Apparently, some people in NKY are freaking out because Geoff Davis "did not endorse Thomas Massie." Umm, ok? Where did it say or even imply that Rep. Davis did? I think it's a great commercial with the words of the Congressman mentioning Thomas on the floor in 2010.

Two letters appeared in the Ashland Daily Independent on Tuesday regarding Thomas Massie:

Many reasons to vote for Massie

Why would anyone vote for Thomas Massie for U.S. Congress?

Could it be he will address the national debt? Could it be he will work for a balanced budget amendment? Maybe it is because of his strong belief in the Second Amendment. Businesses like his stand on reducing regulations that hurt the business climate.

I personally like his pro-life and family commitment. Most Kentuckians support his stand against confiscatory taxes and stopping the stupid spending by the federal government. When he votes in Congress, sending our money to foreign counties will be a no-no.

Most politicians are like snakes. They shed their skins when they get in Congress and voters really get to see who they are. Thomas Massie is cut from the same cloth as Sen. Rand Paul in that what you see now is what you will get when he gets to Washington.

Thomas Massie believes veterans, the defenders of our freedoms, should be better provided for and not forgotten. He does not want our military cut in light of the turmoil in the Middle East.

These are but a few of the reasons why Kentuckians will never be sorry they elected Thomas Massie.

War destroying the Constitution

Americans have witnessed our troops going to war without the constitutionality-required declaration of war for more than 60 years.

All wars fought by the United States since the end of World War II, an average of one every decade, have begun with the United Nations’ authorization and fought with U.N. oversight. As a result, Americans have become accustomed to war and its impositions. With the exception of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, resistance to unconstitutional war is rarely seen.

The main component of America’s foreign policy is war. Most people seem unaware war changes the human condition. Much can be done to alter society through the use of war: more taxes, more regulations and more controls over business, travel, commodities and real money.

As our country is pushed into a state of perpetual war, we’re witnessing the destruction of the U.S. Constitution and the cancellation of freedoms for the American people
