I grow weary of the fight on some days. People love to complain about losing their constitutionally protected rights. Then somehow they can jump on the bandwagon of someone who votes to take those rights away. There is only one man in Washington D.C. that I truly trust and that is Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky. Today I am going to make some people angry but I will have to live with it. I do not trust Marco Rubio.
I must go no further than S.1867 to tell you why I can’t trust Rubio or 93% of our current senators in Washington D.C. This is more widely know as the NDAA of 2012, a controversial measure that passed our Senate by the margin of 93 to 7. In the end, Republicans did nothing to hold the line against “indefinite detention of American Citizens.” Of the seven who voted against the bill, 3 were Democrats, 1 was an independent and 3 were Republicans.
Yes, my friends, Marco Rubio voted for S.1867 as did 92 of his Senate comrades. Is this really someone who we want to anoint as the next great hope for the White House?
The truth is that Republicans are not concerned with the best candidate. They want the most electable candidate. My opinion is that they are trying to steal a play from the Democrats playbook. A minority may give them a better chance to reach minority voters. Marco Rubio could win partly because of the color of his skin.
I see the color of his skin as yellow, just like the 92 other yellow traitors who voted to pass S.1867. I will not endorse anyone who is part of the problem.
The other reason to put Rubio on a pedestal is because he represents Florida and that is certainly part of the political game we play every four years. Rand Paul is not a recognized minority and he’s from Kentucky. The Republicans don’t see much to work with. So let’s just do the same thing we normally do. Let’s not pick the best candidate, let’s try to build the most electable candidate. I for one, am very sick of it.
Both major parties act in much the same way. They are not focused on the constitution. They are not focused on real issues. They insult the American public. They would rather pick a candidate that has the right look or the right political pedigree. They believe that you and I are too apathetic to care about issues and tend to cast our votes based solely on platonic issues.
Is Rubio electable? Sure, I suppose he is if we are willing to play the same game that we have played for decades. I see that the time for those games are over. If we even make it to 2016 without the breakout of a violent revolution I will be surprised. If we do make it that far I sure as hell will not be voting for a man who is part of the problem.
When 93% of our elected senators vote to further infringe on our constitutionally protected rights it is not time to play the political courtship game. It is time to call them out and expose them for who they are.
I am sick of the two-party dominated system that has done nothing but let us down time after time. I am ready for the people to shoulder the responsibility and stop jumping on party bandwagons.
We must get our heads out of the clouds. We, the people of America, are the true definition of insanity. We keep doing the same things over and over while expecting different results.
These people have taken an oath and they have failed us. What they deserve at this point is to be victims of their own laws. Let’s send them to Guantanamo Bay and give them some time to think about their treason.
If this is the best that the Republicans have to offer then it’s no wonder they have lost touch with people. It’s not about right and wrong anymore, it’s about throwing whatever prostitute you can in front of the American people and doing whatever you have to do to get them elected.
With all of this said, I do want to credit Senator Rand Paul, who was among the 7 to vote against the NDAA. He was also its most outspoken opponent. If we make it to 2016 then there is little doubt that I would give serious consideration to support this man in a run for the White House. But I’m not waiting until 2016 to find out.
We can not stand for 3 more years of our rights being taken apart, systematically, right before our eyes.
I will not stand for it. I will fight for my rights.
The time of the traitors is over. This is our time!
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
