"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

Will They Disrespect Your Wishes?

Well, here we stand at a crossroads once again. Congress has a choice to make. They do not have the necessary votes to pass a comprehensive health care overhaul bill. In that regard, you have all done a great job getting your views to be heard! But they have the ability to dismiss the will of the American people by engaging in a process called cloture. This allows them to pass legislation with only 51 votes! Cloture has historically been used to address small segments of budget legislation. It was NEVER intended to be used to twart the desires of the American people or to ram through comprehensive legislation on any issue. And yet, that's what these moron's are planning to do. Does that please you? Are you happy with the arrogance of your government? Do you care that they disdainfully disregard your wishes? What are you prepared to do about it? Have you already engaged the battle? If not, what's holding you back? I urge you to call your Senators today and tell them NO TO CLOTURE! Wake Up America!
