Last week’s passage of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) was another federal power grab, affront to our privacy and fundamental rights. According to an article in infowars “71% of the Tea Party” legislators vote for the bill and “44 of 66 of the Tea Party Caucus. “This compared to 88% if the GOP who voted overall and 23% of the Demo who voted.
The National Defense Authorization Act, which violates 14 provisions of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, was also support overwhelmingly by the GOP. NDAA was supported by a large majority of the Constitutional Caucus!
Romney, Gingrich and Santorum all indicated multiple times they would have voted for or signed into law the NDAA. This should have been an automatic disqualifier for any real constitutional conservative but if there was even a flinch it was very, very slight.
Fair Tax folks would not vote for any of them that didn’t proclaim allegiance for the Fair Tax. No pro-lifers would support any of them that did fail to support pro-life. But these and other single issue group could care less about the fact they support the gutting of the Bill of Rights. Are we a nation of idiots? There was not one Fair Tax, Pro-Life or Second Amendment group member at the Kansas hearing on the anti NDAA resolution.
The Kansas anti-NDAA resoltuion was killed by GOP not Demos.
And what about the GOP’s approval for debt ceiling raises and super committees? The bottom line is that having a “GOP controlled” House hasn’t meant squat for our Constitution, our Liberty or even less important, but at the top of the list for dumb- dumbs, finances.
I wear an awareness bracelet that says “2010 Resolution”. This was the Kansas and National GOP’s mantra to tea party members leading up to the 2010 election. Remember all that nonsense? Yes the good ole GOP said “We have learned our lesson. Just hang in there with us and everything will change in 2010”. I recall Senator Cook at the end of a Health Care bus tour of Kansas standing between Representatives Landwehr and Mast saying “You don’t want to “sweep them all out” we have some nuggets of gold in the House and Senate and they are on this stage.” Gold? Well fools gold perhaps.
Cook has been denying since June that the Governor had anything to do with bringing the Obama Care grant to Kansas. The evidence proves conclusively otherwise and the Governor has not even denied his involvement nor has his Budget Director.
Landwehr is involved up to her neck in bringing Obama Care to Kansas involving suggesting to the Insurance Commissioner, Sandy Praeger, that Praeger apply for an Obama Care grant that required Kansas to implement Obama Care. Landwehr also served on several committees working to bring Obama Care (now Brownback Care) to Kansas.
Mast has been a “party girl” from a long time back. She has not bothered to speak out about Brownback Care and tried to convenience me I should not speak out about it. She did not support the 2011 budget freeze proposal but rather supported Brownback’s $350+ million spending increase which unconstitutionally took sales tax money from the highway fund.
All three supported a fraud on the citizens of Kansas by making them think the Health Care Act / Resolution would protect Kansans from Obama Care when nothing is farther from the truth and they all knew it.
Now the GOP once again plays the siren’s song “Things will be different in 2012….suckers.”
Folks it’s time to get the manure shovel and clean out the barn…well the Capitol.
