Congressman Castle, Bad on Defense, Bad for Delaware
The most important duty of government is to protect the people. Not to Mike Castle. Since 2007 Congressman Castle has voted against funding the United States Missile Defense Shield that would protect America and her allies from Iranian and North Korean Nuclear missiles. When the opportunity came to Congressman Castle to speed up construction on the border fence to keep terrorists and illegal immigrants from streaming across the border, Congressman Castle voted no. He voted against the troop surge in Iraq that is credited with forcing Al Qaeda out of the country and bringing that theater to a near ending. Worst of all, Congressman Castle voted with the Democrats to start an investigation that would have led to an impeachment hearing against President George W. Bush.
With his record on defense in the last 5 years how can we feel safe with him as our next Senator from Delaware? Issues can be passed or bad bills blocked with just a single vote, can we afford to give one of ours away to a Progressive RINO? Congressman Mike Castle has been in elected office for 40 years. It's time for a change in Delaware. It's time to Repeal Castle.
