Adding a little more depth to the impending foreign policy debate within the Republican Party, Ted Cruz was recently asked by Time to categorize his views on foreign policy. Cruz says he fits somewhere between Rand Paul and John McCain which, according to Cruz, is most similar to Ronald Reagan.

Report from Time:

Time: How would you characterize your foreign policy views?

Cruz: “Right now there is a divide, say, between the views of John McCain on the one hand and the views of Rand Paul on the other. I like and respect both men, and I would say that my views are somewhere in the middle. The person whose views on foreign policy mine are closest to is Ronald Reagan. Reagan’s views on foreign policy, and how I would characterize my views, are that I think the United States should be a clarion voice for liberty, that we should speak against oppression, against tyranny and for freedom.

I think the U.S. needs to be exceedingly reluctant to put our men and women in harm’s way. I think if and when military action is justified, it should be justified only to protect the vital national-security interest of the U.S. But I also recognize the U.S. is today the world’s lone superpower. We have nations that have considerable hostile intents toward the U.S. And we have radical Islamic terrorists who would readily murder our citizens. I support peace through strength. I think developing our military strength so that we can defend our national-security interests makes it far less likely we’ll be drawn into war.”

      • Are there no two honest men left in the US Congress and Senate — to start the NEEDED Impeachment Process of Obama, the creature that is hell bent on destroying our Constitution, our freedoms, our privacy, our prosperity, our way-of-life and our nation as a whole ?!

        Are all Congressmen and Senators so concerned for what’s best for them — to get reelected or run for some office — that NONE care to risk their positions to do what’s right to save our Nation from this Obamination?!

        Start calling them all — and ask them why they are complacent to this criminal act perpetrated against the American people!

        A sad day in today’s America — if no two honest people can be found in office!

        IMPEACH OBAMA NOW!

  1. On Syria, Cruz is totally hawkish. John McCain is on record (as of now) that he does not to want to send ground forces into Syria. Exact senate words of Ted Cruz: “We need to be developing a clear, practical plan to go in, locate the weapons, secure or destroy them, and then get out. The United States should be firmly in the lead to make sure the job is done right”. The Pentagon estimates that up to 75,000 soldiers would be needed to achieve this invasion that Cruz is calling for. Has Cruz forgotten that the presidency of Ronald Reagan was marked by scandals, investigations, indictments, and convictions of over 138 administration officials. November 1986, President Ronald Reagan conceded that the United States had covertly sold weapons to the Islamic Republic of Iran, The money was then covertly and illegally funneled to the right-wing Contras counter-revolutionary groups seeking to overthrow the socialist Sandinista government of Nicaragua.

      • Surfisher…Your use of internet slang such as “shill” is your right, unfounded as it is. Just as it is my right to label you a Troll, who is someone who “messes around on the internet and posts crap everywhere.”

        • Tess — Only a paid shill (or clueless fool) would keep on supporting Obama…when it has been apodictically demonstrated that the BO is a Liar, an US Constitution destroyer, and pro Big Brother Government (the antithesis of what America is all about).

          Since you are obviously no fool — that makes you a paid shill for this criminal in power.

          By your continuous Obama agenda posts, you are truly earning your 30 pieces of silver….

  2. IMPEACH Barack Hussein Obama — it stumbles-and-bumbles AND STUTTERS (which is usual for this political creature to try and come up with an answer it is not prepared for) while trying to decide what it is: A DICTATOR or NOT….LOL!

    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST VIDEO THAT MAKES THE CASE FOR IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT !!!

    Time to IMPEACH — make this SUPERB 15 minute video viral.

    If any of you here are true Americans, give this post a thumbs up.

    Thank you!

    p.s. Don’t worry about the NSA (Nazis Spying on Americans) profiling you, they’ve been spying on you illegally for years ALREADY, and the only way to stop them NOW is to have Obama IMPEACHED!

    • Reasons to IMPEACH OBAMA — the abomination that has usurped OUR White House!

      Here are mine (if you can add to them, please, do):

      1) Lil’ Hussein PERJURED itself when taking the Oath of Office — to defend the US Constitution. It has done nothing else, but trying to DESTROY the US Constitution instead, since day one! And keeps on ticking in this zeal!

      2) Lil’ Hussein said it would veto NADA — if Congress wanted the power to whisk away any American citizen/s to secret military locations without DUE PROCESS and LEGAL REPRESENTATION only on the POSSIBLE (not verified) suspicion they may be connected to “some possible” terrorist activities.

      NOT ONLY DID Lil’ Hussein LIE, but SIGN IT INTO LAW — AND after a lawsuit was WON in a Federal Court by journalists that deemed it UNCONSTITUTIONAL, it — Lil’ Hussein — sicked its lawyers to have that Federal Judge’s ruling stayed! So, till this day — ANY AND ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS CAN DISAPPEAR, on mere suspicion (never to be heard of again) courtesy of Constitutional Breaker… Lil’ Hussein Barack Obama!

      3) Lil’ Hussein PLEDGED transparency in Government, and NO Spying on US Citizens — guess what, it LIED! Breaking a Verbal Contact — one’s word given to the American people — is the same as CHEATING UNDER OATH! And that’s all Lil’ Hussein DID, HAS AND KEEPS ON DOING!
      Now that PRISM and all the NSA Spying on ALL US Citizens has been exposed — what does it do? NOTHING, but lie again, and have its shills like Eric Holden and NSA’s anti-American General LIE on its behalf to cover its tracks!

      4) Lil’ Hussein: Can anyone tell us what is its real name: Barry Sotero, Slick MacCheat, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Destructor of USA — since no-one seems to know where it was born, and what is it exact REAL NAME. It had a FAKE Birth Certificate posted on line — and afterwards total secrecy!

      SHOW US YOUR REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE — Lil’ Hussein — AFTER ALL, we all need to show ours to get a drivers license, let alone run for President….!!!!

      5) Lil’ Hussein — why are your scholastic records sealed in whatever University you claim to have attended (I have to disclose mine to get a job, WHAT MAKES YOU EXEMPT NOT TO DISCLOSE YOURS — what are you hiding from us… ashamed to show us your grades and the ACTUAL courses you’ve supposedly taken)?!

      6) Lil’ Hussein — if your were born in Hawaii, how come you have a Connecticut Social Security Number (when you’ve never been a resident there, ever)!?

      7) Lil’ Hussein — why won’t you disclose your Actual US Passport, showing where you were born, and you’ve been since acquiring one (I have to show mine every time I travel abroad, but you seem to be ABOVE THE LAW, and have never allowed anyone to show your world travels EVER — what are you hiding)!

      ——————————————————————————————–

      Time to IMPEACH this wannabe Dictator — Lil’ Hussein.

      If you agree, add your thumbs up to this post — if not, enjoy becoming a slave!!!
