"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

No Honorable Democrats Left in the Senate -- all FOR SALE

Senator McCain is correct this morning in that Republicans are out of options to stop this Senate healthcare bill that the American people don't want. The head of the Senate, Harry Reid, has gone against the rules which state that a sitting Senator can ask for a bill to be read in its entirety and no one can stop the reading. The Senator Coburn request to have the Sanders' amendment read, was stopped at the request of Sanders which should have been denied but Reid controls everything and thus feels free to break the rules.

The members of the Senate have not seen the bill in its entirety yet are voting on the bill at 1 AM est, Monday morning. In other words, they will not have read the bill they will be casting votes but are willing to take the word of Reid to vote YES.

When someone like Nelson was stalling on his vote, Reid bought him off with benefits for NE. We are sure this is not what was meant to happen by our Founding Fathers. They would be appalled to see the United States Senate in action this year where bills are brought to the floor and voted and Senators voting who don't know what the bills say as there is not enough time for ANYONE to read them.

The so-called pro-life Nelson sold out for money for Nebraska that other states will not get setting up a court fight in the end because we have a 'pesky' part of the Constitution in the 14th amendment, Equal Protection Clause, which requires states to provide equal protection under the law to all people within their jurisdictions. With the Reid buyout of Nelson, he is granting citizens of Nebraska benefits the rest of us in other States do not get.

What is so mind boggling about this healthcare bill that no one has had the time to read it but what has come out has made Dr. Howard Dean, fromer DNC Chair, oppose the bill along with a lot of unions and all Republican groups not to mention the majority of American voters. AARP sold out its senior citizen members as A. Barry Rand, Chief Executive Officer of AARP announced AARP support for the Obama Healthcare bills going through Congress. One small problem for AARP as well -- as a non-profit they are not supposed to endorse legislation, but they know they are protected by Obama and AG Holder so why would they let that stand in the way.

For years we have heard the statement 'elections have consequences' and have to admit that it may be truer today then ever. The American people were duped and guilted into voting for Obama and his Hope and Change. What Obama said on the campaign trail and what he says and does today are vastly different and has both sides of the political sprectum disenchanted with Obama, his agenda, and his tactics. The same can be said for Democrat members of Congress who pretended to be much more conservative then what they have turned out to be.

In Minnesota Franken STOLE the election with the help of ACORN voter fraud and finding votes after the election which gave the Democrats the 60th vote needed to ram any legislation through. Now we know why they were so intent on making sure Franken got that seat.

Today's Democrats will lie, cheat, and steal to win elections as we have plenty of evidence to back up that claim starting right in Oklahoma in an OK Senate seat. ACORN is a Democrat funded organization for voter fraud among other things -- facts exist all over about this corrupt organization and voter fraud. ACORN was also funded by the Obama campaign to the tune of almost $1M to help with his campaign. Even Democrats admit ACORN takes voter fraud to a new low level as it is more then the dead voting now which was okay with some Democrats and to be expected. When you hear about one man, one vote that was never meant to mean one man, one dead vote.

The American election process is broken and needs a through housecleaning starting with outlawing motor voter that does not require proof of citizenship to register. Everyone voting needs to provide picture proof of identification which will give their legal address. Every state has a means to get a picture ID for free. Laws need to be passed in every state to provide proof of citizenship to register and proof with a picture to vote. No longer should the American people go to the polls wondering how many dead and made up voters are also voting in their precincts. Absentee voting laws need to be strengthened as well so Mickey Mouse (who we love) cannot vote in the next election.

Sadly we remember the days when Democrat Senators like David Boren and Sam Nunn who were never FOR SALE. They had honesty and integrity which is lacking in today's Senate Dems who are FOR SALE for the right price no matter if it stomps on their core beliefs which doesn't say a lot of good about today's Senate Democrats. David Boren stood on principle when he helped get Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court. There will never be a better head of Armed Services then Sam Nunn. In those days, the two parties used to fight like cats and dogs on the floor of the Senate and then go have dinner together. They were working for their constiuents and the American people.

President Reagan needed the support of people like Boren and Nunn, and they worked well together for America. Clinton destroyed those days when he came into office and started threatening to put bases on the BRAC if certain Senators didn't go along for starters. Obama has followed in his footsteps with Offutt AFB, NE, which we believe did happen not matter what is being said as it was taken out of the playbook of Bill Clinton.

In the end the Democrat Senators will pay for ignoring their own oath of office as this bill has portions which are unconstitutional. We will end this article today with the Senate Oath of Office and its background. Ask yourself if the way the Democrats have conducted business on this Reid Healthcare Bill for Obama is what was meant when the founding fathers established the Senate in the Constitution.

The Constitution contains an oath of office only for the president. For other government officials, including members of Congress, the document specifies only that they "shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation to support the Constitution." The First Congress, in 1789, reworked this requirement into a simple fourteen-word oath: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States."

In 1884, two decades after the Civil War ended when additional Test Oath section words had been added for the Civil War, Congress quietly repealed the Test Oath section, leaving intact what is today's current affirmation of constitutional allegiance:


I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God
