  •  A very bad title on this diary (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz was educated in the
    good ol' US of A (not Canada).  The diary title is woefully inaccurate and needs to be changed.

    I've read several articles that say his parents brought him to America when he was 4 years old but I don't see that addressed in the Wikipedia article.  I won't bother to cite those because the Wikipedia article's info. is enough to refute this diary's title.

    Per Wikipedia:

    Cruz attended high school at Faith West Academy in Katy, Texas,[23] and later graduated from Second Baptist High School in Houston. During high school, Cruz participated in a Houston-based group called the Free Market Education Foundation where Cruz learned about free-market economic philosophers such as Milton Friedman, Friedrich Hayek, Frédéric Bastiat, and Ludwig von Mises.[16] The program was run by Rolland Storey and Cruz entered the program a 13.[14]

    It's not a question of whether our founding fathers are rolling in their graves but rather of how many RPM they're clocking.
