Breaking! Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) - “we are under Martial Law”

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) reports from the floor of the House that the Republicans have been cut out of the process and called unpatriotic for not blindly supporting the fraudulent bailout. He says the only debate has been about what talking points to use on the American people. The most ominous revelation is when he claims the Speaker has declared martial law.

Is he up for re-election?

If he is insinuating a political coup from the wealthy, then he has a responsibility to order their arrests. Unless he is going along with the bailout and wanted to try to calm his constituents before Election Day....
It is Congresses responsibility as a whole to protect the American people, this bail out and the financial crisis that brought us here are all matters of national security, and if proven a threat to that security then the arrests should happen well before a bill is voted on, or at the very least an independent investigation into the motives of those that are rushing this through.

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

He was basically speaking about the atmosphere on the floor of the House, it appears that Pelosi has used heavy-handed tactics that appear to be little more than Martial Law in the House of Representatives. It's all in the Context folks!

I think it might be a parliamentary procedure

that refers to the House, not the country, to force a quorum for a legit vote. That's not to say the country might not be placed under martial law if things keep going downhill.

Wow!

This just gets uglier and uglier.

wait was he being figuritive

wait was he being figuritive or was that actually in the bill?

It is figurative because the

It is figurative because the rules of the House require three days to read a bill between introduction and vote but w/ a simple majority the Speaker can call for a vote to over ride this and this is what she is doing and then they can bring up any bill at any time no matter what.

Should sound familiar to a lot of people from state conventions.

Some offices are staffed.

Keep calling.
