Let me start by saying that I am a good and true Republican. I’ve sweated blood and tears for the cause over many, many years.
I get involved early and often and help the candidates that I feel will do the best job in leading my community, state, and country. I have no personal agenda other than what is good and right for society as a whole.
When I read this headline, GOP to Air Ad Warning of Terror Attacks, I was very concerned.
I was in Washington, DC on 9/11. I had friends run from the White House, Capitol Building, and elsewhere, in real fear of being caught in the day’s tragedies.
I think it’s a telling sign when a political party must resort to fear tactics to win an election. Yes, the stakes of every election are high, and we are at a state of war against terrorists who seek to destroy our way of life; but elections should be won on the merits and not through fear and scare tactics.
Republican strategists need to rethink the strategies that they are putting forward to try and win (or minimize the losses).
