Truth Before Dishonor

I would rather be right than popular

Mia Love For Congress (Utah 4th District)

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/01/10


Truth Before Dishonor Officially Endorses Mia Love For US House Of Representatives (UT-4)

Mia Love is a gun-totin (concealed carry) TEA Party Constitutional Conservative. Her Issues Page runs through a very wide array of issues and her TEA Party Common Sense Constitutional Conservative stance on each and every one.

She wants to take power away from the bloated Central Government and return it to We the People, as the Founders and Framers set forth. She has a track record of reducing taxes and cutting spending (not just reducing the rate of growth), causing her city — in her position as the mayor — to improve its credit rating. What’s not to like? (HT Hot Air)

From Mia Love’s September 12, 2011 guest article at The Daily Caller, entitled CBC members stop demonizing tea partiers:

The principles reflected in the tea party are not at odds with the values of black Americans. You don’t have to be white — or black, or Hispanic, or Asian, or anything else — to care about the important issues facing our nation. My priorities of fiscal discipline, personal responsibility and smaller government draw upon my own experience as an American.

My parents immigrated to this country from Haiti with nothing but a strong family and a solid work ethic. My father, who took two jobs to help pay for my education, was a living example of personal responsibility. He is proud to say he didn’t take a handout. When I graduated from college, my father told me, “You will not be a burden to society. You will give back.”

We can no longer afford to keep spending money on programs that aren’t working. Trimming government and getting it out of the way of economic recovery is the best way to create jobs and wealth that enable people to pull themselves out of poverty.

Again, what’s not to like?

    Our esteemed host added his personal endorsement for Mrs Love on The First Street Journal, making it clear that this was his personal endorsement, not TFSJ’s endorsement. I have done the same thing myself, here, with my early, personal endorsement of Rick Perry. We have, in effect, extended to each other the same courtesy, and I certainly thank Mr Hitchcock for that. If the image comes through in this comment, you’ll be able to click on the image for the link to Mrs Love’s campaign website.

    This is very important and very personal to me. After my parents divorced, and my father found child support to be more of an option than an obligation, my mother had three children to rear, on her own. She told me once that a social worker had told her that she would make more money if she quit her job and went on welfare. This was the early 1960s, and there weren’t many jobs for women with nothing more than a high school diploma that paid much above the minimum wage. Nevertheless, with the exception of the child care help she got from her sister — it was 75¢ a day for the ride in Mr McCarty’s cab from our apartment to my Aunt Pat’s and Uncle Joe’s house every morning — she didn’t take any help and kept working.

    The result of that was that she gained job experience and a reputation for not whining and showing up for work, on time, every day, even though she had to walk to work, about a mile, regardless of the weather. Due to that, she was eventually able to get a better job, and a better one after that. By the time I was in college, she was the first female vice present for a medium sized mortgage company in Lexington, Kentucky, and after that became financial director for the Kentucky Housing Corporation, a government agency. She still had never attended college; all that she did was work.

    My mother never told me, in words, what Mrs Love’s father told her, but she absolutely taught it to me in deeds.

  5. Here’s something (for certain people) to think about:

    From what information I have gleaned, Mia Love is Mormon.

    I have written multiple times that Mormons are decidedly not Christians. I even wrote an article stating such. And I am a Fundamentalist Evangelical Protestant Christian (old school variety)*. And yet, here I am endorsing a woman whom I believe to be a Mormon for the US House of Representatives. Let me state my position even more clearly. A woman in my Protestant Denomination cannot, cannot ever, become a Deacon, let alone a Pastor, due specifically to the words of Scripture. And yet, here I am endorsing a woman to become one of only 435 Representatives (out of a nation of over 300 million souls). And, as the editor pointed out, I endorsed a woman to be President of the entire Nation.

    My endorsement of Mia Love, with the background of all this information, will only come as a shock to Liberals who read these words. Conservatives understand.

    As I have also said on numerous occasions, I believe the Bible when it says homosexuality is an abomination. I also believe the Bible when it talks about people being in bondage to their sins, which would necessarily mean homosexuals are enslaved to homosexuality. That said, I have, at the same time, declared my great respect for Jeff, who most definitely supports the homosexual agenda, and aphrael (who never could find the “shift” key for his name), who is an out-of-the-closet homosexual with a “husband” — within their political debating and punditry, despite their being wrong on practically everything.

    That being said, I’m sure it will do nothing to assuage the fears and fear tactics of the anti-Christian Left and their “the Dominionists are trying to take over the Nation” bovine biproduct.

    * It goes without saying that my being a Fundamentalist Evangelical Protestant Christian (old school variety) means that I believe the Catholic Church has very major and egregious flaws, but being a Christian, I believe that doesn’t prevent Catholics from being Christians, despite their flawed doctrines.
