By Blaze and Spitfire AMERICAS FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

After the big announcement that Senator Ted Cruz has put his name on the ballot for the Presidential bid in 2016, I have been doing some research into his stands on major issues that we as a nation face. This is a process that we all should be doing now rather than later as each candidate announces their bid, good or bad. Forget party lines and demand better! We can not make another mistake after the direction our great nation has gone under Obama.

Here are 10 key issues that Cruz stands behind.

-The Budget and debt: Mandate a balanced budget.
Cruz supports a Constitutional amendment mandating that Congress pass a balanced budget. He argues that this is the best way to cut down deficits and the debt.

-Corporations: Slash corporate tax rates to 15 percent. End some programs like the Export-Import bank and federal subsidies for renewable fuels.
Cruz is a proponent of a simpler tax code (with no IRS, see below). As part of that, he would end some current tax breaks and lower tax rates. In the case of corporations, he would lower their current maximum rate of 35 percent (with deductions) to 15 percent (with fewer or no deductions).

-Common Core: End it.
In stump speeches, Cruz stresses that he wants to repeal or roll back the Common Core education standards placed on states from the federal government. He is a co-sponsor of Local Control of Education Act, which allows states to opt out without affecting their ability to receive federal grant money.

-Immigration: Block any current effort that lets undocumented immigrants legally remain in the U.S.
Cruz has particularly stressed his opposition to President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. The Texas senator filed a bill blocking the president’s actions, which allow more undocumented residents to gain legal status, including the administration’s waivers for young people brought to the U.S. as children. Cruz argues that those actions encouraged increased illegal immigration.

-The Internet: Do not tax access to the Internet and block “net neutrality.”
Cruz vigorously opposes any federal, state or local taxes for accessing the Internet, even though ending such taxes would cost his home state $358 million a year, according to the National Journal. The Texas senator strongly opposes “net neutrality,” which would block Internet providers from charging different rates or having different policies for different pieces of Internet content. As he implied in a Facebook post, Cruz believes that policy would tie the hands of service providers and blocking innovation.

-Obamacare: Repeal it.
As he displayed in his 2013 23-hour speech on the Senate floor, Cruz is adamantly opposed to the new health care law and wants it repealed in entirety.

-Social Issues: States should be allowed to define “marriage” and set strict abortion limits.
Cruz has said that he personal believes marriage is between a man and a woman and that states should define the term “marriage” for themselves.

On abortion, the Republican lawmaker has called the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalizing the procedure a “dark anniversary”, but has not said whether he would specifically work to overturn it. Cruz has staunchly supported bans on any taxpayer funding of abortion and bans of so-called partial birth abortion.

-Taxes and the IRS: Move toward a flat tax and abolish the IRS.
Cruz supports moving toward a flat tax, which would set a single rate for all Americans regardless of income. With a simpler tax code, the senator argues the IRS would be unnecessary and would like to abolish it as a spokeswoman explained to the Dallas Morning News.

-Iran: Increase and toughen sanctions. End current nuclear talks until Congress approves the outlines of a deal.
His approach is summed up in a bill the Texas Senator unveiled last week. You can read Cruz’ “Sanction Iran, Safeguard America Act” here.

-Islamic State: Don’t send U.S. ground troops, yet.
Cruz told ABC’s “This Week” in February that he does not think the U.S. should send ground forces to fight I.S. now. But he added that if Kurdish Peshmerga fighters on the ground are unable to combat I.S., then the U.S. “should” send troops. He also stated that he thinks the U.S. should send arms to Peshmerga forces.

In closing I again stress the importance of digging deep into our candidates background, voting records, and all the way to key issues that still are pending. No longer can we as a nation make the mistakes of electing people through campaign promises, only to later suffer the consequences.

Please feel free to add any that we have missed into the comments and share with everyone any new information as quickly as possible, time to start asking for change and start demanding it. That is only done through communication of the people. Let’s remember that we should be Americans before Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or Independent.
