Gomez for United States
We support Gabriel Gomez for United States Senate. Gabriel
Gomez is the Republican candidate running for the United States Senate winning
a three way primary election besting Michael Sullivan and Dan Winslow. Any of
these three candidates would have been an excellent choice to run in the general
election and we were lucky to have such a strong group vying for the
I have the highest respect for Michael Sullivan and Dan
Winslow, and having spent some time with Gabriel Gomez I can tell you he is an
outstanding person who will run a great campaign and he can win this election.
His resume is filled with real accomplishments, and that alone would make him a
formidable candidate, but he is a decent and honest person as well, and it
comes through when you meet him. A first
generation immigrant who didn’t learn English until entering Kindergarten,
Gabriel went on to attend the Naval
Academy and become a
pilot landing planes on aircraft carriers. He then became a Navy Seal and later
attended Harvard after leaving the military. Following a successful business
career he has decided to enter politics because like many people he believes
the system in Washington
is broken and unresponsive to the real needs of people.
Gabriel lives in Cohasset with his wife Sarah and their four
children. He is active in the community coaching baseball and softball and has
served as a volunteer on a number of town committees. He is President of the
Navy Seal Foundation of New England.
I believe Gabriel Gomez has his priorities straight and that
is critical because while other issues are important the most glaring problem
facing Americans is the lack of opportunity that is a result of the bad economy.
We keep reading that things are getting better but we never meet anyone who
actually says their lives are better. People are worried and they fear things
will only get worse once Obama Care takes full effect. And they are right to
worry because as we are finally hearing even Democrats believe the bill is flawed, perhaps fatally, and will cause great
harm not only to those seeking health care but to the economy as well.
We need to gain control of the debate and set the agenda
instead of constantly reacting to the Democrats and the media who have done a
great job deflecting our attention away from the terrible economy and on to
issues that divide the American people. We have millions of people who have
given up on ever getting a job and millions still seeking work, and when you
add them up unemployment approaches 14%! Yet there is no news about it no
stories on television about poor and homeless people and nothing of the despair
caused by the reckless policies of Washington
that have caused this mess.
In fact, it seems about the only time you read anything
related to business the story is about government making new laws to control
businesses because they are evil. We have had an inexplicable incessant attack
on Capitalism for many years now and we are seeing the results in a weak
economy and an inexcusably high unemployment rate. People have lost confidence
and rightly so, but you would never know it has anything to do with the bad
economy their policies have caused. The Democrats must have an enemy and they
have chosen Capitalism and achievers and they won’t stop their attacks because
it is all they have. And because the economy is terrible their message
resonates as they look to blame anyone other than the people in Washington who have
actually caused the mortgage crisis that crippled the economy. When a company
makes a mistake it hurts some people and that is sad, but when a government
causes a catastrophe like they did with the mortgage crisis it hurts millions
worldwide. Is there a better reason to limit their power over us?
We need Gabriel Gomez in Washington because he understands what it
will take to get the economy moving and a healthy economy is the best argument
we can make as Republicans to put an end to the class warfare argument put
forth by Democrats and the media. We are told the lie that this is the “new
normal.” We must accept higher unemployment and a poor economy not to mention
huge spikes in the cost of food, heating oil and gasoline and for what? Is it
so we can finance even larger government? I don’t believe saying something as
silly as “this is the new normal” excuses the people in Washington from making things right, but
they do. I never thought we would ever reach the point as Americans when we
would turn a blind eye to the suffering caused by the politicians in Washington, but it seems
that we have, and that is astounding. It is like we have accepted it as
something inevitable and we can’t do anything about it because it is all too
complicated so let people live without hope because well, “it is the new
I trust Gabriel Gomez to help get us back to the old normal
where people had jobs and opportunity and the dollar was strong so food prices
and fuel were much cheaper. He understands that for government to keep spending
money we don’t have on programs that don’t work is not sustainable and growing
the government does not grow the economy. Creating the conditions that
encourage business growth will help a great deal and Gabriel Gomez knows how to
get that done.
Please support Gabriel Gomez for United States Senate
because he will work to help solve our most important problem — improving the
economy. An expanding economy will grow jobs and opportunity and restore
confidence. He believes in private enterprise and understands how important it
is to create jobs. We cannot accept the “new normal.” Support Gabriel Gomez.
