Vote GOP, across the board

Dear Editor:

An electorate educated about the issues and the candidates’ positions on the issues is critical to the effective functioning of our American democracy. Yet it seems that in every campaign season the propaganda from both sides (and from outside groups that support each side) obfuscates the issues. Nevertheless, this campaign season may be unique because the choices in most of the races are, in fact, clear. The polls suggest that voters understand this.

If you like the direction in which the country is headed, stick with the team in charge. If you’re worried about the country’s direction – massive debt, a weak economy, high unemployment and even higher underemployment, uncertainty resulting from increased regulation and health care legislation – try something new. The Republican Party offers this country a new direction. That’s what this election is all about.

I urge you to vote for our Republican team: Ken Buck for U.S. Senate, Scott Tipton for Congress from the 3rd Congressional District, Bob Rankin for Colorado Senate, and Luke Korkowski for Colorado House. Also, John Suthers for Colorado Attorney General, Walker Stapleton for Colorado Treasurer, Scott Gessler for Colorado Secretary of State, and Steve Bosley for the Colorado Board of Regents.
