Thread: Mitch McConnell
I'm fed up with him. He voted to renew the Patriot Act and voted for the NDAA. I wrote him when the Patriot Act was coming up for renewal and urged him vote against renewing it. He did take the time to reply to me by mail. To sum up his reply he basically said we need the patriot act to defend ourselves from terrorists. He didn't respond to my claims that the patriot act has done very little against the terrorists, but has worked wonders in circumventing the BoR in the war on drugs.
And do not forget that he helped increase the National Debt by supporting the so called "bail outs".
If I didn't know better I'd run against his sorry ass myself. Lack of money and lack of name recognition mostly stop me. It doesn't help that I'm not quite old enough to run yet, either.

I can't stand him either, fellas. I remember when Congress was still debating about the first round of bailouts. He voted against them right before his election. After he got re-elected, he went ahead and voted for them. Same with Ben Chandler, I believe. In the case of Mitch, this is why I would advocate that we need to register Republican and vote against him in his primary. You have roughly two weeks to change your party affiliation!
I, too, would love to see someone replace McConnell. IIRC, he always seems to be unopposed in the primaries and his opponent in the general election is even worse.
Edited to add: Rand Paul is one of the only people I can say I'm proud to have supported. I wish we had more like him.
