Congressman Pete Stark
continues his rampage against the American people. His views on what this country should be continues to be exposed. In a recent townhall meeting someone questioned Stark on how demanding that others pay for your healthcare is in the US Constitution. Stark said with conviction that the federal government can basically do whatever the hell it wants, thus insinuating that the citizens have no say. In essence, Pete Stark is saying that the federal government is a dictator.
"The Federal Government can do most anything in this country," Stark said in response.
There are no checks and balances in his mind. The feds are an all powerful being and your chances of stopping it from doing anything is nil.
This is the same congressman who recently said in June 2010 that "The borders are quite secure" and asked a minuteman in the audience "who you gonna kill today?". While you may disagree on the immigration issue - unlikely as poll after poll shows 80+% oppose illegal immigration - Stark has also showed his contempt for an elderly constituent in September 2009 by telling him "I wouldn't dignify you by peeing on your leg. It wouldn’t be worth wasting the urine.".
"How can a disrespectful, slimeball remain in the US House of Representatives?" you may ask. Well the key is called gerrymandering. You see his district has been drawn out into favorable areas who would vote for him. This then counters those who clearly want this man out of office. In essence through the re-districting process they have nullified opposing people's votes by including a ton who rely on Pete Stark's anti-American beliefs. He promises them freebies, in exchange for dictatorial power, and they continue voting for him.
To understand how this works, say you were a congressman and you realized that 10,000 new voters were against you and were planning on voting you out of congress. The easiest way to "put the screws" to them is to simply have your district enlarged or reworked a little into favorable areas where on offsetting number of people who would vote for you reside. The other way is to have your district shrunk a little, or to have a little portion of your district "cut out" which includes a large proportion of those people who are not going to vote for you. That is what a lot of California looks like - and many other states - and certainly California District 13 where Stark sits as you can see in the image above.
Things like gerrymander are just another sign of a corrupt representative and corrupt state legislature. They can't win on their stance and their beliefs, so they rig the system. The real problem is that while districts are a state issue, they impact you and others elsewhere in United states, because people like Pete Stark have a say in how you live your life - and want even more control if they can wrest it from your hands.

It was not reported to be an "invasion of Texas" - why are you hyping it that way? Maybe to make it seem ridiculous - I'm sure you don't have an agenda for open borders at all do you. You are totally clueless about what is happening at our border and the facts WILL come out and Kim has more journalistic integrity in her little finger than all the MSM journalists. She will not reveal her source since it would compromise the source's livelihood and life.
Meanwhile, nobody is questioning the alleged text message coming from a phone in Mexico claiming to put a bounty on Sheriff Joe's head - supposedly sent by an unnamed cartel - yeah right. If the drug cartels wanted Sheriff Arpaio dead they wouldn't send a text message about it. But nobody is questioning that story eh? Where's the proof?
The bigger story here is - the lamestream media is really threatened by citizen bloggers - that's the real story and that is why Kim and Digger have been attacked. The MSM needs to discredit citizen bloggers and they will smear them in any way they can. Meanwhile none of these MSM media people have any more information that this did not happen than information that it did happen. Of course those in that area who wish to cover it up and downplay it are only too happy to go on record. But the people with the real truth are not able to do that.
I wonder how many people said the same things about Woodward and Bernstein with their confidential source Deep Throat regarding Watergate?
