4 reasons for Cruz Control

So, my first diary and my  first foray into writing about a candidate. So why do I like [mc_name name=”Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)” chamber=”senate” mcid=”C001098″ ] Here is my reasoning:

  1. Principled. In arguing cases as Texas solicitor general he has argued within the scope of law even when it did not fit his politics. This can now actually be used to his advantage. Take for example the way he can use League of Latin American Citizens 2006 to his advantage. Not only can he say he fought for Latinos, he did not let his own politics get in the way of fair adjudication of the law. If he governs as future President the same way we would not see blatant executive actions like the ones President Obama routinely indulges in.
  2. Congenial. Say what you like about his beliefs but he can espouse them with fluidity and a smile. He has already visited plenty of left wing media outlets and they can not throw him off his game. He is branded as crazy, and wild-eyed and so on but the truth is, when you see him speak he is impressive. He will win over more and more voters as they start to see him. He will shine in the primary debates.
  3. Well Funded. At over a reported 31 Million in funds raised already that nearly tops ALL contenders except Romney in the 2012 cycle. We all understand big donors will have different role in this election but even still, [mc_name name=”Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)” chamber=”senate” mcid=”C001098″ ] has the money to be competitive for the long haul.
  4. Unafraid. As the only candidate to go into Iowa and flatly state he would do away with the Renewable Fuel Standard he proved he can stand up for his beliefs. It is refreshing to not hear a politician pander to a constituency for points. He has a belief and he let them hear it. Let the chips fall where they may.

For these reasons and plenty more I am sure to discover, the more I see of [mc_name name=”Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)” chamber=”senate” mcid=”C001098″ ], the more I will be inclined to throw him my support. We all have our reasons for backing a candidate. I hope you add this to your processing as you think through the reasons for backing yours. This will be a great primary season.
