I keep telling myself I should write a blog post to explain my endorsement of Ted Cruz. I keep thinking I should link a few of the excellent articles about him, and then explain my thinking on the many different items that I’ve weighed in my consideration, all of them bringing me to the conclusion that I really really want Ted Cruz to be the next President.
But you know what it is, mostly? I’m just too damned TIRED to want to have Marco Rubio as President.
I’ve been fighting against the President and the Senate and the House for more than 10 years now. My politcal involvement for more than a decade has been about stopping government from doing bad shit.
I’m just exhausted from that.
I don’t WANT to have to fight Marco on immigration. I don’t WANT to have to fight Marco on NSA wiretapping, civil rights for college students,, sugar subsidies, crony tax credits, or the millions of other things he and his cohorts will come up with to “help us”.
Why can’t we get a guy that we can fight WITH rather than AGAINST?
Imagine fighting WITH Ted Cruz to wind down mandates and subsidies, to ensure protections for innocent Americans and expanded capabilities to pursue bad guys – with proper court authorization.
Imagine having the “unknown crazy stuff” that comes up filtered through the Constitution before a solution is proposed or approved.
I don’t have the time right now to link articles and properly source my allegations. I don’t have the time to find a pretty picture for this post on my crappy blog.
I don’t have the TIME or INCLINATION to fight to get some guy elected and then have to fight against him once he’s there. You know we’ll have to do that with Rubio. How much crap has he already done that we fought against, or cheered when it didn’t happen, or should have fought against?
Can’t we just have a chance to fight to get someone elected, and then…be HAPPY once we succeed?
I’m too tired to support Marco Rubio. But for Ted Cruz, I’m ready to fight!
