However, I would rather my girls serve under a mentor with values than have them taught by a liberal professor trying to brainwash them with his doctrine. (Not all college professors are liberal. The survey numbers say 80 percent.)

Rokita doesn’t listen to Hoosiers anymore

Who’s Todd Rokita? Our congressman? He never comes around here. If you don’t have the latest technology, you can’t even get in touch with him.

Besides, he doesn’t listen to the people in Indiana anymore. He listens to that “weirdo” senator from Texas.

Now Mr. Rokita has decided to shut down the government, all because some Canadian transplant has told him to.

There goes all the benefits for the poor. Doesn’t matter. He already has attacked Social Security, food stamps and every other program that helps the poor and the middle class.

His party has taken away our union rights in Indiana.

And, he depends on lack of knowledge to hold his office, like Obama wasn’t born here or is from Kenya.

Call Rokita’s office, and they lie right to your face. If they dump the debt ceiling, he says it won’t affect social programs. Doesn’t he understand how the federal budget works?

Rokita’s dumping on senior citizens and the middle class, and he’s lying to you Hoosiers about the Affordable Care Act.

Vote union. Vote choice. Vote freedom. Vote Democrat.

Electorate must take charge of Congress

On Oct. 1, President Obama’s Affordable Health Care Act took effect. In skimming over the high points, one begins to question just how affordable it actually is.

These high points are a bit too numerous to go into in this limited space, but they are there for anybody to research. One telling aspect is the haste with which President Obama and his Democrat cronies are exhibiting to achieve their ends. Which brings us to the next point: Congress and the electorate.
