Republican National Convention 2016 in Cleveland, OH, could one day be viewed as a turning point in the career of U.S. Senator and former Republican Presidential candidate Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz.
It is during this convention when Cruz, being one of the few speakers outside of Donald Trump’s immediate family whom Republicans had been able to convince to give a speech, apparently made his first ever accurate and politically insightful statement.
“Vote your conscience!” said Cruz in an uncharacteristic bout of lucidity and vision.
Political Analyst and NSN reporter Jerald Lindgren was the first one to notice the unexpected event.
“Amazing, amazing!” he tweeted shortly after the statement, not being able to contain his excitement. “Cruz. No one expected! So soon! Turning point!”
It is unclear whether Cruz was aware of the uncharacteristic depth of what he had just said, or whether the spontaneous statement had come as a surprise to him too. He has, after all, been in Politics for more than 17 years. It is possible that all these years of experience had finally rewarded him, resulting in his first ever true statement. But then again, it is also possible that his statement had been pure luck of the moment.
Irrespective, in a Convention dominated by anger, paranoia and lies, Mr. Cruz’ statement stands as a lone beacon of truth and sanity.
Congratulations to Mr. Ted Cruz for being, for the first time ever, right!
