Recently, two citizens running for the House of Representatives from the state of New Mexico participated in a debate.
Michelle Lujan-Grisham currently is the Representative for District 1 in New Mexico. Her challenger is Mike Frese, a Corrales scientist.
Obviously, their view on the role of government are completely different.
Mr. Frese wants to cut back on Federal government regulations, eliminate some Federal programs, shift more control back from Washington to state and local leaders. He, in essence, wants to decentralize power and give you and I more control of what happens in our communities, believing that we live here and have a vested interest in making decisions that affect ourselves and our neighbors.
Michelle Lujan-Grisham has the opposing vision and wants Federal and State government to work together to help private enterprise. She wants to stop poverty, expand health programs and insurance, and, by implication, use government to do for people what they can’t or won’t do for themselves.
So there you have it. Two conflicting views of government.
If the government helped private enterprise so well in New Mexico we should have a vibrant economy here because we are totally dependent on government.
If government programs ended poverty we should have no poverty in New Mexico because we have plenty of government programs.
Private enterprise pays for government and when government starts to pick and choose winners and losers we get even more crony capitalism than we already have.
It seems like state involvement in business is a trademark of Communism and Socialism.
It seems that you have a clear choice in this race as well as the race between Allen Weh and Tom Udall in the Senate.
What do you want? Suffocating central control with government helping some and taking from some to give to others, or a place where private enterprise reins and those who have ideas and solve problems succeed and those who don’t fail?
We believe government is failing New Mexicans on all levels and asking us to vote for more government is like asking us to step off a chair with a rope around our necks.
Michelle Lujan-Grisham, whose family runs New Mexico politics, needs to be sent home.
We like Mike Frese’s vision better. Understand that he will only get a fraction of what he wants in Congress yet his eyes are pointing in the right direction.
Michelle Lujan-Grisham is just another big government welfare state devotee. This costs money and if you have money you will pay for her vision.
You make the choice.
