Congratulations Alabama. You were heard loud and clear. And, you are getting what you asked for. But then, I know you are aware of the “be careful what you asked for” cliché. In many regards, this applies to the Alabamians who voted for Jones.
I have to ask, did any of you who voted for Jones, go to his website and see what he stands for? That alone should have stopped you.
Jones talks of morality, but he is pro-abortion. He has a problem with someone accused of sexual misconduct, but has no problem with killing a fetus for the convenience of the … “carrier.”
He supports modifying the “three strikes law” for some who “perhaps” can lead a “productive” life as an alternative to life in prison. I’m wondering how many “strikes” are needed in order to ascertain someone is a criminal who chooses not to reform?
Jones supports reform by reducing prison time … for people of color because … they make up the highest percent of individuals (within their race) in prisons. So instead of tightening laws and community outreach programs … he is going to give criminals of color (“of color” are his words) lighter sentences to get them in and out and “save tax money.” I would be more concerned about “saving lives,” but, that’s just me.
He states, “More spending on education could be less spending on prisons.” I wonder how that works? Apparently, Jones is not sure, either … since he using the speculative word … “could.”
Jones is pro-Obama Care. He believes no woman should be denied coverage of services based on the religious beliefs of her employer. What that means is … yes … an employer has to provide for abortions and birth control needs, whether this is in his/her religious beliefs or not.
He was against withdrawing from the Paris Accord. That means more regulations, stunting job growth, expensive solar panels, and ugly, small, electric cars.
But … that is only a little bit of what awaits Alabamians. Understand … those who supported Doug Jones, are not getting some guy named Doug Jones.
They have elected Barack Obama and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker. Doug Jones is the mere puppet who will nod his head and shake hands with his constituents. That … is where it will end. It will be Obama and Booker who pull the strings that make Doug Jones dance. It will be their bills that Jones may write and co-write or support. It will be their words spoken and not the thoughts of Doug Jones.
Congratulations, Alabama … you have just elected a puppet … a shell of a man who is no more than what Obama and Booker want him to be. They own him. He doesn’t work for you. He works for them. And … have no doubt … they will remind him of that every day.
Congratulations Alabama … the trojan horse has now entered the building.
Thank you for reading my blog, today. If you like the vibe … please subscribe!
