Voting rationale

| Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Voting for conservative Republicans is not about getting more “Rs” than “Ds” into office.

It's about electing men and women who understand the responsibility of fiscal stewardship of our hard-earned tax monies, and that our Constitution, the bedrock of our nation's laws and citizens' rights, cannot be broken or chipped away and must be defended at all levels and at all times.

Conservative Republicans promote policies that are in the best interest of the governed body and not just the best interest of themselves or a chosen few.

They know they are accountable to those who elected them and are willing to be transparent in all their actions.

Conservative Republicans realize government should be a framework that helps all of us to succeed instead of a means of suppressing us.

There is no such thing as an “off year” election; this year is no exception and there are no excuses.

Express your views and convictions and vote for the betterment of your school district, city, county and home community this Nov. 5, because Nov. 6 is just too late.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
