Free Press Letter: Don’t support Cory Gardner this election

With just a few more days until Election Day (Nov. 4), I think most people will be glad that we won’t have to endure the television political ads much longer.

Of course we are somewhat fortunate here in Mesa County as most statewide candidates don’t spend a lot of money on campaign advertising here. They have come to understand that the majority of folks in western Colorado don’t put much thought into their political selections and simply check the name of the candidate with “Republican” next to the name, up and down the ballot; for whatever reason, that may or may not seem logical.

However the big money organizations from outside Colorado that are backing Cory Gardner still purchased TV ad time, seemly just to stir up their political base with the traditional conservative scare tactics. According to those groups’ distortion of reality, the senatorial incumbent is coming for our guns and will eliminate energy sector jobs.

The most annoying and aggravating thing about political commercials is that the people behind their creation seem to believe we are extremely gullible, if not down right ignorant. Fortunately most voters are aware enough to know that Representative Gardner is a member of a congress that has a dismal 10 percent approval rating, mostly due to the extreme partisan politics that have grid-locked Washington. Gardner has participated with a bunch of political hacks that have been so obsessed with undermining the president that they have stopped doing any work for the citizens of this nation and even have taken the extreme tactic of shutting down the government, as just one of many desperate attempts to discredit the president of the United States.

Congressman Gardner isn’t a solution to a problem. He is the problem in Washington D.C. today, and he sure doesn’t deserve to be a senator from Colorado. Smart citizens will remove the partisan extremists from our nation’s capital ... at least I hope so. Of course I give the electorate more credit for having some intelligence than do the people who produce those annoying and insulting political campaign ads.
