"Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and show the whole world that a Freeman, contending for liberty on his own ground, is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth."
General Orders, Headquarters, New York (2 July 1776)
What I dont understand is how this election can be anybodys idea of fair. I understand there are still 14 states that havent even held their primaries yetthat means people in those states havent had a chance to vote yet-???How can the primary season be OVER???? How can this be fair-and since when did we start running an election this way? Doesnt anybody see a problem here??? I would think there would be enough intelligence in this country to see a HUGE problem here...we cant go on this way.
>>it is now important for us to work on every way possible to push Mr. Romney to the right
Agreed. Usually after nomination the candidates “move toward the center”. Romney may already BE there. But I will again repeat I’m voting for “change” in the White House this fall.
Are we truly a center-right country? Time to prove it.
How is it the republicans have enough sense to nominate Tom Smith, yet at the same time Romney?
Great news!! Congratulations, PA!!
They’ll be rockin’ on Bandstand
In Philadelphia, Pa.
Deep in the heart of Texas
And round the ‘Frisco Bay
How does a huge state like Calif., for example, wind up almost dead last in the lineup of primaries, when things
are pretty much decided anyway?
The idea is to string out the process and do it bit by bit.
Can’t we have just a few weeks of regional primaries instead
of making it from early Jan. till June? The media would hate it of course.
>>since when did we start running an election this way?
It’s been like this the past few times. I wonder if the NH primary, etc., used to maybe be in March or something and it just kept getting pushed earlier and earlier. Other states also wanted to be early. So next time the NH
primary may be before Christmas. And the last one is
around the summer solstice. Not right.
He just put an avowed gay activist on his staff. I don’t think they are listening as well as you do at this point.
Jim Thompson for President!
Accept no substitutes!
I’ll probably vote for Virgil Goode in the presidential slot, for my current representative and for Pete Hoekstra over Stabenow.
We have one more chance. If MaMittMitt gets in, we have to be sure we surround him with conservatives in the house and especially the senate.
The prez really doesn’t matter, it’s the people he surrounds himself with.
And THAT CAN BE CONTROLLED!
He CAN’T be allowed to surround himself with mittbots or romneyclones. The senate has to confirm his cabinet nominees, and if we ensure a majority of conservatives in the senate, mitt will get b***hslapped from day one.
There is still a chance. It will simply require more work.
How old are you? Presidential primaries have always been settled by April. I've lived in PA 42 years and have never voted in a presidential primary that mattered.
It's not new.
Fair? That's a different question.
viva La Resistance!
The Green Dragon Tavern will be stocking up on whale oil for the lamps and ale for the patriots.
Time to “pivot” and focus our energies on the Houses and Senate. Let’s win the Senate and strengthen the House.
