Closing Arguments - The Spider's Web of Dependency
Governor Bentley got it right in his 2014 state of the state address when he said,
Good people live here. And we must all serve them and offer them greater opportunity to prosper if we are to ever see our state rise from the depths of deficiency.
We will never see an end to the plague of poverty by offering a deeper dependence on a flawed government system. We will never help our poorest citizens, or our future generations by casting over them the net of federal government giveaway programs.
We can break the cycle of poverty, but not with programs that drag our communities and our people into the downward spiral of dependence.
That is why we will not expand on a flawed and broken system that encourages greater reliance, not on self, but on government, pulling even more of our vulnerable citizens into what President Ronald Reagan called the "spider's web of dependency."
We will help no one if we continually make decisions that ultimately offer little hope for our citizens while driving this great nation deeper into debt.
There is never freedom for the Breadwinner who is dependent on the government. Freedom is only found in the Land that offers Opportunity. That comes from hard work and sacrifice.
One party is eager to reward the hard work and sacrifice that made America the greatest country and the best place to live in the world. The other party is not.

Holding Candidates Accountable PDF Print E-mail

Holding Candidates Accountable
by Debra Kizer (GOP nominee for Madison County License Director)
When selecting a candidate to fill some role within a company or office, the most important traits to consider are one's work ethic, one's experience working with and for others, and one's ability to effect positive change. Substantial results hinge on these attributes. Without them, all other credentials become meaningless. No amount of prior time on a job will overcome the detriment of an uninvested worker who is distracted by other interests, or simply not committed to the success of his office.
The same is true when considering candidates for a political office. Far too often, the security of a tenured position can lull one into a sense of complacency that compromises the integrity of the office to which they were elected to serve, and the end result can be a placing of one's own interests before the interests of the position they hold on behalf of the public. It is easy to distinguish this type of public servant from the ideal. He does not effect positive change, or even seem to try to. In contrast, the honest public servant is just that – a person who is in the office day in and day out, year-round, not just during an election cycle.

Great leadership in public office starts with a sense of service; it is the responsibility of the public servant to serve, as should be self-evident. Leadership by example cannot be performed by a person who is out of the office far more often than they are in it, or by one who seems to be more invested in side-jobs and outside interests than effecting positive change in the position that has been entrusted to him. This November, protect your interests and the interests of your community by electing officials who will be accountable to the proper expectations for the office.

Editor's note. Debra Kizer is the GOP nominee for Madison County License Director. This is an important office with which most every citizen conducts business every year. Debra Kizer has the servant's and energy heart which the position requires and has been missing much too long.

General Election Ballot Amendments PDF Print E-mail

General Election Ballot Amendments
by Thomas Scovill
Alabama 2014 General Election Ballot Measures. There are five proposed amendments on the general election ballot. One would raid the Alabama Trust Fund to pay for more borrowing (hiss) and one would help protect the right to bear arms by requiring strict legal scrutiny of proposed restrictions (smile). Here are the proposed amendments and how I plan to vote:
Vote YES on Amendment 1. Forbids state's recognition of laws violating state policies, including all foreign law.
Vote NO on Amendment 2. Increases the amount of the General Obligation Bonds authorized by $50 million to be repaid from the Alabama Trust Fund (ATF). Vote NO because, even though it would permit the state to borrow $50 million to pay for National Guard armories, raiding the ATF yet again is a terrible idea. In recent years the legislature has raided the ATF for nearly $1 billion, most of which has yet to be repaid. These were bad precedents and should not so soon be repeated. The ATF is not a candy jar for lawmakers (see bill and votes at OpenBama).
Vote YES on Amendment 3. Protects right to bear arms; requires strict scrutiny of any restriction on the right. Vote YES because it would make it modestly more difficult for state or federal law or treaty to interfere with an existing right.
Vote YES on Amendment 4. Requires a two-thirds vote of the legislature to enact a law which would require local boards to increase expenditures by $50,000 or more unless the legislature also provides the funding for the increase. Vote YES because it helps limit unfunded mandates.

Vote YES on Amendment 5. Sportsperson’s Bill of Rights. Clarifies that the people have the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife subject to reasonable regulations. Vote YES because it's a modest clarification that might make it harder for government to abuse an existing right.

President Obama Says He Is On the Ballot
by Thomas Scovill
At the candidate forum at Oakwood University church on September 30, Rep. Jim Patterson (R, HD21) was asked about his campaign ads. The questioner said he was confused about who Jim thinks his opponent is because he was seeing Patterson ads with President Obama all over them. Jim pointed out correctly that none of his ads had President Obama in them.
But later in the week President Obama said, "I am not on the ballot this fall ... but make no mistake, [my] policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them."
Maybe Jim should do some new ads to please our president and get the debate going on BHO's policies.

This is why local races are important. Madison County Democrats are all in for President Obama and his policies.
