There Actually Is Leadership In Our Midst

Congressman Thomas Massie–who I can assure you is hated by both the Left and the Right–is making a stand for Liberty by requiring that the vote on the $2.2 trillion money grab coming out of DC be a recorded vote and not a voice vote. Good job Congressman Massie.

  1. WHEREAS I am generally in agreement about the serious threat posed, even potentially, and

    WHEREAS I am also generally in agreement with the precautions and restrictions in place, and

    ACKNOWLEDGING the difficulty and risk involved in super-annuated government figures travelling to gather in Congress,

    NONETHELESS, if you’re going to suddenly tack another $2 TRILLION GOD-DAMNED DOLLARS onto the bill that our descendants are somehow magically supposed to pay because we spent it all now,

    RESOLVED:

    Show up and vote in person.  Record your vote.  It is not as though this ridiculous amount of spending is risk-free in itself.  The rest of the year will see repercussions which will be falsely attributed to 1) the virus, or 2) the massive slowdown, which blame should instead be attributed to the massive jump in debt.

    I want names, not “unanimous consent”.  That’s like saying the damned thing went through on auto-pilot.

  2. There is a fine line between a noble and a futile gesture.  To stand in the breech and suffer no consequences such as death, dismemberment and loss of freedom removes a lot of the nobility.

    I frankly disagree. It is not futile to demand that if members of Congress wish to spent $2 trillion that we don’t have that they put their name on record. This was a great play because it put both Parties’ leaders on blast for being utterly useless in the face of a wonton money grab by groups with no relevance in this current “crisis.”

  4. Perhaps one money-saving measure might be to cut all Secret Service protection to all but the President. Not a lot of money but at least showing the flag where it ought to be.
