It seems that by now we should all grasp Rep. Shuler’s accomplishments and gravitas after his four years on the job and the tremendous amount of national media attention he’s received. I have seen some of the “big win” items that Shuler lists on his website. I’ve learned about his “mountain values,” and I’ve been monitoring his public statements.
I actually feel that Shuler sincerely believes he is doing God's work on our behalf. Indeed, he and many of his supporters might one day publicly claim as much. As a taxpayer and citizen, for some reason, I like to see politicians actually prove their various activities are beneficial for the greatest number of their constituents.
It may be that one day soon we will all catch the Shuler vision and internalize his infectious sense of humor and finally see the upside of Shulertarianism or whatever. Until I wake up to all that, I feel citizens of North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District should consider new representation in the U.S. House.
I've written something I call the "Citizen Memorandum Regarding the Shuler Stratagem" (citizensfornc11.tumblr.com ). I helped lead the way for Shuler, but now I have limited interest in politics these days. I especially hope I never have to read anything about Shuler or have to try to track him forming thoughts on TV. Few of us can afford to spend time on such things. There’s one exception: Shuler’s 2012 Democratic primary concession speech.
Good luck if you want credible representation for the district you live in.
