*** I have a much bigger and better thread than this in the works. I'm thinking about starting a thread that will serve as a way to form a rough draft and to add/polish ideas. I'm considering giving it 2-3 sub threads so that everything will be organized and presentable. I will need alot of help though because I rely on my mobile phone internet even more than when I made this thread a year ago.***
After a long slow process I have finally finalized my list to the best of my ability. One of my reasons for creating this list is to see what politicians we can support in future elections (for their current office or President, etc) and to see who is actually on our side and who we need to work to remove from office (all politicians not on this list need to be removed from office. Of course we also need to pay attention to those on the list, since they can backstab us at any time. This list is very short and we need to work to grow it in future elections.
Drum roll please....
Out of 100 Senators there are only TWO that we can trust:
Rand Paul (R-Kentucky)
Mike Lee (R-Utah).
The filters were: PATRIOT ACT, The Bailout, TARP, Obamacare, Federal Reserve, the Debt Ceiling vote (08/02/11) and National Defense Authorization Act (vote was December 1st).
Out of 435 members of the House of Representatives there are only THREE that we can trust. They are:
Ron Paul (R-Texas)
Justin Amash (R-Michigan)
Walter Jones (R-North Carolina)
The filters were: PATRIOT ACT, The Bailout, TARP, Obamacare, Federal Reserve, the Debt Ceiling vote (08/02/11) and National Defense Authorization Act (House voted in May).
Out of 50 Governors there are only FOUR that we can trust:
Robert J. Bentley (R-Ala)
Butch Otter (R-ID)
Jack Dalrymple (R-ND)
Dennis Daugaard (R-SD)
The filtering for Governors was largely arbitrary, I tried to eliminate them on issues similar to the filters I used on Senators and Representatives and whether they have acted like big government politicians or not.
Please let me know if you feel this list is incomplete. Please give reasons why said politician should be included or removed.
P.S. I know the left-right paradigm is a sham, but I find it interesting that ALL are Republicans.
