Sparking loud rounds of applause from the crowd, Mr. Cruz said Congress needs to rein in the Environment Protection Agency, repeal the “Dodd-Frank” financial regulations, audit the federal reserve and abolish the Department of Education.
“Education is too important for it to be governed by bureaucrats in Washington taking choices away from parents and kids,” he said. “And we need to champion school choice — the civil rights issue of the next generation.”
Bring the crowd to its feet, he closed out his remarks by saying that conservatives have to make a choice between “surrendering or standing up now to defend our liberty.”
“On guns, do we surrender or do we stand up?” he asked, drawing applause form the crowd. “On drones, do we surrender or do we stand up now? On spending, do we surrender or do we stand up now? On debt, do we surrender or stand up now. On the Constitution, do we surrender or stand up now?”
