Blackburn is a good lady. i have met her a couple of times and done site-Security for her once. But, like so many that start out solidly Right like her, after a few years they start moving left as they are insullated from their roots and home-folks. Sadly, she does need to come home to at least get re-grounded. Beavers is the same way. Corker seems like a likealble fellow, but he is an East TN Rino just like Haslam and Alexander. East TN does not and never has to my knowledge supplied true Conservative politicians. Their brand of Republican is sort of like the New England Republican, someone more liberal than most Southern Democrats. For some reason though TN never seems able to elect a West TN Republican and precious few Middle TN Republicans to the Federal level. Probably has to do with population of the State. West TN while normally more Conservative has fewer people and the very Liberal Memphis has the same population as all the rest of the West TN counties combined. Middle TN is Right-leaning and more populated, but is hampered by Nashville. But enough of its surrounding counties insullate it to help dampen a lot of its effects. East TN is as populated as Middle TN, and is solidly moderate overall with Chattanooga and Knoxville thrown in that lean Left so East TN holds a lot of sway.
may not know the REAL Marsha Blackburn. The Marsha Blackburn, I know is a
police state, big government, progressive that has consistently voted for
immoral and unconstitutional legislation such as the USA Patriot Act. Her last
rendition of urinating on the DOI, COTUS, and our natural born freedoms was to
vote for the CISPA legislation. ''
Not only does her record of consistently refusing to vote for legislation that
actually cuts spending (she calls a reduction in the rate of increased spending
a spending cut), she is a steadfast supporter of just about every big
government overreach her progressive socialist party that calls itself
Metaphorically speaking, Rome is burning to the ground and she is worried about
100 watt light bulbs and she couldn't even get that legislation passed.
She like many of her so called "Republican" colleagues have
shamefully broken their oath of office and as such in my opinion are traitors.
Oh, I will
grant you that she is FAR better to have in office than a progressive Marxist
(aka Democrat) but that is akin to being given the choice between horse manure
or buzzard droppings to eat. Given that choice........who wouldn't go with the
horse manure and gladly but remember first and foremost it is still manure. ''
In our times is seems that anyone who actually take the COTUS, DOI, and their
natural born rights seriously is labeled a kook or a crackpot while those who
dutifully parrot the propagandist party line are the main stream and political
More than a few are becoming aware and fed up with being told that half a loaf
is better than nothing when the "half loaf" does not even qualify as
a few crumbs.
