Senator Cruz is doing a marvelous thing for the country right now. He lengthy speech on the Senate floor today against the funding of Obamacare is a remarkable example of the power of freedom of speech. Many will say he is wasting his time. I think not. Sen. Cruz is doing the remarkable... he is breaking the pattern, the monotony of life. The Senate is a channel that people can watch (on the Internet anyway) tonight. That gets noticed. People tune in and out... but they wonder what is going on, how it can happen, and what it could mean.
What a marvelous example of the power of the First Amendment and of value of our constitutional rights.
