One Last Time (Maybe) – Is There Anything Ted Cruz Doesn’t Lie About?

In his classless non-concession speech last night, Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) was touting the values of the United States – many of which Red agrees with.  But one particular statement caught Red’s attention.  “America does not wage wars of conquest.”  Well, Ted is either ignorant or as usual lying to serve his rhetorical purposes.  Both the Mexican-American War and the Spanish-American War were clearly started as wars of conquest. And while we let go of much of what was conquered during the SAW – we are still holding on to Puerto Rico, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, and of course we kept everything we took from Mexico in the MAW.
