WOW! Sen. Coburn lays it out: Sell your vote and we will publish it
Patriot Room ^ | 03/18/10 | Clyde Middleton

Posted on 03/18/2010 11:20:30 AM PDT by American Dream 246

SEN. TOM COBURN (R), OKLAHOMA: I want to send a couple of messages to my colleagues in the House.

If you voted no and you vote yes, and you lose your election, and you think any nomination to a federal position isn't going to be held in the Senate, I've got news for you. It's going to be held.

Number two is, if you get a deal, a parochial deal for you or your district, I've already instructed my staff and the staff of seven other senators that we will look at every appropriations bill, at every level, at every instance, and we will outline it by district, and we will associate that with the buying of your vote. So, if you think you can cut a deal now, and it not come out until after the election, I want to tell you that isn't going to happen. And be prepared to defend selling your vote in the House.

“If you voted no and you vote yes, and you lose your election, and you think any nomination to a federal position isn’t going to be held in the Senate, I’ve got news for you. It’s going to be held. “

Obama will just create a Czar position. The Republicans haven’t complained about the ridiculous number of Czars so far.

There have been a number of Republican senators and congressmen who have taken a quite active stand against Hussein and his idiot agenda. Coburn, Ryan, Cantor, DeMint, Kyl and some others have been pretty consistent in their open opposition. The problem is not so much that the GOP won’t confront the rats as the media has usually refused to cover them or has mis-characterized their actions to make them look foolish or evil. With the rise of FOX and the net the coverage has increased and it is harder to lie about what was said or done. It’s not all “hands across the aisle” horse hockey (that kind of stuff is left to the RINO wing of the party otherwise as the McCain-Snowe wing and its adherents).

Would someone please explain to me why the former governor of Illinois — Blago — got impeached for trying to sell a senate seat and yet votes are blatantly, I mean out in the open, for sale on this health care bill?

To me the principle is identical. That is, if one is corrupt, so is the other.

I just sealed the envelope... Last year, I stopped ALL my contributions to RPV and RNC.

Now I just send money to STAND-UP conservatives.

This could only have been made better with closing the statement with:

"To sum it up, if you sell your soul to Obama for trinkets, I will make it my life's work and the work of many, many others to well and truly destroy you and pi$$ on your grave. That is all."

Many say that the vast majority of senators and representatives are merely parasitic prostitutes!

However, this view is far too harsh and demeans prostitutes! After all, prostitutes merely "sell" (rent) something that they, themselves OWN!

Senators and representatives are more accurately described as "PIMPS"!

They "Sell" the freedom and wealth of their fellow citizens and UNTOLD generations to come in excahange for their power and perks of office!
