Attend Councilman Flocks Town Hall Meeting Thursday night and the councilman invited all candidates for our congressional district to his event. Two showed up Democrat Michael Wager and Libertarian David Macko. Just call me "Dave" Joyce couldn't make it there must have been another railroad problem dealing with trains somewhere in his district, Hey 2 out of 3 ain't bad!
We were allowed to ask candidate questions and two I asked to Mr. Wager was who did he vote for in the last Presidential election and his feeling about the ACA? Trick question? Well he answered that he voted for President Obama and he believed quality health care should a right for all Americans.
Now comes the main attraction Libertarian David Macko . He alone is worth the price of admission. First David is a member of several principled Tea Party and 9-12 groups. First if need be shutdown the government. Impeach President Obama for treason, murder, war crimes and let's not forget failing to prosecute President Bush and Vice-President Cheney for war crimes. The President also somehow has blackmail Chief Justice John Roberts to declare the ACA constitutional.
As far as the federal government in Mr. Macko's country, Painesville would have more departments than the feds.
No IRS, EPA, AT&F, DE, NSA, Homeland Security, HHS, and God knows what else. Also end Social Security, Medicare along with Medicaid.
I'll say one thing for David he has no problem with gay marriage. but that comes with a caveat repeal of all federal prostitution, pornography and gambling laws. Also repeal the Minimum Drinking Age, funding for Child Services kidnappers and Violence Against Women Acts of 1994 and 2005. I hope he's for pot smoking if people like this get elected we'll all start smoking pot.
To his credit David is Prolife, and stong supporter of the second amendment.
After that barrage I had to ask seeing that David is 72 years old, does he collect Social Security and uses Medicare benefits? His answer, I will stop stealing from the government if I get elected to Congress. Great, I told him but what about these people here the won't be elected to Congress? That's when I believe he got a little upset with me.
Things also got a little testy when the Libertarian candidate for Governor who comes from Hispanic heritage got upset when David used the term "wetbacks" when he discussed immigration. Yeah Andy it was a great hour.
Finally if you want/ need to understand more of Dave' views go to;
