Why Vote in the Primary?
Your choice, not the party's...
The problem is that those who seek power are usually not the people you would want to represent you. You want people who don't want power, but want to protect our opportunity society, based on individual liberty and limited government. People who will honor the Constitution. People with common sense.
Some good people are stepping forward in this election because they are shocked and saddened by the rapid loss of freedom and steady erosion of our Constitutional protections. These few have in effect sacrificed themselves to do whatever they can, while there is still time.
Some of these people have accomplished amazing turnarounds in state governments. Scott Walker in Wisconsin and Chris Christy in New Jersey. In another 10 years these people will be ready to run for President. But today, we have to concentrate on the local, state and congressional races where good people can win. The primary vote on Tuesday, April 24th is your chance.
By voting in the primary, you can choose the best candidate, not just vote up or down on the candidate your party insiders choose. This primary is even more important because the problems facing us are getting bigger and there's not much time to turn things around. You have a chance to put one of your own on the ballot in this primary. Don't waste it.
