Vote your values in this election
We have a clear choice in the upcoming election: Vote for “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” or vote to fundamentally change our society.
The Democratic platform “supports a woman’s right to a safe and legal abortion regardless of ability to pay [and] opposes any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.” Our taxes shouldn’t pay for abortions, which end a life we should protect. Who will speak for the unborn unless we do? When the Indiana Legislature voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood, a federal court ordered the continued funding of the abortion provider.
Democrats support “equal treatment under law for same-sex couples” and “support the full repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act.” The Obama administration refuses to support DOMA, which is law! Thirty-two states have put same-sex marriage to a popular vote, and all have overwhelmingly supported a ban on same-sex marriages and in some cases civil unions and domestic partnerships, usually by large margins.
Obama’s failed “green energy” policies have given almost $35 billion in loans and guarantees. Abound Solar borrowed $70 million, went bankrupt, and put 125 in Colorado out of work without bringing any jobs to Tipton County as promised. Solyndra is another failure, closing its doors after receiving a $535 million loan guarantee, just a part of the $787 billion stimulus package.
We have the opportunity to stop the downward spiral of the last four years. No candidate is perfect; no person is. But the Republican Party at least has the courage to stand up for its moral values.
