Thank you all! Now for Phase Two.

September 16, 2010

The primary season is over, and Republicans have done me the immense honor of electing me their nominee for U.S. Congress by a 40-point margin! I will officially be on the Republican, Conservative, and Independence Party ballot lines in November, and with your continued support, I will bring the same strength of purpose and clarity of message to John Hall this fall!

(Click the following links to see countywide results for Putnam, Dutchess, Orange, Westchester, and Rockland.)

Now comes the really hard work.  We have to get our message out — not just to Republicans, but to everyone in the 19th District — about reviving the American economy through shrinking the size and scope of the federal government and getting Congress and the White House off the backs of American workers and employers. We know how that’s going to happen. For starters:

  • Cut taxes on individuals (to stimulate commerce) and businesses (to spur job creation).
  • Slash federal spending, starting with suspending the various failed “stimulus” packages and refusing any more bailouts.
  • Repeal/replace/defund the unconstitutional federal takeover of health care.

If we can return to a government that the Founders, in their wisdom, envisioned for us, we can return to a government that will allow our economy to thrive again, and our people to live in liberty.

I cannot thank you enough for your unfailing energy, enthusiasm, and faith this past year on the trail. Now we’ve got a scant seven weeks to build this momentum to an intensity that even Rep. Hall can’t ignore.  Our work is cut out for us; if we can all hold together through November, I’m ready to be your next Congresswoman!

Onward to victory, and once again: thank you!

If you drive into a wall, don’t blame the wall

August 22, 2010

 
Some observers from the left side of the political spectrum have been bending themselves into pretzels trying to explain why President Obama isn’t making headway with the American public in the midterm election campaign push.  Their efforts would be comical if they didn’t reflect a political philosophy that has cost us so dearly.

Bad medicine

August 20, 2010

 
In December, 1799, President George Washington contracted a severe throat infection.  His doctors–distinguished experts all–treated him with calomel, to induce vomiting, and bloodletting.  When their patient’s condition deteriorated, they treated even more vigorously, giving more calomel and taking more blood in the hopes that this time they’d succeed.

George Washington died of dehydration, blood loss, and choking from the uncontrolled infection.  His very well-meaning physicians had actually hastened his death.

Want to help, Mr. President? Back off!

August 12, 2010

 
Back in June we blogged about the Business Roundtable’s withering assessment of President Obama’s approach toward American businesses.  Things haven’t improved.
 
To the contrary:  resistance to the President’s economic agenda has been spreading throughout the business community, affecting even groups and leaders who supported both Candidate and President Obama.  Runaway “stimulus” spending with no discernible results, a new health care bureaucracy that’s already adding to costs, and credit that’s harder to come by now due to financial “reform” have finally taken a toll on employers’ faith in the President.  Now that he needs their support to buck up his economic cred ahead of the midterms, they’re balking.

Signs of denial

July 16, 2010

 
Let’s say you love jelly beans (who doesn’t?), so you use your life savings to open The Bean Counter.  Unfortunately, most of your prospective customers think you’re offering accounting services rather than candy, and the rest are worried about getting cavities, so after a couple of months you have to close up shop; your whole venture down the drain.  Now, what do you do to pick up the pieces?  Well, if you follow the lead of the current Administration, you borrow some more money to pay for an ad campaign to trumpet the success of The Bean Counter!

Huh?
