Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has thrown down a gauntlet against the woke communists who are suddenly running most of the multinational corporations in the US that operate with the blessing of the taxpayers: Save your corporate PAC money for Democrats, because Republicans in Congress won’t be taking any more of your cash to destroy America.
This is a sea-change in how the Republican Party is going to win elections in the future and hopefully put a few things back on the right track before the USA finally cracks up into multiple smaller countries (sometime in the early 2030s).
Cruz penned an op-ed that appeared in the Wall Street Journal this week. In that op-ed, he told Coca-Cola and the other woke communist multinationals that he will no longer accept any corporate PAC donations from these companies. And he challenged all of his Republican colleagues in the House and Senate to do the same. His message to the communists was simple: You hate America, you hate our voters, you try to strongarm us into taking positions that hurt our voters, and it is finally time for you to go pound sand.
“Starting today, I no longer accept money from any corporate PAC. I urge my GOP colleagues at all levels to do the same.”
How much do you suppose South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem could have benefitted from that advice two months ago? Considering the fact that she just nuked all of her presidential ambitions by vetoing a popular ban against child chemical castration over corporate donations, probably a lot.
You can probably think of a ton of Republicans in Congress over the past two decades who completely sold out the American people for 30 pieces of silver from woke communist corporations.
Sometimes Republican politicians have sold out their voters for ridiculously small amounts of corporate cash. (Looking at you, Trey Gowdy!)
Not anymore. We won’t let them get away with this any longer, especially since financial disclosure forms are so easy to access on the internet. If a Republican takes corporate cash from Walmart or some other woke corporation and then tries to sell us down the road, we will find out and we will fillet your career like a tasty northern pike. Just ask former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), or any number of GOP sellouts who suddenly retired when Donald Trump was elected.
Ted Cruz is exactly the Senator to lead this separatist movement for the GOP. He knows from personal experience (and the revolutionary ideas about campaign funding from an extremely handsome former rebel political consultant… *ahem*) that Republicans don’t need corporate cash from Walmart or Coca Cola or Amazon or any other America-hating entity to win elections.
The average donation amount that Republican candidates receive, in every single election cycle and whether it’s for a House, Senate or presidential race, hovers between $30 and $60. And it’s been that way since the 1990s.
Most Republican candidates are financed by husbands and wives sitting around the kitchen table and opening up their checkbook for a candidate that they believe is going to be representing their values and ideals in office.
And yet time after time after time, GOP politicians will get that one big, fat check from Walmart or some other entity, and they sell out the majority of their donors because of the big fat check.
Here’s the thing that Ted Cruz gets: You, me, and all the other small-dollar donors who are willing to chip in $20, $50 or $100 for a political campaign outnumber the Walmart/Coca Cola/transgender-mania communists in the corporate world. And when you cast a wide net on the internet for donations from normal people, you can compete against that corporate cash and still win elections.
Crowdfunding is one of the most normal things in the world now to people, thanks to the expansion of the internet. And because Ted Cruz was willing to tear up the old GOP playbook during his first Senate campaign in 2012, he now sees the direction that the wind is blowing. If the GOP wants to stay viable as a political party, they need to let go of that corporate money teat and embrace the same crowdfunding tactics that I suggested to the Cruz 2012 campaign all those years ago. You’re welcome, America!
