Dallas, Texas – Thursday,
October 10, 2013.

I am a Republican, a moderate Republican,  and  am
here to tell you,  that  neither I, nor the Republicans or the Americans
gave permission to Ted Cruz to turn the nation upside down, we are not a third
world country to break the rules and do what we please.  You and I are safe today, and our government
remains a model of stability to the world because we are a nation of laws. We
have systems to follow, a due process to hang on to, and rules to obey.

This act cannot be approved by conservative Republicans either, who prefer
stability over chaos, and are disciplined enough to follow a system. That is
how democracies work.

Other pictures taken today –

Ted Cruz sounds like
a class room bully who frightens the kids and gets away with it. He is indeed
an excess baggage of the Republican Party that can be done with.  Can the
Senate or the President fire him? Hell no, we have a due process to do everything,
and it is embarrassing that the Republicans got bullied by him, and even the
conservatives threw the system of due process out the door. It is not good for
the country, it bring chaos.

Shame on me and
fellow Texas Republicans for voting him in, but 2018 is not too far, we will do
the right thing, but do it respectfully obeying the law of the land.

The prime responsibility of Government is to protect her Citizens from external
and internal enemies – the external being other nations attacking us, and we
need not worry, we’ve got the best defense forces in the world.  However, the #1 internal enemy remains the
disease that cripples productive Americans from being contributors to the
greatness of America.

My fellow Republican need to understand that a healthy America makes us a
productive Americans, the health care is an investment in human capital, and
not a charity or subsidy. A corporation would rather have productive employees
than the ones who get sick frequently and lower its productivity.  It
behooves for us to invest in the health care, even it were totally paid for by
our taxes. Healthy Americans makes a healthy America.

Affordable care act is not a political issue. It is neither Republican nor
Democratic, it is an American issue, and it has two dimensions; Legal and

It is illegal to drive on the wrong side of the road, it is illegal to go 40
MPH in a school Zone during the school hours and it is illegal to rob the bank
at gun point.  It is illegal to bust into
the Capitol Hill and stop their proceedings; it is illegal to stop the
congressman from doing his duty if we don’t like him or her.  It is illegal to mess with the established

The Affordable Care act was passed by the Congress, the Senate and Signed by
the President and ratified by the Supreme Court. It is a shame that few of the
Republicans to claim that no Republican voted for it, that is gross disrespect
to our system. We honor all the legislations passed by the elected
representatives. This is a dishonorable act on the part of the few and illegal.
Shouldn’t there be consequences for breaking the law? Shouldn’t I be arrested
if I block Ted Cruz from entering his office and doing his job just because I
don’t like him?

The Human side of the equation is inhuman, that these nuts continue to be
rewarded with a paycheck, and deny the same to 2 million federal workers. I was
listening to NPR, some congresswoman said, she has got to have her paycheck
because her son goes to college, what about the 2 Million Americans, and don’t
they have kids? Why should you be bloody special?

Then my own story – I could not afford the expensive health insurance, and was
hit by a massive heart attack on July 9 this year and will be indebted for life
to pay those bills. Then they say I needed a Quad-pass surgery and I was tense,
and did not want to get into debt, no one would sell me the insurance.  Thank God for the affordable health care, my
wife found me the company to insure me with the pre-existing conditions. I am
paying $380/month compared to $800 quotes I had received before.  There are millions of Americans out there who
can’t even afford that. 

What Republicans need is an education in business besides basic biology and
mathematics. We need to understand that the economy expands with volume and
brings prosperity to everyone. If we make insurance affordable, the enrollment
volume will pay for it, there is more money in the piggy bank to even out with
the consumption. Then of course, a healthy America is good for the economy,
good for business and good for the American spirit.

I urge my fellow Republicans and Americans to call on the Congress and demand
to reopen the government. I have sent faxes and published the same. Please
remember evil exists not because of men like Ted Cruz, but because of men and
women like you and I, who do nothing. What are we afraid of doing the right
thing? Please pick up the phone and make the call to your representative. You
can find his or her number at
