Massie literally should have contacted PDJT first and described his concerns and asked his advice...much younger to much older and teamwork could have ensued...now Pubbies look weak and divided...of course, small chance it was an act?
Voters must be bought, at about $25,000 a vote.
USA, #1 in voter venality.
I enjoy being lectured to by Lurch every so often. Reminds me why I’m a right-winger.
It would be like asking pigs individually if they want to run to a feed trough.
Demanding a recorded vote and debate at that point is just theater that accomplishes nothing other than delay and inconvenience.
The only patriot in Congress! Very disturbing how Kerry and Trump reacted almost exactly the same. This whole intentional destruction of the economy and this suicide pact bill ends voting for Trump by me. I dont vote for socialism.
Nope. There is a time to put ideological dogmas and political ego on hold. This was it.
His pointlessly tilting at a windmill he was never going to knock over probably just cost him his seat.
We need him fighting there when he can win, not making futile pointless political gestures.
Great post, great thread. NO FINGERPRINTS on this MURDER WEAPON. CRIMINALS remain FREE. STAY in your LOCKDOWN cell.
If Maddie was just being a Patriot, more would have went along with him. He was the only one and was just showboating.
L4 labs remain open. Softkill continues...
They don’t have to put their names to a DECLARATION of WAR (hardkill). Why should softkill legislation be any different?
If ever there was another List of Grievances drawn up, this piece of crap and the poopsters who passed it should be noted.
the Washington, D.C. based Kennedy Center was given a special $25 million bailout
I thought Trump’s defense of this made sense and opened my eyes to at least considering opposing views.
“Rep. Thomas Massie was a profile in courage for standing up and demanding a roll call vote.”
Recorded vote is required for history.
Now, they can all deny responsibility.
The legislative branch of government is broken.
The Senate no longer represents the states. It has become an elite country club for pompous politicians.
The House is full of professional politicians who pander to interest groups and big donors, not the voter.
The people vote to reelect incumbents. Therefore most Senators and Representatives have life tenure if they want it.
The political parties control the pipeline of candidates for Congress. Therefore it is virtually impossible for the people to throw the bums out in mass and replace with citizen legislators.
The political parties control the power structure within Congress - committee assignments, committee chairs, leadership positions.
The “ethics” committees are a joke. Congress does not throw out the bad apples within its ranks.
Almost all Congressmen and Senators are attorneys. Attorneys add no value to society, they are consumers not producers. Attorneys have no commitment to equal justice under law. In today’s world attorneys are hired guns committed to influencing outcomes and moving money from one pocket to another.
Socialism is Legal Plunder - The Law; Frederic Bastiat 1801-1850.
But, unfortunately, law by no means confines itself to its proper functions. And when it has exceeded its proper functions, it has not done so merely in some inconsequential and debatable matters. The law has gone further than this; it has acted in direct opposition to its own purpose. The law has been used to destroy its own objective: It has been applied to annihilating the justice that it was supposed to maintain; to limiting and destroying rights which its real purpose was to respect. The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish, without risk, to exploit the person, liberty, and property of others. It has converted plunder into a right, in order to protect plunder. And it has converted lawful defense into a crime, in order to punish lawful defense.
U.S.S.A. United Socialist State of America LOCKDOWN their slaves, hold the republic HOSTAGE.
We are watching the Constitution being shredded before our eyes with hardly a whimper from those who swore to protect and defend it.
