He works, he makes the effort, he fights back and altho sometimes makes some remarks that sometimes don't make a lot of sense, he works against the push for socialism and the flood of immigrants, legal or not, whom have been bought and paid for by the democrats. As the man said, you can't preserve your culture with someone else's babies. Once the demographic flip happens, the media has virtually ensured whites will catch hell in all areas, revenge mobs like BLM times 100, much higher taxes across the board, school redistricting, reduction of the freedom of speech and assembly, gutting the police and military. It doesn't take a lot of imagination after seeing how people behaved under Obama, that mob rule is just around the corner as soon as their guy/gal gets into office again.
Well, King goes way overboard with his xenophobic, ethnocentric and frankly, racist views. You want someone like that representing you?

And by the way, there are an increasing number of Latinos in his district who work in the food processing plants. Why are they a threat to you?

Again, you OK with a racist xenophobe representing you?

Label him however you like, I like his policies. He's very good on illegal immigration. One of the best we have in the house of representatives - at least his talk is and voting record. If that makes him a xenophobe, sign me up!

Vocalizing the insane thoughts rattling around in your head is not being honest. it is being unhinged.

Well, interestingly enough, his district has a lot of immigrants (at least some who are probably undocumented) - who keep the economy going. In his hometown!

Unfortunately, when the federal government refuses to enforce illegal immigration laws, our entire country suffers. These illegals can move freely inside the USA and nothing Steve King can really do about it. But at least he's an ally in this matter whenever legislation does come up.

Naw, it just shows he's a big hypocrite. If he really wanted to - he could suggest the Feds to raid those meat packing plants in his district. But the owners of these plants would just give him hell and they'd pull their support yesterday. Yeah, big talk about illegal immigration but when push comes to shove, he looks the other way.

Let's face it - the plants are addicted to cheap labor, and they wouldn't have it any other way.

I wouldn't. I could not trust him to govern fairly. The racially motivated things he has said, the fact that he has ties to white supremacist/white nationalist organizations, that tells me I can't expect him to govern fairly. I don't like the district I currently live in. Why would I want someone like Steve King running my district?

Why would you vote for a semi-honest bigot?

Golden is a blind partisan would be my guess.

If my guess is correct, he/she is a huge part of the problems we currently have in this country.
