THE “I SURRENDER” PLATFORM

(Jan. 15, 2013) — Newly elected Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Ok 2) was on KFAQ radio’s Pat Campbell Show on Tuesday Jan. 8 to “explain” his vote for John Boehner as Speaker of the House of Representatives. His explanation of why he voted for Boehner seems to be “business as usual” in Congress. I thought we sent him there to oppose the business as usual mindset. One explanation he gives is that he was told at the freshman orientation that he could only vote for someone who was nominated, and naturally Boehner was the only one nominated. His other position is that not voting for Boehner is the same as voting for Pelosi. That is the same lame crap we heard from the Republican establishment in the 2012 general election (not voting for Romney is voting for Obama). It didn’t take him long to cabbage onto the establishment lingo did it?
And take a listen to this link of the Traitor John Boehner’s speech at the freshman orientation. If you will read the text, notice the next to last paragraph and compare it to the audio. Pay particular attention to what Boehner says beginning at the 5:15 mark of the audio. The press release of the article added the word “just” to what Boehner actually said. That one word changes the entire statement and the tone of his remarks. This is merely cover for his tyrannical speech in which he told new members that if they are there to represent their constituents the door is in the back of the room. Is this what we expect our “representatives” in government to believe?
I guess the few who didn’t vote for Boehner didn’t get the same message as did Mullin and the others, or had the courage to stand for liberty rather than committee seats. Mullin also pleads that he promised not to vote for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker during the campaign. I didn’t attend every event held by Mullin but I was at a large number of them and I don’t remember anyone telling him not to vote for Pelosi, nor do I remember him pledging to not vote for her. It may have happened but I didn’t hear it and would have challenged him had I heard such tripe.
Does anyone expect anything to change with the same “leadership” we have had for the last two years? Am I the only one fed up with sending people to Washington and have them come back and tell me about their “limited options”? Isn’t this the very problem the conservative movement is fighting? I vote for those I think will expand those options and represent me not represent the party establishment and the status quo. Apparently I was wrong this time.
The only Oklahoma member of the House to actually stand for conservative values was newly elected Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Ok 1) out of the Tulsa/Washington County area. He voted against The Traitor John Boehner for Speaker of the House while Mullin stepped right in line with the tyrants and voted for Boehner in spite of many of us telling him to stand against Boehner. I can’t tell you how many times I heard people stand up in meetings during the Republican primary and again in the campaign saying that Boehner was not acceptable to Oklahomans, yet Mullin joined the other “conservatives” from Oklahoma to give us the same “I surrender” leadership we got out of the 2010 election. He stepped up to the plate of tyranny and voted to keep things the same as they have been.
A side question is WHY was no one else nominated? Oh, that’s right; any opposition is punished by the Traitor John Boehner Crime Syndicate. For those who see a wide difference in the two political parties, remember that no one opposed Nancy Pelosi for minority leader either. The 2010 farce was merely a show to give the so-called “Blue-Dog Democrats” cover at home. So both political parties essentially have leaders chosen by acclamation. Isn’t that just wonderful for those of us who see dictatorship being imposed on us and our elected Republican “conservative” representatives going right along with the party plan?
Congress is run like a dictatorship and we expect our lives to be different? If we can’t get the dictators out of those positions by voting in new representatives how are we to accomplish such a goal? What good does it do to vote in new members of Congress when they turn around and support the very “leadership” we sent them to get rid of? Who will lead the charge to stand against Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional Executive Orders? Congress can override his EO concerning their pay (aren’t they considerate of We the People?) but cannot override anything else he “DICTATES”? And anyone who opposes Boehner’s “I surrender” policies will be removed from committee positions as punishment, as Tim Huelskamp, Justin Amash, and some others recently found out. The message in those dismissals was a shot across the bow to anyone with a mind to oppose the dictatorship in Congress.
Hugo “Sieg Heil” Chavez accomplished this very same coup in Venezuela a few years ago. Obama is following the exact path Chavez used to gain total control of that nation. He rendered any opposition in their Congress irrelevant because their “leadership” didn’t have the courage to oppose him. The kicker is that Mullin, Cole, Lankford, Lucas, and others who follow the Obama lackeys aren’t the ones who will suffer under this totalitarian Hitler/Stalin regime. They will have their armed guards to protect them and their families. Like the hypocrite Sen. Diane Feinstein, they will still be allowed to concealed carry for their protection. They will have their place at the seat of power because they won’t oppose the Gestapo tactics of the Democrat Party, the Republican Party establishment, and the Obama Crime Family. They are “special”!!!
And like Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot, Chavez, and other tyrants Obama will bypass Congress and outlaw firearms without so much as a whimper from members of either political party. The 2nd amendment has nothing to do with hunting or target shooting. It was written specifically to protect We the People from a tyrannical government. Think about this: firearms in the hands of patriotic civilians are just as dangerous to the lackeys of dictators as they are to the dictators leading the regime, and they are very well aware of that fact.
Our liberty is gone and Mullin didn’t help by supporting Boehner. Surrender to gain a seat in the back of the tyranny bus is okay for those in power but it isn’t okay for We the People. Mullin voting against the Hurricane Sandy relief scam was good but Boehner will do more damage in the long run than this or any other vote can overcome. Mullin just put his stamp of approval on The Traitor John Boehner and his caving to the dictator Adolph, er, Barack Obama. He will get his cherished committee appointments but at what cost to those of us who must suffer under dictatorship? We the People of Oklahoma have not been served well with the first vote Mullin made and nothing he can do in the future will overcome the damage Boehner will do with his “I surrender” platform.
