    Who do we vote for ?

    I received a reply from Senator Voinovich asking for his opinion on the
    Oboma Budget, we need to know who is on our side?

    Budget, 2nd Amendment, CC, etc.

    We could send letters and attach a copy of Senator Voinovich's letter and
    ask if they agree.

    Than we could compile a list of who we want to vote into Congress and
    Senate, as the seats become available.

    Dear Charles:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding President Obama's Fiscal Year (FY)
    2010 budget. I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.

    On February 26, 2009, President Obama released an outline of his FY2010
    budget. After carefully reviewing this document, I have significant concerns
    with the budget. The proposal unrealistically promises everything to
    everyone and masks the sacrifices Americans will be forced to make if it
    passes. The $533 billion deficit figure in FY 2013 ignores the continued
    borrowing of roughly $200 billion a year from Social Security and other
    trust funds, while doubling the debt in five years, tripling the debt in 10
    years, and continuing huge deficits beyond the five years detailed in the
    budget.

    While this budget promises to make middle class tax relief permanent, it
    also spends at least $634 billion to increase the role of the federal
    government in the health care system, and it does not clarify how our
    government budget, which is already stretched by existing entitlements and
    tax reform and relying on the phase-out of the spending in the stimulus
    bill, a reduction of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and revenue from
    cap-and-trade is irresponsible, and as a result I did not lend my support to
    this budget.

    Budget experts universally believe that in order to get our astronomical
    deficits under control , we must fix federal entitlement programs such as
    Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. The head-in-the-sand mentality on
    behalf of the President and Congress needs to stop. It will be much easier
    to tackle these problems now, rather than waiting until later when there
    will be significant pain for Americans who depend on these programs. With
    these concerns in mind, Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) and I recently
    introduced the Securing America's Future Economy (SAFE) Commission Act,
    calling attention to the irresponsible and reckless fiscal path we find
    ourselves on as a nation. The SAFE Commission Act would take long-overdue
    action and establish a national commission to examine our tax and
    entitlement system and present long-term solutions to place the United
    States on a fiscally sustainable course.

    I believe that the decisions made in Congress today will be reflected upon
    the lives of our children and grandchildren, and that we have a
    responsibility to ensure that we leave a proper legacy. I look forward to
    working with my colleagues in the 111th. Congress to find responsible
    solutions to our nation's fiscal problems and practicing greater fiscal
    responsibilities and discipline.

    Thank You again for contacting me. As a fellow Ohioan, I genuinely
    appreciate hearing from you. Please feel free to contact me again regarding
    this or any other issue that concerns you.

    Sincerely,

    George V. Voinovich

    United States Senator

    The best thing to do is research voting records for those running. Do this in all areas of interest to you and pick the one closest to what you want. Unfortunately there is no perfect candidate.

    here's the short and sweet on who supported and voted in favor of the Usurper Obama's budget...

    535 members of Congress...

    NOT ONE REPUBLICAN VOTED FOR IT...

    "Bi-partisanship," my ass! As long as the Obama-nation is in office, the word is an oxy-moron. Of course, most of Congress are morons, anyway.

    Who to vote for

    This a copy of the email I sent to Congressman Wilson and Sen. Sherod Brown in Ohio.

    I wonder if I will get a reply?

    Dear Cong. Wilson

    I received my letter from Sen. Voinovich with his feelings on President Obama's Budget, but I haven't received anything from you.

    I have many that are interested in who suports the Gov. take over, and hand outs to unions for political gain, and who believes in Free America and not Socialism.

    Thank You
    Chuck White

    I did receive an email from Senator Sherrod Brown, it is the typical BS say nothing reply.

    I think as far as Ohio goes (Sen. Voinovich is a Yes vote) (Sen. Brown a No vote) (Con. Wilson a No vote)

    Dear Mr. White:

    Thank you for expressing your views regarding President Obama’s nominations for executive branch positions.

    Those appointed to President Obama’s administration will be responsible for implementing his policies and advising him on issues relevant to their departments. I look forward to hearing from the President's nominees and learning more about their views when they come before the Senate for confirmation.

    I appreciate your concern, and when the Senate considers their nominations, I will certainly keep your views in mind. Thank you again for getting in touch with me.

    Sincerely,

    Sherrod Brown
    United States Senator

  8. Senatorial and Congressional 'Grades'

    Senator Brown is rated an 'F' by the Gun Owners of America (link here), and Senator Voinovich a 'D' regarding their respective votes on 2nd Amendment issues.

    Congressman Wilson is rated by GOA a somewhat better grade of a 'C'. (link here).

    I think I am going to move to Texas or Alabama, they both have two A's.

    In Ohio my best choice is a D.
