Barry Welsh Website Redesign

I was just sent this email by Barry Welsh's campaign and I'd wait til later but I have a night class.  Here goes along with :

Hi! I'm the Kentucky Democrat and I am with the Barry Welsh for Congress Campaign. We are proud to announce that our new website www.barrywelsh.org is making it's World Premier this evening. We ask you to visit the website, and take a look around. Barry will be blogging live, beginning at 7 p.m. on the site.  We invite you to join the conversation. We are also proud of the Pledge to the People of the 6th District.  A media blitz in underway in the district to announce this important document.

Barry's campaign is intent on telling the truth about how our Congressman Mike Pence has voted, where his financing comes from, and his out-of-touch, right-wing extremism.  More importantly it is about ideas that will improve life in Indiana's 6th District. Visit www.barrywelsh.org to see the complete text of Barry's Pledge to the People of the 6th District.

Voter ID is “a Lot to Have to Go Through for a Constitutional Right,” says Indiana Judge

 

 

 

Voter ID is “a Lot to Have to Go Through for a Constitutional Right,” says Indiana Judge

Although the 2008 presidential election showed unprecedented increases in turnout from underrepresented citizens, their rates of voter registration and participation were still well behind the electorate in general. As we approach election season, this pattern may only continue. Instead of taking steps to improve the administration of elections to encourage and facilitate voter participation from eligible citizens, lawmakers and elected officials are back to raising barriers to voting by implementing strict voter ID laws, as illustrated through high profile court battles, ballot initiatives, and fast-moving legislation

An appeal to an Indiana’s court’s decision to shut down the state’s notorious voter ID law as unconstitutional was heard last week in the state Supreme Court.

Big Federal Government is Bad, Big State Government is Good

Indy Star reports

 

This new law has been eerily and accurately titled: "Preemption of local firearm regulation." This unnecessary law, pushed by Republicans but endorsed by many Democrats, tells cities and towns across the state that the General Assembly and the National Rifle Association know what is best for them. It also tells the state's urban centers that they must adhere to the wishes of lawmakers who in most cases don't live in those cities.


The idea is not that a city like Indianapolis doesn't know what's best for itself and the state of Indiana does, it's simply a matter on not inconveniencing gun owners. Let's say there's a guy from Gary Indiana who carries a gun everywhere he goes, you know, just in case. If Indianapolis is allowed to prohibit guns in its parks, that poor guy from Gary would be faced with a terrible dilemma if he had some reason to go to the Indianapolis park. He'd either have have to decline to go, that's bad, or leave his gun in the glove compartment of the car, that's really bad, or LEAVE IT HOME IN THE GUNSAFE WHERE IT BELONGS. Naturally, we can't expect gun owners to have to face such choices so we depend on the State to govern.

Of course, the gun enthusiasts in Indiana, and everywhere else for that matter, have no proplem with Federal laws that support their cause too.
