Being grateful boosts your happiness. Ten wonderful things I’m grateful for. Since every volume on the nearly endless shelf of pop psychology self-help books recommends working up some gratitude as the key to happiness, I’ve conjured up a list of what I’m grateful for. (Please turn your irony setting on.)
Cruz is the son and inheritor of Rafael Cruz, director of the Purifying Fire International Ministry, a “Dominionist/Reconstructionist” religious group. Cruz and his followers share the father’s religious ideals, but what are these “ideals?”
- Elimination of the American state to be replaced by a theocratic dictatorship based on “biblical law.”
- Elimination of all “impure” or “nominal” Christians, including the expulsion and imprisonment of African Americans or “deviants” who stray from traditional Christian values.
- Cruz supports mandatory attendance at approved only churches. Catholicism, Judaism, Islam, Mormonism and other forms of belief would not only be banned but followers would be sentenced to death by stoning.
- “Reconstructed” America would then conquer the earth in a nuclear war enslaving non-believers and racially inferior types who would “serve the righteous.”
These beliefs are no secret, his father repeats these heresies and espouses these same minimally treasonous and more than insane beliefs to all that will listen.
Cruz, who heads the senate committee that oversees America’s courts espouses essentially a version of Sharia Law for the US. However the biblical laws Cruz is sworn to enact are of his own authorship.
He and his personal confidant, Christ himself, stand ready to pass laws and pronounce judgement “on the fly.” Compared to rule by Cruz and his megalomaniac henchmen, an alien invasion might seem desirable.
Cruz who heads the senate committee that oversees space research and exploration believes that earth is 6000 years old and that men and dinosaurs walked the earth together, believes this and states this with some regularity. To Cruz, all teaching of non-biblical history and science is the work of Satan and the anti-Christ, who he believes is Barack Obama.
Millions of Americans cheer when he speaks of silencing women and chastising homosexuals. What he says less often is that, upon the death of his father, Ted Cruz will assume the kingship of America, anointed by Christ himself, who came to Cruz and promises him eternal life.
If you want to know how America will fall, perhaps this man, Ted Cruz, may well bring that about. Gambling boss Sheldon Adelson has promised $5 billion to get Cruz elected. That kind of money can finance more than one 9/11.
