It’s not a matter for debate: Election has consequences

Craig Hall, Publisher

When I think about the ramifications of the upcoming election, it scares me to death, especially on the national scale.

Everyone who knows me knows I don’t support President Barack Obama or his party pretty much across the board. But that doesn’t mean I think Mitt Romney is the answer. I simply don’t trust anyone who says they have a plan to create 12 million jobs. I felt the same way about Scott McGinnis when he ran for governor. I feel that way about any candidate who makes this particular promise for one simple reason: The only way a politician can “create” a job is to confiscate money from taxpayers and transfer it to someone else — generally a favored constituency, a political crony or to a place a big donor says it should go. If you need proof to that pudding I’m serving, look no further than the green energy boondoggle under the current administration in Washington, D.C.

My message to Mitt, Barack, Scott, Sal, Jared, Tim, Ray, Dan, Virgil, John, Jana, the other John, Rose and David is to simply quote still another person named John — Galt that is. In his rather long-winded, 100-or-so-page speech toward the end of “Atlas Shrugged,” Galt simply said this to the government and its endless regulations and intervention in the marketplace: “Get the hell out of my way!”

That about sums up my entire political philosophy if you add for politicians to stop stealing my money and spending it on your little pet projects and stick to the constitution. My final caveat would be to simply say we should add a constitutional amendment that states as soon as someone we elect breaks a campaign promise, they’re immediately dismissed from their jobs. Well, that and a mandatory 25 percent cut in spending starting tomorrow. Because in the real world, we don’t keep paying people who break their word, don’t do their job and overstep their boundaries. Although we night tolerate it for a while, everyone who’s wasting our money gets canned. We also don’t spend 30 percent to

40 percent more then we take in year after year. Sound like anyone you might have voted for and would like to fire? Yeah, it does to me too.

That said, we have to vote for someone. So here’s my picks for all they’re worth: Mitt Romney for president, partly for the reason he has business savvy and just as much because he’s not Barack Obama. Scott Tipton for Congress, not because he’s done anything in particular that I know about, it’s just that he seems less damaging than Sal “Scorched Earth” Pace. Tim Menger for District 54 simply because he isn’t Jared Wright. Dan Robinson for District 55 mainly because I have no idea as to anything Ray Scott has accomplished and incumbents who don’t do anything bug me. Any one of the three candidates for Commissioner District 1; and Rose Pugliese for Commissioner District 3 because I know Rose and I’ve talked to her enough to know there’s some Galt there.

The rest you can decide for yourselves because most amendments for Colorado are someone’s pet project and I tend to vote no. The only vote I want to cast for the University of Colorado would be to defund it from public funds. And the only thing I want to do with judges is to never have to face one in my life again.

That said, happy voting. Please do it only once!

    Interesting Craig – Glad to see you thinking outside the box and being open minded on candidate selection.  Any time you want to talk, or anyone else, I am glad to help you on your district 1 decision by getting to know this candidate better.  They or you can call my cell phone 640-0176 or otherwise check out my website http://www.visionsformesacounty.com
    I was born and raised in Mesa County, living here for over 35 years. I have worked in business for over 30 years, including managing my own business for 14 years.   I have been active in the chamber for the past 14 years, serving on committees including Leadership, Legislative, Transportation and more.  I chose to keep my campaign expenses low, and not put a sign in every yard, as I wanted to show I could manage my campaign the way I will work to manage the citizens of Mesa County’s dollars should I be honored to be elected.  I picked the color purple as my campaign color, because I think we have to work together.  My only campaign promises have been, I will listen to all perspectives and endeavor to make the decision that I believe serves the greatest number of Mesa County Citizens, most closely effected by the results.  I will also share with you why I made the decisions, knowing we will not always agree.    I would be honored to have your vote, so I may serve the citizens of Mesa County as commissioner for district 1.   Jana Bingham Gerow
