The polling data we should look at are the data showing the deep dissatisfaction Americans feel about the state of the country, its direction, and the uniformly low trust that Americans feel toward their government and political leaders.

It’s time for Americans to have a real choice. We know what the Democratic Party is going to put on the table for them.

A Cruz Carson ticket would give Americans a clear, no-nonsense and honest alternative. Two Americans who are really committed to what America is about and what made it great. Traditional values, limited government, free markets, and a strong national allegiance and defense.

And, of course, given the sweeping demographic changes of the country, it can’t hurt to hear this from two self-made Americans – one of Spanish-speaking roots (Cruz’s father immigrated from Castro’s Cuba) and one African American raised in a ghetto in Detroit.

Both are living examples that personal success is not about government programs but about taking personal responsibility for one’s life. That freedom is about creating and serving not about claiming and taking. And neither have interest in political game playing.

Ironically, the Tea Party was born when Obamacare came to life. Now, as the Obamacare disaster unfolds before us, Americans are starting to understand what the Tea Party saw then.

We shouldn’t be trying to drag the Tea Party back into the amorphous masses. We need the Tea Party out front to lead.

I don’t see a more powerful team to do this than Cruz Carson.
