Ri­den­hour turned me off from the start

In re­sponse to “Matthew Ri­den­hour jumps into 9th Dis­trict Repub­li­can pri­mary” (March 7):

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Matthew Ri­den­hour, who is vy­ing for the va­cant 9th Dis­trict seat, was one of the early or­ga­niz­ers of the Tea Party ral­lies. That in it­self is more than enough to turn me off.

But two of his other state­ments def­i­nitely fall high on the list of ig­no­rant ones. He said he is run­ning be­cause “the voices of so­cial­ists are grow­ing louder and louder. ”Ac­cord­ing to Rid en hour “They want to ban air travel, farm­ing, and bank­rupt our coun­try.”

Does he hon­estly be­lieve that, or is he just fear-mon­ger­ing? Some peo­ple never cease to amaze me!
