Letter: Send Ernst to Washington
The Quad City Times ^ | May 1, 2014 | G.A. Field

Posted on 05/01/2014 1:01:41 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Joni Ernst – wife, mother, soldier and politician – is perfect for Iowa, right for Washington.

Iowa has an opportunity to matter this time. Iowa Republicans supported the likes of Huckabee, Paul and Bachmann, who were all good conservatives, but not presidential.

After Iowa played a part in putting the worst president in U.S. history in the White House, a new, qualified, and exciting Republican candidate has emerged in Red Oak, Iowa. Her campaign advertisement is sheer genius, touted as the best in the history of American politics. She has been endorsed by Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney, as well as many organizations.

Her ad generated national attention, but her impressive qualifications go far beyond that. She is a graduate of Iowa State University who earned a master’s in public communication (not to be confused with “community organizer”). She was raised on an Iowa farm. She has served a combined 21 years in the U.S. Army Reserves and the Iowa National Guard. She spent 14 months mobilized overseas in Kuwait as a company commander. As a lieutenant colonel, she currently commands the largest battalion in the Iowa Army National Guard. She is currently an Iowa state senator and a retired county auditor.

Iowa has never sent a woman to Washington. It’s time. In my opinion, we might have found the next Ronald Regan. And he is a she.

I see one good Conservative and two fakes.

I even have qualms about Congresswoman Bachmann:

Bachmann plan would cut veterans benefits

That’s from 3 1/2 years ago, so that obviously went nowhere. Unfortunately, drastic cuts are going to have to be made across the board, since current spending cannot continue. We should’ve implemented a Balanced Budget Amendment years ago.

So the FIRST cuts should be on those who served versus welfare moochers and cheats, fake SSDI recipients, food stamp and Section 8 gimmedats?

If you want a true conservative that fully supports a government based upon the Constitution you would do better with Sam Clovis. He clearly overshadowed the others in recent debates.

Sadly kids, unless someone breaks out this month, this one is going to convention. It is a very split vote.
