Ted Cruz plays the evangelical “all life is sacred” card all the way up to when he sticks it in his pocket and pulls out the “carpet bomb whole cities filled with brown people” card. His love for fetuses is unparalleled in the political world. Ted Cruz will get on his knees every day, ask God for guidance and rule this country by the voices in his head.
As ridiculous as it sounds, that’s exactly the kind of country the idiots who support Ted Cruz want. Jesus should be at the helm. We should disregard the entire constitution except the 2nd and 10th Amendments. Abortion is murder. God wants war. Gay people are the devil.
It’s more than a little bit disturbing. In this recording, leaked to Politico, Ted Cruz is caught pandering to a New York Republican who loves Ted but supports gay marriage. When asked straight out if he would do what he has said or let the matter be, Cruz went right into slippery politician mode. For the entire election cycle, Ted Cruz has vowed to ignore the Supreme Court and make the destruction of gay marriage in America popular. When asked in New York, behind closed doors, the truth came out. Cruz only cares about your money and how much of it you’re going to give him.
Cruz’s statements about gay marriage not being on his agenda are contradictory to his position. His campaign tried to spin it into a 10th Amendment issue, saying Cruz has always supported the rights of the states. If it’s not in the Constitution, it belongs to the states. That’s all well and good when you understand the constitution. Because the Supreme Court sided in favor of gay marriage, having been given the power to rule on all matters of law and equity arising under the Constitution, people in America are just people. Is that really so horrible?
Here’s the transcript of the question and answer:
Can I ask you a question? So, I’m a big supporter. And the only issue I really disagree with you about is gay marriage. And I’m curious: Given all the problems that the country’s facing — like ISIS, the growth of government — how big a priority is fighting gay marriage going to be to a Cruz administration?
My view on gay marriage is that I’m a constitutionalist and marriage is a question for the states. And so I think if someone wants to change the marriage laws of their state, the way to do so is convince your fellow citizens — and change them democratically, rather than five unelected judges. … Being a constitutionalist is integral to my approach to every other issue. So that I’m very devoted to.
So would you say it’s like a top-three priority for you — fighting gay marriage?
No. I would say defending the Constitution is a top priority. And that cuts across the whole spectrum — whether it’s defending [the] First Amendment, defending religious liberty, stopping courts from making public policy issues that are left to the people.” …
“I also think the 10th Amendment of the Constitution cuts across a whole lot of issues and can bring people together. People of New York may well resolve the marriage question differently than the people of Florida or Texas or Ohio. … That’s why we have 50 states — to allow a diversity of views. And so that is a core commitment.
I love how the freedom fighters like Cruz talk about defending the constitution while they vow to shred it.
