Perhaps Mr. Long you could show all of us that you are not just another crooked politician.

Why not come on here and tell us where you really stand?

What is your position on drilling?

What experience do you have?

What will you change if elected?

Feel free to add to the list.

The negative tone of the first comment is sad. I personally know Carl to be an honest, hard working family man who is TRULY interested in bettering our community. His ads clearly state some of his goals and objectives. It is refreshing to see a young person willing to enter a race and serve our area's citizens.

To 5:07 Goes with the turf, if you can't handle a few negative blogs....politics is not for the faint of heart. I would agree he appears sincere. Best of luck...Not a bad idea to adress more about himself maybe Jim could run a meet the candidate profile, with Q&A to be answered by the candidates...how bout it Jim?

Good Idea! Remind me about a month before the primary.

A couple of weeks ago there were interviews with all three candidates for the chairman ship in the Endeavor. They have a website with free viewing of the past copies of the paper so I think you could check it out there.

5:07 if my tone seemed negative to you it's because my perception of politicians has become a negative one.

I think I speak for many when I say I'm tired of being lied to, tired of empty promises, tired of hearing the same old things from every politician only in different words.

I am not saying that Mr. Long is any of these things, I am asking him to show us that he is not just another politician that is going to tell us what we want to hear to get elected.

As a registered Republican I would like Mr. Long to come here and open a dialogue with us.

What could be a better platform for all of us to discuss such matters?

Solomonswords gives us the ability to have such discussions. So lets do it :)

I truly hope that Mr. Long does have his community and our best interests at heart. Here's an opportunity for all of us to learn about who he is, and what he will he do, from him himself.

I love the idea of Q&A or meet the candidate right here on Solomons.

Jim can do a live Q&A event. For all the candidates even, not just Mr. Long.

Gotta agree with 10:22. I'm betting Mr is a fine person and I hope he does well.

But people are weary. Doesn't matter if you are a D or R they all say the same thing over and over again

I stand for:

Family values
Lower Taxes
Less Spending
Strong Defense
Advancing Democracy
Investing in America
Less Government
better schools for all
less welfare (there are kids going to college getting food stamps)
free lunches
free housing
and on and on

It doesn't matter what they say, because it doesn't happen.

No politican can discuss the theory of every point of the very document they swear to uphold without a copy in front of them, let alone recite it.

I'm waiting for the politician to put his ass on the line and say "I will do this and such by this date or I will resign and be held resposible for my failure"

I may not know much, but I do know this,compared to 50 years ago:

I work harder

my dollar buys less and less each day

I support a larger and larger government from local to national

I pay over 50% of my income in various forms of taxes when ALL taxes are added up on all I buy and consume

I am less free than 50 years ago

and now
some pinhead bureaucrat, who cant think of a better way to serve mankind, wants me to give them $12 because I choose to have a dog.

and im left with having to deal with the rest of the masses, who condone and further this

Yeah, I guess I'm a little cynical

Those that are cynical should get involved...get in the middle, because you clearly care enough to blog about it. After a Republican Chairman is elected (whoever that may be), they are going to need active oommittee people to help advance things in a better direction than we all feel they are going now. Grill the candidates...that's fine, but let's not wait for someone else to create change for us while we sit in our recliners. Ask what they are about, but then step forward and put your dissatisfaction into motion in a place it might do some (even just little) good. Glad to have 3 candidates willing to get in the middle and plan to do more myself than what I have been doing over the last several years. I challenge everyone else to do the same.

Family values
(Vague statement that means nothing except maybe to force more religion into places it does not belong like government and schools)

Lower Taxes
(Great everyone wants this. How do you do it???)

Less Spending
( Vague statement that completely contradicts these things you list later on like Strong Defense, Investing in America, and better schools)

Strong Defense
( Invest this money in schools and end pointless wars we are currently in now)

Advancing Democracy
(Does this include invading countries that have do nothing to us??)

Investing in America
( Vague and meaningless)

Less Government
( Buzz word Buzz word )

better schools for all
( Can't do this by spending less)

less welfare (there are kids going to college getting food stamps)
(( These kids should starve to death and not get a college education))

free lunches
( Not sure what this even means)

free housing
( Not sure what this even means)
and on and on


But best of luck to Carl you certainly will need it.
