Conservative Report Card:

Heritage Action: 46
American Conservative Union: 76
Conservative Review: 24

In spite of his position as a member of the Gang of Eight on Amnesty, Alexander was somehow able to win the Republican primary against a conservative challenger, Joe Carr, and rescue his Senate seat, but unless he moves to the right, his Senate career could be over in a few years. In the meantime, because he holds positions on very power Senate committees, particularly, the Appropriations Committee, he can still do a lot of damage in the coming years.

Biography:

Andrew Lamar Alexander, Jr. is a seventy four years old and the senior United States Senator representing the State of Tennessee. He has held that position since 2003 and is the only person to be elected to the position of governor of Tennessee and United States Senator of Tennessee.

Before Mr. Alexander was a Senator, he was the Secretary of Education of the United States. He held that position for two years from 1991 until 1993. Between the years of 2007-2012, Senator Alexander served as the Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference. Alexander was reelected for his third term as a United States Senate in 2014.

He attended college at Vanderbilt University and after graduating, attended law school in New York at the New York University School of Law. After completing his studies, Mr. Alexander started a law firm in Nashville, and several years later he, his wife and three of his friends founded a company called Corporate Child Care, Inc.

One of his friends was Bob Keeshan, who later went on to become the famous Captain Kangaroo on television. The company they started later went public and began trading on (NASDAQ) and later merged with Bright Horizons, Inc., creating the world’s largest provider of work-site daycare.

In 2015, Senator Alexander was chosen to serve as the Chairman for the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee, where he revamped No Child Left Behind.

He also serves on the subcommittee for Appropriations and he is a huge proponent of so-called “green energy.”

Alexander plays the piano. He likes both classical music, and country music. He is also an author. He and his wife Honey have been married 46 years. They have four children, eight grandchildren and a dog named Rufus. Both are active in the Presbyterian church where Mr. Alexander is an elder.

      Most of the people have become too comfortable in their positions. Too much power and authority without any accountability for their votes or what their actions do the people they are responsible to in their districts!

    Before he was elected to the Senate, he was a decent person with values and someone could believe in him to do the right thing. You can see what a dose of Washington does to a person. It is time for term limits …..TODAY, and a RECALL vote TOMORROW.

    “You don’t know how good it is until it’s gone… I’m tired of the deceit, the lies, the deception!”

    “We the People” have allowed all branches of our government to be taken over by Euro-Socialists
    and GOP politicians who are a hybrid of potted plants and village idiots. I
    agree that this regime needs to be prosecuted, even persecuted, but there is no
    one to accomplish that except individual Patriots.

    The biggest threat to our nation is BHO…. and his phone and pen and…his high turnover
    rate for accountability!

    From a Corporate perspective… turnover of 27 employees in
    21 United States President Cabinet level positions 128% would be considered
    excessive or completely “out of control”!

    Cabinet turnover is an easy way to take any issue off the table until it goes away or completely
    disappears… or never let a good crisis go to waste and so on, and so on, and….

    From the suffrage and the holding of appointed office are excluded idiots and insane
    persons and all those who have been convicted of treason, embezzlement,
    malfeasance in office, bribery or larceny, or any crime involving moral
    turpitude and punishable under the laws of the state by imprisonment in the
    penitentiary – this last disqualification, however, is removable by a pardon
    for the offense. (SEE a pattern here?)

    We have a “Lame Duck President” with nothing to stop him from assaulting our Constitution and pardoning the guilty?

    Just like Bill Clinton did in 2001 on his last day in office.

    “When you find yourself on the side of the majority, and nothing is changing for a God fearing America, it’s time to pause and reflect.”
