Following the epic, 21-hour speech by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, supporting the defunding of Obamacare, either voters made so many calls to establishment Republicans that their phone lines melted, or those GOP leaders took their phones off the hook.
Even in this age of digital wizardry and limitless voicemail, callers could not get through at all to Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
A message said the senator was experiencing a high volume of calls and directed members of the public to call back later or visit his website.
It was the same story with the man who was the face of the GOP in the 2008 elections, former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz....

Jim isn't as liberal as most liberals, but none of them admit to being liberals anyway.
Now when Jim comes out as vehement in his condemnation of democrats, and they have many things worthy of condemnation, then we will know he is an independent. I really appreciate his helpful post, but not holding my breath waiting for that to happen.
I know something of Sen. Cruz's inflexible history, in fact, I do believe he's a Protestant? As I pointed out before, too many Romish types come from an authoritarian Church, which means there are no gray areas, anywhere, this is why they are all too often radically Right or Left, but very rarely a moderate, except for some who do become Christian. Surprise, surprise, there are even grey areas in religion, though I think my pastor would be quick to point out not as many as a lot of people would want, Guidelines for Using Our Liberties.
I was just pointing out Castro and Cruz apparently brothers under the skin in being inflexible and delivering overly long speeches, so while their politics are no doubt quite different both have used the tactics of a demagogue. as has Randy Paul as well.
Jim, You use emoticons and "drunkenly" call Senator Cruz Fidel Castro while completely disregarding the fact his father ESCAPED from Cuba. Then you cite scripture to say what is not heaven worthy, though you are guilty of doing in your post. Got it, you don't like Cruz, but don't be a Stalin calling Fidel a Communist.
You mean he's our Fidel Castro, who is also a windbag. If you can numb people into a stupor with 21 hours of blather you might as well quit.
1 Corinthians 6 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.---NASB
Like all verses of the Bible, I most wholeheartedly agree that verse 9 is an important verse, now if we can just get GOP politicians and --some--note I didn't say all their supporters would notice there is also verse 10, we all would all be better off.
Easton Dictionary wrote: COVETOUSNESS: a strong desire after the possession of worldly things (Col. 3:5; Eph. 5:5; Heb. 13:5; 1 Tim. 6:9, 10; Matt. 6:20). It assumes sometimes the more aggravated form of avarice, which is the mark of cold-hearted worldliness.
Senator Cruz is the William Wallace of our country. The McConnell's and McCain's are the Nobles of the American political elites. Cruz is a political radical who shamed the other politicians and, God help us, wake up the lazy sheep of this nation.
