When We Look At Ted Cruz, We See the Alamo

t was not until the last 24 hours, after 13 days of siege, that a real battle ensued. In the battle, the Alamo defenders fought valiantly and nearly all were killed including Jim Travis, Jim Bowie, and Davey Crockett. The defense of the Alamo allowed General Sam Houston to build a large enough army to route Santa Anna and his men. “Remember The Alamo” was a constant battle cry at the Battle of San Jacinto, six weeks later.

Two Western governments once connected by an energy which flourished upon the land somehow found themselves compelled to sell their citizens short.
