A Libertarian Case for Cruz

Countermoonbat Congressman Justin Amash (R-MI) makes the libertarian case for Ted Cruz:

As a libertarian Republican, I have spent several months promoting the candidacy of my friend Senator Rand Paul, who is, in my view, the most passionate defender of our rights on the national stage today. Since his departure from the presidential race, I’ve been asked many times: what now?

It’s easy to withdraw from politics when the positions and priorities of the candidates do not precisely mirror our own. But we owe it to our beliefs to find constitutional conservative political allies who not only respect our philosophy but also fight for our views to be heard.

We have found such an ally in Senator Ted Cruz.

Ted is not a libertarian and doesn’t claim to be. But he is a principled defender of the Constitution, a brilliant strategist and debater who can defeat the Democratic nominee in the general election, and the only remaining candidate I trust to take on what he correctly calls the Washington Cartel.

The recent passing of Justice Antonin Scalia reminds us of the importance of electing a president committed to nominating justices to the Supreme Court who will uphold the Constitution and the Rule of Law.

The rest is worth reading.

2008 Libertarian presidential candidate (and National Chair of the Liberty Leaders for Cruz coalition) Bob Barr endorsed Cruz even while Rand Paul was still in the race. With Paul out, Cruz is the only serious choice for advocates of limited government.

On a tip from Torcer.

    On civil liberties and foreign policy, Ted and I don’t always agree. But he was one of only ten Republican senators to stand up for our rights by supporting Rand Paul’s amendment to kill the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015—also known as CISA—a cyberspying bill that violates the privacy of all Americans.
    No one is calling for the abolishion of the NSA. There is no such thing as cybersecurity as long as they exist. None of the creaqtures in D.C. even understand the threat that the NSA is, not only to the citizens, corporations, and the nation. Cruz needs to do something to get some air under his wings, or he will be on the sidelines in a week.

    Jews for Cruz

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Seriously…how’s he going to bring back jobs?

    Jobs that have left the US are already in environments with lower regulation, lower labor costs, and lower taxes.

    It is like trying to attract job creators back to New York City.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    If you are a conservative voting for Trump, you are, by definition, not a conservative, or you are completely ignorant as to who Trump is.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    I doubt you have ever considered voting for a conservative in your entire waste of a life.

    Nope your are! Cruz is a liar, a cheat and just plain painful to listen to. Cruz is hated by everyone for a reason. Don’t worry he will be out of the race soon enough.
