Angry John Cornyn & Gun Control

Well looky here...they got to one of ours. Even though the guy had purchased the guns illegally because the USAF screwed up. Maybe he ought to fix that loophole first.

Cornyn has never been one of us. He is a snake.

Cornyn has never been "one of ours". He misrepresents himself as a republican at every election. He tricked people again last election. Cornyn probably sees himself as the new McCain

I'm all for more accurate checks and making sure people like the POS church shooter don't slip through the cracks.

lI don’t think we will be able to stop all of these sort of things, but if we can stop one” it would be worthwhile, Cornyn said in Washington. He predicted that talk of restricting Americans’ gun rights “gets us into a stalemate again,” while fixing existing laws to improve the background check system is an area where “we ought to be able to work together.”
I am not a Cornyn fan. I agree with the above that he is a snake. A RINO for sure. That being said, if he’s willing to help enforce the laws and hold those, like the USAF who fail to follow the law accountable, then I’m willing to listen to his proposals.

Cornyn is an effin slime ball. He is only concerned about Conservative values at election time.

He is the Majority Whip in the Senate. You don't get that job without cuddling with the worst or the worst Repubes. He IS "The Establishment" and he needs to go away.

There's a reason he has glommed onto Ted Cruz as of late. He needs to appear to be on the correct side going into the mid-terms. What a piece of crap. I'd pay money to spit in his face.

Ted Cruz actually had a background bill that didn’t pass years back. Part of it was if you falsified your application the system would automatically notify and you would be prosecuted for a felony. I’m not sure what the other parts were but they were common sense things.

During the Obama years over 40k false applicants and there were only 44 prosecuted.

Me too. Cornyn does not deserve to be reelected. He is a lying power-hungry establishment type RINO. But there is nothing at all bad about ensuring that the current background check system works as it should.

I cannot speak to that specific bill but Cornyn has been fundamental in extinguishing Cruz's efforts in the Senate for most of Cruz's time there. He actively campaigned against Cruz in the primary, favoring David Dewhurst, a fellow piece of crap. Mr. "Do you know who you're talking to?"

I'm all for accurizing information on violent offenders but a mentally challenged monkey can do that. We don't need Cornyn to save humanity.

In that case, you are misinformed. Cruz didn't run on building a wall nor did he take money from Goldman-Sachs. He cashed out his own investments with the firm in order to fund his Senatorial campaign.

As for the wall....Trump ran on that platform and no one else. How on God's green Earth is Cruz responsible for that not happening? Do you honestly believe Trump's campaign took no money during the campaign?

I should have been more specific, this was what he ran on in 2012, and besides the loan he took out from Goldman equaling 1.2 million they have donated $133K to him, which puts him in as a top 10 beneficiary of Goldman donations.


From 2012 Debate
MODERATOR: "He supports building a wall along the entire Texas/Mexico border. Is that something that you would support? Yes, no, why? We’ll start with you, Mr. Cruz."

CRUZ: "Yes. We have an illegal immigration crisis and we need to do everything humanly possible to secure the border. That means fences, that means walls…"

Don't get me wrong, when you look at it as which candidate is better when it comes time to vote, Cruz will win a lot in my book. I still don't trust him, as he is a politician. I also get a bad taste in my mouth when a public servant has a net worth of 3.5 million, which has risen 2.3 million since he has been in office.. and no, Trump did not take money from Goldman, but he does have former Goldman people working with him which crawls all over me.

which crawls all over me.

Okay, so....we aren't as far apart as I originally thought. I do not put full faith in any politician and every day is a new proving ground. That said, Cruz is about as good as they get and certainly the best Texas has ever had. You and I both know, a Senator has no power to single-handedly make the building of a wall happen. Nor does the President. Trump and Cruz are both guilty of the occasional grandiose proclamation and inserting their feet in their respective mouths. That is my gripe with both of them. Trump more so than Cruz but it is still irresponsible.

As for Cruz's wealth, I read at the beginning of the Prez campaign, his net worth was 2.3 mil. Half of that being his home. Remember, his wife makes/made a*s loads of money. So, I'm not "too" scared off by the #s just yet. A couple of good investments could swing that much.

Both Trump and Cruz took money and they must in order to fund a campaign of that size. $20 donations from Aunt Betty aren't going to git 'er dun. I don't fault either for it. We want what is best for our State and our Nation and the people we want to lead us need that funding to be effective against the Marxist machine. Now, if they start bending to that influence....to quote Tweety Bird, so long pooty tat.

Cruz is a yuuuuge step in the right direction especially, when contrasted with Cornyn. Eew, gross...I get a gritty and foul taste in my mouth just saying his name. My focus will be on keeping Cruz, getting rid of Cornyn and replacing him with someone like Lee, Paul, Sass, Cruz or Gohmert. We're headed there and that's why Cornyn is sweating. I like that.


Thanks for the clarification and info.

Same reason the swamp exists in Washington DC.
There is a strong establishment that controls things. With people like Cornyn he played ball with the elites like McConnel. Once you do that then they help control your primary challengers.

Most people are not involved in politics on the ground level. They show up to vote (if at all) on Election Day. The real election process has already occurred though at this point in the primaries.

So to answer the other question posed, yes most voted for him on Election Day because it was him or someone even worse on the other side.

People are too relaxed and asleep in Texas. This state’s political world could change very fast just like it did in California. The Liberals know that which is why they are starting to pour money into the state.

The changing demographics and the population shift from other liberal states will likely take its toll very soon.

I've been saying this for years.
Texas is quickly not becoming "your grandfather's Texas"
Think about how many non-whites voted for Trump.
That shift of democgraphic is growing at a faster pace in Texas than those that did.
