People have lost their fervor for this country because of people like Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX). She astounds us with her continuous chorus of racism but does nothing to stop it. She and others in the democrat party are the reason this country is on a permanent downward trend. Have they done anything positive in the past fifty years to help this country? The answer is clearly no. The vitriolic fanning of the flames has got to stop and stop now. The democrat party has nothing new to offer. Their only path to victory is to cast aspersions upon those among us that do care about this country. The leadership in this country has failed us.
Recently, Rep. Lee marked the 400th day of the GOP do nothing congress. She said “Americans cannot afford another year of a Republican Congress that fails to focus on jobs, refuses to strengthen our middle class, and tries to end Medicare guarantee.” None of the accusations are true. The Republican controlled House has passed nearly 30 common sense jobs bills since regaining control of Congress in 2010. All of the bills are stalled in the Senate by Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). Rep. Lee only has to look to the democrats in the Senate to see where the problem lies, but she is blinded by her own agenda. Time and time again President Obama has proposed jobs bills that do nothing but increase the deficit and his past history in this area have been a total failure in terms of job creation.
Recently it was reported that $60 million in earmarks went to college’s that employed relatives of lawmakers. Included was $5.25 million that was directed to Rep. Lee’s husband while he was vice president of student affairs and vice chancellor at the University of Houston. Even though she was just one of many, it highlights the improprieties that occur with regularity in Congress and must be stopped. In another questionable statement Rep. Lee admonished Pepsi for an ad that ran during the super bowl last year. At that time she said that the ad was “Insulting to woman of all colors”.
We have a serious problem in this country. In the past Rep. Lee has stooped to the level of nonsense that can only come from a democrat. On February 10th Rep. Lee had the temerity to say “Republican’s want to take away the essence of all religious faith”, yet is it her hero President Obama who wants to scrap Article 1 of the Bill of Rights that says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”.
Is this the essence of the people that we want running our government? The democrats have gone out of their way to accuse republicans of racism. Martin Luther King said “I look for the day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character”. When we decide who is most qualified we should look for those that have the ability to bring people together and not divide them. Race bating does not bring people together and does everything to divide us. We have to make sure they make the right choices for those of us that they represent. We do not want those among us that are running for their own personal agenda. It is time to replace those that have taken us and government for granted and elect a new breed of politician to deliver this country back to where we once were. The democrats have done nothing but take a dependent approach to the problems facing this country. It is time for wholesale change and no stone should be unturned to find and elect people that truly care about America.
