We as a people seem to now be wondering if our Congress will ever do anything right. We saw the article posted by Tim Brown entitled “Ten New Gun Bills Introduced On First Day of Congress”. We then began reading, only to see names that looked funny doing this, so we looked up to find out just who these people are that have placed such bills on the floor of the House. Strange to say, the first one by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) is purely due to what happened to her life. Her husband was shot back in 1993; and since then, gun laws have come and gone with no difference at all made, except possibly for the worst. It has to be noted that the individual who killed Rep. McCarthy’s husband had already broken several laws, so how are any additional laws going to stop people from obtaining guns or other weapons?

The next two Representatives that introduced bills, Bobby Rush (D-IL) and Rush Holt (D-NJ), seem to have questionable pasts! It seems that Bobby Rush is a member of the Democratic “Progressive” party. Now this, by itself, brings into the picture some very concerning questions about just who is being elected to the House of Representatives. Bobby Rush is a member of a group that has very close ties to the Institute for Policy Studies and the Democratic Socialists of America. The many times-called “Progressive” party is another name for the Democratic Socialist Party of America! Now many people either seem not to be bothered by that, or they are just plain dumb! Here in lies the problem, a group of people who do not have the Constitution at heart and actually wish to destroy the Constitution. We cannot state what Representative Holt is a part of; but if Holt is with Rush, it would seem to indicate that Holt also supports the Socialist Democratic Party.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) was founded in 1991 by Bernie Sanders, a self-identified socialist who had recently been elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Sanders’ CPC co-founders included House members Ron Dellums, Lane Evans, Thomas Andrews, Peter DeFazio, and Maxine Waters. The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) was also involved in CPC’s founding and in Caucus activities thereafter; IPS continues to advise CPC on various matters to this day.
So let us look at what we have here so far: we see that at least two people here have “special’ interests at heart, and those interests have seemed to make them forget about their Oath of Office in which they swore to uphold the Constitution. Yet they are now introducing bills that are in direct conflict with the Constitution! Maybe this is why our nation is so messed up right now; we have people in office who just do not understand what the Constitution really means.
Now let us get back to Rep. Bobby Rush; now here is a real strange apple in the cart. Let us begin with the following given once again at the only site that shows the Socialists for who they are, www.discoverthenetworks.com; Bobby Rush is shown as:
