Posted on 06/20/2013 4:33:35 PM PDT by RobertClark
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched a national petition on Thursday to stop the Senate Gang of Eight's amnesty bill and send Washington a "strong signal" of the grassroots opposition to the bill.
Cruz urged supporters to share the petition with friends and to "act now--without delay--to help us defeat amnesty and stand for legal immigration!"

I signed his petition.
He’s right, we can make a difference.
Don’t stop calling/emailing/or going to their offices.
A national petition *as well as* flooding the phone lines of every House member,Republican *and* Rat.
Wire congress. Wire congress. Wire congress.
You can sign the petition without donating.
Yep getting an early jump on the 2018 Senatorial primary season it seems. Or maybe he’s squirreling some cash back for a Presidential run.
I forwarded the following email to my useless senator (the OTHER one from Texas!):
Today, on the floor of the U.S. Senate, you argued in favor of passing the new immigration bill on “humanitarian” grounds because of the people who died trying to illegally enter this country.
Senator, let me ask you a question: Suppose a thief wants to break into your house and steal goods that you and your wife have worked to purchase. And, in the process of breaking into the second story of your house, the thief falls and breaks his leg? Are you obligated to help that thief complete his task by taking the possessions he was after, putting them in a pillowcase and helping him back to his car?
That, Senator, in esence is what this immigration bill does and you should be aware of the fact that most Texans and most Americans oppose its passage. I strongly encourage you to re-consider your position and oppose the immigration bill.
Thank you for your consideration.
that comment seems more trollish than necessary, IMHO!
Correct, fundraising ploy. The “petition” says nothing ASAICT. I’ve just about had it with the entire lot of ‘em.
Went to the Reagan Library not long ago. Walked out saying to myself, “We’re surrounded by political dwarves.” And they aren’t humorous at all.
... GOOD COMMENTARY...THANK YOU.
Send a copy to the Governor of Arizona and the puppy occupying the governor....
Yes trolls are out.
Cruz scare them to death.
He may stop the Hell on earth Dem eternal majorityv
Thanks for posting
I called every day.
Senate lines are busy ,
So I leave messages if its not full .
I like Cruz more by the day.
McCain, Schumer and Graham have been trying to get this passed for a decade. They are too close. They think they can smell success. They are not going to pay any attention to anything from the grassroots.
So I leave messages if its not full .”
There are ten Senator’s offices I have called every day this week plus McConnell. Only office I have been able to get thru every day is Ted Cruz’s. Reached Cornyn only once. All the others either did not answer, got the “please call back during regular business hours recording - even though I called every day from 9 to 10 a.m. - or their mail boxes were full. Also tried sending a fax to five of the people on the undecided list which was posted on another FR link - never did get their fax to answer. They DO NOT want to hear from us.

I’ve been here lurking since 1998, and registered since 2000... I’m no troll and there’s no petition to sign. It’s a collection of my e-mail address. Where’s the text, the wording, the petition?
They are hearing from you .
Call the local offices only Rubio ‘s office trolls re not answering
