Ted Cruz: Can I Count On You? (You gotta see this)

I received this from FreedomWorks moments ago:


Dear ,

Barack Obama wants to radically transform our country. But we can stop him. I’m working hard to take on the Progressives in Washington and stop Obama’s second term agenda. And to do that, I depend on FreedomWorks and their network of over 6 million activists.

We are in the most important fight of our lives. And I know we can succeed in stopping Obama’s Big Government agenda. We can end ObamaCare before it destroys our health care system. We can protect our civil liberties from government encroachment. And we can put parents back in charge of their children’s education. We can do that, and even more – but your help is urgently needed. If we’re going to win, FreedomWorks needs to raise at least $250,000 in the next 72 hours.

Together, we can stop Obama and his radical transformation of America!

In Liberty,

Ted Cruz


Hey Ted, you get NOTHING from me!

they got $267,981. Well over their goal.

now lets see them end obamacare, protect civil liberties and put "parents back in charge of their children’s education."

hell, lets see them just do ONE of those.

these "we'll fix the world" fundraisers piss me off to no end.. if they're not aiming at a specific target, don't get disappointed when they miss.

on a side note: how is beck affiliated with this organization? he's all over their website. that should be reason enough to stay away.

The state is nothing more than evil people with power.

Would these types of things happen if there wasn't a state? This proves the gov't will manufacture a war until the whole monetary system crashes. There needs to be another justification to continue spending. This is immoral.

note - Matt Kibbee took over for Dick Armey at Freedomworks

he helped Paul supporters at the national convention to try and halt the steam rolled agenda.

In addition, when asked which candidate he liked for President in 2011 this is what he said about Ron Paul on CSPAN.


In addition, Freedomworks has a bunch of Ron Paulers in upper management of the organization.

Holy Sh!t...

...I didn't see that coming.

I have to admit, I haven't thoroughly investigated Ted Cruz's history and track record much, but just seeing the things here in the DP, I had assumed that he was one of us!

Argghh, ok I am disappointed.

Make no mistake, as far as the political process (games) goes, we should take whatever we can, and if he embraces other issues that we are concerned with, then we work with it. It's a game. I like the other stuff he has done.

But I do have to say I am truly saddened and disappointed about this.

Ted Cruz is confused. And whether he realizes it or not, he is going against the Principles of Liberty, and war-mongering here.

I shall be ever more vigilant moving forward. Must keep reminding myself of this. :/

UPDATE: This was in response to this : http://www.dailypaul.com/289095/meet-your-buddy-sen-ted-cruz

Keep your eye on the prize! - Ending legal tender laws in order for the Federal Reserve System to self-destruct is of the upmost importance.

when he writes "in liberty"

I kind of want smack him on his noggin. You can't give a speech about toppling and changing governments overseas, then turn around and sign a document with "in liberty". People like him are going twist the meaning of the word.


Freedomworks is half controlled by a bunch of Ron Paul supporters, Dick Armey left pissed and took money with him.

Just sayin


Tel Teddy to pack-up all of his stuff, sell the house, load the wife and kids up and go kill Iranians HIMSELF -- on his friggin' dime -- if he so committed.

He's turning out to be just another war monger neo-con with no money to pay for endless war.

for some reason

why is always about the benjamins and never PRINCIPLE, exception being
the good Doctor. The rest, mo money,mo money,mo money,mo money - dam
done poured ungodly amounts of cabbage to these finheads and look where
the hell we are elcrappy return on an investment PUKE!

ROI (so far)= ZERO, Cruz!

Well said , gptnomoney.

To be a proven team player in either party, ya gotta raise a lot of money. Sorry, Cruz, not playing their game for ya.

Money anymore is just not the answer, Cruz---

Just do what you say, use your bully pulpit---which we elected you for ---, and it'll all work out fine.

That---we will support.

Like some of you do not trust

Rand, I am not sure if I trust Cruz. Time will tell but my pennies will go to ME in the meantime.
