Letter to the Editor
With the polls favoring Obama Republican politicians in House and Senate races are trying to make a unique and interesting argument. They are saying that people should vote for Republicans because they are a minority and that there should be some kind of quota for the number of Republicans elected. What? Wow! Are you kidding me? Isn’t that affirmative action? Are Republicans asking for political welfare, a handout if you will? Are Republicans claiming they are some sort of endangered species? Should the voters bail out the Republican party? I don’t think so.
The way I see it is if a Republican is asking for an affirmative action voter bailout, are they really Republicans? Do they have no shame? We already gave Republicans welfare when Bush came begging the taxpayers for a trillion dollars for the Wall Street bailout. I say no way! I say no way!
If a candidate has failed to earn your vote based on their own record then they don’t deserve to be reelected. I am a conservative voter who values personal responsibility. I say – let the political market decide. No redistribution of political wealth. Republicans should have to work hard, do their job, and earn our vote, not get a handout. When we go to vote on Tuesday we should vote for the person who we think will do the best job for the country. No welfare for Republicans!
