#Resist2018 As I sit here perusing my different pages, and reading the daily articles about DC and what is going on, I see that Darrell Issa is retiring from Congress. He knows he will not be re-elected, so he is bailing like a lot of other Republicans. And now we get the "Darth Vader" from Arizona deciding that "I've been pardoned for my crimes, I may as well see if I can screw up Washington as bad as I screwed Arizona" Joe Arpaio!
Are Republicans really that foolish, or do they really think they are getting something over on the people and we're just going to sit back and let them do it. I sincerely don't get it. And I'm talking about the voting public, not the politicians, because politicians know exactly what they are doing, making millions off your dime!
I personally am fed up with their lies and conniving ways. We can no longer afford to let them do it. They are stealing our countries future and our children's future. I am running for Congress , not because I want to join that cesspool in DC, but because I hope to be a voice of the average Joe just trying to make a living.
I hope to have at least another 20 good years left in me before I go, and I would like to put that time towards a decent and clean future for myself and those coming up behind me. So much has changed in the past 50 years, and not for the good.
We are constantly at war with someone, we are constantly sticking our nose in places we don't belong, our people are dying daily through gun violence, drug overdoses, police violence because of the mindset towards minorities and militarization of our police forces. We continue because of organizations like the NRA, Fox "NEWS", the military-industrial complex that Dwight Eisenhower warned about in 1960, and most of the fringe right groups that were formerly the "Tea Party". MONEY, MONEY, MONEY. It's all about the money!
We have a lunatic in the White House, surrounded by other lunatics trying to keep him from blowing up the world, yet helping him destroy our democracy. Think about this. President Obama had massive crowds cheering him in Germany and now Germany doesn't even want Trump in their country. I don't know about you, but I've had enough! It's time to fight and in the proper way, through the ballot box. If we can stop them from stealing this upcoming election, we might stand a chance. Are you with me?
