Experience Counts in Desperate Times

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government,
our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”
–Samuel Adams, Patriot (1780)

Now is that time, and the U.S. Senate race in Missouri is that battleground seat. Without proven and tested representation at the highest levels of leadership, it appears that the ruin of our republic is imminent. Let me make a few points:

  • The U.S. Senate is not the place to start an untested, inexperienced person in office. We need solid, conservative experience in this high office. (Look what inexperience got us in the Oval Office.)
  • Proven character is needed to avoid the landmines of indulgence, pride, and position.
  • Experience is needed to maneuver around high powered lobbying inside and outside the D.C. beltway.
  • A seasoned veteran is needed on “day one” to understand and use the convoluted rules of the legislative process.


Of the 435 Representatives in the House, Todd Akin is ranked 21st most conservative by a range of very conservative watchdog groups. (See Chart) Did you get that?? 21 out of 435! That’s in the top 5%–way above some of the most noted and popular conservatives.

Todd Akin is being maliciously maligned and mischaracterized by opponents who know he cannot be controlled by party, big money, establishment–anybody or anything other than bedrock Constitutional principle. They are twisting and misinterpreting his conservative record. They are impugning his motives and actions. They will do anything to win. But Todd will not go after them in the same manner. He will show respect even to the disrespectful. Todd Akin represents the values of God-fearing, Constitutional-loving patriots as one who will stand for faith, family, and freedom. Todd is a man of faith who loves God, who protects family, and who cherishes liberty. He will protect those values. His rhetoric and his record show this to be true. Todd does not simply aspire to high office, he aspires to serve his country, his constituents, and his Creator.

Todd Akin represents my values and he has my wholehearted endorsement and my vote.
