My name is Greg Zotta and I am a retired St. Louis Police Officer. On September 24, 2010, I attended the League of Women Voters Candidate forum held at Forest Park Community College, where Russ Carnahan, Ed Martin, and Nicholas Ivanovich, the Candidates for the Third Congressional District of Missouri answered questions posed to them by concerned citizens. As I drove past the Police Association’s headquarters I saw a Russ Carnahan sign in front of the building. Apparently, the Police Association has endorsed Russ Carnahan to remain the US Representative for the Third Congressional District of Missouri. I have just one question for you, “What are you thinking?”
It is the Democrats that are pushing for City control over the St. Louis Police Department in order to steal your pension. The Democrat/Statists are bankrupting this country and are burdening our children with massive amount of debt. Russ has voted for all of the Obama agenda without reading the bills.
Russ Carnahan voted for Obamacare, which will destroy the greatest healthcare system in the world. Obamacare was about CONTROL, not healthcare and it was forced upon us. Peoples premiums will go up and the care will go down; there will be rationing. Other things in Obamacare, which have nothing to do with healthcare are: a 3.8% sales tax on the sale of your home, 1099 forms will have to be completed for sales above $600, and the takeover of Student Loans. There is a lot more in it, after all Nancy Pelosi stated, they had to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill. Furthermore, Obamacare is unconstitutional. He supported the bailout of GM and Chrysler, which as a condition of the bailout thousands of profitable auto dealerships were forced to close costing jobs. He supports Cap and Trade, which will cause our energy prices to skyrocket and make it difficult to sell your home. He supports the moratorium on offshore drilling, costing more jobs. He supports amnesty for illegal immigrants. There is a Value-added tax on their agenda. He helped funnel $107 million to his brother Tom for a wind farm.
Russ Carnahan’s sign says, “Russ delivers for us.” Unfortunately, what he’s delivered are Higher Taxes, More Regulation, and Higher Unemployment and if the Statists get their way Higher Energy Costs and more loss of Freedom. Russ is a rubberstamp for Obama’s radical agenda.
You cannot like the direction this country is headed. There is much work to be done to get America back on track and it starts with electing common sense conservatives to be the people’s representatives. Therefore, I ask you to reconsider your endorsement of Russ Carnahan and take a look at Ed Martin to represent the citizens of the Congressional Third District of Missouri. Check out his website or face book page to find out about his positions or you can contact him for an interview.
