A video posted to YouTube Saturday shows an 18-year-old Ted Cruz sarcastically joking about world domination.
“Take over the world, world domination, you know, rule everything,” Cruz says when asked about his aspirations. "Rich, powerful, that sort of stuff." The footage was taken in 1988, according to the video's YouTube description, while Cruz was attending Second Baptist School in Houston.
The clip was posted by a user named Young Ted Cruz, who told Politico he obtained the video from a classmate of Cruz's who wished to remain anonymous. It surfaced online less than 10 days before the Iowa caucuses, where Cruz is a lead contender along with real estate mogul Donald Trump.

I didn't watch the video, but did he say this in the month of January? Not that it matters, would just make it a little funnier, that's all.
I'm sure a good amount of us on this board have dreamed of World Domination at some point in our lives and probably even stated to a friend. But you'd have to be a real wack job and have a personal vendetta against someone based off a statement to prevent that person from attaining any of their goals.
After all we have a Constitution and 3 branches of government to make sure no one person becomes too powerful.
Now he was 18 at the time folks, some guys at that age sometimes have delusions of grandeur but hay this is kinda creepy now that he have achieved wealth alot of power, and is in line to achieve even more power, world domination?? is a possibility.
Various variations thereof.
If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.
