By now most people are well aware that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced his candidacy for president a few weeks back. While the news came as a shock to almost no one, it did “officially” began the Texas senator’s campaign.
I was actually discussing with a friend the other day how terrifying it is to think of this country with Cruz as president. While I know it will never happen, I’m not exaggerating when I say that just contemplating what it might be like nearly drove me to cold sweats.
But if you want a really good insight as to just how radical Cruz is, look no further than his father, Rafael Cruz. This man, in my opinion, is absolutely nuts. He once claimed that there’s no scientific evidence supporting the theory of evolution, while equating the belief in it to communism.
No, I’m not joking.
He also once said that President Obama was working to “seize” our guns and that liberals were pushing to do away with the Bill of Rights.
This is a man who Ted Cruz often sends out speak on his behalf if he’s unable to attend a certain event. So, basically, when Rafael Cruz says these sorts of crazy comments, they’re endorsed by his son.
Well, during a speech at a tea party event in Georgia, the elder Cruz went off on an anti-Hillary Clinton rant, saying that if she’s elected, we can “kiss this country goodbye.”
“Let me tell you, if we have someone like Hillary Clinton elected in 2016, you might as well kiss this country goodbye, this country’s gone. We are fighting for the survival of America,” he said.
Isn’t this the exact same crap conservatives like Rafael Cruz have been saying about President Obama for the last 6+ years? My question is, how much does the economy have to improve and the United States, you know, not vanish into a fiery oblivion before conservatives start realize these fear-mongering fools are full of crap?
It’s like the nonsense the NRA has been pushing since 2008. Since President Obama was elected, they’ve constantly claimed his administration is out to confiscate guns – and it’s literally never even come close to happening. But that hasn’t stopped millions of conservatives from believing that this mythical gun confiscation is imminent, causing huge spikes in gun and ammo sales – which was the whole point of the NRA pushing their lies to begin with.
It really is like manipulating children. It’s amazing to me that conservatives fail to see how much they’re being played by this fear-mongering from the GOP that almost always promises some apocalyptic sounding nightmare, which ultimately never comes true.
Now that President Obama’s time in the White House is coming to an end, it looks like it’s going to be more of the same old crap from these Republicans – they’re just going to replace “President Obama” with “Hillary Clinton.”
It’s just astonishing to me how dumb Republicans treat their voters, and how eager conservatives seem to embrace those who clearly treat them like they’re absolute idiots.
