Heller, Amodei voted on strong principles

Recently you have had a plethora of letters complaining about the votes of Dean Heller and Mark Amodei regarding the budget, etc. Most say that they do not understand why they would vote against that bill.

Well, it is very understandable why they do not. The majority of voters, Congress, and especially Obama do not get it. Their votes were very unique. They voted on principal. They both do that consistently. Something we have not seen in most of Congress or the administration for several years now. I say especially Obama because everything he does is to carry out his agenda which is to turn this country into European-style radical socialist entitlement intrusive big government, of the government, by the government and for the government.

The scariest part is that so many people believe it is OK for their government to spy on them. It is turning into the very thing that our forefathers revolted against. God help us!

Spineless Democrats are a brood of vipers

Here are a few of my comments on the subject article appearing in the Nevada Appeal on Oct. 29.

If all politicians executed the same philosophy as Jim Wheeler, we wouldn’t have Obamacare being stuffed down our throats today!

I am positive Jim Wheeler does not want slavery reinstituted in America. I am sure he was just using that analogy to emphasize his point about following his constituents’ wishes.

When so-called “Civil Liberties” overrides the well-being of our nation as a whole — such as dumbing down our schools — then it should come second, not first in consideration.

Democrats have no place in judging anyone or anything outside of their party to being “disgusting or reprehensible” after Obama and Hillary’s low-life non-response to Benghazi where four Americans were killed. In my book, no one … no one … is more “disgusting or reprehensible” than these two. Democrats are a “brood of vipers!”

Jim Wheeler should apologize only after Obama and Hillary apologize for Benghazi!
