77% of Tea Party Fascists In Congress Vote for Patriot Act Extension

You were lied to America. I told you this before the election. That you were snookered, lied to, and bamboozled. That you would not get either real fiscal accountability or liberty and The Rule of Law out of The Tea Party. Many said I was full of crap. Really? I challenge any and all who said I was wrong to explain this: Cross-referencing the list at MSNBC and the outcome of the vote, the following is a list of Tea Party-backed candidates voting for the bill (Patriot Act reauthorization): Tim Griffin (AR-2), Paul Gosar (AZ-1), Steve Southerland (FL-2), Allen West (FL-22), Sandy Adams (FL-24), Bob Dold (IL-10), Adam Kinzinger (IL-11), Marlin Stutzman (IN-3), Todd Young (IN-9), Jeff Landry (LA-3), Dan Benishek (MI-1), Tim Walberg (MI-7), Michelle Bachmann (MN-6), Vicky Hartzler (MO-4), Renee Ellmers (NC-2), Frank Guinta (NH-1), Joe Heck (NV-3), Michael Grimm (NY-13), Steven Chabot (OH-1), Bill Johnson (OH-6), Steve Stivers (OH-15), Jim Renacci (OH-16), Tim Scott (SC-1), Jeff Duncan (SC-3), Trey Gowdy (SC-4), Mick Mulvaney (SC-5), Scott DesJarlais (TN-4), Bill Flores (TX-17), H. Morgan Griffith (VA-9), Sean Duffy (WI-7), Reid Ribble (WI-8), David McKinley (WV-1) That's thirty-one out of forty voting for the bill (77.5%), eight voting against, and one no-vote. Despite the eight nay votes, Tea Party-backed candidates overwhelmingly supported an extension of the PATRIOT Act. Note that the list include the "beloved" Alan West and Michelle Bachmanm.

You mean voting didn't work? Again? After 200+ years of voting failing to protect us people are still voting? I stopped voting in 1980 and dropped out of the Libertarian Party. I learn from experience. What do you call someone who does not? Crazy! Why is sovereignty for individuals so scary to most, but sovereignty for an elite few (government) unquestionable? Are people so indoctrinated that they have lost the ability to think or judge in matters of politics? How can anyone over the age of 30 still have faith in government? Does the fear of self reliance make people blind to the folly of trusting their lives to politicians? If so, we are doomed.
