LETTER TO THE EDITOR, January 13, 2007
Three Trojan horses have been spotted headed for South Carolina. One is coming from Arizona, one from New York, and the last from Massachusetts. They are being pushed by CBS, ABC, and NBC news. One of the horses is loaded with reversible t-shirts, which have a picture of a donkey on one side and an elephant on the other. The second horse contains t-shirts that read, “I march in all gay parades.” The third horse has a fairly good message.
Fortunately, a Conestoga wagon has been spotted headed south from Kansas. At the reigns is Senator Samuel Brownback (R). He is moving slowly because the wagon contains copies of the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and pictures of the Founding Fathers such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Henry Clay, and James Madison. These documents are essential in South Carolina because most of them are needed by the voters to help them remember why we are a Republic.
Recently, I was invited to a luncheon sponsored by Senator DeMint to introduce Senator Brownback to the community. At that time, Senator Brownback announced that he would be running for President of the United States. He expressed his support for pro-life, the institution of marriage between a man and a woman, securing the borders with real immigration reform, and protecting ourselves from terrorists. I had the opportunity to tell him that I recently read Culture Warrior by O Reilly and was amazed at how far our society has deteriorated. My questions to him were: How did Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg (D) receive 97 votes in the United States Senate for her confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court? (50 votes were from Democrats and 47 from Republicans) This individual was the chief counsel for the ACLU, an organization which is attacking all our basic beliefs and guaranteed rights.
Why was Republican pro-life nominee Samuel Alito able to muster only 54 votes for his confirmation? Brownback then stated that he was in favor of responsible judges who upheld the Constitution and did not reinterpret it as they went along. Based on what I heard, I became a believer in this man.
Senator Samuel Brownback, (R) Kansas, has marched this past weekend in the pro-life rally in Washington, DC against the Supreme Court decision of Roe vs Wade (1973). Where were the other candidates on Saturday?
In my opinion, Senator Samuel Brownback would be the best choice to win the South Carolina Republican Primary. There is no duplicity in his message.
