National GOP record causes Castle voter to reconsider
I have lived and voted in Delaware for more than 15 years. I have always voted for Mike Castle for whatever office he was running for. He is a good and honorable person, a dedicated public servant, who has represented our state well and has been a voice of reason in Washington.
But no more, the recent Mark Foley incident involving congressional pages is the final straw. It confirms to me that the Republican party has no interest in the people it represents.
An ill-conceived war plan, a budget deficit that buries my grandchildren and great grandchildren in debt, tax breaks for the rich, being told what moral choice is correct and incorrect, the list never ends.
My only choice is to vote for change. If Delaware loses a good representative, so be it. The sacrifice will be worth it. The future of our country is at stake. If you are fed up with what is happening in Washington, you can voice your disgust. Vote for a change. Castle's opponent can do no worse.

Okay. That closing could have been better, but I'll take it.
