I’ve picked you to win the Senate race.
I admit that some of my bias is colored by the fact that I want Mitch
McConnell out because of the obstruction that has cost this Country
But I still think you can win and that is based on the general public’s dislike of
McConnell and the need that more and more people are seeing that we
as a Nation need to actually DO SOMETHING.
Now the next time you are asked if you voted for Obama answer with
“Yes I did. When he ran against Senator John McCain, I voted for
Obama because Senator McCain showed the worst possible judgement in
selecting Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential mate”.
(this may twist the shorts of some but they wouldn’t vote for you
“And when the President was running for re-election, the Republicans
chose Mitt Romney, a man who lies and insults the British for how
they hold the Olympics, insults our Foreign Services workers and the
middle class who aren’t takers but struggling to get by”.
‘The Republican challenger to Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) Jeff Bell :
“I’ve done a lot of thinking about this and looked at a lot of different polls, I think it has more to do with the rise in single women,” he explained. “Single mothers particularly are automatically Democratic because of the benefits. They need benefits to survive, and so that kind of weds them to the Democratic Party.”
“But single women who have never married and don’t have children are also that way,” he added. “If you take married women, they aren’t that different from married men”.

‘In an October 8 column for conspiracy website WND, Nugent, claiming to speak on behalf of “we the people,” :
“Now more than ever, we the people are painfully aware that those subject to the separation of powers have become nothing more than a conspiratorial gang against us”.
“We refuse to believe that all those children showing up at our southern border just happen to make that near impossible journey all on their own”.
“We don’t believe that our president is a Christian”.
“We can’t believe our government squawks about so many living in so-called poverty when the vast majority of such poor people have cellphones and every imaginable luxury known to man”.

As it turns out, the Reagan image is wrong.
The Republicans want ‘their’ Country back – the ‘good old days’.
LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS – ‘Joy Dunn’ :
“I got a letter saying my vote wasn’t counted because I didn’t have ID. But I’ve been voting in this state since 1954 and I never had to have ID,” she told ThinkProgress. “I didn’t know I was supposed to send in an ID this time. Nobody told me.”
‘Dunn, who just turned 79, has several forms of valid ID, but says she was never notified that she had to include a copy of it with her absentee ballot’.
‘Arkansas is one of a tiny handful of state to require copies of ID from absentee voters, and the only state in the nation to make those over age 65 do’.
“I had to depend on somebody to go do it for me and that’s a hardship on me,” she said. “And most people don’t even have that kind of help! I think it’s unfair for a lot of us older people.”
‘She said this hardship reminded her of the very first time she cast a ballot, in Little Rock in 1954′.
‘She was forced to pay a $2 poll tax, which she said was “not much more” than people made working a full day’s shift. “It was a little white slip, looked like a rent receipt,” she said. “You had to have that slip to vote.”
