Leave it to a local socialist to get this horribly wrong

I was reading The Herald's opinion page online and about puked when I saw the headline.
Etheridge stands for Johnston County values
. That is good to know, considering that I see very few values that he stands for that are Johnston County values. When he voted correctly on a bill (I think just one that I am aware of), I praised him in this very blog. When he has attempted to waste billions of our tax dollars on unConstitutional measures, I have said so.

Here is the rest of the excrement spewed by a local Democrat official:
The writer of the letter challenging Congressman Bob Etheridge's support for Johnston County values fails to mention that the congressman has stood consistently for those values and for programs that benefit our citizens.

He supported legislation that would require greater fiscal responsibility from the federal government and that would help to stem the outrageous deficit being left for our grandchildren by this administration. Bob Etheridge strongly supported passage of an increase in the minimum wage urgently needed by many of our hardworking citizens. He has proposed and supported legislation that would make this country more energy-independent by using alternative sources of energy and advances in technology that would create much-needed new jobs. And Bob Etheridge has supported legislation that would build a partnership of state and federal resources to assist local education systems with the building of enough new schools to accommodate rapid growth.

The letter also had a paragraph scolding the writer to whom she refers as being a Republican Party officer and hack, yadda, yadda, yadda. As if that is anything foreign to Democrats.

Sorry, but this is nothing more than a propaganda piece for the resident Democrat Congressman. There is translation needed in this piece. I will do some of it for you below by pasting the same text with my translation along with it.

-----------
Etheridge stands for Johnston County values
Democrat translation: He stands for liberal, Democrat values and that is how everyone should vote. If you don't, you are a retard.

The writer of the letter challenging Congressman Bob Etheridge's support for Johnston County values fails to mention that the congressman has stood consistently for those values and for programs that benefit our citizens.
Democrat translation: He has stood to take money away from those who are productive members of society and give it to those who wish to suckle off the government teat with no accountability or requirement of renumeration or even labor.

He supported legislation that would require greater fiscal responsibility from the federal government and that would help to stem the outrageous deficit being left for our grandchildren by this administration.
Democrat translation: Bush sucks. Forget that Clinton spent a lot of money too and that our Democrats in Congress supported the spending. We don't want the facts to stand in the way.

Bob Etheridge strongly supported passage of an increase in the minimum wage urgently needed by many of our hardworking citizens.
Democrat translation: Forget the fact that nobody is really supporting a family on minimum wage. We like the fact that labor unions have wage contracts that are indexed to the minimum wage and labor unions are huge Democrat supporters. It may be true that only underachieving losers will remain in minimum wage jobs, but we like to control business and industry. Obviously, evil corporations are to blame for the low wages. We may have unprecedented growth at the current minimum wage and nobody at McDonald's starts out at that lowest wage because the market dictates otherwise. We as Democrats do not trust evil corporations to treat workers fairly. We will not let the fact that the majority of businesses that pay minimum wage are small, family owned companies that may be struggling to make ends meet and that workers may be laid off as a result of a higher wage scale. That does not matter, since we feel good about sincerely pretending to care.

He has proposed and supported legislation that would make this country more energy-independent by using alternative sources of energy and advances in technology that would create much-needed new jobs.
Democrat translation: He has no scientific background, but we as Democrats feel really good about appearing to actually do something. We realize that Al Gore is a crackpot who is pushing junk science as fact. We buy into it anyway, since it gives us a way to take more money away from evil corporations and the American tax payers. This is a way of exerting more control over everyone's lives, property, and help keep us in power by looking like we actually care.

And Bob Etheridge has supported legislation that would build a partnership of state and federal resources to assist local education systems with the building of enough new schools to accommodate rapid growth.
Democrat translation: We don't care that the Constitution does not allow the federal government to spend money on education. A previous paragraph may have just praised Etheridge for stemming the tide of government spending, but this increase in government spending is for a good cause. After all, what better cause is there than being "for the children"? Everybody should realize that a government school system is not really an indoctrination system or really a part of the Communist Manifesto. If you believe that they are, you must be for freedom, actual accountability for tax money being spent, and must be some whack job. You can not possibly think that you would know how to better raise and educate your own children than a bloated bureaucracy that wields taxation power over you to teach values that contradict your own.

The letter criticizing Congressman Bob Etheridge also fails to note that the writer, Mark Otto, is communications director for the 2nd District Committee of the N.C. Republican Party. Also, his letter is almost identical to those you will find being sent by Republicans across the country to local newspapers challenging elected Democratic representatives.
Democrat translation: Forget that I am a hypocrite for doing the same thing.

PATRICIA K. BRANCH Third Vice Chair Johnston County Democratic Party
Democrat translation: I am a shill for the Democrats and proud of it.

why would someone vote for a person standing there with a gun in his hand.......someone from selma also...............

Maybe because he is a "straight shooter", which is sorely needed politics today. This does not even account for the strong stance that the picture shows towards the values that made America great. 1. God (see hat). 2. Guns (the ability to defend one's self, taking personal responsibility, and fighting off tyrrany), and 3. Family (see wedding band visible in picture).

Liberals only see what they want to see in that picture.

As far as voting for someone from Selma...well...only people from Selma can run for office in Selma...DUH!!

By the way, try leaving a name instead of hiding behind anonymous comments and being cowardly. Perhaps I will change how things are allowed for comments. A new rule, maybe...no accepting responsibility for your words, no comments allowed to stay.
