Kevin R. McCarthy for Jefferson County Commissioner

Presidential Candidates in Texas

Here it comes…. weeeee….

1) Now that Texas is important to them, we start to be big advertising bucks being dropped.

2) In a note to a local blogger, who isn’t sure who to vote for, I suggested that McCain is the only choice. I would prefer to vote Libertarian, but that’s a dog that won’t hunt for quite a while and one of the reasons is that I DO NOT want a democrat in the White House. That’s a personal issue (more in a minute). The only way to keep with Hillary or Obama out of the White House is to get McCain in. Talk about the lesser of three evils (well maybe two evils and a really bad guy). Face it, none of our candidates are Lincoln or even Reagan. We, unfortunately don’t have the option of voting ‘none of the above’ and starting over in December. Let’s face it, if Fire Marshall Bill was running as Republican, I’d vote for him as long as it kept the Democrats out.

3) My reason for not liking the Dems can be explained in Hillary’s ad. If you’re local, then you’ve probably seen it. The one where she talks about helping people. It’s all about helping people. Let me explain it this way, forgive me for shouting

It is NOT the government’s job to help people!

Say it with me, “It is not the government’s job to help people.” The government , basically, has three jobs

  1. Provide for the common defense
  2. regulate interstate trade
  3. conduct international dialog (war, alliances, trade negotiations, etc.)

(Preamble to the US Constitution)

Ladies and gentlemen, I encourage you to vote Libertarian for local offices. If we can get some people in office and show that we are serious about reducing taxes and decreasing the giant government that we have, then maybe, in a few decades, we can get someone in the WHite House who remembers what it is like to pay a house note, and pay taxes, and complain about government.

For now, vote McCain… maybe he’ll do something cool and pick Fred Thompson as his VP.
