So guys, I found this article I think you'll find interesting, I know I did: http://www.seanedwards.com/what-is-christian-objectivism Tell me, what are your thoughts on it? Just read it and then express your opinions here Sorry, I'm new to this site by the way.
Republican, Texan, Hispanic, 44-year-old, two-year, Senator Ted Cruz announced he was running for President of the United States yesterday at the private, selective, Christian school of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. I think Ted Cruz is super-intelligent, very ambitious, mostly principled, and rather crazy. He's a quasi-libertarian in the tradition of Ronald Reagan, but also a religious nut in the tradition of Sarah Palin. He advocates "a simple flat tax" so that we can "fill out [our] taxes on a postcard," and is committed to "repealing every word of ObamaCare." He wants to protect gun rights and promote private school vouchers. But he's opposed to abortion and gay marriage. Cruz thinks America -- historically and currently -- is "great," "indispensable," and "a shining city on a hill." He rejects Obama's largely-successful attempt to "fundamentally transform America" into a nanny state and Big Brother of do-gooder fascism and socialism. He attacks Obama's recent immigration amnesty for 4-5 million illegal aliens as "lawless" and "unconstitutional." Unfortunately he foolishly thinks "our rights don't come from man. They come from god almighty." Cruz says he wants to "protect us from radical Islamic terrorism" and to "call it by its name." But its name is "Islamic activism" or "jihadism." Overall Ted Cruz seems relatively good, but Republican, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul seems better. speech transcript: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2015/03/23/ted-cruz-announces-presidentia speech video: http://www.c-span.org/video/?324979-1/ted-cruz-presidential-campaign-announcement
