The Story Behind The Ted Cruz At Liberty Lynchburg Story

-
Ted Cruz announced, at Liberty University, that he is seeking the Republican nomination for President.
-
Based on his TeaParty base, it is appropriate that Cruz would come to Lynchburg, the epicenter of the Virginia TeaParty Leadership, to make his announcement.  Apparently Texas isn't Conservative enough.
-
Cruz did not highlight at the announcement the recent Virginia political outcomes resulting from the TeaParty Leadership’s take-over of the Republican Party of Virginia RPV.
He didn’t mention that the Democrats now have the Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General and both US Senators.
-
Nor did he mention the VaTeaParty Leadership’s successful political-assassination of Conservative Republican Congressman Eric Cantor.
He also didn’t reveal the current target list of other Republican Office holders who do not salute the snake-banner nor swear allegiance to the TeaParty’s self-anointed Leaders.  Apparently it’s not about being Conservative enough or governing, it’s all about control and ideology.
-
Cruz joins his friend Santorum and the other TeaParty Leadership entities whose claim to fame was using the primary process to mortally wound the last two national Republican Tickets by placing ideology above selecting candidates who can be elected and then govern. 
-
Cruz’s team is oblivious to the reality that Republican Candidates must win the votes of almost all Republicans, most Independents and many Regan-Democrats.  Their mantra is “it’s my way or the highway”.  The result is that Republican’s now sit on the bleachers watching the Progressives control our government while we pay the resultant taxes and endure the ever-increasing encroachment upon our freedoms.
-
It has been sad to watch a once vibrant and successful Republican Party reduced to a few slogans, bumper-stickers and snake-banners with the resultant loss of representation in the political process.
There’s something sad about self-inflected wounds and misdirected hostility!  Especially when it benefits Obama, Reid, Pelosi and the DNC!
