Joe Roberts letter stirs the pot
September 12, 2006
We are entering the final push in our campaign to return Florida’s First Congressional District to the control of its people. Our campaign has been met with truly unbelievable support from the voters of Northwest Florida, and we are more confident than ever of success in November.
We do, however, need your support and encouragement now, more than ever. We expect the opposition to mount a smear campaign shortly. Miller must go negative because he is on the wrong side of every issue and he has turned his backs on the people of District 1. Miller cannot stand on his deplorable record, nor can he look to George Bush to pull his bacon from the fire again.
With this in mind, I am asking each of you to send a contribution of just $20 to finance the final push of our campaign. I am also asking for your time. We would like to send you a packet of cards to pass pout to your circle of friends, and we have yard signs for you to display.
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement. We look forward to representing you, the people of Northwest Florida, in Congress next year.
Thank you for the invitation but I must point out that since the advent of FDR “a conservative Democrat” * is an oxymoron. Not even Joe Lieberman qualifies except in the founders’ idea of national defense. * (http://www.joeroberts.us/about/biography.htm)
However, your conservation cause is a noble one but the road to preservation is not socialism but through the ideals of our founders’ Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The core of those ideals is individual natural rights.
Property rights is an extension of the individual. Private property not community property is the answer to preservation of resources. Expropriation of property for “noble causes” leads to a tragedy of the commons. [Tibor Machan, The Commons: It’s Tragedies and Other Follies (Hoover Institution Press Publication)]

As usual, you are correct. Go to the Constitution as written and intended in any issue if one wishes to drain the swamp of the convoluted means used by liberal forces “for the public good” and the end of the individual and his and her God-given rights!
