For whom the poll tolls


Media is reporting that nationally Republicans are receiving a 28 percent favorable rating in the polls. Seems really bad, right? Every single news outlet is reporting reasonably minded Republicans are afraid to support Obamacare because of the possibility of being primaried in their home states. Turn on MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC and FOX, they are all reporting the same thing. Why are they afraid? Is it because their constituents are telling them what a good job they are doing? No, it's because the Tea Party and America is one and the same.

Reasonable Republicans are hearing from their constituents they better not pass Obamacare. Their lifetime seats are now being challenged by the American people. I am of the 72 percent that wants to sweep the house of RINO's and get patriotic, constitutional representatives like Ted Cruz back in office.

So the next time you hear a conservative say "yes, we'd like to have pre-existing illnesses covered" that for the record, we'd choose the Constitution over our own selfish interests everyday. Because like our founding fathers we too "pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor" in the preservation of freedom and our Constitutional Republic.
