Tom Cruise no sorry Ted Cruz

By Penelope Griffiths

So the Trump lost in Iowa.
    But he didn’t really think he would triumph in Iowa. He isn’t a total idiot but a shrewd businessman, and he always knew that his brash, outspoken persona would not appeal to the masses. In the other corner waited Ted Cruz, who is not that well known over the Pond – other than that he was born in Canada but is a U.S. citizen. Oh, and also that he thinks the whole of America is doomed like a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah if they don’t follow his “God.”

    He condemns everything that isn’t allowed / written in his bible: homosexuality, planned parenthood, etc. His condemnation of Muslims, although not shouted about like the Trump, is none the less equally abhorrent. But aren’t the Islamic State warriors also following their “God,” following their “bible”?
    Whereas you have the Trump shouting his mad ideas to anyone and everyone who will listen, this Ted fellow is far more dangerous in telling his disciples that he is “the chosen one of God.” Faith is a powerful and empowering force, no matter who you follow. With his conviction that he is always right, what sort of decisions would he make for those millions who are not followers of his “God” – not just in the U.S.A., but also in the world at large?
    Truly, the insane seem intent on taking over the world.
