For TEXAS Bloggers ONLY!

For TEXAS Bloggers ONLY!

The information in this post is pretty well Texas specific but you folks in other states may want to make a move in this same direction! Hammer your Senators if they voted FOR this debacle. Pull your support and let them KNOW you have pulled it.  

John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison, our U.S. Senators from Texas both voted FOR the bailout last night.

Today I dropped my support of Sen Cornyn and his re-election to the post of Senator, and I sent the Cornyn campaign and Sen Cornyn himself an email letting them know, it can be read in the thread linked here: Texas House members see opposition to bailout bill weakening

In a very short time I was contacted by Vincent Harris, wanting my phone number, their campaign manager wanted to talk to me, and I told him NO, I could not, and would not support ANY candidate that voted to bailout $700B, a figure that is still low, actual figures are reported closer to $820B, and that I was pulling their logo from TexasFred’s, The American Conservative and The Texas Connection, and I did.

Jimmy Kerr of But That’s Just My Opinion posted a message in my comments saying he had done the same thing. Jimmy and I are trying to contact and encourage as many Texas bloggers as possible to contact Vincent and let him know that YOU are doing the same thing as well, lets send Cornyn a HUGE, Texas sized message!

Please, if you believe that this is a very important issue, PLEASE contact Vincent and tell him that you’re dropping the logo too, and ask to be removed from their blog roll, no LINK is that important, request that your blog be taken OFF of their roll…

Contact Vincent here:
vincent@johncornyn.com

I think our elected officials have forgotten how bloggers rose to the challenge on the ILLEGAL Immigration issue, we can, and MUST do it again, and there is NO time to waste. The House votes tomorrow, FLOOD your Congresscritters with email, make them painfully aware that IF they vote this BS through, they have just signed their own termination notice.

Layoff’s are in order, permanent ones, it’s time that these pandering politicos realized just WHO they work for…

    Vincent,

    I have agreed and supported Senator Cornyn, even applauded some of his stances. But in one fell step he had blown away most of the trust I had for the man.

    The only way he could redeem himself for this one is to place himself on the sword and lobby the house Republicans to vote “NO”

    best regards,

    I posted something akin to this on my blog and I called for all US voters to throw the bums out if they vote for the bailout.

    If we don’t hold their feet to the fire this close to election we don’t stand a chance after the election.

    This is an exact copy of my email to Vincent Harris with the Cornyn campaign:

    You may want to read BOTH of these posts, and the comments.

    And you may want to take notice of the Google placement I get on my articles as well:

    The 3rd and 4th paragraphs are mine…

    Vincent, Sen Cornyn has done a tremendous amount of damage to his campaign, I am still beyond a lot of *talk* right now, the will of the people was NOT done, and for that, there will be many Senators pay with their jobs, and the same for House members if they are as insensitive to the voice of We, The People!

    It’s time that our elected officials know exactly WHO they work for, and that is US, the U.S. Citizen, it is NOT the other way around! And Sen Cornyn needs to be very aware, the boss is NOT happy!
