Carroll Calls On Supporters to Wage a Social Media Blitz.
We don’t have mainland PAC’s to run television ads about how great we are, but what we do have is people like you. We need your help now to get our message out. I’ve prepared a simple flyer that can be sent via the internet by my supporters; downloaded and copied on your printers and posted in Facebook. I want you all to “like” it, to “resend” it, to “Twitter” it, to “Pin” it, and to send it to every single person on your email lists. I need you to do all of those things for me in these final weeks of the campaign. Because Republicans need to know they still have a choice.
I’ve picked four of the best reasons why no real Republican should vote for Linda Lingle in the August 11th primary:
John Carroll is asking his friends to send this message to everyone they know on the Internet.
1. Lingle renigged on the Taxpayer Protection Pledge she had signed by allowing the largest tax increase in the history of Hawaii; she allowed the rail excise tax surcharge. I have signed the No New Tax pledge this year and Lingle has not.
2. Like many conservative Republicans, I am pro-life. Lingle has always been pro-choice, and is soft on Obamacare. While I view Obamacare to be an intrusion on the constitutional separation of Church and State, Mrs. Lingle see’s no such problem.
3. I think that the archaic Jones Act is the main reason that our economy in Hawaii suffers and our cost of living is 30% (at least) higher than it should be. This old law protects Matson and A&B’s virtual monopoly on shipping to Hawaii, and drastically limits our ability to ship local products out and import the materials our businesses need to compete. Lingle supports the Jones Act, and takes massive amounts of campaign contributions from A&B and Matson. I have taken NO money from PAC’s, and will represent the peoples’ interests, not those of my big contributors.
4. And worst of all, Lingle has renounced the very principles of the Republican Party. She can’t even bring herself to be called a Republican; choosing instead to label herself a “bipartisan.” She has refused to debate her Republican rivals, and proceed to run against her assumed opponents in the General Election, where she sounds like a Democrat and supporter of President Obama. She has so arrogantly assumed her victory in the Republican Primary that she has proceeded to throw our values and principles “under the bus.” Stand up for what we Conservatives believe, and let Mrs. Lingle know that you are not sheep to be herded in line with her political ambitions. Stand up for your beliefs, and stand with me!
PLEASE HELP ME GET THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE OUT TO OUR FELLOW REPUBLICANS BY AUGUST 11TH.
