I went to a dessert fundraiser for Jim Rutledge, the candidate for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate that I think can beat Sen. Barbara Mikulski. Here’s a good omen: it was held in the home of a DEMOCRAT who will be changing her voter registration to vote for Jim Rutledge in the primary election on Sept. 14.
What sets Jim Rutledge apart is his grasp of the principles of the Constitution and capitalism that make America the place where people have the freedom to make their dreams come true. First Jim spoke with passion of the Marylanders he’s met as he’s campaigned across the state who are hurting due to the economy-stagnating policies that Obama proposed and Sen. Mikulski supported. THEN he spoke about what wealth is and how it is created by ideas and the motivation of people who are allowed to keep the lion’s share of the wealth they have created. THIS is why Jim Rutledge CAN beat Barbara Mikulski. He understands what wealth is, how it is created and the system it needs to prosper and grow. Jim Rutledge knows how to unleash the creativity of the individual to create the wealth and jobs that will restore Maryland and America to prosperity. If I have good video of Jim making these points, I’ll have it up in a day or two.
