  • Computer model predicts bad news for Obama in Broward, Palm Beach counties

    South Florida Sun Sentinel ^ | October 21, 2012 | Anthony Man
    Computer modeling of economic and political factors by the research firm Moody's Analytics predicts President Barack Obama will perform so badly in the Democratic strongholds of Broward and Palm Beach counties that he'll lose the state's 29 electoral votes on Nov. 6. Democrats and Republicans agree Obama must run up big margins in the three big South Florida counties if he has any hope of offsetting Republican territory elsewhere and winning statewide. That won't happen, according to the Moody's Analytics forecast, which projects Obama winning 56.3 percent of the vote in Broward, 50.8 percent in Palm Beach County and 58.7...

    You're not the only one: perhaps some funny business going on with absentee ballots this cycle, even intentional foot-dragging... I know personally of instances where the regular ballot request was sent in 8 months ago... and still nothing, here on the dawn of the most important election in US history. But you certainly don't have to stand there and have your right to vote taken by those complicit with this vile regime... DO NOT let Obama steal this thing! Here's what patriots can do to vote NOW (for those of you who haven't received an overseas absentee ballot yet): go to the...

    This is something I've been wondering for some time and am now putting it forward to FReepers in hopes of educating me and others. If we, as conservatives, believe in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, the Constitution, and all that was written down by the Founding Fathers (our founding principles), how come we are not members of the Constitution party? Why is the Republican Party better than choosing the Constitution Party?
  • WV Democrats Voting Straight Ticket Republican? (4 in 10 say they will)

    10/17/2012 12:54:41 PM PDT · by Maelstorm · 38 replies ^ | Oct 2012 | HNN Staff
    For several weeks, indeed months, President Obama's numbers in West Virginia polls have shown that this is one state that is not expected to reward Obama/Biden with our five electoral votes this year. This administration's double hit to West Virginia's economy--in the form of the war on coal and coal-fired power plants and Obamacare's sapping of our small businesses--make another term less than appetizing for most West Virginians, regardless of political party. But since we've known this dynamic in our electorate for some time, how might those voters who really want to make a statement do that in early voting...
  • Possibility of double voting a real concern in Florida

    10/15/2012 7:14:36 AM PDT · by ruralvoter · 13 replies (FL) ^ | 10/14/12 | Scott Wyland
    As the presidential race tightens and the fierce rivals try to win every vote they can, experts say flawed safeguards could allow people who live in two states to vote twice for their favorite candidate. Those same double-voters could cast ballots in congressional races in two different states, possibly affecting this year's pivotal election when both political parties are vying for control of the U.S. Senate and House. Double voting is especially a concern in Florida, where a myriad part-time residents, known as snowbirds, have a second home in a different state, giving them the chance to register to vote...

    Election Day is coming up — November 6th, 2012 — in about 24 days. That’s just a little over three weeks. I’ve gotten quite a few emails from people telling me they want to help defeat Obama, but they don’t know what to do to help on Election Day and don’t have the time to figure it out; they asked me to do that work for them and give them suggestions on what they can do to really make Democrats lose BIG this year. As always, I’m willing if you’re willing…so here are five things I’m telling my friends to...

    While some registered voters remain undecided, either impeded by Mitt Romney's Mormon faith or President Barack Obama's troubling social policies, one coalition of Catholic clergy is hoping its free phone app will help Christians decide how to vote based on the issues come November. The Confraternity of Catholic Clergy has made available for Android, Windows and iPhone devices what it says is the first free non-partisan voting guide for Catholics. Its Catholic Voting Guide by Little i Apps LLC was created to help users "cast a responsible vote using a well-formed conscience based on Catholic moral principles." "With Election Day...

    The complaint filed by two state senators against Secretary of State Mark Ritchie over his conduct related to the state's proposed voter ID amendment is scheduled for a hearing Friday morning. Administrative law judge Bruce Johnson issued an order Tuesday, Oct. 9, concluding that the allegations, if true, would constitute a violation and thus a probable cause hearing was merited. Republican Sens. Mike Parry of Waseca and Scott Newman of Hutchinson filed the complaint Thursday with the Office of Administrative Hearings. It alleged that Ritchie, a Democrat and opponent of the proposed amendment -- which would require all voters to...
  • Obama, Romney, Other: Who Should Christians Vote for in the 2012 Election?

    America is like a train going rapidly toward a cliff. The election of 2012 may determine if we fly off the precipice, or slow down enough to get the train turned around. (snip) So then, who should we vote for this November? In regards to the upcoming presidential election, I have heard some Christians say they will not vote for Barack Obama since he clearly supports and promotes issues contrary to the Bible, like abortion and homosexual marriage. But, they say, they cannot vote for Mitt Romney because he is a Mormon, and they point out the unbiblical doctrines of...

    When Barack Obama was elected in 2008 people threw their support behind hope and change. They placed their trust in Obama to usher in a new age of bipartisanship and unity. After all he was the man said who said we were all Americans no matter whether we came from blue or red states. People were inspired by his words and believed he would reduce the debt, save the economy, end the wars, and change the way business was conducted in Washington. They chanted “yes we can” and embarked on a quest to get the man who would be America’s...

    Hello, for Nov 6, 2012 I vote in Florida my official address, but I am not living there at the moment so I am not familiar with the local issues in the County of Hillsborough, Tampa, FL. I need help on how to fill in the absentee Ballot with social-conservative/conservative choices. I am interested in the "local Issues" (i.e. Judges for FL supreme court, District Court of appeals judges running for re-election; School Board candidates, the amendments, Sheriff, the works). I already picked everyone with the "R" I found; now I need the "unknown" ones. On Amendments (I need opinions...

    The city of Detroit plans to remove a citizenship question from ballot applications. Under state law anyone requesting a ballot is required to check a box on a form answering the question of whether he is a citizen. Detroit Elections Director Daniel Baxter says he doesn’t see the utility of the requirement. “It doesn’t really verify eligibility,” Baxter pointed out. “An ineligible person could simply lie and say he is a citizen.” Secretary of State Ruth Johnson acknowledged that the check-box can’t verify eligibility, but argued that it still serves a useful purpose. “First, it informs the would-be voter that...

    Two Republican state senators announced Thursday, Oct. 4, that they have filed a complaint with the Office of Administrative Hearings over Secretary of State Mark Ritchie's conduct related to the state's proposed voter-ID amendment. Mike Parry of Waseca and Scott Newman of Hutchinson said they were filing the complaint on their own behalf. They say Ritchie, an opponent of the proposed amendment that would require voters to present a photo ID at the polls, has made false statements and improperly used his office to work against the amendment's passage. A spokeswoman for Ritchie said shortly after noon on Thursday that...
  • Beware Electronic Voting

    To paraphrase 15th Century Dutch Philosopher Erasmus’ well-known characterization of women -- "technology, can't live with it, can't live without it." Ever since the debacle that was the vote counting in Florida a dozen years ago, virtually every jurisdiction in the country has moved away from some form of manual voting machine to embrace the technology of electronic voting ("e-voting" for short). Yet, as states and local elections offices have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to institute e-voting, little attention has been paid the potential dangers inherent in this form of vote counting. Indeed, even as many Republican voters...

    Since the Republican Legislature passed laws last year to regulate groups that independently register voters in Florida, Democrats have swamped Republicans in registering new voters. State elections data show that, through Sept. 24, the Florida Democratic Party had registered more than 230,741 new voters since the laws went into effect July 1, 2011. Republicans had turned in just 46,373 new voter registrations during that time. Still, both parties are bucking a strong tide against them. In the past four years, the number of voters registered "No Party Affiliation" — the principal category for unaligned voters — has increased by 282,000....

    HARRISBURG — A Commonwealth Court judge on Tuesday kept most of the voter ID law intact, ruling the state can ask for photo ID in the Nov. 6 election but people without it still can vote. The November election will be similar to the “soft rollout” used in the April primary when voter ID was optional. Judge Robert Simpson also blocked language that would have discounted provisional ballots for voters without ID who could not verify their identity within six days. Opponents of the law asked to block it entirely over concerns it would disenfranchise voters. Simpson granted a preliminary...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Some illegal immigrants could get California drivers licenses under a bill that Gov. Jerry Brown announced he signed into law late Sunday. AB2189 by Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, will let the Department of Motor Vehicles issue licenses to illegal immigrants eligible for work permits under a new Obama administration policy. The bill requires the department to accept as proof of legal residence whatever document the federal government provides to participants in its deferred action program. Cedillo said his bill will make roads safer while letting young immigrants drive to school and to work. His reasoning drew...

    To counter the gloom and doom spread by the corrupt, vintage media (which has definitely become a Ministry of Truth pumping out nonstop Democrat propaganda) let’s today examine who out there is really voting for Barack Obama in 2012. From where I sit, things shake out like this: Those Voting for Obama No Matter What: * Blacks — who will vote out of race-pride like they did in 2008. Black voters are the most racist in the country, supporting Obama with 95% of their numbers. Once again, blacks will prove that the job a person does in office is not...
