Senator Ted Cruz has taken a lot heat for the actions of his campaign in Iowa. I complained a lot too. I think the issues occurred at a management level without Senator Cruz’s direct instructions. The mailing of the “voter violation” mailer is pure direct marketing technique: use official looking mailings to get higher open rates and higher response rates. It’s a common practice. The fact that they jumped on Carson’s announcement that he was returning to Florida as an announcement that Carson was dropping out is a little more troubling: they should have verified the information. Campaigns are organizations in which people work hard to get their candidate more votes, however, ethical behavior needs to be paramount: mistakes can create a lot of collateral damage. Hopefully Cruz has addressed the people responsible.
Of the GOP candidates, Ted Cruz is my second choice behind Donald J. Trump. I read an article by a young blogger named Markeece Young, a fellow North Carolinian, saying that he was turned off hearing Trump speak after introducing him at a dinner. I would ask Markeece to do two things. First, consider the timeline. Trump is not a politician; at least he hasn’t been up to now. He’s learning a lot really fast. The reasons you gave for not liking his speech are personal opinions, not that Trump’s facts were wrong. I’ve never heard him say that Mexicans were rapists and murders, and I’ve listened to a lot of his speeches and events, including his announcement saying he was running: what he says is that SOME ILLEGAL immigrants are rapists and murders, a fact which is undeniable. I watched Trump’s event live yesterday from New Hampshire and he was much more Presidential in his speech than when he announced. However, personal feelings aside, his ability to deliver the fix we need for this country should be, as it has been since he decided to run, the deciding factor. Separate the person from the policies. Read “Crippled America” and read his policies on his website.
For those thinking Donald Trump is not conservative enough, reading “Crippled America” will change your mind: he details a lot of specifics like cutting/killing the DOE, EPA, IRS, support for 2A, etc.
The second thing I’d ask Markeece to do is to read Dr. Anthony Napoleon’s books: The Progressive Virus, A Look Inside the Playbook, and the big 500 page tome, Shadow Men. Markeece has an audience I don’t have: that audience needs to know what’s happened to this country since the 1960s has been planned and executed with a precision that rivals NASA building a satellite in a “clean room”. Americans, especially black Americans, have had the history of this country hidden from them and have been lied to so as to leave them pride-less in this nation. Christians have been directly targeted as have white males (ever wonder why white males, especially fathers, are made to look like stupid imbeciles in most commercials and modern TV shows). Markeece, even if you don’t agree with my arguments here, you will be much more effective in your endeavors after reading Dr. Napoleon’s books, they’re eye opening, especially for young people – there’s a lot about American history that you’ve never been taught.
I’m glad that Trump and Cruz seem to be over Iowa and are toning down their sparring: it only helps Rubio and the Democrats if they fight each other. We need a solid, coalesced set of front runners to beat the “Red Queen” or “Bernie the Communist“. I think one reason Trump made a big deal out of it is to send a message to other states that they better run their primaries honest and the same to the other candidates.
I look at Trump like a “bunker buster” bomb – we have so much “political establishment” and downright “criminal tentacles” to break through we need someone like Trump to do it. Then, after Trump, a perfect conservative candidate would be nice.
I’m still bothered by Cruz’s wife’s association to Goldman Sachs and the Council of Foreign Relations.
Like I said, Cruz is my second choice and I’ve written a few articles detailing why I think Trump is the better choice.
And some mention in this article too:
