McIntyre’s true colors
Over the next few months
we the voters will be hearing a lot about an issue that needs some
insight. That is Rep. Mike McIntyre’s “conservative” voting record. The
first vote members of Congress will take next January says more about a
Congressman’s ideology than anything they can try to convince you of.
That vote will be for their choice of who wields the gavel of the
speaker. That vote is for their choice for the direction of this country
over the next two years.
likes to talk conservative and vote like it when granted permission but
his vote for Speaker Nacny Pelosi in 2013 (should he get away with
another election) means that he’d rather side with one of the most
socially liberal and fiscally reckless members of the U.S. House than
the conservatives he claims to align with.
McIntyre win a ninth term, his vote for Speaker translates into higher
taxes, more bureaucratic red tape on small business and more debt.
McIntyre has had his chances in the past to switch party affiliations
and he has had eight chances to cast a vote for conservative leadership.
He has conned us with his conservative disguise far too long. Vote David Rouzer
in November and at the very least cast Southeastern North Carolina’s
vote for conservative leadership and a sustainable economically social
future for our children. McIntyre may not support Obama but Obama will
support McIntyre. Your vote for McIntyre or against Rouzer tells us
about which direction you want the country to go.
