Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Venezuela, Iran, and Cuba’s Castro dictatorship

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) takes the Senate floor and delivers a speech denouncing the tyranny and repression of the dictatorships in Venezuela, Iran, and Cuba:

“This is the moment to point out that Venezuelan dictator Nicholas Maduro’s abuse of his fellow citizens is intolerable to the United States. If he wants better relations with us, he should start by listening to the demands of his own people. He should lift the cloud of censorship that he is using to isolate Venezuelans from each other and from the rest of the world. And the United States should do all it can to help the people of Venezuela as they choose a different path, a path of freedom and prosperity, that will return this one-time enemy to its traditional role of our partner and friend. It would benefit them, it would benefit us, and it would benefit the world.”

  1. “Libertarians, the Marxists on the right.”

    I am so stealing that, Humberto!

    I find it fascinating how so many Libertarians seem to live in the same fantastical, puppy dogs and candy canes, zero sum world occupied by clueless and zealous leftists and yet rarely do they ever run into each other.

  2. (1) Both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have delivered superb speeches on Venezuela and Cuba on the last couple of days. Bravo to both of them.

    (2) The economics side of Libertarianism is the only part of it that makes sense; the other part, the ridiculous and naive foreign policy side, is wacky and loony beyond description.

    (3) A Russian spy ship has docked in Havana. Look up the story and post it.

  3. Definitely not a fan of the likes of Jeff Flake, or of the foreign policy delusions of most libertarians, uppercase and lowercase L. But economically, libertarianism not only makes sense, it makes much more sense than what passes these days for “conservatism,” which rather than calling for smaller government and putting forward plans to actually shrink it, seems to be saying of late, “let’s grow the government more slowly.”
