First, the public has to acknowldege that Cruz plays "media" politics, and not representationa­l democratic politics. He is the quintissential version of the modern-day pandering public official. His political activity is solely designed to encourage large donations and lobbying benefits that benefit him as an individual while not offending or even coming to the negative attention of the rare percentage of registered voters that actually vote.
To date, no political action has been taken affecting Texas' citizens' gun "rights" since the Newtown tragedy. Yet, as Cruz is well aware of, corruption in our legal and prosecutorial systems is a national epidemic for which Williamson County has become a stinging embarassment with the exoneration of a innocent man--Michael Morton. So, the loss of our right to innocence certainly HAS affected more of Cruz's constituents than gun legislation has. Does he think we won't notice?
Before running for his current political office, Cruz represented an egregiously corrupt judge in Pennsylvania--a judge that took money for maliciously prosecuting innocent CHILDREN. That judge had operated with impunity for decades in a system that protected his illegal conduct and even helped hide it from the public--the very same public that these public officials (Cruz and the judge) are to serve. Cruz is well aware that this very same evil exists here in Williamson County, with a prosecutorial system and judicial system that did just about everything it could to prevent an innocent man from enjoying his right to innocence.
What about that right, Cruz? Why aren't you stumping to help us lowly citizens--inclu­ding children, protect that right? Could it be because children don't vote or have gobs of money to throw at you?
