‘I go see Rep. Westmoreland; I leave terrified’
Politics hasn’t held a lot of interest to me, but as I watch my assets, my money, my rights, and my country fade away, I felt the need to inform myself as to the problem and what I could do to help.
After phone calls and Internet research, I went to my Congressman Lynn Westmoreland’s town hall meeting in Newnan on Tuesday.
Per my congressman, I learned that 400-plus senators and congressmen cannot solve the problems of the country. It’s up to the citizens.
I learned that we should support the NSA program because he knows Obama will not use our personal data against us. He never mentioned the IRS attacks on the Tea Party.
I learned he doesn’t want to defund ObamaCare. I learned he was too honest and direct to be on Fox News.
I learned that Obama and his generals’ latest version of what happened in Benghazi was correct, and we just had to let the guys die because the U.S. could not mount a response.
I learned he has his medical insurance with the state, and when I attempted to ask about lifetime benefits for congressmen and senators, I was shushed by him.
Congress’s 75 percent individual premium payment for ObamaCare was danced around with double talk and never acknowledged by the congressman.
To sum up, I have never seen a grown man who is supposed to be one-four-hundredth of the management of this country publicly whine about his problems:
Obama is always a step ahead of the House, the money is going to be worthless if something is not done, the country is about to collapse if something is not done, he has too much paperwork, senators get to use private jets and congressmen can’t, and on and on.
He continually referred to leadership in the House. That would be John Boehner, Speaker of the House, who, according to the Internet, is a reputed womanizer, drunk, liar, golf addict, and briber.
I honestly feel Lynn Westmoreland represents the interests of John Boehner more than the people of the 3rd District of Georgia. I asked him twice about John Boehner and was shushed for the second time.
The lack of leadership with not one proposed solution was terrifying — not for me, but for our children and grandchildren.
Let’s pray this country can find statesmen to sail this rudderless ship through the perils this government has created.
