of Supreme Court Justices will be the biggest task for the next leader of our country.
You might ask about compromising and getting things done in DC. I don't want someone to compromise. I want someone to win, not by compromising, but by showing Americans that we can and will do better. Ted Cruz is joyful in his defense of liberty and the principles that made our country the greatest ever to exist. I want to bludgeon our political opponents and make it hard for them to do the wrong thing, whether that be the establishment GOP squishes or the commies on the left side of the aisle.
Ted Cruz is right on education, national defense and how to deal with radical Islamic terrorism, immigration, healthcare reform, and all issues that deal with restoring liberty and Constitutional governance to the swamp that is Washington DC.
After having the opportunity to attend the Senator's Rally for Religious Liberty, I was more convinced that ever that he is a once in a generation candidate. I've seen him interact with everyday folks, up close. I've seen him introduce his daughters to other kids. I've seen the way his daughters run to him when they see him. He is a good and decent man. I've never had the chance to vote for a true conservative until now. Nobody, for that matter, has since 1984.
Another thing that makes this decision easier is who is supporting Senator Cruz. A SuperPAC led by David Barton of Wallbuilders is supporting the Senator. Gun Owners of America has already endorsed him. Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center has endorsed him. With Rick Perry dropping out, I also expect the full force of the Texas conservative machine, led by the amazing Greg Abbott, to be behind the Senator.
Finally, I can tell that Ted Cruz is a man of his word. He has taken all the slings and arrows that the statists in DC have thrown at him and still stands for Americans of every stripe. He doesn't pander to groups or play identity politics. He talks to individuals. The individual is the only minority that matters in a Constitutional Republic.

I'm here to say that I have signed my commitment card to volunteer with the #CruzToVictory campaign. I invite all of you to do the research and stand behind a candidate that you can support. I hope that candidate is Senator Cruz.

Check out the new ad just released by the campaign. Also check out Ted's appearance at the Heritage Action Presidential Forum here. His remarks at that Forum are amazing.
