More often than not these two words would NEVER be used together, or in the same sentence for that matter, when discussing elected officials of the federal U.S. government. Very few individuals involved with big government are worthy of even being identified as potential candidates for the title of patriotic politicians. Make no mistake, I use the term patriotic politicians lightly, and loosely, since there isn’t a single one of them capable of complete honesty or transparency. In fact the overall majority of them are little more than soul selling spawns from the depths of Hades.
We have some up and coming younger senators who publicly exhibit the characteristics that cause me to consider them as possible patriotic politicians. Two of these junior statesmen have the moxie, the mojo and the will and determination to buck the traditional system. This fact alone makes them worthy of being considered patriotic politicians. The two senators I speak of are Rand Paul from Kansas and Ted Cruz from Texas. Both of these individuals happen to be Republican, which provides a glimmer of hope for the 2016 election, should they happen to join forces and run on the same ticket. Right now they are the two best choices we have that are representative of what patriotic politicians should embody.
““When the Senate rushed through a last-minute extension of the FISA Amendments Act late last year, I insisted on a vote on my amendment (SA 3436) to require stronger protections on business records and prohibiting the kind of data-mining this case has revealed,” Paul continued. “Just last month, I introduced S.1037, the Fourth Amendment Preservation and Protection Act, which would provide exactly the kind of protections that, if enacted, could have prevented these abuses and stopped these increasingly frequent violations of every American’s constitutional rights.”
Mr. Paul has a plan, one that aims to provide additional protections against corrupt government practices, instead of attempting to circumvent our rights to meet their own misguided desires. It’s actually no big surprise this amendment wasn’t voted on or passed, hell it would establish another barrier for the federal government to leap frog in order to continue acting out of control. They can’t have patriotic politicians in the mix, it goes against the grain.
““The bill restores our Constitutional rights and declares that the Fourth Amendment shall not be construed to allow any agency of the United States government to search the phone records of Americans without a warrant based on probable cause,” Sen. Paul concluded.
Last month, Paul’s bill was to “protect” the 4th Amendment. Today, the legislation is to “restore” it. I don’t think that’s the change most Americans signed up for with Obama.”
200 years ago our forefathers foresaw this type of event taking place. They acted accordingly, penning an amendment to protect future generations from the tyranny they had fled.
“Speaking on the Glenn Beck Show Thursday night, Texas Senator Ted Cruz unfurled a list of violations that he says shows “a pattern of this administration not respecting the Bill of Rights and not respecting the Constitution.””
I know there are some that will view this statement as nothing more than bipartisan bickering between political parties, it isn’t. Ted Cruz is just another of the patriotic politicians who understands the excessive abuse displayed by those in power.
““Every American,” Cruz said, “conservative or liberal, should be concerned when the federal government arrogates to itself so much power that it admits no limits under the Bill of Rights or the Constitution.””
I’d say Mr. Cruz placed the head of the hammer in direct contact with the top of the nail and drove the spike home for all to be heard. These are the types of patriotic politicians we need to hold higher offices once America has been resurrected from the ashes of the Obama administration!
