Marshall Adame Visits with Carteret Democrats and 3rd District’s Democratic Women

(Jacksonville, NC) Marshall Adame spoke to the Carteret County Democrats at their monthly meeting on May 1st. He spoke about the importance of consistently voting Democratic on important issues and the common misconception that Congressman Walter B. Jones, Jr. is “acceptable” to Democrats because of his shifting war stance. “Congressman Jones, Jr. is a good man, I believe that, but he’s consistently supported President Bush and the Republican Majority by voting with them when more than 86% of the time” and frankly has not been an effective representative for the 3rd District.

Marshall also attended the 3rd District Democratic Women’s Convention on May 5th in Morehead City. He spoke to the loss of global respect caused by the, historically unprecedented, U.S. acceptance of torture, elimination of certain personal privacy rights, and the “first strike” mentality held by the Bush Administration and past years of the Republican majority in Congress’. “The world thinks we are something we are not because of 6 years of reckless Republican control” he said to applause.

Adame questioned the policies of the Bush Administration, saying that they aren’t true to American ideals and beliefs; “in order to pursue the enemy, we’re becoming like him and that’s not who we are.” He also described the need for communication and diplomatic dialog. “We should not conduct war as a usual foreign policy tool.”

On May 14th, 2007, Marshall Adame will be attending the North Carolina Artificial Reef Coalition meeting at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. The event begins at 6:30pm and the program includes information on plans for building new artificial reefs off the Crystal Coast.

Marshall Adame is a retired U.S. Marine who served three years in Iraq as a Coalition Provisional Authority official and U.S. State Department Diplomat. Two of his sons served in Iraq and one was wounded in the battle of Baqubah, south of Baghdad in 2006.

that’s not who we are

“in order to pursue the enemy, we’re becoming like him and that’s not who we are.”

This is a good quote. Thanks for the post.

I absolutely agree

Torture doesnt protect freedom. Ending habeus corpus doesnt protect freedom. Accusing people who disagree with you of being traitors doesnt protect freedom.

More 3rd District News

You already knew this, but I read this morning about Jones' whacked out neocon challenger, an Air Force Academy graduate turned Army Ranger, also from J-ville.

"Having watched my congressman over the last two years become somebody I barely recognize, that's just compelled me to run," McLaughlin said. "I can't pick up a ruck anymore, but I'm running because it just cannot be that the congressman for the 3rd District, which has more troops in the fight than probably any other district in the country -- it cannot be that this congressman is standing shoulder to shoulder with the liberals in Congress."

Too bad McLaughlin is going nowhere fast. His campaign seems to be built on the promise that he'll help kill even more of the husbands, wives, sons and daughters in his district that Jones will.

It's days like this I'm embarrassed to be an academy graduate.

Come now, -A-...

No reason to be embarrassed.

I'll not say much, as the campaign will not discuss a Republican primary challenger, except to quote a few folks...

Have spoken with Joe in the past on an issue, I found him short, not a good listener. While it is good to be in disagreement and ask many questions, he generally presents himself as a rebel on many fronts. Always looking for an issue to disagree on rather than the opposite, which actually is counterproductive. A technicality after watching meetings, and my listening, and seeing the player. All adding up to a negative.


Also, in McLaughlin's role as a County Commissioner, he has shown himself to be uncooperative and unresponsive to his constituents. I doubt this would change, if he were elected to Congress.

What have YOU done today to make the world a better place?


Remind me not to go to this guy for financial planning! How'd you like to be one of HIS clients? Creepy.

im confused

I thought people who just criticized were the ideal Republican model for a congressman. If they put people with good ideas in office then they might start seeing that government can do things and then where would they be?
