I’d vote for the trash collector over Cornyn. Well maybe not, the trash collector would probably be an Obozo supporter.

I’m hoping we can primary Cornyn out of office.

Who are you looking at to replace?

RINO Alert. Aisle 13.

We intend to see every RINO, AND, their sympathizers into the loss column. They must LOSE. This has to stop. No more socialist R’s get our vote. We may get a democrat, but the RINOS are through, as in DONE.

Pass the word, innovative— DONE.

We are not Democrat Lite.

It wasn’t that long ago that the Republicans had majorities in the House and Senate, and the Presidency to boot.

Nothing happened.

Boehner is a wuus, he could start legitimate impeachment now, has multiple reasons to.won’t, might cry..so now politics is all about total lies. This country needs to sell off washington dc, to pay the debt, take away the ability of the fedearal gangsta to raise taxes at all, states should have a balanced budget ammendment, and fund what the people want with surpluses for thr federal g. If we cannot support the army we have as our wealth becomes worthles , until we recover our foreign policy is screw yall, take care of yourself, attack us, we nuke you, army not big enough, just bake em. Once we get back on our feet financially, learn from the pathetic cruel and evil we have allowed to ruin the christian founded country.

Cornyn has to go. No more boxing in conservatives.

Like Pavlov’s dogs we vote for the Cornyn types and the Linsay Grahams to save ourselves from Democrats. To hell with that. These guys facilitate Democrats and turn their back on CRUZ, Lee, Jeff Sessions, Rand Paul types, and hang with Democrats solid.

Let RINOS lose. Nothing stops until they actually lose.

We have to beat Republican Establishment before we have a prayer at beating Democrats.

RINOS don’t differ with Democrats, don’t fight Democrats, but compromise and comply with Democrats.

Get off the rat wheel, they are working us over.

The last chance to stop this dictator was 2012 and millions of Republicans kissed Romney off. Didn't vote for King Obama and would not vote for Romney. Some of us tried to tell these idiots that not voting for Romney was a vote for King Obama. We now have just what millions of Republicans wanted. I have no use for ignorance.

Obama deserves to be impeached. Folks need to say that over and over again. But instead they (you) say over and over that Obama will never be impeached. No message, no progress.

Funny how nine out of ten conservatives fall into that trap, isn't it?

Talk about self-fulfilling prophecies.

“Actually, Cornyn is rated among the most conservative of all senators, and for years he’s voted in line with fellow Republican senators more often than all but a few of his GOP colleagues.”

Yeah sure. After he's worked hand in glove behind the scenes with Hairy Reid to ensure that the liberals have the winning advantage. Only then does he cast his safe "conservative" vote.

This is what happens when you elect a president with no experience and no actual skills for the job. You get, “If you won’t play by my rules and let me win, I’m going to take my ball and go home”.

What I don’t understand is why some “conservatives” (note the quotes) are putting significant efforts into defeating a Republican, instead of focusing on defeating the Democrats.

Do you not understand that Cornyn is a back stabbing traitor of the first order, and only pretends to be a Republican?

That man has worked tirelessly in the U.S. Senate to defeat the will of the Tea Party and has done next to nothing to back up or support the junior Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz. He's a despicable quisling who is fully in league with the enemies of the republic.

Before he would be impeached and removed from office about 98 senators would have to be replaced. And all of the 98 have so much dirt on them they’ll never do anything that’s not in their “best interest”.

If impeachment were to happen, there would be massive protests. Then, hopefully, ten times as many patriots would counter protest. And all hell would break lose.

I hate to say it, but it’s going to take some patriots going against the constitution to stop those who are going against the constitution. I’m talking about a president getting elected who will take people like Mathews off the air for lying and inciting violence. And go after the country’s domestic enemies. Not someone who will say “I think we need to move forward.”

I'm not sure that is true. A lot happened and much of that not good. However, what has happened in the last 6 years has been disastrous to the nation. Much of the bad things that happened under Bush were the results of crap put in place by the Clinton administration but to take this back will take time and that starts by getting the Democrats out of power and then working on getting the Republicans to change or remove them from power as well.

Progress can only be achieved if the current crop of Democrats and liberal Republicans can be replaced. As it is now, the Republican Party as a whole is no longer conservative. There are a few possibly conservative members such as Ted Cruz, but there aren't enough of them. Electing more Republicans to both houses of congress won't accomplish the removal and destruction of the Obama regime if we are just going to bring in more cowards and communist collaborators.

It’s truly terrifying that this appears in news programs as just another story. Mark Levin is right. This is nothing less than a coup.

But I wouldn’t be surprised if Boehner is in cahoots with The Commmie. Boehner can use this threat to urge Repblicans to compromise.

“Why are you attacking Boehner — Obama is resorting to EOs, precisely because the House, led by Boehner isn’t doing his bidding.

Why not put the blame where it belongs, on Obama who makes a mockery out of the Constitution.”

Why? Because Barry is getting away with anything he wants in violation of the Constitution. The Constitutional remedy is for the House to impeach him.

Since Boehner is not following his REQUIRED duties as per Constitution, he is as guilty as Barry.

Think of a bank robber robbing a bank. If police look the other was, aren’t they as guilty as the robber, who has no incentive to stop robbing banks as he no one will arrest him.

Agree, impeach him. Clinton was neutered when all the dirt came out during the hearings in the House.

he never recovered, no matter what the newsboys say.

The screen name you chose is quite correct. Everything you said is quite logical, but unfortunately we do have a lot of “cut-off-your-nose-to-spite-your-face” “conservatives” (note I put conservatives in quotes, who like to destroy their own, instead of the real enemy and to add insult to injury, feel very virtuous about it).

REAL patriots and conservatives voted AGAINST Obama.

Notice, even now, even seeing what Obama is doing, they are more interested in getting rid of some Republicans, and giving the Dems an even stronger control of Congress, than putting a serious effort into ensuring Republican control of both Houses of Congress.

If we defeat Cornyn in the primary, it will send shock waves through the RINO republican establishment.

This is much bigger than defeating Cornyn, it is a message to the statist that we've had enough and the Tea Party will not be marginalized.

Sorry, but I fail to recall ANYTHING that was ‘taken back’ by the GOP when they held Congress and the Executive.

In fact, I seem to recall a sorry excuse of “I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system”. That sure wasn’t done by the Bush alone! Neither was the TSA, NSA, NCLB, Part-D, etc.

And RE: your statement of ‘taking time to roll-back’...that sounds awfully similar to Paul Ryan’s latest budget: I’ll save .01%, but sometime in the future.

/rant on
No, no more for me. I’ll be supporting and voting for anyone that talks and walks about doing something T-O-D-A-Y, not in the future. No program/Dept/etc. will be wound down voluntarily (in fact, none have had a real CUT in funding!), they must be ripped up by the roots and terminated NOW. The budget...balanced NOW. Pay down the debt...NOW.

That’s not going to happen w/ the current gaggle of dog squeeze in ‘leadership’. And sure as sh!t won’t happen by ‘working from within’ and supporting the Party that’s been laying-low while stabbing everyone outside of D.C. in the back.

I’m not backing Republics, or any party in fact; I’ll be voting for Constitutionalists. Time to restore the Republic or re-start the whole gov’t process.

Ah, wrapping oneself in the protective flag of patriotism.

I would rather have a minority of steadfast and vocal members who would use every means at their disposal to halt the further erosion of our Rights and Liberties than a feckless majority that would bend-over to ‘reach across the aisle’ in advancing the demise of the Republic.

The House is currently GOP controlled...so where is the push-back? Where is the fight? Where are the speeches on any/all media that would put a mic in front of their face(s)? What difference would it make to have both Houses with GOP majorities when they promulgate every idea/law of their ‘opposition’?!

At this point, not too concerned as main idea is to ensure Cornyn has a runoff so he has to defend his record.

Exactly. If he's forced into a runoff election, there's a very good chance he'll lose. That's how we got Ted to the Senate, although he wasn't running against an incumbent. I suppose one could argue that he may as well have been, because of Dewhurst's stature in the state. I believe the dynamics here will be similar.
