Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was one of millions of Americans who loved President Donald Trump’s ‘State of the Union’ speech yesterday. He particularly enjoyed Trump’s dig against socialism and the Democratic response to the remark.
“I think my favorite moment in the speech was when the president said, ‘We will never become a socialist country,’” Cruz said during an appearance on FOX News. “And the look of terror — OK, somebody needs to a horror film, to the theme from ‘Halloween,’ because you see the Democrats terrified. About half of them stood and half of them didn’t.”

“That photograph needs to be remembered for a long time. Every Democrat who sat has just told their constituents they want America to be a socialist country. Many of the other Democrats who stood, they wanted also, but they will at least going to pretend for a little while longer. But they sorted the wheat from the chaff, as they say, and they did in front of the whole country,” Cruz added.
The Democrats are becoming more brazenly socialist as the leftist resistance grows more unhinged in their attempts to destroy Trump and impede his MAGA agenda.
“I think he’s, you know, he’s worried about the good ideas like Medicare for all and taxes on the wealthiest and a green new deal and he wants to paint it as socialism,” Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) said of Trump’s remarks.
“And I think he’s worried and he wants to paint it as socialism, but these are actually policies that every industrialized country in the world almost has instituted and built their societies on,” she added.
“I mean look, for me I think a lot of people don’t understand it (socialism). I mean the library and the post office is socialism — so many of the things that we have in our country that we all value is very much based on those values of equality,” said Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the profane Muslim ghetto wench of Detroit who once called Trump a “motherf-cker.”
No matter how much the radical Democrats want to deny it, they are indeed creeping toward socialism. Trump’s bold declaration, loved by Cruz and other patriots, puts the socialists in the spotlight and on notice. It will never happen in the Land of the Free!
