Ted Cruz is a master debater, as he has been since he was young. Even if you don’t like Ted Cruz, and many don’t, no one doubts that he has a silver tongue.
This Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz has accepted Alyssa Milano’s challenge to debate, and the actress has no idea what is about to happen to her.
“I’d be happy to sit down & visit next week about uniting to stop gun violence & about the Constitution. If we can have a civil & positive conversation—in the spirit of 1 Peter 4:8 as you suggest—despite our political differences, that might help resolve the discord in our Nation,” Ted Cruz tweeted.
As Milano should know, this is what she’s up against, from Ted Cruz: “An excellent Q, worth considering carefully w/o the snark of Twitter. It is of course not the right to a modern-day firearm that is God-give but rather the right to Life & the right to Liberty. Essential to that right to life is the right to DEFEND your life & your family.”
“The right to self-defense is recognized repeatedly in the Bible, eg Exodus 22:2: “If a thief is caught breaking in at night & is struck a fatal blow, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed.” (Note, though, verse 3 says it IS murder if during daylight (ie, not self-defense).”
The Declaration of Independence acknowledges our rights thusly: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…”
“Playing politics with deranged crimes — and trying to use them as an excuse to violate the constl rights of law-abiding citizens—won’t make anybody safer. Forcible gun confiscation (as some 2020 Democrats urge) won’t prevent mass-murders. But it would weaken our self-defense…”
A future debate between the two of them would be an interesting thing to watch. They are up against each others throughts for quite a while.
But, you never know with the left, their words mean very little nowdays. The media should push the idea though, they sure will benefit from every second of it.
