You may recall that I visited with you and your staff on August 14 at Congressman Lungren’s office. To put a face with this email, you may remember me as a Kaiser employee, motorcycle rider, private pilot and last year’s Folsom Music Boosters President.
When we met, I expressed my serious concerns regarding the new direction taken by the federal government. I also shared with you my view that Congressman Lungren has not been very visible in the media or to his constituency regarding specific news events. I said that conservatives in this country were a powerful force but felt isolated and under attack. Since then, much has happened, including:
The Acorn scandal and the disclosure of its criminal activity and ties to SEIU, Apollo, Tides and hundreds of smaller organizations using taxpayer funds for political agendas.
The conference call directed by the Whitehouse instructing the “non-profit” federally funded NEA on how to create an iconic vision of Obama and his agenda.
The controversy over the insertion of Obama’s political agenda into public schools by broadcasting a live speech during classroom hours.
The resignation of Van Jones when his radical communist and racist views were made public.
The disturbing comments from the Mark Lloyd, chief diversity officer of the FCC, admiring Chavez for taking control of the Venezuela media.
The misrepresentations of the healthcare bill during Obama’s address to congress and the fallout from Joe Wilson’s unfortunate outburst.
The rush to vote on the healthcare bill without making it public and the censor of debate in congress.
Obama’s policy shift which no longer supports Israel.
Obama’s policy shift which no longer supports Poland-based US missile defense plans for Europe.
Our embarrassing presence at the UN during the rants of Chavez, Ahmadinejad and Kandfi while other nations, including Canada, walked out.
The unprecedented rise in Fox News ratings as virtually all of the other television media ignores or marginalizes significant conservative stories, including the March on Washington.
Circulation of the You Tube clip showing Maxine Waters grilling Shell Oil President John Hofmeister and threatening to “socialize” (her own words) the oil industry. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrA9zj94NuU&feature;=related
Circulation of the You Tube clip showing Democrat Alan Grayson questions Elizabeth Coleman, Inspector General of the Federal Reserve, regarding oversight of the Fed’s ever-expanding balance sheet, and the potential multi-trillion dollar loss that would be dumped on US taxpayers. Her ignorance of the situation is frightening. http://dailybail.com/home/there-are-no-words-to-describe-the-following-part-ii.html.
This week’s revelation that the US Postal Service is now billions of dollars in debt.
The list goes on…So my concerns remain the same. Can you please point me to any news articles or events where Congressman Lungren has spoken out on any of these events? I still feel as if Fox News and a handful of talk radio programs are the only voices reflecting outrage on the level of corruption, gross negligence and arrogance which seems to be driving the federal government today. Respectfully, I do not believe that I should have to monitor Dan’s web site to hear his views. He needs to make some news of his own. If he does not, I can tell you that there is a growing sentiment among many of my friends to simply vote everyone out of office regardless of political party and start over. We need conservative leadership, as reflected in this blog.
Rand Paul took the stage Wednesday and led a filibuster that should have had both sides of the aisle applauding. Unfortunately, only the GOP...
