Winey: ‘The people’s choice’

To the editor:

What a dilemma we are in.

We have two men running on the conservative ticket for governor, and neither are backed by the conservative movement as a whole.

Each of us, as conservatives, has to decide which candidate we are going to vote for.

There should be a good debate among conservatives to try and help us make up our minds.

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

To anyone reading my e-mails or letters in the Craig paper, you can see I have been kind of flip floppy, myself.

But, I believe I have come to a conclusion.

I am not 100 percent pleased with Dan Maes or Tom Tancredo.

But, what I believe is that we have to fight against the “socialistic” mindset in our nation today.

Mr Hickenlooper is in a political party that is pushing socialism on this nation harder and harder by the minute.

They stand against the very makeup of this great nation.

I believe the “people’s choice,” not just the Republican “people’s choice,” is turning out to be Tom Tancredo, as seen by the Rasmussen polls.

Not all the conservative people consider themselves to be Republicans and would have not voted in the primaries any way.

I hear some say they do not believe the polls, but I am not sure they are much over a 3- or 4-percent error. At least a reputable poll like the Rasmussen poll.

I, for one, am going to vote for Tancredo, after I have weighed all the issues I can. I will not vote for putting another “socialistic” governor in office in Colorado. And, I am afraid that is what a vote for Dan will do.

I do not believe Dan stands a chance, and now I believe that Dan Maes has to take as much blame for this as any one else.

I will listen to good debate on this subject, but am not really much into any more name-calling.

I will be glad when Nov. 3 is here.
