Ed Martin is the true conservative in the US Congressional race for the newly formed 2nd District in Missouri and he deserves to be supported. The Democrat/Statist’s policies and rhetoric are detrimental to this country. Being concerned with the direction this country is headed Ed Martin wanted to do something about it. Therefore, Ed Martin ran against Russ Carnahan with a Conservative message for the Third Congressional District of Missouri in the 2010 election when no establishment Republican wanted to do so. The Third Congressional District of Missouri in 2010 favored the Democrats. He came up a little short of votes to win on election night.
Why should a candidate run for office? Should they run only if they are in a secure district, hoping for an easy victory or should they run because the opposing party's policies and rhetoric are detrimental to this country? The establishment GOP did not run against the Incumbent Russ Carnahan. Why? Why did they not challenge Russ Carnahan or Dick Gephardt in the past? Was it because they never wanted to challenge the Democrats and the Status quo? Was it because it would have been a tough election? Was it because that was Dick Gephardt's District, and the Democrat/Statists owned and were entitled to that fiefdom.
Now, the newly formed 2nd District favors a Republican Candidate and Ann Wagner enters the race. Why didn’t Ann Wagner challenge Russ Carnahan or Dick Gephardt in prior elections? Ed Martin is a Conservative and did the leg work in the previous election and his positions have not changed, therefore he deserves to be supported. There is much work to be done to get America back on track and it starts with electing common sense conservatives like Ed Martin to be the people’s representatives.
