If instead of the RNC calling, mailing, etc for money all the time, what if there were a TPNC? Would you give to the Tea Party National Committee>

I damn sure don’t give to the RNC but would probably do so for an organized TP.

The politicians who spread the propaganda that it is okay to make certain Americans pay even more than the share because they are successful to keep up the crooked politicians; government do not have my respect. These people in power made this mess throughout the years. Obama will destroy the economy and the cult followers (which they seem that way), to him will never see it coming because they are consumed with hate, an agenda and some only of a jealousy of things that others do have. I won’t be defending those who went along. Republicans are suppose to be the party of less taxes, less government control and more freedom back to the citizen. I will be happy when they finally change and taken over by conservatives or a new conservative party begins because my belief it is the only way to save America from the socialists. They don’t like God. They don’t like guns. They don’t seem to like most Americans.

The Whigs have guaranteed that Pelousi will be the next Speaker. With all the Whig defections, Cry-baby Boehner will be as useful as teets on a boar hog. Glad to see that most of the Confederacy voted NO.

The real question is why didn’t those who will be crowing they voted against plead with Boner not to bring this up for a vote, offer amendments, stand up and speak against??? Better yet, watch a replay of the vote. It was obvious from the start it would only take 40 votes from republicans for this to pass, so why did so many “no” votes hang back until passage was assured? Why did some early “yeas” change to “no”? You cannot just look at the final votes! You must also look at their individual actions.

Sent the following to my congresscritter, Steven Palazzo, who happened to vote against the deal:

Message Subject: Fiscal Cliff - Leaving Republican Party Message Text: Sir, I was heartened to see that you voted against the travesty of the fiscal cliff cave that the Republican Party slapped Conservatives in the face with. I have voted for you and respect you i many ways. But, the Republican Party in general, Roger Wicker, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and other "leaders" have made me decide I can no longer be affiliated with a Party that does not represent me. Many of us Conservatives, who love the Constitution and the Freedoms that made this the Greatest Nation on God's Green Earth. The problem is that even supposed Republicans no longer seem to have any sense whatever of what it will take to return us from a socialist-tending prison and return us to a Free Nation. I and many other hoped beyond hope that the Congress would insist on spending cuts and some compromises by the communist-leaning Democrats, but that never panned out and we were slapped in the face by a gutless and back-stabbing Republican Party one time too many. I wish you well and may even vote for you again, but not as a republican voter - the Republican Party does not deserve my allegiance and will not get it until/if it actually starts acting like it means what it says. As long as we keep letting wimpy/weepy "cavers-at-heart", wheeler-dealers assume positions of "leadership", the Republican Party will just continue the decline as it abets those who want to enslave us all. I am urging many I know to contact their "representatives" with their messages because it appears that the Republican Party thinks its constituents are as mindless as the Left's constituents in support of their Party. We have brains and we find ourselves with no Party. Good day and God Bless for your vote - fight to drag the Republican Party out of the morrass it has willingly mired itself in and I will admire and back you in any way possible. I pray that there are still some Freedom-loving Patriots left in the Party, but I despair that they are too few and not motivated enough to stand before the Leftist Machine that is intent on destroying us.

I sent a more pointed one to Senator Roger Wicker who voted for the mess.

I urge all who are like-minded to contact their folks and let them know we have finally run out of patience and that they have to either earn our support or pound sand.

Thanks for the post; ping. The plunder of the nation continues unchecked. The forced economic enslavement of "Americans" living and not yet born continues without abatement. Legislative totalitarians living large roam the republic from sea to shining sea. We know the looters names but the "WANTED" posters with bounties are not being printed.

Live in Alabama. Of my 7 reps. the lone Dem voted yes. The one that hurts though is my Senator Jeff Sessions voted yes in the house. I still don’t understand. I have only disagreed with him once on a vote but this one is heartbreaking. :( This has not started out to be a better year.

On the plus side, this means that only 85 house Republicans support Boehner. Boehner went into this vote knowing that it would win with mostly Democrat support.

Since it will be all of congress that votes for the next Speaker of the House, unless these Democrats vote to make Boehner Speaker again, I suspect he is out of there.

If he does become Speaker because Democrats voted for him, he will bring ruination on the Republican caucus, and likely his own self.

Of those 180 plus Repubs who voted no, they should form 30 or 40 and proclaim a new party. They would be the deciding swing voting block in the house. They’d be able to block this upcoming debt ceiling hike.
