This week Wictory Wednesday presents Jim Talent for re-election to the United States Senate.
Control of the Senate will come down to three races, Missouri, Tennessee, and Virginia. Jim Talent is fighting the hard fight in Missouri and he's a solid conservative. It's one thing to lose a seat because the sitting Republican has no conservative credentials, defending a solid conservative however is a must.
Immigration is a hot issue with conservatives wondering why no one in the government seems to recognize a problem with an open border. Sure, many people come here to work and do contribute to the economy and their communities, however with an insecure border, even terrorists and criminals can walk in with complete ease. The current system also all but ensures that illegal immigrants are exiled to the fringe of society and left to be abused by human traffickers and malicious employers. The border needs to be shut so we can control who comes in and let in only those who are here for a better life.
Energy independence is another hot issue, and Jim Talent believes there are only a few ways to get that done. Either we need to research alternative fuels (which Talent supports) or drill for oil in land we control like ANWR (which Talent also supports). This race is also overshadowed by the ballot proposition on stem cell research and cloning, which was so disgustingly politicized by Michael J. Fox.
