Unfortunately, confusion appears to be a strong point for Republicans in this year's 4th District race. The game plan for Washington consists in calling one's opponent a Democrat in order to sell the garbage that some people believe the U.S. Constitution is an antiquated document.
To label the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as socialized medicine is cynical and very misleading. Not to mention that U.S. private insurance companies have a large stake in national health care policy denies the reality that it should be a human right for all Americans to enjoy.
A solemn pledge "to not raise taxes" seems like kissing babies and baking apple pies, when, "for my corporate friends" is omitted. I have been a registered voter since 1968 when issues of war and peace were debated. As the Obama administration transitions to a peaceful economy, voters must step up their responsibility "to quit the trash talk." Government for the 99 percent -- not billionaires like David and Charles Koch -- is a sign of a healthy economy.
The best way to reclaim democracy is to support the proposed 28th Amendment to end corporate personhood and defend the right of all to vote.
Never miss a local story.
