McLeod vs. Clyburn

Jim Clyburn was elected in 1992 after racial gerrymandering made the district 65% black. I started running against him in 1994 because of his support of Clinton's homosexuals in the military, attempted take-over of Health Care, the largest tax increase in history, and anything else that Clinton wanted.

I recognized Clinton's promotion of socialism and humanism and I believed him to be the most dangerous President to the Republic since F.D.R. I said then that I thought Clinton was a pot-smoking, draft-dodging, womanizing, con-artist. Today, I hold a much lower opinion of him. However, I am not as surprised from his actions as I am from those who, like my opponent, continue to support him.

Allen Keyes (one of my heroes) has said that people support Clinton not in spite of his weaknesses but because of them. They want his behavior to be accepted so that "We The People" can more easily be convinced that government needs to take a greater role in our lives because The People, like Clinton, lack the character to care for themselves.

I ran against Clyburn in 94, 96, and 98, and have not yet raised enough money to expose his voting record (less than $65,000 total). I am convinced that he will loose here in the Bible Belt if his anti-Christian voting record is exposed.

Unlike the Republican elite who refuse to support me because I am not black, I do not believe that a black republican has a better chance of beating a black democrat. I demonstrated that Clyburn could be beaten by winning a straw poll conducted at Stall High School which is more than 65% black. I believe it is a problem of party not color. I was told by several of the students there that my win was the result of my explanation of some Constitutional issues and my opposition to partial-birth-abortion.

Clyburn and I have debated several times. The only thing that we agree on is the fact that we are in total disagreement on every single issue. Keep this in mind as you look at his voting record below.
