Writer Steve Berman prefaces his article for TheResurgent.com by stating, “The shocking headline is not click-bait.”
Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?
In his article, Berman lays out the similarities between Barack Obama and Senator Ted Cruz, in that both fought hard for their principles. One of the big difference is that Barack wanted to transform America into something unrecognizable, while Cruz wants to bring America back to her Constitutional values.
Berman writes, “I don’t know Ted Cruz personally, and I’ve only met him a handful of times at campaign events; it’s likely those meetings are totally forgettable for a man who has met thousands and thousands in this way. But the look I saw in his eyes was not forgettable. It was the intensity of a man driven by a vision and a calling.”
He goes on to say:
“Cruz is the real deal, a dyed-in-the-wool conservative who believes that the Constitution was drafted to mean what it says in the founders’ original words. He believes that the founders were men of conviction, faith, and calling–that those men believed in a loving, eternal, creative, personal and all-powerful God…
Cruz has never lost his calling–he keeps it bright and hot–politics be damned (and many damn him for it). It’s why he fights to the last man, often staying late after rallies to answer every question in detail. It’s why he’s not fazed at all by attacks on his character, or even his daughters, and responds in good cheer. Cruz is not fighting for himself, the cause is bigger than himself.
And that’s what scares the “professionals” and consultants most.
Obama is uncompromising and driven also, but his lack of a clear moral objective other than organizing for change–radical change–has allowed establishment-types to latch on to his wagon. In the end, Obama betrayed them all, because his cause is larger than himself, and power is only a means to his ends. He’s an Ailinskyite to the core.
Cruz is like Obama in this key respect: should he gain the Oval Office, he will be a very effective president*, with laser-clear goals. Those who don’t agree with Cruz’s goals of restoring the Constitution to law, the Bible to morality, and the citizen to power, will stop at nothing to keep him from attaining them.
*Those who reject the notion that Obama has been an effective president should go back and see D’Souza’s film “2016: Obama’s America” and tell me how it’s wrong.
