News From The Campaign Trail

There are a lot of theories being thrown around regarding the missing Malaysian 777. I've even had some supporters call with great, well-researched ideas about what might have happened to the plane and how our national security might be compromised because of it. These are essential concepts for our leaders and ourselves to ponder with clear eyes. In a situation like this, we can't "hope" our way out of the scary reality we live in - that there is evil in the world and terrorism is always a possibility.800px-boeing_777-200er_malaysia_al__mas__9m-mro_-_msn_28420_404__9272090094_

I definitely feel for the families involved in this case, and I know it must be hard to hear conjecture and theories on every news channel - but I think that this kind of incident is healthy for us to think about. The truth is, when there's a missing jumbo jet and the very real possibility of seriously high-tech terrorism, it forces us to think about our priorities. In this kind of situation, it matters who we vote for and what we spend our money on. Suddenly, shrinking the military seems foolish and wasting money on endless grants, bail-outs and healthy eating programs seems even sillier. These are endeavors that prosperous nations in peacetime can afford to pay for in moderation, but we've become a bloated bureaucratic pool of vanity projects and special-interest payouts. We've gotten so comfortable, with 99-week unemployment and worrying about the health of the planet, that we forget there are people in the world who dislike us very much, and are spending their time thinking about how to make us afraid instead of ways to market a lousy healthcare law to hipsters.

This missing flight should remind all of us to vote intentionally, be prudent and be on alert. Because a broke nation is a weak nation, and if we can't get our financials in order with some strong conservative votes in the House, we won't be ready for the next terror attack or unforeseen crisis. Evil never sleeps, and so we, as the shining city on a hill, a force for good in the world, should also be vigilant and prudent with our national treasury and defense.

A letter to Representative Greg Walden from frustrated constituents:

Mr. Walden, I am writing this letter to inform you that I and my wife are totally fed up with the "business as usual" of the GOP Leadership. All we hear is how your hands are tied! You have the majority in the House and you control the checkbook. What is the problem?

We have  the following suggestions, observations and decisions:   

  1. Mr. Boehner needs to go, along with all the other RINO's. (O'Reilly is right , he really is an undocumented Democrat, the others probably are as well!)
  2. You have been in public office too long. This is not a career position, and was not meant to be!
  3. Because of the above, we have decided to support Dennis Linthicum, with both our time, energy and finances. 
  4. We will remain in the ORGOP until after the primary, them we will decide what our future in political activities will be!

I am Vice-Chair of the Crook County Republican Committee, and Jane is the Vice-Chair of the Central Oregon Patriots of Prineville.

Charles and Jane
Prineville, Oregon

These decisions are personal ones and not necessarily the opinion of the above committees.
