Election 2010: Vote for Freedom, not 'Free' Stuff!
"This election I will be voting for FREEDOM, and not for FREE STUFF."
--- Roy, talk show caller, Friday, 10/29/10
What a great quote. Not sure on what program I heard that wise quote, but I wrote it down while driving in my car. It embodies the urgency and the importance of this election.
in one corner of the proverbial ring, dressed in black trunks and in full Halloween consume, the reigning 'champions' of mayhem and massive debt, the big-government, tax and spend, Pro-Death Democrats, nearly all of them rubber stamps for the Soetoro/Obama-Pelosi-Reid regime and their spooky socialist agenda. We must not forget what this terrible triumvirate and their allies in Congress have done to America these last two years - Bailouts, ObamaCare, Stimulus, Cash for Clunkers, Financial 'Reform,' Abortion Funding, Earmarks, Sotomayor, and Kagan. Most incumbents, Democrats and RINOs, need to be dethroned, fired.
In the other corner and dressed in angry red trunks and wearing revolutionary garb, are a growing number of real conservatives, who have a real chance to get elected and to make a difference in Tuesday's election. Such notables as Sharron Angle in Nevada, Rand Paul in Kentucky, Dino Rossi in Washington, Ken Buck in Missouri, Mike Lee in Utah, Marco Rubio in Florida, Christine O'Donnell in Delaware, Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Ron Johnson in Wisconsin, John Raese in West Virginia, and Joe Miller in Alaska. These are the Davids of our day, fighting the Government Goliath. These are the Gideons, the Republican conservative remnant, that will work to defend the constitution and the values and principles that have make America the light on the hill for all the world to see.
Likewise, in the U.S. House there are a growing number of real conservatives, black and white who will do their part in trying to right the sinking, stinking Republican ship. They will try to right and to steer that ship with all that they can in a venerable constitutional direction and in opposition to a party (GOP), which seemingly and unseemly wants to tow the liberal line behind the likes of Lindsey Graham, Olympia Snowe and John McCain.
