"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

The 7 Must Go - It's That Simple

Well, you're all aware of the corruption and scandal coming out of ACORN in recent (and not so recent) days. They are under investigation in 14 states. There is some momentum building for a Justice Dept investigation. Government funding has been stopped - that by a vote of 83 - 7 with 9 Senators not present to vote. Who were the seven Senators still supporting ACORN? And why? Well, the answer to the first question is easy. Here's the list. Against Burris (D) from Illinois; Casey (D) from Pennsylvania; Durbin (D) from Illinois; Gillibrand (D) from New York; Leahy (D) from Vermont; Sanders (I) from Vermont; and Whitehouse (D) from Rhode Island Wow, all Democrats except the Independent, Sanders of Vermont. Oh, yeah, he's the 'self-described Democratic Socialist' - nice! So now, why did they vote for ACORN? That's a fantastic question. We'll find that out, I'm sure, if and when ACORN is investigated - including it's leadership, associations with organizations and people - both corporate and government. So are these 7 Senators on the take? And how much have they been given? What other favors have been traded? These seven are a big part of the problem in Washington, obviously. It's time for them to be voted out. Let's do it! Wake Up America!
