    but kudos to the GOP for trying to make something out of nothing. without knowing this background, it would appear reid was stalling those bills without good reason. that is an excellent propaganda message prior to a national election
    Can you provide any links to the bills being anything but bipartisan, or is that something you repeat with no real knowledge of? Just curious

    You really think you can vote for Hillary Clinton and still be "for liberty?"

    Yes, though I doubt you are using the term in its proper context as most of the legislation passed by the House was not that at all.

    it was found to be partisan pap, as opposed to bi-partisan legislation, as it has been wrongly characterized by the GOP propaganda machine
    partisan republican bills that would not be favorably considered by the democrat dominated senate
    while i can't stand harry reid, he's a corrupt, partisan sack of ****, it appears his reasoning for not moving that partisan legislation to a vote makes good sense

    I'm sure all good partisan troopers are instructed and assigned that particular talking point. It's a darn good way to give irresponsible government license to do nothing but what is self serving for itself. But it's a free country and so far everybody is allowed their opinion (unless their opinion is politically incorrect.)

    My point was a more abstract one. One can vote for, let's say a candidate with a Realist foreign policy perspective, and that candidate might well support "liberty" at home. One has examine things on a candidate-to-candidate basis. If one is looking for a government role that is substantially reduced from the present role, Hillary Clinton probably won't be the preferred choice for that voter. However, that's a different matter. By later next year, the candidate pool should have become fairly clear and domestic and foreign policy details should be emerging.
