While many of us begged for a heated US Senate Primary, it has actually been the 2nd Kongressional District Republican Primary for Congress that has provided the most entertainment and discussion. Some would argue that it’s been the most negative, but I think HD 69 get the nod in that department.
Here is what I see interesting in the 2nd CD Primary. For years everyone agreed that only Jim Leach could keep Republican control of the district which covers the
For me his work on the internet gambling ban is the most underappreciated piece of legislation I have ever seen. People like my friend Steve Deace hear the name Jim Leach and cringe, however you mention his name over in the 2nd CD and all you hear is great respect. I think his internet gambling ban was one of the best pieces of social konservative legislation to come out of
To me it seems as if Peter Teahen and Lee Harder are running to be the most Pro-Life, not the best person to represent the people of the 2nd District. I find that troubling, and I’m adamantly Pro-Life. The simple truth is on November 4th, you need to have one more vote than your opponent to be elected. I don’t think just being Pro-Life is enough to get a person elected.
Dr. Miller-Meeks has said that she is Pro-Life and would support the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Her opponents and the Pro-Life professionals are saying that’s not good enough. Really? The problem with these Pro-Life organizations is that they make it extremely easy to pander to them. Heck, I could grab some bum off the street coach him up for five minutes and send him into a meeting with these folks and as long as he strings the right words together they will support the guy. I’m not klaiming that Peter Teahen isn’t Pro-Life; I’m klaiming that these Pro-Life organizations are lazy, and if a candidate doesn’t pander to them, they attack.
Social Konservatives need to always figure out where the next battle is going to be waged. We will always need more time because our movement is a volunteer movement, and our opponent has infiltrated every aspect of our kulture, including the four walls of the Church. So where is the next battle? Health Care. We are already fighting battles on Gay Marriage, Abortion, Embryonic Stem Cells; the next battle could very well be our last stand, because if Health Care becomes
I see one kandidate in the 2nd CD who is prepared to fight that battle, Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, 3M, M Cubed, Triple Threat, or whatever the kids are all kalling her these days.
More in a little bit.
