Why Ted Cruz terrifies the left
Why does Ted Cruz terrify the left? Because he’s a not-fat, wholly conservative version of Chris Christie.
What explains why the left—and the RINO community—are terrified of people like Cruz? Because they’re articulate and their ideas have explanatory power.
Today’s leftism has largely devolved to politically preemptive ad hominem attacks against its enemies and Cruz has the bona fides, the platform, and the intellect to not just grab the liberals’ beat-down sticks, but to turn those things against them.
The fact the liberal worldview and mindset have been shown incapable of improving the United States is less important to the left than their power preservation. Cruz threatens all that modern liberals hold dear: power, control, and ideology.
