We Can’t Spare Ted Cruz: He Fights

That, of course, is a paraphrase of Lincoln’s answer to critics who demanded he fire Grant after Shilo.  You can say this, that or the other thing about Cruz (and Paul) – but the main thing is that he’s fighting.  He’s doing what the Congressional GOP has pretty much refused to do since Obama became President.  The Congressional GOP is more afraid of how the MSM will characterize opposition to Obama (racist!) than they are of the people…Cruz is putting the fear of the people in to them.  And that’s a good thing.

Obama is the very worst President this nation has ever had (hey, someone even wrote a book about it) – the only rational, patriotic course is to fight him out on every issue.  If by some means this turns against us and the people rally to Obama, then so be it…clinging on to a bit of Congressional power for one more election cycle isn’t worth it if purchased at the cost of our nation.  Fight, fight and then fight some more.  Every issue.  Every vote.  Give nothing.  Shut down the government.  Let Obama and his henchmen know that we’re opponents up and down the line.

    Yeah, Neo, don’t you remember — how the Left signed on to everything Bush wanted to do after he was elected twice? No? Neither do I.

      I remember back in 2007 and 2008 when Nancy Pelosi refused to raise the debt limit unless Bush withdrew from Iraq, clearly an unpopular and erroneous war.

        “…clearly an unpopular and erroneous war….”

        Yet another example of the Left believing that government is nothing more than a popularity contest, and that right and wrong depend on “consensus”. When you dig into the Leftist approach to pretty much anything, you will find a resistance to the very concept of right and wrong, and a belief in relativity regarding pretty much everything.

        They believe that science is a matter of votes, that if enough people arrive at a “consensus” this establishes objective scientific fact. And here we see the belief that the correctness, and morality, of an action is dependent on its popularity.

        But isn’t that what the Ted Cruz and the tea party Republicans are doing with the debt ceiling and Obamacare? They feel the law,though constitutional, is erroneous and unpopular thus they can threaten to crash the US economy unless they get their way.

        Oh, for heaven’s sake: the economy is already crashed. We’re bankrupt, wiped out, weakened – heading for national suicide unless we change. You’re working on the assumption that everything is fine when its not. These are desperate, dark times…no matter how many reality shows are made to distract you and no matter how many times Captain Bullsh** can sing and dance his way across the stage.

        See, that’s the thing — it wasn’t constitutional until Chief Justice Roberts unconstitutionally re-wrote it.

        Boy Mark, do you have your prepper gear ready and crisis garden planted? You would have been one of the people jumping out of their windows during the GREAT DEPRESSION. Times are difficult but we will survive this. Calm down.

      • M. Noonan September 27, 2013 / 2:18 pm

        No, we’re dying as a nation. This is it. We fix this by 2020 – 2024, or the story is told. We’ll break up in to a series of smaller nations as people in, say, North Dakota decide they don’t want to be taxed to pay for abortions and in-State tuition for illegals for California. Bernanke didn’t dare cut even a billion dollars off the monthly money printing – because as soon as he does the complete bankruptcy of all our banks will be revealed. Wal Mart just announced they are cutting inventories just in front of the holiday shopping season. Gallup has been showing unemployment rising all year and the only reason the BLS shows it down is by cutting the labor force participation rate back to 1978 levels. Our debt exceeds our GDP and our debt is growing faster than our GDP. This can’t go on – it has to be stopped and fixed.

        ” You would have been one of the people jumping out of their windows during the GREAT DEPRESSION”

        And you would have been one of the people rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, murmuring “..times are difficult but we will survive this..”

        And BTW, what you call the GREAT DEPRESSION is well on its way to being renamed as the FIRST GREAT DEPRESSION. It was caused by one Leftist ideologue, and this one by another. Funny how those patterns keep repeating themselves, isn’t it? Apply that old one-two of “government should run everything” and “government can fix everything” and the results are always the same.

        But people like you never learn.

        Actually, the chances are very good that you don’t even understand the political philosophy that led to the depressions, and don’t even have an objective allegiance to the form of government you are still supporting, by your knee-jerk emotion-based antipathy to an Other you have been told is always wrong.

        “They feel the law,though constitutional, is erroneous and unpopular thus they can threaten to crash the US economy unless they get their way.”

        Wow—-so many ways to be so wrong in so few words.

        First, it is silly to claim that anyone feels the law is simultaneously constitutional and erroneous.

        Second, you seem caught up in the lie that the Act has been found to be constitutional. One small aspect of the law has been found to be constitutional, IF the penalty for failing to buy insurance is defined as a tax and not as a fine. That is a very narrow ruling, and does not address any of the myriad defects in the Act, which can still be adjudicated. (I never know if your kind knows the truth but just trumpets lies in hopes of establishing them in the public consciousness as fact, or if you are truly ignorant. But just as it doesn’t matter why the skunk lifted his tail, the stink is the same.)

        Third, you sneeringly dismiss the intellectual awareness of the defects of the Act as mere “unpopularity” (Or maybe you are not sneering. Maybe you do see the world as an American Idol contest, with “popular” and “unpopular” being your criteria.) You see, posts like yours always raise the same questions—–are these genuine responses based on a genuine world view, or are they efforts to manipulate perception by using certain words and concepts? But again, there is that skunk thing to remember.

        Fourth, you simply lie when you say there is a “threat” of any kind. Just because you have been told that your beloved Act is threatened by something does not mean that a threat has been made. And you are claiming, falsely, that a threat has been made “to crash the US economy”. Once again, the question—does he believe this crap? Because this lie hinges on another, which is that defunding the Act WOULD “..crash the US economy”. The Republicans have offered one solution after another to fund essential aspects of government while refusing to fund the Act, and it is the Dems who are squealing it has to be their way or the highway. The Republicans are offering solutions and compromises and the Dems are refusing to give an inch.

        Fifth, you seem to be purposely conflating government with “the US economy”. The fact is, diminishing the size, cost and power of the government would do more to spur economic growth and vitality than anything. Yes, to your kind the government IS “the US economy”. To people in the real world, not so much.

        What the Republicans, at least some of them, are doing is taking a principled stand against a runaway bureaucracy that is destroying the US economy, infringing on personal liberty, and subverting our Constitution. They are trying to find a way to rein in this headlong rush toward totalitarianism while still allowing the rest of the bloated federal behemoth to blunder on, till it can be whittled down to a reasonable size and scope. And it is the Left which is challenging them, and us, saying that they are the ones who will inflict damage on the nation if they think they can blame it on the Republicans.

        And judging by your silly screed, they know at least the most mindless of their base quite well.
