Dear Rafael Edward Cruz, (aka Ted Cruz)
As a person who is older than you by eight months, it’s time for you to sit down and listen to your elders! When I woke up this morning, I had no idea what I was going to write about, but then I turned on MSNBC and you were on Morning Joe. The moment I heard your voice, I knew I would be writing about you. If you want to see Rafael (Ted) Cruz on Morning Joe, please CLICK HERE.
This morning on Morning Joe, you were asked why an 18-year-old can buy an AR-15, but they cannot buy a handgun and you never answered the question. Here in Texas, a gun permit is a valid voter ID, but a student ID is not. Why? Because you pander to the NRA and really don’t care what concerned Texans want.
I could walk into a gun store tomorrow to legally purchase an AR-15 and a legal bump stock that will turn that AR into a fully automatic gun. With the bump stock, I only have to pull the trigger once and then the gun takes over firing bullets until the gun runs out of ammo. Why does anyone need this gun? Can you claim that you are hunting with the AR-15 with the bump stock? The only thing you are hunting for with the bump stock is other people. The AR with the bump stock doesn’t target shoot so well. Most people won’t be able to hold onto the gun steady enough to hit the target, but when you are shooting 40 rounds in seconds you aren’t going for accuracy, are you?
On Morning Joe the only thing you wanted to talk about was your “Grassley-Cruz” bill and there are parts of the bill I agree with, but it’s mostly about not taking guns away from people. Yes, I agree with the idea of people who lie on a background check for a gun should pay a fine or do jail time and the funding to put more officers on school grounds is a good idea, but the time has come to reinstate the assault weapons ban and I don’t care if it takes guns that are not technically an “assault rifle.” There are way too many guns in the country.

Why do you go by the name Ted? Your “cute” little song making fun about Beto O’Rourke’s name and yet, you don’t go by Rafael, do you? You decided to go by Ted and it took your father a year to go along with your name change. It doesn’t look good for you to be making fun of other’s especially since the reason you decided to go by Ted is that you were being teased because you went by the diminutive of your name Felito and kids called you Cheeto Felito. Making fun of another person’s name is childish. Is the president rubbing off on you or is his bad behavior giving you license to act like a child?
I’m a liberal in Texas and according to your song millions of Texans aren’t going to vote for Beto, but I’m here to inform you that there are millions of Texans who are fed up with what you stand for. We know you aren’t in the Senate representing me, you are there representing the NRA and people like you who think that it is a God-given right to right to own firearms. The last time I went through the Bible I don’t recall anything about God and Jesus owning guns. Maybe you can point it out to me?
Not all Texans want guns. I am one who doesn’t want one anywhere near me, but I’m not the kind of Texan you even care about because I’m not an NRA member. Your grade from the NRA is an A+ and you have taken over $77,000 from the NRA so it pays for you to ignore your constituents and focus on the NRA. (LINK)
Here you are claiming that us Texans cook our bacon differently and yet this isn’t for your constituents consumption, this is pandering to the NRA. I’m getting a clear picture of who you are Rafael and I don’t like it. I will gladly point the way to the unemployment line when Beto O’Rourke takes your job in November. I like the fact that he has an F rating from the NRA. That means he wants to represent all Texans.
Speaking of Texan, be honest Rafael, you were born in Calgary, Canada. I know and so do a lot of other people. You can spout Texan this and Texan that, but you are a good ole Yankee, just like me. I was born in Pennsylvania and you in Canada and that makes you more Yankee than me. Oh and Beto O’Rourke was born in El Paso, guess that makes him more Texan than you.
You must be spending way too much time with Kellyanne Conway because you have been pushing your “alternative” facts. When you were asked about the 2013 shutdown of the government you wouldn’t answer any questions, but said that it was a narrative of the mainstream media to say that you led the way for the shutdown. Do you not recall your Green Eggs and Ham filibuster to delay the implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act? I remember, do I need to remind you? (LINK)
Well, Rafael, I will leave you with a little bit of advice. Stay away from Donald Trump, you are beginning to act like him. Represent all Texans, ALL OF US. Take these last few months before the election in November to clean your office and leave it all nice and tidy for Robert “Beto” O’Rourke.
