Intrigue! Drama! Thirst for #LIBERTY!!!
Representative Sam Moore (R-HD 22) sent out a legislative update to his constituency. Read it for yourself, but there are some….interesting tidbits in there:
We discussed the other bills I have dropped, such as the upcoming H.B. 1014, which rids Georgia of Obamacare completely. This bill may come into play tomorrow during Session, so I have been prepping for it all weekend. This is the bill that ‘earned’ me the scary letter from Legislative Council that I may be violating sedition laws by dropping it. In other words, a one-way trip to Gitmo.
I dropped it anyway.
It’s time that we stand up for our rights, and stand against Federal Government overreach. Of the 180 guys down there, I’m the only one with the guts to do what practically everyone in the State wants to have done – kill Obamacare once and for all.
I have the image of him going *thhhbbbth* towards the House leadership. But read that again. He is the *only* representative that is willing to stand up and fight Obamacare. Uhh….ok?
Another interesting spot is where he is in both hunger and thirst and won’t take a Coke:
Another issue down there is the freebies. As I mentioned in the Town Hall meeting, they are everywhere. I have not taken a single one. In fact, I sat starving and thirsty in the Ethics class I had a week ago last Friday, ignoring the free Coke provided by the Coca-Cola company sitting right in front of me. I treat freebies like poison.
Get this: they have an entire room devoted to free food, only accessible to State House Reps. I do not partake. A guy sits there and offers it to you all day long. I’m glad he has a job and he’s a great guy, but knowing that this entire room is sponsored by a business I may one day vote for/against makes me sick.
Every day, there are trinkets and syrups and food and goodies placed on our legislative desks. Not mine. I told the House Staff that all of it was junk, and I didn’t want any of it. The same goes for the crap they put into our offices. I told my assistants that I didn’t even want to see it. I’m the only one like that, but eventually, there will be others who follow. Eventually, the culture down there will shift. Eventually, I won’t sit at my desk and hear the Rep next to me say, “I hope we get some goodies from X tomorrow, I heard they were in town.” Disgusting.
I even told them to cancel my special State House Rep plate. I already have a license plates for my vehicles. What is the point of creating another plate? It’s a waste of money. I’m not above the law, so I shouldn’t get special treatment by the police if I am pulled over just because I have some special license plate. I should have followed the law like everyone else is expected to do.
I’m sure that the gentleman from the 22nd District is steadfast in his principles and beliefs (although, if you’re willing to sellout for a freaking Coke, then you have serious character issues…I doubt that happens all that often in the legislature. I know fine men and women who honorably serve their constituents), but he seems more like a mercenary of liberty rather than a statesman. He says that he learned his lesson from HB 1033, but he continues to throw bombs at his Republican colleagues…those colleagues who would probably try to help him craft sensible legislation.
Alienation of those who would be his allies continues because, you know, liberty or whatever.
