Reasons (not) To Vote Republican

The following has been circulating around the internet. The author has not been identified.

 

Thinking about voting republican in November 2014?

After 30 years of being a registered republican I can no longer support their cruel treatment to American families. I invite you to join me in taking our country back. Vote blue in November 2014 and 2016.

    Just received a fundraising letter from Rand Paul. Supports a Constitutional Amendment to overturn Roe v Wade. The life begins at conception amendment. Add it to the list.

    The author is Harry Davis. He originally posted it on the RNC’s Facebook, and suggested it be shared. Here is his Facebook page:
    https://www.facebook.com/harryhap.davis

    I have messaged him with thanks but have as yet received no reply.

      Harry wrote me that it wasn’t the author. He was trying to find who originally posted the article.

      • solodm says:

        Hmm, then perhaps he shouldn’t have used his name as author, and declared he wished it to be shared. Thanks for the information – I’ll be more careful next time.

    “If you want to see Congress not work 239 days out of the next year – then you need to vote Republican.” It isn’t clear that this can be blamed on Republicans or cured by voting for Democrats–the cause is improved transportation that allows members of Congress to live at home rather than in the Capitol. Once it was possible to go home even to California, the pressure to take every other week off affected both parties. One possible cure would be to end the myth that Congress is in session during “home work weeks.” If the President could make between session appointments whenever Congress took a week, off, members would be less eager to go home.

    I thought Harry Davis wrote it also, as his name follows the post. Nonetheless, it’s on the mark. I re-posted it a few days ago.

    Congratulations to the author on finally figuring out how to vote responsibly – and how to write a very effective Democratic ad.
