To The Daily Sun,
U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter shows just how out of touch she really is on the issues that matter most to New Hampshire voters with her re-election attack ads against Frank Guinta. The only ads she has been running on TV are her pro-abortion agenda ads.
First of all, unless people have been living under a rock for the last 40 years, it does not take a rocket scientist to know that the Democrats are the pro-abortion party. It's right in their party platform. So with that cleared up, is the pro-abortion agenda of the Democrats, really a top priority for New Hampshire citizens? What about jobs, the economy, supporting our military so we can continue to live in freedom and safety. She has been in Washington for the last two years and this is the best she can do? Run advertisements stating the Frank Guinta wants to take us back to the '50s?
If we really stop and think about it, for a moment, that just might not be a bad idea, if you really look at America then and now. Thanks for the suggestion Representative.
America certainly was not perfect in the 1950s, but when you look at then and now, which America would you prefer? At least in the '50s children could go to school without fear of being shot. (I'd say let's even go back to the '70s and '80s as we did not have that fear then either.) They could play outside without fear of abduction. In the 1950s the average duration for unemployment was 12 weeks, today it is over 40 weeks. In the 1950s the average family spent 22 percent of their income on housing. Today families spend about 44 percent. In the 1950s the national debt was only $257 billion. Today it is a crippling $18 trillion, with $8 trillion added in just the past six years. This is with Democrat tax and spend re-distribution of wealth policies.
In the 1950s we had a thriving middle class. Under the Democratic policies of Carol Shea-Porter the middle class continues losing ground and the nation's top earners have grown even more. Are their ideas really working and helping you?
It was the Democrats who let every Americans taxes increase on Jan. 1, 2013. Remember that? When you saw your take-home pay shrink and continue to shrink under the tax-and-spend, fee and over-regulation policies of Democrats. In the 1950s the United States was No. 1 in GDP per capita. Today we are not even in the top 10. In the 1950s the biggest disciplinary problems in schools were talking in class and chewing gum. Today many schools are now equipped with metal detectors due to the massive increase in violence. All this while even having stricter gun laws that we did in the 1950s.
In 1950 many Americans regularly left their homes and cars unlocked. Today many live with bars on their windows and have high tech alarms systems installed out of fear of theft. In 1950 the United States loaned more money to other countries. In 2014 the United States owes more money to the rest of the world than anyone else. In the 1950s the city of Detroit was a booming center of manufacturing and industry. Today it is bankrupt and abandoned, all done while under the direction and leadership of Democrats and failed policies that promised hope and change, but just give despair and disappointment.
This is the party Carol Shea-Porter belongs, and still she supports these failed ideas that just lead to bankruptcy, while it is a fact that cities and states where there is Republican leadership have grown.
So I ask, are the policies that Carol Shea-Porter and the Democrats support really moving us forward? What has she really done for us in the 1st District of New Hampshire? Has she even held a town hall meeting? She seems to like hiding in Washington. We continue to see no growth and a weak economy. Which America would you prefer?
Remember the sitcom "Happy Days" that was the '50s! They were happy for a good reason. America was united, children were safer, and people had jobs. We can have "Happy Days" again, with hard work and dedication to restore America. It will not be easy, as the policies that Democrats have forced upon us have put us in great debt and financial instability. However a good first step is electing Frank Guinta for Congress on Nov. 4.
