LETTER: Don’t turn country over to Republicans

-A A +A
By The Staff

With the mess this country is in under a republican president and the mess our ex-republican governor left the state in, why would we want to turn the country over to more republicans?  President Bush lead us into a war in Iraq which has bled this country dry.  Would we be in as bad of shape with the Wall Street meltdown if we had not spent all our money on an un-winnable war?  In the last eight years I have watched my retirement fund melt down to less than half what it was when Bush took office.  I know the rest of you are hurting also.  Had Bush, McConnell and McCain not pushed for deregulating the stock market and savings and loans, we wouldn’t be in the mess we find ourselves today.  Everything that has been deregulated has turned into a mess, including the air lines.

Mitch McConnell and Senator McCain would keep leading us down the wrong path.  You have to vote for a change to get a change.

 These two candidates are running a “mean spiritedness”  campaign.  Whatever happened to decent republicans that stuck to the issues like Dwight Eisenhower, John Sherman Cooper, Marlowe Cook and Thurston Morton.  The vicious, malicious personal attacks on Barack O’bama and Bruce Lunsford are unproductive and uncalled for.  I am 73 years old and have never seen anything like it.  It is time to elect someone who will try to solve the problems instead of being part of the problems that got us in the mess we’re in today.

 David Boswell, candidate for Kentucky’s 2nd US Congressional District is far the most experienced and qualified of the two running for this office.  He has been a long-time state senator from the Owensboro area and served as state agricultural commissioner making him more qualified to handle the farmer’s problems.

 Bill Young was born and raised on a farm in Shelby County.  He has been an educator and community activist and believes in “putting people first”.  We need to elect Bill Young for state representative from the 58th house district.

 Let’s get this country and state moving forward again.   Vote for the candidates that will do this.
