The House votes for the New Speaker
I am pretty much convinced that the United States Congress has been taken control of by RINOs. Republicans In Name Only, and not a damned one of them has the courage to stand against the system and the *clique* of *go along to get along* that has plagued the government of this nation for so many years.
I believe we have witnessed the seating of the most GUTLESS bunch of scoundrels and scalawags to ever be elected from the ranks of the GOP.
I have long had the greatest respect for Rep. Pete Sessions, MY Congressman, I thought he was aware that he had been sent to Washington to do *The Will of the People*, that being us, the constituents of Texas-32, but it is MY opinion that he, by his support of John Boehner to return as Speaker of the House, has not done so and has indeed slapped the people of Texas-32 in the face.
I know Pete Sessions, but of late I am thinking that he believes himself to be a lot smarter than those of us that sent him to Congress to do OUR will!
I also know that Pete Sessions is friends with John Boehner. It’s not MY place to tell anyone who they can be friends with but when that friendship affects the voting of MY Congressman then it’s time for me to start looking for a new person to support and to run against Sessions in the next election.
That’s the wonderful thing about a Congressman; they CAN be voted out after 2 years.
Louie Gohmert, a man that many members of the GOP support and is supported by nearly ALL Conservatives, had a few votes, a small handful. Gohmert is, in MY mind, not only qualified to be Speaker but should have been Speaker. Gohmert has something that John Boehner never has had; a set of BALLS!
I am seriously angry and disappointed. The will of the people has NOT been done; the Congress is voting THEIR will.
I have received many emails from people in TX-32 saying that they will no longer support Rep. Pete Sessions if he doesn’t vote to oust John Boehner. That ousting of Boehner, THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE, has NOT happened. Now we get to see how many in TX-32 have the guts to take a stand and elect a NEW Congressman in 2016.
Here’s a bit of news for those that don’t know or have been under a rock for the last few decades; We, The People don’t mean a damned thing anymore, all we are is a device to be used to attain a position in the House or Senate. Once said position has been secured we immediately become useless, well, until the next election that is.
Pete Sessions voted John Boehner. I understand why, they needed a majority to beat Pelosi and they look at Louie Gohmert like a *spoiler*, something akin to a Libertarian candidate like Ron Paul and his ability to split a vote, but that makes NO difference at this time, they are ALL gutless and We, The People have been HAD, screwed, taken, bent over or whatever else you care to call it.
This is a message sent to me via email by a friend and reader of the blog.
I am rapidly losing hope for this country. Last night I saw that Obama now has a 48% approval rating. To me that’s a no confidence vote for our populace. If that many people haven’t figured him out by now they never will.
We need an opposition to the Democrats and right now I see the GOP as the only entity that can stop them. If John and Mitch end up leading the House and Senate again I don’t see anything changing. Fire needs to be fought with fire not a weak garden hose and when will “our” side realize this? The one thing we don’t need is a namby-pamby, wishy-washy, pusillanimous leadership that will mouth some good words and then let Obama have his way. On top of this we have some RINOS now calling to raise the gas tax. The Dems had Harry blocking everything positive the House sent to the Senate. He fought us tooth and nail. He may be a horrible, disgusting nut but he was effective. We need strong leadership or else we’re screwed!
I couldn’t agree more!
The GOP may have majority control of BOTH Houses but we have the weakest bunch of clowns, buffoons and miscreants to ever infest those Hallowed Halls.
