Unfair article?

Let me make it clear that I think it is good that this article shows where/how Cruz has acted like a RINO. However, this article seems to have been written by someone who clearly dislikes him. While it is true, the info on this article is relevant and should not be removed, it is also true that Cruz has been one of the more conservative members of Congress, voting consistently with the 30-or-so conservatives in the Senate. Also, I remember listening or hearing about Cruz's actions and speeches in the Senate or on the presidential campaign trail, and it felt great to hear that someone wasn't going along with the establishment. Was it all just show, just so conservative voters would be attracted to him, just like what other candidates do? Maybe, but in the Senate he seems to have a solid conservative record. I will be doing other things here, so I won't be editing this article, at least not yet, but I think this article is too unfair towards Cruz. --1990'sguy (talk) 21:24, 29 October 2016 (EDT)

I agree, this sounds like it is attacking Cruz. He's a solid conservative--more so than Trump. However, some people here (most of all Mr. Schlafly, I believe) have a pretty low opinion of him. For this reason, the news on the home page as well as the content of this page have sounded like one non-stop attack on him since the primaries began. I disagree with this sentiment. His record is clear, and there is a reason why the hated him even more than Trump. Trump is an outsider, so he isn't connected to them, but Cruz is a part of the party, and has been for a while. For one of their own to do and say what he does was simply unacceptable, so they attacked him as much as they could. (They even called his father the zodiac killer, based on an old photo of two people, one of whom they decided looked something like his father.) Anyway, I've wanted to represent Cruz more fairly, but without any support, I've been unable to do so. Trump could do a lot of good, but blasting Cruz just to make Trump look better seems like a bad idea. --David B (TALK) 22:21, 29 October 2016 (EDT)
DavidB4, you are right. Many of the anti-Cruz edits made during and after the primary were made by Mr. Schlafly himself. I could be wrong, but I think Mr. Schlafly's highly negative opinion of Cruz during the primary, during the general, and even after the election has a LOT to do with the failed ouster attempt against his mother at the Eagle Forum. Many believe that Cruz played a major role in the attempt. I personally find the evidence that implicates Cruz to be circumstantial at best, but if the allegations ARE true, then I don't blame Mr. Schlafly one bit for having a personal vendetta against Cruz. I myself would have a very hard time getting behind a man who attempted to destroy my mother's life, even if I agreed with him politically. --Geopolitician (talk) 15:58, 31 May 2018 (EDT)

Cleanup needed

This article doesn't seem to have a coherent narrative. In the opening paragraphs, it transitions from portraying Cruz as the worst of the worst, to portraying him as a conservative darling. As the article continues, it keeps jumping back and forth between said portrayals. Very unusual, especially given that Cruz is included in the "Conservatism" tab as an example of model conservatives. --Geopolitician (talk) 15:52, 31 May 2018 (EDT)
