    Same for Senegal.
  2. Ralph Labradoodle President Fitzgerald's executive order rivals the draconian policies of George W Bush and Obama......both of which I opposed. The executive branch cannot arrest much less deport citizens or non citizens on "suspicion" of "terrorism" without a warrant and without due process. This issue is not about political parties since I loudly decried similar actions under two separate presidents from two separate political parties. This is about upholding and protecting the constitutional rights of citizens and non citizens from a dictatorship. This executive order is unprecedented in the sheer threat that this order places to our entire constitutional republic. The president has lost touch with reality much less the republican values of constitutional law. I normally would shy away from criticizing a sitting republican president, but not when it comes to orders like this. If I have to choose between protecting constitutional law and a political party, I would rather be ostracized by my party and stand up for the values and constitution that I SWORE to uphold and protect.

    No. While we disagreed and had a spirited debate on the House floor, we understand that our party is a big tent which holds many views. We were both civil in our disagreement both in public and behind closed doors.

    I do support the anti-corruption bills including the constitutional amendment to limit term limits. I was certainly hoping that those reforms would be brought up sooner…..especially given the scandal that has hit the now majority democratic party. I would have thought that the democrats would be more eager to show that the corruption that we saw this last election was being addressed. I a meeting with the speaker later on possible bipartisan issues and bills. I will bring that up when I meet with him.

  7. I believe that whistleblowers should be given quite wide protections since what they are doing is alerting authorities to illegal activities. It is quite brave to do such a thing even at the risk of your job, career and reputation. I, for example, agree with Snowden leaking the information that he did......especially since what he was uncovering and revealing was unconstitutional and illegal. I always say that sunlight is the best disinfectant. Those who are blameless have nothing to hide...and thus I see no reason for employees (private sector or government) who uncover illegal activities.

    Generally I think he has done a good job. I agree with his tax cuts, I agree on border security and I think that those policies have lead to more jobs and a better economy.

    Bowling with Labradoodle

    Ralph Labradoodle Ralph Labradoodle hosted a bowling event in Boise Idaho to promote his campaign to fill Senator Jim Risch's seat in the senate. "I want to show the people of Idaho that I am more than just a stuffy politician", said Labradoodle in-between bowls. "I am open to hearing from my constituents and having a bit of fun as well."
