America IS Right. Fight for Her Today.

This is the very first Election Day for America’s Right. Furthermore, I feel as though my own ideological progression has led up to this very day. My friends, we’re facing a stark decision today, the result of which will have consequences on our freedom, our economy, our security and our culture for a generation or more.

Come with me today as we learn what we will about America’s fate. Share your thoughts as I share my own (I’ll do my best to moderate comments as often as possible), and keep your fingers crossed that our nation comes out the winner as the returns come in tonight.

12:15am — Protect Our Nation from Within. Vote McCain.

The very first post at America’s Right was a tongue-in-cheek endorsement of former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson for president. Though Thompson proved to be what I later called a “recumbent conservative” as he meandered his way through a presidential campaign which looked more wagon than pony, it was the “conservative” that mattered.

I wanted someone who would tax less and spend less. I wanted someone who would shut our borders and enforce our laws. I wanted someone who recognized evil when he saw it, and knew that mere talk and blind, superficial diplomacy was the worst possible way to deal with it. I wanted someone who valued the lives of our most defenseless. I wanted someone who would respect the United States Constitution and foster “a return to Jeffersonian federalism,” someone who understood that it was the American people and not the United States federal government which represented the “thousand sparks of genius” whose virtues were extolled by President Ronald Reagan in his 1988 State of the Union address.

From everything he had written and said, Fred Dalton Thompson, to me, embodied the closest thing to a true conservative as could be found in today’s political landscape — and, darn it, I wanted a true conservative in the White House come January of 2009. Yet, I know full well that blame for anything but victory today will be placed at the feet of conservatives and conservatism, even though such a loss would in reality be caused by the departure from conservative values.

For that reason, I haven’t found it particularly easy to lavish praise onto Sen. John McCain. Some of you have surely noticed it. Even throughout February and March, however, as I absolutely savaged the Arizona senator for his habit of running to the left when spooked, I never lost sight of his unmatched honor and unparalleled love for this country.

John McCain has fought for America longer than his opponent has been alive, and spent more time languishing, bruised, beaten and broken, in a North Vietnamese prison than his opponent has spent in the United States Senate. Like those who fought and bled through cold winters and immeasurably dismal odds in Boston, in Brooklyn, in Princeton and beyond nearly 200 years before his A-4E Skyhawk was torn from the skies above Hanoi, John McCain has given everything and more out of unfettered faith that the great experiment which is America could be a beacon of freedom for Her own people as well as those across the world.

Yet this very day, he faces an opponent who treats America like an extroverted child that needs to be pacified, scolded, reprimanded and tossed into the corner for a “time out,” a man who counts among his closest friends and associates people who believe that America is the problem and not the solution. An unrepentant domestic terrorist and his wife who, as recently as last year, have maintained that violence is an acceptable form of dissent and that they haven’t done enough. A supporter of Palestinian terrorism against Israel and his wife, the latter formerly the chief English language translator to Yasser Arafat. Two preachers and a priest who align themselves with Louis Farrakhan and believe that the United States government created the AIDS virus to eradicate the black race. A few card-carrying communists. A corrupt Syrian businessman. An adviser to a Saudi billionaire. A mentor to the founding members of the Black Panther Party. Today, the American voting public could give this man–rather than the man who has several times escaped death while fighting for America and everything for which She stands–the highest security clearance in all the land.

John McCain is an American, through and through, and has earned the respect of our current and former fighting men and women at home and abroad. Despite his misgivings, Americans can rest assured knowing that John McCain wants nothing more than for America to continue at Her spot as that shining city on a hill, the greatest financial and military power on the planet. John McCain has dedicated his life to Lady Liberty as a soldier, as a congressman, and as a United States Senator. He will do no different as president. Barack Obama, however, considers himself to be a “Citizen of the World,” and is bigger in Berlin than David Hasselhoff could ever hope to be. Americans from coast to coast need to know that Obama would rather see America resign Herself from that position atop the other nations on the globe, that he would like nothing more than for America and Her people to subject themselves to international laws, to international customs, to the laws and policies and goals and aspirations of states which, for years, have fought back overt showings of jealousy with regard to our prosperity and freedom.

John McCain feels that Americans are better off with their hard-earned money in their own pocket. He knows that the best way to foster innovation and growth is for government to get out of the way, to allow Americans to do what they do best — think, work, and work harder. He knows that cutting capital gains taxes will encourage investment, that cutting corporate taxes will lead to more jobs. Barack Obama, however, believes that your hard-earned money is best entrusted to a bloated federal government, that the financial reward for your long hours, for your dirty fingernails and for your elbow grease should be redistributed to those who would rather take than give, rather pass blame than shoulder personal responsibility. Obama believes that capital gains and corporate taxes should be raised out of “fairness,” consequences be damned. He wants to place more and more regulation on American industry and business, forcing entire industries–coal energy, for example–to transfer operations overseas or face bankruptcy here. Success? Punished. Prosperity? Squandered in the name of “social justice.”

John McCain wants judges who will strictly interpret the United States Constitution, while Barack Obama wants judges who will empathize with single mothers, favor the weak over the strong, legislate from the bench, and kow-tow to international authority. McCain looks at Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito as his models for the United States Supreme Court, while Barack Obama’s selections would make the Ninth Circuit activists look like Scaliaesque hypertextualists by comparison. Every clause of our founding documents are there for a reason, composed by those who knew tyranny firsthand and wanted nothing of it; Obama, disappointed that the Supreme Court never interpreted our constitution so as to force the redistribution of wealth to African-Americans following the civil rights movement, dismissed the United States constitution as being “fundamentally flawed” and “reflective of a blind spot in this culture that carries on until this day.”

John McCain understands that life begins at conception, that we must protect those among us who are the most defenseless, while Barack Obama is to the political left of Planned Parenthood and NARAL, advocates partial-birth abortion, and struggled while in the Illinois State Senate to find a rhetorical flourish fit enough to rationalize leaving living, breathing, babies to die without medical attention after surviving a botched abortion. (I used to be “pro-choice” too, and then saw the tiny little children in the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit next to my own daughter who had been born six weeks early; it was at that point where I discovered just how selfish my stance on that issue had been.)

John McCain knows that the long-term prosperity and security of America depends upon energy independence and believes that we should build nuclear plants and make use of our own natural resources, while Barack Obama waffled on offshore drilling, wavered on nuclear power, and believes that we can offset our dependence on foreign oil by tuning up our cars, filling up our tires and, like Jimmy Carter once said, putting on a sweater. During a stump speech in California nearly six months ago, Obama said that “we can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times, and then just expect that other countries are going to say okay.” While I cannot know for sure, I’d expect that John McCain doesn’t really care about what Gordon Brown thinks of his thermostat.

John McCain has the judgment and the leadership to ensure the continued safety and security of the American public, for you and your friends and your family and your neighbors to be free from the threat of terrorism and Islamic Jihad through the blood, sweat, tears, hard work and courage of our fighting men and women and their families at home and abroad. “To insist on strength is not war-mongering,” John McCain’s predecessor, Barry Goldwater, once said, “it is peace-mongering.” Barack Obama wants to radically cut defense spending, cut funding for our troops in harm’s way, cut spending on future combat systems, cut intelligence capabilities, and talk without preconditions with foreign leaders who wake up each and every morning from glorious dreams of our demise.

Ronald Reagan once said that “the ultimate determinant in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas — a trial of spiritual resolve: the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish, and the ideals to which we are dedicated.” He was right. The leadership and judgment necessary to the presidency comes from a set of principles, from a foundation of ideas and ideals and awareness of self and surroundings. Without those principles, without that foundation, effective leadership is impossible.

Today, as you stand in line or as you draw to a close the curtain behind you, think of the values you hold, the beliefs you cherish, and the ideals to which you are dedicated, and cast your vote for the man you believe best comports with those principles. Confronted with the ballot, you can vote for the man who fought for and was prepared to die for the United States of America or, if you so desire, for the man who wants nothing more than to cast aside the freedoms and prosperity of our great nation in the name of so-called “fairness,” “social justice,” and “change.”

America, founded by imperfect men who knew not so much what they wanted to establish as exactly what it was from which they had escaped, always has been and still is now the greatest hope for freedom in the entire world. Millions have fought in Her name, hundreds of thousands have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Yet, as strong as America may be, many know not just how fragile She truly is. Civilizations far more immense and far more powerful–relatively speaking, of course–have risen and subsequently fallen. America, my friends, is no different. America is not infallible.

Today, each one of us has the chance to defend America in ways which no battalion or arsenal could. We have the unique chance to defend Her from within, strengthening Her foundation with the very principles which Her founders knew would be the key to continued prosperity, to security, to strength, to freedom.

Fight for America today. Vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin.

I will be. I already have a Savior — what I need is a president.

1:45am — Official Election Day Message from John McCain’s Campaign

By way of a family member–one of a few conservatives!–I received the following Election Day message from the Arizona senator’s presidential campaign:


My Friend,

From the time I entered the Naval Academy at age seventeen I have been privileged and honored to serve my country.

Throughout my years of service, I’ve been faced with challenges where I could have taken the easy way out and given up. But I’m an American and I never give up. Instead, I choose to show courage and stand up and fight for the country I love. Today, I am asking you to stand with me and to fight for our country’s future.

Our country faces enormous challenges and our next president must be ready to lead on day one. My lifetime of experience has prepared me to lead our great nation. I’m prepared to bring solutions to our economic challenges, bring our troops home in victory and improve our nation’s healthcare system.

Time and time again, my country has saved my life and I owe her more than she has ever owed me. I have chosen to show my gratitude through a life of service to our country and tomorrow, you will have a choice before you.

I humbly ask you to make the choice that will allow me to serve my country a little while longer by casting your vote to elect me as your next President of the United States.

Finally, I ask that you never forget that much has been sacrificed to protect our right to vote. We must never forget those Americans who, with their courage, with their sacrifice, and with their lives, have protected our freedom. It is my great hope that you will exercise your right to vote as an American tomorrow.

I thank you for your kind support, your dedication to our cause, and most importantly I thank you for your vote.

With sincere appreciation,

John McCain


I’ve said a great deal of things about John McCain, some not so nice, most of which centered around the idea that he is, well, far too centered politically for my tastes. Still, I keep coming back to the same argument, though — this man loves his country.

It is unfortunate that McCain is viewed by many to be the “lesser of two evils.” I understand the sentiment, and I still know of several people–many of which live in contentious and contestable states like Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan and Ohio–who maintain that they cannot vote for him because of some reason or another, who rationalize a vote for Bob Barr or Craig Baldwin or Ralph Nader out of frustration that the GOP candidate is less-than-perfect.

I’m sure they’re not alone.

Yet, who IS perfect? What situation IS perfect? If it is conservatism that they’re so worried about, perhaps they should consider that the blame for anything short of total victory today will, across the board, be inevitably placed squarely at the feet of Sarah Palin, of conservatives, and of conservatism as a whole — when, in reality, any loss could directly be attributed to McCain’s penchant for reaching across the aisle.

Regardless of John McCain’s perceived shortcomings in the eyes of conservatives like myself, the perpetuity of the conservative movement is at stake today. With so many young, exciting, courageous and eloquent up-and-coming polestars on the political right, people like Palin, like Bobby Jindal, Eric Cantor, Mike Pence, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Mark Sanford, Jim DeMint and more, this is the time to stand up for the movement by electing John McCain, the man who, by selecting Palin as his running mate, chose to place the future of the GOP in the hands of pro-free market, pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, fiscal, social and foreign policy conservatives who put America first and party second.

Country first. Party–and everything else, for that matter–second. An e-mail I received a few minutes ago from an America’s Right reader put it nicely:


Pray for our beautiful country tonight.
Pray that God will allow us to keep our freedom, under the stewardship of two people who love our country.


I couldn’t agree more. Today, it is essential that love for country prevail over the “Blame America First” mentality. Our very freedoms, the ideals for which so many fought and died, all of it depends upon it.

1:00pm — Midday News

In the hours since I cast my vote this morning–turnout was incredible, with gray-haired poll workers saying that they’ve never seen it like this–a host of interesting news stories and updates has come across my Blackberry. While this isn’t all of them, I thought I would share a few:


FOX NEWS: ‘BLACK PANTHERS’ BLOCK ACCESS TO VOTING STATION

(FROM: YouTube) Two Black Panthers, one of which brandishing a nightstick, saying that a black man is going to win this election “one way or another.” Somehow, here in the City of Brotherly Love, this doesn’t surprise me. Also, gosh, it just so happens that one of Barack Obama’s friends–in fact, the guy who helped get him into Harvard–was a mentor to the founding members of the Black Panther Party. All that aside, could you imagine the outcry if, at a polling station in Jackson, Mississippi, a bunch of skinheads were brandishing weapons and guarding the doors while saying that, one way or another, the white guy was going to win this election? Could you imagine?

REPUBLICAN ELECTION WORKERS THROWN OUT IN PHILLY
(FROM: Townhall) As the article points out, the denial of access to minority–here, republican–poll workers is a violation of state law. Isn’t it nice that the law matters so much to democrats and supporters of Barack Obama when it comes to the election?

SOUTER DENIES PHILIP BERG’S INJUNCTION TO STAY ELECTION
(FROM: SCOTUS Docket) Realistically, folks, did anyone really suspect otherwise? Now, that doesn’t mean that the Petition for Writ of Certiorari has been denied as well, but as I’ve written here time and time and time again, the odds of the U.S. Supreme Court hearing Berg’s case–or any case, for that matter–are extremely slim. Via e-mail, Berg says that Obama, the DNC and the FEC have until December 1 to respond, and then he has a chance to respond to their response. He also mentioned that, while certainly disappointed, he was prepared for the denial of the injunction, that he is still cautiously optimistic that “the Supreme Court will do the right thing and avert a constitutional crisis,” and that, if not, he’s prepared to take the fight to the Electoral College.

AYERS, FARRAKHAN VOTE AT SAME LOCATION AS OBAMA
(FROM: ABC News) ABC’s Jake Tapper is reporting, on his Political Punch blog, that both unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan have cast their vote at the same polling station as Barack Obama. As funny as it may be, it really means nothing. While Obama does share their ideology, when it comes to sharing a polling station in particular, they truly are just people in Barack Obama’s neighborhood. This morning, at my polling station, for example, I noticed a six-foot-five-inch cross-dresser — if Obama merely sharing a polling place with Ayers makes him a bomber, then you can call me Shirley. Now, if I started wearing heels and makeup, just as Obama has certainly demonstrated that he has bought in to Ayers’ worldview and ideology, then we can talk about guilt-by-association.

6:45pm — Soon, Polls Begin to Close

I’m still stuck on the Blackberry, but as I’m hearing and as I’m reading, the first of the exit polls are in, and they’re not promising for John McCain. Still, they’re just that — exit polls.

I can do little else but hope and pray that the American people have done, and continue to do, the right thing for our beautiful country today. When I get home, there will be a few beers to drink and chicken wings to munch on (it’s tradition) while the returns come in. I’ll get back to you as the night progresses.

Keep your fingers crossed, and your thoughts skyward.

10:40pm — It’s over.

Fox News Channel has called Virginia for Barack Obama. He’s up to 220 electoral votes now, and will get, at the very least, the 55 electoral votes from California.

It’s done. It’s over. No can do.

Ladies and gentleman, the 44th president of the United States:

(He’s the one on the left.)

    Thank you, Jeff, for taking time from your family and studies to provide a place for America … for US!

    I am very glad that the founding fathers – of our great nation – saw to it to protect us from our ourselves … our envy, greed, sloth, ignorance and gullibility … not to mention the fact that ‘We the people’ need to be protected from being bamboozled.

    The way I look at it is …

    Today, you and I and the American people cast a ballot to tell the electoral college (of our respective states) who we believe our next President and Vice-President should be …

    The electoral college will do their due dilligence and determine in this situation:

    [1] If all of the requirements of eligibility for being elected the POTUS are met.

    [2] Is there any other serious reason that any of the candidates should be disqualified and not elected to the office of the President or Vice-President of the United States.

    For example, in this case, the original typewritten birth certificate of Senator Obama will help to show that he:

    [1] Is in fact a natural born citizen of the United States

    [2] That his given name was in fact Barack Obama

    So I’m not overly worried about today’s balloting results … the Presidential electors are bound by state law to ‘vote’ for whom they pledged to vote, but, from what I’ve read and re-re-read:

    [1] They are NOT obligated to do so

    [2] Under ‘Penalties’ of their respective state laws – although I don’t know the specifics – may be tantamount to denying them a danish with their morning coffee

    [3] ‘Unfaithful’ electors never did commit to a candidate – I don’t know how many there are in this 2008 election, but there could be enough to protect us from ourselves …

    [4] Who’s going to sue or procecute an elector or group of electors in the case where a national scandal and/or the U.S. Constitution would have been subverted?

    SO being the optimist that I usually am, I say …

    If the wisdom of our populace doesn’t see thru the ‘used car salesman’ or that Senator McCain and Governor Palin are real Patriots, then the Presidential electorates will have to rescue us from our sad delusions.

    Thank God for OUR prescient, forward thinking fore-fathers who continue to protect their beloved people and the United States of America!

    Your friend and fellow Patriot,
    Richard Lawrence

    Here is another reason to believe that Obama being born in Kenya is NOT TRUE. In 1961, as a poor pregnant woman you did not just hop on one of many daily flights from Hawaii to Kenya. In those days people didn’t travel by plane to far away places. Obmama’s mom wasn’t in Kenya, she was home in Hawaii getting ready to be a mom. I know that even today a woman like me with the means and a huge traveler of the world, I wouldn’t go to Kenya before delivering my first child. COME ON PEOPLE, THINK ABOUT IT.

    Everyone has their own opinion, but I think it would have been fairly easy for Barry’s mom to have flown to Kenya. Why do I think this? Well, there’s evidence coming out that Frank Marshall Davis is the real pop. Sorry, there’s lots of evidence coming out on it. And if you’ll look at Obama, Sr.’s picture and comparing Obama, Jr., then comparing Frank, you’ll see what I’m saying. So Frank could have paid to have Ann sent to Kenya easily. And the marriage of Obama, Sr. was a marriage of convenience, so to speak.

    Next, put that thought aside for a second. Then we have Malcolm X. There’s some talk of this too. Don’t laugh until you read various evidence regarding these points.

    From Mainemom:

    To the poster commenting on Obama’s mom, and your request that we “think about it.”

    LOTS of people HAVE spent LOTS of time thinking about it. He very well could have been born in Hawaii. I haven’t closed my mind to that possibility; perhaps you can keep your mind open to others.
    And there are many other possibilities.
    (see: http://israelinsider.ning.com/profiles/blogs/is-obama-the-secret-son-of )

    Its always a mistake to trust a leader blindly. (What’s that old saying – always question authority?) Far more prudent to select and follow a leader based on a thorough knowledge of who that person is and what they stand for, and in greater detail than a few catchy words meant to make you feel good for the moment.

    The REAL question is why Obama has gone to such great lengths to shield his past. Why not provide copies of the original Certificate of Birth (Not Certification of Birth – there is a difference.) And why post them on the internet, and not provide them to the court requesting them?

    The REAL question is what is it that Obama doesn’t want us to know about him?

    If he is to lead this country, we deserve and need to know about about his past. We need to know that yes indeed, he does fulfill the Constitutional requirements to fill the office. We should NOT simply assume he does.

    Assume: makes an Ass out of U and Me.

    What is frustrating to me is how few people really do any homework to enable themselves to vote responsibly.

    Ignorance is not bliss.

    The search for the truth about Obama will not end tonite.

    Look At The Voter Fraud Andy Martin Experienced!

    On top of the ungodly happenings, there was ONE machine in a more dominantly Republican district!

    “A few minutes ago, around 3:00 P.M., I was assaulted by someone who claimed to be a Sheriff’s deputy. I was attempting to vote in the 19th precinct, 42nd Ward, 115 W. Chicago Avenue. Your alleged deputy was dressed like a crackhead, out of uniform, and hit me while wildly waving his arms, using profanity and threatening to arrest me because I wanted to write down his name (he had no visible identification). It was one of the most disgusting examples of Daley Machine goon squad tactics I have witnessed in my forty years fighting Daley Machine corruption.

    A Chicago police officer (Donovan, 18th District) witnessed the melee. Officer Donovan conducted himself in a highly professional and peaceful manner.

    I went to vote. Having wandered into the wrong precinct (which was closer to my home) where I saw multiple voting machines, I was surprised to see my precinct had only one machine. My precinct, which is more Republican, had only the single voting machine. I spoke with people that said other precincts had 6-10 voting machines. Obviously the Daley Machine is preventing people in white precincts from voting, and encouraging voting in black precincts. This is a serious federal civil rights law violation.

    Since there was only one machine, I was offered the option of a paper ballot. I marked my choices carefully with the pen I was provided. I was then told I had “over voted.” One of the officials then began examining my “secret” ballot in the open. I became very irritated and said “I thought this was supposed to be a secret election? Why is my ballot being displayed and examined in the open.”

    At that point the man who identified himself as Mr. Dart’s Daley Machine goon ran over and started threatening me. He was yelling, acting abusively, using profanity and trying to intimidate me from continuing to vote.

    An Obama supporter who appeared to be under the influence also attempted to threaten and menace me for protesting the public display of my vote.

    The Dart goon then “ordered” me into the hall and attested to negate my ballot (one of the judges said that when the goon threatened me into the hall my vote was negated) and refused to show me any ID although he was dressed as a crackhead. He eventually pushed something in my face that I was unable to read or examine. During thus period, the goon was angry, abusive, menacing and manifested a desire to prevent me from voting.

    The controversy then moved back into the voting area, where the goon assaulted me while waving his arms uncontrollably. I checked my ballot with the machine reader, and the machine reader was not working properly. I had not over voted (I learned how to make a line between two points when I was two years old).

    Chicago has one of the worse reputations, if not the worse, for vote fraud and crooked politics. Today we saw it all: a goon, claiming to be a deputy sheriff but dressed as vagabond, who refused to identify himself and yet threaten to make arrests, and so forth. How can such a goon be on the public payroll? Oh, I forgot, he works for Tom Dart and the Daley Machine.

    I ask that you immediately and personally go to the 42nd ward, 19th precinct and remove this goon from harassing and intimidating any further voters. This man has no basis carrying a badge; he is an explosion waiting to happen.

    The idea that peoples’ ballots are being held up and examined in public, thereby negating the secret vote, and that you are once again using inoperable machines to count votes, and putting fewer voting machines in white precincts than black ones, all constitute serious and immediate threats to the integrity of the election process.

    I ask that you carefully and fully document your investigation because a lawsuit over this incident and the denial of equal protection to white voters is very likely.”

    This is the letter he wrote to the Sheriff.

    The surprises from Barack Obama, it seems, are unrelenting.

    The day of our historic Presidential election, here is some BREAKING NEWS regarding Barack Hussein Obama that may shock you. After you discover this secret of Obama’s (text and photographic evidence included), please share the information with friends and family.

    The clock is ticking. We CAN win this election.

    Jeff,
    You are getting a lot of credit here, and it is all well deserved. What you’ve done is not simple, and it takes a lot of time and intelligence, not to mention dedication. But I’m positive you will be the first to agree that it makes it much easier to do when you are defending America and your love and belief in her. That is the gut of those who defend her in uniform. It ain’t easy, but it’s damned well worth it, and this ole’ vet bows to you, sir.

    AND…

    To those concerned;
    If Obama should win the election, it falls upon the House of Representitives to insure his eligibility to hold the office of president before they allow him to be sworn in. There are no eligibilty requirements to RUN for office, just to hold that office.

    If, for whatever reason, he is sworn in and it is later determined he is NOT eligible, it will be almost the same as a man who is found to have married a woman while still having a wife. Since it is illegal to have two wives, any second marriage was illegal and void from the start, as are any results of that non-marriage. The same goes for the president being found to be ineligible after being sworn in. He was never the president because he was not qualified, therefore all actions and their results coming from his being faslely sworn in are voided. Then he is arrested, like the bigamist, and held for trial. There would be no necessity for impeachment because he was never the president, and you can’t be impeached if you aren’t the president. (If only I could will it to be…)

    Also, there are people who have the legal power necessary and have been sworn to this cause, to defend the Constitution from ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. They are our faithful armed forces. Who they would move against to accomplish that is rather simply complicated. It would be the person in power who has no right to be in power, or the one who attempts to declare the Constitution suspended. The Sec. of Defense, a non military CITIZEN, would make the orders to the JCOS.

    I really can’t imagine the guys and gals in uniform sitting back while Obama issues a new set of rules and then OBEYING him. Nope, never happen. If it does, I’m moving to Texas. “It’s a whole other country.”

    Jeff, since the electoral college is really who votes in the President, what can we do between now and January to get Obama to provide proof he was born here. I know you were sometimes critical of Berg, but now it is YOUR chance to offer a suggestion as to what WOULD WORK in this situation. Does the electoral college ask to verify citizenship. Is there a list we can use to contact people between now and the oath of office, to ask them to demand the citizenship proof? Thank you.

    Obama’s grandmother in Hawaii was a vice president of a bank. That’s not a chump job. They had money for her to cavort anywhere she wanted. She went back and forth from Washington too. She wasn’t a poor girl. They moved to Mercer Island where a communist high school was being started. The chairman of the school board was John Stenhouse and was a member of the Communist Party. His mom was 13 when they moved there. A teacher named Jim Wichterman had the students read the Communist Manifesto.

    The grandfather enlisted in the Army during WWII so I’m curious if anyone has looked into his military record and found out anything he might have done to screw this country.

    on another note, while I had avoided radio all day (TV not an option with my job), I couldn’t get away from the news once I got home. Hubby is glued to the TV, and he’s not moving. And since he’s the family cook we’re having leftovers. (he cooked ahead yesterday.)

    But guess what. Its not all doom and gloom… the jury is definitely still out on this one!

    Go McCain!
    And Sarah, Sarah, Sarah!

    yeah I confess, I got a soft spot in my heart for pitbulls. This breed has a much maligned reputation. They are actually normally quite gentle dogs, loyal and loving to their families…. it’s only when provoked that they become aggressive, and unless trained otherwise, only for the purpose of defending.

    Anyways.. HOPE is alive, so light a candle, keep praying… whatever faith path you follow…

    I voted in the 47th ward Chicago—very unorganized and no one seemed to know what they were doing. Didn’t they have any training? My ballot got rejected the first time from the machine because the precinct number was missing or something, but then she carried it over to the main table and my secret ballot was there for others to see, which unnerved me a bit. After watching them, and then handing my precious vote over, I worried it would accidentally end up in the trash or something.

    I have lived in ohio my entire 72 years and only vaguely recall maybe voting once before in my life. But this time, I couldnt not vote,because the consequences of Obama is far more grave than most realize. It will be the final destruction of this country, and few can seem to see all the reality of it.
    So I drove myself down to the church down the street, waiting till 2:00 after the crowds had voted, walked right in to an empty place, and got a paper ballot and VOTED for the first time.
    McCain / Palin, of course. NO on the gambling issue and NO on the school bond issue, and a few other offices.
    Gee, I wish I could vote again, and OFTEN– today.

    “‘People go out to vote against a candidate, not for them.’

    Now ask yourself which candidate has engendered the most fear this year?”

    That’s clear from all the responses to this blog entry. McCain, unfortunately.

    It seems people have this irrational fear that somehow we can magically become communist, socialist, and a monarchy over night despite the checks and balances built in to our government by the constitution all because we vote Obama into office.

    It must be horrid to live with such fear from theoretical threats.

    I voted for Obama because I believe in Obama, not because I am voting against McCain. If McCain wins this election, I’ll be fine.

    But if Obama wins this election, what will all you people do? Frankly, it makes me quite sad. We should be united as a country no matter who wins. In another 4 years, we’ll be able to vote again if we chose wrong.

    it makes me so sad that a man like John McCain, who stands head and shoulders above Barak Obama in terms of character, experience, dedication to and sacrifice for this country, would this day lose to a man like Obama.

    Jeff,

    Thank you for opening the eyes of many undecided and confused voters. This will be a sad day for Americans because we will have to spend 4 years living in Socialist tyranny. I finally voted for John McCain/Sarah Palin before the polls closed in Michigan. While I was inside voting my brother witnessed a poll worker mishandling ballots at the optical reader. As a former poll worker who was in charge of the Optical Reader he knew what he saw was a major violation and could consequently spoil all of the ballots submitted at the district/precinct we vote at. He submitted a message to the Michigan Republican Committee so that they could take a look into what was really going on. I just hope the RNC really makes sure no ballot tampering happens because we surely don’t want another hanging chad controversy.

    Tonight, like many, many Americans that voted for McCain I am going to bed disappointed and sad.

    Your words have struck a deep chord within many of us. Thank you for taking your time to articulate so well the jumble of emotions we are feeling so deeply.

    In the morning half of America will awaken thrilled at their new President. The other half will awaken with a different sense. I for one will be anxious as to how soon we will see the signs we all are concerned are coming.

    IF, he lives up to the expectations we are holding the first half that voted for him has the direct responsibility for the outcome. But we will ALL pay the price.

    Should he disappoint the half that put him in office….the other half of us will not be surprised.

    Doesn’t sound much like a win-win does it?

    God Bless, Jeff. You are a Patriot.

Speak Your Mind
