In every presidential election cycle the mainstream media routinely perpetrates the myth that conservative candidates can’t win. Echoing this tired drumbeat, the Republican Establishment inevitably nominates a weak, unprincipled candidate to go up against the Democrat Party machine. That’s how we got presidential candidates John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012. Sadly neither candidate had the constitutional prowess or the unwavering conservative vision to counter President Obama’s “hope and change.”

In fact, in 2012, the Republican Establishment chose the one man who could not take advantage of Obamacare, the most effective wedge issue in America. The people’s distaste for this disastrous legislation helped usher in two historical conservative landslides in the 2010 and 2014 mid-term congressional elections. But because Mitt Romney had already proven himself a proponent of government-run healthcare during his tenure as Massachusetts Governor, Obamacare – the most divisive of all issues - was off the table in 2012.

Furthermore the ground gained with Hispanic voters and evangelicals in key swing states during the 2004 Bush v. Kerry election, were lost. Romney only received 23% of the Hispanic vote versus 40% for Bush in 2004. And 57 million evangelicals stayed home in 2012 versus 53.7 million in 2004. In essence, neither McCain in ’08 nor Romney in ’12 could get out the vote nor connect with minorities. There was no ground game, no grassroots enthusiasm and no social media strategy.

In his 1975 speech to CPAC Ronald Reagan said that, “Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people”.
Ted Cruz is the candidate who best represents the bold colors of true conservatism and freedom, and his team has the pieces in place to win the Republican nomination:

Ted’s proven track record, his Hispanic background and his steadfast Christian faith make him the ideal candidate to win back the lost ground of the past two elections.

On the key issues that matter most to American voters, Ted has been right every time.

Unlike Jeb Bush, the Establishment’s preferred candidate, Ted has demonstrated his appeal among grassroots conservatives, bringing in $10 million from 90,000 donors in the first 100 days of the campaign!

Ted has a history of connecting with Hispanic voters. In his run for Texas Senator he garnered 40% of the Hispanic vote. To win a swing state like Florida, Ted would need to receive 66% of the Cuban vote. Considering that Bush won 78% of the Cuban vote in 2004, and that Ted himself is of Cuban descent, winning key swing states with large Hispanic populations is doable.

The 2016 Primary Election Schedule is unlike previous years in that the first 14 states (through Super Tuesday) have 574 delegates (83%) that will come from conservative states. This will make it very difficult for the Establishment candidate to destroy the conservative challenger, as done in previous years.

While Ted’s candidacy has great momentum, he cannot win this battle alone. We must mobilize a grassroots army of courageous conservatives to come alongside Ted and make him the next Republican Presidential Candidate. This is a fight that we can win, but we need you to make it happen. Stand with us.

Keep the Promise I -  |  |  @keeppromise1

Keep the Promise I is dedicated to the restoration of America’s greatness, at home and abroad. Our federal government has become a bloated morass of dysfunctional, unresponsive elites. Cronyism, back room deals, executive orders, and inept foreign policy have become business as usual. We are committed to stopping this broken system.

That is why Keep the Promise I proudly supports Ted Cruz, a seasoned and firm Constitutionalist.

As President, Ted Cruz will:

- Restore the faith in a smaller federal government
- Ensure equal opportunity for ALL Americans
- Unleash a dynamic free market
- Rebuild our national defense
- Restore our standing around the world

Join us.

Keep the Promise III
Keep the Promise III PAC -  |

We are a group of courageous conservatives who still believe that America’s best days are ahead of us — but only if we restore the constitutional principles and individual freedom upon which our great nation was founded.

For too long, elite politicians and bureaucrats in Washington have imposed their big-government policies on hard-working Americans, making the American Dream increasingly harder to achieve. They’ve saddled our children and grandchildren with overwhelming debt, they’ve allowed volatile regions of the world to spiral into chaos, and they’ve abandoned the Judeo-Christian values that have guided our nation for more than 200 years.

At Reigniting the Promise, we are committed to the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. We champion free-market principles that allow for economic upward mobility, we value individual liberty, we support states’ rights, we celebrate legal immigration, we advocate for safe and secure borders and a strong, resolute foreign policy, and we embrace the values and traditions that allow a civil society to flourish.

With these principles as our guide, we seek to restore America’s standing in the world as a shining city on a hill — a land where anything is possible.

Today we call on courageous conservatives across the land to receive the torch of freedom passed on to us from our parents and grandparents and help return our nation back to the land of opportunity. Stand with Reigniting the Promise as we reignite the Promise of America.

We want you to join us.

from the website:


America needs a principled and fearless leader who will overturn Obamacare the minute Barack Obama leaves the Oval Office, one who respects the Constitution and will stand up to the ruling class in Washington, and one who will inspire a tidal wave of energy and excitement needed to defeat someone with a political machine like Hillary Clinton.

Who better to do that than the man who stood for 21 hours and 19 minutes on the floor of the U.S. Senate in a historic filibuster against Obamacare and rallied 2 million Americans to sign a petition to end this government overreach?

We need Ted Cruz to run for President!

- Ted Cruz stood up to the gun-grabbing liberals like Dianne Feinstein to protect the 2nd Amendment.

- Ted Cruz fought to stop the IRS from targeting and harassing conservatives for political purposes.

- Ted Cruz battled pro-amnesty supporters like Chuck Schumer.

- Ted Cruz refused to let Harry Reid fund the implementation of Obamacare without a fight.

- Ted Cruz exposed senators of both parties for giving Obama a “blank check” to rack up unlimited debt after they first tried using Senate rules in a desperate attempt to conceal their vote.


It's time for Americans to kick-start a national campaign to draft Ted Cruz. We can't sit on the sidelines and allow a repeat of 2008 and 2012. That's exactly what Hillary Clinton and the Democrats want us to do. It's also what Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, and the rest of the Republican establishment wants.

The last thing anyone in the DC establishment wants is for grassroots conservatives to start laying the groundwork RIGHT NOW to put one of our own in the White House in 2016.

That's why the Draft Ted Cruz for President petition is so important. Your petition does two critical things:

- It urges Senator Ted Cruz to run for president by showing the overwhelming number of Americans who support him, and

- It lays the groundwork for the kind of grassroots army of volunteers, donors, and early-primary voters that is needed to win in 2016.

Our goal is to collect 1 million signed petitions this year to serve as the backbone of a campaign that will culminate with Ted Cruz taking the Oath of Office as the 45th President of the United States on January 20, 2017.

It's time for conservatives to be proud of their vote again. Please sign the national petition to draft Ted Cruz for President.
