NC Republicans may reject Sen. Richard Burr’s (R-NC) reelection

NC Republican should be made aware of Sen. Richard Burr’s voting record before the 2016 GOP Primary vote; especially, inasmuch as Sen. Richard Burr refuses North Carolinians to see his and other candidates’ opinion views in a TV debate.  Here are a few questionable votes Conservatives may require an answer on from Sen. Richard Burr. 


On October 6, 2011, Sen Richard Burr voted ‘YEA’ with Sen. Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats “On the Decision of the Chair “(Shall the Decision of the Chair Stand as the Judgment of the Senate)” allowing Sen. Reid to allow a simple majority vote as final, often called a ‘Nuclear’ vote, rather than requiring a 60 vote to continue with legislation http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=112&session=1&vote=00157.


On December 1, 2011, the US Senate voted 93-7 to approve a defense authorization bill that includes a provision which not only repeals the military law on sodomy, it also repeals the military ban on sex with animals--or bestiality. 

Earlier, there was a military law on sodomy as ban on sex with animals--or bestiality.  No more. 

December 1, 2011, Sen. Richard Burr voted ‘YEA’ to remove that military law.  It is now legal in the military to have sex with animals http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=112&session=1&vote=00218.


“An original bill to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2012 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes”  http://cnsnews.com/news/article/senate-approves-bill-legalizes-sodomy-and-bestiality-us-military?mid=5430.


June 11, 2013, Sen. Burr voted ‘YEA’ on (Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act); more ‘illegal’ immigration.

On September 8, 2014, and after a SCOTUS decision removed the limited funding in elections, and on a Cloture Vote, Sen. Burr voted ‘YEA’ with Sen.

Finally, it is in January news report by the Associated Press (AP) that Sen. Richard Burr told some of his supporters that he would vote for liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders for President before he would vote for Republican Ted Cruz http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/01/22/report-gop-sen-said-he-would-vote-sanders-over-cruz-demands-retraction/.


North Carolinians deserve a TV debate to see and hear qualified candidates as what and how they may express themselves on the issues.
