Connecticut Voters Guide 2010
The democrats made history this year with the passage of healthcare reform. Some believe that they ignored the values of the constitution, while others believe they did it to provide aid to those who otherwise couldn't afford decent healthcare. Regardless of where you stand on this issue, we can all acknowledge the simple fact that the bill contained thousands of pages in which no currently elected senator or congressman actually read in its entirety nor fully understood.
It is one thing for us ordinary citizens to not understand laws, but it is another for those who make the laws to not understand the laws. While intent of the law may be noble, it is really responsible to have so many laws on the books that no one understands?
With this thought in mind, I am encouraging the residents of Connecticut to consider the following when casting their vote:
- Do not vote for anyone who is a lawyer. Candidates with business backgrounds are less likely to wrecklessly execute in this manner. Business people are more inclined to keep things simple.
- Do not vote for anyone who is a career politician. In order to grow the economy, we need fresh ideas and new thinking. Doing more of the same, won't result in a different outcome.
- Don't vote along party lines. Being a democrat doesn't automatically make you a liberal. Being a Republican doesn't automatically make you a conservative. Vote for people who share your values.
- If you are Black, don't vote for a candidate solely because they are Black. The same goes for other ethnic groups. Politicians don't really take specific actions targeted at ethnic groups for their benefit as they are there to serve all people.
- We need candidates that are pro-American. Anyone know of friends, family and coworkers where their jobs were outsourced to another country? Ask which candidate will remedy the world trade imbalance which starts with local policy.
- Don't vote for candidates that have never had to make payroll. The subject of job creation shouldn't feel academic or conceptual. We need candidates who have real-world experience creating a payroll. We don't need candidates that wouldn't even be successful running a Hot-Dog stand.
- Vote for candidates who have demonstrated they will uphold constitutional rights. Regardless of whether you are pro-gun rights or anti-gun rights, it is vital that the candidate support the rights as outlined in the constitution, for without it, we will be a nation of lost people with no framework to guide us forward.
