    Thank you for your comment then and thank you for running now!
    You are not in my district, but you will be FOR THE PEOPLE OF NC. (My congresswoman does not listen to those who do not agree with her AND she wasn’t elected in her HOME county, Watauga!! Remember her? She was the wannabe grabbing and kissing bushie like a teenie bopper after his speech to Congress! In the Chamber! AUGH! Real class, uh?
    You have given a few of us some real hope! You spoke like a stateman then – delivering the news that THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES!!! Hopefully you will not forget who you ARE and who you will represent: WE, THE PEOPLE….NOT THE CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE!
    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BEST WISHES!!!!!!!! HOPEFULLY NC HAS AWAKENED!!!!!

    Although it was courageous of you to stand up to President Bush, you made a complete and total jackass of yourself. In your lifetime, you have never been more ashamed or frightened of your leadership in Washington? I would like to see you do a better job. I seriously doubt that you could withstand the stresses of being president and I sure as hell would never vote for you. What would you have done? Sat back and let the terrorists attack us repeatedly? Good job making yourself look like a total idiot. You argue against a pro-life law because you feel as though it prohibits freedom. What about the freedoms of the unborn child? County Health Departments offer free birth control which is much cheaper than an abortion AND doesn’t require MURDER. Way to go.

    Aaron Says:

    Thank you. I only wish many more shared your point of view and the courage to challenge irresponsible leadership. Don’t give up. Many of us need people like you. You are in my thoughts.

    Hi Harry,

    Just a supporter from California here, I found the video of you linked on Reddit. Thank you, thank you so much for being able to say with grace and dignity what so many of us have wanted to tell that man.

    Bruce Harris Says:

    Well said and well spoken. You’re certainly not alone in NC, Mr Taylor. Thanks, kudos, and good luck.

    Andy from Huntersville, NC Says:

    I didn’t bother to watch any of the video clips. All I had to do is read the opening line above “In my lifetime, I have never felt more ashamed of my leadership in Washington” to realize that you’re just another ignorant classic liberal quick to criticize, but without a single workable solution. What really amazes me is how many people are so blind as to thank you. Where were you and your shame when Mr Clinton was trashing the Office of the President of the United States when he lied to Congress and the American people? And now for the first in my lifetime, we’ve got a flimflam man, 1-term Senator, who some call “evangelical”, one step away from becoming Commander-in-Chief. And as far as the immigration issue and Sue Myrick go, get your facts straight dude. None of us who oppose illegal immigration, including Sue Myrick have anything against immigrants in this country. You’d like to believe that because it makes your job easy and you can group us all together as liberals like to do. The truth of the matter is, and we’ve been trying to get this point through to folks like you for many years, the keyword is “I-L-L-E-G-A-L”. America would not be the country it is today without immigration. But it must be done legally. And there is nothing un-American about asking people who want to participate in the “American Dream” to follow rules, learn English and do whatever else is deemed required to become an American citizen. Other countries do it, why can’t we? Ever been to France? Walk into a French restaurant in Paris and if you can’t read and understand French, good luck trying to order something you recognize. One hint: escargots = snails. And if think you might like to live in Australia, if you don’t have a skill or trade that they need, they’ll let you stick around for 6 months, but after that you’re gone. Oh and let’s talk about a place closer to home. Mexico’s immigration policy is almost identical to Australia’s. Imagine that. You’ve got the Mexican government encouraging their own people to flock across the border to America while at the same time they maintain a restrictive immigration policy themselves. Why won’t you talk about these things Mr Taylor? I’ll tell you why – because you maintain your political power through deception, half-truths, character assassinations and willing accomplices in the mainstream media.

    well done bro. YOU ROCK !

    James Holbert Moor Says:

    Harry Taylor is the a good candidate and has the ability to defeat Sue Myrick.

    In reply to Paul: Fuck you! Your fucking son volunteered for the military and it was his choice to do so. So you can’t just blame the President for your son dying in a foreign country. PS. I’m not a Republican like you may be thinking, and I am against the war, so fuck you, you coward.

    We are on different sides of the world and national politics viewpoint, but you are still my fraternity brother from the ‘Gate. Best of luck to you mate on this election day 2008. I am proud of the stand you have chosen.

    Jackson Midyette Says:

    Hey andy,

    You’re totally right. I’d much rather be a conservative who DOESN’T criticize corruption and DOESN’T have a solution either. Let’s all just sit back and let the all-mighty market solve all our problems.

    You’re the ignorant one.

    Hello Mr. Taylor,

    I just read about you In Paul Rogat Loeb’s book “Soul of a Citizen” and I just wanted to thank you for speaking out at that time. You are an inspiration to my generation.
