Oh, I know! I call his office all the time to thank him for all he’s doing and say “God bless you.” I just love him. Can’t say the same for Cornyn.
Other than a lack of formatting, what was that?
Jim, what is the largest number of Freeper posts on one single thread/article? 911?
In 24 hours Cruz has mobilized more pressure on DC than all of their whining and pontificating ever has.
Totally agree...this is one of the greater moments ever witnessed.
What a glorious thing to wake up to see MY Senator and TRUE patriots still standing strong on the Senate floor!
Prayers up for these courageous REAL representatives of We the People!
That’s my senator! Go Cruz!
That sounds good. I’m envious.
Ted Cruz: A true gift from God!
I love this guy!
I am a direct descendent of Abraham Clark. His great granddaughter Harriet Clark was my dad’s grandmother. I’m five generations down, but proud to be related to HISTORY.
THOSE SIGNERS of the Declaration were hard working , honest and loved GOD and COUNTRY!
Thank you, it’s unnecessary to hear from them at this time.
This IS historic, on more levels than we can even know at this time. The history lessons alone was worth every moment!
Mike Lee’s epic smack down of the SCOTUS should be heard by everyone!
Where or where is McConnell? Did McCain poke his ugly head out yet?
I am awed by the scope of the punishment the signers of the declaration took for signing it...
Amen, Johnny! I think Ted has been the kibosh on these *zipperheads*.
It’s really amazing how people take their freedom for granted...I believe the Founders believed that this day would come at some point...I hope and pray that people wake up!
Thank you Senator Mike Lee
Cspan said it’s not a filibuster because Cruz has to stop talking for the vote. What if he doesn’t?
It’s 9:25 AM CST and Ted Cruz is still going.
I fell asleep close to three to wake up to Rand Paul. Inhofe has been on, as well as David Vitter this morning.
It is shameful that so few senators have participated in this filibuster.
Libs in twitter all sputtering because there is NO comparison in the Orating skills between their Messiah and Ted Cruz. I think in 19 hours Ted Cruz has uttered less “umms” than “the One” does in one speech. So the poor libs are having to result in name calling. If they actual listen, they might get the education in civics that they weren’t allowed to hear in their Public Education.
Hard boiled eggs with sour cream and some fresh fruit here. Think some stomache may be growling. Wish we could send Cruz a pizza!
I tried, too and couldn’t get through. I did contact some of the Senators’ offices and said thank you for standing with Senator Cruz (I left a vmail for him (press 1) thanking him). I called my 2 Senators offices and told them I wanted them to vote no on cloture or I would not support them the next time (not exactly a fib - I’ve never supported them before - I have Maria Can’t Do Well and Patty “Osama Mama” Murray - yuk! I do have to say the people that answered the phone were fairly nice and said they’d pass it along.
Cornyn’s mailbox was full as was McConnell’s. All the lines I called were DC offices.
This is the big leagues....all is orchestrated in these "filibusters". Certain respected senators who are with Cruz are scheduled to show up at certain times. Unseen to us, there are always a couple senators and house members at their desks through the hours to give support or to make mini-speeches when needed, for instance, when he has to use the chamber pot in the chamber or freshen up.
There's always a doctor in the building, and probably some kind of nutritionist to make sure the good senator is getting the proper quick nibbles behind the scenes and is getting the right type and amount of liquids.
There are reasons for not having a large claque of Cruz supporters in the chamber, so don't sweat it. His staff and advisors know what they're doing....and they're doing a great job.
So far, during Cruz's speechifying, the media has not found any events in the chamber to criticize or to dramatize....and this is killing them. The situation remains cool, calm and collected, as it should be. Mechanics-wise, the "filibuster" is almost letter-perfect. Speaker-wise, it's a ten.
Good morning! Took my sickly self to bed about 3 a.m. Got up and staggered to the T.V., turned it on and there is our hero. Tie loosened; but still as sharp and articulate as when he started. Amazing amazing man!
They knew their life was on the line.
To answer Cruz’s question....I say those Republicans on the wrong side of this one need to be hung....out to dry when it comes to primaries.
Rubio now up (hopes to avoid the hanging part...lol)
cornyn should have been voted out last time. He’s not serving for the people anymore. Just a good ol boy hanging out for a free ride on tax payers money.

Good morning America.
My goodness, Cruz is still standing.
This man is incredible..... he needs to become our next ‘real’ president.
From one Texan to Another thank you...
whoa.....the red crushed peppers are a bad thing in the mornin
Barry pales in comparison. It must be depressing as a lib to finally realize that your Messiah, is just a man, and not leader material.
I tried over and over ... FINALLY answered... by then I was livid.
I appreciate that insight. It does temper my frustration, a bit :)
He has been flawless, and still so strong 20 hours later, what a sight to witness. Is America lucky to have this man in our corner or what?!
Wow. What a heritage. Amazing!
It’s up to us-the informed- to tell the uninformed, what’s really going on with this bill/government.
Two of my fifth great grandfathers signed the Bradford Accord which preceded the Declaration (Actually have a picture of their grandson. My grandmothers grandfather. )
Poor dirt farmers who stood up to the king’s men!
Rubio reading letters from constituent on losing their healthcare. Trader’s Joe. Now a community college employee.
