There is plenty of internet coverage of Senator Max Baucus giving his girlfriend an unjustified $14,000 raise, so we won’t bore you here. The most incredible and yet entirely predictable thing is the nonchalance of the Democrats. If a Republican were to do this, it is nearly guaranteed there would be a lot more stink about it on MSM. What have we learned? Be careful which party you choose when you decide to have scandals. In general, the Democrats tend to get away with plenty more than the Republicans do.
As we all know, everyone has had their utter concentration on the costly, inefficient and perhaps deadly Health Care Bill (ObamaCare) as of late. The creators of this 2,000 page document will stop at nothing to cram this down the American throat, whether Americans want it or not. Even the Americans who think they want it haven’t read it, and if they did: they either have something themselves to gain from it, or they would vote against it. Even Jon Tester has created a series of emails, pretending that the proposed Health Care would actually help Montanans, using isolated personal stories that are unfortunately void of the hard facts and the larger picture.
But today – the House slid a fast one on us. They knew it too.
While Mr. Rehberg likely identifies himself as a Conservative, Montanans who consider themselves Liberty-oriented, be it anything from Libertarians to “Ron Paul Conservatives” as well as wide-ranging political affiliation descriptions; will be quite disappointed in this news:
He voted for extending the already-liberty-robbing Patriot Act today.
Here is the PDF link for the Bill HR 3326 to read for yourself – you need Acrobat Reader on your computer to read it.
Here is the Voting Results. It is so sad there are only 34 Patriots, and how embarrassing that 23 of those were Democrat! Shame on the Fake Republicans!
Liberty-minded Montana voters have had it up and over and beyond with Washington’s rhetoric of their “protection” of us, when what is practiced is the exact opposite of that. We are tired of having our freedoms stripped away and constant invasions of our privacy. We wonder – is Mr. Rehberg also in favor of the Real ID Act?
True Conservative voters need to take this into consideration at election time, as well as foster new candidate(s) who are about restoring our liberties, according to the US and the Montana Constitution – we cannot settle for less!
On a lighter note (or a darker note, depending on your sense of humor), yet another gem of a post entitled “Please Enslave Me!” from Anti-Tax Activist Larken Rose has been released – ENJOY!
