Joe Kenney is an honorable man who has served his country

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

When you read the letters to the editor from those on the left, such as the one by E. Scott Cracraft on Saturday, you can't help but notice the blatant hypocrisy.

He considers anyone who doesn't toe the progressive (or liberal) line as an extremist while he shows himself to be an extremist from the left. He tries to make Joe Kenney out to be someone from the dark ages who is going to eat your babies when nothing could be further from the truth. Mr. Kenney is an honorable man who has served his country proudly and given his time to public service. He has stood up for the principles that this country was founded on but that is something the Constitution-hating liberals get stomach cramps over.
Now let me see, Joe voted against the greenhouse initiative which caused an increase in energy prices. He worked hard to prevent attempts to pass even more laws against law abiding citizens who possess firearms. He voted against expanding Medicaid which would have cost the taxpayers of this state untold millions of dollars in the future, (oh yeah, Obama promised us it would be paid for for three years and at 95 percent in the future and you know Obama never lies.) He voted in favor of the "stand your ground law" which those on the left cried over and over would turn the state into the Wild West. So I ask Cracraft to show one instance where this law has created a problem.

Kenney voted for the right to work law. I was a member of a union for 25 years, and I am in favor of right to work for numerous reasons which I would discuss with Cracraft if he so chooses. Kenney he is supported by Rep. Worsman who in my view is protecting the taxpayers of Belknap County from the big-spending commissioners. As far as Planned Parenthood is concerned, I don't believe anyone who is against abortion is anti-women, but that they are pro-life and if you think about it aren't pro life females women? Go figure.
The people on the left believe that co-operation means "agree with us" and will demean anyone who doesn't follow their mantra. When it comes to tolerance, those on the left are completely devoid of it and it is proven every time one of them submits a letter to this newspaper.
Even though there are reasons to vote against Mike Cryans I haven't seen anyone disparage him the way the left has disparaged Mr. Kenney. Those on the left also continuously bemoan the fact that there is some banter included in some letters, which in most cases is meant to add a little humor to the discussion, but one could conclude by their response that someone had performed oral surgery on them without the benefit of laughing gas. Thinking about it maybe a little dose of it would do them all some good.
Although there are radicals on both sides of the aisle you see the word used mostly by people from the left when anyone disagrees with their anti-constitution agenda and they have no legitimate response for it. I have found that most people on my side of the aisle are fiscal conservatives and social moderates who are willing to help those in need but not those who abuse the system, of which there are many. The U.S. Constitution has served us well for over 200 years, and when necessary has been amended to recognize the changes in our society.

The problem we have today is the fact that we have a president who believes he was given the power to make changes to this document without going to the people for a vote. These moves are illegal but when you have an attorney general who himself disregards the law it becomes very difficult to hold him accountable. Sen. Harry Reid is another uncompromising part of the equation. He may be someone who is very soft spoken but there are a lot of people walking around with knives sticking out of their backs which were put in place by him.
In the coming elections vote Republican if you want to return this state and country to prosperity.
