George Allen Is No Ted Cruz

But he might convince many Virginia TEA Party Patriots to help him win his race against Tim Kaine if he would just act more like Cruz.

All the polling I have seen since this race began shows Allen and Kaine running within the margin of error, with neither able to gain a decisive advantage. That should be telling the Allen campaign something; they need the ground game of the TEA Party to insure that the next Senator from Virginia is a Republican, not an Obama lackey.

In an attempt to gain the support of Virginia TEA Party members, Allen offered up a “Red Meat” document that outlines the things Allen would be willing to do if elected, but the one thing that is noticeably missing in this document is any willingness on his part to commit to actually reducing the size and scope of the federal government to constitutional levels.

Allen is unwilling to embrace the concept of limited government and the Constitution, and put his name on a plan to eliminate whole departments, offices, agencies, and other organizations in the federal government that have no constitutional basis, such as the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, and the EPA just to name three.

Until Allen is willing to embrace these basic tenets of the TEA Party, he cannot expect TEA Party Patriots who are dedicated to smaller constitutional government to help him get elected.

Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock George. Time is running out.

I for one am throwing my efforts and funds behind helping elect real conservative candidates like Cruz, even though they are not from my state. At least I can pick candidates that represent my conservative values.

With Allen, who knows? He won’t commit, so we can never be sure who or what he is representing.

I won’t put my name on the line to support a candidate that does not, will not, represent my values. I cannot in all good conscience tell others that Allen is a conservative when he will not commit to conservative ideals.

I am making my stand George, whether others do or not.

If you’ve read this and want to criticize me for my stand, please go visit the Senate Conservatives Fund first, and ask them why they are not endorsing George Allen.

By supporting proven conservative candidates like Cruz and others, I will not have to once again compromise my principles for a candidate that is the darling of the party elite, but in the end does not represent my values or those of the Republican Party.

    Cameron,

    Virginia is not Texas. Ted Cruz won the primary and he will win the general election in Texas without any problem whatsoever.

    Ted Cruz is a shoe in at this point. Do you know what his campaign will do with the “resources” you provide him at this point? Use it to help other GOP candidates in battleground states get elected.

    I know this as fact, because he said so at a fundraiser here in Texas. Afterwards I specifically asked him, as we talked personally, to help George Allen in his fight against Tim Kaine.

    Ted Cruz can run on the platform he ran on because Texas is a RED STATE. You are deluding yourself if you think Virginia is anywhere close to where Texas is at the voting booth.

    It’s not. If you want candidates who can run on platforms like Ted Cruz, then move to Texas. That’s what I did.
