Thankfully there will be at least one conservative candidate who actually walks the walk regarding the US Constitution running for President. From CNN about 40 minutes ago:
Ted Cruz is first out the gate.
The first-term senator from Texas will announce that he’s running for the Republican presidential nomination, according to the Houston Chronicle. He will make his official declaration Monday in Lynchburg, Virginia at Liberty University, the largest Christian university in the world.
Cruz, 44, will be the first candidate to formally throw his hat in the ring for what’s expected to be a crowded GOP primary, with more than a dozen high-profile Republicans expressing serious interest in a White House run.
The Chronicle reports that Cruz will go straight to announcing his candidacy without first forming an exploratory committee, according to advisers with direct knowledge of his plans.
Cruz, armed with his trademark ostrich boots and impressive oratory skills, has quickly made a name for himself in the past two years since he started in the Senate, solidifying his brand as a conservative firebrand willing to take on establishment Republicans in Washington.
Thank God at least one real conservative, pro-Constitution voice will be heard for the next year and a half to counter the lying psycho-babble Jeb Bush and the rest of the establishment candidates will be spewing. Whenever they face Senator Cruz in a debate they discover they can not win unless they actually agree with him because he puts the Constitution, the nation, and American traditional values ahead of political expediency. Let us hope he maintains this strong stand as he begins this journey.
