Backroom deals won’t do Tennessee much good if America’s national security is compromised.
Tennessee Senators Lamar Alexander (R) and Bob Corker (R) must not have considered national security when they decided to vote in favor of ratifying the dangerous New START Treaty. They also failed to research Russia’s alliance with countries like Iran, China, North Korea and Venezuela.
It appears the Tennessee Senators were interested in bringing home the pork at the expense of our nation’s security. Zachary Roth’s December 23rd article states:
“It will likely include more than $6 billion dollars for a uranium processing facility, to be built at the Y-12 weapons compound in Oak Ridge, Tennessee (pictured). Indeed, the states’ two GOP senators, Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander, both said that money for modernization — and therefore, in all likelihood, pork for their district — was a key condition of their support.”
Senator Corker’s voting record has been relatively honorable, so it would be disgraceful if he betrayed the best interest of our country only to cave for a backroom pork deal.
Progressive Senator Lamar Alexander’s voting record is a different story. Here are just a few Progressive nuggets in his voting record.
- Food Takeover – he voted ‘Yes’ on S.510 which now gives the federal government fascist control of our food supply. Liberals and conservatives who researched this bill opposed it.
- $15 Billion Slush Fund – He voted ‘Yes’ on HR 2847 which gave Obama another $15 Billion Stimulus for his special interest union pals. Under the guise of an infrastructure “Jobs Bill,” unemployment has risen since its passage on March 17, 2010 and Obama admitted publicly that there are no shovel ready jobs.
- Forced Volunteerism and Child Recruitment – He voted ‘Yes’ on HR 1388 which recruits children from our public schools and universities to become part of Obama’s Civilian Security Force. Required reading for this program includes Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”
- Sonia Sotomayor Confirmation – He voted ‘Yes’ for a racist Marxist to serve on our Supreme Court.
Lamar Alexander is up for re-election in 2014. Unless he openly recognizes the damage he’s inflicting on our country by voting for unconstitutional legislation and a dangerous treaty, it’s time to search for someone else… a constitutional and fiscally responsible person who can run against him in the 2014 primary election.
