10 Tea Party Senate Candidates Who Moved Left – Joni Ernst


joniernst


Yes, it’s a shocker. Typically politicians wait before they move to the left but it’s best to get bad news out of the way early. Ernst moved left right out of the gate and conservative voters weren’t the only ones fooled…

Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, proudly endorsed Joni Ernst for U.S. Senate: “Tea Party Express’ Executive Director Taylor Budowich said, ‘Republican voters of Iowa have the chance tomorrow to nominate Joni Ernst—a strong conservative—and turn their focus to defeating liberal Congressman Bruce Braley. It is important to nominate Ernst now, given her substantial lead in all recent primary polling, and avoid a party convention that only gives Braley more time to mount his campaign unimpeded.'”

However, during her short stint in the United States Senate, Ernst has earned a disappointing rating of only 63% from Heritage Action for America (the 501c4 arm of the Heritage Foundation) and a rating of 60% from Conservative Review. One can only hope that her conservative rating will go up as time passes but her votes on issues involving the Export-Import Bank, highway bailouts, No Child Left Behind and several other bills are problematic.


Biography:

Joni Ernst is a Republican United States Senator from Iowa who was elected to office in November of 2014. She was the first female from Iowa to be elected to the US Senate.

Born in Montgomery County, Iowa on July 1, 1970, Ernst was at the top of her class at Stanton High School and went on to Iowa State University to earn a bachelor’s degree in psychology and then to Columbus College to earn a master’s degree in public administration.

Ernst spent a little over a year from 2003-2004 serving in Kuwait, and has served a combined total of 22 years in National Guard and Army Reserve units. She is currently the lieutenant colonel of logistics and commander of the 185th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion in Camp Dodge, Iowa.

Prior to being elected to the Iowa State Senate in 2011, Ernst was elected to the position of County Auditor for Montgomery County. She served in the State Senate for 3 years before resigning to run for U.S. Senate.

After Democratic incumbent Tom Harkin retired, Ernst announced that she would run for office. She aired a satirical television commercial comparing her experiences with castrating pigs to her ability to cut fat in Congress, which helped her raise funds and rise in the polls. After her opponent criticized her voting records and said Ernst was AWOL from her duty, Ernst responded strongly and the two exchanged bitter remarks. She debated Democratic opponent Bruce Braley three times, and eventually won the race for the United States Senate by a margin of 52% to 44%.

As a senator, Ernst serves on several committees, including Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry; Armed Services; Homeland Security and Government Affairs; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship. Ernst has publicly stated she is against the IRS, Department of Education, and the EPA from a budgetary standpoint. Ernst is a strong proponent of state’s rights, and she is against the minimum wage and environmental regulation, citing the 10th amendment as a reason for these kinds of decisions to be left up to the states. She opposed so-called “same-sex marriage” and abortion, for similar reasons. She has opposed the Affordable Care Act and she supported the war in Iraq, claiming that it seemed most likely that Iraq had possession of weapons of mass destruction.

  • reggiec

    I went through all of them and they have all become ill with what I call “Potomac Fever”. That is when they get to Washington they start to believe that they are elite and no longer have to conform to the wishes of the folks that elected them. The bombardment by special interests and lobbyists promising the moon and cash for reelection blind them to any principles they had before being elected. The pressure by those already there (the establishment) pushes them to go along to get along. If they hold to their principles they are kept off committees, any bills they try to put forward are ignored and they are shoved under the bus.
    It takes a very special kind of person to resist all of that pressure. Apparently these ten did not measure up.

    • jaybird

      They are being punished by Boehner, he has them pulled off of prime committees if they vote against the bills that are brought forth. He has said they are a family/team and need to vote the same. SEE MY POST ABOUT BOEHNER ABOVE, PLEASE

  • SaneZidane

    I do believe she is real if given a chance to get out from under the control of Benedict Arnold McConnell.

    • jaybird

      It is Bonehead Boehner that is the problem also. SEE MY POST ABOVE.

      • SaneZidane

        She is a senator and out of the clutches of Jughead Boehner. Therefore it is the strong arm tactics of Mealy Mouth Mitch McConnell and his campaign to inhibit conservativism. He’s the one that will not let any action that would impede Obummers scorched earth policies. McConnell is the turd in the senate punchbowl.

    • Roany Macaroni

      McConnell has no control over her but Boehner does.

      • SaneZidane

        I’m at a loss…how can that be so? Isn’t she a senator?

        • Roany Macaroni

          Momentary senior moment… Please forgive. Yes, she is a senator and as such is under McConnell. Sorry about that.

          I have no idea where my mind was at the time I wrote that!

          • SaneZidane

            Ah Ha…you seem to be infringing on my senior moment territory. I know the feeling. 😉
            I still think she can be herself once they get that sorry ass McConnell out of the way.

    It is more than likely a case of being under the traitorous thumb of Mitch McConnell’s dislike for CONSERVATVES , Tea Partiers and veterans; the same thing that hurts all Conservatives with Boehner as Speaker of he House and BOTH of them should be ousted as NEITHER has done squat for their constituents and have been more beneficial l to illegals and other undesirables; like the oppressive programs of the Administration rather than acting in opposition to them as they were ELECTED TO DO! LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE DONALD! HE MAY NOT BE PRETTY BUT HE IS EFFECTIVE AND IF HE IS NOT ASSASSINATED MIGHT MAKE A BETTER PRESIDENT THAN ANYONE SUSPECTS SIMPLY BECAUSE HE IS NOT BY NATURE OR INCLINATION A CAREER PARASITE AS ARE ALL CAREER POLITICIANS.! Respect is EARNED. If you go by collective performance these past 7 years, how much RESPECT has been EARNED by anyone in this fraud of an Administration?

    • jaybird

      A real Conservative, Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) has put forth a motion for Boehner to “vacate the Speakers Seat” This motion is before the “Rules Committee” and they want it to go away because they took a head count before the August recess and they do NOT have enough votes to save his A$$. He has been punished by Boehner for not voting with the family/team (his words) or my words the Mafia Cartel. He pulls Conservatives off prime committees. Meadows was put back on because of public outcry. I could not believe that Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) pulled him off because he said he had to make changes but finally reinstated him, I guess he was following orders from Boehner. This Congressman needs your support, please call your Congressman and tell him to support Meadows motion. If we can’t get rid of him now, we have to wait until he is up for re-election and the good people of OH will have to do it. Nothing will happen unless there is people pressure. Please help!

      • Nikita63

        I am aware of mark meadows vacate plans and also the fact that the votes are not there or were not to save Boehner’s position had not the House went on hiatus. You can bet there is wheeling and dealing going on we will know nothing of to save his worthless behind for in truth; the GOP is FULL of nothing but Counterfeit Democrats and THAT is one reason a total neophyte like big, bad, brash, bold and RIGHT Donald Trump is scaring the excrement out of BOTH parties and, IT’S ABOUT TIME SOMEONE HAS SPOKEN AS HE HAS! Political correctness has destroyed this society and It is time for a sea change. With the Donald, we may get just that and I have a sneaking suspicion he would make a far better president than most think he would; simply because he is NOT a career parasite as are most pols and because he does as he says he will! MY , HOW UTTERLY REFRESHING THAT WOULD BE FOR A MUCH DEPRIVED, PERSECUTED AND OVERTAXED AMERICAN CITIZEN CONSTITUENCY SICK OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND THIS ADMINISTRATION IN PARTICULAR!~

        • jaybird

          Trump is refreshing! Whoever wins will have to deal with Bonehead and McJoke. Please call your Congressman to try and get Bonehead out, we have to try.

          • Nikita63

            My Congressman , Seth Moulton of the 6th Massachusetts congressional district did 4 tours in Iraq and as a platoon Commander in the USMC, led one of the first infantry units to enter Baghdad. One would think he might be opposed to the Iran Nuclear deal but he SUPPORTS it ; even though Iran is the predominant supporter of world wide Islamic terror and not to be trusted with a long history of treaty violations. He is par for the course in my state since until he was “promoted,” to Secretary of State to replace a prior crooked incompetent as one himself, John Forbes Kerry was my very short term senior Senator. I am a Vietnam vet and despise him. I am no fan of our two Senators EITHER as they ALWAYS vote a party agenda and NEVER what is best for their constituents; at least not those who are American citizens. One is very prominent in the Senate and the Democratic party though she has little practical experience and a penchant for, shall we say, “exaggeration,: of her American Cherokee Indian heritage. The other is a long term congressman of little or no real accomplishment. The first is, of course: Elizabeth Warren, a transplant from Oklahoma we know cryptically as “Lieawatha;” a name given her by local columnist Howie Carr. The other, Ed Markey. I did not and will; not vote for either of them and WILL work in 2016 or whenever they separately come up for re-election , AGAINST THEM. Why vote for anyone who never votes for anything that will benefit YOU but always illegals or other undesirables? ( like the voting of exemptions from Obamacare for all the OTHER parasites in congress) I agree: Bonehead and McJoke have to go but, there will be, I fear, no help from these useless party agenda drones! It is no accident that all of those mentioned are listed as democrats. I would call them what I think they are but I’d likely wind up in a FEMA camp by special invitation engraved in platinum! I know trying with these turkeys is futile because I have tried; many times; all for NOTHING!

          • jaybird

            My Uncle is a Vietnam vet, we talk at lest twice a week. I knew who you were talking about when you said Indian heritage and had to laugh, had not heard her nickname (Liawatha) before.
            I kinda know what you are up against but I do have a Repub. Congressman that is usually agreeabl. 2 Demorat Senators that are not. . Hang in there, we have to do what we feel might work.

          • mspatdev

            I agree with you. I also knew who you were talking about and yes, that Fema camp will have quite a few of us. When your supposedly Indian was running for office in Mass., they found out that she was not an Indian, but she is still running on it. If I was an Indian in Mass. I would against her.

          • Nikita63

            I am of Greek ancestry and my forbears came here in compliance with rather than in violation of American Law. I am the first to receive a degree but NOT the first to serve honorably in the military, though I am a Vietnam Vet of the 1968 Tet Offensive and with a degree in government. I enlisted to fulfill my CITIZENSHIP OBLIGATION under Selective Service in force at the time but I surely NEVER thought then that this country would be as damaged as it has been by those who as career parasites, thieves and liars, have so severely damaged our freedoms and choices as the traitors I see them as to their oaths of office and therefore to the country and all American citizens. Period! THEY NEED TO BE CONSTITUTIONALLY REMOVED: ALL OF THEM IN BOTH PARTIES!

        • mspatdev

          I agree with you. Trump and Cruz are on the hit list as D.C. doesn’t want either one of them in office. Trump has made the public aware of what is going on in the USA. There have been a lot of us wanting some like Trump to step in and to make a difference. He has the temperment, money, knows what to do, vehicles, etc. This administration has been in the works for a long time. His records, life and everything has been closed to everyone. He has paid millions of dollars to keep it quiet. But the world already knows a lot of what he is hiding. This is a very evil, vindictive, people. Only thing I have to say about it, he will get his just reward. He can’t hid from God and the angels. Every nail that he puts into us is more that he will have to suffer and his minions.

          • Nikita63

            The left cannot hide their ineptitutde ot the crookedness of Hillary Clinton, Lois Lerner, Al Sharpton, Micheal Bloomberg Chuck Schuker, Valerie Jarret, Sheila Jackson Lee, Jessie Jackson and Stephanie Rawlings Blake who is resigning or not running for re-election as mayor of Baltimore after the damage SHE and her leftist administration CAUSED! Neither can it be denied that EVERY investigation of impropriety from Fast and Furious to Benghazi to Solyndra to Deep Horizon AND every other scandal HAS been obfuscated and held up by denial of FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT requests by Judicial Watch and other agencies looking to Impeach the president for CAUSE! Where the STILL in Contempt of Congress former attorney General, Eric Holder left off, the continuing contrived interference is ongoing by his replacement , Loretta Lynch who herself, NEVER should have been confirmed. Don’t think so? Look at the leftist attempt to shut down Trey Gowdy’s ongoing investigation OF SHRILLARY’S TRANSGRESSIONS; MOST OF WHICH CERTIANLY APPEAR CRIMINAL IN NATURE AND SHE AS A PROFESSIONAL PREVARICATOR ALL THE WAY FROM HER ROLE IN WATERGATE INVESTIGATIONS AT AGE 27 AND THE WHITEWATER AND LEWINSKI SORDID SORTIES!.

          • PatriotGal

            mspatdev, they put Lt. Col. Allen West (ret) on that hit list of being toooo conservative and by redistricting him from a predominantly R area to a D area, got him out. Sure, it is the State that redistricts, but I’ll bet my last nickel, it was the RNC that had him redistricted and Boehner led the parade.

      • Chaz d

        Yup. I did write to my congressman, Mick Mulvaney (SC) and he responded with a letter stating he supports Mark Meadows. So there’s one more good one. Term limits for congress would go a long way in curbing the self-serving career politicians. My senator, Tim Scott supports term limits and we should make that an issue every chance we get.

        • jaybird

          Thanks so much. I have seen others supporting term limits. Congressman Brat (R-VA) very Conservative supports them, this is his 1st term, he replaced Eric Cantor who was Boehner’s partner ( I think Minority Whip?), he was not automatically put in Cantor’s position-I think McCarthy got it.. It is encouraging to see others supporting this. In VA, I have a Demorat Gov. and 2 Demorat Senators because of the gov. workers that live in Northern VA near DC, they vote Demorat. We have to fight on every issue at every chance we get.

          • mspatdev

            Term limits are the only way to go and no big retirements. obama did a presidential executive order a couple of years ago. He gave put himself up to 1 million dollars a year. Congress he put them up to $750,000 a year raise for what? They all don’t do their jobs. Some do, but the traitors have been threaten to do what obama wants. Congress, especially, in the past 7 years has gone the way of obama destroying the USA. I am very disappointed in Joni Ernst, as she has displayed what she has done for the women that really want to make a difference. Wow her and hillary are no examples of women in the USA Congress. They have broke the promises of women being elected. The men are not any better. Then Congress wonders why the people have no respect for them, I don’t. Even my own older senator has voted more for demo’s then GOP. I have no respect for him. I used to, but not any more.

          • mork

            Dont forget the LIFETIME secret service protection.

          • PatriotGal

            Congressman Brat is most impressive, more so because he was/is a college professor. One would think he would have been far left from the get go. Thank God, he is not.

        • 13gatorgrowl

          I also wrote and called my reps. THEY ALL LIE! They send the “I am on your side” letters BUT they continue to kiss a$$!

          • Chaz d

            That would be discouraging for sure. However, you can always write back and tell them you are aware of their two-faced game and that you will actively work for their opponent in the next election.

          • PatriotGal

            Absolutely, Chaz. Just because they write and “say”… means nothing. Keep writing – they do not have to have the last word. They are supposed to work FOR us, not AGAINST us.

I will never vote for Haley again, she is a coward and has no pride in her State, she caved immediately in the Flag fiasco. Tim Scott will not get my vote if someone as good runs against him. He caved also on the Flag.

As of the last recent election, it is TOTALLY DEMONcRAT. First thing they did, was raise taxes in the city. Here we go another wonderful city being ruined at the hands of the DEMONcRATS. Just watch it decay.

    • SaneZidane

      I agree wholeheartedly that she in all aspects is a real conservative and true to the cause, But she has nothing to do with Boehner, who’s sorry ass needs to be booted out of his position of doing Obama’s bidding. It is _itch McConnell who is Obama’s bitch in reality. He is impeding the whole process by using the same methods of coercion Boehner does.

    Looks like we have too many “wolves in sheep’s clothing” running in GOP!
    I do not think any of the GOP is kissing Obama’s shoes! THEY ACTUALLY THINK LIKE OBAMA! They pretend to be conservative BUT are running for GOP seats like the turncoats who switch from party to party just to get a seat! with NO dignity for the Party principles!
    We have had 29 years since the last TRUE GOP was in Office! Look at the maze?????
    It is a plain as the noses on our faces! There are NO Conservatives running for office anymore! Joe Scarborough on “Morning Joe” was a Republican Rep from Florida in the 1990’s. HE switched parties– NOW look at him! Think about the activities and platforms EVERY GOP has! Not one is 100% Conservative!
    Rick Perry quit the GOP candidacy for OUTUS because he caught big s#*t from the Texans who are Latino descent or illegal alien associated! THAT is why MANY public officials are putting their tail between their legs!
    Look at all the candidates: EVERYONE says they will “fix” the illegal invasion problem BUT HOW? AMNESTY! NOT ONE politician has the guts to enforce US Sovereignty and SAVE USA for the LEGAL American People who BUILT THIS Country!
    PEOPLE Better start looking for the forest in the trees! We are right now like Italy was during Mussolini RULE! ———Fascists (LGBT, Racial haters, gangs, criminals, drug dealers and suppliers) fighting communists (LIBERALS, RHINOs, PUBLIC OFFICIALS OF ALL PARTIES, PACs and RICH) with the LEGAL INCOME TAX PAYING UPSTANDING Americans IN THE MIDDLE AND PAYING for ALL of this BS!
    *NO ILLEGAL ALIEN has PAID for anything! NO refugee has PAID for anything since 1963.
    +Drugs keep 17 million STONED: turned on, tuned in and dropped out!
    *Gangs are here for ONE thing: US Government allows them here and allows them to operate like the Mafioso!
    *Every special interest gets EVERYTHING They WANT!
    *The typical Legal American Citizen who pays INCOME TAXES from working a JOB is FOOTING THE BILL!
    The only thing necessary for the triumph of EVIL is for ONE good man or woman to do NOTHING!
    PEOPLE we are BLEEDING!

  • 13gatorgrowl

    Every politician sits in the Congress and LIES! They go back to constituents in their States and have those “feel good” town meetings, send out those “I am on your side” letters BUT THEY DO NOTHING BUT LIE! They all say: “I support securing the borders”, “I support this”, “I support That”, BUT NOTHING CHANGES! THEY all continue down the slippery slope of LIARS in the US Government! Look at the SCOTUS, Look at Washington, Our Borders are WIDE OPEN and we are forced to PAY THE ILLEGALS WAY! The POTUS has too much power and always has! Congress just kisses a$$! The American People continue to pay out the nose while OUR families have to pay for other’s laziness and good for nothing drug addicted lives!
    Maybe it is time for USA to go communist!–That is what it seems everyone wants!
    NOTHING HAS CHANGED SINCE in this Country since 1963!

    What I get from these 10 lying and traitorous Politicians is The TEA Party needs to stop endorsing a Candidate just because a RINO wins the nomination. The TEA Party needs to look closer at past records and actually talk to the person they will endorse. Marco Rubio stabbed the Florida TEA Party in the back and they will not have anything to do with him.

    Er, “Ernst has publicly stated she is against the IRS, Department of Education, and the EPA from a budgetary standpoint. Ernst is a strong proponent of state’s rights, and she is against the minimum wage and environmental regulation, citing the 10th amendment as a reason for these kinds of decisions to be left up to the states. She opposed so-called “same-sex marriage” and abortion, for similar reasons. She has opposed the Affordable Care Act and she supported the war in Iraq, claiming that it seemed most likely that Iraq had possession of weapons of mass destruction.”
    What is wrong about that? Those are correct, Tea Party, conservative, patriotic positions.

    Voters should have known better than to vote for someone who campaigned on her experience in castrating pigs. She merely substituted conservatives for pigs.

    It seems that the Tea Party Express needs removal more than its endorsed candidates.

  • Rodger K. Shull

    They are all, LIARS an CORRUPT an CRIMINALS, they promise an then break promise, with regularity , if they said a promise then they need to be held to that promise, or get the BOOT an an EXIT DOOR, previous congress-persons an senators, have made laws that gave the new generation a BIG PRIZE in wage an benefits, it is all about GREED an the knowing that only an election can get them BOOTED OUT OF OFFICE, but still keep all of that PRIZE FOR LIFE. NOT ONE VOTE should go thru , either house, with out the public,s approval , an all that needs to be done is with the cell phone,.

    I don’t get it,… ??…
    I’m still looking for the information in this article, WHICH EXPLAINS what policy-positions she has actually changed on,.. to become a traitor to the Tea-Party?
    Unfortunately,.. there’s a WHOLE LOT OF ACCUSATIONS,.. on some of these websites,,.. which don’t clearly explain WHY there should be ‘anger’ against conservatives. Is this mentality the same as the ‘Black-Lives-Matter’ movement,.. only form a ‘conservative’ side? Just want to stir-up emotion-anger-Crusade? Usually the accusations that I see stated seem unfounded, and baseless,… just a misguided and MISPLACED need to WHINE-AND-COMPLAIN.. An ‘unbalanced’ wish to call someone a RINO.
    Usually, the person being called a RINO has a questionable position on some policy,. but may be very good (from a Conservative-perspective on OTHER POSITIONS.
    But I see the ‘anger’ and name-calling from supposed-conservatives,.. as usually just peevish-factionalism. Nothing Biblical,… nothing sound,… just a ‘tempest in a teapot’,… a temper-tantrum without a good outcome,.. not guided by principles of truth of the Bible,.. but useless hand-wringing. It just leads to dis-repaired judgment!
    Once you ‘label’ someone,.. then you don’t have to think anymore. That’s the tool of the Left, which misguides so many Obama-and-Democrat-voters. Just call Conservatives ‘RACIST’,.. and you can discard their ideas,… NO ‘thinking’ necessary. .
    It seems that spiritual darkness is pulling the ‘bitterness’ chain of a lot of confused, and hysterical folks who call themselves ‘conservatives’,.. but usually it’s on some remote, particular ‘hobby-horse’ subject,.. which is not being massaged-as-they-wish it to be? Or it’s a HALF-TRUTH about he person, which the accuser grinds-on?
    But we have to see the WHOLE truth,.. the whole picture within ‘context’,…. PATIENCE’ is still a ‘fruit of the Holy Spirit of God. And no one is PERFECT,.. only God’s love is perfect. Once your justify your victim-hood status,.. your anger will only create more problems than you think you solve.

    Please,.. give me a better argument, than he/she is a RINO? Please, tell me something of substance,,.. and significance,.. which is of a CLEAR moral danger, if you expect me to join your LYNCH-MOB!

    Ideas, Truth, and Courage MATTER!

  • SaneZidane

    I still feel Joni is for real. She just couldn’t run far enough to be away from Thugboat Senator _itch McConnell and his threats of goodies and position he would keep from her to become as effective as she had promise. Truth be known, it has happened to others caught in the same situation.Threats from the senates top Turncoat RINO can be too severe to overcome at the time. Give her a chance once Mealy Mouth McConnell is booted out of his ill gotten position.

  • edward gamils

    Why are these liars that turn into RINO’s still in their positions. Can they not be recalled by the voters they are misleading by these SOB’s.

  • Mwalltexan

    Where’s Marco Rubio? The establishment’s darling and a proud member of the “Gang of Eight”!
    At least he was proud of himself as one of the eight until it backfired on him and then he began to scramble.

    He’s an “establishment RINO” wannabe, make no mistake about him, he’s a little weasel.

  • canurelate

    I called her D.C. office last week and commented on her campaign ad about castrating hogs. Since she voted “Yea” on the CR I guess she doesn’t mind funding PP abortions either! Truly disgusting! Told them I wanted my campaign contribution BACK! I know that is a pipe dream…just couldn’t resist. I’m done with Ernst and her ilk! Done making campaign contributions to the so called Republican Party!

    I think this staunch conservative to RINO is a disase that prevails around the country. I know it does in my county in Florida. Candidates must be thoroughly vetted, and held accountable for their actions!!!

    this is why I am no longer a republican, they lie as much as democrats and stab us in the back as soon as they get into office

  • Ranchman

    Recall her, right now, before she can screw things up even more.

  • RiverMikeRat

    LOL. Moved left. That’s funny.

    I was just having this conversation with someone the other day. If a GOP politician doesn’t completely toe the party line and shows some common sense and maybe even a desire to compromise a little in order to actually do their job and get some useful work done in office, they’re automatically called a RINO by the farthest right and the extreme hard right media. It’s the main reason that this Congress and the one before are and were the worst ever in terms of not doing a damn thing to get the US back on track to sustainability in terms of job creation, infrastructure upgrades and repairs, and more.

    Governing is all about compromise, give a little, get a little. But all the hard right wants it to get, they (you) don’t want to give any. You’re causing our once great country to become a fourth-rate third world shithole.

  • stanleyhead

    As has happened the elected can get more money by voting with the liberals then the native Americans. Native over illigal. Most RINOS are in government to reap a sizable retirement and Kick back money for their vote. We the people do not know how much we love someone untill they are sick & close to death. America is sick and close to death; If the native Americans loose the next election to some socialest America is dead. We need a leader who can pull our country out of the doldrums. Some one who went bankrupt but did not quit. A person who is not of the establishment but under stands business. I say Trump would fill that bill.

    Everyone “should” stick to their values and commitments, but something happens when newly elected ‘junior congressmen and senators’ arrive in Washington, DC. I have yet to discover the torturous location or the verbiage expressed that turn heads and disrupt one’s principles. One only needs to witness the likes of: Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Charles Schumer, Charles Rangel, and others, to better understand the terror that may exist, for newcomers. The system has been corrupted and elected individuals no-longer…for the most part, choose to make the hard choices, and work for the people that elected them into office.

    Not so much that they shifted left, They did. But it’s how seamlessly they just moved right in with the Washington Establishment. It’s politics, I get it, but from “I’m your Tea Party Candidate” to giving us the middle finger and probably referring to Tea Party as “tea baggers”.

    “Just elect the right people!” is the cry of the John Birch Society and the Eagle Forum. Well, look at what happens even when we score apparent victories at the ballot box. Those we’ve worked hard to elect were either deceiving us or have been seduced by Washington elites, “gone native”, and succumbed to “Potomac Fever.”

    Moral: the ballot box is certainly *necessary*, but it is not *sufficient*. Stated simply, the ballot box *alone* is not enough. We *also* need to use the remedy the Framers put in the US Constitution under Article V. See, for example, conventionofstates.com and/or compactforamerica.org. And by all means buy, beg, borrow, or steal a copy of Mark Levin’s book, the Liberty Amendments. It will give you hope …

  • OlGyreneFU

    We as citizens should have learned by now that if any politician speaks that they are only saying what they think those who will be voting want to hear, and that they will not be held responsible for what they actually do or say after they are voted into office. But only because we the people do not pay attention once we put them in office or we just plain do not care enough to do anything about them not actually performing as their pre election rhetoric said they would.

  • clearmorning7

    What makes this happen. What makes a candidate that says all the right things, makes you believe what they are saying but once they get to DC, it becomes another? These 10 were trusted people, we believed in them so much that we worked very hard to help elect them, we spent money, time, phone calls, letters etc. to help get these people where they are. Is there a “Pious pill, or elitists drug” in DC? That once they are elected they feel they know better than the “common man” that put them there? How is it that they no longer remember or even care about promises made, is there a drug there that erases memory? Is this a “Royalty syndrome? Seriously what makes these people change where they think the people just don’t know, or don’t care. or don’t remember?? These elected officials have so corrupted society and expect US -WE the people-to allow it??? It is incredulous to me the freaken arrogance that they have. Their salary is paid by US, they got into office because of US, what, they think we could not do their job? The only reason why we are not there is 1)we did not have the money 2) we do not have the connections 3) we will not sell our souls to become such sellouts 4) we have a conscience 5) we care. Look folks what they have done is really unforgivable, we really need to fight for term limits and these 10 are perfect proof as to why! This is not what our Founders wanted to happen, this is what our founders warned us about!

    I think they are too weak to handle the massive onslaught of derision conservatives face day in and day out. They may have good intentions in the beginning, but when they enter HELL, it’s harder to stick with their promises they should not have made in the first place.

    I was the first woman mayor in the history of my county, and in running I made NO PROMISES. I told the people that the only promise I COULD make is that I would be HONEST and FORTHRIGHT. That got me elected. I accomplished what I set out to do, and never ran again – but I kept the only promise I made.

    Tea party has not been good with the vetting process for awhile. As a non tea party (used to be) my fam, myself, as well as many others, especially those of us that were opposed to amnesty were totally against Cory Gardner, Colorado. The tea party wave got him in. Don’t know much about Joni but I do know that my mom liked her.

  • canurelate

    No wonder Gov. Terry Branstad is “pushing” for Trump to name her as his Veep! Just this week Branstad was all on board for Trump. Branstad used to be a conservative…now “not so much”. Oh, and yes I did vote for Ernst…sorry I was deceived by this Rino. I do call her Senate office and call her out for backing the current regime. Although I’m not on the Trump train I don’t care if he chooses a male or female for the Veep position. If he chooses a proven conservative as a running mate I would feel more comfortable voting for him.
