Of course, but what I was asking was in regards to non-pols...other than the sick dems, I’ve seen nothing but glaring support.

Screw King, McConnell et al - the light has landed on their dark corners and I am grateful.

I believe that you are correct...some people (many actually) are just not informed of what is going on...I look at it as my mission to expose the truth to the uninformed!

Thank you for a different take on the fillibuster. Something to think about. We do KNOW though that some of our senior Senator’s and Congressmen are STABBING CRUZ by words and deeds!

Guy from RNC said they are working hard behind scene to put Obombashare bill down. Told him they needed to grow a pair if they wanted to get the job done! He laughed and asked if I wanted to pass that message. Replied “you betcha!”

Last time Rubio spoke, he was stressing how he, Cruz, etc., are the ones who are truly standing up against the political elite and for the regular guys. It would’ve been the perfect opportunity to tie it in to the filibuster in the ‘60s when the GOP was pushing the Civil Rights Act, and the democrats (Robt. Byrd) filibustered AGAINST civil rights.

The idiots assume, and are told, that it was the democrats who were in favor of civil rights when, in fact, they strongly opposed that. People need to hear the truth. Sadly, the people who need to hear the truth aren’t paying attention now; they’re focused on “Dancing With the Stars”, “Duck Dynasty”, Kardashians, etc. Brain dead.

Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and John Cornyn (R-TX) — the top two Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate — announced yesterday that they will support “cloture” on the government funding bill, giving Harry Reid and the Democrats a procedural green light to fund Obamacare with only 50 votes.

Largest number of posts is 65,534, brought to you by the Undead Thread.

One of the Hobbit Hole threads did it first, years before the Undead Thread was... born.

On topic remark: Ted Cruz is awesome. John Cornyn will pay a price in the primary next year, for not supporting him.

Any East Tennessee Freepers trying to call Corker in local offices in East Tennessee need to either call Nashville or DC. The Knoxville and Tri-Cities offices are on Full Voice Mail Mode.

Alexander and Corker's DC office lines are busy but I did finally get through on both. I hope their ears are burning.

I hope you right, and that they did some planning on this. It has looked that way at times. Rand Paul’s filibuster was reportedly almost a spur of the moment affair: wrong shoes, no device for bathroom breaks, support not really lined up. I hope they learned from that, because it was still effective, but could have been even better.

How sickening. McConnell has to be one of the most vile men to ever serve. Him and his many chins will be tossed out, I pray.

Regardless, the light has been light, the levy has broken and they have nowhere to hide.

All I know for a fact is that I will never ever comply with this illegal bill.

No news agency has mentioned that before he read “green eggs and ham” he read 6 verses out of the book of Proverbs...I cannot recall the last time a US Senator read out of the BIBLE on the Senate FLOOR! I’m voting for him for President even if I have to WRITE TED CRUZ in!

I don’t recommend checking out National Review Online, unless you want to be as angry as it made me. I’ll keep reading Mark Steyn and Victor Davis Hanson, and keep hoping they find a new home.

I watch Fox News regularly. Ted Cruz captured my attention and I was riveted to his filibuster since it started. There was no Fox News in my house since he began the filibuster. This is historic TV. Seen enough of Karl Rove. I'm sick of all the talking heads and the media. They can all go to hell. I don't care what they say any more. I will just carry on and fight for what I believe in. The internet and talk radio are fine substitutes for TV, Fox News included.

Paul is on board with us on the vote.

And yet this morning appearing on Beck Radio Show, he again spouts that they can not win.

Itsahoot knows what Paul is saying, do you? Or are you just full of wishful thinking?

He will vote with Cruz but has repeatedly said it will do no good, just said as much on Beck Radio Show, I would rather he just shut up.

If Harry Reid intends to obstruct the process

He has announced his plan as to how the process goes forward. With McConnell's help he will get 60 votes to invoke cloture. Then he will proceed to allow one and only one amendment to the HR bill. Then the Defund section will be stripped out. He has been clear.

The Stupid Party wants us to lie back and enjoy it (when rape is inevitable....)

Cruz has exposed the Stupid Party fully - over and over. Will he stop talking when Harry tells him to?

“Did McCain poke his ugly head out yet?”

Haven’t seen him yet. He and/or Graham are on the Sunday shows almost every week - though they haven’t been the last couple of weeks. I can’t say what I think of the both of them (wouldn’t be ladylike and I’d get banned from FR).I wish he would retire and I’d hope that one of the other Pubbies wins Linda’s seat next election.
