    I went to vote today. extra voting booths, few people (8:00 AM). My district is tiny and rural. The nearest village has 2,200 people. When I left, I noticed a large white SUV marked "Homeland Security" "Federal Protective Services" with G18 plates. This location is about as unlikely a one as I could imagine for any kind of mischief. Even if someone phoned in a threat, isn't a G18 pretty high ranking to send over to a tiny rural firehouse with few people?
  • Illinois Hardball Politics: "Democrats Are Prepared to Steal This Election"

    The battle over President Obama’s old senate seat in Illinois is excruciatingly close.  Republican Mark Kirk leads Democrat Alexi Giannoulias by a very small margin in most polls and is narrowly favored to win.  But a number of Illinois GOP operatives I spoke with today expressed concerns about an eleventh-hour development in the race: A $1 million cash infusion from the DNC into the state late on Saturday, coinciding with the President’s Hyde Park Rally.  Politico’s Ben Smith reports: With Illinois shaping up as perhaps the tightest Senate race in the country — and one where the Democratic candidate and his...
  • More Poll Watcher Intimidation In Harris County

    Apparently, as Democrats ready for the coming backlash, their strategy of targeting their opponents and intimidating with unjustified allegations also continues. Poll watchers, those who have volunteered to observe the voting process to insure that fraud is not allowed to corrupt a fair outcome, are now being threatened with lawsuits. King Street Patriots, a poll watching group, has been sued by the Texas Democratic Party. Based upon an ethics complaint filed by Texans For Justice, who are linked with funding from billionaire leftist, George Soros through his organization, Open Society Institute, the writing is on the wall. Once again leftist...

    The expected Republican upset at the voting booth today is bound to leave many inside the Beltway confused. What on earth do the American people want? After all, just two years ago they threw out the Republicans, and now they are throwing out the Democrats. What Americans want is a government that stays out of their pocketbooks and out of their private lives. Under Presidents Bush and Obama, we've gotten just the opposite: government program after government program created with our money to socially engineer the economy. Evidence of voters’ desires lies in the huge swing we are seeing in...

    This is the high-impact political ad, of 2010. Video, October 20, 2010, "Chinese Professor," by Citizens Against Government Waste Political pollster, Frank Luntz showed this to his focus group and it drew the highest marks of all, the highest this observer has ever seen. Republicans in his audience took the famous Luntz dial pads and scored it 95 percent favorable -- and Democrats reached the 70's -- Democrats. That is because it goes to the heart of what is disturbing American Citizens about Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid (George Soros, Maurice Strong) and the mega-subterfuge of the overall...

    Excerpt from middle of article Among the many measures the Democrats want to push through Congress, is the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (S-510), which will essentially bring the agriculture industry under the control of the federal government. From day one of this administration, the goal has been to "transform the United States of America" into a socialist-like system in which formerly-free people must get government's permission to exercise their liberty or pursue their happiness. Another measure that makes Democrats drool is the Clean Water Restoration Act (S-787). This bill would give to the federal government jurisdiction over every drop...

    For two years we've been waiting, and now Election Day is here. The polls are open on the east coast and will be opening shortly here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and all across the country, and I pray that the turnout is a record number of America-loving patriots. I also pray the socialist slugs will stay home, but I know we have a terrible upcoming battle against the cheating liberals in every election taking place today. After the past two years of unbelievable, unconstitutional overreach by the America-hating left in Washington, the majority of Americans has had enough and...

    Since the beginnings of our country, the 2 November 2010 election cycle is the most important in our nation’s history. To be sure, there have been other times in said history that were perilous; most notably under the progressive (a.k.a. leftist, Marxist, fascist) reins and reigns of Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter and even Teddy Roosevelt. During their respective presidencies (especially under Wilson who created the Committee on Public Information [CPI] our nations’ first true ministry of propaganda--one which would prove to be [amongst other Wilson offerings] an inspiration to then burgeoning Nazi Germany). But, none of...

  • Voters to Democrats: It's Obamacare, stupid

    11/02/2010 5:14:49 AM PDT · by markomalley · 43 replies
    "We can run on this," David Axelrod, President Obama's chief political strategist, said nine months ago as Congress debated Obamacare. On Tuesday, the president's party appears poised to lose control of the House and to be reduced to dependence on Vice President Joe Biden's tiebreaking vote to retain vestigial power in the Senate. Axelrod's advice surely ranks among the worst campaign miscalculations in American political history. And it is indeed difficult to account for an error of such magnitude without thinking that Obama and Axelrod ignored what they surely could see with their own eyes. The evidence was certainly there...

Clinton told students and civic leaders in Malaysia that she had spoken to Obama by phone on the eve of the vote, and joked that she thought he seemed "a little envious" that she was abroad for an election that may see Democrats lose control of Congress."I think he was a little envious that I am here," Clinton said,...

    This election is not over. Not by a long shot. If you think Democrats and Progressives are going to sit on their hands and watch this wave election happen, you are deluding yourself. This morning, in small towns across this nation, labor unions, activist groups, and other liberal machinery is activating, driving people to the polls as much as they can. They may or may not be successful. But ultimately, one thing can stop them: your vote. If you care about what happens with politics in this country, this is the time to show it: vote now. Here is the...
