Florida Sen. Rubio Votes Against Bill of Rights.

By Tom Rhodes, 12/1/2012

No thanks to Republican Statist Sen. Marco Rubio, who again voted against individual rights and for more government power. Why Republicans think that their party is the party of conservative principles and freedoms, when their leaders continue to prove they have no principles, and only believe in their and their buddies increased power.

Senate Amendment 3018 was create to clarify provisions in to S. 3254 - National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013. The purpose of this amendment is to clarify that an authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States.

Republican Statist Marco Rubio has clearly rejected the ideas of the TEA Party that got him elected. He voted against protecting your right to Habeas Corpus and a Jury Trial.

According to the Senate Record, including Rubio the following Republicans also voted against the Bill of Rights

Ayotte (R-NH)
Brown (R-MA)
Burr (R-NC)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coats (R-IN)
Cochran (R-MS)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Grassley (R-IA)
Hatch (R-UT)
Hutchison (R-TX)
Isakson (R-GA)
Johanns (R-NE)
Johnson (R-WI)
Kyl (R-AZ)
Lugar (R-IN)
McConnell (R-KY)
Portman (R-OH)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sessions (R-AL)
Shelby (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD)
Toomey (R-PA)
Vitter (R-LA)
Wicker (R-MS)

No wonder the GOP had their ass handed to them last month.
