Man Tries to Fool Cruz into Signing Communist Manifesto, Here’s What Happened

Ted Cruz has been campaigning in Indiana in advance of that state’s crucial primary.

Because Ted Cruz, unlike the current frontrunner, has made a habit of reaching out to the grassroots through a boots-on-the-ground campaign, he meets up with some interesting people.

In Elkhart today, a young man approached Sen. Cruz and asked him to autograph an “economics textbook.”

It was a Communist Manifesto.

Cruz did not take the bait — at least not in the way the man anticipated. Cruz did sign the book, but added in large script, “Millions have suffered because of this.” He also told the young man (who sheepishly told Cruz, “Ah, you have a good sense of humor”), and informed him that as the son of Cuban immigrants, his own family has suffered under Communism.

Even people who don’t support Cruz applauded his quick-witted response.

A video of the brief exchange can be seen here at the website of a local Indiana TV station.

Compare that with Donald Trump, who cluelessly retweets anything mentioning him that strikes him as flattering, even if it comes from the Twitter accounts of alleged white supremacists who relish trolling him.

She is a Baby Boomer who never became a hippie, an active Republican who first registered as a Democrat (okay, it was to help a sorority sister's father in his run for sheriff), and a devout Lutheran who practices yoga. Growing up in small-town Indiana, now living in the Kansas City metro, Kim is a conservative Midwestern gal whose heart is also in the Seattle area, where her eldest daughter, son-in-law, and grandson live. Kim is a working speech pathologist who left school system employment behind to subcontract to an agency, and has never looked back. She describes her conservatism as falling in the mold of Russell Kirk's Ten Conservative Principles. Don't know what they are? Google them!
