The Democratic National Campaign Committee under the signature of James Carville sent out the following misinformation in their latest fund-raising emailing … trying to scare their supporters into sending more cash contributions.
“Here's the caliber of political thought we'll get in the Senate if we don't fight back NOW:
- Christine O'Donnell, Sarah Palin's pick in
, thinks [homosexuals and lesbians] suffer from mental illness. Delaware
- Rand Paul in
doesn't think businesses should be forced to serve members of the public they don't like. Kentucky
- Ken Buck in
might be the ultimate Tea Partier. He even supports repealing the 17th Amendment. You know, the one that lets people elect their own senators. Colorado
- Sharron Angle in
is so committed to the Tea Party cause, she's suggested the possibility of armed insurrection if conservatives don't win at the ballot box. Nevada
- At least five Republican Senate candidates -- including all of those listed above - oppose a woman's right to choose, even in cases of rape and incest.
“In a normal year, these dangerous views might be enough to keep them out of office. But this ain't a normal election year. Tea Party groups are spending millions nationwide, and there's more money where that came from. Karl Rove's American Crossroads, for example, gets a whopping 91% of its money from a handful of billionaires. So much for "grassroots anger."”
Mr. Carville, don’t forget about
- Joe Miller in
who defeated a sitting incumbent RINO Alaska
- Marco Rubio in
who trounced the once popular Governor Republican in Democrat skin Charlie Crist Florida
These six Tea Party principled patriots would really shake up the Senate, not to mention the lethargic, good ole boy, Rove-ing, go-along-to-get-along Republican Party. We would have a small band of true conservatives standing on the equally important 3 legged stool – social issues, fiscal issues, and national defense issues.
Homosexual and lesbian behavior is immoral, unnatural, and generally unhealthy for individuals and for society as a whole. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a mental illness as you allege Christine O’Donnell as saying, but it is at least morally reprehensible at best.
Dr. Rand Paul may be on to something. Demanding or forcing a photographer to take an assignment for which he or she would violate his or her conscience or religious convictions is wrong. There is a case out west where a business is being sued by the state for doing just that. Forcing a business to hirer someone opposed to the mission, purpose of a business should be the rights of the business owner and not the dictates of the state.
I concur with candidate Ken Buck that the 17th Amendment should be overturned. The Senate is an elitist club detached from little if any accountability.John McCain is a perfect example. He touts a certain set of principles at election time and in many cases votes the opposite on the Senate floor. Amnesty is one example that comes to mind. The Founders were wise in having the State Legislatures select the Senators. There is more allegiance to the individual states, and therefore much more accountability.
I am very doubtful that Sharron Angle ever called for an armed insurrection. But after the stealth coup de tat the current administration has pulled off these past two years, further overreach, like attempted confiscation of guns, on their part may precipitate some physical reaction.
Most grievous to many conservatives and to most Christians is the matter of the Pro-Death [couched in the innocuous but highly inaccurate and deceptive term ‘a woman’s right to choose --- to kill her baby’] positions of most of the opponents of the six conservative candidates above. The issue of abortion is a sacred cow to the Left. It is one key foundation upon which their House (Senate and Presidency) is built. It is a core conviction of the now radicalized Democratic Party. It is not merely a political issue; it is first and foremost a moral issue. Every candidate that I vote for must be Pro-Life with no exceptions. Life is the first of the threeGod-given rights enumerated in the Declaration of Independence. It is the most important.
Our Declaration of Independence also outlines when action may be taken of a revolutionary nature, “That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” The current administration and Congress are taking our nation dangerously close to destroying the foundations of our nation. That is why this election is so vital to the future of this great nation.
There is hope that we can stop, curtail the rapid malignancy of big, obtrusive government and its grab for power and control of individual and institutions. There is hope that we can institute a new government that listens once again to the people instead of dictating what the people will receive or not receive.
Mr. Carville, these may well be “dangerous views” to you and your elite socialist progressives. Yes, it is antithetical to socialism, but is closer to what the Founders originally established than the unrealistic global utopia of which the current Democratic leadership is now in hot pursuit to implement.
The Left and Carville in his statement above continue to decry and deny the absolute grassroots nature and widespread American support of the Tea Party Movement and want to depict it as a Republican, corporate-driven scheme. It is not like the George Soros-funded Leftist Movement that swept the current controversial and increasingly unpopular President into power.
No the patriotic Tea Party Movement is not a creation of Karl Rove’s Billionaires, but it truly is a spontaneous average American phenomenon. It is a reaction to the policies and legislation of a runaway out-of-control government.
Expect the ultimate Tea Party to occur on Election Day, Tuesday, November 2, 2010!
