Sowell: the void Ted Cruz fills
« on: February 25, 2014, 08:51:13 AM »

Sen. Ted Cruz is a hero in some Republican circles — and the opposite among many of his Senate Republican colleagues.

At this crucial juncture in the history of America, internal battles within the only party that can turn things around are the last thing Americans need. Moreover, each side in this political civil war has all too many valid criticisms of the other.

The Republican establishment’s criticisms of Cruz are criticisms of his rule-or-ruin strategy, which can destroy whatever chance Republicans have of taking back the Senate in 2014 and taking back the White House in 2016. And, without political power, there is no real hope of changing things in Washington....


...The Republican establishment has more than a tactical deficiency, however. It seems to have no principle to offer or follow with any consistency. Its lack of articulation may be just a reflection of that lack of principle. It is hard to get to the point when you have no point to get to.

Ted Cruz filled a void. But the Republican establishment created the void.

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.
