Evangelical Leaders Refuse to Listen to Ted Cruz

Only lyin Paul Ryan is a bigger hypocrite than Ted Cruz. Once Trump’s greatest enemy, he has become one of Trump’s biggest supporters. Am I the only one who watched Trump virtually call Cruz’ wife, Heidi, ugly? Am I the only one who remembers that Trump accused Cruz’ father of being complicit in the assassination of JFK? Am I the only one who cringed as Cruz campaigned for Trump and praised him for non-existent positive qualities.

Abraham Lincoln is famous for multiple quotes, but one stands out above the rest.

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
Cruz claims to be a religious extremist, but has proven that he is only religious when it is advantageous for his career. He recently appeared at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference. His speech lasted just nine minutes.

“What I want to say to the men and women here are two things: number one, thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for your prayers, thank you for your passion, thank you for your time, thank you for your energy, thank you for speaking out and working to retake our nation,” Cruz said.

Suddenly Cruz realized that he was left with nothing to do but nod and smile; his microphone had been silenced. The conference’s announcer had begun to introduce the next speaker.

Cruz very short speech was given at the same time that former FBI Director James Comey was speaking before the Senate Intelligence Committee in Washington. He gave some ambiguous support for his fuhrer. Cruz called on conservatives to “ignore the political circus” and “focus on delivering results.”

The truth is that the Christian religious right is losing its power over Washington’s GOP politicians. Younger Americans are shunning the Christian religion. They refuse to believe in fantasy and will not accept the teachings of other men instructing them that they must accept doctrine on faith alone. The old, white men in America are facing their demise, and with them the backwards ideology of the Republican Party.

Cruz was so eager to be the president that he began his campaign at the historically early date of March, 2015. In the end, he was so disliked, and even hated, that he lost horribly to the worst candidate in America’s history. Now it appears that Evangelicals are aware of his hypocrisy and failing personal ambitions.

Cruz has been at the top of my ‘remove from office’ list for years. He is another Trump, but with a real education and intelligence. He is a greater danger to America than our current ignorant and illegitimate president.

Beto O’Rourke will challenge Cruz in 2018. He is a charismatic Democrat who has been reaching across party lines in Texas. In very early polls, which obviously have little meaning, O’Rourke is tied with Cruz with a 30 percent approval rating.

Do I dare to dream? After last November’s debacle the answer is a resounding ‘no.’ I’m not a pessimist, but Trump is pushing me in that direction.

Please repost; thank you.
