Hazlewood And Wamp Is The Ticket

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Well, I've had enough and can't wait to vote on Thursday. 

I've had some group from Nashville tell me that Tommy Crangle is best.  But he's the one who insults me for being an independent voter and not some Tea Party loyalist.  I've never heard him talk about his kids or grandkids in public schools in the district like Mrs. Hazlewood.

I've heard that Chuck Fleischmann is some great man of faith by Mike Huckabee, a rich TV star wanting to be president. Chuck Fleischmann has also put my family down for having "worse than cooties" in not being a pure Tea Party Republican.  I've heard Weston Wamp promise to get things done.

I'm not sure who I despise most. The really "important" Barack Obama who knows it all or the Tea Party, far-right who is just as bad. 

My family is voting for Weston Wamp for Congress and Patsy Hazlewood for  state represenative.
