Mia Love was one of my most-loved candidates of 2014 and she is already proving her mettle after winning her election.
Bless her heart, fighting to give poor people freedom from the ability to pay their medical bills.

I have explained several times why I see her as a potential conservative star. She is a great communicator and orator, and is evidently steeped in individualism. What other freshmen congress critter, when asked to name her favorite economist, would reply 'Bastiat.' What other congress critter would sum up her political philosophy w/ one word: "agency." One definition of 'agency' offered by Meriam-Webster is "a person or thing through which power is exerted or an end is achieved." So Mia is talking about the capacity of individuals to make decisions for themselves, without the intrusion of Washington DC. She explicated this in a speech when she said (paraphrase) "when government gets bigger, individuals get smaller."

She is the personification of 'happy warrior' and has a background in acting. We had another conservative politico like that a few years ago who did ok.
I agree that she is a rising star. I find her engaging, intelligent, charismatic, and her positions are often my positions. The only point I was making with my previous post is that all politicians work for us, are paid by us, should be accountable to us, and can be fired by us.

All of them are unworthy of rock star status. All I want them to do is the job we pay them to do. When they're done doing the job we pay them to do, they can go on with the rest of their lives. That's all I want from my plumber. That's all I want from my accountant. That's all I want from the girl behind the counter at Burger King. That's all I want from my politicians.

Your judgment on your politicians ethics is highly suspect.

As for my representatives, no they do not always do what I want, but they have broken no laws and removed from office for those actions.
Again, he hasn't actually been committed of breaking any laws, but we do take corruption very seriously and deal with it accordingly. Your opinion of our judgment of our politicians is of no concern to us. We have a standard we hold our politicians to and deal with that accordingly when they do not live up to that standard.

Just because your representatives haven't been removed from office, doesn't mean they haven't committed any corruption, it might just mean no one has bothered to investigate into any potential corruption.

Of course this statement applies as much to you as those that you disagree with, right? No matter how much you criticize all other politicians, right?

By your own statement you have no right to judge others by your own supposed standards.

BTW, do you speak for all in your state, or just pretend to?
