This Wordy Wednesday will be dedicated to everyone’s favorite Texan senator and my favorite presidential candidate; Rafael Edward Cruz. I’m inspired by this man in so many ways, and believe in what he stands for. Ted Cruz is the president this country needs.
There is overwhelming bipartisan support outside of Washington that we need to finally secure our borders, enforce our laws, and stop the problem of illegal immigration.
I think the first and principle objective is to repeal Obamacare before it does lasting, fundamental damage to our health care system, to our individual liberty, to the relationship each of us has with his or her doctor.
On the Left, the best and brightest go into politics – Barack Obama is the epitome of the perfect leftist. On the Right, the best and brightest go make money. Very few conservatives want to endure all the nonsense you have to put up with to run for office.
I’m a lot less concerned with Bill Clinton’s escapades decades ago than I am with Hillary Clinton’s consistently wrong record when it comes to foreign policy, when it comes to domestic policy.
I’m always amused when the ‘New York Times’ writes editorials trying to be helpful to Republicans and say, ‘This is the way Republicans can save themselves.’ Look, the ‘New York Times’ disagrees with us. They’re entitled to disagree with us, but it’s not like we should take their advice.
Is it true that the American people are war-weary? Absolutely. We are tired of sending our sons and daughters to distant lands year after year after year, to give their lives trying to transform foreign nations.
The Washington establishment think Republicans win elections by you don’t stand for anything, you keep your head down, you don’t rock the boat. You know what? Every time we do that, we get clobbered in the polls.
It used to be, it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.
It’s not the job of the U.S. military to do nation-building or produce democratic utopias.
I’ll tell you sort of an odd story: My music taste changed on 9/11. And it’s very strange. I actually intellectually find this very curious. But on 9/11, I didn’t like how rock music responded. And country music collectively, the way they responded, it resonated with me.
If you’re looking for someone to go to Washington, to go along to get along, to get – to agree with the career politicians in both parties who get in bed with the lobbyists and special interests, then I ain’t your guy.
Voters are hungry for principled, conservative fighters – because the threat to our liberties from Washington never has been greater.
One of biggest lies in politics is the lie that Republicans are the party of big business. Big business does great with big government. Big business is very happy to climb in bed with big government. Republicans are and should be the party of small business and of entrepreneurs.
It took Jimmy Carter to give us Ronald Reagan.
I think it’s an enormous blessing to be the child of an immigrant who fled oppression, because you realize how fragile liberty is and how easily it can be taken away.
I’ve really had two heroes in my life. My father and Ronald Reagan.
The American free market system is the greatest engine for prosperity and opportunity that the world has ever seen. Freedom works.
You often see in Washington those who disagree you described as stupid or evil. It’s one of the most unfortunate trends of modern political discourse. Portraying opponents as too dumb to know the truth but smart enough and wanting people to suffer.
When my father came over here penniless with $100 sewn into his underwear, thank God some well-meaning liberal didn’t come put his arm around him and say, ‘Let me take care of you.’
I am perfectly happy to compromise and work with anybody: Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians – I’ll work with Martians if – and the if is critical – they’re willing to cut spending and reduce the debt.
I’ve spent the past month in Washington, D.C., and it is terrific to be back in America.
President Reagan stood for conservative principles in a way that brought people together.
