Far too many of us just sit back and allow ourselves to be manipulated by the sweet campaign words coming from the mouths of these candidates. It seems as conservatives we never bother to really examine who these people are and to thoroughly scrutinize their records.
You would think that in an election as important as picking our next President, conservatives would do a little fruit inspecting before rushing off to the polls to vote for the next politician who stimulates our senses!
Donald Trump says many of the right things on the campaign trail and he certainly throws out plenty of red meat for his followers to feast on, but has anyone really taken the time to find out if this guy truly shares our values or has ever said these things or believed these things prior to running for the Republican Presidential nomination?
Pastor Rafael Cruz, Senator Ted Cruz’s Father, reminds us in his new book how important it is for Christian conservatives and even non-Christians to check the fruit of our candidates before settling on one individual to vote for. Read below!
It isn’t enough to just listen to campaign rhetoric and believe in empty words, we should expect to see example after example in their lives where they’ve demonstrated a commitment to conservative principles.
For me, that is why I find it so incredibly easy to support Ted Cruz for President! This is a man who doesn’t just tell us that he’s conservative while running for the nomination, there is a consistent track record throughout his entire life and career, of standing for his conservative beliefs and fulfilling his promises!
Very rarely does a candidate come along whose deeds match his campaign words! Ted Cruz is certainly a rare and unique breed in politics today! This is a man who can be TrusTED to do precisely what he promised to do! Why do I say that? Well, because he has done that so many times while serving in public office!
For example, this is a man who ran for U.S. Senate on opposing amnesty for illegals, and unlike Marco Rubio, who made the exact same promises while running for his Senate seat, Ted Cruz actually fulfilled his promises and has since fought along side Jeff Sessions and Steve King to oppose Rubio’s amnesty and to abolish Obama’s illegal executive amnesty!
A little fruit inspecting on Donald Trump on this issue shows that he actually supports a form of amnesty which allows deported illegals to reenter our country and eventually become citizens, which is known as touch-back amnesty! Closer inspection of Trump’s fruit also shows that he has supported a pathway to citizenship in the past and has even hired illegals to build his buildings!
Marco Rubio’s fruit shows him lying on this issue to the voters in Florida to get elected and then quickly within weeks after entering the U.S. Senate joins liberal Democrats like Chuck Schumer to push through full-blown amnesty!
As Pastor Cruz reminds us, it isn’t just what these candidates say that make them conservative, it is what they’ve done or presently do that make it so! Their actions, NOT words only, prove their conservatism! As Senator Cruz likes to often proclaim on the campaign trail: don’t just tell us that you’re conservative, show us!
Take a look at their record, examine their past views, and see for yourself if that person has always been perfectly consistent throughout! If they haven’t, then I would suggest that you pass them up and move to a candidate that has a consistent record of standing for our beliefs and values!
The old saying is right: Talk is cheap! This is a show-me election and I for one am glad that I support a man who has time and time again demonstrated and proven his conservatism and doesn’t just talk about it!
Ted Cruz will always fulfill his promises and he will not let us down! During a time when we’ve been burned by so many politicians in the past and even presently, what a relief it is to know that there is at least one statesman out there, who we can always rely on to fight for our constitutional rights and to stand for our beliefs! That is exactly why I support this man without hesitation or mental reservation!
Reject the phony campaign conservatives and go with the real deal in this primary! Expect more from your candidates and rely less on empty promises from the campaign trail! Ted Cruz for President! Read below!
