Scott Brown is Not the Answer

This is in response to Greg’s recent post, the MassachusettsMiracle.com.

I do not support Scott Brown for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts. He is basically another Mitt Romney only he hasn’t even tried to transform himself from liberal to conservative. In 2002, Brown answered yes to the following:

“Abortions should always be legally available.”

“Support age-appropriate sexual education programs that teach about abstinence, contraceptives and HIV/STD prevention methods.”

“Ensure that citizens have access to basic health care through managed care, insurance reforms or state-funded care where necessary.”

Did NOT answer yes to the following questions on the same survey:

“Eliminate public funding for abortions and public funding of organizations that advocate or perform abortions.”

“Support displaying the Ten Commandments in public schools.”

“Endorse teacher-led voluntary prayer in public schools.”

“Guaranteed medical care to all citizens is NOT a responsibility of state government.”

“Repeal state restrictions on the purchase and possession of guns.”

I also do not support Joseph L. Kennedy, the independent in the race because he supports gay marriage. If I lived in Massachusetts, it would definitely be a “none of the above” vote for me.

If Scott gets elected, either he or some other Senator will be paid off to support the healthcare bill just as it happened before. They are all corrupt. I don’t believe that God will use votes for such an ungodly man to save us from the enslavement of Obamacare.

Matt -

You make some excellent points. I guess I did not realise how liberal he actually was. I was focused on how bad his opponent was and how bad ObamaCare would be . . . Two wrongs do not make a right . . . None of the above just might be the 'best' choice in MA . . .

Scott Brown would be a major disaster for the GOP. He's too much of a right-wing birther/teabagger loon to last in Massachusetts. But more important, if he wins, the GOP will be able to kill health-care reform, AND TAKE BLAME FOR DOING SO.

Recently, with all the Dem infighting, the Stupaks and the Nelsons, the GOP has been let off the hook a bit. If health-care fails they can say "We didn't kill it, the Dems did by failing to get along. What a bunch of losers!" But if Brown wins, everyone who has no insurance and everyone who gets shafted by their insurance companies will blame the GOP.

If Brown wins, the Dems will remain in power at least a decade longer.
