With just over a week until the first 2016 election contest, Sen.Ted Cruz remains a top Republican presidential candidate.
An image of Ted Cruz’s high school bio recently resurfaced on the Internet, showing that the Texas senator has followed the career path he sketched out in high school to a verbatim.
Just as he has proven his ability to win over almost the majority of conservative voters, he has accomplished pretty much everything he said he wanted to achieve after high school.
From Daily Wire:
Reading Senator Ted Cruz’s high school yearbook page, which included the Republican presidential candidate’s future aspirations, is nothing short of prophetic.
As a senior in high school, Cruz aspired to study at Princeton University, attend Harvard law school, achieve success as a lawyer, hold public office, and eventually run for President of the United States—and win:
Upon graduation Ted hopes to attend Princeton University and major in Political Science and Economics. From there he wants to attend law school (possibly Harvard) and achieve a successful law practice. He then wants to pursue his real goal—a career in politics. Ted would like to run for various political offices and eventually achieve a strong enough reputation and track record to run for—and win—President of the United States.
Here are just some of the other achievements Cruz accomplished with his law degree, per Young Conservatives:
- Served a law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist, making him the first Hispanic ever to clerk for a Chief Justice of the United States
- Served as Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 to 2008, making him the first Hispanic Solicitor General in Texas, the youngest Solicitor General in the entire country and the longest tenure in Texas history
- Authored over 80 SCOTUS briefs and presented over 40 oral arguments before The Court
- In the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Cruz assembled a coalition of 31 states in defense of the principle that the 2nd Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms
- Presented oral arguments before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit
- Defended the Ten Commandments monument on the Texas State Capitol grounds,
- Defended the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools
- Defended the State of Texas against an attempt by the International Court of Justice to re-open the criminal convictions of 51 murderers on death row throughout the United States
Cruz didn’t just “run” for political office; he ran and won. In 2012, Cruz pulled out an unlikely win and became a senator in Texas.
Earn a reputation and track record strong enough to run for President of the United States. Check.
Cruz became a maverick in the U.S. Senate, known for sticking to his conservative principles even when it meant taking it on those in his own party. Tackling the issue of Obamacare was a key fight for the senator. Cruz is currently second in national polling to real estate mogul Donald Trump.
Cruz didn’t just accomplish his goals. He blew them away.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you set the bar high for yourself.
This shows good planning, excellent execution and a solid determination to succeed. All this just adds to Cruz’s conservative credentials and proves his unwavering relentlessness to destroying the liberal agenda.
