Impressive! Decorated, retired Army Colonel – Republican Chris Gibson, running for Congress in New York’s District 20 against phony “blue dog” Democrat Scott Murphy, is more than just incredibly knowledgeable and articulate in promoting better, smarter government and policy, his credentials alone speak volumes to Gibson’s ability to lead during an era begging for leadership.
Military historian and columnist, Victor Davis Hanson, says the following about Chris Gibson:
Chris Gibson is different from the rest of us. His past is almost mythical: PhD from Cornell, author of a good book on military/civilian relations, 24 years in the military, retired at rank of colonel, West Point instructor, 7 overseas deployments (4 in Iraq), a medal winner for gallantry (4 bronze stars), wounded in battle (purple heart) — it goes on and on. I met him when he was a security fellow at Hoover, and again in Iraq when deployed in Anbar province during the surge in 2007. I don’t think I have ever met anyone quite like him — fearless, soft-spoken, 19th century in belief and comportment, honest.
If Gibson makes it to Congress, creating jobs and stabilizing the economy is his priority. “Small business owners will tell you that removing impediments to growth will create jobs,” says Gibson who proceeds to outline three impediments to job growth that if removed, would benefit the economy:
1. Excessive taxation on small business in New York keeps small businesses from hiring new workers.
2. Burdensome regulation extinguishes creative ideas and stunts would-be projects from succeeding.
3. Repeal and replace the health care bill with one that truly reduces costs, adds competition, transparency and tort reform.
Democrat Scott Murphy pretending to be a fiscal conservative
The following statement is from the Murphy campaign published in Bignews.biz on July 15:
Congressman Scott Murphy (NY-20) sent a letter to the House Leadership along with other members of the Blue Dog Coalition urging them to properly impose budget enforcement mechanisms that cut and restrain the growth in federal spending…Congress must make sure that deficit reduction continues to be a top priority and that we reduce spending and pay for our priorities both now and in the future.
If only the Murphy campaign meant what it said, voters in District 20 would not be so angered by the runaway spending and borrowing conducted by the current administration and its hopeless followers – Democrats in Congress, including Scott Murphy.
Murphy is such a “fiscal conservative” he votes with admitted liberal spender Speaker Pelosi 90% of the time. Murphy voted for the health care bill. By doing so, he voted for higher taxes, more borrowing, and bigger deficits. Murphy is in support of cap & trade legislation designed to tax Americans for energy use. Implementation dictates that higher taxes will lead to more borrowing and larger deficits. Calling Murphy a “fiscal conservative” is like calling Fidel Castro a protector of human rights.
Repeal and Replace the Democrat in District 20
For Democrats in New York, District 20 is about as vulnerable as it gets. Murphy beat Republican Jim Tedisco by less than 1,000 votes in a special election early last year. The reason why Murphy won is because he campaigned as a “fiscal conservative” which is what the voters want. Unfortunately, however, Murphy governs like a fiscal nightmare. Nothing is scarier than knowing that future generations will have to pay for the out of control government growth and spending that has amassed in the past year and a half.
The only way Americans can pay for such reckless habits in Congress, is by creating opportunities for business and growth. Here is the chance of a lifetime, to elect Chris Gibson to Congress, a representative from New York who has the momentum, ability and fortitude to oust Murphy and send a strong message to other hypocrite Democrats in Congress like Murphy:
Actions speak louder than words. Either act like a fiscal conservative and stop spending tax payer money, or say bye-bye in November.
Spread the word, Chris Gibson is an A+ candidate, who says what he means, and means what he says. District 20 is lucky to have him! (God bless you Chris – best of luck!)
