website and I am posting her responses to her critics below. I would rather have someone who has had financial struggles, had to deal with real life issues, had to work hard to get where she's at today, than a person who has been handed pretty much everything on a silver platter. People complain about her having had financial issues. I say, so what? So have many people and that shouldn't disqualify a person from entering public service or from entering politics. We are all human and we have all made mistakes in our past. Mistakes, especially admitting your mistakes, is no reason for a person to be disqualified from serving in the political arena. IMO, that is a breath of fresh of fresh air and I would rather have a person like Christine O'Donnell representing me than the likes of those who are self-serving bureaucrats serving in Congress today.
Here are Christine's counters to the myths:
MYTH: Did not get college diploma
■FACT: Americans are struggling and I understand those struggles, because I’ve also faced difficult times, but in the end, I persevered. It took me over ten years to pay off my tuition bill. As a result my diploma was delayed. As FOX News, the Wilmington News Journal, and numerous other media sources have confirmed, I have a degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University and am a very proud alumna.
MYTH: Not a Delaware resident
■FACT: While some individuals might try to intimidate me to get out of the race, I will never back down from what’s right for Delaware citizens. During my 2008 campaign, both my home and campaign office were vandalized, broken into, and files were stolen. Threatening messages were left and nasty names were scrawled across my front door and porch. For security reasons, I simply do not want my Delaware home address made public this time around.
MYTH: Lost home in foreclosure
■FACT: Over the last few years, the American real estate market crashed and many families were faced with tough decisions. Contrary to what others are saying, I was lucky to survive this economic turmoil and my home was not foreclosed upon. My home was privately sold in 2008 through a realtor and private mortgage company, not a public foreclosure.
Here is verification of the sale:

MYTH: Owes money to the IRS
■FACT: The following is an excellent example of our bloated government and the need for a simplified tax code in America. The IRS says the erroneous tax bill was a “computer error.” During my previous campaign against then Sen. Joe Biden, I was audited by the IRS. After a long appeals process; the issue was supposed to have been wrapped up this past spring. Yet, in March, rather than a letter finalizing the appeals process, I received an erroneous tax lien claiming I had not responded to their previous correspondence. The IRS admitted the letter was a mistake, issued a Certificate of Release of Federal Tax Lien on May 19, 2010 and chalked it up to a “computer error.” The remaining balance was paid in full on May 16, 2010.
Here is the document proving the release of her federal tax lien:

The following document shows that Christine was complying with the IRS during the appeals process. This proves that the lien was erroneous and a “computer error” since you can’t get a tax lien placed on your home while under the appeals process (especially one you sold 2 years ago).

Now, here is Christine O'Donnell on the issues:
She is believes jobs are created when freed from both excessive taxation
and bureaucratic red tape.
She believes terrorism is an act of war and that terrorists should not enjoy the privilege of constitutional rights which are in fact rights granted to American citizens.
She is against the excessive taxation of the American people and is pushing for a simplification of the tax code.
She is pro-life and believes in protecting the sanctity of life at all stages.
Christine supports a market-based approach to energy solutions that will keep competition high and energy prices low.
Christine believes our country was founded on core values of faith, family and freedom and will fight to defend those values. Will always fight for maximum choice for parents about where to educate their kids, including private, parochial and charter schools or in the home.
She believes unrestrained government spending is eroding our freedom, destroying our economy and ceding our sovereignty to foreign debt- holders like China.
Christine believes in accountability. She denounces corrupt pork-barrel politics, including earmarks, and will fight for increased transparency and performance information for every Federal program.
She believes that the solution to the healthcare crisis is less government meddling in the doctor/patient relationship, more competition in the insurance market and more choice for families about their health plan.
Christine is a strong supporter of 2nd Amendment rights, and this has earned her an “A” rating from the NRA.
Regardless whether some of us have some reservations or not about Christine O'Donnell as a candidate we need to put things into perspective and remember what our priority is this election cycle, to defeat the Obama agenda. I had some reservations about Scott Brown but I supported him because I knew he would be better than the other candidate who was tied at the hip with Obama and his policies. WE must all step up to the plate and work together to defeat Obama and the Obama agenda. Every freedom loving conservative should be standing in line to support Christine O'Donnell so that we can stop and eventually reverse Obamacare, whereas her opponent Chris Coons supports Obamacare, the Obama agenda, and is a Marxist who supports excessive taxation and spreading the wealth.
Christine O'Donnell is the right candidate at the right time. Let's all support her so she can win against the Coons, the candidate in Delaware who is out of touch with the American people, supports high taxes which will lead to higher unemployment, wants to rob from the job creators and stifle their means to create employment to those who need jobs, and he wants to continue keeping the underprivileged reliant on the government.
PLEASE SUPPORT CHRISTINE O'DONNELL FOR U.S. SENATE IN DELAWARE ALONG WITH OTHER FREEDOM LOVING CANDIDATES AND TOGETHER WE CAN STOP THE OBAMA REGIME!!!
