Why Would Chuck DeVore and Barbara Boxer Run?

Posted By CotoBlogzz  | 04/10/09 | 07:44 PM | 


If you were told that the political office of your choice was available and if you were to run, you would not only be competitive, but victory could  be assured, would you not run? 

Whether Assemblyman Chuck DeVore can emerge victorious in his bid to unseat Senator Boxer in 2010 is open for debate.  However, he says he is interested.  He is running for the United States Senate in 2010, because “California deserves strong, active, and conservative representation in Washington, D.C.” and  because DeVore believes:

  • "Our natural rights are inherent to our humanity, not a grant from government.
  • The role of government is limited to securing our rights from external danger and internal lawlessness. 
  • That when government exceeds this mandate, our liberty is at risk.  As George Washington said, “Government is not reason, it is not eloquent; it is force.  Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
  •  
Assemblyman Chuck DeVore
  • For too long now, our elected representatives have softly encouraged us to give up our independence to government.  Year after year, we see government’s responsibilities grow while our personal liberty shrinks."


Now consider the following:


Now consider that the US  Congress' job approval rating is the lowest in the 34-year Gallup Poll history of asking the question.  A 2006 Harris Poll concluded that  doctors and teachers are the most trusted among 22 occupations and professions, with the least trusted professions being  journalists, members of Congress, organized labor leaders, stockbrokers, lawyers and actors


Still interested?

Now consider so-called journalists such as Keith  Olbermann mocking Governor Sarah Palin during NFL football games!  What about Bill Maher mocking the governor? Not to mention the unspeakable mocking of the governor by rappers under the guise of art and freedom of expression!

Still Interested?

So, we asked both Assemblyman Chuck DeVore and Senator Barbara Boxer the following:  Under the current political environment, why would anyone in his or her right mind run for public office?

Earlier this week, I spent a few minutes on the phone with Assemblyman DeVore trying to understand his motivation for pursuing a political office that will turn him into a big target for cheap shots and vilification.

In the process we discussed a number of issues, including President Obama’s European trip,  the President’s stern message to South Korea anent a rocket launch and the President’s eloquence on the Armenian Genocide during his meeting with the Turkish Prime Minister.  We also got to touch on the issue of traditional marriage.

The more questions I asked in order to ascertain why the Assemblyman is willing to pay the high price, the more we came back to the same answer:  Principle.

Might DeVore's stand be analogous to the story of courage under fire set in days of the Persian Empire, when Esther and the Jewish people were brought to the very edge of destruction?

Esther’s faith in God was a closely guarded secret known only to her people, and certainly not to her husband, the King.  Then a villain is promoted to the King’s second in command and soon the villain decides that all the people in the kingdom are going to bow down to the King as a sign of  respect,  planning  the genocide of all the Jewish people throughout the Persian Empire. At this point, Esther is asked to run – that is, she is being asked to stand up and risk being killed by her husband.
 
What does Queen Esther do? She  courageously tells the king that she and her people, the Jews are in mortal danger. The King is furious!  The villain  is taken away and receives the consequences of his hatred and his bitterness.

We know the President bowed to a king (not  The King)   Assemblyman DeVore has stated he will stand on principle.  What will Senator Boxer do?

We are waiting to hear from the Senator....

No.

Hope this helps,

(Your post is correct in addressing the mocking issue head-on, though.  DeVore has some definite issues on the mockability front.)

 

Vacuous Offering

Assemblyman DeVore seems to be addressing the state’s and national issues head on, ramifications be damned. He does have a verifiable record of standing on principle and that means a good segment of the voters may not like him or his principles.

On the other hand, there are demagogues who easily say that the mass murder of 1.5 million Armenian’s is genocide, when he is with Armenians, but will say that “such matters are for historians”, when talking to the Turks. Or say that Jerusalem must not be divided, or say that the US is not a Christian nation, or say that America should not compromise her values, then authorize millions to murder the voiceless, bow to a king (not The King) …....you get the point.

I will take the former any day of the week!- Buzz
