#SweetHomeAlabama where Democrats are being taxed without representation

EYE guess everyone has seen the video of Representative Mo Brooks (R. Chicken CD5) sneaking into his own canceled republican only town hall meeting held at a church in north Alabama and heard about his refusal to meet with democrat constituents in his office. 

Evidently, Alabama's republican lawmakers only represent republican taxpayers and are using the taxpayer-funded police force to protect them from their Democratic constituents.

If EYE recall correctly there was a little thingy called the Boston Tea Party which led to the Revolutionary War to address taxation without representation.
"No Taxation Without Representation" is a slogan originating during the 1750s and 1760s that summarized a primary grievance of the American colonists in the Thirteen Colonies, which was one of the major causes of the American Revolution
If republicans lawmaters don't wake up and smell the tea EYE don't think voter suppression, gerrymandering,  Citizens United, and the Electoral College will be able to protect them the next time there is an election.  The majority of the American people voted for democrats.
As grim as the situation is for Democrats — and it is grim — it’s not going to take long for Republicans to recognize their peril. They’ve lost the popular vote in six of the past seven elections. Their president-elect is less popular than any incoming president in the history of polling. It’s the out-of-power party that tends to gain in midterm elections.
EYE am just saying...
