Skip to comments.Cruz’s Speech: Presidential Hopeful Plays ‘Jesus’ Card – Text ‘Imagine’ Or ‘Constitution’ To 33733

Senator Ted Cruz has made his presidential wishes official, with Cruzs speech streaming live on ABC News and other news outlets as of this writing, with Senator Ted reaching deep into the belief system that he says changed his life and included his parents belief in Christ. During the speech, Cruz related how his father and mother were drinking way too much alcohol when he was a young boy, and at one point, his dad decided he would leave the family deserting his young son and wife. However, being invited to a Bible study changed Cruzs fathers life, and convinced him to come back home and not leave Cruz to be raised by a single mother.
I want to talk to you this morning about reigniting the promise of America.
From lessons about Patrick Henry, to sweeping rhetoric that included Cruz encouraging believers to bring their beliefs to the voting booths, the speech caused Teds name to become a trending topic on Twitter, and the subject of much discussion, derision, and praise. Cruz challenged the audience to imagine a world with lots of job offers available for them upon graduating from Liberty University. And speaking of that Christian university, Cruz pointed to the lawsuit that the institute of higher learning filed immediately upon Obamacare going live.
Give me liberty, or give me death.
It was certainly a fiery speech, which found Cruz pointing to his pro-life values, the sacrament of marriage and was bereft of any cute little 3-year-old girls asking him why the whole world was on fire, as reported by the Inquisitr.
Today, roughly half of born-again Christians arent voting. Theyre staying home. Imagine millions of people of faith coming to the polls and voting our values.
From fear-mongering over privacy rights, emails and common core educational issues, Cruz touched on rights to bear arms and more.
Imagine in 2017 a new president signing into legislation a new law repealing every word of Obamacare.
Senator Teds talk about making tax laws a lot simpler and doing away with the IRS received tons of applause.
Imagine a simple flat tax that lets every American fill out his or her taxes on a post card. Imagine abolishing the IRS.
Overall, Sen. Cruzs speech at the largest Christian college, as reported by Yahoo News, received rousing applause from the crowd when speaking about disallowing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons to defeating radical Islamic terrorism, which Cruz said will be called by its name.
That is why today, I am announcing that Im running for President of the United States.
Cruz asked the Liberty crowd to break a rule, take out their phones and text Imagine Or Constitution to 33733.
If he doesn't have a chance, why attack and belittle him 24/7? I think we know the answer to that.
Rush is playing excerpts of Cruz’s speech right now. I didn’t get a chance to listen this A.M., but I all I can say is WOW!! This speech is scaring the crap out of liberals; they know it’s powerful and will resonate with average Americans.
This man will need our prayers and financial support!

That’s the 100K question. I love pointing this out to Libs. They never have an answer.
The Left will always tell us who they fear...always!
He has both from me.
The “Imagine” we had a POTUS who actually loved and stood for this country - Speech!

Make no mistake - the “right v left” battle is actually Christ vs anti-Christ.
In 2016 I’m voting (as always) conservative. I haven’t made a final decision yet as to whom I’m supporting. I started with five, and five are still on the list. But let’s just say that Ted isn’t hurting his case any. I’m very pleased with what I’m hearing.
Certainly not to the same level.
We all know... they hate Cruz because they hate the Jesus he loves. America is under God’s judgement. It’s full wrath may be delayed if someone like Cruz became president and American Christians really repent of the self-life most have been living - but come it will. We can’t change the fact that 50 million babies have been murdered for the convenience of others. This could be America’s last election. It is certainly America’s last chance. If Hillary - or Elizabeth Warren or Jeb wins, that seals the deal. We’re history.
Our American Bibi!
I donated to Ted before the speech today, and after I watched the speech, I was so moved, I doubled my amount and donated again.
I was saving for a new truck, but what the hell, my current vehicle is still running.
It's a Rolls-Hardly, rolls down one hill and hardly makes the next one.
I drive a 1984 diesel, what does that tell you? LOL
Just that it is being said and many Americans will be hearing it is enough to make a lot of liberal heads explode.
Exactly! Our local Libs hear in northern Utah were going nuts this weekend when it was announced Senator Cruz would announce his presidency. They’re so utterly predictable!
Thank you for the Link. I’ll be sending a donation today!
Vet, I have to say that Ted Cruz’s speech was magnificent!
I mean, I cannot even remember the last time I heard any words like this, or any thoughts like this, or any sentiments like this from anyone.
And he meant them.
By God, he meant them!

Don't forget the Prayers as well. The Lamestream Media Democrats will be going at him heavily from this point on. I pray he does exceedingly well in the debates and takes apart any liberal/progressive/Democrat moderators that seek to smear him (unlike what they will do for Hillary).
Indeed the democrats greatest fear smut to ensue 24/7 they have nothing to offer except more misery.
