Many good, hard working individuals are discovering renewed hope. I am one of them. Learning that Ron Bhalla, as Congressional Candidate, is re-energizing interest in The Manhattan Declaration is huge! Thank You Ron. Please read just one tiny excerpt from this great document: "We... have united at this hour to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them. These truths are (1) the sanctity of human life, (2) the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife, and (3) the rights of conscience and religious liberty. Inasmuch as these truths are foundational to human dignity and the well-being of society, they are inviolable and non-negotiable. Because they are increasingly under assault from powerful forces in our culture, we are compelled today to speak out forcefully in their defense, and to commit ourselves to honoring them fully no matter what pressures are brought upon us and our institutions to abandon or compromise them. We make this commitment not as partisans of any political group but as followers of Jesus Christ, the crucified and risen Lord, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life." Once again, Thank You Ron Bhalla!

What could Weston possibly write about that would sell?

"Born into Privilege: A Young Man's Story of Accomplishing Nothing without Daddy's Name"

@lesliesmart @biff_loman Just curious if you have had a conversation with Mr. Wamp? If so, could you give some context for your beliefs?

yes, i have spoken to weston

here's some context for you:

a 24 year old kid is in the running to represent over half a million people

his life's accomplishments: graduating high school, graduating college, that's about it...

do you know how many people fit that description in this district, let alone the country?

now tell me, if he didn't have his daddy's last name and therefore connections to daddy's campaign contributors and was just some 24 year old kid that hasn't done anything significant past getting an undergrad degree wouldn't you and everyone else rightfully laugh him out of the race?

i know some of his father's significant past donors have told him they wouldn't donate to weston and that he should get out in the real world and accomplish something first....sound advice, get out there young man and do something and come back and run for a major office in about 10 years, you'll still be awfully young

can you imagine the impact that a 25 year old will have in a house of over 400 members each of which will have a better resume than him? and you want this kid to represent our interests?

no thanks

Having worked with Weston Wamp, I can't imagine how someone would call him a brat, they are clearly misinterpreting his success. He's got a deep passion. His focus is definitely in the right direction. It's worth giving him a chance.

My name is Allan Davis and I have worked with Weston for about 18 months. I'm 33 years old and I've never voted for anything because I didn't believe it mattered who got elected. I wanted to hate the guy before I met him but over the past 18 months I've come to know and respect him. He has inspired me and I will be casting the first vote of my life for him in August.

So april 5th has passed and I doubt anyone has noticed that the candidates seeking office has changed.

Well-formed, intelligent quotes from the experienced CEO...

  • "I haven't studied his voting record that close"
  • "I'm sure we will when we get a little bit deeper into that sort of thing, but I'm going to say not really."
  • "I'm not going to talk about it because I think it's going OK (referring to our Defense budget)"
  • "I look forward to working with Jim Cooper because he sounds to me like somebody that's really great"

This is also pretty good...a candid statement on the record by a business professor who speaks in absolutes...

  • "Scottie's one of the few people I've ever met that have never lied, cheated or stolen, or even been unethical," said Danny Fisher, an adjunct business professor at Tennessee Wesleyan College.

  • Glad we are putting our confidence in Scottie Mayfield. He seems like a sharp man who will not only survive but thrive in the shark tank that Washington has become.

Ron Bhalla (United States Congressional Candidate 3rd District TN) Has Made This Statement: "I Believe All Of The Congressional Candidates Are Good People". Ron Also Is A Good Person.

To My Knowledge, Ron Bhalla Is The Only Candidate Who Began, As An Adult, With Less Than $50.00 In His Pocket. From That Meager Amount He Went On To Build Two Very Successful Businesses In Hamilton County.

Ron Understands Economics And Everyday Needs Of The Common Working Individual. His Food Service, And, Real Estate Businesses Paid Many Paychecks To Hard Working Employees.

As A University Political Science Graduate, Ron Bhalla Understands The Ends-And-Outs Of The Political System.

Scotty will be another Fleischmann, he basically says it in his own words. You Sheep need to do some research, and not just vote on who the news tells you to vote for. If you want a Real American Candidate, look up Matthew Deniston.http://www.wrcbtv.com/story/17656413/congressional-candidate-matthew-deniston-pledges-to-not-take-customary-salary

He vows to not take the $174,000 in salary. Far as im concerned, Scotty needs to stick to Ice cream, or milk, hell they both suck and are the most unhealthy blood, and puss filled milk you can find around here. If Scotty really cared about us, he would be a RAW milk Producer, as Raw milk cant have Processed, blood, puss, and fecal matter in the milk. Dont believe me look it up. Homogenized milk has a 94% chance to have blood, puss, and fecal matter. Im afraid Scotty will use the political position, to try and shut down his competitors. Its not rocket surgery Sheeple. Just take a look at what Deniston plans to do. He is more what an American candidate is supposed to be like. http://www.wrcbtv.com/story/17656413/congressional-candidate-matthew-deniston-pledges-to-not-take-customary-salary

I want the Nevada Option.

With actual teeth.

As for Raw Milk...been there, done that. Cows do not care about a sterile environment. I'd rather have UHTP milk instead.

When Scottie Mayfield announced, I was very interested in supporting him but dodging debates does not cut it with me. If you don't have anything to say, you don't need to run. Wamp does not have enough life experience for the job in my opinion but I will listen to him in the debates. Chuck has been a go along to get along representative and boring on top of that. Ron could be the guy? I will be watching and listening. I'm not locked in to anyone yet. I would be open to a Democrat but sooner or later they vote the party line. Just like they did on healthcare.

I find it hilarious that everyone of you ignore the people that would help you most. So when you vote for someone who screws you, I don't want to hear it.
