Sen. Ted Cruz announces presidential run
to champion conservative groundswell!
August 24, 2015
Saying "it's now or never," Sen. Ted Cruz told Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity on Monday that he made the official announcement of his presidential run because "it's time to start making the case. "
In giving his first interview as an official candidate to Hannity, Sen. Cruz of Texas touched on his key issues of repealing and replacing Obamacare, cutting spending and instituting a "simple flat tax."
"We've got to change what we're doing," Cruz said. "You know, I think there is an urgency to what we're facing in politics that's unlike anything you or I have ever seen before … I don't think we've reached the point of no return yet, but we are close."
On foreign policy, Cruz said the fight against the Islamic State (ISIS) should include arming the Kurds as the primary "boots on the ground." He also favors arming Ukraine and keeping U.S. treaty commitments rather than getting into a "shooting war" with Russia.
Aware that not everyone is happy with his candidacy, Cruz said "when The New York Times says that the Washington elites despise me, my only question is: Do I have to disclose that as an in-kind donation?"
The mainstream media paints Republicans as either stupid or evil, Cruz said, but for him, they've "invented a third caricature: they do anything they can to paint me as a wild-eyed lunatic."
"The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors." (Article 2, Section 4)
With two more years to unilaterally impose his will on America, as he did with his unlawful "executive amnesty," Obama faces only token opposition from a timid Republican establishment. It is therefore up to WE THE PEOPLE to stand up and demand that Congress initiate impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives, followed by conviction in the Senate.
