Ted Cruz has the ability to drive the Left crazy because he says the things that get people fired from their jobs, get them ostracized from the faculty, get them called “uppity” by writers at the New Yorker.
He refuses to pay homage to the stuffed shirts that define the boundaries of acceptable speech, the accents that we are allowed to use, the music that we are allowed to listen to lest the delicate flowers of academia or popular culture get their undies bunched up their crack. His is an invitation to buzz off. For the government to butt out of our lives. He invites the snoops to go where the sun don’t shine; so that the next election the IRS, FBI, SEC, EPA, BATF and various other agencies that can put you in prison don’t put their fat greasy thumbs on the scales.
Government encourages the poor, the rich and everyone in between to look to it for everything. I spent an hour today listening to a lawyer tell me how to have you, Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer, pay for my stay in a nursing home even if I own a million dollar home.
I know that the NSA is able to tap my phone and the sheriff is able to track my movements. We all commit several felonies a day so if we become troublesome enough to the Ruling Class they can threaten you with prison. All the while Hillary is giving the middle finger to fly-over Americans because the Democrats in charge of the justice system won’t do a damn thing to enforce the law. Imagine if we didn't have to feel guilty of being Americans. Imagine that we could call Islamic terrorism by its name.
That’s why Ted Cruz scares the hell out of people who think that, with a few minor tweaks, this government is just fine. They are the same people who bought the Obama line in 2008. That’s why these people are uncomfortable with Cruz. It’s not him; it’s the people who like him that they don’t like. We're the peasants with pitchforks.
