If they don't hear from me today, they will hear from me on election day. Or rather, they WON'T hear from me, because my vote will be for Cornyn's challenger.

We don’t know who talked to Chris Wallace. I wouldn’t be surprised if no one did and Chrissy made the whole thing up and lied to Cruz. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

If I absolutely, positively had to pin a tail on a donkey, I’d go with the guy who “effing hates Cruz.”

Cornyn is up for reelection with the same crowd that just chose Cruz over Dewhurst. Apparently, he is arrogant enough to think he is not at risk, too. If I still voted in Texas, I’d sit home if he is the nominee. These people need to know they are there for a reason other than their own personal gain.

I agree, and all in for a Third Party, here.

As all things stand now, if Palin is “for” it, it’s DOA.

If conservatives are “for” it, and take action, run their guy and win, it’s DOA.

If Cruz types bother to defy the odds against them and run nationally ANYWAY, against all those odds, and actually win, their career is DOA.

We have the ground troops and so do the Libertarians to do the footwork it takes to eject the Party of Bush/Rove.

When I called the NRSC (National Republican Senatorial Committee) yesterday to complain about Cornhead and McConnell, the staffer said they'd not been receiving any calls about them.

Melt the NRSC's phone line!!

You sound pessimistic about the chances of Obama-care being defunded(this year).

Matt Bevin is running against McConnell.

The polls, of course, show him lagging behind Midge. So what! Cruz was behind David Dewberry in the *polls*, too.

Here's Bevin's website.

“Unbelievably, they actually are leading the fight to fully fund Obamacare.”

No its totally believable. RINO’s in action. Send Matt Bevins $10 or $20 for his campaign. If we don’t get rid of these parasites nothing will ever change.

I tried faxing Cornhole's DC office all night (auto redial)...it NEVER answered.

I think the coward has unplugged all phones and faxes while he hides under Mrs Beasley McConnell's coattails.

That’s good news! I was disappointed that I was so easily able to get through yesterday to every single Cornyn voice mail box, including DC, that I called, which meant not enough calls were happening in these districts.

I will try again today.

We need to team up with these other districts grassroot conservatives in Texas. Even the Younger, energetic Libertarians would throw in with us on sooo many of these issues.

Cornyn has to go!

McConnell, Cornyn Whipping Votes Against Ted Cruz

Isn't that a little bit racist?

Why do they call it "whipping?" Slavery days?

Washington went on a crusade (is that racist?) to remove offensive phrases like "hold down the fort," and they want to change the name of football teams.

Why not stop all this talk about whipping other Senators who do not comply with the masters' orders?

Should have a money bomb so it comes out in the news that McConnell’s primary opponent received LOTS of money when it became known that McConnell was going to vote for cloture, allowing a simple majority in the Senate to undo the House’s ONE Constitutional check and balance to the Senate and executive branch.

I need to understand the process a little bit better though. If the Senate amends this continuing resolution so that it funds Obamacare, does it have to be sent back to the House for them to sign off on it, or can the Senate really gut the House’s funding measures and replace it with their own stuff totally outside the reach of the House? If that is possible, I don’t see that the House has ANY check and balance role whatsoever.

I'd say there's only ONE party currently. Democrats and Republicans seem to be one in the same.

I've been hoping for Palin and Cruz to start a NEW PARTY.

The cockroaches are now fully exposed to the light.

And we're going to exert maximum pressure.

So Senate Republicans, who are you going to side with, Mitch McConnell, or We the People? If you choose door number one, we will vote you out.

Thank you for your time. And have a nice day.

He is going to say he voted for the House bill and against Harry Reids amendment funding Ocare, only the astute will know that the vote on closure was the real vote and that he voted for that. So he thinks he can get away with it. I sure hope he has a decent opponent in next years primary. I know I will be voting to retire him.

“Let me see here...public hates Obamacare 60-40 or so. McConnell and Cornyn are pushing to ensure it gets funded”

You are incorrect. They are pushing for cloture so they can then vote no when funding wins 51-49.

This way they can say they voted against Obamacare.

Time to break off and have a conservative party.

Anyone know about either Stovall or Wyatt? Looks like it's time to elevate Cruz to senior senator from Texas. Trying to decide which challenger gets my $$$ and support. Haven't knocked on doors or phone banked since college but looks like now may be the time to come out of retirement.

Have been trying to call his Dallas office and keep getting a busy signal (three times now). Hope it is because of a deluge of calls, but I’ve learned not to get any hopes up anymore. I am going to hear Mr. Stovall speak next Saturday. He will be Cornyn’s replacement.

Now is the time to also give support to the Representatives in the House to be strong, and not go wobbly. The House can refuse to hear what the Senate returns. It has been suggested that the House begin voting on smaller, individual CRs to fund military, and other desired recipients. Make the President, and the idiots in the Senate choose what they want to shut Down.

The Constitution gives the power of the purse to the House. It is not what the Senate wants. It is what they are given to vote on by the House. Our founders were prescient. We must support our Representatives so they will be steady.

The battle has just begun. If Repubs stay consistent, they will prevail!

Failing that, I will be voting for a D for the first time in my life. Texans are not as stupid as you think we are. We are incensed with your double dealing and dirty tricks.

He replied very politely, “Okay. Thank you.” and hung up.

That was my question - whether the Senate version has to go back to the House for approval. The House will just have to send it back to the Senate with the Senate stuff taken out. That could go on forever and Obama wouldn’t have funding for any of his crap. Sounds good to me.

The idea of sending individual measures to the Senate is good, but I’m sure the Senate would just tack Obamacare onto that as well. But it would be hard for them to say that the R’s were shutting down the government if the R’s offered to fund the government one piece at a time and the D’s refused each offer because it didn’t have Obamacare.

Somewhere in there should be a law that prohibits waivers from Obamacare, or that prohibits funding for any program where Congress or federal workers are treated differently than average citizens.
