2003, while Sean was serving as a District Attorney in

Dan Mielke is strongly
Pro Life and believes it is the responsibility of Congress
to protect the life of every person, including the unborn.
To say, "it won't be an issue addressed
by Congress," is sidestepping one's responsibility.
Dan Mielke also
believes that states do NOT have the right to vote to kill
the disabled, the elderly or any other group of people. Dan
says, "We live in a republic. A republic
does not allow the majority to take away the rights and
freedoms from the minority. The
right to life is guaranteed to every person by the
Dan Mielke believes
that the courts should not legislate from the bench on
or any other issue. "When the courts legislate from the
bench, it is the obligation of Congress to
use their legislative powers to bring clarity to the law, so
that its original intent is carried out."
According to the first video, Sean Duffy
believes in civil unions for homosexual couples.
Dan will defend the
rights and freedoms of every person, but,
he does not support special treatment for homosexuals based
sexual preferences. He is opposed to civil unions.
Dan says, "Sean's
support for civil unions sets precedents that would carry
down a very dangerous road. What would be the next step in
this process? What
about polygamy, bigamy, sadism, pedophiles, man boy, etc?
Where would this end?"
Mr. Duffy and I seem to have
differences in what we see as right and wrong.
concerned about the moral decay happening in our nation.
Sean and his wife both stated recently that they have no
regrets about their MTV Real World past. I find his lack
of remorse regarding his time on this TV show. (The MTV Real
World Series is known for its promotion of a lifestyle that
goes directly against sound moral guidelines.) I believe
that these types of shows have been responsible for a lot of
the problems our young people are facing today. As young
people these natural cravings and drives become a dangerous
struggle. Premarital sex, sexual abuse, abortion, single
mothers, & alcoholism, are what happens when we leave our
carnal desires unchecked. When this happens all of society
has to pay the price. I believe pornography, the wild
party life, free open sex, the promotion of alternative
lifestyles, should not be condoned or promoted. I
understand that these are natural desires, but they are
desires to be resisted, not embraced and promoted. I am
grateful that those I looked up to had a strong
understanding of right and wrong. I shudder to think what
might have happened to me had I been left with the idea that
it is ok to indulge in these carnal urges. Cub scouts, Boy
scouts, 4H, were all there to help guide us through those
tough times. To this day I still remember the strong draw
that Pornography had on us young men when we were going
thorough Puberty. Due to proper guidance most of us
were helped through these tough times. But some did not do
so well and they are still paying the price today. As a
minister I have had to deal with many where these struggles
turned into addictions that torment their lives to this
day. My personal struggles with pornography as a young man
have helped me help others. As young people we were given
the tools necessary to deal with and resist these
temptations; tools that we still use today.
teaches us that the best way to stop abortion is to resist
doing that which leads to unwanted pregnancies. The best
way to stop sexual crimes is to not travel down the path
that leads to sexual abuse. The best way to avoid drunk
driving is to educate our young people that heavy drinking
and the party life are not acceptable norms.
Duffy's apparent lack of regret for his wild and free
spirited actions on MTV REAL WORLD shows that he doesn't see
things from the same perspective that I see them.
Sean Duffy's campaign focuses on
gaining support of the leadership in the party
to move his campaign ahead.
Dan Mielke is opposed
to such efforts. Dan believes that the leadership should
remain neutral prior to the primary, so as to let the voters
decide which candidate they want. Dan says "I am strongly
opposed to insider control. It is too easy for special
interest groups to control who is on the ballot when that
choice is left up to a select few within the party. Money
and power corrupts. The best way to avoid this is to leave
candidate selection up to the voters."
Dan also says, "One of
the major problems in Congress is that Congressmen tend to
give more attention to power players and lobbyists than they
do to the people back home. This is why I refuse to go down
such a path in the election process. I want to serve the
voters, not people of influence and power."
Sean Duffy supports the idea of an
early endorsement prior to the primary.
Dan Mielke is opposed
to an early endorsement from the party, when two or
more candidates are running as Republicans. Dan will seek
from the leadership after the people have made their choice
in the partisan primary.
"I feel an early endorsement to promote one Republican
candidate over another,
prior to the primary, is discriminatory and detrimental to
the political process.
The primary was put in place to ensure that the voters are
the one to choose
Sean Duffy is an
Attorney, his father is an attorney, his grandfather was an
attorney and a judge, his brother is an attorney who ran for
a political office as well but lost. Sean's uncle was a
judge and an attorney as well.
Dan believes that
attorneys serve a valuable and necessary part of our
society. But Dan
also realizes that 43% of congress is already made up of
attorneys. "There is a danger in
having too many attorneys in Washington. Sean was raised to
think and reason like an
attorney. To insure a fair and impartial balance of
thinking in the legislature we need
representations from all walks of life . Presently we are
seeing the danger in too many
attorneys in Washington. The bills being voted on are
confusing and legalistic in nature,
often leaving way too many legal loopholes and hidden
agendas which come out after the
bill has passed. Bills need to be simple and clean without
so much legalese in them. This is
why our founding fathers were concerned about the harmful
influence lawyers could have
if they became too powerful in congress."
Dan Mielke supports a sustainable and autonomous
nation. Dan opposes the views that come out of
Wilsonianism. Dan believes strongly that the
Constitution should not be done away with and that our
nation should remain sovereign. Dan is not in
favor of a globalization of government. Dan does
not believe we should be the police of the world as is
promoted by Wilsonianism and internationalism.
