Republicans MUST overcome their differences, and soon. The 2008 elections will be determined by two things, unity and turnout. Republicans, including conservatives, must match or exceed the Democrats in these two critical areas in the general election. Otherwise, the radical liberals and socialists, who control the Democrat Party, have promised to institute changes that stand a very good chance of destroying American culture and influence throughout the country and the free world.
Both leading candidates of the Democrat Party hate America and no amount of lying to get elected can possibly overcome the stupidity of what they are promising to do! The changes they promise to make will subjugate Americans to the control and influence of the same policies that, in time, have victimized people who live in countries with low living standards, poor health care and a weak national defense. Most of us know that dependency on government quickly turns citizens into victims. Dependency is very much to the liking of the socialist bureaucrat mindset because it allows them to direct the entire wealth of the nation through their sticky fingers. Of course, that gives the "elites" and the bureaucrats total power and control over everything. Corrupt liberal politicians have created this very situation in the big cities of the nation where the Democrat primary is the only meaningful election, the general election is a laughable farce and anyone who would have the guts to say they would cut back the free "handouts" couldn't get elected dog catcher! Think carefully about this because you know it's true. Then decide if you want to help to stop that from happening to all of America!
Republicans and conservatives need to understand that the U.S. will become a left wing socialist dominated country if the liberals gain control of both the Congress and the Presidency. Should that be allowed to happen, the Judicial branch of government could also fall into the hands of the liberals! The real prospect that this could happen is much more important than the differences that exist right now between various factions in the Republican Party!...Ed
Regular Contributor J.H. of Galveston sends this word about early primary voting in Texas:
http://www.texasmonthly.com/blogs/burkablog/2008/ 02/early-birds-ds-outvoting-rs-almost-3-to.php This (SEE ABOVE LINK) is a blog article by a staunch liberal Dem., Paul Burka. ...It gives info & insight into what's been happening so far with regard to the EARLY VOTING turnout in Texas. He describes incredible increases in numbers (he gives comparisons for both Republicans & Dems) voting in the Early Voting which he calls "a tsunami with no precedent." On the average, apparently doubled, tripled, up to seven times the normal for Republicans, and much higher for the Dems. attributed to the higher than usual interest in the Presidential campaigns.
He gets his data from the Secretary of State's Web site, which provides day-by-day election totals and an archive of early voting history in previous elections. The Texas SOS website pays close attention to the voter turnout for the top 15 counties. Wanted to call your attention to this apparent huge turnout for many Texas counties, if you hadn't heard much, if anything, in the media about the turnout numbers statewide.
Best Regards, J.H.
