Which Owens?

TO THE EDITOR: If you are supporting Bill Owens for Congress, which Bill Owens are you supporting? 

Are you supporting the Bill Owens who was running for Congress and said he didn’t know how he was going to vote on Obamacare, or the Bill Owens who voted for Obamacare on his first day in Washington to find out what was in it? 

Are you supporting the Bill Owens who says he supports North Country values or the Bill Owens who continues to vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker of the House?

Are you supporting the Bill Owens who says he wants to help small businesses, or the Bill Owens who voted for card check to take the secret ballot out of union elections and make it impossible for small businesses to properly present their side in an election?

Are you supporting the Bill Owens who falsely claims he created 20,000 jobs with PARC or the Bill Owens who in reality did a little legal paperwork for those who actually created the jobs?

Are you supporting the Bill Owens who says he will protect our individual freedoms, or the Bill Owens who co-sponsored the SOPA bill to allow the government to take away your Internet freedom without any due process of law?

Are you supporting the Bill Owens who had a wonderful vacation paid for by a foreign lobbyist or the Bill Owens who, after he was caught, paid the lobbyist back so it didn’t really happen?

Are you supporting what Bill Owens says or what Bill Owens does?

I could go on and on with this list, but I’m not supporting any of the Bill Owenses listed above. He can’t be trusted.
