10 things I learned from Justice Corrupted by Ted Cruz

10 things I learned from Justice Corrupted by Ted Cruz
Preview

    1. The US system of government was revolutionary

    The idea that rights come from God and not the monarch and the sovereignty (presidency, elected officials ) comes from people, not from God. In the past kings were anointed by popes and whatever the king declared became laws. Starting with a declared Bill of Rights and the constitution was a large departure from the monarchy concepts that grew out of the middle ages in Western Europe.

    2. Nixon was extremely paranoid

    He maintained written lists of "enemies" for decades

    3. The IRS has been used since its inception to put pressure on political opponents

    4. Ted Cruz went to Harvard at the same time as many others in Washington and knew them "back in the day"

    5. Political parties are very combative

    OK I knew this one already.

    6. By aggressively appointing allies to the Judicial system each political party can change the culture of a nation

    the judicial system in the US has become highly polarized and politicized. There are no reasonable people left!

    7. Ted Cruz can express himself well and explain things well.

    He is smarter that I thought.

    8. Term limits would be useful

    So that people, like Ted Cruz and hundreds of others, would not be able to park themselves in the swamp and would have to do something useful before becoming elected. This was something that Dr. Ben Carson feels strongly about: no more career politicians!

    9. Every election is contested by the losers.

    10. Learned a little more about January 6, 2021

    I don't really care that much: it was pretty dumb behavior by a fairly small number of people that was over dramatized.

    11. If you watch any Fox News you have heard almost all of this before
