Boebert stands strong

By what standards shall we judge political candidates? I believe by their integrity as they follow and obey our civil, moral and constitutional laws. During the upcoming primary, we are privileged to have two Republican candidates for CD3 who have exposed their true colors via their voting records for us to help evaluate their commitment to sound government. No amount of campaign rhetoric or flashy ads will change their votes of the past:

Colorado State Sen. Don Coram’s constitutional voting record, the one he swore to serve and defend, has been a dismal 41% average during his past four years. I certainly hope that his wedding vows are obeyed more closely than his oath to the Constitution.

Rep. Lauren Boebert’s constitutional voting record, the one she swore to serve and defend, has been 90%, which exceeds all of her three predecessors’ lifetime voting records: Tipton (66%), Salazar (20%), McInnis (58%). I certainly hope she improves during her next term in D.C.

The “worldview” of the authors of numerous letters to the editor slamming Boebert are telling, in that they expose a pro-central government bias and often criticize her allegiance to constitutional law and conservative principles, rather than falling for the woke emotions of the day. The critics are obviously a part of the fastest-growing religion today called humanism, which is a worship of self/humans/government as the ultimate source of power and knowledge; I call it worshiping the creature of government as a god, while Boebert is criticized by the left for her faith in worshiping the creator of the universe in God. These are common arguments for our once-Christian nation (never 100%), which has gone full circle as pre-, post-, and now anti-Christian sentiments. The comments are expected from a nation that has turned their backs on God and placed Washington, D.C., as the savior. The fact is that the more we turn from the Founding Fathers’ intent of the states limiting the power of the federal government, the more we sink as a nation into the trap of slavery by the feds losing our liberties and freedoms. We need strong constitutional leadership, not people with a wishbone where a backbone is supposed to be. Please vote for Boebert this month.
