I'm taking the unusual step of informing our readers about one very special 30-year-old candidate for Congress in North Carolina. His name is Nathan Tabor. Son of an ordained Baptist minister, a committed Christian active in his local church, a dynamic young leader I am convinced Nathan Tabor is a young champion who can make a true difference for our values in Washington.
Thats why I recently committed to Nathan that I will pray for him and personally assist his campaign. While the actual election is one year away, and our ministries cannot support the candidacy of any prospective leader, I am personally, as one tax-paying citizen, very excited that such a fine young man feels the call of God to run for the North Carolina 5th Congressional seat in the U. S. House of Representatives.
Nathan Tabor has helped build a successful family business in Kernersville, N.C. Revival Soy has over 130 employees and is one of the fastest growing businesses in western North Carolina.
More importantly though, Nathan Tabor is a committed Christian active in his local church and dedicated to serving God through his time, talents and energy.
Nathan and his family have long been strong supporters of conservative faith-based organizations like Tim and Beverly LaHayes Concerned Women For America. Nathan has worked hard on evangelistic outreach efforts in his community through the Harvest Crusade and a community mens Bible study.
On the issues, Nathan Tabor is a rock-solid conservative unflinchingly pro-life, for lower taxes, strongly supportive of traditional family values and for a strong national defense. Nathan Tabor will go to Congress and stand with President Bush.
Nathan is running in an open seat Republican primary and the primary election will be held next spring.
For information on this young man, contact Nathans campaign at www.nathantaborforcongress.com, or e-mail Nathan directly at Nathan@taborforcongress.com.
Your soy dollars at work!
(1) Frankly speaking, 30 years old strikes me as being still 'wet behind the ears' politically -- particularly when one shoots for a Congressional seat for his first effort. While I'll yield that the resume looks good, and I'll stipulate as well to the Conservative credentials, Congress is a place where one can get steamrolled without experience in give-and-take. How can you insure us that you will protect the interests of this area with that lack of experience?
(2) You live in Kernersville -- the eastern outpost of a substantially rural district (no, I can't fault you for where you live thanks to our district lines). Nonetheless, you are presenting yourself to represent the whole district. I've seen nothing thus far of your understanding of your potential constituents. Can you provide discussion to this?
(3) There's another way to look at this, and I am curious as to your philosophy: Congress has evolved from a body concerned about local issues to one driven more by national topics - most of the latter since you were probably cognizant of that. So will your campaign focus on local issues (requiring most focus inwardly on the district) or are you satisfied to discuss this seat as more of a national office and campaign relative to national issues?
[As an example - Jay Helvey is talking in his ads about closures of factories and lost jobs in the district]
(4) What are your priorities in running for Congress, and what do you think will actually be accomplished?
(4a) Given that this would indeed be your first political foray, how do you anticipate making that happen (and please, don't give me the 'forge coalitions with like-minded, yet unnamed fellow members of Congress' line -- that's not helpful: who do you know that can prove to us that you've got the connections to really make a difference?)?
(4b) What single issue drives you to stick your neck out and do this?
(5) Please answer the following multi-choice positional questions:
(a) Gun Control: more, less, about the same?
(b) Iraq, War on Terror: support more, roll-back, continue?
(c) Discretionary Spending: where do we need more, less, or continuation of same?
(d) Name some ways to boost the economy that Congress can do
(e) Abortion laws: encourage, reduce, or eliminate?
(f) Dept of Education: eliminate, maintain?
(g) Affirmative Action: encourage, reduce, or eliminate?
(h) Education: more funding, less funding, vouchers?
(i) Education: more federal or more state control?
(j) Taxes on wealthy: more or less?
(k) Taxes on all: flat, more progressive, less progressive?
(l) Bush Tax cuts: encourage, reduce, or eliminate?
(m) Home Schools: encourage, reduce, or eliminate?
(n) Tobacco Trade: encourage, reduce, or eliminate?
(o) Overseas Job Outsourcing/H1B Visas: encourage, reduce, or eliminate?
(p) US in the United Nations: encourage, reduce, or eliminate?
(q) International Law used in the US: encourage, reduce, or eliminate?
(r) Prayer in Schools, God in the Pledge, Ten Commandments, In God We Trust, .... you get the idea: encourage, reduce, or eliminate?
(s) Would you have voted for the Medicare Overall as enacted with Prescription Drug coverages?
(6) What are the reasons for skyrocketing medical costs, and is this a problem?
(7) How should most people be able to fund their retirement and declining years?
(8) How should North Carolina deal with job losses and industrial output losses -- and is this a Congressional role to repair?
(9) Does Revival Soy employ -- at any level of operations -- any non-American citizens? Please elaborate. Oh, I suppose that's pretty good for a start... Cheers, and good luck. [Nate's now #2 on my radar screen, but as I keep saying, it's early yet.]
I guess in short: the offer was made and I've jumped in -- I shouldn't have to work any harder for the answers if the candidate wishes a vote.
I'll check back.
