Dearest Father in Heaven,
I haven't been a very good child. I should visit you more often in church and call more often in prayer. Thank you for always being there for me in spite of my weaknesses.
As you know, Lord, our country is about to hold another election. It seems like the forces of Marxism and despair are all around us so I pray that you will guide the hearts of your people in America to vote for leaders who believe in Liberty and will have the courage to oppose Marxism.
I trust in your infinite wisdom so if that is not your will then please give me the strength to endure the financial and social disasters that will follow in the footsteps of Marxist leaders gaining more power.
I pray this in the name of your son, my savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
The Happel-Doyle debate of 10-21-14 provided numerous statements by Doyle, the worst was his party-line statement that 300,000 would be denied voting with the ID law. Citizens for Responsible Government (CRG) has advertised for two years asking ANYONE in La Crosse County who couldn't get proper ID, contact us for assistance. We have not had anyone, note, no one request help. If Doyle were such a great bipartisan Democrat, he surely would have found a way to get at least one of them to contact us. Could it be that he doesn't want them to be identified?
"Political cynicism thrives when sound economics are asked to give way to liberal wish fulfillment."
Amen to that. The people who are pushing for an increase to minimum wage are wrong in much the same way they were wrong about Obamacare. They said we would be able to keep our insurance plans but now many of us are losing the coverage we once had. They said we would be able to keep our doctors but now many of us are forced to choose new doctors that fit inside our new plans. They were so focused on Utopian fantasies of universal health care that they failed to recognize the reality of how their interference in the market would impact the real world.
An old friend recently asked me if I could summarize Republican ideas for him and how the Tea Party fits into the story. Here's how I replied:
here are a few of the high points why i joined the Republican Party back in 2000...
1) History of the party: Freeing the slaves is why the party was born. Basic principle that individuals are endowed by our Creator with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and that individuals should not be lumped into 'constituencies' by the government.
2) Republicans, traditionally, believe in less government. Individuals are far better at knowing what their own needs are than a bloated government trying to dole out entitlements in broad brushes. This comes out in tax policy. Republicans believe taxes should be low so people can keep more of the money that they work for. If they then choose to give that money to charities then - great! But the government should not confiscate our money for that purpose.
