The Cuban-born father of Senator Ted Cruz, Rafael Cruz, gave a powerful, passionate tongue-lashing of the Obama regime at the “Free the People” event hosted by FreedomWorks. Mr. Cruz spoke from the heart, seemingly using no teleprompter or notes, energetically pacing from side-to-side on stage, comparing Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro to U.S. President Barack Obama.
The elder Mr. Cruz told the crowd of Tea Party supporters, “as a teenager I found myself involved in a revolution. I remember during that time, a young charismatic leader rose up talking about ‘hope and change’.” As the audience erupted in laughter during his pregnant pause, Mr. Cruz finished his point: “His name was Fidel Castro.”
If you’re wondering where Ted Cruz got his passion for freedom, the Constitution, and American heritage, this speech will give you a glimpse:
Before my son left high school, he knew without a shadow of a doubt what his purpose in life would be, and that would be to defend freedom and the Constitution, to work for limited government and the free enterprise system.Rafael Cruz was specific in his strong criticism for Obama, giving specific examples while you could here an audience member yell, “tyranny,” in the background:
I think the most ominous words I’ve ever heard was in the last two State of the Union addresses when our president said, “If Congress does not act, I (Obama) will act unilaterally.” Not much different than that old-bearded friend I left behind in Cuba, governing by decree, by executive order just like a dictator like Fidel Castro.Mr. Cruz’s first hand experience of living through the takeover of a Communist regime and his appreciation for America’s founding principles is obvious:
I feel that without a shadow of a doubt, outside of The Bible, the greatest two documents that have ever been penned are the Constitution of the United States and the Declaration of Independence. And the reason those two documents have lasted for over 230 years is because they were written on the knees of the framers.These are only a few excerpts of Rafael Cruz’s speech, the speech Glenn Beck today, during his radio program, said was the best he’s heard since Ronald Reagan’s speeches. Do yourself a favor and watch it in its entirety. Looks like Senator Ted Cruz is a “chip off the old block.” Back when Ted Cruz’s father immigrated to America, people came to our country for the freedom. Now, way too many come for Obama’s freebies.
When we see the intrusion upon our liberties…when we see, whether it is looking at our emails, or listening to our telephone calls, or when we see the IRS targeting Tea Party groups, freedom-loving groups for their political ideology, I say we can be silent no more! SILENT NO MORE!
