Ted Cruz knew just what Values Voter Summit attendees wanted to hear today, delivering a speech about how Democrats in Congress want to repeal the First Amendment’s free speech and religious liberty protections along with the Second Amendment. He even spoke out against Democrats for threatening the “right to privacy,” which ironically many conservatives believe is not part of in the Constitution but actually a liberal invention.
“Defend the values that are American values, we stand for life, we stand for marriage, we stand for Israel,” he said.
Cruz, while applauding his own applause lines, then laid out the agenda for a GOP-controlled Senate.
“We abolish the IRS,” Cruz said, and “we repeal Common Core” — an odd agenda item since Common Core was not passed by Congress but enacted by various state legislatures controlled by Republicans and Democrats alike.
And of course, repeal Obamacare.
