On May 19, Kentucky will get to decide which Republican and which Democrat will face off in the general election for Governor of the commonwealth. Four Republicans are on the ballot while two Democrats are on the ballot. The current incumbent, who is a Democrat, has been in office since 2008, which was the last time the state of Kentucky had a Republican Governor.
Let’s face it: Republican governors now a days aren’t all that successful and are seemingly easily corrupt (see Scott Walker and Chris Christie). They are backed by the political elite and, like most politicians today, vote based on the companies, lobbyists, or PACs contributing to their campaigns rather than out of principal and constituent interest.
Matt Bevin has made mistakes in the past and I’m sure if you want to go ahead and get a list of his tarnished “liberal record” you can go to his opponents website or Mitch McConnell’s campaign site from last years Senate primary.
The truth is that Matt is a genuine guy who has successfully embraced the American Dream. He has a record of success outside of politics in one of the most important sectors: the financial sector. He makes money because he knows the market he is targeting and has the experience and knowledge to drive business and sales.
On top of his financial and business experiences and success, Matt chose a path of leadership and courage. He served honorably in the United States Army and rose to the rank of a captain. If Matt is lucky enough to read this article, and to all our veterans and servicemembers: thank you for your service and sacrifice in protecting Liberty and Justice for all.
Matt is the type of politician that America needs in every corner of America: one understanding of the mistakes he has made, one with the success and leadership necessary to represent millions of people, and one humble enough to acknowledge the principle of Liberty isn’t bestowed upon the people by the government.
Kentucky might not have the best voting record when it comes to Liberty, but if you want to give more chances to the establishment party systems who are responsible for the Mitch McConnell’s, the John McCains, the Chris Christie’s, the Scott Walkers; the Elizabeth Warrens, the Harry Reid’s, the Hillary Clinton’s, then a vote for one of Matt’s five other opponents is more suitable for you.
If you want to challenge that establishment system by having a representative of your state in Frankfort standing up for Liberty, then tell everyone you know in Kentucky and around the country about Matt Bevin. The more people read about this man, the better chance he has.
I don’t live in Kentucky and despite my differences in opinion on some issues, I would be honored to have someone as experienced and humble as Matt Bevin receive my vote for office.
