Inspiring Speech from Rafael Cruz, Father of Sen. Ted Cruz

Posted: July 7, 2013 at 10:45 am   /   by

At the FreedomWorks Free the People event on July 6, Mr. Rafael Cruz, father of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), delivered this inspiring speech on his personal history, surviving Fidel Castro’s communist regime and coming to the land of opportunity and freedom.

Like Obama, Castro started as a “hope and change” leader, but gradually destroyed all freedom and personal initiative in Cuba.   Is that where Obama’s “hope and change” is taking us?  Rafael Cruz talks about the many parallels and the dangers for America he sees ahead.
