FLASHBACK: Why was Marco Rubio nowhere to be found on defunding Planned Parenthood? TED CRUZ FOR PRESIDENT!

Since bronze is now the new gold and since Fox News and others in the establishment have hyped up Marco Rubio’s third place finish in Iowa to such a dramatic level, all eyes are now on the Florida Senator to out perform in New Hampshire beyond what many pundits were expecting just a few weeks ago.

The only problem is will Rubio convince voters in New Hampshire, which he obviously was unable to do in Iowa, that he has a record to match his tough-talk and rhetoric?

Just like with Donald Trump, once you peel away the surface on this guy and strip away all the fancy speeches, this is a man who has a very shallow conservative record and has been largely missing in action on the most important issues that we all care about.

Putting aside the fact that he was one of the chief architects of amnesty in the Senate and fought tooth and nail to oppose all of Cruz’s and Session’s amendments to block it, Rubio still must answer for being absent during many of the crucial battles against this administration’s destructive agenda.

Take the battle to defund Planned Parenthood for example! Where was Rubio on that issue? During a time when those repulsive videos came out exposing PP officials for selling baby body parts, Marco Rubio was one of the few Republicans who was completely absent on the vote to defund that horrible organization! Read below!

When we really could have used another ally in the Senate to join Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul to stop all federal funding to the nation’s largest abortion mill, Marco Rubio decided he had more important things to do! It was apparently too much to ask for this supposed pro-life Senator to fight his own party and this administration to save the lives of these unborn children and to protect the taxpayers from having to fund their deaths!

Once again, talk is cheap! Actions speak much louder than words on the campaign trail! This is a little reminder to us how important it is to look at a candidate’s actions and record during the most important battles of our time!

I’ve always said that the best and most accurate way to know if a candidate is a true conservative or not, is to take a long look at their record! The record and the past actions and views of a candidate, will tell you everything you need to know about whether you can trust that person in office!

The problem with far too many conservatives is they seem to only focus on the rhetoric during campaign season as opposed to the actions of these folks while serving!

Yes, it is a given that every single one of these candidates will say they are conservative to one degree or another! But as Ted Cruz regularly points out, where were any of these folks when it really counted? Can you point to them ever leading on these issues and fighting the tough battles as opposed to just talking about it?

Where was Trump on defunding PP? Where was Rubio on actually voting to defund it? Where were any of these guys and the one gal when it really mattered?

For one candidate, he actually received an award from Planned Parenthood in the past! That of course is Jerry Falwell Jr’s favorite candidate Donald Trump! I can’t say that Rubio ever received an award from them, but he was absent when it came time to strip them of their money!

If we’re going to nominate someone to be our standard bearer, wouldn’t you naturally expect that nominee to have conservative deeds that match the conservative words that he or she uses during their campaign?

It is time to stop playing games in this crucial nomination process and to start really focusing on the true measure of these people! Let’s go with a candidate who doesn’t just tell us that he’s conservative, but has a consistent track record of fighting for our principles and standing for issues such as Life, Marriage, and our Religious liberties! Someone who has a record of looking out for the tax payers and standing up against the evils of Planned Parenthood!

Let’s go with a candidate who has fought these battles time and time again and has been willing take on his own party to stop this progressive anti-family agenda! Ted Cruz for President! Read below!

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – Deuteronomy 4:29-31 (NIV)

"But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the Lord your God and obey him. For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your forefathers, which he confirmed to them by oath." 3-7-16

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Donald Trump from”Crippled America” (Posted on 3-7-16)

"But then I realized I couldn't stand what I was seeing. I couldn't believe the hypocrisy and inaction of Washington 'insiders' who wanted to keep the gravy train flowing in their direction, while outside the beltway, Americans were suffering and they were rightfully angry about the lack of leadership and creativity. . . . It begins by creating millions of good jobs for hardworking Americans."
