Young Republican Wants To Give Party Fresh Face In Congress, With No Scandals Or Controversies

Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D, Fla), 7th Congressional District will have her hands full with a new young voice for the Republican Party in 2020. His name is Armani Salado and let me tell you, he's hungry, he's competent and ready to represent the Republicans in Congress.

In every election cycle, we hear how the Republican Party wants to expand its tent and bring in new faces and voices, but after the election, they find themselves too busy to follow through with that agenda. Representation in Congress is null and void for minorities within the Republican party, and when you hear someone mention it, Republican voters want to remind you it's not about the color but competence.

Like an old friend of mine told me once before, "we need to mix some pepper with salt for a better taste." Congress reminds me of the military in a sense; it's who you know. A lot of individuals get into Congress or remain in Congress because of the buddy system making it hard for new young voices like Salado to walk in and give his ideas for a brighter future.

Salado is 23 years old and a student at the University of Central Florida. He will turn 25 in June 2020, and he wants to make history and become the youngest American elected to Congress, therefore beating Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sitting record. He's majoring in political science and is very confident he can unseat Rep. Murphy.

Salado wants his age to be nothing more than a number for his run for Congressional seat. He called upon a little history when explaining his youthfulness and taking on such a goal as being elected to Congress: "Some of Our Founding Fathers and leaders of creating America were men of much younger ages, doing outstanding things to better the lives for themselves, their families, their people, and their young country."

Salado says his political experience has been limited to the time he spent working for Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis' gubernatorial campaign last year.

Salado's family immigrated from the Dominican Republican to Boston, Massachusetts, where he was born. He moved to Winter Springs in 2002, where he attended elementary through high school.

He says he'll graduate from UCF next summer.

"I'm running for Congress because it's time to get new fresh faces in Washington," Salado says. "It's time to have young representatives who actually represent the demographic layout of the district they come from. It's time to have someone who will tackle real issues our communities face locally, nationally, and globally. We don't need anymore politicians with scandals, baggage, and controversies. We need young bold Statesman [sic] who won't back down under pressure." [excerpt via Orlando Weekly]

It would be nice to see Trump give him some advertising by meeting him or tweeting about him. He should get out in public and speak as much as possible, put speeches and conversations with ordinary people on social media as much as possible. That's how conservative populists are winning all over the world.

The major points of his platform are federal defunding of Planned Parenthood, free market competition in health care, and greater access to medical marijuana. One thing he has to get over is worrying about people worrying about his age. Get out there and make your mark, raise your voice and expand your base.

“It’s not impossible, but it’s tough, my only worry to be honest is that people will only attack me on my age. All I say is that I don’t have the scandals, controversies and baggage that career politicians have.”

It's always good not to have controversies or scandals to begin a political career, but the fight is maintaining that unblemished record, so you do not owe anyone, anything moving forward.

Criticize this kid if you want, but he's her only challenger at the moment. If you've got a better option, run him. If not, get behind this young man because so far, he is that district's only hope.

Let me know when GOP accomplishes this...:)

The GOP is about the only party that this young man has any real opportunity too excell... the Democrat Party is a rigged system of carefully managed members of the LEFT... socialist movement in America.  It is time for the GOP to actively engage in the recruitment of sincere conservatives.... of all colors, ethnic affilitation and backgrounds... the rich and the poor neighborhoods of America have great untapped talent looking to be discovered.

This young man may want to start at the local level ... running for office at the state level to gain recognition and the attention of those within his district that can move him along... providing the contacts, money and much needed institutional support to be successful in a political career.  High office is earned not granted. We shall see how this young man does over the next few years... and we wish him well.

ALERT ALERT

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
