STEYN: One person can change everything and 'I like Ted Cruz'

LOVE the way this guy thinks! We need Mark Steyn in the U.S. Senate!
TRS: Mark Steyn really is one of today’s intellectual heavy weights when it comes to understanding politics and the culture. And for most of the interview he and Hannity discuss the amazing hole American seems to be in and how Republicans are losing the argument.

But at the end of the interview he describes why he is still an optimist about America and when asked if there is anyone out there who could make a difference, he said he likes Ted Cruz. Why? Because Ted Cruz isn’t interested in conceding ground to the left, but rather pulling them in his direction.

Breitbart: Mark Steyn, author of “The Undocumented Mark Steyn,” argued that culture is more important than elections, and that he liked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as someone who could shift American politics to the right in an appearance on Tuesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

Steyn stated “vision’s the important part. What's actually happening is that the kind of model of the social democratic welfare dependency state since the Second World War has run out of gas. It's over, and to persuade people to move off that model actually requires you to have a conversation with the people and change minds,” which he added goes beyond elections.

According to Steyn, providing a vision is important because “a lot of people don't want to think about complicated issues or unpleasant issues. They don't want to think about Islam. They don't want to think about massive debt that will cripple their children's lives, and liberals are very good at just giving them a kind of cute slogan that says this slogan will get you through it. ‘Coexist.’ You put a ‘coexist’ bumper sticker on your car you don’t have to think about problems of the world anymore.”

He added, “the whole position of the Left is that they don't want to win the argument, they'd just as soon cancel the argument. So, if you query open borders immigration, which is an existential issue for any nation, then you're a racist. So, in other words, you have to let in the Ebola guys because otherwise. As there were people protesting outside this building today, you’re xenophobic.”

Steyn concluded that “the right man can make the difference,” and declared “I like Ted Cruz” when asked who he thinks is the one person who could shift the tide in American politics.
He's absolutely right! Now, it's convincing the Republican Party, then weaning voters off the MSM, that are the major obstacles to such truth.
