Conservative Rep. Labrador Unafraid of Town Halls with Angry Progressives

(Emily Larsen, Liberty Headlines) While some GOP congressmen have scheduled virtual town halls to hear the concerns of constituents, or no town halls at all, Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador calmly faced over 600 citizens earlier this week who came to be heard.

From Trump to healthcare to the weeds of tech policy, Labrador answered questions from an often hostile crowd – for over three hours.

Grassroots activists from Idaho Indivisible and other progressive groups showed up with red and green pieces of paper to signify “agree” and “disagree.” With those protesters cheering and waving their signs, the atmosphere was more like a sports game than a town hall.

Reading a question off her phone, one woman questioned why Labrador publicly opposed paid maternal leave, suggesting it seemed contradictory to his pro-life stance.

“You seem very concerned about the wellbeing of children before they’re born,” she started, before having to pause for the cheers of the progressive attendees, their green pieces of paper raised. “But I wonder what happens to that compassion going forward in terms of the positive change you could make in terms of healthcare and education and parental leave.”

Labrador responded calmly, despite the din of the crowd.

“I think we have a responsibility to each other as a society. But the difference that you and I have is that some people think that should be the burden of the government. I think that should be the burden of the local communities,” Labrador said.

“I think we need to stop relying so much on the government and start relying more on each other,” he said.

Emotions ran high for many attendees who were devastated by President Trump’s election.

“The day after the election, I had to explain to my stepson that we elected a monster. Where were you?” asked a teary-eyed constituent. “Where were you, and what do you have to say to my eleven-year old and six-year-old stepsons about how you can do such horrible things, and still become the highest elected office in the country?”

The hostile environments at town halls are causing some Republican congressmen to hold tele-townhalls or virtual town halls on Facebook Live. After heated confrontations, the Utah GOP recommended that lawmakers not hold large public town halls if they cannot provide adequate security. One lawmaker sneaked out a back door to avoid protesters. Many members of Congress aren’t holding town halls at all.

“Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock skipped two ‘mobile office hours’ sessions she had scheduled in late January, as backlash against Trump and the GOP effort to repeal Obamacare began to build,” CNN reported.

But Rep. Labrador wasn’t afraid of dissent.

“I love interacting with people. I always think it’s a great thing,” he told the Idaho Statesman. “Towards the end I got really tired, I have to admit.”

The Republican congressmen who do schedule public town hall meetings provide a forum not only for their constituents, but in some cases, the whole state.

“I live in Boise, but I am in Mr. Simpson’s district,” one town hall attendee told the Statesman. “Raul Labrador is the only congressman of ours who has scheduled a town hall, so I have to give him credit for that. It’s a chance for us to have our voices heard.”

The Statesman’s editorial page says that even those who disagree with Rep. Labrador should respect his willingness to engage. Because of his consistent policy positions, there’s less reason for him to fear the angry crowds.

“There’s no getting caught up in explaining a contradiction tomorrow if you repeat what you said today. He doesn’t much care if you fancy him an ideologue, boo him or brand him with the latest conspiratorial subtitle,” said the editorial.

Rep. Labrador has another town hall scheduled during the congressional recess on Monday, April 24th.

    Anti-Trump fanatics simply are an ignorant reflection of their entire radical, liberal left movement. To explain to a child how we elected a “monster”? Are these people serious? That parent Ot to be evaluated for mental stability! Talk about buying into the trash sold by MSM.

    • Debra Shawver

      They are no different than the Bolsheviks…plain and simple…brainwashed by the progressive commie/marxists in our country. Kruschev was right…when he said “The communists would take us down without firing a shot”…how soon Americans forget history….paying too much attention to the Kardashians etc…..

      • Sylvia Avila

        Right!! They are here! Dems liberal agenda!!! Divide and Conquer us!! To push their Hate! Prejudice! Mad! Agenda! All part of NWO!!! To!

      • boone1

        Liberals have short minds.I remember what Kruschev said and you are right it’s happening right before are very eyes and it must stop or civil war will break out right here in America.Kruschev said this as he was pounding his shoe on a desk at the U.N.

    • Sylvia Avila

      Right!! But remember these Liberal Dems!! are I believe possessed by some kind of entity’s! Cannot reason with evil!!

    • kirkaloan

      Could not agree more. Any adult who would say that shows a mental deficiency. There is something wrong with these people. And they are spreading their ignorance and hatred all over the country.

  • Marie Saqueton

    Trump haters are acting like barbarians. I don’t know what they get out of it. How can they expect peace in the world when they cannot even respect the office of the Presidency. They must have really bad upbringing.

    • Rodney Steward

      They said from the very start they were going to make Trump’s life miserable while in the White house!

      • Marie Saqueton

        Election is over and the citizenry has spoken. We respected Obama for 8 long years even when we did not agree with his policies, couldn’t they show the same respect for this President who does not even take a salary? He donated his first quarter paycheck to the maintenance of our national parks. He is doing a great job for us,why can’t this hateful, barbaric people and also politicians in the Demoncrat side behave like decent human beings, because the world is watching us. They are all a big embarrassment to our country.

        • Rodney Steward

          So true Marie, we bad mouthed Obama many times but was usually for a good reason, but this is no longer the real Dem. party, they’ve turned to all out socialism, it’s the party of Community Organizers, and Activist that have gotten down right Evil!! Just think what would have happened if we had treated Obama like Trump is getting!!

    • Valerie Rouse

      I agree with Marie. Do they not realize they are “cutting off their nose to spite their face?”

      • Debra Shawver

        For supposedly “tolerant” people..they sure only show hate and disrespect…hypocrites all of them

      • boone1

        Jesus Christ said man/women have eyes but cannot see ears but cannot hear and this is what is happening right now.People the end is getting closer everyday.

  • Bill Harrison

    Progressive equals crazy loony liberal filled with hate and violence.

    • Amos10

      Where did all this hatred come from? It seems these people are extremely open to the latest hatred that comes down the road.

      • Behrens Kay Susan

        the hatred comes from Satan he is here to steal and destroy…..he is in a dither because he knows his time is limited ……

      • Shelly Shannon

        I don’t think that alot of them actually believe this crap. They go along with it to be part of the group and not be ousted by friends and family. There isn’t anything wrong with what Trump has done thus far, and I believe they are running towards the jobs, want lower taxes, want less expensive healthcare, and they probably want less regulations so I think they are spinning their wheels. I also think the democratic party is not going to recover at this point due to their constant fake news and the fact they are looking completely stupid.

  • Blair

    I was pleased that even though the audience was predominantly Democrats that they weren’t the nut-jobs we see in other areas of the country. At least some jurisdictions still know how to disagree without making total jackasses of themselves.

    • Carlos 2000

      Agreed.

  • Amos10

    Where did the stepson hear that Trump was a monster? Someone put the thought into his head. Who was it?

    • susiejg

      It was the MOTHER. . .who did not happen to mention how old the child was. Shame on her. No wonder so many kids end up warped.

  • Les Prangley

    Check ID at the door and don’t allow anyone in that is not in the distruct. Watch the attendance and the vitriol drop as Soros’ paid minions are barred fro attending.

    • Barry Thomas

      Trump is creating jobs everywhere..

  • John

    GRASSROOTS? Are you kidding , more like ASTROTURF! Too many of these people are not from the districts they go to and are not interested in dialogue just shouting down. This is a disservice to those people who want to hear from their representative not from a bunch of paid cry babies or kids in Halloween getup.

    • Naval Lint

      I’m pretty sure that the “grassroots” referred to are, in fact, just the pot-heads from the Left.

    • John Flynn

      very valid arguments you bring to my attention. indeed, PAID protestors…

  • MILES E DRAKE

    It is clear that the Obammunists have moved into the next phase of their revolutionary plan. Town halls, constituent meetings and public appearances of the congressional majority will now routinely be violently disrupted by mobs recruited by Obongo and paid by Soros. The next step will be the violent disruption of Congress and state legislatures, then the violent manipulation of elections. The answer to these satanists, socialists and sodomites should be that given by Russian prime minister Peter Stolypin a century ago, who could have forestalled communism had he not been assassinated: “You say to the government”, he told Lenin’s Bolsheviks, “‘HandsUp!’ and we reply, “Not Afraid!'” This is only going to stop when bullets smack into the diseased and drug-ridden bodies of rioting kooks, comsymps and snowflakes.

  • dosadoe

    Just got another hero: Raul Labrador! Good job!

    • Marie Saqueton

      Yes, we should all watch for this heroes and vote them back in office. We should get rid of all politicians who does not support our President or any party who does not cooperate for the greater good of America. Get rid of all the “PUPPETS” of the COMMUNISTS.

  • Gym

    I do not understand why all these commies are “angry”. They had 8 years in power and accomplished NOTHING.

    • Behrens Kay Susan

      Because Satan is using them to create havoc …he knows his time is limited and he is here to steal and destroy….which is what is happening BUT good news God is the one in real control we need to be in prayer for our country we need to ask forgiveness and then start being BOLD IN OUR STAND AGAINST ALL THESE LIES we need to turn to God ……He can turn all this evil to good that is a promise one of the promises He made

      • Barbara Gara

        I couldn’t have said it better.

  • Tim Wilde

    I don’t even know why these radical liberals are even allowed in a republican townhall! Their questions are ridiculous and no answer will be acceptable to these brainwashed nutjobs!!

    “The day after the election, I had to explain to my stepson that we elected a monster. Where were you?”

    LOL … your son would have been better off if you had told him not to buy into stupidity just because of who is selling it.

    • Barbara Gara

      Why would tell a child something like that?

      • temporary guest

        Because it’s more honest than telling a child the people of the United States just elected a monster for president. Anybody with a brain ought to be able to figure that out.

        • Barbara Gara

          huh!

        • Carlos 2000

          You are the monster. You have no sense of civility or respect for democracy. And you are trying to pass the same down to your children.

          • temporary guest

            And you are an ignorant, sanctimonious twit. You haven’t got the sense God gave a half-wit fence post and you come on here, evidently, in a hurry to make yourself feel good by insulting people. My children are already grown, already have children of their own, and I taught them how to recognize ignorant, insulting, sanctimonious twits years ago.

            PS: You are also blocked. Go ahead spew a bit,. I won’t see it :o)

          • Joe Pewter

            obviously an evidently u dont have the wit..even of a stantionary fence post..u spew punkiism that u try to argue meritlessly..=u the lame brain

          • temporary guest

            The man said to me “you’re full of chit”? What do you want me to do, ask if I can come over to his house and share some lovein’ with him?

            Now, here you are with your “u spew punkiism that u try to argue meritlessly..=u the lame brain”

            Question, o mighty hypocrite, what is it that you are spewing?

            You’re problem is that you don’t know a punk from what you see in the mirror.

            By the way, like all punks I come across on here, you’re blocked. you can go p up a rope, I’ll never know if you do or not.

            Temporary guest sounds like a paid poster for the intolerant, haters!

          • temporary guest

            No, I’m not paid, I just happen to have developed a very short patience with insulting jerks. You might say I have an intolerance for hateful people who are always insulting people they don’t know and accusing other people of what they’re are themselves. Why, are you one of those? I mean, you step into the middle of a conversation that has nothing to do with you just to take a cheap shot, I can only guess that you are.

          • REMAINFREE

          • Marie Saqueton

            We have to forgive her ignorant upbringing and pray her children will not follow in her SATANIC attitude. We hope they’ll grow up to be decent citizens of this country and not criminals, because hate produces nothing but negative outcome.

        • Behrens Kay Susan

          prayers for you and your son ..instilling fear in a child is shameful Iam a mother and even if I didn’t like someone never woul have explained it that w

          • temporary guest

            Telling a child that the people of the country they live in want monsters running the country is kind of a stupid thing to do. The object of being a parent is to instill a strong enough sense of security in a child that they can grow up to function in society… it is not to teach them early that they haven’t got a chance because the people around them are hateful and evil.

        • Marie Saqueton

          You are a satanic, stupid idiot to teach your child hate and disrespect to an elected official. Someday you will wonder why he or she became a criminal, and maybe grow up to disrespect you and throw you away in your old age. That’ll be the fruits of your crazy parental mentoring.

          • Rodney Steward

            Very Good!! 🙂

          • temporary guest

            I think you have me confused with the people I’m complaining about myself. Maybe you clicked on the wrong “reply” button. I am in complete agreement with you, which is my whole point in the first place from my very first post.

            Perhaps you should re-read the conversation.

      • Francisco Machado

        I cringe to think of what the stepmother would have felt compelled to tell the children had Hillary been elected – explaining the home server, the emails, the uranium transactions with Russia, the Very questionable (and now extinct) Clinton foundation…

  • wandamurline

    It is hard to have a meeting when all you are getting is a bunch of aholes yelling and screaming and trashing Trump. This is the face of communism folks….take a damn good luck cause if we don’t get out and work next year by volunteering our time, computers and phones across states lines if necessary to deseat every democrat that we can from being elected, by 2019, we will again be at the mercy of the libturds. I plan on volunteering my time, computer and cell phone myself and hope that others on this site plan to do the same. If you don’t want to cross state lines, then at least get involved in your state and who is running there.

    • Debra Shawver

      Me too…..1st up is get flake, mcpain’s and soros flunky, the “H” out of the Senate here in AZ and Dr Kelli Ward in…..

      • John Flynn

        i’m on the other side of the country (NJ), but yes, get Kelli Ward in there to run against Flake in the GOP primary for AZ senator….

  • kassa1

    Sounds like he is a very good man, but the left is outweighing the right at these Townhall meetings as they try to present their selves as conservatives which is nothing but a damn lie and more of the Devils deciet!

  • Al Wunsch

    I keep hearing about “the monster that we elected” and “our values” but if Pres Trump is a monster, what is a good president? what are your values? I know what Christian values are and I think I know what the values enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution are. Apparently, progressives have a different set of values.

    • Debra Shawver

      Yes they do…it is called the communist manifesto and Karl Marx…and many of the snowflake Biolsheviks know exactly what they are doing…I call that sedition

      • Al Wunsch

        Agree. What surprises me is that so many people seem to buy in to that nonsense, especially the media. We are bringing up an over educated bunch of idiots that will gladly give up their freedom and never know what they lost.

        • Marie Saqueton

          As I’ve said in my previous posts, the mainstream media has been taken over by our enemies to brainwash the mediocre minds. Evidenced by what is happening now, they have successfully brainwashed quite a number of them who now have closed minds. You cannot change their minds even with authentic evidence, because people with NARCISSISTIC personalities will be impossible to change…..because that is a character flaw and no medication can alter it. Bi-polar personality can be medicated but not narcissism. That is why the mainstream media’s brainwashing must be stopped before they convert all upcoming generations…May God bless us all and deliver us from evil.

      • Marie Saqueton

        Their leaders were Obama and Hillary, both products of that ideology in their college years. Hillary even made a thesis of it in college.

    • Marie Saqueton

      I am happy that President Donald Trump put back Christianity in the White House, he also changed the greetings to ‘MERRY CHRISTMAS” as Christ’s birthday, he said. not Happy Holidays of Obama.

  • Bob101st

    Parents should answer their children’s questions concerning political events that effect the children. I’m sure the stepson, of the lady, was not the person saying “We elected a monster”, it was the stepmom. If you act like a spoiled idiot then your children may, unfortunately inherit that stupidity from you. Explain to your children there are different political views but don’t use your own derogatory speech and actions as part of your discussion. Maybe, the stepmom should have explained Hillary Clinton’s short falls and corruption and Obama’s short falls in being an anti Constitutionalist. But that would take too much time. Why don’t parents ask their children to research a specific topic of discussion, then have the child state what sources the child used to determine a point of discussion. Parents should be willing to give both supportive and conflicting view points and explain to the child what sources were used by the parents. Just a thought.

    • Naval Lint

      If public education weren’t simply a State Programming Center, this type of true discourse would be happening in school. Instead, the LibProg “teachers” are encouraging violence as a response to disappointment. This will NOT end well, if it isn’t stopped.

      • Marie Saqueton

        School Districts must prohibit teachers from inculcating their political views to their students and to stop using them in protests, because not only it is illegal to use minors but it is also a great LIABILITY exposure for the school district if those kids get hurt. i saw in this past election that some DUMB teachers used their grade school kids to protest against Trump. It was not from our State but I had to call and alerted the attention of our State Sec, of Education of the LIABILITY exposure. We should be more pro-active when things like this happen in our community and call the attention of our officials.

    • Marie Saqueton

      I used to teach school and in 40 years of teaching 8th to 12th graders, I could tell what kind of upbringing they have at home by the way their children behave and speak. The smart ones are from the good upbringing and the loud mouths and dumb ones are usually from bad upbringing with loud mouth parents as well. Kids do a they see and hear not as you preached.

  • delta253

    We won, you lost. Get over it.

    • Marie Saqueton

      You are correct because the 12 COMMUNIST organizations here in our country has infiltrated not only our mainstream media, courts , unions and networks, but also our schools. The former KGB agent YURI BEZMENOV (google it & listen to him) said that the Communist Party of America spends 85% of their funds on psychological brainwashing and only 15% is spent on INTEL. He said it only takes 2 to 5 yrs. to transform a country’s economy, education and defense to submit to the MARXIST/LENINIST IDEOLOGY, IT TAKES THREE GENERATIONS ONLY to transform a country, They will bring a country into crisis and then promises of good things, by DECEPTION and YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE MINDS OF THEIR CONVERTS EVEN WITH AUTHENTIC EVIDENCE. For the last 35 years the USA youth has been transformed into the COMMUNIST ideology, evidenced by what is happening in UC Berkely, CA. It will take 30 to 50 years to turn the tide back into patriotsm. This is what they are trying to do in USA now, to bring us down to CRISIS, then they’ll normalize with LIES and DECEPTIONS. We are now in the state of WAR in ideology. Chaos & conspiracy is their agenda right now to cause CIVIL UNREST, using their LOW IQ converts who has no idea what they are doing to this country. They are like DUMB DRIVEN CATTLE, spouting hate and disrespect to our LAWS. To combat it…we need to educate the brainwashed people on what comes after SOCIALISM…..COMMUNISM that is for sure. We have to force the government to stop them from brainwashing our children in schools and the biased, leftist mainstream media….or in a few short years America will fall into their hands,. It is now evident that their brainwashing has converted many of our citizens who are now CLOSED MINDED and refuse to see the light.This past election was a miracle from God that against all odds and billions of dollars from our enemies supporting Hillary, God made Donald Trump win, even with just his own few millions. That indeed was a true miracle, when all the media and networks were all demonizing him….which they are still doing even now, to take us down.. May God bless America. and deliver us from evil….Amen.

  • Robert Wayne

    It’s good to see this man standing up to the hate filled anti Trump left wing goons.

  • The difference between a conservative and a liberal is decency. Labrador proved that. The liberals should pay attention. But should and do are two different thoughts for liberals. We can think all those liberal Jackass professors for that.

  • R A Reed

    Most of the town hall protesters are professional funded by Liberal and Democratic pacs. They are trained and paid to show up at town halls. The Democrats and liberals don’t have any kind of policies to help the American people they just want free. Free day care, free school, free college, free food, free housing free medical. In other words socialism. If a man and woman choose to have a child it is their responsibility to raise that child, not the government. They also need to look in their own back yard before the call Trump evil. I need to have a little discussion with the teary eyed waif. Main stream media brain washing.

        They have to research the fact that America has the most Communist party in the world ( we have 12) and next is England, they have 7 so far..

    Probably most of these people are paid protestors that Soros sent there. Soros and the Dems are going to continue to disrupt, riot and protest.

      Trump’s businesses have survived, and, in many cases, emerged from bankruptcy reorganization stronger and more financially secure than ever. Businesses were saved, and jobs were saved.

      Bankruptcy gave Donald Trump the fresh start he needed, as it has done for many otherbusinesses, celebrities, and for people struggling to make ends meet.

      I’d like to hear some of the stuff spewed from your mouth over the years also every male relative/friend of yours. Locker room talk. That was one of the least offensive I’ve heard from men over the years. And what he said probably holds much truth.

      He without sin throw first stone.

        Trump is a saint compared to Bill and Hillary who are still involved in the current scandal of children trafficking, pedophile, pay to play, Uranium One, etc, etc. If You leftists want to expose bad characters, go and read all the books written about the couple. Here are a few: Clinton Cash, Clinton Chronicle, Pay to Play, Arkansa Mena Airport Drugs, Partners in Crime, Year of the Rat, The Clinton Corruption, The Dark Legacy, Crisis of Character, Arkansas Prison tainted blood scandal sold worldwide, No left to lie, See something,Say nothing, Clean House, The Problem with Hillary, Russian Uranium One $2.5 Million to Hillary and Hillary’s America….Very informative reading about the Clintons and will open your closed mind. Most written by New York best selling authors. I read them all before I voted and decided she is not good for America or for that matter for any country. She is just tooo EVIL for the world.

          You are an impressive person that checks many areas before making a decision, if only the followers took a little time and did research themselves they would have voted differently.

          • Marie Saqueton

            We have to before we vote for the most important person for our country. Unfortunately most voters are the brainwashed products of the mainstream media and that is very scary for our country’s future.

        Yeah Paublo, Chump the Tax Evader, survived thanks to American Taxpayers like you and I. Ever hear of Casinos going bankrupt, Paublo? Only the Carp face. What gave the Nazi Putin Puppet a great start was NOT PAYING TAXES FOR AT LEAST 18 YEARS. If he was a self claimed Billionaire, WHY WOULD HE HAVE TO FILE BANKRUPTCIES AND SKIP PAYING TAXES? So you’re not offended by the locker room talk from the Scum-Slut, Pervert, you love and adore, right. Think about it, he was talking about all the WOMEN YOU KNOW. Wife, Daughters, Mothers, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS. That says A LOT ABOUT YOU, skippy!!!

    • Marie Saqueton

      Liars spit out nothing but lies….give it up you lost.

      • Bob

        Do yourself a favor Marie and go get yourself groped and grabbed by the Pervert, Putin Puppet you support. Then start practicing your Russia so you’ll be ready when Chump gives the US, including Alaska, to Putin as a gift!!!

        • Marie Saqueton

          Bob, I feel sorry for you, your hatred for Trump for whatever reason is not only making a liar out of you but also making you sick to the extent that you lower yourself to the gutter. Hate will rape your brain and your physical being, not to mention your integrity if any.

          • Bob

            Marie – You look like a nice lady, who refuses to face the facts about the Scum-Slut you put in the White House. There’s good reason why he has a 34% approval rating. His lies are catching up to him and the Nation is getting wise. Once those Crooked Tax Returns come out, HE’S TOAST – BURNT ORANGE!!

          • Marie Saqueton

            He was audited by the IRS during his campaign which I am sure due to Obama’s order and he came out clean. Corproations are audited every three years and they ask for the the previous years ending the last audit year, I know because my husband when he was still working (not retired at 82) that was the schedule of the Dept. of Corporations. Someone exposed his 2005 taxes and he paid $39,million in taxes that year and most probably even more now because he came out with flying colors. Why you guys are still harping on that is beyond me. To begin with, tax returns on anyone is protected by the Privacy Acr Law and it is up to the person to voluntarily disclose it if he wants to. Trump said he would gladly release his tax returns if his lawyers did not prohibit him from doing so, because of his vast holdings in foreign countries, there must be a NON-DISCLOSURE agreement there with his foreign counterparts that he can violate if he does, and that can make him liable to them. Contractual agreements with foreign governments and corporations almost always have non-disclosure protection that most simple people will never understand. Take some Economics and business college units and you will understand what I mean, instead of throwing erroneous allegations against Pres. Trump. It makes you sound like an idiot.

          • Bob

            You are far too gullible. There is no audit and there was no audit. Chump has been asked MANY TIMES to produce the letter from the IRS acknowledging an audit taking place. Such a simple request for an HONEST PERSON TO COMPLY. That 2005 Tax Return you mentioned came from the White House. Why do you think it only contained 2 (TWO) pages. Just keep believing the BS Chump and his Russian Agents keep putting out and you’ll learn your lesson – but it will be too late. You got what you wanted, now live with it!!!

      yeh we should have gotten SAINT Hillary and Bill because they didn’t lie or steal every chance they got. With Hillary we knew the county was screwed,or give someone else a chance and maybe we get change.

      • Bob

        No, Hillary’s not a saint, but she not a Tax Evader, Pervert, Scum-Slut who calls women Fat Pigs and Ignorant who should be judged by their boobs. The last Republicons (Bush/draft-dodger Cheney) you “gave a chance,” screwed America into the ground by losing 800,000 jobs PER MONTH while killing 4,500 Americans in Iraq looking for WMDs THEY KNEW DIDN’T EXIST. Yeah sure, we should give the Republicons ANOTHER CHANCE TO BURY AMERICA AGAIN AND DRIVE US INTO WW III. You got to be NUTS!!!!!!

  • Rick MIC

    It is time to “drain the swamp” and get government out of our lives.
    ATTN. CONGRESS: The government runs out of money this week. Do us a favor. Go back to your districts for the next 90 days. This should solve all of our problems.
    Thanks.

  • Rick MIC

    Do we have any real conservatives in congress, or are they a bunch of cowards who are afraid of their own ideas?

    This Friday the government runs out of money. Will our right winged cowards join the libtards in congress and pass another budget that we can’t afford, or will they grow a pair and tell the libtards to take a hike, and let the government shutdown.

    Real Conservatives want a very limited government and this is our chance to accomplish our goals.

    Shut it down, we don’t want it or need it. Why do you conservative cowards constantly run your mouths off about your ideas, but when you get a chance to implement your ideas, you get a big yellow stripe down your backs, and then go running down Pennsylvania Ave. with your tails wagging between your legs.

    DRAIN THE SWAMP!! SHUT IT DOWN!!

  • Dennis Cerasoli

    These town hall meetings are a farce and shouldn’t be held because nothing is achieved and they are useless.When a conservative holds them they are packed with liberals’s like the lady who said we elected a monster which is ridiculous,Trump is no monster and he won an election fair and square in an electoral landslide of 304 electorates.Nough said.

  • Shelly Shannon

    I wonder if any of these anti-Trump people even have a legitament reason to defy him. And what kind of parent describes the President of the united states as a monster to their children especially ones that are much to young to understand what life is about little own what politics are about.?

  • Loretta

    These are examples of how easily people can be led over the cliff and into their own demise as a nation of freedom

  • Maxine Albritton

    I wonder if a parent or grandparents who tells a child we voted in a monster, at the age mentioned they have a better understanding of things then much younger children. How do they expect these children to grow up and what are they going to be like with this type mentality spurring them on?

    • John N

      You must be mistaken the Monster was Hillary..we almost made that mistake..Thank you POTUS TRUMP

      • Naval Lint

        AMEN to that!!!

  • Laurel

    In town hall after town hall the left is organizing and flooding them hoping to gain traction as the angry mob.

  • John N

    These town hall paid protesters should be arrested for BREACH OF PEACE and STUPIDITY..

  • Sylvia Avila

    Do not go to our meeting in Reno!! They have been hijack! By insane Dems!! So I just email my Congressman!! I believe they bus them in!

    • Marie Saqueton

      They are paid $5,000 a day from the Soros foundation “The Open Society” I read that.

      • Sylvia Avila

        Right!! Soros member of NWO!! They want to take over America!!Watch out!!

  • boone1

    The lefts useful Idiots if you ask me.These people thank they should get everything for free and I wouldn’t care to bet that 90% are on welfare and food stamps.

  • [email protected]

    professional politicians know how to cover their money from income tax. They have years to plan what is going on their tax return. Trump was not planing to go into politics therefore he didn’t hide things from his tax return . Only long time politician know to do this ahead of time

  • Francisco Machado

    “is food a right, thereby making it free?” – Rights are things government cannot take away from you, not things government gives you. You have a right to the food you grow, you have a right to the food you buy. And you have a right to the money you earn to buy that food. The food, in any case, is not free. Someone worked to grow it, someone pays for it.

    • IzzyBell906

      I appreciate your reply. I agree, I have a right to buy my food with the money I earn, not to take it from our hardworking farmers! It would be seized in a communist country.

  • Sylvia Avila

    Right you can!!!
