election 2008: One possible problem for Obama Campaign - 11/04/08 12:58 AM
Will Obama campaign be audited by Feds? From the Foundry:According to federal election law, any presidential campaign that participates in public financing is automatically audited after an election. When Barack Obama broke his promise to the American people, by forgoing the public financing system, his campaign became the first since public financing became law to have a chance of not being audited. Federal election law does still allow the FEC to audit a presidential campaign that does not participate public financing, but at least four of the six FEC Commissioners must first vote to pursue an investigation ‘for cause.‘ There is … (6 comments)

election 2008: A powerful endorsement of John McCain - 10/30/08 02:12 PM
 
From the Ornery American and science fiction writer Orson Scott Card the powerful words of his most recent article: What Really Matters as we Vote. The highlights, since now that I know who's writing these I find it unimaginable to copy the whole thing:
The air is now so full of floating feathers that it's hard to see the furniture, and the media isn't helping, as they blow the fluff around. But he goes on to say there are solid issues important enough to ponder.
Without ensuring safety for America and its allies, nothing else a president does matters at … (7 comments)

Senator Obama underpaying female staff Obama hypocritical on pay for women The two charts will say it all (from Carpe Diem)Senator Obama pays his own female staff quite a bit less than his male staff. No spin, just the facts.Oh, by the way, and I'll let you go to the original post, John McCain pays almost the same to his staff ... actually just a little bit more to his female staffers.Thanks to Doctor Perry for this very visual example of Senator Obama's hypocrisy

election 2008: Voters - Use your heads, you're being tricked - 10/15/08 12:46 AM
Disgusted with vapid voting trends Are voters so easily manipulated? Are the voters of the United States of America going to allow themselves to be manipulated by netroots trolls, Obama-mania, the major media and "prevailing opinion?"First the facts:
The race for President is actually too close to call Millions of new registrations have been submitted to vote, but they are untested voters who may or may not even show up at the polls. When polling registered voters Obama tends to lead by a larger amount than when polling "likely" voters. No one won the debates, I can't even say the debates … (17 comments)

election 2008: Elected Democrats Shunning Obama - 06/15/08 03:56 AM
Elected Democrats shunning Obama An elected Democrat, delegate to the convention no less, has endorsed John McCain!
I'm scrambling to keep up with breaking events on other fronts today, so thought I'd shoot this link up so some of you in the group can get all the details.
As the actual positions of this man become more public, he's losing his moderate support.  This is the perfect storm needed to get American hero John McCain elected to the Presidency.

Obama Sought Endorsement of Marxist Third Party in 1996
from eyeon08.com by Warner Todd Huston
We're only just scratching the surface of Obama's Chicago connections. People will be shocked to hear the things you need to do to run for office in a big city. -Patrick
Here is some interesting as well as character confirming info about one of Barack Obama's former runs for office. Apparently, Obama actively sought and received the stamp of approval of a Marxist third party that operated briefly in Chicago between 1992 and 1998. The group was called the "New Party" and was started in 1992 … (10 comments)

election 2008: Response Letter by Pennsylvania Resident to Obama - 04/12/08 07:23 AM
Dear Mr. Obama:
I listened very carefully this morning to your response to all the flack you have been receiving regarding 'bitter small town Pennsylvanians.'  Nice try.  But man, you're wearing me out!  How encouraging for Pennsylvania residents that you expanded your remarks to all small towns across America.  I must say, however, that the nation's small towns will not receive your remarks any less provocative. 
You mentioned that the remark could have been made more eloquently the first time.  But your second attempt didn't cut the mustard at eloquence either.  What we seem to have here is a strong misinterpretation on your part … (11 comments)
