Paul Broun is a bad choice

While on Robert C. Daniel Parkway one recent morning, I noticed two sports utility vehicles with young mothers and children aboard, both displaying local private-school decals on their back windows. Both also displayed “Paul Broun for Senate” bumper stickers. No doubt these parents are paying top dollar for their children’s education, and these mothers value and appreciate education.

How, then, can they justify supporting Broun, a man who says that the Earth is no more than 9,000 years old and that dinosaurs are “lies from the pits of hell?” I would strongly urge all voters having opportunities to meet and greet with Broun during the campaign to take their children’s science books and science encyclopedias from home with them and let Broun point out the lies!

Broun is a scientist of sorts himself – a medical doctor. He even serves on the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Science, Space and Technology, yet he believes the Earth is only 9,000 years old. This fellow is not stable, and I would urge voters to look elsewhere to someone to represent us in the U.S. Senate.

Though his claims to fiscal conservatism may seem alluring, there is a lot more to this guy than meets the eye. Search the Internet and check out his record on Earth’s age, and take a peek at his poor record of supporting animal welfare by visiting the Humane Society of the United States’ website and search Broun’s name. Speaking of animal welfare, do a search for photos of all of the stuffed animals in his congressional office in Washington, D.C., including a full-sized African lion.

Stop Paul Broun before he has a chance to do more damage to those who can’t help themselves.
