    TED CRUZ: I NEED A 'GRASSROOTS ARMY' TO DEFUND OBAMACARE, STOP AMNESTY

    TED CRUZ: I NEED A 'GRASSROOTS ARMY' TO DEFUND OBAMACARE, STOP AMNESTY





    by MATTHEW BOYLE
    5 Aug 2013,

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Monday called on America’s grassroots conservative activists to rise up and organize an effort against the Washington, D.C. establishment to defund Obamacare in the upcoming Continuing Resolution (CR) that funds the government and must be voted on by the end of September.

    In his “Freedom Minute” segment he distributes regularly to various media and radio outlets, Cruz said he needs a “grassroots army” to help him fight. He walked through how a year ago last week was the anniversary of him winning the GOP primary in Texas for U.S. Senate against all odds because of the grassroots support he received.

    “Today I work for 26 million Texans, and your support is why I'm serving in office helping lead the fight to protect the Second Amendment, to secure the border, and to unshackle the free market economy,” Cruz said.

    “Now we need to activate another grassroots army--this time on a national scale. In September, Congress will have the opportunity to defund Obamacare--the disastrous health care law, which is killing jobs and hurting the health care system. The only way we can win this debate is if the American people rise up and demand it. Please join us and let your representatives know where you stand.”

    GOP Establishment in Full 'Crush Ted Cruz' Mode Because He Says "No" Posted on September 17, 2013 by Common Constitutionalist
    I was flipping through news channels Sunday morning and happened upon MSNBC and a discussion of Sen. Ted Cruz. Okay, I didn't just happen upon it for I usually avoid it like the plague, but Fox was discussing some pop-culture nonsense. There was a discussion panel with four liberals and one former George H. W. Bush progressive consultant. He was both progressive and black, so it was okay. They were discussing Ted Cruz and naturally there was no love in the room. They allowed the "Republican" consultant plenty of time to trash Ted. He (the Republican) said he was more of a Chris Christie Republican. That's really all you need to know about him. He described Ted Cruz as being a closed tent conservative. How Ted Cruz harkened back to a different era in America and apparently that is never a good thing — to look back, unless of course you're looking back to FDR or LBJ. The consultant wants the party to be constantly looking "forward." That's what good progressives do, don't you know. One of the libs chimed in saying that Cruz is satisfied to "just say no" to every initiative. That he is only interested in shrinking government. Oh the horror! Let's think about this. Why is it so misguided for Ted Cruz to "just say no" to government expansion? Why is it wrong for us, the citizens, to "just say no" — we won't allow you (the government) to do that? After all, that's what the government has been telling citizens year after year for more than a century. Picking winners and losers, restricting our behavior, just saying no! The Black Panthers clearly obstructed voting places. The government's case was open and shut. Eric Holder stepped in and just said no. We don't prosecute blacks. Yet he said yes to throwing fuel on the Trayvon fire. Automobile companies would love to produce cars and trucks people want. The feds say, Oh no you don't. Mandated CAFE standards take care of that. By 2025 the average fuel efficiency standard is set to increase to 54.5 mpg. I hope you like papier-mâché cars. If you have a family farm, don't try to sell your wares locally or you will prompt the agriculture department to "just say no." You are somehow violating interstate commerce laws. But the crown jewel of "just say no" has to be the EPA. Want to build a coal-fired power plant to provide communities with cheap abundant energy to grow the economy? The EPA says no way. In fact, they'll just shut them all down. Want to build a new refinery? Nope. How about a nuclear power plant? Nada. An oil pipeline? No chance. How about a wind farm that blights the landscape and kills all the birds? Oh, that's okay. People like that conservative icon David Brooks is heralded for calling Ted Cruz an obstructionist yet has he or any liberal ever examined the most obstructionist, just say no, entity in the nation — our own government? If you asked them, I'm sure they will "just say no."

    Someone needs to make Cruz define AMNESTY! FAST! You need to go back and read his 'on the issues', etc. He has ALWAYS been for legalizing all the illegal aliens here..THAT IS AMNESTY!

    "Asked about what to do with the people here illegally.... he stressed that he had never tried to undo the goal of allowing them to stay.


    “The amendment that I introduced removed the path to citizenship, but it did not change the underlying work permit from the Gang of Eight,” he said during a recent visit to El Paso. Cruz also noted that he had not called for deportation or, as Mitt Romney famously advocated, self-deportation.
    Cruz said recent polling indicated that people outside Washington support some reform, including legal status without citizenship.....THAT is a flat out LIE!

    Cruz has proposed increasing the number of green cards awarded annually, to 1.35 million from 675,000. He also wants to eliminate the per-country limit that he said left applicants from countries like Mexico, China and India hamstrung when they tried to gain legal entry to this country." (HE wants to INCREASE WORK visas! and THAT is a flat out LIE, because
    Mexico sends more legal entries than ANY ONE!)

    Want to make people angry? Lie to them.
    Want to make them absolutely livid? Tell 'em the truth."
