Where is Charlton Lyons? A NEW Contract FOR Americans

      Louisiana Voters, Republicans & Democrats, I see “MoveOn.org” about the need to change “Politics as Usual.” All I see in Washington and Baton Rouge IS BULL ****! (see photo Bob)I know I can’t use those words on this site, and I respect you for wanting to keep it “civil.” But, Geez, don’t they get it that we can’t spend the kind of money they keep pushing out the door and get things back on an even keel.
Our future depends on SANE people taking control and reigning in this wild spend, spend, spend notion we have when people get elected. I grew up with Charlton Lyons, and most of you have no idea who I’m talking about. He WAS the Republican Party of Louisiana! Back then he believed you had to run government like we were spending the people’s money, like we were taking care of Louisiana, when Republicans had “COMMON SENSE.”
Today’s Incumbent Republicans, for the most part, have no more fiscal control than Nancy Pelosi.
I’m proud that a”Committee” is allowing diverse points of view, but people – YOU GOTTA GET BACK IN THE GAME. Take a good hard look at the “R” behind a person’s name on the ballot and ask yourselves what that person has done to deserve your vote. If they have voted to CONSISTENTLY RAISE TAXES, if they have been a “TAKER OF TAXPAYER RESOURCES,” or if they have been a Professional Politician, you need to look real close before you give them your support or promise them your vote.
We have dreams for America, just like Democrats say in all their political rhetoric. We are stewards of American Values. And we’re not stupid. So we will ask the hard questions, we will make candidates “Fess Up” to their past and we will take the good old boy network to task.
I’ll be back when I see someone worth supporting, but for now I’m still looking for the next Charlton Lyons for Louisiana.

FROM THE MOVEON.ORG Organization – Sounds good, But is it working?

Americans who are willing to work hard and play by the rules should be able to find a decent job, get a good home in a strong community, retire with dignity and give their kids a better life. Every one of us…has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That is our covenant, our compact and our contract with one another…
