Alan Grayson for Florida 8th District

O.K., the guy is not exactly Ron Paul and he has socialist tendencies regarding domestic spending like voting in favor of Health Care Reform, but his big issues are in line with Dr. Paul. Foreign Policy, Monetary Policy, Bank Bailouts, Audit the Fed, are all 100% in lockstep with Dr. Paul’s positions on these issues.

According to a Politico article Grayson must be defeated in order for the Republicans to take over the house. His seat is under the “must become Republican” category …

“Bomb-throwing liberal Rep. Alan Grayson’s approach doesn’t reflect the competitive nature of this Orlando-area seat. The freshman is one of the most cash-flush House incumbents but faces a top GOP opponent.”

I got to tell you, I would vote for Grayson before I voted for the Republican running in my district.

His opponent is Ric Keller (R), and I can’t even find his website.

For those of you in the Florida 8th district, who are you going to vote for and why?

Thanks in advance for your responses

ehhh...

I still would not vote for him. Its his backwards ass belief that govt gets it right that I cant support. He doesnt realize or believe that more govt is bad.

I hope the house turns and not the Senate. That way we have a better chance for Ron to be elected. Its going to be hard to sell Paul at his age to younger voters. The message is sound... its the presentation that matters.

If there is no Liberty

If there is no Liberty candidate and no real prospects for a real challenge, then he should stay in. He will find it hard to work in D.C. now that everyone knows what a backstabbing weasel he is, and he's likely to drive democrats to ruin in 2 years. Perhaps then, someone will come along with a more liberty oriented philosophy.

Alan Grayson hypocrisy supported the Fed.

Before Alan Grayson was elected, he was in a primary debate in Celebration, Florida-- where I live. I asked him about the Federal Reserve and the bailing out of Bear Stearns in the Spring of 2008. Keep in mind that this was about 6 months before TARP.
To make a long story short, he supported the Federal Reserve bailing out the Bear Steans with our tax money. His rationale was that they (the Federal Reserve) prevented another Great Depression!

NO

Grayson is a lunatic.

Are you one of Grayson's staffers trolling here?

Grayson's a commie

The only thing he has going for him is he hates the Federal Reserve.

He's not even crazy in a funny way, like Kucinich.

He's not even entertaining, like Jim Traficant.

He's just a totalitarian-leftist and wishes to replace the Fed with more tyranny.

Agreed

As soon as I saw Grayson stick up for Georgia attacking the russians in Ossettia and praise the Flotilla raid, I knew he was a communist.

This pretend libertarian hates the Fed so he can get his buddies to start a "Global" Fed. In my opinion he should be fired as soon as possible.

Grayson's opponent is not Ric Keller

It's Daniel Webster. Ric Keller is the RINO that Grayson beat out in '08.

I can't believe any pro

I can't believe any pro liberty person would vote for Grayson. He is the leading Marxist in Congress.

I'd rather have a social justice type with principles

who wants to stop spending to kill over a neo-con any day. You could only hope that maybe that if the district was looney (sane?) enough to elect him, maybe they'd go for a liberty type too.

Praying for grid lock

I hope there is grid lock in congress. I'd prefer that NOTHING were done rather than more of the same.
I don't trust either party and we are a long way from regaining any semblance of a constitutional government.

Amen

I read today that Harry Reid was insulting Sharon Angle because he had not met anyone who thought she was an "accomplished legislator." For that reason alone, she has my support.

I agree that I prefer NOTHING over more of this insanity.

gridlock is better than bad government

I agree with you. It would be

I agree with you. It would be felt to lose such a dynamic colourful, strong rep. At least you know where he stands.
