Yes, God bless Ted Cruz. He takes no bull, looks these aholes straight in the eye and fights for We the People. TED CRUZ IS A TRUE PATRIOT, A TRUE CONSERVATIVE. YOU CAN COUNT THEM ON THE FINGERS OF ONE HAND. MAY GOD PROTECT HIM AND THOSE OF US WHO LOVE THIS COUNTRY AND ARE WILLING TO FIGHT! Mr. Cruz and others like him need our support in any way possible. Let him know how you feel...he needs to hear from us.

Let's see, in Illinois we have leftist Dick Turban Durbin, Rahm Emanuel and the rest of the socialist set in government. And our “Republican” senator, Mark the RINO Kirk. His best bud is Durban, so he said. Sickening and yet we fight on....one of these days there will be a change, hopefully in my lifetime.

May God bless Louie Ghomert. This man is brave and a true patriot..he's not afraid to speak his mind. May God protect him. He is also another Conservative who needs our support in any way we can do so. He needs to hear our praise and encouragement...he needs to hear from us all.

Susan Collins too,eh?

Cruz probably dozed off while she took
15 minutes to say, “I’m disappointed at your unwillingness to go along to get along, Ted.”

The country would be in far better shape if these RINOs saved some of that venom for the other side, but they instead would rather bludgeon the few real patriots willing to take a stand.

“Cruz recounting what a RINO said to him, ‘Now we look like a bunch of squishes.’”

My response to the squishes would be, “You think this the FIRST time you’re regarded as a bunch of squishes? You are most assuredly that, when your conditioned response is to sell out the country for an invite onto the talk show circuit. Damned right you’re squishes.... you’re also useful idiots!!”

So, in effect, what he is saying that a Senator (A STATE say like Maine) is YELLING, BLUSTERING and THREATENTING another Senator (A STATE say like Florida or Georgia) because he chooses to not accept their proposals?

Sound silly? Well, in effect that’s what’s happening. The reps of states yelling at one another is the same as the STATES yelling at each other.

Bring it on, Maine or whoever, we (Georgia, Florida, Texas etc.) will kick your ass this time.

The really sad thing about this is it demonstrates just how broken and f’ed up Washington is. A man is elected by his constituents and gets “yelled at at the top of their lungs” by other elected representatives *merely* for voting as his constituents asked.

If any are still thinking our government is “for the people” this should disabuse you of that notion. The non-elected roles such as Senate Majority Leader, Speaker, Minority Leader, etc have way too much power and have perverted the process.

Wait until they have primary opponents. Then drop the hammer. Up until then, Cruz has to work with these guys. Either that or go into full anti-establishment opposition mode, which would be fun.

We are considering Arizona.. actually any place that did not have 6 months of winter this year would be nice. Maybe Texas, who knows? Can we take over Cuba or the entire state of California please? We could move to the border states and secure the borders ourselves... just a thought.

"Without names, of just what use is this?"

Here's a simple exercise for you. (1) Develop your OWN list of suspects, (2) investigate it on your OWN and then you'll be much better founded as to where to (3) throw your financial support to eliminate those noise makers' future in the Senate.

Oh no, not “yelling”

the Gentlemen don't “yell”, they engaged in “heated discussions”

This is an escalation from the GOP fighting strategy of strongly worded letters!

Not too long ago I ran into Kay (after she retired). I actually liked her quite a bit as Senator (i.e., she certainly wasn’t a Reagan, but she was far from a RINO), and wanted to tell her that I missed her in DC. But with Ted replacing her, that would be a lie.

About 18 years ago I derailed on the convention floor a measure that came out of committee for a professional association. I moved to “divide the question” and each of its three elements fell by majority vote. Many hated me for that but my action forced folks to think about what they were doing instead of just cruising through trusting the committee report. Courage is sometimes doing what you won’t be praised for.

The notable difference is that Ted Cruz truly represents his constituency while MeCain and Mini-MeCain represent & promote themselves to the detriment of their constituency.

I have had the high honor to vote for Ghomert 4 times and Cruz once. I met Cruz at a cattle sale in Center, Texas. Ghomert is fearless and devoted to the Constitution, as is Ted.
