As we speak, Senator Rand Paul and a handful of other American statesmen are into the tenth hour of filibustering the Obama nominee to head the CIA, John Brennan. Bless them for having the guts to stand up for Americans and the Constitution!
Interestingly, today is the anniversary of the day the Alamo was overrun by the Mexican forces of Santa Anna. To show support to Senator Paul, Texas Senator Ted Cruz read the letter written by Colonel Travis as the Mexican troops were strengthening:
The men who chose to remain at the Alamo were under no illusion they would ever walk away from that sacred mission. They faced certain deaths but chose to remain and fight. The corruptocrats in Washington today make a mockery of those brave patriots who died for something greater than themselves. Not surprisingly, when Senator Cruz read Col Travis’ letter, John McCain and ten other wussypants Republicans were having dinner with Obama. They may all go to Hell.
AWD criticized Senator Paul when he voted for confirmation of Chuck Hagel, the first openly retarded Secretary of Defense. Senator Paul is not in good graces with me for that but this filibuster is winning him major AWD points. Ted Cruz continues to astonish AWD with his intelligence, drive, and love of the Constitution.
Not surprisingly, Senators supported by the Tea Party movement like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Marco Rubio are involved with the filibuster. Perhaps these brave Senators would have chosen to remain at the Alamo while wussypants RINOs like McCain, Lindsey Graham and a whole hell of a lot of others tucked tail and ran.
The American spirit will never die as long as the love of liberty and justice burns in the heart of at least one patriot. Yet, we are millions!
Today, we remember the Alamo. Tomorrow’s cry should be “Remember the Constitution!”
