The Curmudgeon Emeritus over at the blog Eternity Road takes the wind out of the sails of some of the Republicans out there with his post Wishful Thinking Department: A Bloodless Revolution. The Curmudgeon throws some cold water on the faces of some who seem all too ebullient, but he is just stating the realities surrounding the November 2 elections. The elections are anything but a slam-dunk. ACORN is still out there, under whatever name they are going by today, and they are doing what they have already done. In one case, in Houston, TEA partiers had to ferret out voter registration fraud themselves. When they did that, and the data was turned over to the DA, the voting machines in Houston were burned. Think there might be a connection? In the case of the Houston fraud, the SEIU had it's fingerprints on the act, but SEIU and ACORN in many cases shared offices. Meanwhile, in New York New Mexico, and Nevada, overseas military absentee ballots were not mailed out in time, and so these votes may not count. It is appalling that our men and women fighting on the front lines may be disenfranchised because one party fears they may vote for the other guy.
Yesterday, driving back from Washington, NC (the transmitter site of the Voice of America), I heard on the news that Christine O'Donnell was now only 11 points behind the bearded Marxist. She had apparently beaten him in a debate, and had cut his lead in half. I was shocked. I would have thought it was a no brainer. Here we have a common sense Christian woman, who has stated that she will read and make a determination of the Constitutionality of every piece of legislation she votes on. She is for lower taxes and less spending. Against her is the bearded Marxist. Which one best represents how you feel? Because in sending the bearded Marxist to the Senate, you are saying that he best represents the majority of voters in Delaware. Or put another way, if I want to know what Delawareans are like, I should just look to who they elected to represent them.
Go and read the Curmudgeon's piece and ponder. We need to redouble our efforts to get these TEA party candidates elected. Our Republic is rapidly disappearing down the hole, unless we act now.
Update: From Theo Sparks we the video featuring the bearded Marxist as "The Taxman."
