In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

      1. Can he get a majority of representatives from both sides of the aisle on this issue? The NRA has influence in both parties.

        1. I believe Boehner can get a majority of the House to pass these liberty-robbing bills if he doesn’t follow the Hasert rule and doesn’t follow regular order. He promised the Republican caucus that he would follow regular order as a condition for his reelection as speaker. He hasn’t had a very good track record of living up to his promises; time will tell if he honors this one.

          1. Boehner is up for re-election again in 2014.
            He comes from Ohio, a district in the Cincinnati area.
            If he blows this, he is toast.
            It will not pass the House.

  1. April 11, 2013 – a day that has been burnished in my memory banks as the day 15 Republicans put their personal interests above our Bill of Rights.The cloture vote on the heart of the legislation, the unwritten (at the time) and unread Orwellian titled bill “Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act”, assures anti-gun legislation will be passed in the Senate. Never forget the names of these traitors to the Constitution of the United States.

    Alexander & Corker (Tennessee)
    Ayotte (New Hampshire)
    Burr (North Carolina)
    Chambliss & Isakson (Georgia)
    Coburn (Oklahoma)
    Collins (Maine)
    Flake & McCain (Arizona)
    Graham (South Carolina)
    Hoeven (North Dakota)
    Kirk (llinois)
    Toomey (Pennsylvania)
    Wicker (Mississipi).

    1. Flake tried to explain his vote for cloture on his Facebook page but with over 1500 comments now, it looks like people aren’t buying it. He seems incredibly naive to trust that Harry Reid committed to open amendments to the bill.

  2. On December 25 Toomey should go to Washington’s Crossing and stand in the cold for a long time and contemplate what he has done to the memory of the men who crossed the Delaware, fought for independence, gave us a constitution and a bill of rights. Liberty is lost inch by inch and Toomey just took a big leap. I doubt that it will haunt him but I hope this decision denies.

    And as for Mark Kirk who was given a second chance at life and pissed away his vote after partying with his buddy Manchin on his yacht and bragging about it, a special place in the dung heap of worthless pols is waiting and well deserved.

    1. Well said, gracepmc. I’m most disappointed in Flake and Toomey. They were endorsed by DeMint’s Senate Conservative Fund which I contribute to. These two betrayed our trust when they abandoned their conservative principles.

      1. Unfortunately I think we will see even more Republicans support this in the Senate before all is said and done. And I no longer have all that much confidence in the House.
