Dear Ted Cruz: You’re a Blatant Liar and an Absolute Embarrassment to this Country

cruz-wasteDear Senator Ted Cruz:

You’re a reprehensible human being.

Whenever I see your face on my television, or flash across my computer screen, a spark of anger begins to build inside me.  I’m convinced if I sat in a room listening to you speak for hours on end, my ears would literally begin to bleed.  Just catching a glimpse of you out of the corner of my eye is enough to bring about a stench of sulfur which seems to metaphorically fill the room.

The only solace I have right now is that you’ll hopefully pull a “Palin” and resign before you first term as Senator is complete.  I cannot imagine having to put up with you for six full years, yet alone multiple terms as a United States Senator.

And you want to be president?  HA!

You can’t even grasp the concept of “telling the truth” when it comes to simple, little things.  You’re so pathetically desperate to pander to the tea party that you’ll say anything as long as it sounds like something they would want to hear, out of fear that if you didn’t, they might choose another “King of the Buffoons.”

Listening to you go on and on about “Obamacare” reminds me of some jaded ex who just can’t let it go.

I honestly don’t believe I’ve seen you give an interview recently where you didn’t bash the Affordable Care Act.  And that’s another thing — if you want people to take you seriously, you might want to start with calling the healthcare law by its more formal name.  When you and your kind continue to call it “Obamacare,” it only goes to show how immature you people really are.

And don’t give me this crap about you being appalled that President Obama “misled” 5% of Americans about keeping their current health insurance.  Before “Obamacare,” nearly 50 million Americans sat without health insurance.  Many were discriminated against because they were unfortunately born with a pre-existing condition.

Besides, why don’t you actually tell the truth about the Affordable Care Act for once?  Hell, how about you start by telling the truth about damn near anything for once.  Have you seen your abysmal Politifact scorecard?  It’s pathetic.  There’s not a single fact-checked statement you’ve made on there about the Affordable Care Act that’s been deemed to be even remotely true.

You’re a blatant liar and the facts back it up.  So if you want to get all high and mighty about honesty, look in the mirror – you’re one of the biggest liars in Washington.

When people ask you what your alternative to “Obamacare” is, do you know how many plans you offer?  None.  Under “Cruz Care” millions of children would be denied health care, millions more would be discriminated against and health insurance companies could continue to sell trash health insurance to consumers, offering next to no actual health insurance.

Despite what your ignorance might tell you, “repeal it” isn’t an alternative plan to the Affordable Care Act.

Heck, even your own party can’t stand you.  And don’t fool yourselves into thinking they don’t like you because you’re “bucking the establishment” and they don’t like that.  They don’t like you because you’ve used your position as United States Senator to setup your 2016 presidential campaign.  You had no desire to ever govern as a Senator, you simply wanted to use that stage to pimp your name out to tea party voters in the hope that by doing so, you’ll snatch the GOP nomination in 2016.

Which is a pointless goal anyway.  Even if you would happen to win the nomination – which won’t happen because you’re a self-absorb sociopath that nobody can stand –  Hillary Clinton would kick your ass anyway.

So please do me, every liberal and even most conservatives a favor — slither back into whatever cave you came from and just go away.

As a Texan, I’m absolutely ashamed that you represent my state.  As an American, I’m embarrassed that you represent my country.

With complete disgust and disdain,
