END Hate Crimes AND High Energy Prices - FIRE SAM JOHNSON!
Let's Try FREEDOM!
BA, 1979, Princeton, cum laude, economics; MA, 1983, University of
Chicago; taught at U of Chicago, DePaul, Roosevelt; worked in the Reagan
Administration for the US Commission on Civil Rights; did research on
human rights violations in Vietnam that was read into the Congressional
Record by Cong. Bob Dornan; traded commodities and options; a com-
puter and database consultant for almost 20 years in the private sector.
I'd like to be your Congressman in the 3rd Congressional District.
Did you know that incumbent Congressman Sam Johnson:
Voted against extending Hate Crimes Laws to cover sexual orientation, gender, and disability? Does he care if Dick Cheney's daughter, Phyllis Schlafly's son, Bob Bauman, etc. are tied up,
gagged, beaten to death Matthew Sheperd style, etc. and the local judge says, "worst case of suicide I ever saw!"?
Said we should torture prisoners, despite the 90 to 9 vote in the Senate for McCain's anti-torture bill? Even though he and McCain were tortured together in Hanoi? Even though this will
give other nations an excuse to torture as well?
Is helping Bush keep oil prices up by his anti-withdrawal stance? After Murtha's call for a six-month phase-out in November, gas prices fell sixty cents-only to rise again once Bush's
'plan' had no deadlines. Commodities prices in that time period prove that our continued presence increases insurgent attacks.
Volunteered to nuke Syria? Then said it was 'kind of a joke' eleven days later? Even if he was kidding, perhaps he does want to invade them, but how when our troops are tied down in
Iraq? Or does he want a draft?
Insulted the very person-Richard Nixon-who got him out of Hanoi, yet praised Bush who has gotten us into Iraq but won't get us out?
Is involved in the DeLay/Abramoff scandal' That it's connected to his being in the bottom half of Republican Congressmen in 2004 on fiscal responsibility?
Said "it would be a cold day in hell" before he approved any amnesty for any undocumented workers-even towards a guest-worker program, and even if they've been law-abiding while
Voted for the Istook Amendment (which failed by over 100 votes) even though it would have repealed the need for Federal contractors to have translation services available for citizens
who still haven't learned English yet which only costs EIGHT CENTS per taxpaying family of four? Yet voted for Iraq, Leaving No Child Behind and the Prescription Drug 'Benefit' which cost
each family over $3000?
Voted consistently for Most Favored Nation status for Communist China since 1991? That slave labor camps and ripped off patents are frequently used there? That their growth and
savings from this is helping to build their military? That we had Jackson-Vanik with the USSR, notMFN? That he nevertheless continues to support the complete embargo on Cuba which,
evidently, keeps Castro in power? Karl Marx said that the capitalist would sell the rope to the hangman who'd hang the capitalist, which is what we're doing with Communist China with
M.F.N, status. How anyone who fought against the Chinese Communists in Korea and then was tortured in a North Vietnamese slave labor camp could favor Most Favored Nation status
for Communist China because of mere campaign contributions is beyond me.
Voted for so-called Leaving No Child Behind which costs $60 billion and is such a failure that largely Republican Utah was the first to give upon its unfunded Federal Mandates, and that
one of the real purposes of LNCB is to have a ready conscription list?
Voted for the Prescription Drug 'Benefit' which costs $75 billion and mainly benefits drug companies by driving up the price so that only part of the subsidy is received by the customer?
Voted for Mandatory Psychological Testing of children, connected to Leaving No Child Behind AND the Prescription Drug Benefit so the Federal government can have greater control of our
kids and make them take Ritalin, Welbutrin, etc.?
Did you know that he got over 180,000 votes in the General Election in November 2004 but only about 12,000 in the Republican Primary and is thus difficult to remove in November but
easy to remove on March 7th? THAT NO DEMOCRAT HAS EVER BROKEN 26% in the 3rd?
Did you FURTHER know that voting in the Republican Primary enables you to be a delegate to the Texas Republican Convention in June where we can change the plank that says we should
get rid of ALL hate crimes laws?
Basically, our district has changed, but not our Congressman. In 1990 the census showed that only 15% of the district was Asian, Hispanic, or black. In 2000 it was 36.7% - today it's
probably over 40%, but Sam acts like it's the 1970s, hence his nuke Syria remarks, his voting record, etc.
I am very sorry for all that my opponent suffered at the hands of the North Vietnamese Communists, but I don't want him in Congress anymore.
Help me help you. PLEASE vote Bob, not Sam, in the REPUBLICAN Primary (even if you're not a Republican!)
on March 7th or in early voting Feb. 21 and onwards. We can also use money and volunteers if you can help.
