Leadership and Congress

I will not be continuing my Creationism posts today. I do plan to return to them soon.

Then, I plan to answer the response about Iraq. I am sorry for the change in plans. Plans, in reality, often are altered for one reason or another. “The best laid plans … often go astray.” Thank you for your understanding and patience.

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish, barbaric decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

I received my first campaign literature today from a Congressional candidate for the 18th Congressional District. (It was not from Dick Versace.) I am mailing the following letter to the candidate on the 13th. My previous posts dealing with this were in November and were entitled “Congressional Questionnaire,” “Congressional primary candidates for 2008,” and “Congressional Questionnaire, clarifications.” The letter:

Don L. Vance
P.O. Box 481
Morton, Illinois 61550

(Name and address of candidate omitted in this post—my addition)

Dear Mr.

I received your campaign mailing on December 11, 2007. You have some impressive accomplishments as do the other candidates running in the 18th Congressional District. I would expect nothing less from someone seeking an elected position in Congress.

Now, demonstrate your leadership ability that is so desperately lacking from both Republicans and Democrats in Congress by answering the questionnaire that I sent to you and other Congressional candidates on November 14, 2007. (A copy is on my blog—posted Nov 14—if misplaced.) The questionnaire was designed to seek specific answers to specific questions that should be of interest to voters in Illinois. The questionnaire avoids the self proclaiming rhetoric that is present in campaign literature. Are you or are you not willing to publicly acknowledge your position on specific issues and your degree of support for those issues? Or are you content with vague generalities that mean little in helping voters decide what your position is on a given issue?

You, as do all the Congressional candidates contacted, have until January 2, 2008 to return the questionnaire with your answers to me at the above address. I am hoping that you, as well as the other candidates, do possess such leadership qualities and will publicly and specifically address the issues asked in the questionnaire.

Thank you for your time and hopefully for answering the questionnaire.
