The Lady Takes A Stand
By Allen Wilson
We are truly blessed to have strong candidates for Congress in the upcoming elections. Reading a quote from this outspoken lady, I was immediately impressed with her willingness to take on the issues and, if necessary, her own party on the behalf of her constituents.
Though I don’t agree with everything she represents I can certainly agree with her words,
“Barack Obama is a threat to the continued existence of the United States, and he must be impeached, or resign. The real question is, what will we replace his bad policies with? Real patriots understand the need to think ahead, to create a meaningful purpose and direction as we rebuild our nation. We know that the next several generations need a better world to live in, which can only be a Post-Obama World.”
She doesn’t have a large campaign fund. In fact, she doesn’t have the financial support of her party. She showed her understanding of the reality of her fight in a statement to the printed press saying,
“I was knocking on doors everywhere — everyone knew my positions. I don’t think the Party leadership is getting it. The people continue to see more and more economic devastation and they don’t see any real leadership.”
Standing on a street corner almost every day with her campaign sign and running a vigorous person to person campaign, this candidate will not boast of a large campaign war chest to fight her opponents. Her focus is on the people of her district, not the media or special interests.
You may feel kinship to these thoughts or feel rising personal and patriotic support for her campaign. But, if you are a resident of Central Florida you won’t be able to vote for her because these are the words of Kesha Rogers the Democratic candidate for Congress in the 22nd District of Texas, who won her primary with 53% of the vote against two rivals at 28% and 20%. It is sobering to think that compared to Alvin Greene in South Carolina, she ran a high profile campaign.
There is a message in this story that is abundantly clear and undeniably simple, a message that most Americans have indelibly etched on their souls. It is a message that was delivered on the afternoon of Thursday, November 19, 1863 in the closing phrase of some short remarks by a great American, “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
