4/11 Letters to the Editor

Vote for Birdwell

Dear Editor:

I am weary of career politicians who forget why they are in office. Thank God for the few who know why they are there and work hard for this country.

There is something fundamentally wrong with a system that continues to knowingly put society in harms way in the name of justice. It’s wrong when a society is restricted from changing a system that the overwhelming majority of the people are sick of.

Many of the people you voted to be your representative servants have become your self-serving masters. They put up for sale critical votes to the highest bidder. They look the other way when obvious wrong is done. They wink in the name of sophistication. They laugh behind your back as their ill-gotten gains roll in. They smile sweetly and talk tough. They say all the things you want to hear. But, when push comes to shove, they bargain and compromise you and your children’s future to go along with their so-called leaders. What is right, what is best is set aside in the name of progress and political correctness.

What people in office do and how they vote speaks so loud, I can’t hear what they say anymore. Honest mistakes are one thing, but most of us are tired of outright lies, saying and doing one thing today and changing with the political wind tomorrow.

Lt. Col. (Ret.) Brian Birdwell is running for Kip Averitt’s seat in the Texas Senate. The election is May 8. I had the pleasure of hearing Brian speak at the Christian prayer breakfast in March. The fact he was burned alive during the Sept. 11 attack at the Pentagon does not in it self qualify him to hold office. Neither should it be a reason to deny his right to help lead this state and nation out of our mess. I have made it a point to check this man out and find that he is more than qualified for any office he chooses to run for.

He is a patriot, a war hero, an intelligent pro-life conservative, a life member of the NRA, a family man, a man of integrity and strong principle. We need men and women with strong intestinal fortitude who will stand their ground and not give up or in when the going gets rough.   

I urge you to vote for and support Brian Birdwell (www.brianbirdwell.net).
