REAL CONSERVATIVES

NEVER TOLERATE TYRANNY!....Conservative voices from the GRASSROOTS.

Our political leaders/representatives are some of the brightest, smartest, and most logical people on earth.

To hear them talk shows us something entirely different . . . . . stupidity permeates much of congress as demonstrated by the following:



Perdue jokes about suspending Congressional elections for two years

Speaking to a Cary Rotary Club today, N.C. Gov. Bev Perdue suggested suspending Congressional elections for two years so that Congress can focus on economic recovery and not the next election.

"I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that," Perdue said. "You want people who don't worry about the next election."

The comment -- which came during a discussion of the economy -- perked more than a few ears. It's unclear whether Perdue, a Democrat, is serious -- but her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the idea.  (Read her full remarks below.)

Later Tuesday afternoon, Perdue's office clarified the remarks: "Come on," said spokeswoman Chris Mackey in a statement. "Gov. Perdue was obviously using hyperbole to highlight what we can all agree is a serious problem: Washington politicians who focus on their own election instead of what’s best for the people they serve."

The Republicans sure are taking it seriously as they look to score political points. Here's a statement from GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood: 

“Now is a time when politicians need to be held accountable more than ever. To suspend an election would be removing the surest mechanism that people have to hold politicians accountable: the right to vote. Does the Governor not believe that people of North Carolina have the ability to think for themselves about whether or not the actions of elected officials are working?"

UPDATED: GOP House candidate Paul Coble didn't think much of Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue's idea that congressional elections be suspended for two years so Congress can concentrate on the economy.

“That’s a proposal that only the politicians that have worsened our economic mess could appreciate,” said Coble, who is chairman of the Wake County commissioners. “Governor Perdue and the politicians in Washington may fear the message voters send next November.” 

Perdue's full statement:

"You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things. I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. The one good thing about Raleigh is that for so many years we worked across party lines. It's a little bit more contentious now but it's not impossible to try to do what's right in this state. You want people who don't worry about the next election."

 


Bev Perdue Totally Looks Like The Joker

 
 
     






Here's hoping the state of North carolina can find their way out of the wilderness.

"What are WTP going to do to correct this mess we created?"

 I think We the People are beginning to DO something about it and the evidence is the rise of the third political party alternative, The TEA PARTY.

The 2012 election has two important aspects to it. First who will beat Obama and second will the TEA PARTY continue it's rise to power.

 If the Tea Party continues it's rise to power in 2012 then I would expect that in 2016 the TEA PARTY will have it's OWN set of presidential candidates.

 I encourage the TEA PARTY every chance I get.

 I don't see the TEA PARTY running inside the Repulblican Party rather I see a separation on political philosophies and the TEA PARTY becomes it's OWN political power in some period of time.

 There are too many disatisfied voters unwilling to wait on the "old guard" Republicans for a return to constituiotnal principles.

We are lead by a group of MORONS.  But then we elected them.  What are WTP going to do to correct this mess we created?
