Rep. Christopher Shays, a Republican from Connecticut, seems to think his colleague has to play by the same rules as everyone else.
Representative Shays, let me explain a few things to you, and maybe I can sway you away from the terribly misguided path you are on.
You hail from Connecticut which is in the North and the Republican Party is the party of the South. They don't care what you think. The GOP knows you will support their dismantling of capitalism and freedom because they give you just enough funding to keep your office. This might change, of course, now that you are speaking out against the Southern leadership. You should either become a Democrat or grow a spine and stand-up to your colleagues in some meaningful way, not sound bites and press releases. Clearly, though, you are a hack for the Southerners and will eventually do what the bosses tell you. Your record speaks for itself and no sound bite will erase your record of self-serving avarice and hateful unAmerican politicking.
You are from Connecticut which is in the North and you seem to forget that Texans can do whatever they want. You retain quaint notions so many of us hold dear about democracy. Sadly, you are a member of the GOP and your party is systematically dismantling our democratic processes of checks and balances and they have no plan to give any Northerner a voice in the new America. You are to blame, Representative Shays! You vote with these people and you pretend to be appalled by their actions -- you codify their actions. You are part of the problem, and no sound bite is going to hide your participation.
The current American president plans to continue using you to implement his immoral war and his unconscionable tax cuts. He knows you will do his bidding. Why? Because you are a sniffling Republican Northerner who needs the funds of the Texans to keep your sweaty little claws on your House seat. You are complicit and no sound bite is going to make it look like you care about your constituents or Americans north of the Mason-Dixon Line.
Representative Shays, you can continue to provide little sound bites and issue press releases, but you will not do anything to jeopardize your standing with the GOP leadership. You plan to do their bidding until your constituents are so disgusted by the sight of you that you either become a Democrat to save your soul, or you slither away with your ill-gotten gains to some retirement community in the South.
Rep. Christopher Shays: you are a Republican and you have helped create the environment that tells DeLay, Bush, Cheyney and the rest of that scum that they have carte blanche, and all they have to do is fund your campaign and when they are finished with Iraq, you'll happily send your constituents' children to die in Iran.
If you really care, then get to work and start saving what is left of the great America where you and I grew-up, instead of greasing the skids for these slimey Texans to rape us all of our freedom, money, children, future and morality.
Rep. Christopher Shays you ought to be ashamed of yourself! Do something or shut-up!
