Republicans Can Back Up Claims
The Democrats are upset with a flier giving 10 reasons not to vote Democrat. They say we have called their motives into question. Nonsense. If you read their protestations, one thing is missing. They fail to deny the truth of assertions made.
Democratic Chairman Brian Deaton has challenged us to substantiate our claims. We have. He should go to our Web site, where we have the factual basis for each claim.
There is one truth about politics: Democrats tend to be liberals. For instance, Republicans know that drilling for oil, mining oil shale and expanding nuclear power will keep energy plentiful and cheaper. Meanwhile, the Demo-cratic platform calls for a reduction in oil availability of 35 percent in order to "save the planet."
Republicans simply believe that more energy means a lower price. And when energy is made at home, the money stays at home.
Democratic policies are based on a theory of scarce resources. This includes housing and energy. They believe that if resources are scarce, they must be rationed by government to ensure fairness. Republican policies are based upon the theory that an expanding economy creates a surplus of resources that can best be rationed by the marketplace.
The Democrat/Republican choice on Election Day is whether the government should ration scarcity or encourage production, surplus and growth.
We hope all voters will go to our Web site, www.moorecountyncgop.org. Consider not only party policy differences but philosophical differences.
We do not assign a bad motive to the Democrats, just differences in the philosophy of government. If Democrats are offended by how they appear when those differences are presented, then, with the privacy of their secret ballot, they ought to vote Republican. We won't tell. It's still the best choice.
