Congressman Mark Meadows spoke at a town hall meeting at Roberson High School in Skyland yesterday. He said at least three things unlike anything I expected to hear from a Congresscritter in my lifetime, and Meadows has earned my highest respect as a consequence.

Mark Meadows [said] that he would support shutting down the government to stop Obamacare.

Meadows said he does not fear economic decline with a shutdown because the federal government does not create jobs.

He said he would not support new restrictions on guns.
