Texas Voters to Challenge Sen. Cruz Ballot Eligibility

Ignited by the 2008 Obama presidential campaign wherein a man who had previously claimed to be born in Kenya sought the White House, issuing three different forged fake birth certifications from Hawaii, many American voters have been vetting candidates on their own to protect the integrity of public offices.
The one benefit of the Obama era is it forced many Americans to dust off their copy of the Constitution and learn their foundations of freedom again. In that renewed interest, people came across a requirement for the Oval Office in Article II, Natural Born Citizen. Since 2008, an ongoing debate over those three simple English words has caused many political kinships to crumble over pet politicians.
Millions of GOP voters were infuriated by the lack of legal interest in the Obama usurpation case, which resulted in the unchallenged usurpation of the Oval Office for eight long destructive years. But that concern and anger went missing in many GOP voters when ineligible GOP candidates decided to usurp the Oval Office just like Obama, in 2016.
Without exception, the people who challenged Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio and Gov. Bobby Jindal eligibility for the Oval Office in 2016 were the same people who challenged Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. But many who challenged Obama were missing from the challenge of GOP frauds who were attempting to usurp the Oval Office in 2016.
Sen. Ted Cruz raised a reported $89.4 million in campaign contributions for his presidential bid in 2016. He finished second in the GOP primaries behind Donald J. Trump. All of it happened “fraudulently.”
34 U.S. Senators are up for reelection in 2018, 25 democrats and 9 republicans, one of which is Sen. Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz of Texas.
GOP voters in Texas learned in May 2014, that they were defrauded by Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz in the 2012 senate race. In short, it became public knowledge that Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz was a legal citizen of Canada when he ran for U.S. Senate and won in a crazy runoff in 2012. Had Texas voters and campaign donors known that Cruz remained a legal citizen of Canada as of 2012, it is highly unlikely that they would have voted for or contributed to the Cruz for Senate campaign in 2012.
To appear on the 2012 ballot for U.S. Senate in 2012, Cruz had to file an application claiming under oath and penalty of perjury, that he was a legal citizen of the United States, eligible for the office he was seeking and he did. He failed to disclose to Texas election officials, voters and donors that he was in fact, still a legal citizen of Canada at that time and until May 14, 2014.
He must file a similar application again in 2018 to run for reelection to the U.S. Senate, or he cannot appear on the Texas ballot. To date, Sen. Cruz has refused to release any authenticated proof of documented U.S. citizenship.
A group of Texas GOP voters going by “OUST CRUZ 2018” are filing an official challenge with Texas election officials in an attempt to prevent Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz from repeating his fraud of 2012 and secure Texas elections to only honest eligible candidates.
The challenge is being filed with numerous state election officials as well as the Republican Party of Texas. Although many Cruz fans think this challenge is a personal attack against Sen. Ted Cruz, it is an attack against anyone who would attempt to defraud Texas voters by misleading voters and donors in their campaign filings, resulting in the election of ineligible candidates to public office.
Texas democrats are also targeting Cruz. When Sen. Cruz renounced his Canadian citizenship in May 2014, he proved to Texas and the world that he lied on his application for candidacy in 2012. That makes him an easy target for democrats in the fall of 2018.
Rather than wait for a democrat challenger to use this reality to defeat Cruz in the general election in the fall, Texas GOP voters want the situation remedied in the 2018 GOP primary. At present, attorney Stefano de Stefano and former Corpus Christie Mayor Dan McQueen are challenging Cruz in the Texas GOP primary.
How Texas election officials choose to deal with 2012 Cruz fraud will be very interesting. Texas and Federal election laws exist to prevent such occurrences. Election officials and State Party Officials have an obligation to voters and donors – to provide free, fair, legal, ethical and transparent elections. That includes making certain that ineligible candidates never appear on a Texas ballot.
Texans who want honest elections should work with “OUST CRUZ 2018” to hold Texas election officials fully accountable for securing Texas elections in the future. Otherwise, Texas elections will not be fair or legal at all.
