Florida Moves to Recall Marco Rubio
The D.C. Clothesline ^ | 06/28/2013 | Tim Brown

Posted on 06/29/2013 3:23:25 PM PDT by deandg99

Earlier in the week, we told you how Arizona has had it with Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake over their persistent push of the Senate’s amnesty bill and began petitions to recall them.

Well it looks like the people of Florida have had their fill of Senator Marco Rubio. A petition has been set up to recall the Florida Senator following his vote on Monday concerning the Senate’s amnesty bill.

We need to recall Rubio, McCain, Graham, Flake and Ayotte for starters. That's my opinion...

Unfortunately, there’s probably no legal way to recall a sitting US Senator.

I also called Trey Gowdy’s office,woman with a lovely oldtime southern drawl (born and raised florida,somehow I missed that). She told me she had heard nothing about Gowdy challenging sissie graham.

Recall Rubio.

Only chance to stop the Amnesty bill is for the House not to consider any immigration related bill at all.

Michelle Bachman explained it. ANY House bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.

Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway.

Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives won’t vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.

Tom Tancredo echos what Michelle Bachmann said.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3036438/posts

call congress . no bill at all from the House

The Founders never planned for the direct election of senators, so there is no mechanism for recall. Senators were to be appointed by state legislators to represent the interest of that state in D.C. The seventeenth amendment was a huge mistake because six years is too long for voters to wait to fire lousy senators.

Its funny, the 17th amendment was supposed to prevent exactly what we see in the Obama administration with Obama acting as the party boss and handing out political favors accordingly. I read somewhere that Obama has appointed more senators to high ranking positions than any other president.

You cannot recall a US Senator or Congresscritter. The Congressional Research Service has a white paper on it that cites the precedents. At best, a recall petition is a non-binding vote of no confidence.

It’s all right. Most of us can think for ourselves and decide whether or not we want to go read it. I’m certainly thankful that you have presumed to protect those who can’t think or decide for themselves but most on here I believe are conservative and know that we make up our own mind and take the consequences for our own actions. Real conservatives don’t really need a nanny don’t ya know.

I'll say it right now.....you don't agree and I don't agree, but those people in those areas WANT and NEED to get reelected.....the rats play hardball all the time to get elected...

anyone really think we can stem the tide of immigration and demographic changes because that is not going to happen, its never going to happen, and its not supposed to happen....

stale countries face changes...

like when the Pilgrims came and the Puritans and all the rest...we chased the Indians away and establish a big ol country...

people feared the Irish...the Italians....

people fear the Viet Namese...

but these things we can not stop....

we got a choice....we can have a muzzie dominated country or a latino dominated country....

I'm very angry about illegal immigration, about all their freebies, and yes, it might just lead to rat majorities for decades...but the elites are not going to change it...

I'd rather have a pub in place....

The only problem is there are only 18 States with Constitutional provisions that would allow for a recall of a Senator or Congressman and Florida isn’t one of them.

Yeah nothing to fear from the democrat party? no everything to fear:

The enemy of the American people is the democrat party. The democrat party controls

1. the news media
2. hollwywood
3. the presidency
4. The senate
5. the gov bureaucracies
5. the unions
7. the universities
8. the schools
9. soros , Lewis,zuckerberg, msny other billionaires are democrats.
10. Obama the main tyrant is a democrat
11. silicon valley, Google etc. are democrats
12. Pelosi, REid, fienstein, Shumer, Durbin , Lois lerner r democrats
13 . the rest of the media
14. IRS , EPA, DHS, HHS, TSA, FBI, etc.
15. liberals control the supreme Court( they approved Obamacare)
15 . Democrats control all the political money .Soros, tides foundation,gov grants,Zuckerberg,Lewis (another billionaire. moveon.org,unions etc.

Democrat party controls all this and more but the media and many others say that everything is the Republicans fault even though r’s have only a few votes majority in the House and that’s it

Democrats want to makes slaves of all Americans, turn us into cattle with less rights than a cow or farm chicken for them to manipulate.

Of course, but we can’t fight the Dems with half our soldiers and most of our leaders being moles for the other side. We will continue to lose all the important battles. Besides, we have a far better chance of getting rid of a leftist Dem in the general election than defeating a leftist RINO incumbant in a primary. We first have to stand together in order to stand against the other side.

We tried in Jersey but even though our State Constitution has ultra clear language that says we can, the leftist traitors on the NJSC ruled that recalling a US senator is unconstitutional. Other states, thankfully are trying and, depending on the language in their constitutions and how many fecal brained dimwits sit on their SC’s, they will hopefully succeed.

Most of us can think for ourselves and decide whether or not we want to go read it.

I don't recall having expressed any opinion one way or the other about what you should read.

Perhaps you could point it out for me.

most on here I believe are conservative and know that we make up our own mind and take the consequences for our own actions

I really can't find any way to link that pronouncement to my criticism about someone using Free Republic as an advertising tool.
I'll just chalk that up to my lack of subtlety.

Real conservatives don’t really need a nanny don’t ya know.

I'm pleased to hear it.

Does not matter if Fla. has a provision to recall a US Senator or US House member because the US Constitution does not have a provision for removal by recall. Waste of time.

I may agree with your sentiments because the people you named are ducks on a pond, but you’re a little new here to be calling for recalls of a pile of Republican senators. Actively participate and comment for a year or two, then you won’t look so much like a blog pimp or a rat operative when you post stuff like this.

The Arizona State Constitution specifically allows for the recall of elected representatives including those whose districts encompass the entire state.

A recall effort against McCain in 2001 was well under way and looked to be successful when 9/11 happened and it was suspended.

Perhaps a Constitutional battle over this will be set up. Whatever. If it weakens McCain, great. We’ll get rid of the arrogant SOB soon. He doesn’t represent Arizona and never has.

Corrections welcome, but I don’t believe that there are any constitutonal provisions for recalling federal senators. But citizens can always petition a bad-apple senator to resign before term is over.
