Races an early test of Obama influence

WASHINGTON (AP) – In a very early test of President Barack Obama’s political influence, two states are choosing whether to continue Democratic rule while voters elsewhere elect a handful of congressmen and big-city mayors.

Elected just a year ago, the president has spent a considerable amount of time and energy trying to ensure that Democrats win governor’s races in Virginia and New Jersey and pick up a GOP-held congressional seat in upstate New York.

In doing so, Obama raised the stakes of a low-enthusiasm off-year election season – and risked political embarrassment if any lost.

All three could.

Races an early test of Obama influence

Today is an opportunity for Conservatives to send a message to Washington. We are coming back, we are angry and it’s ALL about to change.

The only thing we have on the Texas agenda right now is the 11 constitutional amendments we are voting on. I am NOT going to try and tell anyone how to vote, it’s their vote and their decision, but I will say this, recently I had a pretty good online fight with a former friend about this vote. Most of the amendments have a lot to do with property and imminent domain. My former friend made the BOLD statement that the only people that need to be allowed to vote on this issue should be HOME and PROPERTY owners.

Needless to say, I totally disagree with that opinion and left no misunderstanding regarding that disagreement.

The person that I had this argument with is NOT a U.S. citizen. He IS a legal resident, but isn’t a citizen and can’t vote in our elections. I told him that until HE got off of his lazy ass and became a U.S. citizen, he really didn’t have a dog in this fight and that his OPINION was just that, an opinion. One that carries NO weight.

There was a discussion on Facebook last night, one of my FB friends was encouraging everyone to get out and vote today. Well, it seems that the apathy I talk about so much surfaced when this statement was made:

Greg Dill
Nothing significant on the ballot.

I was shocked to say the VERY least. I had to respond, and I did so in the nicest way I could possibly do so when I said:

TexasFred
1. Voted the 2nd day of early voting.

2. Anyone that believes that there’s nothing significant on a ballot needs to get the hell OUT of the USA and go somewhere that LIFE itself is insignificant… That was the most incredibly STOOPID thing I have ever seen on FB…

As I said, right now we have constitutional amendments on our STATE ballot, Texas issues only, November 3rd Constitutional Amendment Election, but there are NO insignificant ballots. Only an enemy of this nation would make such a statement. Only a cretin intent on spreading hate, discontent and voter apathy would dare to make such a ridiculous statement. In MY opinion, said cretin needs the crap slapped out of him as he’s sent to Cuba for a few years. Let’s see how insignificant our ballots are after that.

There are NO wasted votes

There are NO wasted votes

But there are MOONBATS, on ALL sides of this presidential race, ALL sides. I am probably going to piss some folks off with this post, but you know what? I really don’t give a DAMN, this blog is a HOBBY, it doesn’t pay the bills, as a matter of fact it costs ME money, and here on TexasFred’s, MY opinion is the one that counts. You like what I have to say?? Great, I truly appreciate my readers and have no problem with disagreement, reasonable, sane disagreement, not the name calling BS that the banned libbers like to engage you with. But, if ya don’t like it here, leave. I don’t want to cause anyone to feel uncomfortable. How simple can it be?

This rant was inspired by a post HERE and the quoted post below.

If you’re a Conservative and you didn’t vote for McCain/Palin and, perhaps, voted for another lesser candidate that more – ahem – aligned with your philosophy, then you’ll get your wish: Barack HUSSEIN Obama. Because a vote for a candidate other than McCain/Palin = a vote for Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

Simple as that.

You vote your “conscience”? Equals Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

You stay away from the polls because you’re making a “statement”? Equals Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

So I would throw this out for those who “voted their conscience” or wanted to “make a personal statement” by voting for anyone OTHER than the McCain/Palin ticket:

You’d best consume a large cup of “shut the hell up” when the Obamessiah Reigns Supreme come November 4th.

Because, quite frankly, you pissed away your right to complain by voting for a complete electoral LOSER such as Bob Barr or Mickey Mouse or ANYONE other than McCain/Palin.

If they lose, I don’t want to hear or read a PEEP out of you, you destroyer.

Post can be found HERE

The above quoted post is the biggest crock of BULL SHIT I have ever seen, 100% pure BULL SHIT!! If you voted, you did your duty, no matter WHO you voted for.

If you DON’T vote, then you have no right to gripe, but to make ANY attempt at forcing, by ANY means, coercing a person to vote for a candidate in this manner is wrong, on MANY levels. To denigrate a voter by using this lame BULL SHIT excuse of *A vote for anyone other than McLame* is pure propaganda. The last time I checked, we are still the land of the free, at least for now, and as such, I am free to vote for the candidate that I feel best represents me and MY beliefs.

We have freedom of choice in this nation, at least for now, and a vote for ANY viable candidate is an exercise in freedom of choice, to demand otherwise, to denigrate a person for exercising that freedom of choice, is bordering on communistic tyranny!

A vote for Mickey Mouse IS a wasted vote, on that I DO agree, a vote for any person NOT on the ballot IS a wasted vote, but this is an election, and EVERY vote counts, no matter who it’s cast for. I have worked very hard AGAINST Obama, no one can deny that, but I lost all respect for McLame when he turned the final page by voting FOR the bail out! That, for me, was the final straw.

I wasted my vote?? I gave Obama a vote because I voted for Bob Barr? I wasted my vote because I voted my conscience? Go screw yourself!! I was true to MY beliefs, not those of some asshole that would attempt to BULLY a person or scare a person into voting THEIR way. I will NOT bow to peer pressure, or any other pressure, I have a few people that I need to make happy, they are blood family, and my peers are not on the list!

On Nov 5th, when the numbers come in, IF Obama wins with better numbers than McLame and Barr put together, I am afraid I am going to be in a “You can ALL kiss my ass” mood. And to be really honest with you, I am damn near there now!!

I did NOT stay home, I did NOT vote for Obama, if you find that VULGAR, ask yourself WHY I have that “Kiss my ass” attitude. Opinions are like assholes so they say, we ALL have one, and they ALL stink… The post quoted above is a case in point!!

And if this post makes you hate me, if this post makes you NEVER want to read here again, oh well, adios, you will NOT be missed…
