What you didn’t know about US Senator Ted Cruz…

US Republican Ted Cruz, Junior Senator from Texas, was the public figure of the Tea Party in the shutdown fight that closed the US government for over a half a month.  In the course of his faux-filibuster, he read among other things Dr.Seuss “Green Eggs and Ham”... to publicise his views against Obamacare.  

Well, not surprising for a Tea Party republican, he’s also against any form of gun control.

But what is less well known, according to Newsweek,  are his views on sustainability, notably on one of the founding documents of the modern sustainability movement, “Agenda 21” that came out of the UN Rio conference of 1992.  For Cruz, it’s nothing short of a global conspiracy:

“Cruz believes Agenda 21, a non-binding 1992 United Nations document on sustainable development endorsed by that well-known radical, President George H.W. Bush, is a sinister "globalist plan that tries to subvert the U.S. Constitution and the liberties we all cherish as Americans." He accuses U.N. plotters of aiming to abolish "golf courses, grazing pastures, and paved roads" and fingers George Soros, a billionaire funder of liberal causes, as the puppet-master behind the plan.”

Now we know how batty the Tea Party really is…
