Senator Ted Cruz will announce his candidacy for president at Liberty University later today.

Here are three things Democrats tell us that everyone needs to know about wannabe President Ted Cruz:

-He led the GOP's government shutdown, costing the economy a staggering $24 billion, as part of a personal crusade to take away quality health care from millions of Americans and give control back to the insurance companies.
-He has obstructed everything from raising the minimum wage to paycheck fairness to immigration reform.
-He would give corporations and the richest Americans huge tax breaks, at the expense of working Americans.

This is all true, but they missed the one big thing that was boldly staring them right in the face: he is announcing his candidacy based on a violation of our constitution, the separation of church and state.  He is announcing his candidacy at a religious institution founded on the premise that biblical law rules over sectarian law. This is obviously as wrong for the world as it is wrong for the United States; do Catholics, Baptists, Lutherans, Jews, or Muslims tell us what God wants not to mention atheists. We all know what is fundamentally wrong with the Middle East; it is a government by caliphs, representatives of God.

I was at a dinner party one night when I heard one of the more intelligent attendees discussing heaven with another guest. From the manner of his discussion and the loudness of his voice, it was obvious he wanted all to hear. What he said was not the point; the point was that he felt sure he could describe ‘heaven’.  I am certain he felt he could describe what government should be according to “his” perception of what “his” God wants. No one has to agree with him because he knows what he is saying is right. I can hear Ted Cruz telling us what the government should be, “according to God”, which just happens to be the government he wants.

Ted Cruz is a radical who sees himself above sectarian law. Does it surprise you that he sees himself at the head of a government that has no power, except for what God wants, and as strange as it sounds what God wants is exactly what he wants?  Cruz at the Liberty University venue will sound like the dinner guest as he described heaven and be well received—count the number of times he says ‘God’.
