wmv video Anybody ever met with your Congressman?

A month and a half or so back I went on Louie Gohmert's website and sent and email about how disgusted I was with what is happening in Washington and asked if there was anyway that I could meet with the Congressman during the summer recess. A day or so later I got a return email thanking me for contacting him and didn't know if that would be possible. A few days after that I got a call from one of his Washington interns and explained how ****** I was that the Republicans couldn't pull together to do the things that they were elected to do from the last election- had him on the phone for 15 or 20 minutes. They have the House, the Senate, and the Presidency and can't get anything done- the Democrats would be passing the most insane bills given the same situation and dare Trump to veto them. Lo and behold I get an email yesterday saying that they have set up an appointment with Congressman Gohmert on Sept. 19 at his district office in Tyler. I have to fill out a form saying what I want to meet about and who would be at the meeting and they will confirm the meeting. I am hoping this isn't some kind of political runaround- Congressman Gohmert is one of the few in Washington that seems to have a level head on his shoulders. I am humbled at the opportunity but excited to have my voice heard.

I think he and Cruz are two of the best up there. That's not saying much tho. I don't understand what the problem is either, except they all have the same agenda just tell us a different story.

I bugged mine enough that when he returned my call it started "Hi Johnny it's Gene"

Pretty much gave up on him during the Obama years..........

You are correct. Gohmert is one of the good ones. I'm very interested to hear your follow-up. Good job getting in.

I met Pete Olsen once. The guy was so scatterbrained he can barely put a coherent sentence together. Maybe he was just having a off night but I left there thinking, "What a Squirrel".

All the time . No big deal......they work for you! I've met with Gohmert twice. Once in DC and in Lufkin last year. Easy to visit with.

I have been to many town halls about various issues. One congressman has been a long time R conservative. He pretty much just tells you what republicans like to hear. Then does what the globalist R and D's get told to do. Like most politicians he is absolutely useless.

The other group is mostly made up of Resist terrorist that would sell the constituents down the river at any chance to expand the globalist agenda.
