The Will of the People

There is something to be said for valiant stands against the odds. In Ted Cruz we find the makings of statesman, and not a politician. He has pitted himself against the Democratic Party and the aptly named ‘Surrender Caucus’ of Make Believe Republicans. “I don’t work for the party bosses in Washington. I work for the people of Texas, and I fight for them… far too many people get elected and they think they’re there to be part of the club.” Bravo, Senator Cruz! From one of his detractors, Senator Lindsey Graham, “The political marketplace will determine Ted Cruz’s future. We helped President Obama when he needed our help the most…” Correct on the first point, Senator Graham. Ted Cruz’ future seems secure, via the political marketplace. The second point will also affect you politically, but not in the way you suppose. We turn to history as a teaching tool. Benedict Arnold displayed evidences of military genius, above and beyond any mustered by either side during this country’s Revolutionary War. Unfortunately, he is remembered as a military genius by but a few, chiefly because most folks cannot get past the fact that he betrayed his country. In like manner, you and you allies may find the atmosphere at the polls a bit chilly. In a condescending manner you have with premeditation chosen to ignore an important five word phrase. The five word phrase? THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.
