Be sure to check out the video coverage from Monday’s protest in Greensboro at Senator Hagan’s office. TEA Party activist Joyce Kraweic was interviewed by WXII and spoke well for all of us.

Thank you, Joyce!

    While it’s practically a given that most elected officials place lobbyist and special interest group’s wants above the needs of their constituents; now in some states they are deserting their official duties, walking off the job, cowardly leaving the state and their constituents behind specifically to avoid representing those who elected them in the first place. They should not only lose their elected position, they should lose every benefit that came with it as well as face criminal charges for going AWOL.

    I am (currently) a registered Republican, and have been all my voting life. However, there are no elected officials, (from the president on down to city councilman/women) that I am not completely frustrated with, in many cases disgusted would more aptly describe my feelings. Some I know refuse to vote because of their same feelings. What I try to do before election time is evaluate an incumbent’s record and then most often vote non-incumbent. I believe it’s a travesty that those “We the People” elect to serve us; once in office, concoct, vote for and pass laws that they are exempt from. Laws that effect them in no personal, financial or legal ways,(for the most part).

Desertion of duties, especially in combat is considered treason and punishable by death. Those politicians may be of the legislative branch of government, (rather than military) still they should be held to account for such a blatant dereliction of duties.
