Letter to the editor: More to Bachmann than meets the eye

Michele Bachmann is a woman of great intelligence, character and perseverance, as she has shown throughout this presidential race. She is more than meets the eye, and embraces the Midwest spirit that all candidates should get a taste of. Bachmann has kept her morals and ethics consistent during this process, which is something that quite obviously most candidates can’t say at this point.

In my opinion, Bachmann has the best assets to pull America through this low point. What she puts most of her emphasis on is reducing taxes and reforming the health care system. Bachmann wants to return to a more simple way of government where Congress is much less invasive of citizen’s private lives. This goes hand-in-hand with the fact that she wants to leave the market as it is, and in turn the economy will work itself out.

“We’re in a state of crisis where our nation is literally ripping apart at the seams right now, and lawlessness is occurring from one ocean to the other. And we’re seeing the fulfillment of the Book of Judges here in our own time, where every man doing that which is right in his own eyes — in other words, anarchy,” congresswoman Bachmann stated in a radio program in 2007.

This quote helps to embrace what she truly thinks this country has come to, and I think her religious background is a breath of fresh air through the campaign. Bachmann is not afraid to speak what is on her mind but does it in a respectful, honorable manner.

I find her charisma is the most intriguing thing about her, and that she genuinely cares about the well-being of everyone. It is rare to find a candidate that wants small businesses and middle class families to come out on top, but that is what she is ultimately fighting for. Bachmann wants there to be a country with Republican values or notions, instead of what we are currently experiencing.
