Attention Republicans and Independents: Are you just not into Mitt Romney? Are you disappointed that Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio or Chris Christie didn't run? Are you planning to sit on your ass and not vote come November because you didn't get your pick of candidates?
Well, whenever you feel like "sitting this one out" I want you to remember that morning when Nancy Pelosi carried that huge Phallic gavel from the House Chambers to the Whitehouse in celebration of a Democratically controlled Congress passing Obamacare. I want you to remember that Nancy and Harry Reid called any one who opposed Obamacare "thugs". I want you to look at the Office of Management and Budget's costs projections for Obamacare over the next 9 years ($10 trillion dollars added to our national debt). Seniors, I want you to remember that Obama stole $500 billion dollars that you paid into Medicare and gave it to Medicaid, for people who didn't pay into the system. I want you to remember when the Dems passed Obamacare without even reading what's in it. When questioned about the massive 2,300 page bill, Nancy Pelosi said "You'll have to pass it to find out what's in it!".
Still not convinced to get out and vote Republican? Well, I would then ask you to google this week's ABC report on John Murtha airport. It was not needed, serves only a dozen people a day but costs the taxpayers over a billion dollars and hundreds of thousands a year to keep it open. That was part of the Dems $787 billion dollar pork stimulus bill! Or how about those water parks in Chicago? How about the $15 million dollars that Pelosi allocated in the stimulus to establish a "rat preserve" in San Francisco?
How about Harry Reid's $6 billion dollar high speed rail project from California to Las Vegas? Google this week's report on that project! The train starts in Barstow in the middle of the desert and ends up in Vegas; they expect Angelinos will drive 150 miles to catch a train and ride for the last 150 miles, then grab a taxi before they can get to their hotel! The project is losing tens of millions of dollars and may never happen! Know how the project got approved? The rail operator donated $150,000 dollars to Reid's campaign! Speaking of Reid, google "Harry Reid's Illegal and Unethical Real Estate deal". He became a millionaire after going partners with some shady real estate people and then getting legislation approved to have the land re-zoned!

Harry Reid And The Culture Of CorruptionOnce again, we discover why the Democrats quietly dropped their "culture of corruption" theme for the upcoming midterms. The AP catches Harry Reid without a disclosure on real-estate deals that netted him $700,000 in profit:
Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.
In the process, Reid did not disclose to Congress an earlier sale in which he transferred his land to a company created by a friend and took a financial stake in that company, according to records and interviews.
The Nevada Democrat's deal was engineered by Jay Brown, a longtime friend and former casino lawyer whose name surfaced in a major political bribery trial this summer and in other prior organized crime investigations. He's never been charged with wrongdoing - except for a 1981 federal securities complaint that was settled out of court. ...
The deal began in 1998 when Reid bought undeveloped residential property on Las Vegas' booming outskirts for about $400,000. Reid bought one lot outright, and a second parcel jointly with Brown. One of the sellers was a developer who was benefiting from a government land swap that Reid supported. The seller never talked to Reid.
In 2001, Reid sold the land for the same price to a limited liability corporation created by Brown. The senator didn't disclose the sale on his annual public ethics report or tell Congress he had any stake in Brown's company. He continued to report to Congress that he personally owned the land.
After getting local officials to rezone the property for a shopping center, Brown's company sold the land in 2004 to other developers and Reid took $1.1 million of the proceeds, nearly tripling the senator's investment. Reid reported it to Congress as a personal land sale.
If you're not motivated to get out and vote yet consider that the Dems spent over a trillion dollars in various stimulus programs and bought themselves a one percent decline in the unemployment rate. The OMB calculated each "job" cost the taxpayer $450,000 dollars per job!
How about the "Anointed One", President Obama, who, when the Congressional Budget Committee told him the cost of Obamacare would exceed $10 trillion dollars, told Congressman Ryan to "fuck off, election have consequences. We won, so we do what we like, and we don't have to listen to a damn thing you say". When you go out and pull the lever to vote, try to remember Eric Holder's Justice Department and his first speech after being appointed: "White Americans are cowards because they refuse to see how bad Blacks have it...and won't accept 30 million "immigrants" who invaded from Mexico". This is the same Justice Department that threw that huge multi-million dollar department convention that paid $16 dollars for a muffin! After being embarrassed, did they learn anything from it? No! Just this week the GSA Chief was forced to resign for spending $850,000 dollars for a Vegas blowout that included $4.00 per one shrimp appetizers!
If you think the Treasury is being run well please explain how Timothy Geitner made a $200,000 dollar "boo-boo" on his taxes (in his favor) and still got selected to run our Treasury Department! Geitner blamed the tax fraud on his Turbotax program!
Two weeks ago our President, who promised to "bring us together" spouted off about white on black crime for the Zimmerman-Martin incident in Florida, before the investigation is complete, just as he castigated the White cops in Cambridge for affecting an arrest on his drunken Harvard pal. But last week a ninety year old woman was raped and beaten to death by a 19 year old Black thug and Obama said nothing at all about that! Nor did he grieve for 6-year old Aleiya Shell who was gunned down on her front porch on the south side of Chicago! Obama has done more to advance class warfare than anyone in this nation.
Folks, we know, from past election data, than less than 50 percent of Americans will go out and vote this November. If you want Obama and his cohorts for another four years, by all means, stay home. But if you want a chance to restore this nation to one of prosperity and values and individual responsibility, you ought to get off your ass and vote this tyrant out!
