Muskogee Politico's Picks - Federal Races

Muskogee Politico's Picks for Federal Races
  • Congressional District 2 - Rep. Dan Boren (D, Muskogee)
The Muskogee Politico endorses Rep. Dan Boren for re-election. Boren is pretty conservative (for a Democrat), and fits the district well. He's fairly pro-life, one of the more pro-life Democrat's in Congress. He's also pro-Second Amendment; after all, Boren sits on the NRA board of directors.

His opponent, Raymond Wickson, is a perennial candidate, and frankly should not run for office at all. The Muskogee Politico heard him speak once... and it was disastrous. The only reason to vote for him would be the same as for the Muskogee County sheriff race: to increase the Republican vote percentage to encourage future candidates.
  • U.S. Senate - Sen. Jim Inhofe (R, Tulsa)
Sen. Jim Inhofe wins the Muskogee Politico's endorsement hands-down. A strong conservative, Inhofe represents Oklahoma well. His firm stance against the global warming pseudo-religion has made him a target for liberals world-wide, but Sen. Inhofe refuses to back down.

His opponent is extremely liberal, and is being supported by other ultra-liberals from across the nation. He's too liberal for Oklahoma, and that's just one more reason why Sen. Jim Inhofe needs to be re-elected.
  • President - Sen. John McCain/Gov. Sarah Palin (R, AZ/AK)
In the race for President, Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin, his running mate, win our endorsement. The reasons are many, but I'll name a few.

The McCain/Palin ticket will uphold our Second Amendment rights; Obama/Biden are against them. McCain/Palin will fight for pro-life issues; Obama/Biden are extremely pro-abortion, and will try to extend abortion rights. McCain/Palin will win the War on Terror, and will not meet with terrorists and dictators; Obama/Biden have a dangerous foreign policy. McCain/Palin will cut taxes; Obama/Biden want to raise taxes, and pursue socialistic policies. And, perhaps most important, McCain/Palin will appoint strict constructionist justices to the Supreme Court, while Obama/Biden will appoint liberal activists to the Court.

America needs John McCain and Sarah Palin; Barack Obama and Joe Biden are too liberal and too dangerous for America.
