Dear Republicans,

Attached below are the details of two great oportunities to be involved in the health care debate that is sweeping the nation and your opportunity is happening right here in Lexington county!  We have a chance to get some national press by showing the main stream media that an elected representative is treated respectfully if he will only represent his constituents and read the bills.  Please come out and support Rep. Joe Wilson on the evening of August 20th and Senator Demint on the morning of August 21st.  Let’s make sure that we have more people supporting them at these events than opposing them.  I am still trying to arrange a Q&A dinner with them sometime soon but we can see them this week and support them as they continue the fight against socialized health care.

I hope to see you all there.  As always if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at 803-996-1600.

Sincerely,
Rich Bolen, Chairman
Lexington County Republican Party
PO Box 1346
Lexington, SC 29071

    Hope SC is proud of a “congressman” who shouts out from the safety of the crowd. Maybe it will kill healthcare and more people like my sister-in-law will die because our healthcare system is broke. Your thoughts are appreciated and should be considered but not when you act to cut down our president to help your rank among your party.

      Joe Wilson ..you are a sad case of leadership..what gives you the right to think that you can speak for all of the American people. I as an American I totally disagreed with you and feel you should not only apologize to our President but to the American people as well.. for your faltering way. Many of us supports our President of the UNITED States and his Health Plan. Many of us deal with family medical tragery everyday..and have to deal with falling through the cracks of this current broken Health System in place. Humble yourself and speak out when appropriate.

        What do you think Obama is doing? I am tired of taking care of bus loads of illegals being bus into Richmond Va from different towns for free health care at taxpayers expense. They drop babies like mice.They do not know how to raise children. Children are survivors. Our country is pushing spanish on us.If you live in US , speak our language.
        Virginia is loaded with illegals.The court system is
        jammed up with no drivers license,DUI.s,robberys,stabbings,etc.
        Health Care3? Send them back to their countries.

    Dear southern bigot,
    Go [Expletive] yourself.

    I’m a retied businessman, founder and owner of a national corporation, the focus of a one hour national television program on Bill Moyers Journal on PBS, and a proud LIBERAL Democrat. I also happen to be white.
    The incredible disrespect for our President, once again from a southern biogot, is not unexpected, just sad to see. In the words of our former [Expletive] Vice President Cheney to Senator Leahy, on the senate floor, “Go [Expletive] yourself.”

    Mr. Wilson! You not only are a disgrace to the republican party, you are a disgrace to the United States Congress. To hold an office in the congress of the United States Of America and show so little respect for the president of The Ubited States is appalling and you should be impeached immediately. Shame on you Joe Wilson! You are a disgrace!

    Sad to see that the people of South Carolina are being represented in the senate by such an immature man. I bet he does not have any good ideas for the the poor or uninsured or underinsured people of SC. Whether he likes the president or agree with him or not he should have a little more respect for someone while they are speaking.
    Wilson, you are a very disrespectful man with very poor public behavior. If you have any education at all USE IT in a constructive way.

So if you want to contribute our debt to someone before you hop on the ban wagon to become an obama hater get your facts straight. Obama’s been in office for nine months now our deficit nor the state of our country became that way over night. It would be real refreshing for those who are racist, or simply against Obama period to put all of that to the side and look at the real picture and judge him without your prejudice pre concieved notions. Why the hell aren’t you people questioning or throwing as much energy as you have to tear Obama down into holding Bush accountable for his actions????

    You, Mr. Wilson, and those who support you and think your act was “funny” or “inspiring” are low-life cowards and are a embarrassment to the mandate of public office and decorum. You prefer to engage in publicity stunts and name-calling instead of serious public debate and cooperation. It disgusts me that we have such a man in public office, regardless of party. (I am an independent and am sick of the way politicians on both sides of the aisle are telling lies and holding this legislation up rather than doing any real reform work.)

      Paul is correct.

      You should admit your prejudice and move on/learn from it. The best course of action for you, politically, ethically, morally, would be to RESIGN YOUR POSITION and allow yourself to grow from this experience.

      It has been a long-standing tradition from South Carolina to shout-down “uppity negroes”; it’s way past time to change that. Take the first step, Mr. Wilson: RESIGN.

      The repercussions of you not resigning will be myriad. Not the least of which would be the ongoing strife between the races, followed by the voluntary rejection of doing inter-state business with a state who advocates such behavior.

    Sir, you are correct, Obama did lie to the American people and to Congress.

    You may be one of the few Representatives who remembers that the American people sent you there to represent us.

    In spite of the heat you will now receive, you spoke the truth and did it with the passion we expect of those charged with protecting our freedom.

    You are truly a horrid reflection of SC. Since when in society has it ever been ok to privately or publicly disrespect the President of the United States??? Your outburst last night warranted a thought within to denounce being from SC. We already are picking up the flack and dealing with the gaffs of our other elected official Gov. Sanford; and now WE’RE SUBJECTED to ridicule from your humiliating performance. It questions the leadership that we have representing our state, and causes some to wonder what’s the real reason you and others refuse to respect PRESIDENT OBAMA????????? When former President G.W. Bush proposed laws that didn’t hold people accountable and were known failures & fallacies as they passed through the house, there were never loud or blatant responses of disrespect objecting such proposals. Not only do I want you to do something to rectify the situation, I also want you to speak with some of your other republican constituents who were twittering, texting, and holding up signs during his speech. Watching you all was nostalgic of watching a class of middle school students listening to Ben Stein lecturing on the history of etymology. Plain and simple I’m declaring that I want better representation from my state, and you proved last night that you are not the one!!!!!!!!! REMOVE YOURSELF IMMEDIATELY!!!

    Sincerely,
    A succeeded citizen from the state of SC until you resign!!

        Bridgette:

        I send you this reply with the utmost respect.

        Please take a few minutes and look into what the current health bills says about service to those who are not Americans. You will find a very sad reality that the American people were told a very cleaver lie. I cannot express the sorrow I feel that Rep. Joe Wilson is correct, Obama did lie.
        Please don’t take my word, or anyone else’s word for this, go look for yourself. I must warn you though, it will be very disappointing.

      • Bridgette Frazier permalink
        September 10, 2009 9:40 am

        That’s simply not what the bill says at all. This page includes “SEC. 152. PROHIBITING DISCRIMINATION IN HEALTH CARE,” which says that “[e]xcept as otherwise explicitly permitted by this Act and by subsequent regulations consistent with this Act, all health care and related services (including insurance coverage and public health activities) covered by this Act shall be provided without regard to personal characteristics extraneous to the provision of high quality health care or related services.” However, the bill does explicitly say that illegal immigrants can’t get any government money to pay for health care. Page 143 states: “Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.” And as we’ve said before, current law prohibits illegal immigrants from participating in government health care programs.

    Well again JOhn the only reality for me is that people either don’t care to hear the truth or they understand the wording in the bill(and if that’s the case say that the wordign confuses you and you want clarification) but here’s the truth on that situation: Read, reread, and then paraphrase:

PROHIBITING DISCRIMINATION IN HEALTH CARE,” which says that “[e]xcept as otherwise explicitly permitted by this Act and by subsequent regulations consistent with this Act, all health care and related services (including insurance coverage and public health activities) covered by this Act shall be provided without regard to personal characteristics extraneous to the provision of high quality health care or related services.” However, the bill does explicitly say that illegal immigrants can’t get any government money to pay for health care. Page 143 states: “Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.” And as we’ve said before, current law prohibits illegal immigrants from participating in government health care programs.

    Mr. Wilson.
    I am so proud of you for your comment last night at Obama speech. I am from the state of Virginia.
    There is no need to apologe . We need more people like you in Washington. You have my vote for next President.
    I am very upset with Mr. McCain for his remarks.
    I see why he did not become president. I voted for him.
    I do not trust Obama and he is not my president.

    I am very proud of the congressman; he said what so many of us know to be true. I wish there were more politicians that had his courage! We need our country back, we need small government…we don’t need socialism, marxism, tyranny, or Obama. We need the Constitution!!!

    When some of you S.C. morons get past your McCarthyism fears and start seeing beyond black, you’ll understand that our president is doing what is best for our country. Lord, how your legislators have embarrassed your state. Wilson should bury his head in the sand for his comments. That means he would have to remove it from his…..

      Why do all you libs use the RACE CARD for everything? We don’t care that the President is black. What we worry about is that he is RED! He says one thing, but does another. If he really cared about the people’s healthcare, why isn’t he taking on the trial lawyers with tort reform? His mention of trying some “studies” on tort reform was only a way to appease the millions calling for tort reform, while he has never actually done anything about it. His weak statement last night indicates that it was only lip service and that nothing will be done which could possibly offend the scumbag trial lawyers. I’ll believe Obama is trying to help the American People when he actually DOES something to help them. So far he has only made things worse- MUCH WORSE.

        Obama is not black. He is black and white. Remember he did have a mother and she was white.
        The blacks are claiming him as a black man.
        Oreo cookies are black and white.
        I am ashambed that Obama was elected President.
        I want Mr. Wilson to run for president.

    Thank you Joe for saying what millions of Americans know to be the truth. I must have called Obama a liar at least a dozen times during the speach. Anyone listening and using their brain can see that most of what Obama was saying was not the truth. Add millions to the system without increasing costs or the number of medical professionals? Impossible. Pay for it by cutting over $500 billion in fraud and waste from Medicare and Medicaid? If they could do that, why haven’t they already? With Dr. Death (Ezekiel Emmanuel) as his chief medical advisor, how can anyone NOT believe that health care will be rationed and that millions of seniors will have their lives end early as a result. Yes we need healthcare reform, but this bill is AWFUL. It needs to be scrapped and have Congress start over. Tort reform should be issue #1, followed by removing barriers which prevent insurance companies from competing across state lines. I have to keep an address in another state or my insurance premiums will increase by 250% for the same coverage. How crazy is that?

    You libs ( or is the PC term now “Progressives”?)obviously have no logical arguments to defend Obama because the only thing you can do is call anyone who disagrees with him a racist. I know dozens of people who are opposed to Obama’s agenda. Some of them are black and NOT ONE is a racist. We are not against him because of his skin color. We are against him because of his agenda which is ruining our great nation. Your constantly using the race card is doing more to damage race relations than anything else. Obama IS A LIAR. The fact that he is also a partially black one is irrelevant.

      Greg:

      I’ve been wondering something for awhile.
      The accusation of “Racist” is used as a method to shut someone up and not allow their message to be heard. What if all of us just accepted the label and gave it about as much concern as being called jive turkey or white bread?

      What would happen if the accusation no longer meant anything to whites?

    Hooray, hooray, hooray! One honest politician “stands up” for the truth! The truth has finally been spoken on Capitol Hill! For anyone to expect “respect and decorum” on Capitol Hill, one must bring the same to Capitol Hill and not use it as a forum to lie to the citizens of the United States and continue the deceitful agenda! Senator/President Obama has continually lied throughout the Presidential campaign and continues his deceitful ways at a very high cost to the citizens of the USA and to the peril of the United States itself. Obama gives allegiance to foreign governments and goes to Capitol Hill disrespectfully and denigrates those hallow halls! Hooray, hooray, hooray to a respectful true American, Congressman Joe Wilson; a true patriot. You and your actions this day will survive the test of time and vindication will be yours. Let all those “nay Sayers” eat-crow in their own time. Continue your good work and welcome to the politics of the 21st Century. Thank you for your service to United States of America. Truth has clearly been spoken on Capitol Hill on this day in history! Please prepare for the unjustifiable retribution that will surely follow and please weather the storm steadfastly. There are many “true Americans” in the United States of America standing with you! Thank you for carrying the Light that has been so ever increasingly dimmed by anti-Americans for so many years! Speak out America! Freedom of speech and truth is the corner-stone of the American way! Hooray, hooray, hooray! Bravo, bravo, bravo! Congressman Joe Wilson; we salute U

    I just wished you didn’t apologize for saying the TRUTH.

    American at Last, American at Last, Thank God all mighty, American at Last!!! Spoken like a true American Congressman Joe…let the chips fall where they will! A LIE changes with each passing minute; the TRUTH prevails forever! Time will be your vindicator, Joe! President Joe Wilson!!! If the shoe fits, wear it!!! I am proud to be an American this day; Joe has stood-up for what it is to be American! President Obama expected to breeze into a controlled, captive audience and the restrained television public on Capitol Hill and the brought the wool to place over everyone’s eyes! Well he met the Heart of America on Capitol Hill waiting for him! The the Wolf was sent home with his tail between his legs with one word! Bravo!

      Hey moron, it was Joe Wilson who apologized for his outburst. All that resulted is that he embarrassed himself, his party and the U.S. congress. When he yelled “lie” he gave you a hook to hang on to. You would grasp at any excuse to oppose the president without ever considering what is best for the country. Michael Moore’s film perfectly describes your thinking, Sicko”

        Mr. WAilson did not embarrass himself. He is tired of sitting and hearing liars from a man that is playing president. Obama is not mature enough to understand he will never get his boyish dreams .It takes a real man to run the country, not a little boy

    Cheers for Congressman Joe Wilson (Soon to be President) a man for our times, and perhaps, a savior for our souls and our dear USA! you have hit the beast where it hurts the most and it is reeling in pain. Undoubtedly, this may very well be blow that puts him out of his political misery and restores sanity to our country. Again, if some people think the USA is bad, go live in another country! If some people think health care is bad in USA, get health care in another country!! and experience what is really bad! Ignorance is bliss!

    freemont chuck are you conscious????????????Obama;s approval rating for health care went up almost 3o percent and even people in wilsons own party denounces his sophomoric behavior!!!!!! Since we do we applaud disrepect to protocol??? I guess the guy who threw a shoe at bush should be vindicated?, or the guy who tried to assassinate reagan should be congratulated because he was representing the frustrations of America citizens who disapproved of Reagan??????? Hell no that’s not OK wrong is wrong and you do not disrepect the office of presidency, or any individual for that matter. Whose shouted out Wilson in Sc for his lack of action on improving sc 40% drop out rate, etc. Wake the fuck up people quit commending people when they make an ass out of themselves to embarass someone who doesn’t deserve it. So maybe you saw another speech last night; but the one I saw showed a brilliant, resilient, mature, PRESIDENT, who did not give in to the evils of ignorant……………and the winner is…………PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What you say about respecting the President is hard to argue with. However, just a few months ago when Bush was President it seemed that anything could be said about him, in any forum, and it was okay.

    What has changed now?

    Did you actually sit through the entire showing of Sicko? You definitely have a strong stomach.

    Honesty, truth, democracy, accountability, respectability, etc., is what is good for America. Hopefully, the next election will provide those things for us all because it definitely did not occur after the last election!

    Congressman Wilson,
    In the last few Congressional elections I had not voted, voting instead for the Constitution or Libertarian Party. However, the boldness with which you spoke out against Obama during the address has assured that you will be getting my vote in the upcoming re-election cycle and beyond. Good work standing up for American Citizens against the privations caused by a Preisdent and Congress who think that American citizens will believe anything and sit idly by while their country is destroyed from within.
