Your lawmakers are voting more than once for the same bill, they are actually voting for their buddies and are even blatant enough to cast other lawmakers votes for them when they have their back turned!
these clowns need to be in jail not tomorrow, not after breakfast NOW!
PLEASE SHARE THIS VID WITH EVERYONE AND DEMAND JUSTICE!
What would happen to you if police caught you on video fraudulently voting? Would cops quickly arrest you and throw you in jail, only to have the District Attorney immediately charge you with fraud?
What would happen to elected government officials if they were caught doing the same? Absolutely nothing?
In fact, our representatives in the U.S. government has become so brazen, that they commit fraud in plain view, on a daily basis, while at the same time trying to pass laws that would further restrict and criminalize the public for doing the same.
This is a clear sign of excessive government, when the government is so large and overwhelmingly powerful that it's agents can abuse the civilian population without any sense of guilt, remorse, or fear - when government officials deny charges of illegal conduct made against themselves as a matter of semantics, and when agents of the government expect and get immunity from any of their actions; actions that would be criminally prosecuted upon any other citizens.
The few standing up for freedom, liberty, and the Constitution, such as Congressman Ron Paul, who has been called the Thomas Jefferson of our day, are the only hope for America; the only hope for returning our empire-sized government to its proper Constitutional levels of national defense, upholding the law, and protecting the rights of the people and individual liberties.
Riddle says voting for other members is done out of necessity. "We have a lot of amendments," Riddle said. "We don't have lunch breaks, dinner breaks, restroom breaks." Necessity or not, one thing is clear, they aren't supposed to be doing it. According to the official House rules--written, voted and approved by lawmakers at the beginning of the session--"Any member found guilty by the House of knowingly voting for another member on the voting machine shall be subject to discipline deemed appropriate by the House."
So, should lawmakers do it? "No, there's no question," Weiss said. "On face value it appears to be a blatant violation, an affront, of their own rules." It is against their own rules. But the issue is with enforcement. It is the speaker's job to make sure rules are followed. When CBS 42 asked Speaker of the House Tom Craddick's spokesperson about it, she just shrugged her shoulders and said it was up to the House members to decide what do to if there's a violation. Although the practice is widespread, CBS 42 couldn't find any instances of lawmakers being disciplined for voting more than once.

So, what is new?
Our Founding Fathers would have...
Oh hell, nevermind.
Some pigs are more equal than other pigs.
I read that somewhere...
This is the state of Texas, not the federal House of Representatives.
Which is all well and good, but I'm more of a Lincoln/Hamiltonian Republican.
Now THAT is my version of........ I HAVE A DREAM.
Great. That's just frikken great.
In my dreams...
There is no way any of the current administration would face justice. There is too much of a good ‘ole boys club among politician no matter the party, race, age, or sex. They are equal opportunity lawbreakers.
