Why you should support Frank DeMartini

I’m Frank DeMartini and I am running for Congress against Maxine Waters.  

For the last 28 years, Maxine Waters has been occupying a seat in Congress while accomplishing zero for the hard-working families living within her District.  

For her entire 12 terms in Congress , she has been more concerned with following the dictates of her best friend, Nancy Pelosi,  then crusading for the ever-growing needs of the people whom she is paid to represent!  After serving 28 years as a Congresswoman, the only people who seem to have benefited from her efforts have been herself and her family!

It’s time for a change!

Why me?

To begin with, I am a committed, energetic,  family man in my mid-fifties who lives every day dealing with the same challenges and issues you do; she is a woman who is almost 80 who has spent the last 28 years in Washington DC, ingratiating herself  within the “Washington Elite”, with little interest in and less time spent on the needs of her constituency!

Furthermore, as a voter, you should be asking that all important question,” How can someone who has spent her entire professional life working in government, have amassed a net worth in the millions of dollars?”

I was born in Long Island, NY to a blue collar, FDR Democrat working class family.  My father worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and when it closed, he was out of a job.  From that point forward, my dad took whatever job he could get.  His last job was as a cleaning man in a department store. My mother was an aide at the local school cafeteria.

Importantly, neither one of my parents ever voted Republican until Ronald Reagan in 1980.  They were lifelong Democrats.  It was Ronald Reagan (a former Democrat himself), that made them realize the Democratic Party no longer identified with America’s working class.  That reality has only worsened.  Maxine Waters actions have proven to be the problem, not the solution

My life may have had humble beginnings, but I was blessed with parents who recognized the importance of quality education. They worked and sacrificed to provide me access to quality-driven schools making it possible for me to graduate and build a successful career as a lawyer.

That’s why I am so committed to “school choice”, allowing parents to give their children that same educational opportunities I had. (Maxine Waters has voted against providing “school Choice” at every opportunity she could.)

I also recognize the importance of shrinking the size, scope and reach of government; reducing the federal deficits that threaten to rob our children of their futures and keeping taxes low to allow job growth.

The people of the 43rd District need someone dedicated to working for them … not against them, their families and/or their futures.

I’m Frank DeMartini and I am running for Congress against Maxine Waters.

Indigenous American Day is a Nothing-Burger!

I do not judge people from the past, especially historical figures, based upon the culture and morés of today.  That is essentially being ethnocentric.  If you do, then you have the PC culture that is slowly taking over our country right now.  Almost every one of our heroes has character flaws.  Some of those flaws would even be considered fatal to their legacy today.  

In the past few months, we have heard ad infinitum that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned slaves.  Well, for that matter, so did James Madison and James Monroe.  In fact, 10 of the first 12 presidents owned slaves – the only exceptions being John Adams and his son.

Many people consider Andrew Jackson one of the greatest presidents.  He single handedly took on the Washington establishment and “drained the swamp.”  He defeated the Bank of the United States and took down the Establishment in the process.  No one has tried this since until our current President – Donald J. Trump.  However, Mr. Jackson had many flaws.  For one, he owned more than 150 slaves.  For two, he killed a lot of Native Americans.  And, in that regard, he displaced thousands more.  In fact, you can go on about his character flaws forever.  He also like to duel.

Abraham Lincoln, the Great Emancipator and whom many consider the greatest president is quoted as saying in a letter to Horace Greeley in 1862:

“If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.”

This doesn’t sound like a man that would be revered and loved based upon today’s mores.  Does it?  He was willing to do anything to save the union.  It wasn’t just about freeing the slaves.

Confederates are another example of history being rewritten based upon today’s culture.  Yes, they were treasonous.  Yes, they owned slaves.  But, the statues of them in the South and other parts of the country are a part of our history.  It doesn’t matter whether you like it or not.  It’s true.  Robert E. Lee was thought of by President Grant as an honorable person.  He liked him even though he fought against him.  Arlington National Cemetery is Lee’s old plantation.  Should we remove Lee’s house from the cemetery because he fought against the country?  Should we remove the Southern Civil War Vets from Arlington?  Should we desecrate that sacred land because it is a reminder of Lee and the Civil War?  As President Trump said, when does it end?

Accordingly it is my opinion that people should be judged based upon the morés of the historical time period in which they lived.  And, when you based it upon that, all of these men are heroes and should be revered.

The same goes for the great Italian Explorer, Christopher Columbus. People from the PC police are condemning him because frankly, he was not a very nice guy.  In fact, by today’s standards, he was downright evil.  But it’s not today’s standards by which he should be judged.  See e.g. https://www.dailydot.com/layer...  It is by the standards of the time in which he lived.

When I grew up in New York, we looked forward to Columbus Day.  As an Italian-American, he was revered.  This was the man who was credited with discovering America.  He was a hero.  We did not know what he may or may not have done to Native Americans (Indians or Indigenous People).  We knew him as an Italian who was a great explorer.

When we went to Manhattan, we looked at the statue of him in Columbus Circle and thought, “Wow, Italians are respected in this country.”  Now, Mayor DeBlasio is considering taking this statue down because it might offend.  I don’t care.  I don’t care if DeBlasio is Italian himself.  And, and many Italian-Americans in New York feel the same as I do.  Further, many of them also happen to be elected officials.  See:  http://observer.com/2017/08/it...

Now, the City of Los Angeles, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that celebrating Columbus Day is offensive and has officially ended its existence.  The day formerly known as Columbus Day is now known as “Indigenous American Day.”  Well, I’m appalled and not only as an Italian American; mostly, because this is just another example of history being re-written or conveniently forgotten by the party in power.  I know they will get away with it because Los Angeles is so liberal no one will fight back.  But, I would love to see them try to do this in New York.  People will fight back there.  And, people must fight back every time our history is under attack regardless of where they live.

Meanwhile, I will have to celebrate Columbus Day in Los Angeles regardless of what it’s officially called.
