Response to Denver Post Editorial that Cruz "Fillibuster" was an Epic Fail

My "Tea Party" response to the Denver Post editorial calling the Cruz filibuster-type speech an "epic" failure (

"Dear Openforum:

As a Colorado native and proud 1960's Denver Post "paperboy," I was saddened, though not surprised, to see my first employer marginalize Ted Cruz and the T(axed) E(nough) A(lready) Party movement that elected him.

Rather than do your job by reminding Americans across the nation about increased health premiums, reduced health choices, lost full-time jobs, and exceptions for the president and staff, Congress and staff, unions and, now, employers with the stroke of a presidential pen, I'll simply say this:

Senator Cruz's petition now has over 1.9 million signatures, and counting. The national organization Tea Party Patriots, one of many and started in a kitchen in 2009, has 1.2 million "likes" on its Facebook page, and counting. The historic 2010 Republican state and national landslide was fueled by this energy and commitment.

2014 elections are around the corner. Democrats, get ready. Republicans, pay attention. We're not going away.

Wilma, you are so right.  Much to do.  Now that the House is about to pass another CR, this one to delay Obamacare for a year, insure the military gets paid in the event of a shutdown, and returning the CR end date to 12/15 (Senate trimmed it back to 11/15), we need to be calling our Senators again.  I will post a link from Tea Party Patriots on FB and ATP to give people easy access to the info they need.

I spent some time on Jimmy's show talking about the DP article and other issues.  He gives me such hope for the future.  Young conservatives are bright and motivated.

It is awesome all you do for the cause.  Thank you!

Thank you, Randy, for the open forum message and the link to that DP dribble.  I am still wading through some of the comments that followed the item in the DP.


Good thing I could listen to Pastor Rafael Cruz's comments on the Jimmy Sengenberger radio program on 710 KNUS.  I thought that was appropriate background comments to the reading.


Time for everyone to be busy.  There is much to do on so many levels.
