It worries me a bit when one of the Club's Board members constantly extolls the virtues of candidates, elected officials and ideas which are anti-environment.
When have I done this? Why can't I be free to believe in what I believe? My views are in line with that of the mainstream of people in the USA.
So what is wrong with having Ronald Reagan as one of my personal heroes? He won 44 out of 50 states in 1980 and 49 out of 50 states in 1984, earning the support of nearly 6 out of every 10 people who voted that year. I was one of his voters that year (the first time I was eligible to vote in a Presidential election), so how could I be outside the mainstream if I voted for the candidate supported by more than 59% of voters and the majority of voters in almost every state?
What is political about the posting about Mount Everest, anyway? I was just commenting on the name of the highest mountain in the world. Leave the current name alone, thank you.
If you don't think that I am doing a good job as a member of the Board, then don't vote for me. However, I am confident that more people agree with me than disagree with me, so I will confidently run on my record when I run for reelection in 2005.
However, the Board is not a political body, so I feel that whatever my political and personal beliefs are should have absolutely no bearing on whether or not I am elected or reelected to the Board.
Highpointer Board Member since Spring 2002.
