Daily Times Grapevine Comment on Dr. Davis

Look before you vote
Seen in Grapevine: "We elect people to office to run our nation responsibly. More often than not, they yield to the wishes of big money and special interests. Democrats are no better than Republicans. Why do we keep returning them to office?" Right -- and that's exactly why I noticed the letters to the editor from Richard Davis in The Daily Times. Now I know to look for more information about him before I decide how to vote.

****On Behalf of Dr. Davis thank you for your comment. The point is that the outrageous amount of money (Over $4 Million) that will be spent on a congressional seat that pays about $175,000 a year is ridiculous. Money will pour in from all sides and every special interest group imaginable as the First District's Seat will be one of the most hotly contested in the country.

In light of the recent happenings in Massachusetts and the voters trying to send a message, not much will change. Obama will still try to push his agenda through, Congress will still spend trillions of dollars that does not exist while getting nothing done. Electing a Libertarian such as Dr. Davis will send a real message to Washington the rest of the Country that the two party duopoly must end and real workable ideas need to be enacted.

Dr. Richard Davis January Letter to Editor

Here we go into another election year. I hope to make this one a little different. I believe that continuing the campaign process as it has been will continue to bring the results it has been providing. Therefore:

  1. I will take no campaign contributions; buy no yard signs, bumper stickers or ads. The 4+ million dollars the other parties put into the last campaign would have served any number of better uses on the Shore. Keep your money here.
  2. I will have little or nothing to say about my opponents as individuals. I have little doubt they are fine, honorable people. Their parties, however, have spent us into near (if not complete) bankruptcy. They have, for seventy five years, expanded the size, scope, and power of the federal government at the expense of the individual citizens. They have repeatedly and almost systematically subverted the limits placed on the federal government by the Constitution. They have maintained American troops in foreign countries long beyond any reasonable need or justification, waging at least seven wars of varying length without any Congressional declaration of war.
  3. I will do my best to communicate with the voters through these letters, which will also be on my website ( and will welcome any opportunities to address any groups who contact me. (I prefer to answer questions on issues of concern to such groups, rather than wasting your time with broad speeches that may pass by your individual concerns.)

Please contact me!


Richard J. Davis D.D.S.
Libertarian for Congress, First District
