Letters to the Editor

I wish ...

I wish either one of my senators was Ted Cruz.

I am not that fortunate. I have senators who favor more spending, larger government, fewer personal liberties, and more government control and greater fiscal burdens.

I wish either one of my senators was Ted Cruz.

I wish my senators would buck the Washington norm, fight for personal freedoms and refuse to continue spending as though the results of voting for trillions of dollars of debt will never have a dire consequence.

I wish either one of my senators was Ted Cruz.

I want to see senators who point out the wrongs in Washington and try to fix those wrongs, instead of thinking more, and bigger government programs will cure all ills.

I wish either one of my senators was Ted Cruz.

I would like to see my senators support life, including life in the womb. But they don’t.

I wish either of my senators was Ted Cruz.

But they’re not. They’re not even close.
