Will The Elections Really Get Us What We Want

Ok, here we are just a few days away from election day. The common consensus is that the Republicans will gain control of congress and a slim chance at the senate. If the GOP does regain control of the congress, what will it really mean. Nothing, unless we stay as active after the election as we have been during the run up to it. The problem is most people will think, "oh boy! we won!" and just think that the people that we elected will do what we elected them to do.
What will happen if we don't watch them closely, is that will get sucked into the Washington power play and forget what got them there. Like in the past, they will talk loud at first about what they are going to do, then give in to compromise and never accomplish what they were sent there for. Like in the past they will think if they don't go along with the opposition party that somehow people will think that they are obstructing the congress's work. They will waffle back and forth, say we really we wanted to do something, please if we just had more power we could do it right. They will continue to ask you to give them a second chance, just as  the democrats are doing right now.
So, remember just because if the GOP wins next week, doesn't mean the fight is over. We must continue to apply pressure to our elected officials to the results we want. We must not back off, we must not be mislead by slick talking politicians telling us that "we had to do it that way" when they shove the next big program down our throat, like Obama, Reid and Pelosi did with the Health Care Bill.
A lot of hard decisions lie ahead for the new congress and they must make the right choice for our future, our kids future and the freedom that this great country was founded on.
Keep your voices loud and demand from the congress that they listen to us this time.

More Obama Heath Care Revealed

Many of you have read the hidden details in the Obama Health care bill, when it starts happening in your life or someone you love, you wish had payed attention. The following is an excerpt from an email that I received that I thought was very telling. Try putting your self or your parent in this situation and see just how you would feel. Also, remember the President saying that the Health Care bill was endorsed by the AMA, read the facts.
Diagnosed with cancer last year.  See what his doctor is saying....
Wednesday, I was at the doctor whom I have been going to since we moved down here (he is the one who discovered my cancer).  I have to get a very expensive shot every 3 months ($3000) that is designed to keep the PSA down and help to prevent a recurrence of the cancer.  Has some uncomfortable side effects, and I was questioning the need to continue with it, which he assured me was necessary.  He then asked how old I was, and when I replied 70, he said that if this legislation goes through as intended by the powers that be, that I probably would not be able to get it next year, as that would be money better spent on someone else with greater longevity.  I would be referred to someone to "counsel" me.

I asked him why the AMA had recently endorsed the plan.  He replied that only about 15% of the nation's doctors were members of AMA, and most of them were not really on the front lines of doctor hood but in some other areas of medicine.  He said he was a member, but would not be after this membership year.
This man got part of his training in London, and practiced in Canada for 16 years before coming to the US, and he has no use for socialized medicine, regardless of how you wrap it, or what kind of bow to put on it.  He said that we have a shortfall of around 400,000 doctors at the present time, and many of today's doctors are of the baby boomer generation who are nearing retirement and/or will decide to hang it up rather than deal with the results this is sure to bring.
Scary, my friends.  The picture for our age group is not pretty in obama land.SENIOR DEATH WARRANTS:
In England no one over 59 can receive heart repairs or stents or bypass because it is not covered as being too expensive and not needed.
Obama wants to have a healthcare system just like Canada's and  England's.
I got this today and am sending it on. If Obama's plans in other areas don't scare you, this should. Please do not let Obama sign senior death warrants.

Everybody that is on this mailing list is either a senior citizen, is getting close or knows somebody that is.
Most of you know by now that the Senate version (at least) of the "stimulus" bill includes provisions for extensive rationing of health care for senior citizens. The author of this part of the bill, former senator and tax evader, Tom Daschle was credited today by Bloomberg with the following statement:
Bloomberg: Daschle says "health-care reform will not be pain free. Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them."

If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, just remember that our esteemed Senators and Congressmen have their own health care plan that is first dollar or very low co-pay which they are guaranteed for the remainder of their lives. Nor are they subject to this new law if it passes.
Please use the power of the Internet to get this message out.  Talk it up at the grassroots level.  We have an election coming up in less than a year.  And we have the ability to address and reverse the dangerous direction the Obama administration and its allies have begun and in the interim, we can make their lives miserable. Let's do this!
If you disagree, do nothing

The Tale of Two Women, Palin vs Michelle Obama

By, Alaskan Fisherman.

As posted in comments on Greta's article referencing the MOVEON ad about Sarah Palin.

The last 45 of my 66 years I’ve spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska. I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year.  Here's the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it.   It's not about persona, style, rhetoric, it's about doing things.   Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I'm about to mention here.

1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor's office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican's "Corrupt Bastards Club” (CBC) and sent them packing.  Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits.  The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are).  Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.

2.  Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here.  So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES."   Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, "don't let the door hit you in the stern on your way out."  They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich.  Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line.  Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.

3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as "pork."  She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the "when-hell-freezes-over” stack.  She let locals know that if we need something built, we'll pay  for it ourselves.  Maybe she figured she could use the money she  got from selling the previous governor's jet because it was extravagant.  Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor's  cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the  State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and  dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning - I imagine  - that she's packing heat herself).  I'm still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.

4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed  "gosh and golly" mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new  approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest  private construction project in the history of North America .  No one else could do it although they tried.  If that doesn't impress you, then you're trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.

5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson.  They made excuses the entire time why they couldn't start drilling.  In truth they were holding it like an investment.  No governor for 30 years could make them get started.  Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out.  They protested and threatened court action.   She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house.  Alaska won again.

6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025.  Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025.  We are already at 25%.  I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona.   Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, and look cool.  But that's just a cover-up.
 I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what
mine has done in two and a half years.  I won’t be holding my breath.

By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn't let her.  Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers.  And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda.  Without warning, it will spin around
and tear your face off.  Shoulda known better.

You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her.  I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers and bitter ex presidents' wives.

So "You go, Girl."  I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals.
I rest my case.   Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.  

If you've read this far  ......... now open your eyes..........

Note:  This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and "First Hairstylist" Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom  traveled aboard Air Force One to  Europe .
