And he's just a n00b.. wait until he really hits his stride.
“...Republicans should demand a 60-vote threshold for any effort that would add Obamacare funding back into the House bill....”
Didn’t Reid already reject this?
The House must hold the line. They and they alone wield the constitutional power of the purse. They must not appropriate funds for obamacare come hell or high water. This is not just about health insurance. Obamacare strips the constitution of its limits on government and strips us of our individual rights! And the SCOTUS won't stop them.
Call, email, write, visit your Reps! Hold the line! No funds for the unconstitutional, nation-wrecking obamacare!
We the people are the final arbiters of all things constitutional!
This is OUR fight and we can win it! We must win it! Never retreat, never surrender!
“....Some argue the law should be delayed. Defunding delays it for everyone, not just the ruling class in DC. In essence, defund exempts everyone from the law. Defund gives a waiver to everyone....”
Makes sense doesn’t it?
As a next step (assuming the scum Demonic Party sends back the CR bill with the defunding measure removed), why can’t the House send CR’s funding a portion of the government at a time? First the military, social security, etc. until each department has been funded, then stop just short of a CR for Ocommiecare?
Sent an email last night to Cornyn to tell him if he voted for cloture I would have to vote for another Republican in his primary and how that hurts me since I had supported him for years. He was on my side when a Democrat DA filed a charge against me to then Attorney General Cornyn. I knew I was right and Cornyn also knew, by law, I was right and that decision came down on my side.
I hated to send that email. I told him to stand by Texans and Cruz and do not vote for cloture or he would lose his Texas supporters, including me.
He won’t be sucessful his time.
The prize will be when he becomes POTUS because of the trainwreck caused 0bamacare.
Cruz is DA MAN!
This man is the greatest American politician I have seen since Ronald Reagan.
Every word he says is priceless.
Thanks for posting this, Jim.
gave me chills reading this speech! GO TED!!!!!!!
As I compose this, Im watching Ted Cruz as he filibusters to halt the disaster called Obamacare. I hope you will watch it as well.
If he has used it once, hes used the phrase ...we no longer listen to the people, our constituents... over a hundred times. And hes right...they dont. And the fact is, THEY NO LONGER NEED TO.
Ive sent my little rant on this topic before but Teds honest comment compels me to do so again.
WHY THE POLITICAL RULING CLASS NO LONGER LISTENS TO US!
Among others, Thomas Jefferson warned that the financial disaster we now face would be but one of many problems paper money would visit upon us if we allowed our leaders to remove the backing from the currency, to wit:
When the servants if the people are paid with something other than that which the people themselves have produced (i.e. the real, tangible products of their labors or some fixed and real medium of that exchange), the roles of master and servant will be reversed.
It was believed by Roger Sherman and a majority of those at the Constitutional Convention that un-backed currency would so damage the fabric of the nation that they ATTEMPTED to prohibit it with these few words at Article 1, Section 10, requiring the states to enforce the prohibition: No State shall make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;
If the people and their states grew inattentive to this matter (and they have!), Jefferson also saw this problem ahead:
In a letter to John Taylor in 1816, he wrote, And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.
We have been swindling futurity for a long time and this is now where we find ourselves. If the government, through its banker masters at the Federal Reserve, can create money from thin air, they certainly dont need ours every April 15th. That annual sheep shearing is simply an attempt to vacuum enough of the excess paper from the system to keep the rest of us from catching on to the biggest theft ring in the history of man. They have now created so much that their attempt is failing and failing badly to a point where all but the dullest among us (Obama voters and his growing cadres of personal and corporate welfare beneficiaries) are starting to get it.
If you understood that last paragraph, you can now make the small leap to an understanding as to why the progressive utopian welfare state hacks in Washington dont give a damn WHAT you think. Their power to create all the money they need to fuel their infernal machine and fill the gaping maws of enough of those hoards of welfare constituents to assure their perpetual re-election means that ready THEY NO LONGER NEED YOU! They have become, as Mr. Jefferson predicted, our MASTERS.
That they are taking down a nation and a system that has provided more wealth, safety and abundance to more people than any other in history matters not to them. Failing to grasp the lesson of the French Revolution, they believe themselves to be above the impending disaster.
Were running out of time to get this increasingly rapacious beast back into the cage from which we have carelessly allowed it to escape.
