It appears when I campaigned for him I definitely got the right person. You go Ted and thanks ever so much. You put Constitutional Republic where it belongs - front and center.
Sarah knew what she was doing helping Ted Cruz win the GOP primary! This guy is the REAL DEAL! I just watched his hearing at the gun control Senate hearings today, and WOW!
I have followed, and contributed to him after Sarah gave her endorcement, and each clip makes my smile just gets bigger!
Such a well spoken, true conservative, I just have to keep hopeing he doesn't be shut-up by the GOPE. If so, there will be hell to pay!
For those that want the actual letter, this link provides a download or you can embed http://www.scribd.com/doc/122799297/Letter-from-Senator-Ted-Cruz-to-Chicago-Mayor-Rahm-Emanuel-Bank-of-America-TD-Bank-Group-Smith-Wesson-and-Sturm-Ruger-Co
I would caution everyone to stay away from B of A. They are as left-leaning as can be and will do whateveer their communist leader, Barrack Obama tells them to. the best way to fight them is to withhold funds and business from them. let the Left support B of A on their own while We the People deal with conservative leaning businesses and banks.
You watch the Dems will go on an all out "whatever it costs" attack on Cruz next election cycle the same way they did to Allen West. And lets not forget about Sarah Palin, its not enough for them that she lost the election they had to make sure she was crucified by filing law suit after law suit till she could no longer afford legal defense nor have any time to Govern her State. This is standard operating procedure for them.
You can see these tactics repeated over and over again. Little known story but there was a woman appointed by Bill Clinton (cant remember her name) to head up the CFTC. She became concerned that the new financial instruments that were being used called Derivatives could pose a threat to the Commodities Markets that she was now in charge of. She developed regulations for Derivatives and 2 days before she was going to announce them she received a call from Treasury Secretary Larry Summer (also appointed by Clinton) telling her to cease and desist, which she did, but that wasn't good enough for them. A few months later Larry Summers and the head of the SEC went on a smear agenda to make her look incompetent so that they could then make a law prohibiting anyone from trying to regulate the Derivatives Market.
Now as you will recall when the crash happened in 2008 what did they blame it on? The lack of regulation over the Derivatives Markets. Then came Barney Frank and Chris Dodd with the Dodd/Frank Bill of new financial regulations (Dont get me started on these two).
BTW when Larry Summers called the woman to tell her to stop he tols her he had 13 CEOs of the top Banks in his office raising a fit. Funny how he chose to listen to the Bankers over the head of the CFTC.
Ted Cruz,, really needs to stop inviting blue state people to tx.. it will be a blue state soon enough, with californians ... new yorkers now illinois, ... they dont leave their liberal ways .. they bring it with them... it happened in montana...
I agree, maybe we need to contact him and remind him of that. I don't know why these senators do things like that. Rand Paul is putting up a good fight also. I wish his bill about not sending F-19s to Egypt would have passed today but it didn't. These muslem brotherhood are our enemys and the obama adm is aid and abetting them is called Treason. and whoever voted yes on this today are committing Treason also.. Hope Cruz didn't vote to keep sending them over there. does anyone know. This is what we have to do is check on these senators and congressmen and women and see how they vote.
I have to agree with you. I lived in Houston in the '80s and live in Ga now because am helping my parents get along. After they are gone, I hope to move to far west Texas, please let me in, I promise that my voting and money will back people like Mr. Cruz.
We know from his attack on Chick-Fil-A, that he is an evil anti-Christian bigot. He is similar to the people Adolph Hitler surrounded himself with. Chicago must be a terrible place.
Rock River Arms, Springfield Armory and the rest should move out before Rahmbo shuts them down. Winchester is moving to MS but that was a result of trouble "wit' da union" if you follow me.
The more I read...the more I see.... I really like this guy!!
God Bless you Ted Cruz...you have the "People's support" we stand with you 100%!!
You go get em!!
Rahm Emanuel is a bullying piece of trash! The day will come when someone punches his LIGHTS OUT!! POS!! This is OUR America....We, The People!!!...You Socialist, Corrupt BASTARD!!
Stop buying ANYTHING from companies in Illinois, PERIOD... They are in the tank for BOZO because he came from up there... They have this "STUPID-KCUF" loyalty as they hand-over more of their earnings to this Socialist Regime...
Ted Cruz is one of two new Republicans who won election to the US Senate in 2012 and both are TEA Partyers and very strong conservatives. All of the liberal & "moderate" Republicans lost along with those TEA Party candidates who either screwed up their own campaigns with lame-brain comments or who were sabotaged by the ruling elites of the GOP such as Karl Rove as Mark Levin has often pointed out.
It appears that Ted Cruz is opposing the Gang of Eight's illegal amnesty program which is being championed by Marco Rubio. I admire Marco Rubio but I think he has fallen under the spell of some of the GOP's most notorious "moderates" like McCain and Graham and is being led far astray.
Rubio is very eloquent but history surrounding illegal amnesty doesn't support what he is saying in promoting this failed idea.
With so many illegals going back across the border because of the disaster that is Obamanomics the real issue is not illegals coming here but simply securing our borders to stop terrorists from coming here.
That's what we should be focused on and nothing else!
If you always do what you always did,
You’ll always get what you always got!

Let's hope Texas doesn't encourage too many Liberals to move there, or they will destroy Tx. like they did the states they are moving from.
Double standard, Feinstein can bring guns, Cruz and Grahmnesty denied! http://www.politico.com/story/2013/01/ted-cruz-lindsey-graham-having-trouble-bringing-guns-to-hearing-86909.html?hp=f3
There should be plenty of banks wanting to do that seeing Rick Perry is wanting to refund taxpayers with excess taxes collected! http://ca.news.yahoo.com/texas-governor-excess-tax-money-back-people-224841439.html#
BOA had already stopped doing business with gun sellers. If I had any money in BOA I would withdraw all of it.
As PVG wrote, LEAD BY EXAMPLE, and yes it is important enough to say over and over, and as loud and proud as possible. I wish the letter had been posted so it could be copied and sent to local politicians so they can start to be competitive as the MAN from Texas is being. Often it takes only one brave act for others to see to help stiffen the spines of other potentially courageous people. Too many liberals expect any conservative to automatically back down, or risk being labeled an angry right wing nut job. Bravery like this is a great example to demonstrate that we must not worry about the left hating us, they do. It is a matter of accepting this and fighting on. This is the very reason businesses wanting to move their factories to more friendly states are being harassed and threatened. A hateful person is going to hate no matter what you concede them, no since in losing any when a hater wants it all. Like the wolf who sneak in to steal a sheep, he will not stop with one, he will continue until all is destroyed. It is the same with the evil one; he comes to steal, kill and destroy, being not happy with the destruction of his victims body alone, but wants their soul as well.

Here is the link to his immigration stance
Here is the link to the letter on his Senate site
Thanks Orangeone, I didn't get to this until now but both the letter and the immigration statement were excellent insight to this man's straight forward, common sense driven, and fair way of thinking. Perhaps Texas would be willing to push for his campaign towards something loftier, say in 2016?
I think this needs to happen more. Drive business out of liberal states and those states will collapse as a reward for their stupidity. Once that happens liberals won't have a leg to stand on. Just so long as radicals don't migrate with them. I don't want those idiots infecting my state.
Lol... a good friend of mine also wrote our Senators to make a pitch for Remington and gun manufacturers in NY state to have them come down to reasonable, "gun-friendly" and business-friendly Georgia.
As long as those tards wanna villianize banks or gun manufacturers... no problem. Have them come to the parts of the United states where reason and common sense... and sanity still rule.
Ted Cruz is kicking it... love it!
If the congress passes Federal Gun or ammunition restrictions - how will that be an advantage for gun manufacturing to move to a different state?
Commerce clause and all that stuff? We need to stop the Feds above all.
Agreed... we do need to stop the Fed... 1st off.
I'm encouraging companies to move out of "hostile" states... states that have high taxes, high unemployment, heavy regulations, are not right-to-work, etc. States like Texas and Georgia are VERY business friendly... same with Florida and a few others...
I'd like to see the gun and ammo companies thrive especially since they are unnecessarily being demonized... we'd love to have them here. :)
