WELCOME TO THE LANKFORD FOLLIES.
YOU SHOULD BE GLAD HE ISN’T RUNNING THE STATE GOP
When people elect a person to represent them in the U.S. House or Senate, we expect them to represent us fully despite their individual personal believes especially during the times of a national crisis. When they allow their own beliefs to interfere with the welfare of the people, they represent then other elements are involved. It could be just their own beliefs, or it could be money for their next campaign. That is not what we are here to decide. This article is on some of the various ways that Senator Lankford has made critical errors that do not represent the values of Oklahomans.
We begin with this video from July 3rd of this year where he is walking back a previous statement he made about getting rid of Columbus day. We are not going to argue the point with him except to say both him and all of those arguing for getting rid of it leave one particularly important fact out. There is scientific evidence that the Vikings discovered America a few centuries before Columbus.
We next found this article where Senator Lankford criticized the President on the way he separated children from parents. You can read the article here. It seems to us that anyone with any cursory idea of the situation would realize that the family separation policy was initiated by the Obama administration. It happened while Senator Lankford was in office. Maybe he should study some of the last administrations directives to give him a better understanding.
We next went to this site and looked at his Wikipedia page. There is a lot of good information on this page. You can get a lot of information on his background.
We then found this article that shows that the Senator is against gun control and raising taxes. Both those items we can agree with him on.
