Meet Kesha Rogers …


running against David Alameel for the Democratic seat who needs to replace Republican and Rep. John Cornyn

Reminder for DEMs … Kesha Rogers is an American political activist in the Lyndon LaRouche Youth Movement …  I have to say  that constituents deserve full disclose if a candidate is running for a Public Servant position … Nativegrl77

On her campaign website, Rogers says she wants to restore the JFK-FDR legacy in Texas.  That’s great, a sign of progress, right?  Think again.  Rogers, who is a two-time congressional nominee, is not your typical Democratic candidate, and not necessarily the type of candidate the Democrats’ progressive, pro-Obama constituency would want to vote for if they read the fine print.  And they’d better read the fine print.

You see, Kesha Rogers is a follower of Lyndon LaRouche, who is, well, a fringe political cult leader of sorts.  LaRouche is a left-wing Marxist-turned-right-wing conspiracy theorist, and believes in off-the-wall policies like space colonization, a quarantine for everyone with AIDS, and opposition to abortion and gay rights.

And LaRouche, himself a former perennial presidential candidate, has been accused of espousing fascist, racist and anti-Semitic views.  As the late Manning Marable once said, “LaRouche appeals to fear, hatred and ignorance. He seeks to exploit and exacerbate the anxieties and frustrations of Americans by offering an array of scapegoats and enemies: Jews, Zionists, international bankers, blacks, labor unions-much the way Hitler did in Germany.”

Kesha Rogers

Not running for political office these days, LaRouche, 91 years old, has his minions on the ballot—people such as Kesha Rogers.  Like other LaRouche supporters, Rogers has compared President Obama to Hitler, complete with the mustache, and likened Obamacare to the policies of Nazi Germany. And she wants to impeach him, too.

Meet Brad Hutto …


running against Lindsay Graham … who we all know but need some reminders …

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) introduced a bill in November of 2013, that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy in the United States unless the woman is a victim of rape or incest or her life is in danger. He also stated, “Nothing bad is going to happen,” Graham said. “Good things will happen. Babies will be born that wouldn’t have made it otherwise, and only God knows who they will grow up to be.”

 I don’t know about you but women should be treated just like men … as individuals ! Instead the GOP continues to put us all in one basket claim we are too emotional and then tell us what is good for us … #Midterm2014Matters it is time for a change … Nativegrl77

 

 

Brad Hutto is running for the United States Senate because Washington DC is broken.

Congress doesn’t listen to the voters anymore. Big money, powerful special interest groups, and extremist agendas are blocking progress. Brad will reject the culture that makes Washington DC dysfunctional and will take South Carolina values to Capitol Hill.

Brad is a problem solver who will work with both sides to get Congress working for us again. Rather than appearing on the Sunday talk shows and manufacturing stunts to make the national news, Brad believes the people back home should be the highest priority for a Senator representing South Carolina.

It’s time for our allies abroad to take more responsibility for their own security. He disagrees with our current Senator, Lindsey Graham, who believes the United States should be the policeman for the world. Instead Brad realizes that we should do more to improve our own infrastructure and create jobs here. Brad would make improving education a national priority so our country doesn’t slip further behind the rest of the world. He thinks South Carolinians deserve a US Senator who cares about their concerns and about where they live. Brad understands what it’s like to live, work and raise a family right here in South Carolina.

Jobs – Brad has a long history of fighting for jobs and small businesses. He received a perfect score of 100% from the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce for his hard work and leadership for creating jobs. As our Senator, he will roll up his sleeves on day one to help bring good paying jobs with benefits here in South Carolina. Instead of obsessing over international politics, Brad will work to ensure that South Carolina workers are properly trained and that the business environment is attractive for job creators. He will work to restore and improve the state’s crumbling infrastructure and to rebuild failing schools in the state’s rural areas.

Valuing Work – All able-bodied Americans should work, and their hard work should be rewarded. Too many people who work full time to support their family have to rely on food stamps to put food on their tables. Brad supports raising the minimum wage to $10.10, getting people off of food stamps and once again honoring hard work in this country. Brad will stand up for working families.

Education – Brad understands how important education is to improving the lives of South Carolinians. He will fight to ensure South Carolina gets its fair share of national funding and help keep state leaders focused like a laser beam on our schools. He knows that without a properly educated and trained work force, businesses looking to relocate will simply go someplace else.

Fiscal Discipline – Just like families all over America are doing, Brad believes it’s time for Congress to tighten their belts, spend less and cut waste. He believes we should better prioritize spending to reflect the real needs our country faces within its own borders. Brad will fight any attempt to balance the budget on the backs of senior citizens who have already made huge sacrifices for our country. He will oppose any attempt to harm Medicare and Social Security.

Health Care – Brad wants to fix the Affordable Care Act and allow everyone to keep or obtain a plan that best suits their families’ needs. He will not support legislation that will put the insurance companies back in charge or return us to a time when insurance could be denied for pre-existing conditions and families could go bankrupt because of lifetime caps.

Environment – As an avid outdoorsman and sportsman, Brad knows that we must do more to protect our natural resources. From the mountains to the lakes, to the coast, South Carolina is blessed with a unique beauty that generates tourism and creates jobs. Brad will fight against those who would do harm for their own short term goals.

Energy – Brad will continue to lead efforts to invest in alternative forms of energy like solar, wind and gas. We can’t continue to rely on foreign countries to supply our energy.

Women’s Health – Government should not dictate health decisions for women in this country. He believes women should be empowered to consult with their families, healthcare providers, and religious advisors to make reproductive health decisions. Women do not need Washington politicians like Lindsey Graham telling them what to do.

Liberty and Justice for All – Everyone should have an equal chance to obtain happiness and fulfill the American Dream. Brad opposes efforts to restrict basic freedoms. Liberty to share love and life is an inherent right, and this includes the right to marry the person that you choose. He believes that America is strongest when everyone is free, respected and valued.

Tuesday: Air Quality- Important at Every Age
Girl on Swing Two of the most common pollutants in the U.S. are ozone, or smog, and particle pollution.  They can be harmful to the health of hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. You could be one of them, especially if you’re very young, an older American, or otherwise on the list below. More


Poor air quality can pose health concerns to children, older adults, and those with certain kinds of health issues; but even healthy young adults can be adversely affected by polluted air. Depending on the air quality and your level of sensitivity, staying indoors may sometimes help to alleviate symptoms.

Wednesday: Air Quality & Your Health

Meet Vivian Figures


running against Rep.Jeff Sessions

 

Vivian began her political career in 1984 when she ran as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in which capacity she has served for six consecutive times, 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2004. In 1993, Ms. Figures was elected to a four-year term on the Mobile City Council, attaining the status of the “only council member in Mobile’s history to hold a perfect attendance record.” Due to the untimely death of her husband, Michael A. Figures, she was later elected in the 1997 general election by an 87% victory to the Alabama State Senate to serve the remainder of his term. The victory made her the first African-American woman to be elected to the Senate from Mobile County and the second one in the state of Alabama. Her husband was the first African-American from Mobile County to be elected to the post in 1978 and he was elected overwhelmingly by his Senate cohorts as President Pro Tempore in 1995.  She was re-elected in 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010.

In 2008, she became Alabama’s first African American woman to become the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate. Although this was her first statewide run for public office, she garnered 37 percent of the vote while President Barack Obama had 39 percent.

As Senator, she played a major role in helping to author legislation for school personnel background checks for both public and private schools to make children safer. Because of her sponsorship and passage of the Alabama Clean Indoor Act, she was awarded the National Tobacco Award from the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and the Outstanding Advocate Award from the American Heart Association. Senator Figures continues to work for a Smoke-Free Alabama.

Resources : From her website

I did a regular search and found that the NRA rates her 67% and while she is in a red state she backs education and most issues that any left of center does but not much information on reproductive rights with the exception of minors. I am not a one issue voter but admit to wanting to read a lot more about where she stood on reproductive rights. So, unless you have a better democratic candidate choice, she looks good on paper but as always … do your research and vote Jeff Sessions out of office !!!!

Meet thom tillis


is running against Kay Hagan

I am not a one issue voter yet knowing that the GOP and their official candidates have it out for emotional women who need to ALL opt out of abortions  is beyond offensive.  If you go to any conservative website, specifically candidates for Congress you may find that the “family values” platform is top of their list. This pisses me off, but after finding out not only were there some scandalous behavior in his own camp, The GOP want less government run for office  will receive great government health care and  $175K per year.  The notion that Republicans obviously want women to take a few steps backward in time is something  ALL voters should be concerned about … We are all individuals and the respect for freedom and liberty is great as long as it’s on their terms not for the workers ~~ That do as we say NOT as we do is unacceptable for any so-called Public Servant … anyway … I read through his stance on the issues he feels are important and no one wants to take guns away from anyone … We need better background checks for a safer country and it’s too bad mr tillis’s party of no still engages in fear mongering to get a vote

Honored to earn the endorsement of National Right to Life. An excerpt of the release is below. If you’d like to join our faith and family coalition,

“Thom Tillis has been an outspoken leader in the fight to protect innocent human life in North Carolina, and he is the only candidate with a proven record of leadership who can defeat pro-abortion Sen. Kay Hagan this fall,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.

Under his leadership as Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives, the legislature passed a number of measures protecting unborn children and their mothers including:

Women’s Right to Know Act (Speaker Tillis led the effort to override Governor Perdue’s veto of the measure)

• Ethen’s Law recognizing unborn children as victims of violent crime

• Prohibiting North Carolina taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for abortion or to pay for insurance coverage for abortion

• Health & Safety Law – a 2013 omnibus pro-life bill that included language extending conscience protections to health care providers who oppose abortion, opting North Carolina out of abortion coverage in the federal health care exchange, prohibiting sex-selection abortions, prohibiting abortion from being covered in city and county health care plans, banning web-cam abortions, and issuing regulations of abortion clinics.

In contrast, since being elected to the U.S. Senate, Kay Hagan voted for the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” – better known as Obamacare – which provides government funding for insurance plans that pay for abortion-on-demand, and will lead to the rationing of lifesaving medical treatments. Earlier this year, Hagan voted against a measure that would have protected the religious liberties of employers by protecting them from being forced to purchase health plans that cover drugs and procedures to which they have religious or moral objections.

“Speaker Thom Tillis has earned the support of all pro-life voters and he is the candidate who can defeat Kay Hagan this November,” said David N. O’Steen, Ph.D., National Right to Life executive director. “Why would any pro-lifer cast their ballot for anyone besides Thom Tillis?”

 so…  mr. tillis says, this is where he stands on the issues …

Under the Obama Administration, big government handouts and bailouts have increased while millions of Americans have lost their jobs. Thom knows that big government doesn’t create jobs—the private sector does. Government has simply become too big, too expensive, and too intrusive in our lives and businesses. In the Senate, Thom will work to shrink the size of our federal government to its core Constitutional role so the private sector can thrive. – See more at: http://thomtillis.com/meet-thom/#sthash.RuheMBTo.dpuf

Thom believes the traditional family is the bedrock of America’s culture and a driver of our nation’s well being. Thom is committed to defending the institution of the traditional family. He believes that marriage is between one man and one woman and believes in protecting the rights of the unborn. Thom believes all life is sacred and as Speaker, he promoted pro-life policies and helped reverse the pro-abortion state policies Democrats had put in place for decades. In the Senate, Thom will promote a culture of life and he will champion the appointment of qualified pro-life judges. – See more at: http://thomtillis.com/meet-thom/#sthash.RuheMBTo.dpuf

 

After a long career in private business, balancing budgets is not just theory; it’s what he does. As the leader of the reform movement that took over the North Carolina legislature, Thom Tillis led the passing of a balanced budget every year he’s been Speaker. Because of these accomplishments, North Carolina has seen a reduction in state debt. In the Senate, Thom will be a stalwart conservative reformer, pushing at every opportunity for the tough decisions it will take to balance the budget every year by cutting spending, and reducing our outrageous $17 trillion national debt. Thom believes in the “Cut, Cap, and Balance” approach – cut spending now, cap spending in the future, and require a balanced budget every year.

 

ObamaCare is a cancer on our national economy and it threatens the quality of every American’s health care. It is paralyzing business expansion, displacing families from the health coverage they have now, raising costs, and threatening the federal treasury for all future years. ObamaCare is ridden with policies that are bad for families, bad for seniors, bad for businesses, and bad for the economy. Thom will fight in the Senate for full repeal of ObamaCare, for defunding ObamaCare, and he will work to implement private sector solutions to reduce healthcare costs for North Carolinians.

- See more at: http://thomtillis.com/meet-thom/#sthash.RuheMBTo.dpuf

 

Our porous border threatens our national security and undermines our rule of law. Thom believes we must provide border patrol agents with the additional resources, personnel, and technology needed to effectually protect us and keep out those who want to do us harm, those who are transporting narcotics, and those who would break our laws. Thom opposes amnesty and he believes Congress should solve our border security crisis now – before it even debates any other changes to our immigration laws.

 

North Carolina families and businesses are suffering greatly as a result of costly and excessive federal government regulation. These unnecessary regulations drive up the cost of everyday purchases such as groceries and cripple small businesses with additional costs and uncontrollable red tape. As a businessman who led the reform movement that swept the North Carolina Capitol, Thom has made regulatory reform his signature crusade. As a result, the state legislature recently passed an extensive regulatory overhaul measure that will free North Carolina businesses of numerous government regulations that hinder economic growth and job creation. In Washington, Thom will continue his fight for regulatory reform to get our oppressive government out of our families and small businesses.

- See more at: http://thomtillis.com/meet-thom/#sthash.RuheMBTo.dpuf

 

Senator Kay Hagan and many like her in Washington are pushing legislation that threatens our constitutional freedom to keep and bear arms and Thom knows now it’s more important than ever that North Carolinians have a strong voice in the Senate to defend our 2nd Amendment rights. In the state legislature, Thom has fought to protect 2nd Amendment rights for law-abiding citizens and pushed to increase criminal penalties for those who don’t. Thom will oppose any gun or ammunition ban in the U.S. Senate and he will fight any effort to require federal permission for firearm transfers between friends and relatives. The Second Amendment is a vital protection for an honest citizenry and it must be defended.

 

As a lifelong businessman, Thom Tillis knows that in order to grow the economy, we must create an environment where businesses can flourish and create jobs. Government needs to get out of the way, so that entrepreneurs and innovators can thrive. Thom’s effort to lead a conservative reform movement to take over the North Carolina legislature helped make our state one of the best places to create new jobs in America.

 

Thom Tillis believes we must restore the original intention of the Constitution and redirect the federal government toward the purposes our founding fathers intended. Government is too big, regulation is too comprehensive, and our liberty is being threatened daily. Thom will steadfastly defend our liberties and fight government over-reach every day. Thom knows that if we do not make a stand now, our grandchildren will live in a nation we would not recognize. The time to act is now for every American who loves freedom.

 

North Carolina agribusinesses are being stifled by federal regulations that threaten their livelihood. As agriculture exports increase, Thom believes we must promote policies that make trade with other nations free and efficient in order to stimulate our economy and allow North Carolina farmers and ranchers to expand their businesses.

In Washington, Thom will continue his fight for regulatory reform to get our oppressive government out of our families and small businesses.
In the state legislature, Thom led a massive tax reform effort that lowered personal income tax for every single North Carolinian and cut business taxes by more than $2.4 billion over the next five years. Thom helped eliminate the existing three-tiered tax bracket system and cut the income tax rate in North Carolina down to a flat, fair 5.8% for 2014 and 5.75% for 2015. In 2011, Thom led the effort to cut taxes by $1.5 billion by allowing Kay Hagan’s tax increases to expire.
