Its hard to be upbeat this morning. So, we’ll hold on for another 4 years hoping only that those who want to live in a socialist nation with irresponsible, dishonest and corrupt people running our country will experience the rath of their decision and decide better next time. In the meantime, we’ll move forward with our work, our families and God almighty, remembering that there is a reason for everything. We’ll be informed and smart in our decisions, hold on to and take care of those we love and fight on.
I don’t know why our fellow citizens care so little about their own abilities to make their lives what they want them to be. I don’t know why they don’t care about dishonesty, corruption, fiscal irresponsibililty and evil. Those are questions I cannot answer. I only know we must move on and worry about the things we can control and do whatever God asks of us each day. We must take his plan and live it one day at a time. This is the only road to true peace and happiness. Mostly, we must not lose heart for we know that God has our back and even this great country of ours is only our temporary home. I’ll get there….maybe tomorrow.
After weeks of worrying, reading like a mad person everything I could get my hands on, its come down to what this election has and always will be about. A choice between people who want to be the masters of their own economic destiny and those who are willing to let the government be in charge. Its a choice between freedom and well, less freedom. For me, a choice between living life where you worry daily about what else the government is trying to do behind your back that will make your life and liberty more precarious, or a government you really don’t think about until you have to make trip to the BMV. Its a choice between the party of Stephanie Cutter and Debbie Wasserman Schulz and the Black Panthers who lie and intimidate or the party of the the Tea Party, regular Americans who were impugned because they wanted their kids to grow up in the same country they did, and for once weren’t afraid to say it.
No matter what happens tonight, the fight will go on. Should the the battle be lost the war for our country and her freedoms will go on unabated. Should we we win, only the battle only will be won. And though the fight for our freedom will not be over, it will be the dawn of a new day in America where the darkest days of the last 4 years will be over. Where once again the wheels of the economy will begin moving and a new era of confidence in our government and our fellow citizens will abound.
And though its hard to know what will happen tonight, it is not hard to know that the war started by Barack Obama and the Democrat party on our fundamental freedoms will be finished by America and her citizens. We will take back our media from the corrupt minions of the socialists/communists that inhabit the once great Democratic party and once great pillar of Constituional protection.
While the election will be over, no matter what happens America will never be over so long as God permits.

Few people in this life have the good fortune to know and live nearly a full lifetime with grandparents. We buried our 94 year old grandmother yesterday. Three days before she died, was her 66th wedding anniversary to our grandfather who died nearly 12 years ago. At the visitation the night before her funeral, we were asked to share stories about our grandmother. The story I shared I had told before to my mom, brothers and sisters and a few cousins. But this time, it was a story to share with all those family members who were gathered there. When I was in my late twenties, I was living in downtown Chicago. I got a call from my mom that my grandmother, an accomplished artist and my grandfather, who made all the frames for her paintings were coming to sell her artwork at the Gold Coast Art Fair. At first, I was nervous about how and where they would park their van full of her beautiful pieces in the large and sometimes crazy city. I had no car to chauffer them around and thought myself completely inept at taking care of these two 70 year olds in the big city. All I had to offer was my 450 square foot apartment in Lincoln Park where they insisted they sleep on the floor. After they arrived, and parked their van, I watched my grandfather carry large racks from the van and set them up in the hot Chicago summer sun, tools hanging from his belt. I watched my grandmother arrange the paintings on the racks to optimize their appeal to the potential fair goers. I watched her at the fair talking to the admirers of her work. She was amazing. I was in complete awe of them. They were rugged and determined. They were warm, smart, funny and talented; the both of them. I felt as though I was the most inept late twenty-something year old, ever and that my worry about taking care of them was beyond ridiculous. They didn’t need me or anyone. In fact, I realized, they could likely do a better job of taking care of me, than I could ever do looking out for them, even in the big city.
Yesterday, I listened to tributes to my grandmother, and how my grandparents lived their early lives in abject poverty. Then, I looked around at the humanity that was their legacy and I was in utter awe of them once more. Only this time, it was emotionally overwhelming. They raised 8 children. As most of their 126 grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren walked down the aisle in church carrying flowers in her honor, it was apparent, again, that with the freedom provided by our nation and faith in Almighty God, nearly anything is possible.
Yes, as the days turn into weeks and years, we will miss her. But we will carry with us forever her love, generosity, acceptance, and the beautiful artwork she left us. For those of us left behind, the journey continues. Even with sorrowful hearts, and a profound sense of loss, we must forge ahead with the legacies of both of them. We must honor their faith and rugged determination to make the world and our country a better place because they were here.
Grandma, few people are lucky enough to live into their 50’s with their grandmother still living. All in all, few people were lucky enough to know you…..few people were lucky enough to hear your laughter and feel your warm hospitality…few people are lucky enough to have their grandparents artwork and handiwork hanging in their homes, a reminder of both of you and your glorious talents…few people in this world were lucky enough to be called your family. So go on and paint beautiful pictures, only now, with the colors of heaven. Rest in peace and so long. We know we will see you again. In the mean time, please ask God to provide the grace we need to carry on in his image. This way, perhaps we can be eternally worthy of how proud you always were of all of us. Thank you for everything. We will always love you and be forever grateful to be a part of those chosen few people.
If you haven’t watched the video of President Obama’s speech at Hampton University, you should. He is a racist. He touts Jeremiah Wright as a great leader for our country even though he said the 911 attacks were “America's chickens coming home to roost” and “Not God Bless America, but God D**n America!”. Jeremiah Wright and President Obama are the same. They are the same as Van Jones holding the same views of our country, that America is full of racist exploiters of minorities. Recall Van Jones, appointed to Obama’s cabinet was an admitted 911 truther (believed that George Bush was responsible for the 911 terror attacks) and is an admitted communist.
Unemployment in this country has been over 8% for over 40 straight months. More people than ever before are on food stamps. Our American Ambassador and 3 other Americans, including 2 former Navy Seals were killed in Benghazi. President Obama and his administration lied for days, blaming a 4 month old Youtube video when records show that within 24 hours they knew it was a terrorist attack. The late Ambassador Stevens requested additional security, but was denied by the Obama administration.
Obamacare will ruin healthcare in this country. Don’t believe that, for God sake do some research on your own. It will cause more job losses as fines or mandatory insurance requirements will put small businesses out of business. Medicare will be cut and an Independent Advisory board of unelected people will be deciding which of our seniors get healthcare and which don’t. We will be headed to single payer healthcare that will eventually put all of our healthcare decisions in the hands of bureaucrats, not our families or our physicians. There will be doctor shortages. The greatest healthcare in the world will be destroyed. By the time this is a reality, it will be too late to turn back.
President Obama and his minions attack and impugn success and hardworking people. They are Socialist/Ccommunist/Marxists and hate the founding principles of our government. Given 4 more years, they will continue the destruction of our country and our way of life for generations to come.
The media is destroying our freedom, one selective report at a time. They are no longer objective and are the greatest threat to all Americans. They refuse to do their jobs; they are a part of Obama and the Democrat/Socialist/Marxist party. They have skewed the polls and they are in charge of the debates. There is no doubt; they will let President Obama come out looking like the winner, no matter how he performs. They will rush to make that declaration immediately.
TURN OFF THE MEDIA AND VOTE. This is not a time for passive participation. The people running our government and media are flagrant unapologetic liars. They do not believe in America as it was founded on freedom, liberty and free enterprise. Under the radar, we can vote them out and start our country back on the track of personal and individual freedom. November 6 will be the most important day in our country’s recent history. Make no mistake. President Obama’s re-election would be an unmitigated disaster for all freedom-loving Americans. There is simply no doubt about it. You can act now, or you can believe the lies of the President Obama and the Democrats and we will all most certainly, pay gravely later.
I could connect to dozens of headlines that support the ongoing contention that we no longer have objective journalism. This is a fact. Not only are we faced with an opposing party who no longer share the values of our collective nation or the principles of freedom, they are given free publicity and a pass on every lie they tell and every assualt they make on our freedom. Consider this one fact. 53% of the people of this country are scared to death of Obamacare and what it means to their future access to healthcare and medicine, their finances and the job market. Obamacare is an utter disaster. This has always been the pillar of socialism. Get control people’s access to medicine and get control the people. That’s why no matter how much or how long this opposition has been sustained, the Democrats and President Obama are holding on white knuckled to this first giant step to socializing our nation. Socialism is a freedom killer and nothing more than the shared misery of its citizens. And it doesn’t work. Take a look at Greece and Spain. People are rioting in the streets as their government makes much needed budget cuts to their entitlements. These cuts result in lower wages, pensions and healthcare benefits. These countries are simply out of money to support their dependent citizenry. These desperate people have no place else to turn because they’re dependent on the government. They can’t get a new job, or pursue other opportunities, because quite simply there are none.
When you become a parent, you realize, for the first time, that you would sacrifice anything for your kids. Even when they don’t know what they’re doing, and make mistakes, you never stop fighting for them. As a people, we must fight for our country as we know it. If President Obama is re-elected, the fight won’t be over, but it will be harder and harder for our children to ever realize the American dreams the rest of us have lived. And even as young people think the Democrats and President Obama are the answer, they will literally be destroying their freedom and economic and financial futures.
Ignore the media and get out the vote. They can say whatever they want but it won’t matter if no one is listening. The Democrats and the media can be defeated by the boots on the ground on election day of every freedom-loving citizen in America. We understand what’s happening. And, it is frightening to some degree. But it is the same determination we have from the moment we lay our eyes on the faces of our children when they’re born that we will fight for them, doing anything to protect them and their futures. The time for that fight is now.
Not that this can or will work, but as a person who works in market research, there is NO doubt that any of the polls saying President Obama is winning this race are fallacy. In short, these polls are oversampling Democratic supporters by as many as 13 points; i.e. 32% Republican/45% Democrat. Of course in such a poll the President will always come out ahead. The media will not stand by and let Romney/Ryan win fair and square. The media coverage is biased and many of these same outlets sponsor these polls.
As always, important events and how the President is handling them are going un-reported. The proper questions about the Libyan attacks are not getting asked, and this administration is covering up what happened. They are doing so even to the point where the admininstration is saying this was a planned attack and, at the same time, the President is still saying its because of some video that was released in June of this year on Youtube. Even the Libyan President is disputing President Obama’s story. The leaders of both his campaign, Stephanie Cutter and his party, Debbie Wasserman Schultz are both proven liars. Yet they are not questioned about these facts in the press. The press continues to harp on Mitt Romney’s tax returns as though these are more important than our President’s bungling and lying about grave and important foreign policy events and issues.
To get some good polling information go to unskewedpolls.com. All of the major released polls are weighted to the actual averages of Republicans vs Democrats in the electorate. You’ll see that Governor Romney is running away with this election. President Obama’s approval rating is under 50%. All incumbents under 50% historically lose. He is 14% ahead with middle class voters. He has a double digit lead with independents. Veteran voters are leaving him in droves. 53% of Americans want the disaster that is Obamacare repealed and they know this election is our last chance to see that to the end. We ARE winning this election. To make this complete and ensure our freedom for generations, we must win the war against the elite media in this country. These people do not believe in the ideals of the founding fathers and they refuse to let President Obama’s legacy be worse than Jimmy Carter. They are without a doubt, the enemies of freedom.
Get out and vote — ignore the press and their skewed polls— we must have the best turnout to elect Romney and Ryan to turn our country around. We are speeding toward a fiscal cliff and more freedom-robbing statist polices. Another Obama term and we will most certainly face fiscal and economic disaster. In my professional travels, I have spoken to business leaders who are saying they don’t know how they’ll stay in business if they have to comply with Obamacare. Obviously this equals fewer jobs and higher unemployment. These enemies of freedom are prepared to do whatever it takes to re-elect President Obama. We must do everything we can to defeat them at the ballot box.
Check with unskewed polls (unskewedpolls.com) every day and keep your spirits up. We can win this thing and the future of our great nation for generations.
Remember that on October 9, 2007, 11 months before our econimic crisis occured (that was actually created), the Dow hit its highest point ever, closing at 14,198.10 intra-day level 2 days later. Unemployment was steady at 4.7%. But things were already being put in place to create the havoc weve all been experiencing since then. And it all started on January 3 2007. I’m copying this to each of you regardless of your party preferences becasue I believe it is something you may not have considered. This tells the story, why Bush was so bad at the end of his term. Don’t just skim over this, its not very long, read it slowly and let it sing in If in doubt, check it out!!!
The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007, which was the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress. The democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the firt time since the end of the 103rd congress in 1995. For those who are listening tothe liberals prpagating the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault”, think about this:
January 3rd 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:
The Dow closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD OF 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS OF JOB GROWTH
Remember the day…January 3rd,2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!!!!
Unemployment… to this CRISIS by (among many other things) dumping 5-6 Trillion dollars of toxic loans on the economy from your Fannie May and Freddie Mac Fiascoes!
Bushed asked congress 17 times to stop Fannie &Freddie- starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy. And who took the Third highest pay-off from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? OBAMA, and who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress.
So when someone tries to blame Bush, Remeber January 3rd 2007…The Day the Deomocrats Took Over
Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party. Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 &2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. Ath that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill as President to complete 2009. If the Domocrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican Budgets. That deficit was the lowest in 5 years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.
If obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since.
Proof President Obama is in favor of redistribution of wealth; Socialism.
