    THe repugs always rant about money for their kids, why they dont do rant the same way about the enviroment and clean energy. Do they want their kids with billions of dollars and walking around with two heads, five hands coupled with half the earth distroyed by natual disaster. Theyve been telling the nation for years now that the dems were lying about climate change who their trying to fool, Just another reason to spew more toxin in the enviroment to kill off earth defences.

    If anyone of them are incumbents they need to quit wasting their money running. They need to pack up and leave. This is the goal of us Tea Party People. We intend to clense America.
