Leon Wolf, official blogger for the Sam Brownback ’08 campaign, has a brilliant essay up over at The Daily Brownbacker: Speaking Clearly. I recommend you read the whole thing. Here’s the opening paragraph:
Over the past several months that I’ve been working for the Brownback campaign, I’ve run into several conservatives who don’t “get” Senator Brownback’s emphasis on protecting and strengthening families as one of his top priorities. “Surely,” they ask, “Isn’t such a notion a little quaint?” I can only assume from the question that many conservatives have become desensitized to how serious the assault on the family has become. Then an article like this comes along, when a liberal speaks clearly about what they think and believe, and it becomes clear that Senator Brownback isn’t engaging in hyperbole at all – the family really is under direct attack.
Leon goes on to point to some recent films which are being blasted simply because they don’t encourage abortion as the solution to unplanned pregnancies. Re-read that. It’s not a typo.
One of the many issues Sam Brownback cares about deeply is the family. He is also unquestionably “pro-life, whole life.” This country needs a moral revival, and Senator Brownback is the perfect candidate to make this happen. He will use the bully pulpit to remind America about some things it seems to have forgotten. See Mr. Compassionate Conservative for more background about the Senator, for those of you still making up your minds.
Leon the wordsmith has shone a spotlight on an important issue and it reminds us all that families need to be protected and cherished in this most cynical of times. This is clearly something Senator Brownback has never lost sight of. And he never will. You can count on it.
