American Dream or Government Dependence?

During this time of economic distress in our state and nation, when we should be united and working together to get people back to work, we have never been more divided. But worse than that, are the ongoing threats to the American way of life by a socialist, political agenda that is all about creating power and dependence on bigger government, not the well-being of New Mexicans.

Some elected officials, like members of the Las Cruces City Council who voted to raise taxes, don’t understand that VOTERS are the boss. We encourage Las Cruces residents to VOTE and remember what a local resident said, “Elections have consequences and it’s time to elect councilors who will protect our assets rather than consume them.”

Albuquerque VOTERS also have an important choice to make: In the coming weeks, the New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) will provide information about the options between the candidates in the Albuquerque City Council run-off election.

Why do people who want to raid the Permanent Fund dislike children so much?
