Conservatism needed in 3rd District


Sunday, April 15, 2018

In 2014 I had the opportunity to intern for Congressman Walter Jones. I was a junior in college, new to the political arena, and excited to be helping with what I thought was a "good cause." I was stuck in thought that Rep. Jones was going up against an "evil lobbyist" trying to sell out our district.

However, after that race, I began to do my own research. To my surprise, I saw parts of Jones’ record that many people do not know, and I was disappointed at what was behind the curtain. From missing Armed Service Committee meetings (the only committee he sits on), to voting against our National Defense Authorization Act, voting against Israel (he received money from J-Street Lobbying Firm, an anti-Israel lobbying group) and as of late, voting against the Republican Tax Plan.

As a conservative, I know that the principles of a conservative are to have ethical understanding of topics restored while seeking limited government and standing up for individual rights.

Scott Dacey, knows the true meaning. His conservative values align with this district and he truly has the best interests of eastern North Carolina in mind. He will stand up for life, smaller government, and free market principles to put our economy back to work. Dacey has worked hard as county commissioner, from helping lead the battle against of the opioid crisis to standing up for Cherry Point Air Base in Havelock.

President George W. Bush once said in an address to the nation, “We're in a fight for our principles, and our first responsibility is to live by them.” I have great respect for Congressman Jones, but after seeing his record, I believe eastern North Carolina deserves better.

That's why I strongly encourage my fellow Republicans to support Scott Dacey for Congress.

I don’t like or trust the current resident of the White House. I have serious qualms concerning the president of Russia. And I truly detest mass-murderer Netanyahu.

Who can we trust? I trust the governor of Ohio, John Kasich. He is a proven fiscal and social moderate. The people of Ohio…

Sunday, July 22, is an exciting day for those of us who have dedicated our lives to renewing the Catholic Church. It is the feast day of Mary Magdalene who for centuries, due to poor Biblical interpretation by Pope Gregory, was falsely labeled a prostitute. Jesus chose her to be the first witness…

Why would so many be amazed or surprised that Trump committed treason on Monday? He has done just that many times in the past, only in different ways. “There is no collusion.” What? He colluded with Putin right in front of us. Citizens continue to wonder if Trump and Putin/Russia have…

I thank The Reflector for Tom Campbell's piece in the July 7 edition, "Civic Clubs Offer Path to Community Pride."

Indeed they do. And I can speak from experience since I joined Kiwanis Club of Greenville eight years ago and have felt rewarded many fold. A woman I was courting and later married was…

I would like to thank you for the July 13th editorial, “Congress unwilling to address federal spending.” It accurately points out the dangerous fiscal path down which our country is headed.

As the editorial notes, within 10 years the federal government will annually spend more on…

Brett Kavanaugh is the wrong choice to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. If he is confirmed to the Supreme Court, everything that we hold dear as a nation will be at stake.

From a protecting a woman’s right to choose to dismantling the Affordable Care Act, Kavanaugh could…

The recent article about State Treasurer Dale Folwell and the ECU Physicians-Vidant Health merger perplexes me.

I’m not a health care professional, business executive or attorney— just a North Carolina taxpayer. So maybe I’m dense or ill informed. But why did the article say…

A president under investigation for colluding with a foreign power (and known enemy of the United States) should not be allowed to appoint Supreme Court justices.

When that president picks a nominee who has stated that sitting president should not be subject to indictment nor subjected to civil…

From time to time the idea of a pedestrian bridge across the Tar River to River Park North is mentioned. For example, a Reflector article in 2016 estimated the price of such a bridge at $7 million-$20 million dollars! That price tag scares many citizens off. That's a shame because River Park North…

I have a theory that a couple of the daily Bless Your Heart contributors are the same Looney Tunes that respond on reflector.com. I can’t be sure because they hide under anonymity. For example is the BYH that there was no federal law that required or suggested family separation before…
