In a recent op-ed for the Wisconsin State Journal, Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) laid out a thorough explanation for his decision to throw his support behind Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for President. After discussing the many positive impacts of conservative policies on the state and people of Wisconsin, he explained why it was that he believed Ted Cruz could bring about similar change on a national scale.
Ted Cruz will ignite the same kind of growth on a nationwide scale because he recognizes what has made this country extraordinary is not the government but the people across this country who risk everything to build a better life for themselves and their families.
And so he’ll get the government out of the way. He’ll repeal Obamacare and roll back the EPA and the regulatory agents who are stifling your business.
Ted Cruz’s tax plan will increase the median household’s take-home pay by $7,600, as estimated by the Tax Foundation. It will get rid of the loopholes for special interests, abolish the IRS, and make it so simple to complete your taxes you can fill them out on a postcard.
But it’s not just our economy that’s at stake, it’s our fundamental freedoms –- those same freedoms the Founders so tirelessly fought to enshrine in our Bill of Rights. With Cruz, we will have a leader who has spent his life defending our right to free speech and to freely live our faith and every other right in the Constitution. He will nominate rock-solid judges who have the same record of faithfully upholding our constitutional freedoms.
Abroad, ISIS is applauding itself for its brutal attacks of Paris and Brussels — and it has made it clear its intent is to come after us. Yet our president continues to deny that radical Islamic terrorism is the enemy.
Our kids will live in a safer world with Cruz as commander in chief because our nation will be stronger. He will rebuild the military and stand with our allies.
We need a leader who recognizes that it’s not his own exceptionalism but America’s that we are working to preserve. We need a leader who serves the people above all else, and who will make this nation abundantly more prosperous, free and safe.
That’s why I am casting my ballot for Ted Cruz, and I ask you to do the same Tuesday. If voters unite, just like we’ve done here in Wisconsin, we can reverse course and restore the principles that have made this nation a land of opportunity.
What do you think? Is Walker right? Is Cruz the candidate who offers America the best opportunity for recovery from the train wreck that has been the Obama era? Can Cruz’s consistent and unwavering support of his ideological beliefs lead America away from the destitution of the Obama administration and into a Brave New World?
