I would like to take time out of my day to thank all the capitulating/ DLC/ Bush Blue dogs who went against over 70-80 % of democratic voters that did not want telecommunitcation immunity and voted against cloture and voted for immunity.
My question is what did they receive? What did the telecommunication pac give to OUR representatives to make them go against their constiuents and vote like rethuglicans?
I have read that the Telepacs held a “fundraiser” (that’s what the kids are calling it these days) for Senator Rockefeller and raised $40,000.00 for him. Then lo and behold, he was for telecomm immunity. So what did all the others receive that made them think that the Telecomm corporations should not be held responsible for trampling over the a pesky thing like the constitution?
It’s come to the point that it is time to replace all of the Senators no matter how they vote. It is time to “throw out the baby with the bath water”. It’s time to stop listening to their excuses by saying “Well, I voted for such and such, but the other’s didn’t.” It is time for us to say that if you couldn’t convince them to do the right thing then you are not the leader you said you are and we will find someone else. Not one Senator or Representative should be running unapposed in any primary. Maybe then they will see that that the position they were elected to was a job and not something they were entitled to.
