Thank-you Devin Nunes

Our local representative to Congress voted NO on the bailout plan (McCain and Obama both called for it's passage...snakes). I want to say a HUGE thank-you to Mr. Nunes for having the guts to stop this insanity. He said in his dissent, "Taxpayers should not be liable for Wall Street risk-taking" and that in passing the bill we would have taken "a dangerous step toward socialism by nationalizing the bad debt of Wall Street. The very foundation of a free market rests upon government not doing exactly this."

Finally, someone I can actually vote for that speaks the truth.

"The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money."
Alexis de Tocqueville
