America needs more like Ted Cruz

Published: October 30, 2013

Contrary to what Kathleen Parker advocates in “GOP must put reins on Ted Cruz” (Commentary, Oct. 22), what the GOP, and America, needs is a lot more like Cruz in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, to say nothing of the 50 state governors' mansions and legislatures. Cruz, R-Texas, leaves no doubt in anyone's mind how he feels about things. If his constituents don't like it, they can remove him from office when he comes up for re-election. That's as it should be for all elected officials, no matter at what level of government they may serve.

Those who worry about being “primaried” probably shouldn't be in office to begin with, because that indicates they're more worried about their own futures than they are about the concern of the citizens they were elected to represent. Let's have more of Ted Cruz, not less!
