Whether on the campaign trail or simply reading my e-mail, I receive many questions about where I stand on the different issues facing our nation. While I have a page dedicated to many of these issues on my website nancymace.org, I also wanted to take the time today to share with you where I stand on some key issues, and where I differ from my opponent, Senator Lindsey Graham.
With less than seven weeks left, I am asking you to share this e-mail with seven likeminded conservatives, as I am counting on you to help spread our message.
We must stop the NSA spying program now:
While I appreciate the challenges of keeping America safe in a post 9/11 world, I simply value the Forth Amendment rights we hold as Americans too much to forfeit our privacy and freedom to the federal government. Unlike Senator Graham, I do NOT trust this government, or any other government, to be responsible with vast amounts of private information of US citizens.
We cannot raise taxes on American families and businesses:
While many people object to Graham’s less than conservative voting record, it seems Graham’s poor record on taxes and spending gets lost in the debate. I believe Senator Graham’s vote to increase taxes by over $600 billion and his numerous votes for added spending on things like the Wall Street bailout are among his worst as a member of Congress. The people of South Carolina work hard for their money and know better how to spend it than the career politicians and corporate welfare crowd in Washington, DC.
As South Carolina’s next US Senator, I will NOT raise taxes. Period.
The US should concentrate on building up our own country rather than spending money on foreign aid:
Too many politicians and bureaucrats have allowed other priorities to creep into our country’s foreign policy decisions. I believe it is wasteful and shameful that we often give money to country’s that hate our values and burn our flag. America should be focused on what is good for America, not playing geopolitical games to satisfy special interests. As our next US Senator, I will work to ensure no American taxpayers are funding nations that chant, “Death to America.”
I will fight to protect EVERY life with EVERY vote I cast:
While Lindsey Graham likes to talk as if he’s a pro-life conservative, the sad truth is Graham cast two votes that were devastating to the unborn. Senator Graham voted to confirm both Justice Sotomayor and Justice Kagan. Those votes for two pro-choice Supreme Court justices reflect a disconnect with Senator Graham and those of us who see life as a non-negotiable from conception to natural death. As our next US Senator, I will always vote to protect life.
These are just a few topics I believe are important in this race, and a few issues where I believe our current senator is simply wrong. Please forward this e-mail to seven likeminded conservatives today! We must reach as many people as possible over the final seven weeks of this campaign.
I cannot thank you enough for your support!
