This campaigning won't be tolerated

Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry's comments directed toward Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke are volatile, extremely harmful and lack total civility. I don't believe Perry represents all the people of Texas when he says Bernanke might be harmed if he comes to Texas. Where is this conservative Christian morality that Perry claims to possess?

As a Christian you learn to love one another and treat others with respect as you would expect. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you is what I learned growing up as a Christian.

He may as well have said that we should put the chairman in the cross-hairs, as his other conservative compatriot said. This needs to stop. I have absolutely no tolerance for people who can't speak with authority about what they can do versus building a pedestal for themselves by standing on someone else's head.

I ask all concerned citizens to contact your congressman to tell them this type of lioness campaigning will not be tolerated and needs to cease. Let's nip this its early stage to get candidates to speak with civility about what they know and quit criticizing others. You won't get my vote by doing this.
