THIS IS THE EMAIL SENT OUT FROM TED CRUZ LAST NIGHT AFTER HIS SPEECH AT THE GOP CONVENTION.
It was an honor to speak to the delegates at the Republican National Convention. As our cause goes forward, I want to remind you about the stakes. Americans are furious—rightly so—at a political establishment that cynically breaks its promises and ignores the will of the people.
But there is is a better vision for our future: a return to freedom.
If we choose freedom, our future will be brighter. Freedom will bring back jobs and raise wages. Freedom will lift people out of dependency and to the dignity of work.
47 years ago today, America put a man on the moon. That’s the power of freedom. Our party was founded to defeat slavery. Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. We passed the Civil Rights Act, and fought to eliminate Jim Crow laws.
Those were fights for freedom, and so is this.
This fight has never been about a particular candidate or campaign, but because each of us wants to be able to tell our kids and grandkids, that we did our best for their future, and for our country.
We must make the most of our moment – to fight for freedom, to protect our God-given rights, even of those with whom we don’t agree, so when we are old, and our work is done, we will be able to say, “Freedom matters, and I fought to save it.”
I promise to lead the fight for freedom and our liberty every day from the United States Senate.
We can do this.
