Joe Schmuck Calls Senator Ted Cruz

I have not found a Letter to the Editor published in our little-town rag in months. In fact embarrassingly, our little paper hasn’t even updated their online opinion posts since August 2011. I recently opened our weekly newspaper to find hate mail written to Senator Ted Cruz, as if he is going to read our tiny community paper. 

Many of my long-time blog readers know that I was a supporter in the very beginning when Cruz decided to run for the Senate, even co-hosting a US Senate Debate in Garland, Texas.  Politically I am in love with this man, so you can imagine how this diatribe against Cruz got me thinking about what is fueling the hatred.

The writer was complaining that he didn’t like Cruz’s stance on guns and wanted to call and have his voice heard.  He didn’t like that he couldn’t reach anyone at the office and that Cruz’s mailbox was full, and when he transferred to a staff member they didn’t get back to him. 

Is this man on the same planet I am?  The larger than life epic that is Senator Ted Cruz is hot, hot, hot right now.  I don’t think this letter writer understands, dismally encapsulated within his little onedom, that Senator Ted Cruz is a one-man walking conservative band.  Cruz and his staff are receiving hundreds of calls each day and there is no possible way to call everyone back. In fact, it might have been a good idea for this gentleman to do a little research and find out how things work at our esteemed Senatorial offices because he would have known that calls and messages are logged.  When a call to action goes out, hundreds of us call and leave messages on various congressional phone lines. So no Mr. Joe Schmuck, you are not likely to be able to pick up the phone and speak directly to Ted Cruz, Barney Frank, Rand Paul, or even Barack Obama.

So what is it about this man that has so many people launching into a smear campaign?  MSM Politico liberal Evan Thomas calls Senator Ted Cruz a dangerous demagogue. I think they are confusing him with President Barack Obama with his illogical messages and abject hatred of conservatives and Republicans, which I don’t dare group because there is a huge difference between being a Republican and being conservative. I can only guess that many people, including the dribbling idiots at MSNBC, have no clue what a demagogue is.  A quick Google search brought me the following response:

1.    A political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.
2.    (in ancient Greece and Rome) A leader or orator who espoused the cause of the common people.

Many political pundits toss around the word demagogue, stopping at that ‘appealing to popular desires and prejudices’ part of the definition. While it is easy to entertain the notion that anyone providing support of a popular idea holds a certain prejudice about it, what is being left out of the equation is, ‘rational argument’. A statement used in Obama’s first presidential bid brought about the term, ‘bitter gun clingers’ which is a statement that has no rational argument to back it up. This is very dangerous demagoguery because it solicits hatred and fear.  

Senator Ted Cruz is incredibly intelligent, having graduated from the cream of the crop Ivy League schools. He employs rational argument to back up his statements which is not demagoguery as defined, though MSNBC cackling liberal Chris Matthews would have you believe otherwise. MSM calls Cruz a demagogue because they are becoming increasingly afraid of the orbital power and attention he is garnering. 

For their part, MSM is attempting to capitalize on their smear campaign using a few RINO Republicans who are deathly afraid of Cruz's quick rise to power.  Cruz makes them shamefully aware of their inadequacies, such as Senator John McCain who was completely unsuccessful at garnering support for his stale campaign message. So too Cruz's refreshing conservative message glaringly points out that people like John McCain are merely Republican posers.  McCain is not a Maverick, he’s a has-been that should have been put out to pasture a long time ago.

You may not agree with Cruz's stance, but he is the real deal.  Cruz does not merely toss out one-liners just to gain populace accolades, he is a conservative leader who should be feared by the left because his followers walk in tight lock-step with him.  Senator Ted Cruz's political stands are based upon the US Constitution and nothing more. This is the reason so many grassroots conservatives in Texas like myself helped to thrust that message into Washington DC.  

Bible and Constitution haters are scared to death of this man and they rightfully should be. Cruz has gone from relatively obscure to rock star status within a relatively short period of time, and there seems to be no stopping his popularity.
