Instead, Cruz blasted his fellow Senate Republicans, saying they are most to blame for the failure of the push to defund or delay Obamacare.
“You want to win an election in 2014? Republicans need to stand for principle. And it is the grassroots, organized, that will win elections in 2014.”
That last quote is exactly right. If the Republicans would actually stand up and fight for something…heck, they’d win elections hands down. That’s why I didn’t vote for Romney. That’s why I didn’t vote for McCain. That’s why I didn’t vote for W the second time. They weren’t conservative and didn’t stand for anything I thought. They were “safe” and “safe” loses elections. If we’d get more people like Ted Cruiz and the Tea-Party types to run…wow. I think it might take a couple of wins and a couple of battles well fought (like the House started doing in this most recent shutdown) for people to see they really mean business. But…if that were to happen. Wow. The US would be on the way to moving back towards the country it should be…and back towards the country the Founders envisioned.
