Tea Party Radio Gives "Tombstone Award" to 4 GOP Sens. Who Defected on Marriage


LetThePeopleVote.comIn Tea Party Review magazine:

This week's TOMBSTONE AWARD goes to the actions of four Republican state senators in New York. Each week Doc Holliday issues a TOMBSTONE of the Week Award that goes to an action, deed or words that deserve to be placed six-feet under the ground. You can hear the award and the rest of this week’s show at Doc Holliday’s Tea Party link by clicking here.

These four New York state senators, Jim Alesi, Roy McDonald, Steve Saland, and Mark Grisanti provided the margin of passage for the new same-sex marriage law in the state of New York. These modern day Benedict Arnold's were the four Republican votes needed to make this law pass. Their votes in Albany were completely different from the way they campaigned during their election posturing.

Tea Party patriots around the country, beware of RINO Republicans who campaign one way and once they get elected vote the opposite way. It doesn't matter what you think of the subject of same-sex marriage, the fact is these Republicans campaigned one way and voted another. They betrayed their constituents. These modern day Benedict Arnold's should get primary opponents and be kicked out of office the next election, and their votes in the state senate should be buried six-feet beneath a tombstone.

    Imagine a government that knows the Constitution and adheres to it. Imagine politicians with morals who take personal responsibility for their actions. Go Tea Party!

    NOM and the extreme anti-gay industry is getting more and more loose with their veiled hatred of gays. The Republicans in NYC voted their conscience AND they voted with the vast majority of New Yorkers who support quality, both Republicans and Democrats. Spin as you may but those are the facts.

    The voters of California, the true government, already decided. And, yes, I support their decision.

    This is a lot like the rhetoric before the Giffords shooting. Shame on you for promoting it NOM, if these people are harmed, yes, it will be on your hands.

    Some folks are too dumb to understand metaphor, which is used on both sides of the debate. King Obama, for example, said of the Republicans: "If they bring a knife we'll bring a gun."

    The Giffords shooter (whose name I intentionally omit) cared nothing about politics. That's a dead horse (metaphor).

    Race does not equal gender. Another dead horse (another metaphor).

    But it was ruled unconstitutional, and you're okay with that, right?

    If the Framers of the Constitution had thought for a minute that anyone would dare treat the requirement that marriages be between persons of opposite sexes as open to question,they would have spelled it out.They had too much faith in the intelligence of future Americans.

    This would be great if the Tea Party could use this as a rallying cry around the rest of the country. In New York the RINO's would have to think twice if they see people voting for the new Conservative Party.
    But what happened in New York may create after shocks across the country and rally the people to defend marriage. Minnesota and North Carolina are getting to vote. Will the people of Illinois and Pennsylvania demand the same? Could we see future elections where those who suppost marriage as it should be getting elected and those who betray us losing elections.

    We are all Created equal, but this in itself does not mandate equal treatment; what the framers of the constitution strove to ensure was equal access. The 14 Amendment makes this fact abundantly clear when it notes that you cannot be denied equal treatment without due process of law


    Being denied equal treatment is constitutionally permissible.

    In the world of the same-sex enthusiasts murderers, rapists, and thieves were "Born that way."

    In my world (in which I prefer to be called "gay" or "human"), murderers, rapists, and thieves are not "Born That Way," Randy.

    Thanks for the misconstrued nonsense, though! Love ya!
