My letter to the News Journal: 1 vote for Michael Castle = 1 vote FOR George Bush
Yes, it IS
So many of Delaware’s Democrats, Independents, and Republicans are outraged by George Bush’s reckless and un-American approach to his duties that they are asking, “What more can I do to send a clear message to this out of touch President?”
The answer is simple. Vote against George Bush by voting FOR
Dennis Spivack for Congress.
Mr. Castle likes to portray himself as a moderate. However, now he refuses to debate Dennid Spivack and is running away from his record. His blind support for the President’s failed policies, and his movement from his moderate base into the camp of the far right-wing put the lie to the notion that he is a moderate. While he was elected for his moderate views, in the past six years Mr. Castle has become a dependable rubber stamp for George Bush.
- Castle voted with the President’s less than half-baked plans for invading Iraq.
- Castle voted for shifting the tax burden to the middle class, and
- Castle sealed his loyalty to the extreme right-wing of his party by co-sponsoring legislation designed to erode the constitutional checks and balances between the judicial and legislative branches of government that were once taken for granted.
In spite of this record, Castle could still win in November. However, by voting against Michael Castle and for his Democratic opponent Dennis Spivack, we might make Mr. Castle less likely to blindly follow his party at the expense of his constituents here in Delaware. So this time, even if you happen to like Mr. Castle, vote against him. If you have had enough of George Bush, and you think that this country is on the wrong track, make your voice heard. Vote for Dennis Spivack for Congress.
If you do not like the way this country is being run, you can complain, or you can vote to change it.
