This is the right message, we need to keep repeating this, it will encourage the brave House members, pressure the Senate, plus it will infuriate the left and the MSM.

because the GOP is too cowardly to phrase his liberty-killing control obsession in these words and keep repeating it constantly

He says what is true. He makes certain it’s true first.
Then he doesn’t blink.

Two people are framing things the right way: Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin. Why can’t they be on a ticket together?

Because it’s his only accomplishment.

That and reducing sentences for cocaine possession.

The House did it, stop giving up, stop hanging our House members out to dry with negativity and start pressuring the Senate! Heck, call Boehner, thank him and encourage him to keep fighting for the right things!

Nothing we have that is going to stop Obamacare and the the communists Democrat party. Even by the time we might get the Senate and keep the House they will not go up against the power of our dictator King Obama. America is finished.

Is this a trick question? He already shoved it down our throats back in 2010, why not do it again?

Yeah, but since it will potentially screw the American public as opposed to some distant mooselimbs he'll make good on the threat.

Everyday I'm more and more convinced that all of his actions are designed to put an end to this country. DeSousa's book The Roots of Obama's Rage and it's follow up really make a convincing case for this. He really makes sense out of 0bama's seemingly contradictory actions.

The Media, dems and half the voters will look at this as something the Republicans did. It how Obama has operated since day one. He didn't do it, Republicans did and the media will run with it.

The NWO order needs obozo care to further their agenda of absolute control. The Bushs are one family that is behind the NWO and Jebby Bush has spoken publicly today against the congress defunding it. I’m afraid the folks behind the NWO will have their way unless they are exposed personally and then jailed or exterminated and their stolen fortunes returned to the people.

What earnings of ours here on stateside has been trashed and crashed and the rest sent out of the country as fast as possible, and with both hands.

There is no conceivable reason to let treason stand. If we are broke for years, still, there must be consequences, and deeper collapse must be stopped, or bust.

But ObamaCare is GOOD.

The bill we had to pass before we could read it is so GOOD that it includes fines for those who don’t buy ObamaCare, so GOOD that it had to be voted on at night on a weekend to dodge the news cycle, and so GOOD that it is worth shutting down the entire federal government to compel the American people to accept ObamaCare.

Somehow, I’m not convinced that working Americans will view a government shutdown with as much alarm as Obama imagines, especially if it includes repealing ObamaCare as a bonus.

Why did Adolph Hitler prefer that the Germans be conquered by the Russians than by the Americans/Brits?

Simple answer is that they ran a system more comparable to the national socialism in which he so fervently believed.

Folks, please note that one of the very few powers that the states have delegated to Congress, via the Constitution, to regulate an aspect of commerce within a state’s borders is the control of mail services as evidenced by the Constitution’s Clause 7 of Section 8 of Article I. So the idea of a shutdown federal government that politicians in DC are now brandishing as a threat is actually arguably close to what the Founding States had envisioned as a normal, peacetime mail delivery day for the federal government anyway, the states uniquely having the 10th Amendment power to regulate, tax and spend for all other “government” services that citizens have been indoctrinated to expect from the feds.

In other words, the idea of shutting down the federal government should arguably be synonymous with the temporary disruption of mail services and little more imo. (Yes, this last statement is admittedly oversimplified because of Congress’s Commerce Clause powers.)

Noting that I will support Cruz for president if Obama guard dog Fx News nominates Cruz for Republican candidate, and also noting that federal government services cannot be shut down at this time without creating major problems, it disturbs me to see Constitution expert Cruz also playing the federal government shutdown game merely as a threat instead of using the situation as an opportunity to teach citizens about the federal government’s constitutionally limited powers.

The elites of the NWO are atheists who believe they’re the only ones who can save mankind. And to do it, millions will have to die. That is their plan.

As for those who claim to be Christian, we should recognize them by their deeds.

Why is Karl Rove spouting the democrat talking points?

He is saying: “The republicans want to shut down the government.”

He is either a turncoat or he’s stupid. Since he isn’t stupid...

The Republicans ARE funding the government, every bit of it that has been funded in the past is being funded by the Republicans.

They do not want to ADD ObamaCare to our spending.

If the Senate refuses to send it to Obama for signature, then THE SENATE is shutting down the government all because a new expense that is already killing the economy, that the President has cut exemption deals with his friends on, and that is now, honestly scored to cost DOUBLE what it was sold as.

The principle is simple, as it is with any home budget:

Last in, first out.

He's done it before, I wish I understood why.

One thing for sure, I don't intend to take his advice on this one, and I have honestly lost trust in the man.

It's a sad thing, I hope he realizes how destructive he has become to America, and stops.

All of us need to pitch in. Cruz is saying we need every conservative to get at least three others to sign the petition, then he wants calls to the House leadership and your individual congress critter thanking them for their stand, asking them to hold their ground. Last, call your Senator, even the blue states.

The ball is in our court.
