State, nation at critical turn; electing Republicans best answer

By JAMES C. TIDWELL Paducah

EDITOR:

The news out of both Washington and Frankfort on all fronts has reached critical mass towards a literal meltdown in all aspects of our society: economic and moral, civilian and military and in both domestic and foreign policy. The breakdown is pervasive and systemic.

The Democrat Party has driven us to the brink of ruin.

Now, for the sake of the nation and the world, we must make a 180-degree change of direction. In our form of government we have only two choices, Democrat and Republican. At this late hour it has become apparent to more and more thinking voters that we must turn the reins of government over to the Republican Party or face ruin.

When I moved to Paducah in 1965, there was only one choice: you registered Democrat. If you registered Republican, you lost the franchise. Over time that has changed. Today the Republican Party fields knowledgeable, well-qualified candidates for most every partisan office. Here's the line-up in the Paducah area:

U.S. Senate - Mitch McConnell

U.S. House - Ed Whitfield

Kentucky Senate - Danny Carroll

Kentucky House 3rd District - Randy Bridges

Kentucky House 4th District - Lynn Belcher

Kentucky House 1st District - Steven Rudy

Kentucky House 6th District - Keith Travis

County Clerk - Becky Bowers

If ever there was an urgent need for new leadership at all levels it is now. To implement that need, every eligible citizen has a vital responsibility to vote in November. This may well be our last chance before the present administrations in Washington and Frankfort turn us into a liberal, socialist, banana republic for the next 25 years.

The stage is set. The time is now. Vote Republican in November.
