There has been a persistent Internet conspiracy dogging US presidential candidate, Texas Senator Ted Cruz. It is only a matter of time before Donald Trump threatens to file a lawsuit against Cruz, demanding the truth on if…. Cruz is the Zodiac Killer.
Both of these men have a face: coincidence?
If Katy Perry is really JonBenet Ramsey perhaps Senator Cruz is the real identity of the notorious serial killer who terrorized Northern California in the 1960’s and may have murdered upwards of 37 people? I’m just asking questions.
However I am not alone. In a recent election pole held in the state of Florida, by Public Policy Polling, a reported 10 percent of voters there said they believe Cruz to be the Zodiac Killer. While that may seem like a large percentage given such an outrageous question as “Do you think Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer?’ –Don’t worry, some folks were sensible. 28 percent of Florida voters also said they “weren’t sure” if Cruz was the serial killer.
Others took to Twitter to show their support for the idea that a man who could be the next President Of The United States (in the sense that he has a better shot at it than you or I do) – was in fact the murderer who taunted authorities and eluded capture for decades.
There is only one problem with the theory that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer. The Zodiac killings took place largely in the 1960’s… and supposedly Mr. Cruz was born in Canada in 1970. Not that facts have been a huge burden on this election, so why start now- am I right?
We still are not sure if Cruz is “Kevin” from The Office.
At this week’s Republican presidential debate candidates Donald Trump and Senator Cruz got into an argument on the government’s role in providing healthcare to those unfortunate individuals such as the homeless, who have absolutely no means to pay for treatment. Trump took the position that at a minimum the government shouldn’t let citizens die in the streets and as president he would see to that lofty goal. Cruz upheld his stance that there is no situation where the government should be involved in healthcare, repeatedly asking “who is going to pay for that?” – And now it all makes sense. If Cruz is really the Zodiac Killer, why would he want big government stepping in to save people he has just murdered?
