Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz, ticking off a litany of President Obama policies he opposes, promised Monday to return to a government by Constitution and “stand for liberty” as he officially announced his 2016 presidential bid.
Cruz, speaking to an energetic crowd of students at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, drew from his background to address his faith and what he sees for the future of the country.
As the first major presidential candidate to officially declare, he told the crowd to “imagine a president that finally, finally, finally secures the borders” and drew applause when he promised to “stand up and defeat radical Islamic terrorism.”

Editor’s Note: I’ve seen articles describing anyone raising questions about Ted Cruz’s eligibility as vultures and haters. Naming calling is not civil discourse and nor does it legitimately win any arguments. I believe most of the people who say Cruz is eligible are people of good will. I also feel the same about the candidate. In a spirit of respect for those with whom I disagree, I am adding a link to an article expressing an alternate viewpoint: Is Ted Cruz Eligible for the Presidency?
