Bob McNeil Truly Fights for Us.
By Bob McNeil
My campaign for U.S. Senator from Texas is gaining momentum. Stephen “Nosbigs” Gibson, my campaign manager, is volunteering his time, working day and night to reach out to his high-level contacts to help me gain name recognition and secure donors for much-needed contributions. My social media team is performing beyond my wildest expectations, creating memes, writing articles, and flooding Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn with on-point content.
But, it is my duty to distinguish myself from my opponents in this campaign.
The Republican incumbent is 47 year-old, Canadian-born, Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz – lawyer, long-time government employee and former Solicitor General of the State of Texas. He was first elected U.S. Senator in 2012 and now has 5 years of voting history open for examination, a 2016 Presidential campaign to study for character and demeanor, and a list of sponsored/co-sponsored legislation to evaluate to determine his effectiveness during his first term. On the issue of tax policy, Ted has chosen to fall in line with the Republican “establishment” in support of our 100+ year-old progressive income tax system.
The Democrat candidate is expected to be 45 year-old Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, a fourth-generation Irishman, and son of deceased El Paso County Judge Pat Francis O’Rourke. Beto is a co-founder of Stanton Street Technology, an internet services and software company, former member of the El Paso City Council from June 2005 to June 2011, and current U.S. Representative for the 16th District, which includes the city of El Paso and surrounding area. Robert adopted the nickname “Beto” to appeal to the large Hispanic population of El Paso, which is located on the western tip of Texas, bordering Mexico and New Mexico. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, D.C., however, Beto has a problem. The Hispanic Caucus won’t allow him to be a member because he is “not Hispanic enough”.
Neither of these candidates has placed his life or freedom at risk for the cause of liberty, as I have.
PLACING MY LIFE AT RISK
In 1968, as the Vietnam War raged, I pledged my life to defend my country from enemies, both foreign and domestic, when I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, at the age of 19. During my 6 years of service, I was meritoriously promoted to the rank of Sergeant (E5) and, in 1974, received an Honorable Discharge.
Neither Ted Cruz, nor Beto O’Rourke, served in the military.
PLACING MY FREEDOM AT RISK
Since the year 2000, I have increasingly placed my freedom at risk to restore the Rule of Law to America in a battle against IRS fraud in the enforcement of the income tax. Over the years, I have clashed with Revenue Officers, IRS attorneys, Tax Court judges, Department of Justice attorneys, and Federal judges for the sole purpose of ending this fraud and defending myself against those who have twisted and misapplied the law, and confiscated my property.
In April of 2017, a federal District Court judge went so far as to order a permanent, nationwide injunction against me, and a friend of mine, to prohibit us from filing, or assisting others from filing, additional lawsuits to stop the IRS from falsifying its records, and to stop the Department of Justice attorneys from using those falsified records to prosecute, convict and imprison otherwise innocent Americans.
We face the possibility of being found in contempt of court, based on a Department of Justice attorney’s false claim that we violated the injunction when we filed two unrelated lawsuits. The judge has ordered us to travel from Texas to Washington, D.C. and appear in his courtroom on March 1, 2018 for a hearing to show cause why we should NOT be held in contempt of court.
Our fate rests safely in God’s hands, therefore, we have no fear of the outcome.
