To the Journal Editor:
Where is Gary McDowell? Is he afraid of what he will hear from the local voters regarding his party's mishandling of the economy, foreign policy, health care, financial regulations and public unions? Is he aware that the midterm elections are being closely watched by the most educated population of voters in a very long time, both locally and nationally? It must certainly be, to quote VP Joe Biden, "A big bleeping deal" when a candidate no longer seeks the support of his president or allies with his own party during any election campaign, but in historically temperamental midterms, much less this midterm, it indicates a catastrophic failure within the Democrat party.
Until the Democrats rid themselves of the failed socialist ideas exhibited and implemented by President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and their cohorts, they will remain ignorant of what mainstream American voters are really demanding this time around. Americans are done with the childish and dangerous behavior of the socialist Democrat party as it currently exists.
America, and especially Michigan, needs to look to candidates who understand and respect the Constitution and who will fight to uphold the intended freedoms of all Americans.
America is exceptional. It is time for us to elect exceptional leaders.
