Sharron Angle’s Angles

Thought I’d blog about things Sharron Angle has said since it’s close to the mid terms.

2010: Angle: “People ask me, ‘What are you going to do to develop jobs in your state?’ Well, that’s not my job as a U.S. senator.”

2010: Angle: “The Second Amendment is the right to keep and bear arms for our citizenry…This is for us…This is for us when our government becomes tyrannical…”

2010: Angle: “The Federal Department of Education should be eliminated. The Department of Education is unconstitutional and should not be involved in education, at any level.”

2010: Angle: “We needed to have the press be our friend … We wanted them to ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported.”

2010: Angle: “I’m not even sure where in the Constitution our federal government is supposed to be involved in Medicare.”

2010: Angle: “We need to phase Medicare and Social Security out in favor of something privatized.”

2010: Angle: “Whenever I say privatize I don’t mean governmental privatization. I mean actual free market privatization.” (When asked on if Social Security should be privatized.)

2010: Angle: “I hope that’s not where we’re going, but you know if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies…”

2010: Angle: “I’ll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out.” (In the same speech as the above quote.)

2010: Angle: “The whole point of an interview is to use it like they say, ‘earned media,’ to earn something with it… And I’m not going to earn anything from people who are there to badger me and use my words to batter me with.”

2010: Angle: “Not in my book.” (When answering if there’s any reason for an abortion. When asked to follow up on rape or incest she claims “God has a plan and purpose for each one of our lives.”)

2010: Angle: “No it doesn’t.” and “Thomas Jefferson was actually addressing a church and telling them through his address that there had been a wall of separation put up between the church and the state precisely to protect the church.” and “To protect the church from being taken over by a state religion. And that’s what they meant by that.” (All quotes when questioned about her views on the separation of church and state which arises out of the Constitution.)

2010: Angle: “I feel the same about legalizing alcohol.” (When asked about legalizing marijuana, she expressed her opposition and said this.)

2010: Angle: “What is a little bit disconcerting and concerning is the inability for sporting goods stores to keep ammunition in stock… That tells me the nation is arming. What are they arming for if it isn’t that they are so distrustful of their government? They’re afraid they’ll have to fight for their liberty in more Second Amendment kinds of ways. That’s why I look at this as almost an imperative. If we don’t win at the ballot box, what will be the next step?”

2010: Angle: “UN has been captured by the far left and has become ineffective and costly. The UN continually threatens US sovereignty, with endless rhetoric and treaties and it has not become the umpire on fraudulent science, such as global warming. The United States needs to withdraw from the United Nations and work solely with America’s willing allies.” (From her campaign website)

2010: Angle: “I keep hearing about Muslims wanting to take over the United States.” and “On a TV program just last night, I saw that they are taking over a city in Michigan and the residents of the city, they want them out. They want them out. So, I want to hear your thoughts about that.”

2010: Angle: “My thoughts are these, first of all, Dearborn, Michigan, and Frankford, Texas are on American soil, and under constitutional law. Not Sharia law. And I don’t know how that happened in the United States.”

2010: Angle: “I believe that there’s not sound science to back that up.” (Talking about global warming.)

2010: Angle: “I took a little criticism for it yesterday based off that I should find something good in that bill to save and there was nothing good in this law.” (Regarding the PPACA (HCR) bill of 2010.)

2010: Angle: “Right now, we say in a traditional home one parent stays home with the children and the other provides the financial support for that family. That is the acceptable and right thing to do.”

2010: Angle: “I was just saying that we are over regulating some of our industries and of course the oil and petroleum industry is one of those that we’ve been over regulating and that’s what has kept us dependent upon foreign oil and of course that dependence gets us into big trouble overseas and we need to not have that dependence, we need to come back and explore our domestic resources and take the regulation off.”
