My reasons for supporting DAVID HARMER for Congress
Original post made by Doug Bell, Laguna Oaks, on Jun 20, 2010
I must first appologise to anyone reading this who believes government is some kind of diety-like entity that can somehow solve ANY problem.
It is not.
It cannot. (Just look how effective your trillion dollar government was on the Gulf oil problem and Katrina.)
I believe David Harmer would go to Washington to do what government CAN do -- what our founding fathers wanted it to do:
KEEP TYRANNY OFF THE BACKS OF THE PEOPLE.
I'm scared by this recent trend that politicians of both parties get somehow transformed inside the Washington DC into tax spending maniacs, enslaving us to more and more national (and state!) debt.
DAVID HARMER will not be this way. Here's why I believe this:
R E A S O N #1: I heard Mr. Harmer talk about something he is upset with, that deeply upsets my wife and myself, too. At the last Tea Party in Pleasanton, he got up and spoke how wrong it was that Congress, by massively overspeading more than they take from us, lays that titanic debt on our poor kids. ('Titanic' because it will sink us.)
He is thinking about the future of his kids, and my kids.
R E A S O N #2: I belive David Harmer has a true, conservative backbone, and will fight to lower federal taxes and spending.
Do YOU have any extra money to pay more taxes?
Could YOU use a little extra money for yourselves, if the federal politicians spent less of your hard earned tax dollars?
David Harmer's father was the Lt. Governor to Ronald Reagan, so there's a family tradition of real conservatism. Harmer is endorsed by Bill Baker, the last conservative congressman of our district.
REASON #3: Amazingly, his wife happened to sit next to us on a recent plane flight, and we had a wonderful conversation about politics, family values, and conservatism. (She opened her laptop and its background pict was a nice photo of the whole Harmer family; that's how we recognized Elayne.)
If a candidate's spouse knows in detail his conservative stance, that's impressive.
If a candidate's spouse knows his conservative accomplishments, that's impressive.
And since she was riding coach like the rest of us have to, that's really impressive.
Yeah, I have to admit, if half my income didn't go to all the taxes I pay, yes, I would fly first class.
I strongly believe David Harmer will be a FIRST CLASS congressman.
