Ted Cruz vs Bernie Sanders needs to happen again. And again. And again. Quite frankly, THIS should have been the debate we were having all throughout last year. Granted, it wouldn’t sway the basement-dwelling trolls away from the #FeelTheBern zombie ranks (math and reality are touchy subjects for these dark bottom feeders). But if some middle of the road voters had witnessed Ted Cruz take a figurate dump all over Bernie Sanders vision of life? Well it might have changed a few minds. Clean up on aisle socialism.
Behold, Ted Cruz beating Bernie Sanders to death with numbers. Sit back, grab a drink. Enjoy!
At some point though, Ted Cruz was simply striking an old man. There’s only so much one is allowed to destroy the other before common decency takes over. Me, personally? I’m okay with this old fogie getting taken out back and pistol-whipped in the wrinkly mug. I find it soothing. It’s like Enya playing in the background, only it inspires me to greater heights of maniacal laughter. But for everyone else watching an old socialist getting knocked around from pillar to post?
This is how our leaders should be debating. And again, when it’s one on one and the left is confronted with facts, they got nothing else other than to have someone pull a fire alarm. While look to call anybody a racist. Redundancies, the left has to have them.
Throughout the night, Bernie Sanders made wild, desperate attempts to appeal to emotions. Fairness, “healthcare is a yuman right (yes “yuman”), what about all the poor people who can’t X and shouldn’t government Y” in hopes of appealing to his mindless followers and even more mindless Americans who are all about those FEELS!
Ted Cruz, by contrast, offered numbers, facts, and truth. In other words, “It’s lovely you have such lofty feelers and want to help the people. But if you could maybe not use everyone else’s money forcibly taken from them, which you can’t do for much longer than a year, that would probably help everyone in the long run.” Throw in a few awkward smiles, a personal story, and “I would also note” and I nailed my Ted Cruz impersonation. Now give me your money, I need to see a doctor.
Truth is, even if you had all the money in the world, you couldn’t fund Bernie’s pipe dream. As Ted pointed out. Bernie should tuck tail and hide in one of his three houses.
We had fun with this debate last night…
