If You Had to Pass a Test to Vote...

You Should Be Allowed to Vote
You got 15/15 questions correct.
Generally speaking, you're very well informed.

If you vote this election, you'll know exactly who (and what) you'll be voting for.
You're likely to have strong opinions, and you have the facts to back them up.
Should You Be Allowed to Vote?

Time to Bake the Cookies

It's that time of year again. We have friends coming over on 'Black Friday', and we will be baking cookies instead of dealing with insane crowds at the mall. Oh yeah - we let the kids decorate 'em. I am looking forward to it, even though I will be short on sleep.

It's snowing here - looks like about 2 inches built up on the deck railing. Love it. The fire is cracking in the fireplace in the kitchen, and the cats are curled up close to it with smiles on their little faces. (Yes - we have another cat. She somehow fell through the trap door into the basement and her mother never claimed her. She was 2 weeks old at the time, but is growing into a fine young lady.)

I will have to break my diet - just a wee bit. I've lost 21 pounds, so I'm almost at my goal weight!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday weekend!

Voter Turnout

Voter turnout was virtually the same as 2004 when looking at percentage of population. It was a decent turnout, but guess what? Republican turnout was lower than the last election, while Democrat turnout was higher.

It is my personal opinion that McCain's choice of Sarah Palin helped him to win more votes than he would have won with a less conservative choice. It is true that conservative Republicans were not happy with McCain - he's a RINO.

If a Republican candidate cannot get Republicans to the polling place, they will never win.

What was the strategy behind propelling McCain as our candidate? Did the RNC believe that a RINO would attract the center/left vote? I will admit that I thought it might work at first, but after hearing hundreds of conservatives voice their dissatisfaction with McCain I thought he was toast. Then he picked Sarah Palin as his VP. A true conservative, and an unabashed conservative, she attracted many of the voters that were feeling lackluster aboutMcCain.

It wasn't enough. The RNC, and the Republicans in Congress, need to heed the lessons that we learned in 2008. Hold fast to your conservative principles or your time in office will be short.

McCain was no gem, but he was a damn sight better than the extreme far leftist Obama.

Yea, Though I Walk Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death..

You didn't do it, did you?? You didn't get out there and vote for McCain like Grizzly Mama told you to, did you??

Now we're stuck. We're stuck with a frigging Marxist. Worse than Hillary could ever be. Damnation.

Tuesday is the Big Day

Troll will be working the polls - we like to get involved. Seeing as we were disenfranchised at the primay, we need to have a few more people keeping an eye on things at the polling place. (Our write-in votes were not counted in the primary..)

Get out there and vote!!!

P.S. Don't vote for the guy who has promised to bankrupt coal companies and tax you to kingdom come. (That would be Barack Hussein Obama.)

Go McCain-Palin!!!
