We think it is important to clarify where we stand on the major political issues affecting the 2012 election and we hope that our opinions will encourage others to formulate their own based upon their beliefs and the facts they research. We do not endorse a particular candidate and believe that, above all, what is most important is to vote – make your voice be heard. Should we be selected for candidacy – running on the Lab-a-Tarian party ticket, the below is a statement of our beliefs for the record.
We believe that with proper allocation of resources everyone will have enough to meet their needs.
We believe that everyone who wants a job and needs a job should have a job.
Diplomacy should always be the first step before resorting to military aggression.
Only when it is absolutely necessary should we enter into another country’s conflict. But if we have to, we should be prepared with the best military possible.
National Debt and the Deficit
We should never bite off more than we can chew.
Many of our health issues can be taken care of with good nutrition, exercise and rest. But when anyone gets sick, they have a right to excellent care. And snuggles. Snuggles will cure most things.
A quality education is critical for success. Everyone should get one.
We are open and welcoming to all who contribute to our well-being.
Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action
Everyone has an equal voice that should be heard.
We believe in encouraging conservation of our natural resources.
Everyone should put in their fair share and carry their own weight.
We believe in a woman’s right to choose (between a black lab and a yellow lab)
We believe in the right of everyone to pursue their own happiness
Marriage & Family
We believe that families are made up of all different shapes and sizes and colors and numbers and genders and that what matters most is love.
But what matters most of all is that your voice be heard so don’t forget to raise your paw and VOTE!
