Judgement Cometh

...and that right soon.

If you haven’t already, get out and vote!  Make it a priority!  Vote for freedom and prosperity!  Vote for conservative, Constitutional candidates!

…I had to get that little rant out.  I am especially glad I have done my part to kick out Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.  My vote for Pat Toomey for US Senator I give gladly!  On top of that I have given my vote to Tom Corbett for governor, and Todd Platts for Congressman.  Both Pat Toomey and Tom Corbett winning would be “pick-ups” for conservative Republicans.  With that said, here are a few humble predictions of mine for today.  We will see how right (or wrong!) I was by tomorrow.

  • Pat Toomey(R) will defeat Joe Sestak(D) by 5 points here in PA.
  • Next door, in Delaware, Chris Coons(D) will only defeat firebrand Christine O’Donnell(R) by 6 points
  • Far out west in Nevada, Harry Reid will be defeated by Sharon Angle, but probably by less that we would hope–around 3 points.
  • Colorado, I think, will not be all that close.  Ken Buck(R) will win over Michael Bennet(D) by 6 points.
  • In California, this may be closer than expected, but I still thing ol’ Barbara Boxer(D) will hang on by 2 points against former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina(R).  If she is losing by tomorrow in a narrow race, expect plenty of lawsuits.
  • Washington is a liberal state.  However Dino Rossi(R), will very narrowly win this after the week is over against Patty Murray(D).  There may be plenty of recounts here…
  • Also a place worth watching closely is Illinois.  I think that Mark Kirk(R) will get more real votes than Alexi Giannoulias(D).  However, this is the state where “Crook” County is found.  Complicating the situation, Chicago swindling and politics may just pull this one off for the Democrats.  I sure hope its a wide enough margin here for Mr. Kirk(R), so Chicago and Mayor Daley won’t be able to make votes come out of thin air, and rig this election.
  • The there’s West Virginia.  Unfortunately though, the Democrats have found their winning strategy here in Joe Manchin(D).  Mr. Manchin has come out as a conservative, “Palin-ite”, Democrat.  Even just yesterday, he said that he and Palin were “friends.” John Raese(R) has a tough one to pull off here.  I think that Manchin(D) will win by five points here, possibly more.

As a summary to all of that, I expect the senate to be broken up as 51 Democrats and 49 Republicans.  Perhaps this isn’t all that optimistic, but I think I am being pretty conservative in my estimates.  In the House of Representatives, though, GOP gains will be HUGE.  I honestly think that 65 seats is probable, possibly more.

Now, the Democrats are going to make this their victory somehow.  They will probably make anything less than a full Senate takeover as a GOP loss, and anything less than 60 seats as a victory for them too.  Just know, if anyone makes either one of those two points, just say that a turnover in this proportion has not happened since the Great Depression.

Oh, and don’t forget to vote!

Monday Morning Randomness

Happy Monday to all of our readers! This is going to be one of the most random posts I have written, but I have quite a bit on my mind.

First of all, there was the historic vote on Obamacare last night. I admit, I can be a bit of a political junkie when I really want to. After church yesterday morning, I tuned in to cspan.org to watch some of the political debates concerning the rules, bills, etc.  The whole process really amazes me.  One thing that I noticed was the utter shamelessness of the Democratic Party.  Not concerning the details of the bill, most of which I completely disagree with, the arrogance saddened me.  The Democrats all seek to tug on heartstrings of the “underprivileged,” a tactic taken right out of Karl Marx and Fredrich Engles’ play book.  After church, then a snack afterwards, I watched the rest of the debate, and the votes themselves up until 11:oopm or later.  I could say a good bit more, but I will say that I am looking forward to voting conservative in November, and voting out our flip-flopping Senator Arlen Spector.  There were also a few Republican congressman that impressed me, and if the future of conservative politicians is in them, I think they are in good hands.  The first is the House Minority Whip, Eric Cantor of Virginia.  He is eloquent, intelligent, and commanding.  The other is the Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.  I think he would be good presidential material sometime in the future, and I have heard others say similar.  Overall, though, I can’t wait to fire Nancy Pelosi from Speaker of the House in the next elections.

On a completely different note, our four-way election of a wall photograph has a winner!  The picture-elect is B–Turquoise Water and White Cliffs. When it will be inaugurated to our wall, I do not know.  I think I’ll place the order for it sometime at the beginning of next month, pending if the company has a good deal then.  We will post a picture of the picture when it is officially “in office.”

Also, we have just a few short days before we make our way back to the Midwest for a six day visit.  We are leaving early, early Wednesday morning, and plan on being there sometime in the early afternoon.  We are excited about being able to see our families and friends, as well as be able to enjoy some Chicago-style street food!  Well, the food is not that important, but George’s in Chesterton sure does sound delicious right about now!

And I cannot forget that the Michigan State Spartans made it past Maryland to advance to the Sweet Sixteen for the third year in a row.  It also looks like they have a bit of an easier path to the Final Four since Kansas was shocked by Northern Iowa.  MSU-Northern Iowa should be a good game this coming weekend…

The game winning shot against Maryland!
