USA Next - Building a Legacy of HypocrysyFreedom for America's Families

I knew it wouldn't be long before a gem would wind up in my email box. Today:
Lady Margaret Thatcher once said:

“To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects.”

It’s about time twelve members of the United States Senate were reminded of that quote.

I’m sorry to inform you today that the following twelve members of the United Senate are working behind the scenes as I type this email to literally forge a compromise of the Constitution:

Senator John McCain (AZ)
Senator Chuck Hagel (NE)
Senator Ben Nelson (NE)
Senator Bill Nelson (FL)
Senator Arlen Specter (PA)
Senator Susan Collins (ME)
Senator Olympia Snowe (ME)
Senator George Voinovich (OH)
Senator Mike DeWine (OH)
Senator Gordon Smith (OR)
Senator John Warner (VA)
Senator Lindsey Graham (SC)
These men and women all took an oath to “uphold the Constitution of the United States.” Now they are violating that oath as they work to compromise the Constitution of the United States by supporting the unconstitutional “right” Senators Reid and Clinton claim they have to filibuster President Bush’s judicial nominees.

Let’s put this in context by paraphrasing Lady Thatcher’s quote:

“Senators McCain, Hagel, Nelson, Nelson, Specter, Collins, Snowe, Voinovich, Graham, Smith, Warner, and DeWine are abandoning all beliefs, principles, values, and policies in favor of something in which no one believes.”

There’s no other way to look at it. And it’s simply unacceptable.

It’s time to send this “Coalition of Compromise” a clear message. Will you join me and thousands of other Americans and tell these twelve compromisers to stop playing games with the Constitution?

I must have missed the memo from the right that said "It is now OK to use foreigners as authorities on the US Constitution."
