Monumental Statements: Guns, Marriage and the Constitution

The Hill reported yesterday that Senators Ted Cruze (R- TX) Rand Paul (R- KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) regarding continued attempts by Democrats to implement gun control legislation.

It speaks to history’s lesson that government cannot be in all places at all times, and history’s warning about the Justice oppression of a government that tries,”

And this devastating question from Justice Scalia as reported by Gary Bauer at Campaign for Working Families :

Justice Scalia asked, “I’m curious, when did it become unconstitutional to exclude homosexual couples from marriage? 1791? 1868? When the Fourteenth Amendment was adopted?”

Olsen sputtered but could not answer. The left does not have arguments.  They have Low Information Voters.     R Mall

    Three cheers for Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee! Or as McCain calls them, the Whacko Birds! Another Filibuster from these three would be so awesome. These are the only three people in the Republican party that are actually worthy of support these days. Noticeably absent though is Marco Rubio? He was also Johnny-come-lately to Rand Paul’s drone Filibuster. Sometime’s I get a “Bluster and Blather” feeling about Rubio.
