Endorsement: Ray Moore for South Carolina Lieutenant Governor

Ray Moore & Jim DeMint

On June 10 voters in South Carolina have a real conservative choice for Lieutenant Governor; our old friend E. Ray Moore.

Ray Moore is a South Carolina native, he is a graduate of The Citadel with a B.A. in political science and was graduated from Grace Theological Seminary cum laude with a M.Div. (Master of Divinity) in 1974 and with a Th.M. (Master of Theology) in 1979. He served nineteen years as an Army Reserve Chaplain, retiring as Lt. Colonel in 1999. He was awarded the Bronze Star for service in Gulf War I.

A few weeks ago, Ray was interviewed by WorldNetDaily on the conflict between school choice and government-sponsored education. The interview focused on the critical issues of the school-choice debate:

1. The family and church should be the providers of education for Christian children.

2. The public school system cannot be fixed. It’s a socialistic model and should be abandoned.

3. Anti-Christian trends are real, ever-present, and proliferated by the public school system.

As Ray noted, in South Carolina, it costs $11,500 to educate child in public schools. If the system operated on the free market, if it were all private, just based on the cost of private education, we could do it at half the cost. We would take charge of our children’s education, and in doing that, we would take charge of the country and our culture. This would be a reformation or a revolution.

“It’s incredible,” Moore said of the cultural shift. “We’re losing the culture right in our homes and in our churches, and it’s because of government education.”

Ray Moore is the only candidate in the race for Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina who understands the relationship between big government, big spending, our failed public education system and the decline of our culture – and is willing to fight to turn it around.

In a field crowded with Chamber of Commerce-type Republicans Ray Moore stands out as THE limited government constitutional conservative in the race. If you are among the many CHQ readers in the Palmetto State we urge you to vote E. Ray Moore for the Republican nomination for Lt. Governor in the June 10 South Carolina Republican primary election.
