I just got back from a "Meet The Candidates" forum today, sponsored by the South Lake Republicans Club and hosted by the South Lake 912 Tea Party (boy, that's a mouth full). I will focus on good ld Dick* Nugent and Jason Sager here in this dairy.
Before the canidates introduce themselves, Dr Jack Casslle (yes, that wonderful Dr Jack Cassell) spoke before the crowad of people about the bad and ugly of ObamaCare's impact. It was a informative speech that blew my mind. I couldn't wait to shake the hand that is speaking not only for doctors, but patients of those doctors. I hope to see more of him in the future.
Then it came down to meet the candidates. Before I go any further, let me tell you I got a campaign letter from none other than
Sheriff Richard Rich Dick Nugent, ASKING FOR MONEY! For one, I don't have any money to give him. If I did have any money, I give it to Jason Sager. Then there was the matter of him getting my address. I gave money to John McCain in 2008 and that's the only way they could have gotten my address. Has the NRCC picked a side and choosen the Dick*? I hope the hell not! Someone needs to this find out!
Now, I am not going to get into every question and their answers. Doug Sager** (Jason's father) filmed his son and Nugent, so the whole thing might end up on his YouTube Channel.
Jason Sager was as passionate as ever and fired up about the direction of this country. He did make a couple of comments that stood out from the rest:
1) Problems are not going to be solved over-night. It took 100 years of progressive entanglement and big government to get us in the mess we are in today, it might take us another 100 years to get back on the right track.
2) He's not going to bring home the bacon. Sager thinks earmarks are a corrupting force and will not partake in them.
3) On the first day he is there, he has a draft legislation called "Executive Reform Act Of 2011" that he wants to get to work on. I am going to get the details and write about it in another article, but basicly it will strip a lot of unconstitutional powers from the Executive Branch that it has somehow gain in the last 100 years. Again, more on that later.
Nugent was, well, boring. Still. He honestly needs to get a job at a kid's day care, because if he can almost put me to sleep then he could put kids to sleep. This guy's lack of passion could slow down Speedy Gonzales.
Sure he said all the right things, but I got the impression that he really didn't believe what he was saying. It was all talking points, no originality, and it all seemed rehearsed. Clearly Nugent doesn't take "Brevity Is The Soul Of Wit" to heart when it comes to his campagin and is wasting his and our time.
*Dick is short for Richard. I'm just calling it like I see it people.
**I had already meet Doug Sager when I first interview Jason Sager. During this forum, I got to sit next to him as he filmed the event. Today I was also honored to meet Jason's very beautiful mother and wife. Wonderful people, the Sagers.
