America is Watching.

While some of the problem Senators and Representatives still remain in office, I think the American People sent a clear message to Washington, D.C. yesterday.  Business as usual is no longer accepted.  If you don't represent the people your job is not secure.  I was extremely pleased when I picked up the newspaper this morning and saw that conservatives had taken the House of Representatives back.  They also made some gains in the Senate and in several gubernatorial  races also.

This is a good start, but we should continue to keep the pressure on and let our representatives know that the American voting public has been awakened and will remain awake until we get this country back on track.

I heard some pleasing rhetoric on getting rid of earmarks this morning.  I believe this is one of the best things we can do to restore fiscal responsibility to the U. S.   We were able to defeat a life long ear mark expert in Solomon Ortiz, but Valley voters still kept the totally incompetent Ruben Hinojosa in office.  If we get rid of ear marks, Hinojosa will not have anything to vote for and will be exposed as the pawn of the socialist wing of the Democrat party.  I can't think of one piece of legislation he sponsored himself.  I'll be willing to bet he can't read well enough to understand the legislation he has voted for in the past. He really doesn't care what a bill says as long as it contains earmarks that will put money in his pocket.  He refuses to address his constituency in Town Hall meetings, and when written to he responds with the typical Milquetoast form letters used by  "ear mark" politicians.

We will be watching closely Mr. Hinojosa.  I extend this message to the newly elected representatives from all parties.  The American people will continue to be actively involved until we regain control from the noisy, but relatively small special interests who are usually the feature of the complicit press and electronic media.  Keep the heat turned up.  We still have a big job to do.  Thanks to all of you who joined the fight to restore America to her former greatness as " nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

A little government and a little luck are necessary in life, but only a fool trusts either of them.

  1. Hi Pappy,
    I haven't stopped by here in awhile but I knew it would be a great day for you. :)
    I've read your last few posts and as always it's been good reading.
    I'm away at the present with my two little granddaughters and any moment grandson number one should be making an entrance.
    Hope all is well for you.
    God Bless America.

  2. Hi Carletta, Good to see your name and profile picture pop up again. I am guardedly happy. The real test will be what the new electees are able to do with their new offices. I know you are excited about a new grandson. You will have to post pictures as soon as you can. Pappy
