Editor,

Do you really know this man? The Montana Conservation Voters say he supported them 91 percent of the time in 2009, buzz words used by this group are: environmental concerns, open spaces, conservation principals and so on. 

How about NARAL Pro-choice Montana who say he supported them 100 percent of the time in 2009 or the Montana Environmental Information Center where he supported them 90 percent of the time in 2009 or how about the Montana Educational Association-Montana Federation of Teachers whom he supported 100 percent of the time. By the way, these are all lobbyists. If you’re truly interested in voting for the best man for the job spend time finding out who that person really is. Why is anyone admitting they’re a Democrat? For months now we have discovered just how many communists, progressives and socialists are in the Democrat party, we understand clearly their goal is to overthrow the Constitution of the United States, but let’s be honest here, the Republicans aren’t much different, so, what’s my point? You are about to vote in one of the most important elections of your lifetime. Are you following the same path you followed the last election? Are you a party line voter or an informed citizen who votes principal over slogans? Are you an “I’ll vote for the person with the most yard signs,” or a voter who hungers for the truth and will search for it? Do you really know who is running for House District 12? Forget the handouts. Visit the web site Project Vote Smart - American Government, Elections, type in your zip code, then find your current representative. Each organization he supports and who supports him has a web page listed. Read about them, look for specific words, understand who and what you are voting for. If you don’t educate yourself and rely only on friendship, slogans or printed signs you really don’t know this man or anyone running for office. There is more than one candidate in the race for House District 12. Do you really know this man? Do you really understand how important your vote is to the United States of America?
