Ted Cruz’s historic grand slam speech against the Washington Cartel

CruzThis is our real-life, current-day Mr. Smith Goes to Washington moment.

All Americans, especially those who follow politics lightly or not at all, should HEAR THIS SPEECH. 

Granted, most Democrats are already a lost cause. They cannot be dissuaded; they can only be defeated.

And the same is true for GOP Establishment (GOPe) insiders and hangers-on who live off the system that they’ve created and which they only pretend to oppose.

But for the rest of us, this is the speech to hear and understand — the whole thing.  This is Senator Ted Cruz, speaking from the floor of the Senate, Oct 29, 2015, in what is arguably the most important speech in decades.


By the way, this is no sound bite. It’s as long as a short Hollywood movie.

Can you spare 90 minutes for the future of your children, grandchildren, and your country? Listen carefully to Cruz and study his charts to see what has become of Washington and Congress.

Also, compare this speech to the “gotcha” drivel on the network-TV Jerry-Springer-style “debates” and the agenda-driven, Democrat-servile, mainstream media.

Consider too what this man might be able to do, as President, to right America’s badly listing ship of state.
