Brilliant Question, Freaky Answer
Q:"If they can do this, what can't they?"
A: "The Federal Government can do most anything in this country."
This is an exerpt from Congressman Pete Stark's (D, CA) town hall meeting, 7/24/2010, Hayward, California. Questions like hers in town hall meetings give me hope for this country. Maybe she would like to run against Stark? This maroon has been elected 18 times in 37 years in the 13th District of California. Way to go, 13th District!
Stark answers: "I think there are very few constitutional limits that would prevent the federal government from rules that could affect your private life. . . . The federal government, yes, can do most anything in this country."
And these are the kinds of people who get elected time and time again to represent the people in Washington. For the love of God, no wonder we're so screwed up.
Update. From Michelle Malkin. Chris Pareja is the independent Tea Party candidate running against Stark. He's a father and small business owner with solid grass-roots support and a limited government agenda. Learn more about him here and help out his campaign.
