"John Sullivan is an empty suit, a party hack who votes "the party line" every time upon command. He has nothing but contempt for the conservative Republican principles of limited constitutional government, separation of powers, checks and balances, sound money, and prudential fiscal and monetary restraint.
By his shameful voting record Sullivan has demonstrated his support for the totalitarian doctrines of preventative war (aggressive invasion of nations without formal Congressional declaration as mandated by the United States Constitution and condemned at the Nuremberg Tribunals after WWII), indefinite imprisonment, rendition, torture of people alleged to be "suspects" (an undefined and nebulous category), and assassination of American citizens without charge, arrest, trial, or conviction in a court of law.
He has voted for every tyrannical piece of legislation which comes across his desk, from the USA Patriot Act (which has gutted the Fourth and Fifth Amendment protection of privacy and due process), the draconian TSA with their invasive porn-scanners and sexual abusive groping of passengers at the nation's airports, and the recent 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) authorizing the military to arrest and detain indefinitely American citizens without charge or legal counsel.
Sullivan has voted for TARP and every other Wall Street big bank bailout/subsidy, voted for every increase in the National Debt ceiling, every piece of elite special-interest class legislation that enhances the corporatist welfare-warfare state enabled by the Federal Reserve banking cartel.
In 1944, in the midst of World War II, the heroic conservative journalist John T. Flynn wrote:
“The test of fascism is not one’s rage against the Italian and German war lords. The test is how many of the essential principles of fascism do you accept and to what extent are you prepared to apply those fascist ideas to American social and economic life? When you can put your finger on the men or the groups that urge for America the debt-supported state, the autarchial corporative state, the state bent on the socialization of investment and the bureaucratic government of industry and society, the establishment of the institution of militarism as the great glamorous public-works project of the nation and the institution of imperialism under which it proposes to regulate and rule the world and, along with this, proposes to alter the forms of our government to approach as closely as possible the unrestrained, absolute government. Then you will know you have located the authentic fascist.”
Look no farther than John Sullivan. You will have found your authentic fascist and the shame of Oklahoma."
