Hold elected representatives accountable

Published: March 5, 2014 4:00 AM

Mr. Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder, have decided to allow banks to give loans to those wanting to open businesses selling mari-juana. Although some ultra-liberal states have allowed these businesses to exist, the law of the land actually prohibits this kind of activity.

Eric Holder is the chief lawyer of our land at this time. Why isn't he enforcing our laws?

Where are our representatives? Maybe they, too, are on marijuana or some other drug? With the exception of a few in Washington, no one is challenging Obama's far-left liberal socialist agenda. Where is the outrage?

Wake up, America. As citizens of this great country, we are obligated to elect representatives that reflect American ideals and have the courage to honor their oath of office and protect our American constitution. The mid-term elections give us the opportunity to get rid of those who only have a self-interest in their careers as being politicians. Find out what their voting records are and if they represent your beliefs. Also, make sure the person replacing him/her is who he/she claims to be. Make our representatives accountable to us. It's our future.

Susan and Richard Mansell, Aurora

Didn't Pres. Obama say there isn't a smidgen of wrong doing in the IRS Scandal? But Lerner takes the 5th.

WHY? If there is no wrong doing.

redleg...lerner is not stupid. If she testifies she is a dead woman. Even an offer of immunity will not get her to testify and thus  commit suicide.

Lois Lerner took the 5th again today. Said she doesn't want to incriminate herself concerning the phony IRS SCANDAL.

"~~cheerleaders the low intelligence voters "

As long as the "mainstream media" refuses to be objective journalists instead of democrat cheerleaders the low intelligence voters will continue to vote for freebies from the democrats. The establishment repubs may be worse as they stand for nothing and keep caving in to the democrats. The national polls have obama and coongress at record low approval ratings...so what? The 51% of the population receiving OPM to more or less a degree are not about to vote out their free money.

America has woke up and thats why marijuana inches toward being legal or at least not being illegal.

About what the Marshall's have submitted, Lots of bombs, little substance.

When I read or hear statements like "~~Maybe they, too, are on marijuana or some other drug?" I wonder if the person using the statement is on some form of drug and thus too stoned to present an actual argument by stating their case (evidence) in a logical and rational manner and have taken the lazy way out and instead reduced themselves to bomb throwing.

To further my speculation the Marshall's are under the influence or even gooned into oblivion I'll cite "~~With the exception of a few in Washington, no one is challenging Obama's far-left liberal socialist agenda. Where is the outrage?"

Really? A few in DC? Wheres the outrage?

Wouldn't one have to be inebriated to the point of unconsciousness to miss the whining, the crying, the wringing of hands and rending of hair over Barry's "Socialist Agenda" from the RWNJ's on the street all the way TO and including Washington? Wheres the outrage? It started before Obama even took office. One would have to have been .... "asleep" .... since '08 to have missed it. ?


The lesson for today is to not dismiss someone because you imagine them to be on drugs because it opens the door, sets the precedent, and allows others to make the same speculations.

Because turnabouts fair play.

Except for the ACA those are Rights upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States. Because this is the United States and people have Rights.

And the ACA has also been upheld by the SCotUS.

Right Wing Nut Jobs have attempted to not allow people those peoples Rights with some success but for the most part those attempts have been crushed and are to a large degree failures.

Many Politicians not getting with the ACA are looking at the end of their political careers.

It's called reality, more people should visit it sometime.

Perhaps the liberals will think differently when a conservative follows Holder's lead and refuses to enforce Obamacare, pro-abortion laws, and pro-gay marriage laws.
