Hats off to Ted Cruz and Mike Lee for actually standing for something. It’s been a revelation to me that Republicans and Democrats alike are afraid of these two new junior congressmen. The "established" congressional people don’t like it when somebody new threatens them with a new idea — and especially one that makes some sense!
Maybe it is time for a third party. Maybe those of us who believe in standing up against the government’s massive control of our lives should break away from tradition and support those who are willing to take the heat when they actually fight for what they believe in.
Perhaps the tea party is a credible third party as those are the only people who really stick to their beliefs and values, even among a tremendous amount of opposition.
