Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles! I just got off the phone with my 88 year-old father; a died in the wool, life-long democrat who was born in and has lived in Mass for over 70 years. HE HAS NEVER VOTED FOR A REPUBLICAN… NEVER. After polite chit chat about the NFL play off games I dared broach the subject and asked him if he was going to vote on Tuesday (every time “politics” have come up in the past he has berated me with tirades about those “evil republicans”). Well, he came right out and told me… “I AM going to vote on Tuesday and I am seriously thinking of voting for Scott Brown.” Needless to say I was and am totally ASTONISHED… ASTONISHED (I did not let him know in the least and kept my heart-felt joy and enthusiasm at his answer to my self so as to not “scare him off”)!

I tactfully asked him WHY he was going to vote for Brown and his answer was: “Because of the healthcare bill Obama is trying to pass.” I carefully agreed with him and reinforced the fact that Obama wants to gut Medicare/Medicaid by taking away 500 BILLION DOLLARS from the system and that if he adds 40 million people to the rolls, especially illegal aliens the health care system would collapse… I told him that Brown is an honorable man and that he is totally opposed to the “healthcare” bill and would vote against it… MY DAD AGREED! I was flabbergasted!

If my own father; a life-long Massachusetts FDR Democrat who has voted for EVERY Kennedy, Kerry/democrat to ever come down the pike, is going to vote for Scott Brown, a REPUBLICAN, BECAUSE OF HIS OPPOSITION TO Obama and his evil healthcare debacle then things are looking VERY promising for Scott Brown and we could all be in for an incredible victory on Tuesday. To this end I am fervently praying.

One of the things some Democrats have been waking up to is that their perception of the Rat party is different from the reality. They still perceive the Rats as being the party of the blue collar worker.

Loyalty was a big thing to the WWII generation. My dad was a democrat, a mason, a Methodist, an Air Force guy and a Chevy guy.

Many of them are waking up to the fact that the Democrats are now the party of welfare, marxism and radical environmentalism. I'm praying this plays out with a Brown win. Pelosi is in a safe district, so she'll push as hard to the left as possible, but Dems from just about everywhere else will freak out, and Zero will, too. One year in is very early to become a lame duck, but here's hoping it will happen.

I wonder if any of the 18-30 Obama voters have figured out that the way he's planning to pay for health care is to cut services and require younger people who don't use health care to buy it.
