I understand, but I think we’ll do just fine with Ron Ramsey.

For whatever reason folks around here continue to support Zach Wamp, even though there is absolutely nothing in his resume that remotely qualifies him to be Governor. I haven't seen much if any Ramsey signs or stickers around at all. Bill Haslam seems to be spending a lot of money in this area, but it's come out that he supported Al Gore and Jim Cooper in previous elections. Anyone that would support a moonbat like Gore, whatever the reason, gets immediate disqualification for holding public office in my book.....

Wamp is a definite NO.

“In July 2005, Wamp voted for a $286 billion infrastructure bill that included 6,376 pork projects, including $223 million for an Alaskan bridge that came to be known as the Bridge to Nowhere. [Lawmakers packed $24 billion in special projects into the transportation bill,] including $5.9 million for a Vermont snowmobile trail and $3 million for a documentary about Alaska infrastructure. The package is worth $286.5 billion over six years, a 30 percent increase over the $218 billion program that expired in 2003. Taxpayers for Common Sense found Rep. Young helped to secure $231 million for a bridge in Anchorage to be named Don Young’s Way; $223 million for a bridge to Ketchikan; and $15 million for a Juneau access road, dubbed the Black Ice Highway by group analyst Erich Zimmermann because “that’s all you’ll see in the winter if this project is built.” The group found 6,376 special projects in the 1,752-page bill. (The Washington Post, July 30, 2005; HR 3, July 29, 2005, Roll Call Vote 453, Overall vote: 412-8, Wamp vote: Yes) “

Note his vote for the Bridge to Nowhere!
Maybe you can use some of this information. ;-)

It is my fondest hope that black conservatives can be liberated from the cultural closet in which they have been forced to hide.

Cain and candidate Tim Scott, both came out with great messages...as did the unsinkable Sarah Palin.

Hubby has been chatting with colleagues over the past couple of months. One or two women have ‘confessed’ to grave reservations about the Obama agenda...but they have openly stated that while they can say so in front of my hubby, who is white, they do not dare to do so in their ‘community’.

Hopefully, over the top actions by the NBPP and NAALCP will encourage good people to finally cast aside the intellectual and cultural shackles with which they have been bound purely due to the color of their skin.
