From all indications, November 2nd will usher in a major change in political orientation in Washington DC, and in state and local venues. The Democrats, having had two years of complete control of Congress and the White House, have failed miserably at curing the nation’s most pressing problems– specifically the economy, and an unemployment rate exceeding 10%. Democrats have also largely failed at local levels as well, largely because they adhere to the same philosophy as the Democrats in Congress.
Personally, I don’t understand the “logic” of the Democrats’ approach. Political affiliations and preferences aside–
1- Even with the ability to print money, you can’t get out of debt by borrowing more money.
2- Leaving our borders unsecured does not help reduce the influx of illegal immigrants.
3- Passing legislation so you can read what’s in it demonstrates that you clearly don’t know whether the cart goes before the horse or after it. In fact, it raises questions as to whether you even know the difference between something with four wheels and something with four legs.
4- The Federal government has repeatedly proven it cannot run any program efficiently. Social Security, Medicare, the US Post Office and virtually every other government-run agency or program is essentially bankrupt. Why would anyone expect a government-run health care program to be be efficient, let alone, reduce costs.
Considering these statements, it will come as no surprise that I favor the Republican candidates who wish to represent the voters of Gwinnett County. Specifically–
Rob Woodall- Georgia’s 7th Congressional District- A true conservative running against an opponent who is essentially “Obama Lite”.
Liz Carter- Georgia’s 4th Congressional District- While her opponent is concerned with the island of Guam capsizing, Carter is speaking clearly and lucidly about her ideas for fixing real problems.
BJ Pak State House District 102- A lawyer and a CPA who understands how government works, how business works, and how essential fiscal intelligence is to both
David Casas- State House District 103- The current representative for his district, his record of doing the right thing speaks for itself
Valerie Clark- State House District 104- A Republican challenger to an incumbent Democrat, she will do an excellent job of representing her district
Brett Harrell- State House District 106- Harrell has always delivered the goods for his constituents. He knows how to cut taxes and improve services at the same time. He’s done it in the past, and will again.
Will Costa- Labor Commissioner- This is a state-wide position and I’m including it here because a Gwinnett County resident (Melvin Everson) SHOULD have been the Republican candidate. With Everson out of the race, Costa is clearly a far better choice than either his Republican or Democrat opponents.
