Very thankful to be in the company of tireless, dedicated patriots here in South Florida.
The last meeting before the do-or-die 2010 midterm elections was held the other night in West Palm Beach. At my friend Steve Rosenblum’s suggestion, all candidates in attendance were afforded an opportunity to speak first before attending to other business. I am so proud of everyone running and can only say that after listening to their presentations, I more excited than ever about next month’s elections. Florida has an excellent slate of candidates, and I am thrilled to support them via precinct walking, robo-calls (in the case of Pam Bondi), blog posts, social media and every form of activism available to us in the 21st Century.
One of the most dynamic, passionate and gentlemanly among them is Bernard Sansaricq, an intelligent, articulate voice for American freedom who is running against impeached judge/thug Alcee Hastings in Florida Congressional District 23. Bernard exuberantly announced Newt Gingrich’s recent endorsement of his campaign, to the delight of the entire audience, before noting that Belle Glade — Hasting’s place of birth and the poorest area of the state — is suffering with 42% unemployment.
At a recent Belle Glade debate reported on by my friend and tireless patriot Yomin Postelnik, Hastings threatened Sansaricq after challenging him to a debate in which the statesman noted:
“I have visited Belle Glade 20 times since the beginning of the campaign and I intend on being YOUR Congressman. And I won’t tell you that you need to hire a lobbyist when you need something from me. That’s because your congressman is elected to be your lobbyist!
Belle Glade has a 42% unemployment rate. You can be sure that when elected, I won’t hire some girlfriend and pay her $160,000 of the people’s money when those funds can be used to hire eight people in Belle Glade. I also won’t take trips to Europe with that girlfriend on the taxpayer dime. I will remain here and have a presence in the district, fighting for you.”
Alcee’s response, in full earshot of all of the assembled elderly residents of the no longer Quiet Waters, “You’d better travel safe! You’d better travel safe! You’d better travel safe!”
For those who don’t understand thug-ese, that’s a desperate threat (albeit an empty one) on Bernard Sansaricq’s life. — Yomin Postelnik
In case it’s not perfectly clear from that short excerpt, Florida CD-23 is in desperate need of strong, principled leadership — and Bernard Sansaricq is the perfect man to deliver it. Please visit his site and donate anything you can.
In fact, take a look at each of these great candidates and do whatever you can to help. Our freedom depends on it.
