America’s moral foundation also continues to be destroyed by immoral and unethical politicians who proudly stand for the systematic murder of millions of innocent, unborn children. Our political leaders are elected to serve, defend and protect, and yet many continue to sponsor and vote for legislation that supports and federally funds the murder of our nation’s unborn children. It is unthinkable that any Christian would knowingly cast their vote for a political candidate who is pro-abortion. As Christians, we have a responsibility to act and vote righteously and a pro-abortion vote is not righteous.
If God’s people will act and vote righteously, America’s moral foundation can begin to be restored.

Donnelly qualifies as real extremist
Extremist? That is a catch word used by Joe Donnelly to describe Richard Mourdock. Donnelly, like Obama, cannot run on his failed record, and failed it did! This is why Donnelly is compelled to mislead and brand his opponent with blatant falsehoods. This is simply a ploy to deceive Hoosier voters by distracting them from the real issues. Frankly, Donnelly should understand that Hoosiers are fully aware, more than most, of the issues plaguing them, as well as the nation as a whole.
Donnelly declared that the stimulus would create 75,000 jobs. In fact, Hoosiers lost nearly 9,000 jobs. Also, Donnelly has what I refer to as an identity crisis; at one time he referred to himself as an “Independent,” and another time he referred to himself as a “fiscal conservative.” Obviously, Donnelly doesn’t know what he is other than an opportunist!
Nevertheles, while Mourdock was fighting to save the pension plans of thousands of Hoosiers, Donnelly was busy in D.C. passing legislation that would ultimately sell Hoosier retirement investments for pennies on the dollar.
Twisting and taking phrases out of context to make a point is apparently the only way for Donnelly to gain favorability among Hoosier voters. For example, Richard Mourdock’s position on Medicare and Medicaid is valid, if one views it through the framework of the Constitution. Mourdock explained that it was a privilege and not a constitutional right and further explained that it would not even exist as a privilege if both parties fail to work in a bipartisan manner to save it now before it becomes insolvent.
Unfortunately, under the Democrats, the expansion of government entitlements has left millions of Americans to deem it as a right and thus dependent on entitlements for their subsistence.
Mourdock, as state treasurer, worked diligently with both parties in his quest to keep Indiana from becoming insolvent and to date, Indiana is one of the very few states that can show what can be achieved if both parties work together for the common good.
In 2009, Joe Donnelly was named “a partner in Congress,” by President Obama. So, Hoosiers, I ask you, would you rather have Richard Mourdock, a proven leader with private-sector experience, or Joe Donnelly, who is just another smooth-talking politician from D.C. with hedonistic tendencies and a voting record that undoubtedly illustrates that he is, in fact, the extremist?
