Two Black Conservative Women Running For Congress…

By: Nelson Abdullah  -  Conscience of a Conservative

They must be having conniptions over at the NAACP and at the DNC. Who would have ever thought that a Black woman would run for Congress as a Republican. Not just any Black woman but a conservative Black woman. Not just one conservative Black woman but two! And one was a former Miss America who has a Harvard Law School education. And the other is the elected mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah. Holy smoke, what is happening to politics in this country today – the stereotypes (created by the liberal Democratic Party and the liberal news media) of the White, Racist, Republican are about to disappear forever unless the liberal mainstream news media starts working overtime. God Bless America, if this doesn’t begin to turn some heads, nothing will.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ludmya “Mia” Bourdeau Love (born December 6, 1975) is an American politician. She is currently the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and was the 2012 Republican Party nominee for the United States House of Representatives in Utah’s 4th congressional district. She ran on a fiscally conservative platform of limited government, and placed a heavy emphasis on personal responsibility during her campaign. She lost to six-term incumbent Jim Matheson by 768 votes out of 245,277 votes cast. She was also a speaker at the 2012 Republican National Convention.

Biography of Mia Love from her web site.

Mia graduated from the University of Hartford with a degree in fine arts. She found faith. Then she found Jason. And then she found herself in Utah ready to give back. Mia served two terms on the city council of Saratoga Springs, one of Utah’s fastest growing cities. As City Councilwoman and eventually Mayor, Mia led the city through a period of 1700% population growth in a decade. Under her leadership, the city was able to successfully navigate the drastic transition from agricultural fields to a booming residential community. When the citizen growth necessitated fire and police services, Mia fought to make sure the city’s first ever residential tax implementation would only pay for those essential services, and she structured it in such a way that the tax decreased as a percentage of property value.

Mayor Love is best known for her conservative positions on limited government, increased citizen liberties and limited restraints on business. She believes the best thing she can do as mayor is stay out of the way of business and out of the lives of citizens. She advocates a return to the personal responsibility and reduced government dependency engendered by her father.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

  1. Why do Whites, who are driven from representation on cries of “racism” need blacks to speak for them? Should we not speak for ourselves?

    • Just happened to notice this web site honored my by reposting my blog entry about these two conservative candidates. So let me answer your question. Most White people, notably conservative Republicans, have been unjustly made overly sensitive to accusations about racism. Since these accusations almost always come from the leftist media they are almost always not based on facts. As a conservative Republican I welcome any person of good character that agrees with what I stand for to speak in my place, regardless of their gender or religion or skin color. I posted the stories of these two Black women to prove my point. I wish both of them success in their campaigns.
