Qualifications for running for congress as set out by the founding fathers:
- Be 25 or older
- Live in the US for over 7 years.
New qualifications for Congress according to media, politicians, and stupid voters:
- Spend at least a million dollars with the media, be a career politician, and don’t say anything that sounds like you have a mind of your own.
- Sell out to special interests to get the million dollars.
- Be a stuffed suit. Preferably a lawyer.
Mike Turner, “our” congressman fits description two perfectly. His well oiled machine even had some idiot voters having Turner signs next to Obama signs in the last 2 elections.
If you listen to Mike Turner, his favorite thing to say is “I work for Wright Patterson Air Force Base”- even though he voted to shut it down along with the rest of the government.
Political races shouldn’t be defined by dollars in the campaign fund, they should be defined by ideas. Right now with an overwhelming number of Americans believing used car salesman or trained monkeys could do a better job in Congress, it’s sad that when a decent guy, a school teacher, decides to run for Congress because he meets qualifications of the founding fathers, he is totally ignored because he doesn’t meet the “New Qualifications” of being what I like to call “the best politician money can buy.”
I sat down and talked with Rob Klepinger for a short interview so you can see what a real person running for Congress sounds and looks like. He doesn’t have a proper campaign site up, and he’s not raised enough money to have to file campaign reports, but if you are sick of a dysfunctional Congress- you may want to amble over to Facebook and at least like his page:
The current Ohio district 10 contains all of Montgomery County and Greene County and a sliver of Fayette County.
Here is the interview- enjoy
