Why vote Republican?

Republicans give a hand-up, not a handout like the Democrats do.

Republicans want you to be independent — not dependent like the Democrats do.  Republicans want your vote for the benefit of our whole country.  Democrats want your vote for support of special interests, i.e. union bosses.

Republicans agree with late president John F. Kennedy that Americans should “Ask not what your country can do for you but instead ask what you can do for your country.” The current crop of Democrats believe the opposite of JFK.

Republicans think too much government is our biggest problem today. Democrats think more government is the answer to all our problems today.

Republicans believe freedom loving, responsible individuals are the strengh and foundation for our country. Democrats believe leveling of results by government is the strength and foundation of our country.

These are just a few of the many reasons why I am a Republican.
