Released just three days before Christmas, presidential candidate Ted Cruz has a new three-minute video entitled “2015: A Year Fighting for Freedom, Texas and America,” in which he powerfully explains how to “break the Washington Cartel.”
In the new video, Cruz explains that in Washington, D.C., it’s much easier for politicians to take the “path of least resistance.”
“There’s a reason so many politicians talk about standing up to Washington and yet, so few actually do it. Because it’s far easier to take the path of least resistance.
“How do you break the Washington Cartel? You make the political price of doing the wrong thing higher than the political price of doing the right thing.
That can only come from We the People.”
Ted Cruz is credited with coining the term “Washington Cartel” and has previously defined it as:
“The Washington Cartel consists of career politicians in both parties who get in bed with lobbyists and special interests here in Washington and grow and grow and grow government. The Washington Cartel is, I believe, the source of the volcanic frustration Americans face across this country.”
Cruz has, often alone or nearly so, stood up to fight the establishment in both parties, fighting against issues like the funding of Obamacare, Planned Parenthood, and trying to stop Obama’s dangerous Iran Deal, as well as the continual raising of the debt ceiling.
