Attention MO 1st District Readers

I get emails and talk to people all of the time regarding their dislike of Lacy Clay. People on both sides of the aisle lament their disdain for him. Republicans complain a lack of qualified candidates and Democrats complain that there is just no one to run against him. This is the year to take action.

Whether you do not like Lacy Clay because of his stance on abortion, his stance on illegal immigration, his stance on health care, something else or all of the above, there are several candidates that are running to oppose Clay this year. I have interviewed three of those candidates on this blog and posted those interviews online. I know you all reading them because I have seen the hits. August 3rd is fast approaching and all of the candidates can use your support.

If you can skip the Starbucks coffee for a few days, you can donate $20 to one of the candidates. This will buy some yard signs or car magnets. If you cannot donate your money, donate your time by helping with flyers or make calls. DO SOMETHING. If you ARE doing something, talk to your neighbors, friends or fellow parishioners who you talk to. I know I talk to these people and hear their complaints. Usually they say they guess that will just not vote on that. Not now, not this time. Tell them to take a stand. If they are a Democrat and do not like Lacy, tell them to vote for Candice Britton. If they are a Republican, tell them to vote for Robyn or Martin. If they do not know who to choose, send them to this blog so they can read the interviews. I will re-post links to each interview at the end of this blog entry.

My friends. Lacy Clay is the type of politician we need to get out of office. Now, more than ever, we have the momentum on our side to get him out. He has proven himself to be a part of the machine that is ruining America. His support of Health Care, manipulation of the Census, attempts to circumnavigate the House Ethics Board and continued support of the Rent-to-Own and Payday Loan groups who victimize the lower income community are just samples of what he stands for. Everyone is sick and tired of his holier than thou attitude that has been documented all over the place. Please, work to support a candidate. Lacy can be defeated but it takes more than just complaining to do it.
