I think that we can most assuredly say,
Bill Johnson’s campaign is full speed underway.
As a combat Naval officer he knows just what to do,
To protect and defend this nation for me and for you.
You can get his personally recorded US Constitution on-line,
And listen for yourself to his Reagan conservative bottom line.
You see, it’s the citizens’ owners manual, the seeds of our liberties’ tree.
The Bill of Rights comes directly next and is for our Democracy a written lifetime warranty.
His opponents scoff, they snarl, they even stomp and whine,
For they know sure enough in their hearts,
The will never live up to the Johnson straight Constitutional line
There was a debate this past Saturday in McCracken County in Kentucky that featured three of the top contenders for the retiring senate seat of Sen.Jim Bunning. From all the feed-back that I have received Bill Johnson’s campaign has turned it up a notch and is now bringing on the heat! He is up against Dr. Rand Paul and Secretary of State Trey Grayson. Paul is a Libertarian that is co-opting the Tea Party movement claiming to support smaller government, less taxes etc. but clearly is only trying to bring to Kentucky what his father Ron Paul tried to do in the ’08 presidential elections and the citizens of Kentucky are far smarter than given credit for. Having personally been attacked by members of the Campaign for Liberty by merely asking that my name be removed on their mailing list!
I wasn’t able to attend the debate but have been kept informed with comments and emails about how Johnson stood firm on his conservative platform, holding proudly the Constitution. This, for me, resonates; HONOR-DUTY-COUNTRY three very strong characteristics I look for when selecting a candidate to support.
There was a lot of rumbling throughout the state by one site or another but I suggest you read “Paul, Grayson snipe at each other“, the comments are actually better than the post itself and is a good indicator of the sign of the times here in the Kentucky political scene. My all time favorite comment on my site about this event has should be shared once again, it pertains to the “whining” and “foot-stomping” of one Rand Paul…
Let’s describe the opening shall we…Announcer, First opening statement will be Dr. Rand Paul. Then Secretary of State Trey Grayson followed by Bill Johnson.
Dr. Paul opens, Whaahh! I am a Pro Life supporter! Whahhh! I am too a Reagan Conservative. I want an apology Whahh!
Let’s get real here people is this the level of Paul’s pain threshold in the political arena? This guy is moaning like a little twit! Like we need another cry baby in the US Senate.
Mr. Grayson, Opened with a standard opening and didn’t whine.
Mr. Johnson. Opened with a standard intro as well not whining or pouting either!
Back to Dr. Paul, He rudely coughed into his mic during Mr. Johnson’s time to comment without saying so much as excuse me or I am very sorry. Again plain rude.
Through out the Debate Dr. Paul carried himself poorly, rolling his eyes, leaning against the lectern shifting positions regularly. All while the others candidates stood politely not displaying any body language indicating their wish too be elsewhere as did Dr. Paul. At the end Dr. Paul could only be described as having “Tursely given his fellow Senate candidates a brief hand shake and then almost tripping over himself to exit the stage to the waiting arms of one would presume too be his mother given his cry baby outbursts.
Bill Johnson is the stand out winner in this debate, no matter if you counted signs going out the door or the applause meter or if you listened and watched these three candidates present their case for why they should get your vote.
I was impressed with Grayson, even though I have said on more than a few occasions I would not vote for him for anything. He reeks if the establishment. Last night I changed my opinion of Trey a little. For you Rand Paul Fans I was in that camp last Summer and part of the fall. I am looking for the best man for the US Senate not an image.
At end let me describe where the candidates decided too be. Paul and Grayson where in the auditorium with a few big supporters and the members of whatever press were there. Not the everyday folks. As the majority of people were leaving Bill Johnson was out in the “lobby” pressing the flesh and talking to the people. It was a great day for Bill Johnson
So I strongly urge you to get involved and donate what ever you can to support Johnson’s efforts. This can done by simply donating $5.00-$10.00 what ever you can to ensure that our true conservative values are truly represented not only for Kentucky but for all of America as well.
