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.

Dennis I support you because I strongly believe that the Constitution should be our rule book. Our founding fathers struggled to make this country what it has been in the past and what it is meant to be and now our government is working just as hard to destroy it. I also believe that government employees from the President on down the line should have to pay into social security and get no more than anyone else when they retire. There are no other jobs where you can vote what your own salary and retirement will be.

The idea of Congress retiring with such high retirements is ridiculous. Their jobs are no more important than anyone else’s. I also think that all this government control will only make "more liars and cheats" than we already have. Stop all these government give away programs and let people work for their living instead of getting a hand out. It would save money and make people feel better about themselves.
