Twenty five Republicans voted with Senator Reid and the Democrats. They are:
Lamar Alexander TN, (At the founding of America, this man would have been a Tory.)
Kelly Ayotte NH (Patriots warned me three years ago not to put her on the Liberty List. I should have listened.)
John Barrasso WY (Surprised? Remember Wyoming gave us Al Simpson.)
Roy Blunt MO (I understand—you don’t know who Roy Blunt is.)
John Boozman AR (Another Liberty List mistake.)
Richard Burr NC (See Roy Blunt.)
Saxby Chambliss GA (No Surprise here. See John McCain.)
Jeff Chiesa NJ (Here’s a vote Obama and Reid can count on.)
Daniel Coats IN (This is another disappointment for the Liberty List.)
Tom Coburn OK (A disappointment for every list.)
Thad Cochran MS (See Saxby Chambliss above.)
Susan Collins ME (I can’t even imagine her voting against Reid.)
Bob Corker TN ( Remember when you thought he was a conservative>)
John Cornyn TX (Quintessential establishment.)
Lindsey Graham SC (Obviously South Carolina Republicans cannot limit themselves to just one candidate to replace Graham.)
John Hoeven ND (Another huge Liberty List disappointment.)
Johnny Isakson GA (Like Tennessee, another 100% wrong vote state.)
Mike Johanns NE (At least Nebraska has one Patriot, 2012 Liberty Lister
Mark Kirk IL (Need we comment?)
Ron Johnson WI (Perhaps the biggest 2010 Liberty List disappointment.)
John McCain AZ (I agree. We can no longer remember McCain as an American hero.)
Mitch McConnell KY (Running for reelection. No primary opposition?)
Lisa Murkowski AK (Credit Senator Cornyn. By the way, never give to the Senate Republican Campaign Committee.)
John Thune SD (A waisted year for our friend, Mark Skogerboe,)
Roger Wicker MS (Who knows?)
These Senators failed to take a stand in the issue that best defines our unbridgeable divide. It includes lost Liberty, lost life through abortion and, down the road, euthanasia, Government persecution of Christians and so much more. Obamacare was never about anyone’s health. It is simply about the consolidation of money and power in the hands of a permanent governing class.
Senator Ted Cruz emerged as the leader for life, Liberty and property for the next year and beyond. You are aware of his 21 hour 20 minutes “filibuster” three days ago in the Senate. That 105,000 word defense of American principles will be the ground where we take our stand. For readers who are ready to occupy that ground, here is the complete text.
Senator Cruz rose Friday to stand one more time against the Senate vote to pass a continuing resolution (54-44) with the provision to strip Obamacare removed. Cruz declared:
- Obamacare is the greatest job killer in America.
- Obamacare is forcing Americans all over our nation into part time work.
- Obamacare is causing health Insurance premiums to skyrocket all over this country.
- Obamacare is jeopardizing Americans health care all over this country threatening that they will lose their health care altogether.
“Quite simply, Mr. President,” Senator Cruz declared, “Obamacare isn’t working and sadest of all the United States Senate isn’t listening [to the people].” You’ll want to hear all 10 minutes of the Cruz indictment of Obama-Reid-Pelosi Obamacare juggernaut and the tyranny it brings. Here is is:
Hear Churchill in England’s darkest hour, “We shall fight to the end … we shall fight on the seas … we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing-grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the fields—we shall never surrender. And if, which I do not for a moment believe, these islands are lost, subjugated and starving … we shall carry on the struggle until in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forward to rescue and liberate the old.”
Unlike Churchill, we have no New World to rescue us if this present tyranny prevails. This is our fight. We must not fail. Quoting President G.W. Bush, “This will be an age of liberty here and across the world. … The course of this conflict is not known, yet its outcome is certain. Freedom and fear, justice and cruelty, have always been at war, and we know that God is not neutral between them. … We will not tire, we will not falter and we will not fail.”
