From Denver McMullen

By Staff | Jan 27, 2010

Unlike Michelle Obama, I have always been proud of my country. Proud of the principals of government and conduct set forth by our founders and by the example they set as a testament to those principals.

We have strayed from the course they charted on many occasions during our history, but like a listing vessel we have managed to right ourselves and continue on course.

The State of Massachusetts did this very thing on Jan. 19 of this year. They threw off a one-party rule that was instituted in 1972 with the election of Ted Kennedy. Surely the people of the 1st District of West Virginia, in whose veins course the blood of our magnificent and fiercely independent fore bearers, will rise up and do the same as the people of Massachusetts. Let us elect as our representative, a person of character who will do honor to our Constitution.

Alan Mollohan has filed for re-election. This is a person said to be one of the most corrupt members of the House of Representatives. A man who supports and stated he will vote for the so-called “Health Bill”-a piece of work that will not pass Constitutional muster according to most scholars, and a man who voted to continue funding the sinister group ACORN, etc.

If the good and right-thinking people of the great state of Massachusetts can deny office to a candidate with no legislative record, surely we can oust a person with a record as shabby as Alan Mollohan’s.

Many folks have filed for that position. Let’s examine each of those candidates and get their commitment to uphold our Constitutional values before deciding. And when that person replaces Mr. Mollohan they must know that they can be replaced in 2012. Something we should have done 28 years ago. We deserve better.
