Ted Cruz

3815e96b0c037d0d710f6a706700b9b4Ted Cruz is announcing a bid for the presidency. From day one, the Republican National Committee will be trying to take him down. How hard that will be to do depends upon how popular he is in the beginning. If his popularity is much higher than that of Jeb Bush, the Republican National Committee might not be able to get rid of him.

Here is what Fantasy Free Economics knows about Ted Cruz.

1.) He is a sociopath.
2.) He is an accomplished liar.
3.) He is completely ruthless.
4.) He has little understanding of the financial markets.
5.) He is a military hawk.

Were he not a sociopath, an accomplished liar and completely ruthless, he could never have been elected to the Senate. Texans won’t vote for a candidate that tells the truth and politics is so competitive that only a sociopath can get elected to high office.

We know from his speeches that he is clueless about economic issues. So far he has been pretty much a military hawk.

This doesn’t sound so good but in terms of potential, but he is way out ahead of the pack. For a Republican candidate, Cruz is the choice of Fantasy Free Economics. Cruz does not seem to be offended at all with the fascist approach that is currently crippling the country.

However, most of the other candidates have helped create the fascist system we are currently suffering under, Jeb Bush especially. Cruz could possibly change and favor a free market system. Probably Cruz’s strongest characteristic is that the rest of the Republican Party hates him.

Just remember, there is no such thing as a good president. Any president will spend as much as is possible, and all since Calvin Coolidge have. Presidents run for office for their own benefit and it is wrong to expect one to work on behalf of voters unless there is constant pressure from citizens.

The plan Cruz has of abolishing the IRS is not as good as it sounds. The fair tax has a fine name but there is more to a good tax code than fairness. One thing is for certain. As long as the current lawmakers are in place, there is no way for the vast majority of Americans to benefit from a change in the tax code. That will help only the 1% who are responsible for pushing Congress to pass laws. No elitist in his right mind is going to lobby for something to help the poor and middle class.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
