In 2012, Florida is a battleground state that the GOP needs to win to take control of the Senate. There are already twelve GOP candidates running against Democrat incumbent Bill Nelson for this US Senate seat, and there may be more. I like Marielena Stuart, the one who has not held public office, over all the other career politicians. The meme that someone who has not been elected to a public office can’t get elected to the US Senate is not true anymore. In the 2010 elections, the Wisconsin voters elected Ron Johnson instead of Democrat incumbent Russ Feingold, and in the Utah primary they nominated Mike Lee instead of Republican incumbent Bob Bennett. These examples clearly go against the traditional view held by the establishment Republicans, and that is a good thing for us conservatives. In 2006 the Florida GOP picked the high profile candidate Kathryn Harris and lost. In 2010 Florida GOP chose Marco Rubio over the high profile candidate Charlie Crist and won.

Marielena Stuart is the most conservative candidate running in the 2012 US Senate contest in Florida. Stuart pointed to her fight against Jackson Lab, a company that has backed medical eugenics and is looking to establish a facility in Collier County, as well as her record as a home-schooling mother as proof of her “solid, uncompromising” conservative beliefs.
Born in Cuba, her family fled from Fidel Castro’s communist regime in the late 1960s after standing against that tyrannical government. Stuart, whose writings have regularly appeared on conservative website RenewAmerica, currently lives in Ave Maria, Florida.
In my humble opinion, Marielena Stuart would be an excellent teammate to Marco Rubio in representing Florida in the US Senate. I report and you decide.

Marielena Stuart’s statement:
I love America. My adopted country opened its doors to me and my family so that we could walk into the greatness of its freedom and its founding values. Every time I look at our beautiful flag and place my hand over my heart for the Pledge of Allegiance and sing our National Anthem, I am reminded of our nation’s promise to all her citizens — as the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Yet freedom is never really free, is it? It always comes at a great price. Does not each successive generation of Americans have to pay the price for due diligence in order to secure these treasures for ourselves and our posterity? Is it not time that every American ask– what will our legacy be to the next generation? I have asked myself this question and frankly, I don’t like what I see happening to our beloved country. My candidacy is in part a response to the great challenge before us.
America stands at the raw edge of a great precipice. We see an ever expanding impersonal government that spends money it does not have, and passes laws that are blind to the Law-Giver. It is devouring all that is good and honorable.
As your Senator, I pledge to do my utmost to take any and all actions directed at curbing this nation’s current fiscal crisis. I will strive to articulate the economic needs of Floridians within the framework of a smaller government that supports private sector growth, job creation and lower taxes.
Florida is a state blessed by God in so many ways. Not just for its beauty and natural resources, but more importantly, for its wonderful people– many of whom have come to America, like my family did, in search of freedom from tyranny and want. In search of a dream for themselves and their families. They deserve representatives who will defend their constitutional rights.
All Floridians should be able to follow their dreams – without the threat of a bloated federal government that taxes them excessively while taking away their sacred rights, including the right to life, which is granted to them by God — and secured by our Constitution.
The family, which is the building block and foundation for a civilized society – is under attack. The family existed from man’s beginning– before the creation of the State and the Church. We need to support legislation that is pro-family– and vigorously oppose legislation that endangers the family.
Abraham Lincoln was inspired by the Founding Fathers who preceded him, as he fought for unity and strength. The danger that Lincoln faced then is once again before us. We are becoming a fractured nation. In this present crisis we must pull together – or we will fall apart.
We need leaders in Washington who will have the strength of character and the will to succeed in rebuilding our nation – not just economically, but morally as well. This is why I am presenting my candidacy for the United States Senate.
I pledge to listen to Floridians, and to represent, uphold and lead in everything that is good, everything that is noble – and everything that supports and protects life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in this Great State of Florida– and in this greatest of nations.
