I am thinking of looking into the possibility, here in Texas, for a recall of Ted Cruz.  Anyone here know what the requirements would be?

Not me - just want to encourage you.  You express yourself very well and have an excellent background.  You could make a real difference in the political arena.  Go for it!!!  I'll even help from a distance as a non-Texan.  He is detrimental to representative government.  He got his marching instructions from conservative donor organizations.  He has no intention to move forward in a collaborative way.  He reminds me of the ratings whores on the radio.  He is well-educated and using this non-cooperative, power rush to capture the following of the tea party - and no one else - for his own presidential goals.  His demeanor can keep him in front of the media.  I think he's intelligent like a fox and to the detriment of the country as a whole.  The Heritage Foundation runs things - ugh.

From what I've been able to learn so far, he has the backing of the religious right:

If the U.S. breaches its debt ceiling this week, bringing with it the global financial panic economists predict, leaders of a little-known far-right movement called Christian Reconstructionism can claim partial responsibility. Their goal: to eradicate the U.S. government so that a theocratic Christian nation emerges to enforce biblical laws.
And what of the connection between this group and Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who almost singlehandedly created the government shutdown and debt ceiling crisis? 

Cruz is the son of Rafael Cruz, a Texas pastor who directs Purifying Fire Ministries. According to a biography page for the True the Vote summit in April 2013, Rafael Cruz became active in politics during the 1980 presidential campaign, joining the Religious Roundtable, founded in 1979 to involve conservative Christians in politics. "The Religious Roundtable was a Judeo-Christian organization that mobilized millions of Christians all across the United States and helped elect Ronald Reagan," Cruz said. "It was a precursor of the Tea Party, even before the Moral Majority."

Ann, I agree with what DK said.  Don't know how I can help, but I'm willing.

First, I have to find out if it's do-able. I've never considered recalling an elected official befor and have no real idea of how or when it's possible

Abe,
Wikipedia, shows Ted Cruz, and his family as the type of people who make an effort to make the world a better place. If what Wikipedia reports is true,  he would be the man for the Whitehouse. He has a great track record for such a young man.

The Far-Right Christian Movement is Driving the Debt Default

If the U.S. breaches its debt ceiling this week, bringing with it the global financial panic economists predict, leaders of a little-known far-right movement called Christian Reconstructionism can claim partial responsibility. Their goal: to eradicate the U.S. government so that a theocratic Christian nation emerges to enforce biblical laws. 

That's right -- laws out of the Book of Leviticus prohibiting adultery, homosexuality, and abortion, with penalties including death by stoning.

The key leader of this movement is Gary North, founder of the Institute for Christian Economics in Tyler, Texas. He's a long-time associate of Ron Paul, intellectual godfather of the Tea Party movement -- the very people responsible for Congressional deadlock over the government shutdown and debt ceiling debate.

                  I don't see why everything has to be right wing, left wing, Socialist,
                  this country should be in the middle, no political labels, everyone in
                  the USA one people, religion step in background, the American people
                  would have to vote on every bill that congress wants to pass if 100%
                  of the votes say "NO," , no politician has the rights to say " We know
                  what's good for the American public ! " If they do they should be at
                  once terminated, only the American public klnows what's good for them
                  and I dont' like to hear the bull garbage that they do , they don't !!

                                                     Cheers..Joe....Very Happy
