Local candidates seeking state offices are representing their political parties.
Their bravery and selflessness in seeking office is to be commended.
Of those seeking office as Democrats, in addition to local issues, their party is on record favoring big government, limited individual freedoms, pro-choice (abortion at any stage of pregnancy), and easy access to social programs with increasingly artificial means-testing, such as ever-lengthening jobless benefits.
Democrats foster prolonged adolescence, delayed or absent individual responsibility and an increased desire for a “nanny state.” They suggest “government knows best” and can solve all our problems. All that it requires is an ever-increasing portion of our money to facilitate the process. They have found constitutional allowances for all these activities. The more notorious local Democratic spokesmen have found reason to exclude mention of Jesus and prayer at college graduation.
They have found fault with one candidate’s discussion of her legislative activities, given, at the congregation’s request, from the lectern of some area churches. They cite the “Magna Carta,” the “Mayflower Compact,” and constitutions of Montana and the United States of America as authority for their remonstrations.
I believe the Republican candidates stand in marked contrast as they espouse belief in individual responsibility, in personal individual compassion, as opposed to the state financed multisocial programs. They are firm in their regard for the “right to life,” without abandoning the woman in crisis. They believe in limited government, decreased spending, limited taxation, educational excellence, oversight of our state and national governmental fiduciary activities and investments, job reation and job retention. They have expressed a personal belief in a higher authority. They recognize that from the Prologue of the Code of Hammurabi until our current Congress, there is acknowledgment of the existence of and our dependence upon a Divine Being and the necessity of his divine mercy and guidance. This is illustrated by the First Prayer of the Continental Congress, the opening prayer House of Representatives Jan. 5, and the opening prayer of the House of Representatives on Jan. 12.
If you favor intrusive big government, higher taxes, loss of private-sector jobs, reduced encouragement for entrepreneurial activities, state sponsored health care, state control on pharmaceutical development and pricing, state sponsorship of attacks on the womb, increased application of eminent domain and support of draconian energy and economic policies, increased wage and bonus caps, increased governmental jobs, increased influence of labor unions and government workers unions, promoting a more secular and socialistic society, then by all means, vote for Democratic candidates for state offices.
