No To Mark Kirk Blog No Longer Active: It Met Its Purpose
Op-ed by J Cleary
In August, I created a blog which brought attention to U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk's campaign for the U.S. Senate. The blog, titled "Republicans United Against Mark Kirk" included information regarding Kirk's voting record as a member of the U.S House of Representatives. The "No To Mark Kirk" blog referred readers to articles, letters to the editor and columns which were posted by numerous Internet sources. My intent was to shed light on this so-called Republican's position on issues which social and fiscal conservatives care deeply about. Kirk's pro-abortion, anti-Second Amendment and anti-traditional marriage views were exposed on my blog. The "No To Mark Kirk" site also revealed the voting record of this Democrat, posing as a Republican, on issues like Cap and Trade, sponsoring hate crime legislation and support for big government and higher taxation.
As I said in an earlier column, this was the first time I had ever been motivated to get involved with politics. However, I felt exposing Kirk's liberal record on issues was that important. Frankly, to be honest, since I could not keep up with all of the facts concerning Kirk's opposition to the Republican state and national platforms, I decided I had at least made an effort to expose Mark Kirk for what he is...a tax and spend, anti-family liberal. But for those looking for more information about Kirk, there are some web sites and blogs which expose the Representative from the 10th Congressional District's political record.
Here are some suggestions about where to read more regarding Kirk's candidacy and his voting record in Congress. The following web sites and blogs should be considered by anyone not only looking for information about Mark Kirk, but info on Illinois politics in general:
Anyone interested in learning about Mark Kirk's voting record on issues you care about, go to your favorite search engine and type in Mark Kirk, i.e., Cap and Trade, abortion, Second Amendment, etc.
CORRECTION: The op-ed by J Cleary--as first posted--incorrectly identified Mark Kirk as representing the 14th Congressional District. The above op-ed now reflects the correct district--which is the 10th U.S. Congressional District in Illinois.
