Lugar has forgotten whom he serves
You have an employee who has been with you many years. In the beginning, he was fantastic – smart, articulate, a critical thinker. You leaned upon him and trusted him completely from that point forward. But over the last decade or so, you’ve realized that he sometimes fails to act in your best interest.
He spends time on projects you did not request and did not want. He claims to be too busy to meet with you to discuss these concerns. He is no longer interested in your needs and viewpoints. He seems to believe you work for him, not the other way around.
Do you not fire an arrogant, aloof, out-of-control employee such as this, regardless of his past service?
In my opinion, Richard Lugar has become that employee. He has forgotten whom he serves. Lugar has no time for Hoosier rubes and their conservative ideas. Besides, he knows best anyway. After 35 years of running in the power circles of D.C., he reflects that culture much more than the one here. His slanderous attacks on Richard Mourdock are a good example of his waning character.
I believe that if you liked Lugar in the past, you’ll love Mourdock now. He has the dust of Indiana on his shoes. He understands our frustrations (and precarious financial situation), and is willing to campaign hard for the critical fall election. (Lugar will fight the proxy campaign of an 80-year-old man from his home in Virginia).
We, as a nation of immigrants, have strived, not because we are better; but rather because or our undying conviction in a supreme being. And it is this, a higher truth, we must pursue, and we must never waiver from the wisdom of our Lord. The absolute belief in divine providence was the guiding light that led our founding fathers into the unknown. However, we have witnessed a decline in morality, respect of our neighbor, ourselves and self-reliance. The absence of divine intervention will compel mankind to falter, and falter we have done.
Nonetheless, we can and we must rekindle within us the burning light that had led our founding fathers to sever the cast-iron chains that only omnipotence can break and. Only then can we begin to restore the fundamental principles our forefathers bestowed upon us. To that, singular, unifying belief we must heed with absolute certainly that all people, despite their nationality, religion and creed, can and will forsake all facets of despotism foreign and domestic and bring to the fore the indispensable fundamental principles that will bring upon this continent independence forever.
Daniel Griswold, tea party supporter for Richard Mourdock.
We need Lugar
Do we need intelligent, proven leaders in Washington? Our country needs Sen. Lugar. Vote on May 8 or vote early by absentee ballot. Lugar is a man of faith, integrity and character.
Lugar opposed Obamacare, voted against it 32 times and co-sponsored legislation to fully repeal it. Lugar first asked Indiana’s attorney general to question Obamacare’s constitutionality, a case that is now before the Supreme Court.
Also, Lugar has consistently stood up for Hoosier taxpayers and opposed Obama’s big-government spending. Lugar voted against the failed stimulus plan and voted against all of Obama’s bankrupting budgets. Vote Tuesday for Lugar to retain intelligent, proven leaders in our nation.
