Catching Democrats on their real-life thought process is a great show, and that’s what the Republican Senators did to them. The amendments introduced during a “Vote-a-Rama” showed the true colors of the Democratic party and should shift some potential Democrat electors out during the 2022 mid-term election.
Tom Cotton introduced an amendment that would block federal funding for schools to teach Critical Race Theory, and it passed. The radical curriculum would teach White and Black American children that all White Americans are racist and no other ethnicity can be as good as them unless the government steps in to help them. We all know that’s nonsense.
This evening the Senate PASSED my amendment to prevent federal funds from being used to promote Critical Race Theory in schools.

Americans are tired of being called racist. The picture that the media paints isn’t reality. It’s made up to make America appear racist. Very few actual racists exist. The problem is that the media, and even some citizens, continue to call everything racist, and it’s diminished the word’s meaning.
Other amendments that were passed include a ban on the Environmental Protection Agency to block fracking that was introduced by Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) which he said, “A fracking ban would weaken national security, increase global emissions, and take more money out of the pockets of hardworking Americans.”
Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) proposed an amendment to ensure that US Immigration and Customs Enforcement has sufficient budget to imprison and deport all illegal aliens convicted of a criminal violation in the United States. Several Democrats voted in favor of the proposal.
Most Democrats and Republicans stood their ground on issues like taxes. An amendment that would tax the rich got no Republican support, and a bill to give tax breaks to the rich got no Democrat support.
Most of the amendments will give fuel for the 2022 mid-term election campaign ads, and some weren’t expected to be passed in the first place. It just goes to show that when you put Democrats on the spot, they’ll show their true colors. Most Democrats aren’t as radical as the media perceives them, but some Republicans aren’t as conservative as they seem either.
In a 50-49 vote win, Senator James Lankford (R-OK) passed an amendment banning federally funded abortions. This win will be a great relief for the taxpayer and the rights of unborn children.
