You always have to pay attention to local elections.
Sure, we are in a year where we are going to decide who gets to be in the White House for the next four years, but we do need to keep an eye on the fact that laws are made by people who in local Congressional elections.
And let’s face it people, Maxine Waters is a thorn in the side of a good bit of progress across the country.
Joe Collins III is a Navy veteran and South Los Angeles native running against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). Unlike so many who grew up around him, he escaped the poverty and crime that has marked Waters 30 years in Congress.
As a person who spent his youth growing up in Water’s congressional district, Collins has first hand knowledge of the squalor and fear residents have been left to live in.
Collins spent 13 years serving in the U.S. Navy defending his country, including a deployment during the Iraq War, while over the same period Waters did little to fight for the constituents who elected her back home.
Collins has released a hard-hitting campaign ad targeting the loudmouth L.A. congresswoman who has accomplished little for her constituents during her three decades in Washington while she grew rich.
There’s serious money in old-school grievance politics… just not for the constituents Waters who elected her.
Democrats have survived on rhetoric and a compliant media to continue fostering their plantation politics more than a century and a half after slavery ended.
The ad begins with Collins standing in front of Waters home, one of a number of homes that she owns: “Do you know where I am right now? Maxine Waters’ six million-dollar mansion. Do you know where I’m not right now? Maxine Waters’ district.”
