Trump's Agenda - And Response

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Of course my preference would be that the Republicans unite and pass Trumps agenda, but
until the American people vote out all of the "RINOS", that won't happen.

I'll accept him crossing the aisle to get maybe half of his agenda done, than none by sticking with the Republicans.  

Hopefully this is a wake up call to both the Republicans and the voters.

Mr. Bogart, 

I think the problem is people don’t view their representatives as RINOS. The people in Tennessee view McCain, McConnell, Boehner, and Graham as being RINOs but the folks in Tennessee can’t remove these RINOs. The folks in those states view Corker and Alexander as the RINOs and they too are helpless in removing our RINOs. 

We mistakenly believe RINOs are in everyone else’s states and if those states would elect true Republicans we could fix this problem. Nobody wants to send their RINO representatives home. We expect the other states to send their RINOs home.  

The real problem is there are very few people who believe in the free market, and if they believe in the free market they are not sitting in Washington or any state capital or your local seat of government. We mistake what we have today for the free market when in reality there hasn’t been a free market since the Fed was created and the income tax was instituted I believe in 1913. 

Unfortunately the swamp will not drained.

Protect The Dreamers - And Response

Children of illegal immigrants brought here as juveniles should be able to stay here.  When these children were brought to the U.S. they did not, willingly with any intent, violate immigration laws. They were too young to even know what immigration laws were. For many, this is the only home they have ever known. Now, as educated and otherwise law abiding young adults, it ... (click for more)
