OOPS! It looks like someone somewhere hit a nerve! Actually we find it very interesting that Mr. Lewis would post something like this on his FaceBook page.
Some how we find this entertaining, kinda like the ole adage “If this isn’t the Pot calling the Kettle Black?” It seems that when these tactics are used against honorable “MEN” like Rep. Larry G. Pittman, NC House District 82, that is just looked upon as Politics As Usual. However when it hits a little closer to home and Mr. Lewis’s group of choice is not the one telling the lies or demeaning the “OTHER GUY” then it’s time for the long claws to come out. (Of course we do live in the south and it is the honorable thing for Mr. Lewis to stand up in defense of his wife, Amy Blake.) Oh and just a fleeting thought, we wonder why Amy Blake chooses not to use her married name Lewis? Never mind we are getting off subject.
Yes we would all be Rolling On the Floor Laughing if it were not so sad. We understand that either the Cabarrus Jobs Now group or their “Candidates of Choice”, Mr. Paul Newton and Mr. Michael Fischer have aligned themselves with the highly controversial campaign adviser Dee Stewart. For anyone who follows NC Politics that name should be very familiar as he has advised many highly controversial campaigns over the years. From what we are told, all of which were famous for dirty politics, mud slinging and out and out lies.
Cabarrus Conservative Alliance has no ax to grind where Mrs. Amy Blake(Lewis) is concerned. We simply believe that her very narrow focus on education, (regardless of how much we agree that it is an important issue) leaves a lot of other issues of equal importance to North Carolina voters out. As pointed out, she is an extremely successful educator and overall an extremely nice and likable lady. Unfortunately for Mrs. Amy Blake(Lewis) the voters in NC Senate District 36 want someone who has a broader focus and is not so laser focused on one issue.
That is why Cabarrus Conservative Alliance is promoting a candidate who we believe is equally as concerned about multiple issues like Parish Moffitt who’s platform shows how he views more of the issues than just Education.
His website indicates he
- Supports Reduced Taxes
- Supports Responsible Government
- Supports 2nd Amendment Rights
- Supports Life
- Supports Education
- Supports Business and Growth
- Opposes Toll Roads
We find ourselves in an extremely unusual situation. That being, we agree with Mr. Lewis about at least one thing. The tactics taken by the Cabarrus Jobs Now Group and their candidates of choice Paul Newton and Michael Fischer against any candidate running for office is wrong. On many occasions we have found our Conservative values in conflict with the positions of many candidates running for office. In every case we have worked hard to point out the differences and to always tell the truth about those candidates backed up with factual information that is publicly available to everyone. Therefore, Cabarrus Conservative Alliance does condemn any push poll, advertisement, mailing or anything else that tells lies about any candidate. Pointing out a difference in positions is one thing, prevarications and outright lying is something quit different.
