Alrighty - Bucks County Courier Times July 3, 2008

I'd like to respond to the Editors of the Courier Times for the view of Tom Manion's entrance into the local Congressional race. They, along with some readers, question the alleged use of a personal tragedy for political gain. I've felt for some time that the best way to honor those lost in war is to become an active member in what they've sacrificed to preserve.
It's not only OK to disagree, but open debate is a healthy and productive way to learn from one another. It's my very deep opinion that this war is the right war at the right time for the right reasons. Freedom is the number one threat to dictators and tyrants whose intense corruption is fed by the oppression of their own people.
It's almost impossible to understand war, but our cherished way of life diminishes with every depraved advance and eventually there's no alternative to action. The type of duty, courage and leadership that steps forward when needed is what will produce consistent results across the broad spectrum of today's critical issues.
We almost don't recognize political candidates who put people over party because it's so rare today. Those who put politics above all else exploit whatever they can of candidates who are running for the right reasons. It's encouraging to see a Tom Manion put himself in this position and stay focused while party establishment loyalists seek weakness.
We can disagree about a lot of things, but we must ultimately stand united. Win or lose I look forward to thanking Mr. Manion for demonstrating dignity, strength and judgment. These traits are neither Republican nor Democrat, but are American and are very consistent with the qualifications to be our next Representative in Congress.
