Election 2008 Recommendations, Advice & Final Thoughts, Part 2 - The Congress

We continue the series of articles about tomorrow's election. We plan to look at the race for president, congressional races, ballot issues, and some resources that might help with a voter's choices.

RE: CONGRESS

It just blows my mind that the Democratic leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate have expectations of increasing their majorities. When it would seem that America should be crying out, “Oust 'em bums all of 'em from office.” Pelosi and Reid are counting on the likes of Bob Murtha and Tim Mahoney retaining their offices, when the overall approval rate has reached single digit proportions. Unbelievable. All of the turkeys should be fired. It would seem to me that as ineffective as the Congress has been the last two years especially, that there should be a mass number of Democrats looking for work for a change, not a swelling of same!

The following are candidate of whom I as a Christian and Conservative endorse, support or recommend. Those races that I reviewed and wrote about are linked to those articles. These elections will be those that I will be closely following tomorrow.
