At the end of Thursday night’s GOP debates, Texas Senator Ted Cruz outlined the first five major actions he would take if he were to be elected president in 2016, and he really nailed it with them.
Cruz started off by taking a shot at Barack Obama’s unconstitutional and illegal actions that he’s used to push an agenda that isn’t favored by most Americans, then went after other policy issues that also aren’t highly favored.
“If I’m elected president, let me tell you about my first day in office,” Cruz said. “The first thing I plan to do is to rescind every illegal and unconstitutional action taken by Barack Obama.”
Who doesn’t want that, right? Cruz continued by going after Planned Parenthood and the heinous videos that have surfaced.
“The next thing I intend to do,” he said, “is instruct the Department of Justice to open and investigation into these videos and prosecute Planned Parenthood for any criminal violations.”
I think we all can agree that’s a good idea, but he saved the best for last. His third agenda item would be to end religious persecution from the DoJ and the IRS, both of which have been deliberately targeting Christian Americans over their beliefs.
“I then intend to cancel the Iran deal and, finally, move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem,” he added. “I will keep my word…I will fight to defend liberty because my family knows what it’s like to lose it.”
Amen. Cruz has always been a true statesman, and always kept his word to the American people. It’s really too bad that Fox didn’t give him more face time last night, because I think he would have blown the doors off of the other candidates, especially because he has a track record of doing exactly that. It will be interesting to see how things play out, but I definitely think Cruz is going to be a contender all of the way to the primary.
