Walsh vs Duckworth=Reagan vs Communism

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”
Benjamin Franklin

Replace the word, “people” with “Duckworth supporters” and this quote pretty much sums up the Joe Walsh/Tammy Duckworth debate last night. Tammy is a good speaker and liberals and conservatives in the audience listened to her as she spun her tales based on her service and emotion.

What she possesses in speaking, however, she lacks in substance. When asked about her support of Obamacare, she launched into emotional stories of those without healthcare totally ignoring the substance of the tax Armageddon she backs. She talked about how wonderful teachers are rather than address the exploding pensions problem in Illinois. She erroneously reported that Illinois does not have trouble with voter fraud (is she new to Cook County?) saying instead she did not want to discriminate against minorities. She counted on the emotion of the liberals in the audience to get her applause. They did not disappoint.

Almost every answer Tammy gave included her veteran experience. In fact, she obviously insisted that she be called “Lieutenant Colonel” each time she was addressed. I wonder if anyone counted how many times she said the word “veteran.” That is her platform–I served therefore I can succeed in representing you in Congress. Wrong. John Kerry also served and we know from his abysmal voting record how well that has turned out for America. They both back socialism/communism, increased spending and a decrease in the defense budget–at a time when America is in grave peril from the Middle East. Regarding Tammy’s proclamation that her military service prepared her to run a budget, an article in Examiner.com summed it up stating:

“…just because you were a member of the military does not mean you have first-hand knowledge in dealing with the military budget. This is like saying a janitor at a school has the same “first-hand” knowledge in dealing with a school budget.”

Joe Walsh, on the other hand, reported what liberals in power have done to our country in the form of taxation and spending us into gargantuan debt. He confronted Tammy on her spin but it was difficult to hear him. Every sentence was punctuated with cackles and caws from liberals in what can only be described as a pagan arena. The only time they quieted was when Joe explained to them that if we don’t fix the pension problem OUR way, the courts will decide for us when Illinois is in bankruptcy. Unfortunately, their standing ovation of Tammy at the debate’s end shows us that their out stretched hands prevented their entitlement brains from understanding the gravity to the country (and the 8th district) of a Duckworth win.

Walsh is the voice of truth–though not an eloquent spinner of tales–he is the real deal. He stands up for all Americans and fights for us.

The first piece of legislation he introduced was a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. He then took the lead in opposing the debt ceiling increase. He’s taken a hard line on Washington’s reckless spending. He introduced multiple pieces of legislation that would cut off all U.S. funding to the United Nations and {has fought to keep the Egyptian government accountable}. (Redstate.com)

Joe Walsh is a true conservative, one with backbone and integrity, who will never compromise the Constitution or his principles. He reminds us of Ronald Reagan who was the same kind of man. The one thing Joe doesn’t do well is spin a tale–as in Tammy’s case–a fairy tale of “what you’ll get if you vote for me.” He’s not about handouts–but rather about saving the country and that includes the 8th district in Illinois
Ms. Duckworth can best be described as a controversial ultra-liberal, tax and spend Progressive heavily funded by out-of-state special interests and the Chicago machine. Congressman Walsh has been described as a ‘controversial Tea Party-backed freshman’  who has been particularly vocal in urging Congress to reduce spending and cut taxes. (klsouth.wordpress.com)
Friends with the Muslim group CAIR, Tammy is also proudly backed by the Communist party.

One might say that for the 8th district, Tammy is John Kerry And Joe Walsh is Reagan. I’ll vote for Reagan–and Joe Walsh every time.
