Adam Putnam has convinced me that elite liberals are, in reality, ultraconservatives in the Republican Party, including him.

From Jeb Bush to the current time, it has been the conservatives who have pushed college over vocational/work-readiness training. As a person who would fit Putnam's name calling and labels, I have always advocated for vocational training while leaving the door open to attend college if the individual so decided.

Mr. Putnam touts his faith, values and beliefs in his ads, but the words and actions say the opposite.
