This is the same delegate, by the way, who suggest that children from homes who cannot afford school meals be forced to clean toilets and do other menial labor jobs to pay for it.

He’s a far right Republican, by the way, supporting things like Star Trek (no money used, no capitalism, sorta socialist, very tolerant, no human religious dogma) and the Postman (dystopian future caused by what could be called Libertarians but the civilization is saved by a belief in the Government).
