The liberal media has been demonizing U.S. senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) ever since the Cuban-American got elected to congress. However, the Tea Party crusader is a formidable opponent for any Democrat presidential nominee, including Hillary Clinton.
Here are four reasons why Ted Cruz could win the White House in the 2016 elections.
1. Great Orator
Like Barack Obama, Cruz is a former lawyer. Go on YouTube and watch the junior senator on the speaking circuit. He's a tremendous orator, and a charismatic speaker who gives his audience plenty of enthusiasm. He also maintains his wits when heckled by protestors and pro-Obama supporters.
During campaign season, the Tea Party reformist will be extremely capable to hold his own when doing interviews with the leftist media.
2. Outstanding Education
Liberals and journalists may question Cruz on stances regarding social and policy issues, but they have to respect his intellectual brilliance. The senator from Texas was a national debating champion in his early 20s. He graduated with distinction from Princeton and Harvard Law.
Cruz's debating skills is evident while on the speaking circuit. He has also represented cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, which means he can't be pushed around by false logic and unreasonable arguments.
3. Principled Views
Barack Obama's views usually "evolve" to accomodate political polling. However, Ted Cruz offers a fresh alternative to flip-flopping by making principled stands. This may appeal to independent voters and moderate Democrats who are sick of D.C. politicians obfuscating the truth.
With Cruz, you get a consistent brand: conservative, low taxes, pro-job growth, small government, strong military, constitutionalist, and Reaganite.
4. American Exceptionalism
Finally, Ted Cruz wholeheartedly believes in American Exceptionalism -- a concept that's alien to Obama, though the latter pays lip service to it. As a well-defined brand, Cruz could energize mainstream voters who are growing tired of government abuses, waste, ineptitude, and dysfunction.
Obama brought America back to the late 1970s weakness of Jimmy Carter's presidency. We may see a return of history in an 80s-like reprise of a Reagan revolution.
The establishment is destroying America. Reformists like Ted Cruz could see increasing support among disenchanted voters.
