Ads: Classic Example Of Democrat Scare Tactics

by Joyce Cook, Letter to Editor: I was getting ready for work, I saw a TV ad for Sen. Mark Pryor that suggested Congressman Tom Cotton did not want to protect women from domestic violence. Cotton's votes and actions prove otherwise.

Cotton has voted for numerous bills that protect women from violence including the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, the Stop Exploitation Through Trafficking Act, and the Stop Advertising Victims of Exploitation (SAVE) Act. Cotton did not vote for the specific bill that the ad addressed because he felt that the law was too broad and that it would have cost $660 million, with most of that money going to liberal organizations that would enable them to carry out their far-left agenda.

It is laughable to hear Cotton attacked with false claims that he voted against funding for Arkansas Children's Hospital. Cotton actually supported the Children's Hospital Graduate Medical Education Program. He also voted for the Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act, which terminated funding for political party conventions and redirected the funds towards pediatric medical research.

Does anyone with a functioning brain really think that Cotton would be against helping women and children? This is a classic example of Democratic scare tactics. It is right out of their playbook they have been using for 140 years.

Every election the Democrats ramp up the fear-mongering. Usually they try to convince old folks that the mean old Republicans are going to take their Social Security checks away from them. This is beyond ridiculous. If people would stop and analyze such nonsense, they would see that it's not based on facts.

In one ad, Pryor uses a Bible as a prop even though the Democratic Party booed God three times at their last convention and attempted to take Him out of their platform. I wonder if Pryor ever confronted party leaders about that? If a Republican had used the Bible in an ad, he would have been labeled as extreme, and we would hear screams of "separation of church and state." Someone should clue Pryor into the fact that the Democratic Party stands for abortion, gay marriage and for rewarding law breakers (amnesty for illegals), none of which are viewed favorably in the Bible.
