Community Organizer or Rocket Scientist?

Who do you want to oversee your National Defense?

Yes I, Ruth McClung, am a rocket scientist and I am running for Congress in Arizona's 7th district. The man I am running against is a community organizer like our President, and has the distinction of being the most liberal member of Congress. He has voted for numerous bills that are mortgaging our children's futures, including ObamaCare and the stimulus package. Despite showing little fiscal restraint, he has also consistently voted to strip our national defense.

The strength of our nuclear deterrent is an issue that has been in the news lately. As a physicist working for the defense industry, my background uniquely qualifies me to understand and address these issues.

Our nuclear arsenal only serves to defend our nation if it is an effective deterrent. President Obama recently undermined our national defense by releasing a Nuclear Policy Review (NPR) which stated that if a country attacks us with biological or chemical weapons, if that country "is in compliance with the nonproliferation treaty and its obligations, the U.S. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it." His NPR also "determined that the United States will not develop new nuclear warheads ..." even though Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, India, and other countries are all developing new weapons. In addition to this, our President in his first year in office made major cuts to our strategic missile defense programs. Obviously his community organizing skills have not prepared him to defend our great nation.

By making such statements, our President undermines the credibility of our nuclear arsenal, and places our nation, our soldiers, and the rest of the world at needless risk. During the first Persian Gulf War, President George H. W. Bush hinted that he might use nuclear weapons if Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons against our troops. Saddam Hussein believed the threat. After the conflict Bush stated that he had no intention of using nuclear weapons. However the bluff worked to protect our soldiers. President Obama encourages our enemies to deploy horrendous weapons against our nation and our troops by assuring them we will not reply. We need to send a clear message to Washington that the people of this nation will not tolerate our political leaders needlessly undermining the security of the United States.

My opponent is philosophically aligned with President Obama, and is far too radical for the common-sense hard-working people of Arizona's 7th district. He is very vulnerable now because of his liberal policies. However, my opponent has a political machine that wins! Therefore, I really need your help to get the word out. Please consider volunteering or donating online or by mail to my campaign. Together we can ensure than America remains that "shining city on a hill."

Thank you,
Ruth McClung
