BYE-BYE, HARRY REID: Why Republicans Must Take Control of the Senate

Written by William Pauwels on October 15, 2014

Occasionally, a voter is confronted by a personal dilemma – a candidate of his favorite party that he does not totally agree with. In that circumstance, the voter may be inclined to vote for an independent party candidate, or an opposite party affiliate, or simply not vote at all.  Sometimes such decisions might be correct.  However, more often than not, such actions are incorrect, i.e., have broad, negative, strategic consequences.

For example, the Republican Party is attempting to win control of the Senate in the upcoming November elections.  As you know, Republicans have had control of the House of Representatives, and have put forward dozens of bills that have been blocked by Democratic, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.  More often than not, he refuses to bring House proposals to the floor for a vote.

By gaining control of the Senate, and retaining control of the House of Representatives, voters can end this Democrat Senatorial roadblock.  By establishing a Republican majority in the Senate, House proposals will once again see the light of day.

By electing Republicans to the Senate, the Democrat myth that the Republican controlled House of Representatives is a “do-nothing” body – will be exposed for what it is: a gigantic Democrat lie.

My point is that voting for a Republican – even when you don’t agree with all of his/her values – is strategically important, if Republican initiatives originating in the House are to see the light of day in the Senate.  In other words, we must end Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s leftist control of Congressional legislation.

There may be Republicans you don’t like for various reasons – for example, those favoring freedom of choice – or climate change – or open borders – or anti-pipeline legislation – etc.  However, they must be elected if we are to accomplish the strategic goals as set forth by the House of Representatives.

Think about it!  Think strategically!  Elect a Republican Senate!

In God we must trust . . . but we must always do our part – to secure and promote the truth and a better way – to protect our freedom and interests – and to defend the Judeo-Christian American-Way.
