    Kansas City Star ^ | 11/02/12 | David Helling
    Missouri Democrats are worried — about Kansas. They fear messages bleeding over the border will scare some of their voters away from the polls. In particular, they’re nervous about a highly visible advertising campaign telling Kansans they’ll need a picture ID to cast their ballots this year. Pictures aren’t required to vote in Missouri, in part because Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed a photo ID law last year Read more here: http://www.kansascity.com/2012/11/02/3898971/missouri-democrats-worried-kansas.html#storylink=cpy

  • On Election Eve, Catholics Unite to Protect Religious Freedom

    Big Government ^ | 11/4/12 | Dr. Susan Berry
    This last Sunday before Election Day finds Catholics across the nation, and beyond, uniting in both prayer and advocacy to protect freedom of religion as provided in the Constitution. Interestingly, the emphasis on Catholic values and teachings, as a result of the recent defense of freedom of religion, may also end up strengthening religious faith among Catholics in general. Since the announcement of what is now familiarly termed, “the HHS mandate,” Catholics and Christians of other denominations have denounced the ObamaCare provision that demands that most employers, including those associated with churches, grant free contraception, sterilization procedures, and abortion-inducing drugs...

    Final 2012 Election Predictions: Romney wins White House, GOP keeps House, and Republicans take Senate. 100% chance that Nate Silver’s career collapses into ruin. Since today is Saturday before the election and I think voters are mostly committed to what they are going to do next Tuesday, I think it’s time to lock in my personal expectations for what’s going to happen as we conclude the 2012 election season. As of sometime around 9pm CST, Mitt Romney will be declared our 45th President in what will become a commanding lead of 322 to 216 electoral votes. Republicans will hold the...

Asfari said he hoped sanctions would be lifted in return for Iran's actions, otherwise it would resume the programme, according to a website...
