America is on the way down spiraling out of control and the people who are supposed to be in charge, THE PEOPLE, are letting it happen. Voter turn out in Maryland was abysmal and two members of Congress from other states who should be in the old age home have been reelected.
Thad Cochran won his runoff election by soliciting votes from Democrats. You read that right, a Republican appealed to Democrats (Mississippi has an open election) to help him win reelection. There is no way this buffoon would have won if he relied on constituents in his party. This RINO behavior is why there was a big push to get rid of him. The uneducated low information morons in the state answered his call and helped him out. Of course another worthless POS, John McCain, showed up to campaign for him.
Cochran is everything the TEA Party opposes and with the help of Democrats he was reelected. Remember this in the general election Republicans. Vote for the other guy. You see, Democrats supported Cochran and helped him in the primary but they will vote Democrat in the general election. If you want to show Thad how much you appreciate him vote Democrat. Screw taking the Senate back if it means keeping this puke. The next time people tell you we have a two party system remind them of this race. There is no difference between the two.
The ethically challenged Rangel who is in his 80s and has been in Congress for 44 years was reelected. It appears as if the people in his district are OK with his criminal activity and ethical challenges. He has been abusing the system for decades and takes advantage of every perk there is. He loves living off your hard earned money.
He is a slick talking mac daddy who shows that you can take the man out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of the man.
America is full of people who can’t pour water out of a bucket if the directions are written on the bottom. They pull levers based on name recognition and the letter next to the name (and this goes for both parties). They all think about what the guy promised to give them rather than what is best for the country.
Face it, the seat Rangel holds would still be Democrat based on the district. If the district had voted in a younger person who has not lived on government welfare (that is what a lifetime job in Congress is) they still would have had a Democrat in the seat. But they chose a guy who has committed illegal acts that resulted in his censure but would have certainly landed the rest of us in jail. He is a liar and a criminal and the people in his district still voted him back in office.
The only thing working in our favor is the age of these folks. Rangel and Cochran are in their 80s so the Grim Reaper will be visiting them soon.
When he gets there he can take McCain, Mikulski, and the rest of the lifers with him.
Too harsh? I think not. The only way to get rid of them is for them to die off so just think of it as G-d casting a ballot on the issue…
We are in a serious decline and we will be in serious trouble as long as idiots are allowed to vote and criminals are allowed to hold office.
Never surrender, never submit.
