Map­ping out the blue­print for vic­tory

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

The 2012 elec­tions are the pri­mary fo­cus of the Demo­crat party. How can they use their spin and di­vide tac­tics to make Pres­i­dent Obama’s record ap­pear good. Mr. Obama has put his poli­cies for his en­vi­sioned changes in place and each one has has been an ab­ject fail­ure. The Amer­i­can peo­ple re­al­ize this.

To pro­duce the changes that the peo­ple want will be dif­fi­cult but they will be achieved. The im­por­tant first step is to counter the Democrats’ bo­gus ar­gu­ment that all of the cur­rent or po­ten­tial Repub­li­can can­di­dates are weak. Make it clear, be­cause it is true, that each of these can­di­dates is bet­ter qual­i­fied than Mr. Obama and would do a bet­ter job in get­ting our econ­omy im­proved and in cre­at­ing pri­vate sec­tor jobs. They would end the spend­ing binge, de­velop health care re­form in in­cre­men­tal steps, se­cure our borders, make us once again a coun­try with the rule of law, strengthen our mil­i­tary, and make diplo­macy de­ci­sions that sup­port our al­lies and op­pose our en­e­mies.

An­other im­por­tant point, when Repub­li­can can­di­dates de­bate each other or their can­di­date ad­vis­ers put out state­ments, they should re­frain from deroga­tory crit­i­cism of their op­po­nents, as they only harm the chances of the party can­di­date to win the na­tional elec­tions. Dif­fer­ences in poli­cies or pri­or­i­ties are fair game. Peo­ple have to know what the can­di­dates stand for. Those who lose in the pri­maries should give full sup­port to the win­ning can­di­dates.

The Repub­li­can party and can­di­dates should fo­cus on ex­pand­ing the vot­ing base by at­tract­ing ev­ery non-union worker and their fam­i­lies for the sim­ple rea­son that Mr. Obama and the Democrats have con­tin­ued their poli­cies of waivers and ex­emp­tions for unions, and pri­or­i­ties for con­tracts for con­struc­tion, in­fra­struc­ture and green en­ergy projects at both the fed­eral and state lev­els. Mr. Obama’s se­lected Head of the NLRB wants to pro­hibit a pri­vate cor­po­ra­tion, Boe­ing, from lo­cat­ing a new plant in a right to work state, South Carolina, to pro­tect union work­ers. This is the gov­ern­ment usurp­ing power from states and pri­vate cor­po­ra­tions in no un­cer­tain way.

Other ar­eas to be ad­dressed are stop­ping re­stric­tions on free­doms of choice and un­fair treat­ment of Chris­tians in many re­spects. Mr. Obama and Democrats give lip ser­vice to fair­ness, but they have a track record of dis­crim­i­na­tion against any­one who does not agree with them. It is time to counter the Demo­crat del­uge of mis­in­for­ma­tion and lay the ground­work to re­store our coun­try to the land of op­por­tu­nity with in­di­vid­ual free­dom of choice and where all our cit­i­zens put al­le­giance to our coun­try first. Con­cerned mem­bers of all par­ties, Repub­li­can, Tea, In­de­pen­dent and Demo­crat, can unite and get it done. Marvin L. Hoovis Cen­ter­ville, Mas­sachusetts
