We're not here right now. But if you leave a message with your name, number and time you called...
The mid-term elections are underway. In Philadelphia, it’s Tuesday the 20th of May. Contrary to what some may have you believe, mid-term elections are just as important as, if not more than, the presidential elections.
In September of 2012 I asked if it was possible that the GOP threw the Presidential race to focus on local races instead. Why else would they give us Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney? Are they that out of touch?
Most of the damage is done during the midterm elections. I believe wholeheartedly that it’s because people think the President has sweeping power to do as he wishes. I don’t think people get how important these midterms are.
Take a look at what’s going on around the States and tell me if you feel the same.
So, to make it easier, here are two valuable resources that I always turn to in any political cycle,
and here in Pennsylvania…
The Committee of Seventy
Pay attention folks. There’s a lot to lose in local elections.
Now go out and VOTE!
For a while in 2008, I was stretching my food budget by purchasing some of my groceries at a 99¢ store.
Thankfully, I don’t need to do that anymore.
I know things haven’t returned to normal yet, but we were in deep doo doo.
I thought we all understood that it was going to take more than four years to repair the damage. I’m a realist. I didn’t expect miracles.
I was under the impression that our elected officials would work together with the President to rebuild this great country.
How was I to know that some of them would oppose President Obama’s Healthcare Reform so vehemently, that they would hold our economic recovery hostage in order to defeat him? Was I really that naive?
Yet in spite of all this obstruction, America is rebuilding. In spite of an effort to destroy this President and everything he stands for, things are improving. It’s a painfully slow recovery, but it’s still a recovery.
Can you imagine how further along we would be, had John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, and other House Republicans worked with the President?
Remember that, when you Vote on November Sixth.
