Of course this man is the anathema of true liberty and democracy. Sadly, one cannot state he is the worst of his party. Yes Steve King- this column is looking at you.
Ted Cruz is so awful Republicans hate him. And the opposing party, that would be the Democrats, just as corrupt but some have a passing interest in science, would love for Cruz to be the Republican nominee.
How awful is he? He ranks down near sarahpalin on the scale.
How awful was she? Well, the not so industrious Governor of Alaska was one of the reasons why a racist nation elected a black President. And for the record, he is of mixed race.
And Americans, anyone who believes this man is black; there is a bridge in Brooklyn for sale. Overheard in a bar: President Obama is not taking care of his own people. Oh yes he is. Just ask Wall Street. Or the messy fossil fuels industry. And the war machine. For starters.
But we digress but not too far because the current President is part of this discussion.
Ted Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother. He is renouncing his Canadian citizenship. Hold on there, the healthcare is great. Oh wait, we all pay for Cruz’s health plan.
Anyway, a man born in Canada wants to run for President. So a man, let’s call him Barack Obama, who was born right here, has a legitimate right to serve.
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — 'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.' — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.
Folks often cite this quote by Emerson when they are being inconsistent due to stupidity or being drunk. They are wrong. In context it means that one must be open to new ideas and beliefs and not live chained to ignorant thought.
Yes Donald Trump- this column is looking at you. And millions more.
What needs to be reexamined you ask?
Okay, the importance of immediately dealing with climate change.
That would mean not approving the Keystone Pipeline. And the ball is back to you President Obama.
Run Ted Run.
