Congressman Chabot: Do Not Vote To Overturn The Decision By The States

Congressman Chabot: Do Not Vote To Overturn The Decision By The States

An open note to my Congressman Rep. Steve Chabot.

2020 was the first year that I have ever voted for you in your entire career. I didn’t vote for you because I admire you (I don’t), I simply voted for you because your Democratic opponent refused to not vote for Nancy Pelosi as the Speaker of the House. Don’t make me your political enemy in 2022 by trying to overturn the essence of federalism and the power of the individual states in their Constitutional role of checks and balances in the selection of our POTUS.

Efforts to reject the votes of the Electoral College and sow doubt about Joe Biden’s victory (whom I did not vote for and do not think will be a good POTUS) strike at the foundation of our republic. It is difficult to conceive of a more anti-democratic and anti-conservative act than a federal intervention to overturn the results of state-certified elections and disenfranchise millions of Americans. The fact that this effort will fail does not mean it will not do significant damage to American democracy.

Mr. Biden Has Effectively Rebutted His Own Campaign Warnings

Mr. Biden Has Effectively Rebutted His Own Campaign Warnings

In the days leading up to the November elections, Joe Biden told some whoppers on the subject of health care. Perhaps that’s to be expected in the heat of a political campaign.

Mr. Biden’s recent Covid-19 vaccination in Delaware proves he now understands that his consistent skepticism about the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed was misguided. This is probably excusable in an election as the words that come out of a politician’s mouth are rarely correlated to reality. Trump is responsible for his inability to convince the American public that he set up the apparatus to get us out of the global pandemic. That failure of communication is probably reason enough to lose an election.

When I first saw a story about this, I checked my calendar as I was certain it was a joke and this happened to be April Fools Day. I was disappointed in both regards: yes, it is still 2020; and no, the story was true.

Why in God’s name is our government spending time dictating how long or short a dishwashing machine can run? Don’t we have better uses for our hard-earned taxes? Throw the bums out!! I have no desire to pay ANYONE for such advice let alone an overpaid bunch of bureaucrats. The worst part is that this is a regulation so all of the dishwasher manufacturers have to hire lawyers to make sure they are compliant with this silly rule. This cost gets passed on to the consumer so therefore this is a CONSUMER TAX that would unevenly hurt poorer people (i.e. it is a regressive cost/tax).

Joe Biden Isn’t Planning On Doing What Is Best For You

Joe Biden Isn’t Planning On Doing What Is Best For You

Not only has Joe Biden proven to be one of the least capable Senators in the past 50 years (having not sponsored any significant legislation during that time) and successfully suckled on the federal government’s teat for over 4 decades, but now he doesn’t think that you should know his plans if elected.

“You’ll know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over,” Biden said during a campaign stop in Phoenix. “It’s a great question, and I don’t blame you for asking. But you know, the moment I answer that question, the headline in every one of your papers will be on the answer to that question.”

Well duh!! Of course it will be on that question. Because it is an important question and the American citizens have every right to know the answer.
