Why I Don't Support Senator Brown
The one thing he did I do support is not supporting the war in Iraq. I personally thought that was the wrong thing to do and was simply revenge for 9-11. It took out the bladder that Iraq was to Iran and now Iran is our major enemy in the world. But he is too liberal for me to support. Brown is an advocate of equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people. I understand many good people think that is OK but I for one cannot support that.
He is an advocate for and voted for the Affordable Health Care Act. That act that was never read before voted on and is not affordable. In the feable attempt to "make health care more affordable" they actually increased the cost of it at a time we cannot afford it.
Brown has criticized free trade with China and other countries. In a 2006 Washington Post article, Brown argued against free trade on the grounds that labor activism was responsible for the growth of the U.S. middle class, and that the U.S. economy is harmed by trade relations with countries that lack the kind of labor regulations that have resulted from that activism.
In 2011, the Columbus Dispatch noted that Brown "loves to rail against international trade agreements." Brown's book, Myths of Free Trade, argues that "an unregulated global economy is a threat to all of us." He recommends adopting measures that would allow for emergency tariffs, protect Buy America laws, including those that give preference to minority and women-owned businesses, and hold foreign producers to American labor and environmental standards.
Brown is a career politician since they day he graduated from college. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Russian studies from Yale University in 1974. At Yale, he was in Davenport College, the same residential college as U.S. Presidents George H. W. and George W. Bush. He went on to receive a Master of Public Administration degree and a Master of Arts degree in education from the Ohio State University in Columbus in 1979 and 1981, respectively. He taught at the Mansfield branch campus of The Ohio State University from 1979 to 1981.
I don't know about you, but I am not too happy with our career politicians. Senator Brown is on the far left and I don't support his positions. Since Congress is in deadlock and our country is not progressing, I believe what Josh Mandel says, ""He's just a politician we can't trust." "The only way we can change Washington is change the people we send to Washington."
I support the young man in the picture, not the career politician who should be out of the picture.
