Ted Cruz has said so time and time again, most recently in Mount Pleasant, S.C., where he told supporters, "As the father of two daughters, I can tell you we are not going to draft American women into military combat.”

In another town hall meeting on the campaign trail, Ted Cruz gave his opinion regarding American women being eligible for the draft: 

"Listen, we have had enough with political correctness, especially in the military.  Political correctness is dangerous.  And the idea that we would draft our daughters to forcibly bring them into the military and put them in close combat, I think, is wrong.  It is immoral."

Ted Cruz continued: 

"I’m the father of two little girls.  I love those girls with all of my heart.  They are capable of doing anything in their heart’s desire.  But the idea that their government would forcibly put them in a foxhole with a 220-pound psychopath trying to kill them doesn’t make any sense at all.  And it’s yet one more sign of this politically correct world, where we forget common sense."

So, according to Ted Cruz's analogy of women in the military, Danica Patrick should not drive in NASCAR and Rhonda Rousey should not be allowed to fight in Ultimate Fighting ring.

Rhonda Rousey would kick Ted's ass.

Maybe Ted Cruz should have been in the military to have the experience to speak about women who serve!
