The elections are going to be the focus of the
drive by media for some time, and remembering
campaigns past we have a few comments.
In past elections it had been stated by some
democrat candidates that the ‘Republicans want to
put you back in chains.” Too bad said candidates
couldn’t run on their accomplishments or know the
history of their party.
In 1854, Democrats passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act
which overturned the Missouri Compromise and
allowed importation of slaves to the territories.
Or do they know that blacks founded the Texas
Republican Party? On the 4th of July in 1867,
150 blacks and 20 whites founded said party.

support and 86% Democrat support. And we will not
call it the Affordable Care Act.
The candidates will be sure to bring up climate change,
green energy, and gun control. On the later, Samuel
Adams once said “The Constitution shall never be
construed to prevent the people of the United States
who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
Listen to what is said, separate the truth from the bull,
