One more reason to like Ted Cruz.


Well, Ted Cruz is at it again. It’s been said, that you can tell a great deal about a mans character by who his enemies are. The Democrat’s absolutely hate Ted Cruz, and the Republican entrenched self anointed aristocracy elitist leadership hate him even more. In short, Ted pisses off all the right people.

Ted Cruz’s next battle

Ted Cruz is at it again.

Cruz said last fall he wouldn’t raise money for a controversial group attacking fellow Republicans. But the Texas senator has since written a fundraising missive for another conservative group that’s backing the primary challengers to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and others.

This time, the tea party freshman has helped the lower-profile Madison Project, a political action committee working to defeat McConnell and Sens. Pat Roberts of Kansas and Thad Cochran of Mississippi — and prop up other primary challengers in 2014 midterm races. In the mailer, Cruz asks donors to “pull out all the stops” to elect “solid, principled, conservative fighters” who will “not answer to the party bosses in Washington, D.C.”

While Cruz doesn’t single out any candidate by name, he praised the group for recruiting “viable conservative candidates” and pushing them through “every single step of the pathway to victory” in 2014.

“Our nation desperately needs more strong conservative fighters in the Senate … not more moderate, career politicians who will sacrifice principle and compromise with Democrats at every turn,” Cruz writes in the fundraising solicitation. “In short, it’s time to elect some conservatives who won’t run from a fight!”

The letter — which is undated but was provided to POLITICO from a person who received it in the last month — comes after Cruz told GOP senators last October he would not raise money for the Senate Conservatives Fund, another conservative group launching full-throated attacks against GOP senators in their 2014 primary campaigns. Cruz’s decision to avoid fundraising for the group was seen by GOP senators as an olive branch of sorts after the Texan and his colleagues engaged in an acrimonious battle over the government shutdown last fall.

But earlier this month, Cruz provoked another fight with his fellow Republicans by demanding a 60-vote threshold to raise the debt ceiling, a move that effectively forced McConnell and the senior GOP senator from his state, John Cornyn, to vote to advance the legislation in the heat of their primary campaigns. Now, the Madison Project is running a Web ad bashing McConnell for his procedural vote on the debt ceiling measure.

Cruz’s fundraising for the Madison Project is the latest iteration of the intraparty war that has consumed the GOP since the rise of the tea party in 2010. While tea party activists argue that weak-willed Republicans are bending to Democrats’ every whim, GOP senators say groups like the Madison Project make it more difficult to nominate electable Republicans who can help the party win the net of six seats necessary to take back the Senate this year.

“It does concern me when conservatives raise money to spend against other conservatives — as opposed to spending money on capturing the nine or so seats that are currently held by Democrats that we really have a great chance of winning,” said Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.).

On Tuesday, Cruz declined to comment when asked about his work with the Madison Project, first walking into the Senate chamber to cast a vote — “I gotta get in here and vote” — and later referring an inquiry to his press office. In an email, Cruz’s spokeswoman, Catherine Frazier, said the Madison Project sent out his letter this year “based on a previous fundraising agreement last year.”

“They are involved in many races, including open seats, as well as advancing the conservative cause on many issues across the country,” Frazier said of the Madison Project, adding that Cruz has no other work scheduled with the group at the moment.

The Madison Project doesn’t have the same kind of resources and notoriety as the SCF — the former had about $295,000 in cash-on-hand through the end of January compared with the $970,000 the SCF had in the bank. But the two groups engage in similar tactics by painting GOP senators as insufficiently conservative on bedrock party principles when they work with Democrats. The group, led by former Rep. Jim Ryun of Kansas, joined Cruz in calling on Republicans to take a hard line against Obamacare during the fight that sparked the 16-day government shutdown last October.

America has been suffering a plague of corrupt law makers. Individuals who insist on passing laws that genuinely do more harm than good, and whose only real purpose for being passed, is to increase the Federal Governments power and extort money out of the average tax payer. Rather than passing more laws, America needs a Congress that will review, and rescind tens of thousands of already existing laws. We need fewer laws, no more, and we need to enforce those laws which we really do need, rather than writing more laws that will get enforced only when it is politically profitable for some political group.

America is the most powerful dynamic economic engine in the history of the world, but it is being slowly strangled by a dearth of draconian needless useless burdensome regulations. It’s citizens are being transformed from citizens into slaves by a overly complicated unwieldy legal system that has literally turned every single American citizen into a criminal multiple times every single day.

Ted Cruz is 100 percent dead on the money when he says.

Our nation desperately needs more strong conservative fighters in the Senate … not more moderate, career politicians who will sacrifice principle and compromise with Democrats at every turn,” Cruz writes in the fundraising solicitation. “In short, it’s time to elect some conservatives who won’t run from a fight!

America is worth fighting for, America’s future is worth fighting for. What America will be in the future will not be decided in the future, but today and the days to come. The only way that America will enter into the slow decline that the Democrats have planned for America, is if we make the conscience choice to not fight for a better, brighter future today.

There are those who believe that the world is over populated, that it cannot support it’s current or projected populations. They believe that we have become overly dependent on technology and that our lifestyle is killing “Mother Earth”. They believe that humanity needs to devolve back to a simple sustainable agrarian society. These people, 90+ percent of them who just happen to be Marxist Democrats are nothing less than modern day Luddites.

Luddite

The Luddites were 19th-century English textile artisans who protested against newly developed labour-saving machinery from 1811 to 1817. The stocking frames, spinning frames and power looms introduced during the Industrial Revolution threatened to replace the artisans with less-skilled, low-wage labourers, leaving them without work.

Although the origin of the name Luddite (/ˈlʌd.aɪt/) is uncertain, a popular theory is that the movement was named after Ned Ludd, a youth who allegedly smashed two stocking frames in 1779, and whose name had become emblematic of machine destroyers.[1][2][3] The name evolved into the imaginary General Ludd or King Ludd, a figure who, like Robin Hood, was reputed to live in Sherwood Forest.[4][a]

Background

The movement can be seen as part of a rising tide of English working-class discontent in the early 19th century. An agricultural variant of Luddism, centering on the breaking of threshing machines, occurred during the widespread Swing Riots of 1830 in southern and eastern England.[7] [b]

Spasmodic rises in food prices provoked Keelmen in the port of Tyne to riot in 1710[11] and tin miners to plunder granaries at Falmouth in 1727. There was a rebellion in Northumberland and Durham in 1740, and manhandling of Quaker corn dealers in 1756. More peaceably, skilled artisans in the cloth, building, shipbuilding, printing and cutlery trades organised friendly societies to insure themselves against unemployment and sickness and sometimes, similar to guilds, against intrusion of ‘foreign’ labour into their trades.[12][c]

The Luddite movement emerged during the harsh economic climate of the Napoleonic Wars, which saw a rise in difficult working conditions in the new textile factories. The movement began in Nottingham on 11 March 1811 and spread rapidly throughout England over the following two years.[13] Handloom weavers burned mills and pieces of factory machinery.
History
Luddite acts 1811-1813

The Luddites met at night on the moors surrounding industrial towns, where they would practise drills and manoeuvres. Their main areas of operation were Nottinghamshire in November 1811, followed by the West Riding of Yorkshire in early 1812 and Lancashire by March 1813.[citation needed] Luddites battled the British Army at Burton’s Mill in Middleton and at Westhoughton Mill, both in Lancashire. Rumours abounded at the time that local magistrates employed agents provocateur to instigate the attacks.[citation needed] Using the pseudonym King Ludd, the Luddites and their supporters anonymously sent death threats to—and even attacked—magistrates and food merchants.
Isolated incidents post 1814

Activists smashed Heathcote’s lacemaking machine in Loughborough in 1816.[14] He and other industrialists had secret chambers constructed in their buildings that could be used as hiding places during an attack.[15]

In 1817, an unemployed Nottingham stockinger and probable ex-Luddite named Jeremiah Brandreth led the Pentrich Rising, which was a general uprising unrelated to machinery, but which could be viewed as the last major Luddite act.[citation needed]

America needs desperately to overhaul it’s legal and regulatory codes, to unleash the American economic engine rather than continue to strangle it with draconian regulations. If the rest of the world cannot or will not keep up, that is not America’s fault, nor is it anything for any American to be embarrassed or ashamed of. Great people do great things, and the entire world benefits from those great things. Great things are never ever accomplished by imposing restriction and burdens on those who will accomplish great things. Great things are never ever accomplished by lowering everyone to the lowest common denominator. Great things are accomplished by great people unshackled from the fears and draconian regulations of modern day Luddites who want to turn the clock back 10,000 years.

America has a future as bright and shining as all the Stars in the Universe… IF that is the future that America decides will be it’s future, as I said before, the future will not be decided in the future, it will be decided today and in the coming days. America’s future does not have to be the 1984 George Orwell dystopian future that the Marxist Democrats are trying to create. It can be as great as we want it to be, but for it to be a great, bright shining future, we have to decide today and in the coming days that that is the future will will create for ourselves.

So yes… Go Ted Cruz, go Rand Paul, Go Scott Walker, and You go girl Sarah Palin… Go right straight to the seats of power, and shake the corruption that has taken root there until it falls to the ground and is carted away as the rubbish it is.
