This is a speech George Shepherd made at FRA in Orlando on 5/23/21.
I rise today to announce my Candidacy for our United States House of Representatives. As a proud American and long-term Floridian, I feel it is my duty to serve.
On September 11, 2001, our nation was shaken to its very core, but we were united, our flag was cherished, and people were proud to be Americans. Less than 20 years later, the Taliban is back in control of Afghanistan and our creditability on the world stage has been shattered. The number 1 job of the federal government is to keep Americans safe and with our southern border wide open and Afghanistan being returned to the Taliban, we are much less safe today than just a few short month ago.
Our athletes kneel for our National Anthem, our great police departments are under attack and patriotism is unpatriotic. Google, Twitter, and Facebook are challenging our 1st amendment right to freedom of speech and our voices are being silenced. Our intellectual property is being stolen by China or given away by our elected leaders to other nations.
On August 24 our current repressive Daren Sato voted yah on the 3.5 trillion-dollar budget and so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill. He looked like a kid at Christmas as he hung this massive debt around the necks of our children and grandchildren. Ironically, the name given to this new spending spree is the For the Children Act. What you may not know is that on page 7 of that bill, it authorizes 45 trillion dollars in new spending over the next 10 years on top of the 28 trillion in national debt we currently have. This is a travesty and I’m running to do something about it.
The For the People Act is nothing more than a Democrat take over our election system and why our southern border is wide open. Democrats are diluting our vote with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants being released into our country.
American want to have voter ID and another fact you won’t hear is that 96.6% of American’s have some form of government identification. You can’t get a COVID shot without an ID but for our most important rights as citizens, no ID required.
Were told that walls are immoral but in the wake of the January 6th insurrection, Nancy Pelosi put a razor wire topped fence all the way around Capitol Hill.
Ladies and gentlemen, I rise today to be 1 voice, 1 conservative fighter for truth and justice. But more importantly, 1 more conservative vote in the halls of our United States House of Representatives. We must win back majority in the house and senate. We must take our nation back.
May God bless you and may God bless the United States of America,
