".......... That measure of control would have been the capture of our sovereignty had the Senate bill labeled ‘Treaty Doc 112-7 not been rejected by a vote of 61 to 38, failing to reach the 67 votes needed. If passed it would have meant that for the first time in the 237 years of our history we would have lost our sovereign rule to a foreign power, namely the United Nations gang of cut-throat thieves, bandits and would-be world rulers............"

That list shows you exactly who the uber RINOs are in the Senate, but it shouldn't be a surprising list considering their votes on previous legislation such as Obamacare.

And the media continues to trot McCain out for "moar war" interviews as if he's some expert on the Syrian situation. Why that guy has any shred of credibility left with anyone is just baffling to me. This goes to show that the last two GOP pres candidates really were no better than Obama in any material way.

edit: fwiw this treaty was not gun control related.

Also interesting to note that the article seems to imply that Snowe and Collins are lesbian lovers.

They do have fairly bad voting records, but not a single Republican voted for Obamacare.

There really is no such thing as RINO anymore. Progressive Republicans are mainstream. They ARE the party.

We tried to get rid of the Spoiled Princess (Murkowski) in '10 and did. She was beaten in the closed primary. But Alaska's Lamestream Propaganda Corps along with the Dead Indian/Eskimo lobby and lefty DSMF transients infesting skAnchorage managed to demonize her opponent enough to where she won on a write-in campaign......... and the promise to bring in more of your hard-earned L48 tax dollas didn't hurt either.

The Republicans of today are the dems. of 50 years ago. The dems of today have moved so far left they are not on the same planet.

We just recently witnessed this play out, didn't we? And doubtless we will again in 2016 when the GOP runs yet another establishment stooge. The propaganda machine is already gearing up to implant a Ryan or Rubio firmly into the popular consciousness as the "electable","reasonable" choice. Current talking points involve "a pathway to citizenship" and a "role for government in the economy".

I think having the Tea Party grow into a solid, powerful, political force and a replacement for what is now shamming itself as the Republican Party would be a reasonable course to pursue.

You have to consider the entire situation.

I really wish Obama was still a senator.

Think about it.

Yep, and the same BS about how an "electable" statist guy is what they need while the bible thumpers do their usual "never been a better time for a hate monger" dance and the non-party portion of the country looks on horrified at the right wing choice of big church/big state.

Then Hillary starts spewing her BS and the liberals give their "government should help" feeder capturing the slackers. The minorities that are undecided pick the lesser to them Dem evil.

A few million vote for non Dem/Rep candidates.

The rest of the undecided voters wrestle with a choice between two steaming piles and split somewhat evenly.

Most stay home because they either don't see enough difference in the two or because voting for either would violate what the office is suppose to mean to them.

Without a return to liberty and the shrinking of government that gives it, there is no chance to turn this country around. It is likely too late already.

Strange, since Obama singled out Snowe to thank her for her efforts in getting Obamacare passed.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--teyYVKMps&feature=youtu.be

There's a lot more votes that take place on legislation than just the final roll call vote. Snowe voted for Obamacare to make it out of committee.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/HealthCare/senate-finance-committee-approves-health-care-bill/story?id=8817603


Sen. Olympia Snowe, the sole Republican to vote in favor of a health care reform bill that passed the Senate Finance Committee today told ABC News she chose to break with party lines (http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=8821870)because, "I do happen to believe that we have to move the process forward, on this very difficult and challenging issue."
The committee passed the measure, introduced by Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., by a 14-9 vote.

Both she and Collins are often the deciding votes on Democrat legislation in various committees and floor votes. There are other examples but I don't feel like digging them up.

Interesting that all the mainstream media coverage ignored the prolife and parents rights opposition and portrayed it as something unfortunately defeated by the "Teaparty" for "flimsy" sovereignty paranoia, making disabled veterans and Bob Dole weep and here the alternative media ignores what the treaty even was that was defeated.

It's been too late for decades if not more. That so many do not realize this is why the Republicans keep putting up folks like McCain and Romney.

Yeah, you're probably right. We had a shot with Reagan but unfortunately he wasn't the small government Goldwater man he claimed to be. Nobody since has even talked of moving in the right direction.

Well...Ron Paul...

The Establishment Republicans decided four more years if Obama would be better than four years of Paul and so that is what we have.

There is little difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. That has been true for many decades now. All of our politicians in Washington have lost sight of the Constitution.

The UN has turned into nothing more than an America-bashing institution that thinks they have the power to create and enforce law within sovereign nations. We need to kick their ass out of New York.

As for McCain, he's a feeble old man who has lost his mind.

The hardcore party members are too stupid to vote for freedom, they believe in government running people's lives, just they want the government to run it "their" way. The typical response was "supporters like him because they want to get stoned or allow gay marriage" instead of seeing the reality that it isn't about the item but if government can control that, it can control everything.

You'd think after Obama care forcing birth control on them and such they'd wake up and accept that maybe, just maybe they'd have better luck leading by example than forcing their views down others throats but there is no reason with statists, Republican or Democrat.
