ELECTION: Vote Doug Cloud for Congress

Letter by Richrd J Coolen, South Colby, Port Orchard on Oct. 29, 2010 at 3:23 pm with 14 Comments »

After research, I found Congressman Dicks requested $64 million in earmarks to campaign contributors in the past two years.

Stimulus funds were supposed to help us turn this job market around but went to employ friends, family and contributors at places like the Puget Sound Partnership and Maritime Events Center.

Norm Dick’s voting record is as dismal as his practice of nepotism. He has voted with Nancy Pelosi 99 percent of the time. The health care bill, bailouts and stimulus bill. All of which have failed and to the point of putting this country in debt which will put a burden on our children

Doug Cloud is a man of principle. Doug has the background of running a small business along with his skill as a lawyer to understand how the government works. The uncertainty of taxation is creating a problem where small businesses are not investing and hiring, thus we are losing jobs.

Dicks’ top contributors are lobbyists. Doug is not for sale and does not accept lobbyist money. I encourage everyone to vote for Doug Cloud to turn this economy around and to bring back the trust in our congressional representative.

    Norm Dicks has done nothing to support the residents of the 6th Congressional District – he has been too busy voting in lock-step with the socialist democrat party!! This guy needs to come to the realization that the reason he is in Congress is to work for what is good for his country not help “OH-Bummer” and his herd of marxists destroy it!!

  2. Richard dont waste your time trying to change peoples minds that already made up,no matter the amount of facts you present to them. Dicks has brought home the bacon so often,the people are now addicted to it!Dicks will have the position he now holds,for as long as he wants.Tell everyone you heard it here first!

  3. 3pig – go tell it to the republican congressional leaders who have already stated that their main goal is to make Obama look back regardless of how much it harms the county and its citizens.

  4. redneckbuck says:

    I do not have 700 dollars a month to buy healthcare. Vote out the dems.

  5. The best thing about Doug Cloud is that he opposes Bush’s wars of invasion and occupation. Cutting defense spending is the place to start in getting control of the federal budget.

  6. the3rdpigshouse says:

    Reducing or eliminating the welfare state should be “GOAL #1″!!

  7. Red – vote the Republicans in and you’ll need much more than $700 per month for health care.

  8. Doug Cloud’s campaign posters say “Lets Clean House”…Yet the dang things are littering every street corner and road in the State! Gotta chuckle at the irony.

  9. the3rdpigshouse says:

    xring – only if we continue to support the leftist dependents of the welfare state!!

  10. 3pig – as if the Republicans ever carried for in un/under-employed workers created by your party’s failed economic policies.

  11. “joanb” says, “The best thing about Doug Cloud is that he opposes Bush’s wars of invasion and occupation.”

    What I always find funny when Bush’s wars come into the conversation (of course never a mention of Ozbama’s wars!) is that right after 9-11 we might recall that just about EVERY swinging earlobe in this country wanted any “arabs” head on a platter!

    Everyone, including the “liberals” wanted justice served, went rah rah rah and flew little flags on their cars. Going to war was nearly demanded of Bush by most of the citizens of this country. So he did….then slowly but surely the “patriotism fad” faded, and folks remembered how cool and fashionable protesting was and next thing ya know, Bush booted Nixon off the most vilified pedestal.

    I still find it astounding, but not surprising that you never see protesters anymore now that the wars belong to The Wizard of Ozbama, the cool poster boy of the “left”.

  12. Bush lied us into two unnecessary wars. That’s make them his.
