My name is Deric Houston, and I’d like to know if you’re tired of winning yet?
Since 2016, we’ve been barraged by half-truths and bald-faced lies. A “disputed” election, which the former president turned into an attempted coup – the guy is still running for president in 2024 – and despite 91 indictments across federal and state jurisdictions, Marjorie Taylor Greene still fully supports him. It’s time to tell Marjorie Taylor Greene that we’re tired of her games, her hate, and her divisiveness. She came on the scene and quickly attached herself to MAGA, taking advantage of the former president’s fanbase, and using the disinformation they had been fed to stoke anti-American values; fear of anyone different from us, hate within families and friends, and generally making us look foolish, both nationally and internationally.

Georgia has a long and proud history (though not always right), and Marjorie Taylor Greene does not reflect that pride, nor the views of Georgia. 

First and foremost, there are issues that are incredibly divisive right now, and I’m going to tell you where I stand – and will not waver – right here, front and center:

  1. Abortion – This is a medical issue and a person’s right to choose what to do with their body is absolute. Neither State  nor Federal government has a place in the discussion between a woman and her doctor about an unwanted or unviable pregnancy.
  2. Guns – As Americans, in general, we fetishize guns to a point that we now value them over the lives of children. Just take that in for a moment. There are millions of people who believe that unfettered and unrestricted access to guns is more important than protecting children. There were “only” 37 school shootings in 2023, down from 51 in 2022. We cannot afford to continue trying to treat the problem with “thoughts and prayers”.
  3. Education – You’ll see me mention truth and candor a lot throughout the site, but here, I’m specifically talking about truth in education. We cannot allow our history to be whitewashed to protect fragile egos  in denial of America’s actual history, from which we have many lessons to remember

“Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.” – George Orwell, “1984”

More Issues than a News Stand

"If you stand for nothing,
you'll fall for anything.

I’ve changed up the issues page to make it easier to get to what you’re looking for. Also, I’ve added a lot of issues to the list (+/- 30) and you can get started with a topic below, or start here

SUPPORT OUR CAMPAIGN
Of, By and For the People

In Congress, I will fight to end political corruption, increase government transparency, and hold leaders of both parties accountable. I’m committed to protecting American taxpayers and eliminating waste, fraud, and abuse.

Politicians have earned a reputation for being liars, cheats, and thieves. I  promise to always be transparent (within the scope of the law) and will make it more difficult for coverups, back-room deals, or even creating and maintaining a whole different persona!

How effective can a lawmaker be if they’ve been in office so long that they don’t remember what it’s like NOT to be? How many of our congressmen and women have created themselves a comfortable position where they just have to sit back and collect money, while the lobbyists THEMSELVES write the bills? 

How many have been in Washington for so long that corruption is the status quo, and any new blood elected is more likely to get swept into that corruption than to defeat it.

Why is it that every time the republicans can’t manage a budget, they want to go after the benefits we’ve all been paying for since we were children? 

Why should we have to pay for their ineptitude? 

Social Security is not a slush fund to be raided whenever the GOP needs to give the top 1% another tax cut.

Are you a first-time voter? Have you moved recently? Do you just want to make sure you haven’t been ‘accidentally’ purged from the voter roles? 

Check to make sure that everything is ready for the primary elections in May! https://vote.gov

We know that when Democrats show up to vote, we win the races, we just have a problem showing up (even if it’s sometimes out of our control). Until we can make voting day a national holiday, where everyone gets time from work to vote, we need to work together to make sure that every voice is heard!

Donate to the Cause

(please?)

Running a campaign isn’t cheap, and I’m not going to sell your voice to anyone. Of course, that means raising money takes a little more time and effort, but being able to face myself – in the end – is worth it.

I can tell you all day about the terrible things that the MAGA army have done in Congress Whether it be on the chamber floor, or in committee, the GOP’s commitment to chaos would be impressive, if it weren’t so dangerous. This is the page where I will link to as many videos as I can, (without stealing them from content creators).  I don’t add to these nearly as often as I’d like, but if I see an uptick to that page, I’ll dedicate more time to it, deal?

Here’s a bit of what you’ll find there:
