Writer takes issue with show’s portrayal of candidate
Dear Mr. O’Reilly,
In the presidential race, Ron Paul and Herman Cain are my favorites at this time.
Ron Paul has been consistently pro-constitution when it wasn’t cool, and has earned the admiration and deep respect of many of us in the heartland who might not be as libertarian as he is, but who love the fact that he doesn’t need a focus group to tell us what he believes!
Herman Cain is extremely inspirational, and might just be one of the GOP’s best-kept secrets, having come up from roots of financial difficulty, and let Godfather’s Pizza to renewed success without slicing jobs!
So it is that Gov. Mitt Romney is not my favorite candidate.
But, I do believe it is unjust to fail to distinguish between a healthcare plan at the state level, which was highly popular among the voters of Massachusetts at the time, and the scourge of Obamacare.
The differences are real. While the governor deserves political criticism for giving the Washington-knows-best crowd the model of an atrocious government mandate to purchase health insurance, he makes a correct point that there is such a thing as a 10th Amendment, allowing states to try things that the Congress of the United States is not morally justified to impose on the nation.
Right here in Waxahachie, Texas, there is a a project called “Hope Clinic” which is an outreach to the poor, supported by many Christians.
If the government could be reduced to its constitutional functions, it is my belief that Hope Clinic could multiply its support base overnight.
Americans are very generous, and the benefits to everyone at every income level would be incredibly wonderful if our national addiction to federal obesity could somehow be reversed.
Paul Richard Strange, Waxahachie
