“A troubled and afflicted mankind looks to us, pleading for us to keep our rendezvous with destiny; that we will uphold the principles of self-reliance, self-discipline, morality, and, above all, responsible liberty for every individual that we will become that shining city on a hill.” — Ronald Wilson Reagan

More Than 20 Republican Senators Vote For Cloture On Comprehensive Immigration Reform (UPDATED: Roll Call added)

The fact that these RINOs (yes, I used that term, even for Tea Party favorite Rand Paul) are voting for a bill that Politico calls a “bonanza for Democrats” shows just how far the GOP has come from its conservative roots.

Remember these names:

McConnell and Sens. John Cornyn (Texas), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Rob Portman (Ohio), John Thune (S.D.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Jeff Chiesa (N.J.), Roger Wicker (Miss.), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Pat Toomey (Pa.), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), John Hoeven (N.D.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Susan Collins (Maine), Jerry Moran (Kan.), Roy Blunt (Mo.), Dan Coats (Ind.), Dean Heller (Nev.) and Saxby Chambliss (Ga.) were among the Republicans who voted to advance the bill.

(The wording seems to indicate this may be a partial list, I am still looking for the official roll call, and will update this post with it when I find it.)

Yes, Paul fanboys and fangirls, your man Rand joined such leftist RINOs as Susan Collins in voting for this bill that will destroy the GOP in a generation or two.

They’re voting for their own destruction, so it’s only a matter of time before our choice in parties becomes left and further-left.

Update: Wouldn’t ya know it, just after I click Publish, they post the roll call. Below is the list of all the aye votes. Any and all R’s on that list should not receive a penny from conservatives.

    I read Goldwaters book, Conscience of a Conservative, copyright about 1960. Its a very short book, to the point and highly illustrative of how far the Republican party has come in 50 years. You are 100% accurate. The Repugs are now Demons and the Demons are now full blown socialists. Its easy to locate and secure that book from the library. You will be absolutely amazed at how far the Republican party has come in 50 years. I want to make your acquaintance as I do of any Americans that are informed and awake.

    You need to get your facts straight instead of disparaging Mr. Paul with the wrong list. Rand Paul voted against both cloture and passage, as is listed in the official Senate record on their website. You also left out Murkowski, who actually voted Yae for both cloture and passage. I stopped counting inaccuracies in your list at that point, but I’d suggest not posting slanderous info.

    • Conservative Wanderer

      You, sir, need to check your facts.

      The roll call vote I was referring to took place on 11 June (same date as this post) and is number 146. There is a link in the article above, but I’ll give you another one here for your convenience.

      You will see if you look that Senator Paul is indeed listed as a “Yea” vote in the vote I was referring to.

      You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts. Kindly make sure you know what you’re talking about before you open your mouth on my blog again.

        Do you even understand anything on the political process? Your condemnation of Paul was because he voted on cloture on the motion to proceed. That means he voted to bring it to the floor for debate so he could say why it should not be passed. You should not be condemning him for doing that; he has always said he would vote against the bill, and he did.

        • Conservative Wanderer

          Do you understand that if the first cloture vote had failed, the bill likely would have been tabled at that point?

          Look, you got caught in a mistake, man up and admit that you were wrong and quit trying to prove that you’re the smartest kid on the block.
