For me, Senator John McCain is turning out to be the biggest disappointment. If President Trump is FOR it, John McCain is AGAINST it.

Trump: Let's Repeal ObamaCare.
McCain: Not so fast! I voted 51 times to Repeal it, but don't want to, now that you're President!

Trump: We'll hit Kim Jong with Fire and Fury!
McCain: Not so fast! I'm having second thoughts about my love of WAR, now that you're President!

The spoiled grudge-holding brat can't forgive/forget that candidate Trump said that he wasn't a war hero, because he got captured.

McCain is Nancy Pelosi in a 5,000.00 dollar suit.

Yeah...right now, it wouldn't matter if we had a Democrat or a Republican majority in Congress, with Donald Trump as President. Uh..on second thought...If Democrats were the majority, we'd have an ObamaCare replacement. Probably the hybrid that I'd like to see.

Do you think Roy Moore is too conservative for Donald Trump? He's disappointed that Trump endorsed his challenger in Alabama..Luther Strange. (what a name, eh?)

Rand Paul


You seem to be in the majority, InfoLurker. Maybe President Trump should see what he can do to get Rand replacing Mitch ASAP?

As memory serves, the Commonwealth of Kentucky posted red before the first votes were counted in the election.

Probably wouldn't be a lot of difficulty introducing challengers that would bury both RINO McConnell and RINO Rand Paul.


I'm surprised that you give Rand Paul "RINO" status. He did take one bribe, but that's not a big deal compared to his colleagues, is it?

He may be the worst RINO the conservatives have ever faced. He actively recruits non-conservatives to join the GOP. His 'grow the party' BS is destroying what is 'essentially' the base.

Rand Paul IS the Purple plague.


I have no choice but to believe you in this, Snarl. You obviously know the inner workings of Rand Paul. I just know what the conservative MSM, and ATS members like yourself share.

I think rand works over the aisle better and we need someone who isn't standing up for things for petty reasons. At least in Rands case it would be idealism to classical liberal ideals.

Ted can't get along real well with anyone. Smart as he is , also enjoys grand standing slightly more for personal things rather than legislative ideas for the masses.

I'm sure that may be true to some degree, but a major plank (some would say THE major plank) of the Republican party for 7 years now has been "repeal Obamacare." Now they have the perfect chance, a majority on both houses, a President with pen ready, a conservative majority in the Supreme Court, and they refuse to repeal it AFTER repealing it when Obama was refusing to sign it.

I expect California and to some extent New York to champion the disaster... both are enamored as of late with socialist ideals of fairies riding unicorns along rainbows to make friends with leprechauns guarding the pot of gold at the end of the journey. Fine. If the constituents demand something, I can see the representatives representing even if I disagree.

But this is about blatant lying to gain political points with those who obviously wanted different than the way representatives voted when it mattered. This is why I am not now, never have been, and never will be a member of any political party. This is why I am proudly Independent. The lies have been exposed and it's time to repeal and replace Congress itself, so maybe they'll get the idea we're going to have repeal and replace of something.

Yeah I agree, the thing I am pissed about is the lack of plan and transparent process. You have this bill getting locked up in secret and then a leadership that can't get people on board to be more trusting.

Of coarse if they don't get rid of the lobaby power who is really writing the bill?

Be nice to talk about a variety of ideas. Maybe a compromise like the Swiss system. Competing non profits.

The problem if it's not bipartisan is the constant swing back and forth and everyone suffering extremes of the the two parties ideas through their donors.

Well, we actually have three less-than-ideal choices this time.

Mo Brooks used to be a good solid conservative, but he has recently become isolated and indifferent to the population. I wrote him a year or two ago about a serious (IMO) problem with security clearances and how they are obtained. I expected either a promise to look into the matter or an explanation of why the problem was necessary. I got a letter insulting my intelligence by telling me exactly what I originally wrote and offering no other course of action.

I do not trust Luther Strange. I never have. Don't ask me why, but I do not believe he has the interests of Alabama at heart. I believe he is simply an opportunist riding the Trump wave.

Roy Moore is actually TOO conservative in many ways, but he has shown one trait throughout his career that I always respect: an unwillingness to compromise core principles. Compromise is a good thing, but true compromise a two-way street to accomplish the core principles of both sides to some degree, not a willingness to abandon them to get a temporary agenda passed.

Now add in that the current campaign consists of Strange accusing Brooks of disparaging Trump, Brooks calling Strange a liar, and Moore stating he wants to end corruption in Washington DC and bring back conservative values... given the choices... Roy Moore gets my vote.

Plus, I want to see Elizabeth Warren's head literally explode...

Congress failed because they didn't have a plan ready for when they got the chance.

Trump failed because he didn't have any plan for when he was elected.


It was all worthless talk so that they could be elected.

President Trump, picking up where he left off yesterday.. urging Majority Leader McConnell:


Tweet #1 to McConnell: "Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing. You can do it!", Trump tweeted this morning.

Tweet #2 to followers: "Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done. Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!"

I wonder if trump even understands the bill they were debating or if he just wanted a win no matter what.

Well, consider that Judge Roy Moore was the guy who refused to remove a plaque of the Ten Commandments from the wall of his courtroom... even after he was censured for his refusal.

Chief Justice Roy Moore was the guy who recently refused to adhere to the US Supreme Court's ruling on Alabama's Constitutional Amendment prohibiting gay marriage, and directed the county Probate Judges to cease issuing marriage certificates for gay couples... and would not reverse his order even when threatened with removal.

Now, I think he was right on the first and wrong on the second (as was the US Supreme Court)... but the point is that he stands for everything Washington liberals despise and refuses to back down one iota regardless of the consequences. That's what we need in DC right now: people who will stand up and take a position without wavering from it in the face of adversity. The Republican Congress is not evil; just lily-livered and afraid they'll get called some kind of "-ism" for standing firm om principle.

If we the people of Alabama give him the same voice California gave Warren... hoo boy, let the fireworks begin!

Warren is from MA.

And the supreme court was correct. You were denying government contracts.

The only constitutional thing would be for the government to back out of marriage all together. If they were denying a contract for religious reasons it's against the constitution.

The plaque is complicated. Ultimately comes down to the social contract.

Alabama should stop being publicly biased against gays IMO so that investments from business feel comfortable settling in Alabama.

We have had a good little economic boost in SC after the NC bathroom fiasco.

Oops... my bad.

I don't want to derail this thread on a hotbutton issue, but I do want to say I agree wholeheartedly with

We're not. We simply want to govern ourselves as per the Constitution.

Public opinion cannot be changed by the one being demonized, as long as demonization continues. That's what cost the liberal left their power; people came to recognize that dynamic. As long as people are led to believe that Alabama is this backward, anti-gay, racist, hateful den of haters, nothing we do will be seen in a different light. So, we might as well stop fighting the perception and turn our attention to those behind the propaganda.

What do we have left to lose?
