Personal failures are not the problem

info@islandpacket.comMay 5, 2013 

Some folks upset about Mark Sanford's personal failures may stay home election day or vote for Elizabeth Colbert Busch; either will help elect another Democrat. Great plan.

Let's seat one more who'll further the leftist agenda unleashed four years ago to transform our country, undermine freedom, redistribute wealth, increase the number of government employees, regulate small business to death and make government dependency seem patriotic.

Yes, let's increase the number of those who brought us super ideas like a stimulus package to fix the economy, but took crony capitalism to new heights of corruption. Or "Fast and Furious," which put tax-funded guns into the hands of thugs who murdered our border guard along with several hundred Mexicans.

This was before the politicization of home-grown horrors to pass gun control, which wouldn't hinder the insane or criminals from getting guns. Let's seat another who won't utter the words "Muslim terrorist," but will spend tax dollars to blame a video for the attack on our Benghazi consulate and the murder of four brave Americans.

Colbert Busch will help promote the "Unaffordable Care Act," which adds $1.8 trillion in new spending. It doesn't cover everyone, but takes away our right to our doctors, unless you have friends in high places and are exempted from this nightmare or are a member of Congress.

She'll help promote bloated government spending while further complicating taxes, lowering national defense, helping unions, and finding new ways to take our money. What a great idea.
