Doc Gillenwater is running for Mel Watt’s seat  in the 12th Congressional District.  Please visit his website to learn more about his positions on the issues and find out how you can support his campaign.

Dr. James Taylor is running against Howard Coble in the 6th Congressional District.  He will be holding an event Friday evening, January 29th, in Liberty. UPDATE: The Jan. 29th event is postponed, due to the probability of inclement weather, probably to be rescheduled Feb 12.  I’ll let you know when I get details.  I really don’t know anything about him, but it can’t hurt to listen to what he has to say and see what you think!

Brad Miller and Mel Watt STILL in Favor of Health Care Takeover

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:08 pm by gsoteapartygirl

Despite the unlocking of the Democrat stranglehold on the Senate, it is still critical that Brad Miller and Mel Watt understand that NC DOES NOT WANT this health care “reform”.  Contact Mel Watt and Brad Miller and let them know that NC does not want and cannot afford this health care “reform” package they are attempting to shove down our throats. 

Ok.  I just tossed this off, but here’s an idea to get you started:

Dear Congressman Watt/Congressman Miller,

I hope you have been watching the recent election in Massachusetts and understand the meaning of Scott Brown’s victory.
He won by a healthy margin in a state that has, until just now, been considered overwelmingly liberal and a Democratic “lock”.
Scott Brown won by opposing a government takeover of health care (i.e. the “reform” package that you have been supporting) as well as
by promoting the idea that we must have the transparency and openness in government that Barack Obama pledged as a keystone of his campaign.

If you do not, or choose not to, understand what just happened in Massachusetts, come November you will see yourself in need of a new job!

Sincerely,
Your constituent

A Letter to Kay Hagan

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:53 am by gsoteapartygirl

Dear Senator Hagan,

I am very troubled with the way that you have been handling yourself as our representative in Washington.  I would like to believe that, even when a politician does not agree with the positions that I hold, she would be voting her heart and for what she believes is the right thing to do.  Sadly, you have shown the world that you are not a person of good character, who votes with her heart, but an example of the phrase “Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

When you remarked that “Harry Reid knows how to get 60 votes, and that was very important to our country in order to move forward with that legislation,” you let everyone know that simply getting any health care “reform” bill passed was more important to you than getting the right bill passed, even if it meant buying the votes of other Senators.

Well, Senator Hagan, that money that you are voting to use to buy votes to pass your little pet bill is not yours to spend as you wish.  It is taxpayers money that we have worked hard to earn.  Money that the government forcibly takes from us.  You had better have a damn good reason for taking my money and using it to buy votes for a program that the majority of Americans does not even support is just wrong.

And during the campaign you bragged about being a churchgoing woman!  I may not go to church, Senator Hagan, but I daresay that my behavior represents morals at least as good as yours.  I don’t know how you can sleep at night.

Sincerely,
A concerned constituent
