To the editor: As Election Day approaches, it is crucial for all of us to exercise our constitutional right to vote. We should make those voting decisions based on where the candidates stand on your ranking of the important issues of our day.
Some political candidates rely on name recognition strategy to seek election. They lack the political courage, one way or the other, to take a stand on issues. As I started my research on those candidates seeking to represent this district in the United States Congress, I clearly stumbled upon someone who clearly defines my position on the major issues of today and has the political courage to take on those issues.
I encourage each of you to take a good look at Will Breazeale. He has a common sense approach to issue solutions and is not afraid to be on record with a stated position.
As an airline pilot and a Major in the U.S. Army Reserves, Breazeale has been on the front lines in the war on terrorism. Having served several tours in Iraq, he has fought for freedom and clearly knows what it will take to win this war.
Breazeale is supporting a “fair tax” proposal. This new taxation system will do well to solve our economic problems. It will also allow our companies to compete on a world scale, create jobs, reward saving and will bring billions of dollars back into our banking system from overseas.
Instead of ignoring illegal immigration, which is draining our county, state and national resources, Breazeale is completely against illegal immigration because that is what it is—illegal.
Breazeale’s Fair-Health Plan will help eliminate the $75 trillion budget deficit and provide guaranteed health care access, affordability, tort reform and portability for all citizens.
Breazeale has invited his political opponent to debate the issues but his incumbent opponent has refused (probably relying on name recognition alone and showing a lack of political courage).
On Sept. 11, Breazeale traveled throughout the district to get out his message and to remind us to never forget those who gave their lives on that day seven years ago. Take a look at this candidate. You may be glad you did.
