On Tuesday, voters should rule the day

Posted: September 28, 2012 - 5:29pm  |  Updated: October 1, 2012 - 8:18am

While many voters are passionate about politics at the national and state levels, many might not realize how great of an impact local and municipal government and politics have on our day-to-day lives.

This is evident in voting statistics — presidential elections compared to local elections are like high school football bleachers compared to National Football League stadiums.

On Tuesday, however, we have a chance to fill those seats. On Tuesday the ballot box will open and each and every voter will have the chance to shape local government on an immediate level. On Tuesday, the fate of many borough and city issues are up for grabs.

If history is any indicator, less than 20 percent of registered voters will go to the ballot box. Does that mean less than only one out of every five people in the area cares about what goes on?

We doubt it. Maybe those voters who stay home on election day aren’t aware that the folks they aren’t voting on are in charge of many contentious local issues — the anadromous streams habitat ordinance, property taxes, the Kenai dipnet fishery, growth and expansion of Soldotna, education on across the Peninsula — just to name a few.

They say if you don’t vote, you can’t complain. We’d agree.

Many of these local officials are at the front lines of government — when you have an issue, want to make a change, or want to advance a cause, these are the people you’ll see first. These folks will help shape and guide the education our children receive. These are also the people that will represent our interests at the state level, and that means roads, capital projects and a number of other things we don’t think about until we need them.

If you already planned to head to the ballot box and don’t need any convincing, we’d take this chance to nudge you one step further and do a last few minutes of research on the candidates. Voting is a privilege, but being an educated voter makes you a community asset.

Also, ask your co-workers if they need a ride to the ballot box, encourage your family to register to vote and thank others you see with an “I Voted Today” sticker such as yourself.

Here’s where you can go vote:

Central — Soldotna Sports Center

Funny River 1 — Funny River Community Center

Funny River 2 — KPB Assembly Chambers

K-Beach — Kalifornsky Beach Fire Station

Kasilof — Kasilof Fire Station

Kenai No. 1 — Kenai Mall (Old Carrs Mall)

Kenai No. 2 — Challenger Learning Center

Kenai No. 3 — Kenai Senior Center

Mackey Lake — KPB Assembly Chambers

Nikiski — Nikiski Senior Center

Ninilchik — Ninilchik Senior Center

Salamatof — Nikiski Fire Hall No. 1

Soldotna — Soldotna City Hall

Sterling 1 — CES Sterling Fire Station

Sterling 2 — Sterling Baptist Church

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Here are the candidates, one last time:

Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly —

Kalifornsky, District 1, three-year term:

■ Kelly Wolf

■ Michael Winegarden

Kenai, District 2, two-year term:

■ Christine Hutchison

■ Hal Smalley

East Peninsula, District 6, three-year term:

■ Sue McClure

South Peninsula, District 9, three-year term:

■ Mako Haggerty

■ Jesse Clutts

Kenai Peninsula Borough School Board of Education:

Kenai, District 2, three-year term

■ Tim Navarre

Sterling/Funny River, District 5, three-year term

■ Marty Anderson

Kenai City Council, two seats, three-year term

■ Robert Molloy

■ Ryan Marquis

■ James Rowell

Soldotna City Council:

Seat A, three-year term

■ John Czarnezki

Seat C, three-year term

■ Dale Bagley

Seat E, one-year term

■ Nancy Eoff

SPW Please read

SPW please listen to my words carefully i ask one more time.

I DO NOT CARE WHO WINS! AND OUR ALASKA VOTES WILL MATTER NOT!

If Obama wins, my life and eternity are still dependant on Gods promises and nothing BO can do will ever change my destiny, and i will continue to work for God then as i do now.
If Romney wins, my life and eternity are still dependant on Gods promises and nothing Mitt can do will ever change my destiny, and i will continue to work for God then as i do now.
I don't care which man rules America and tries to set up their Utopia on earth and neither does God in relation to His eternal plans being fullfilled. Obama nor Romney or any other man is going to stop what God has said will come to pass for his Kingdom which will totally destroy all of mans kingdoms at just the right time.

MY Hope is on Jesus Christ and his promises of a True Hope and Fundamental Change to believe in for eternity and as i go FOREWARD no one can change that.
I don't depend on mankinds plans for my Happyness or Welfare so i DON'T REALLY CARE WHO WINS.

My opinion of these two candidates is that they are IDENTICAL with no real hope from either for Americas survival as a Nation without Gods protective hand over us any longer.

September 2001 under Bush was the First Major Harbinger of Gods warnings to turn back to Him, with no results after we were attacked at the Economic Systems Twin Towers for America and the World.
September 2008 under Obama was the Second Major Harbinger of Gods warnings to turn back to him, with no results after the 777 crash of our economic system again.
Just like the nation of Israel in 732 b.c. refused to listen to Gods warning to repent, America in 2001 has done exactly the very same things in spite of Gods long suffering and judgment continued until the total distruction was completed of Israel and for America as well.
WHY? Because just like Israels leaders did, so America's leaders have done like wise and those acts of defiance are found written in Isaiah 9:10.
"We will not repent even though the bricks have fallen, and the Sycamore tree has fallen. We will rebuild with polished stone where the bricks have fallen, and plant cedars where the Sycamore trees have fallen."
MEANING of each Nations words: We don't need you God, we will rebuild and be stronger than before and do it OUR WAY.
Gods harvesting the final crop of souls, please be one of them.
My God has foretold whats coming at the End of the Age of time, or Era of time and how Satans man will rule a One World Global Union with it's single Religiously Political Governments for 7 years to close out the Era or Age of time just prior to the NEW ERA or AGE to be ruled by the one they tried to replace, Jesus Christ is his name, Not Obama or Romney or any other name, but Christ alone.
I will not have a stroke or suffer loss in any form or fashion from Whomever wins in the slightest degree nor shall i shead a single tear for either candidate, but i do cry for my fellow mankind thats blinded to reality and the SIGNS of the times.

You and those like you SPW who have placed their entire existance on the False Hopes and Dreams of False Messiahs claiming to have the New Way Foreward shall all cry and weep and nash their teeth for eternity for voing for mans temperal plans, rather than Gods eternal plans.

Thanks for caring for my well being i think, and realize that i really do care for yours and ONLY WANT TO SEE YOU THERE, IN GODS KINGDOM COME.

Don't be Duped by smooth talk

After last night i must ask that people remember not to be duped by slick talkers and good debaters that only want to dupe you into believing their continual lies.
OOPS! Thats was what the master duper Obama asked Americans to do today after his dismal performance last night which primarily showed him looking down wishing his notes were his teleprompter continually telling him what to say next because he was being out Duped by the New Informed able to communicate without Teleprompter Duper Mitt.

This is GR8, the Super Duper warning people not to be Duped by Romney like they were by him when he ran for Prez. & even before then for congress.

SuperDuper califrajalistic exbealidocious, if you listen to Obama's words slow enough they really sound atrocious, "DON'T BE DUPED BY THE GR8 DEBATER," is what Obama said today.

My question is does he really think people are that stupid?
Answer: YES HE DO & DAT MEAN YOU!
Sorry for the switch to my southern roots there folks as it does happen time to time even if unintended as i did. It's kind of like BO did in 2002 and 2007 when speaking to Dupees at two differant conventions as he told them that they had been Duped by the Rich and the Government that didn't care about them in the slightest.
I wonder are those Duped ones better now or worse off now under this caring chosen one, or are they starting to realize they were DUPED by the SUPER DUPER DUPER?
Good night and sweet dreams of a wonderful life in Dupedville, USA.

I can tell by one of your comments, that you are probably a screaming Liberal like the rest of the idiot medias.

Your comment stating that Voting is a Privilege indicates your beliefs.

Might I take a moment to correct you (just like Romney had to correct the idiot [filtered word] obama so many times) that VOTING IS A RIGHT...NOT A PRIVILEGE!

So, before you lecture the people on voting, or trying to tell the voters it is a privilege and they should do this or that.

Read the Constitution and Amendments. Then take a moment to reflect why it is people such as yourself and obama who want to strip Americans of their rights.

I have a RIGHT to VOTE, not a PRIVILEGE. I CAN VOTE FOR WHOMEVER I DAMN CHOOSE AND I WILL VOTE THE MENTALITY OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND OBAMA (COMMUNIST) OUT OF OFFICE!

Wake up fellow Alaskans and be aware of people, such as the author, who tell you doing this or doing that is a privlege. Take for instance their stance on the 2nd amendment "The RIGHT to bear arms SHALL NOT be infringed". Now you can't have one if you are a felon, or commited a DV crime, or on probation or this type of gun, or in some states registration of a gun....

And we ALLOWED them to do it! They trampled on "shall NOT be infringed".

Now we have this idiot author saying voting is a privilege!

Stand your Ground. It is YOUR RIGHT!

To all you obama lovers out there:

I hope you were paying close attention to your president the other night at the debate! Since he had no teleprompters or media protection, you got a good dose of the absolute idiot we have sitting as a president!

What an embarrassment!

And all the jackassobama can come up with for a defense of his incompetence and stupidity is:

"Romney was lying"

What a idiot!

"obama better hope a kicked butt is covered in obamacare"

A Question for Steven Paul Wright

Are you kin to long time Slooooowdotna resident antramanur Curley Wright?
Just wondering as he has always had a very hard time listening to people and desired to have complete control of others in ALL matters of life even when they were not at work for him.
I DON'T CARE IF OBAMA DOES WIN, OR ROMNEY EITHER AS MY HOPE DOES NOT DEPEND ON THEM, GOT IT??

SPW can you get help there for hating Romney? Check it out just in case you need it come November. Plan ahead as stranger things have happened in reguard to Religiou Politics and the differant believers in mans plans and promises, which are always differant from God plans.

SPW Please don't be DUPED by the SUPER DUPER DUPER or ALL TIMES, messiah Obama his chosenness, AGAIN.
SPW Don't loose that # it's the ONLY one you want, and you'll feel better, if you don't.

SPW Empty Posts

SPW, your posts are for the most part empty and without meaning. You support a candidate, but give no reason for such support. Alternately, you offer no opinion on why the opposing candidate shouldn't earn our votes. You repeatedly (three on this thread alone) offer a number for a behavioral clinic with which you have obviously a past (or current) affiliation. In short, your attempts to provoke name slinging posts and slanderous accusations rather than true information hurts the political process more than it helps. We all tend to fly off the behavioral handle on these blogs, but normally, the posts of those I pay attention to have, at the very least, some basis for their tirades. I have been both ... the one posting the tirade and also the victim of a few. In several of those instances, I have deserved it for failure to check my own facts. On others, I have been the focal point of an uninformed blogger who has no facts and can only debate using the weak side of his brain to sling names to defend his/her position.

When asked about your position on a previous post, you fail to address it. It really makes no sense to post and repost the same empty meaningless posts except to see your monicker in type.

Finally, instead of seeing only one side of this election and discounting the other, try seeing both sides of the political campaign and making a fully informed decision based on the campaigns merit. Don't simply watch a debate and settle for what you see and hear. Check the facts from an independent researcher (several are on line) and form an informed decision so you can cast an informed vote on November 6 and be an asset to the process instead of simply an uninformed participant.

I would ask that you try using a little thought provoking reason and see if you elicit a more favorable response rather than just using the same old tired psycho babble on every post. It truly does give you the appearance of narrow minded ignorance in print.

As for myself, I have not honestly made a decision on my vote yet. But in light of things I see, things I know that have or have not materialized in the previous 42 months, what transpired in the 8 years prior to the Obama administration, and opinions garnered from both groups of supporters, I am well on my way to being one of an estimated 30% of the fully informed voters in the coming election.

VP Joe Biden campaigns for Romney

Did you see and hear what VP Joe Biden did today?
In support of Romney for the second time this week VP Biden said that it's TRUE. the President is going to allow thax breaks expire which is actually a $1.1 TAX INCREASE.
This declaration today with the one on Tuesday where Biden said that the Middle Class has been BURIED THE LAST 4 YEARS DUE TO TAXES.

Romney has decided to just hire Joey Biden as his spokes person and sit back and watch as the False Religion of Obama's falls down from Joey's huffing and puffing and blowing out continual TRUTHS ABOUT WHAT OBAMA IS DOING.

If i may i would like to say THREE, thats 3 words of thanks using Joe Bidens math, "PLEASE DON'T STOP TALKING."

Once again I DON'T CARE WHO WINS, BECAUSE OUR ALASKA VOTES WILL REALLY NOT MATTER, BUT IT IS FUN TO SHARE INFO THAT YOU CAN'T MAKE UP FOLKS.

Steven PW

I only know what you have told me here on this blog of who you are and where you live.
I was just wondering out loud as i try to figure you out concerning your unexplained worship of Obama, as well as your discust for others that differ from you in voting to the point of calling Americans NONAmericans, if they don't vote.
All this when we in Alaska shall have absolutely no affect on the election come November as the election will already have been decided when we get to vote, so one could actually argue whats the point.
Inspite of those facts i will vote for who i consider the best option for America while at the same time realizing that NEITHER ONE is going to stop the actions already in full swing for Americas future ALL in accord with Gods Plans and Purposes, not Obamas or Romneys Plans.
MY God is in Total control of my eternal future and nothing men can do will change those facts which my Hope depends on found in Jesus Christ alone.

Have a GR8 Day SPW and realize that i don't hate you, i only am trying to understand your thinking and Beliefs in Obama, and yet your total discust for God and those that Believe in him. The only way we can know anyone is by what they say and do and Believe daily as life goes on, which falls under Gods claims of knowing them by their fruits/actions.

Presidential election coming soon, Faced with the question, who to vote for? What Would Aristotle Do?

He’d think for himself. Get the facts before you decide to believe and act. Think for yourself! Stay tuned in! No one has the responsibility to answer your questions or solve the riddles that boggle your mind, but you.

At some point, you realize that even though information is being thrown at you, it is up to you to interpret what you hear, to make your own opinions, and to do something about it.

This isn't an us vs them. We are ALL Americans.The hatred that spews out of some pieholes regarding our president is disgusting.
There are some on here that obviously do need to seek some mental health therapy.

Try to remember that just because someone votes for someone other than you do does not mean they are an enemy. They are your family members, neighbors, co workers, and friends. When I served our country in the U S Army, I defended ALL Americans regardless of political affilation or religion. Learn what citizenship is really about. It isn't hate filled rheteroic.

""Sick and disgusting. ALL of the onlookers who stood by and did NOTHING are just as guilty.
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke)""

So you don’t think this is applied to speech about our government? everyone is supposed to only OBEY your rules.

When one stands by and does NOTHING when they see their government destroyed, liberty diminished, paychecks stolen, THAT’S different. Bull feathers. Talking out of both sides of your progressive piehole.

You are warning people to shut up about government.

It's a PreElection HEALING Miracle for Messiah

What a Time for Miracles and the 1 month away from election day the jobs report came out and a Healing has been done by the messiah.
When Obama took office the unemployeement was at 7.8% and has been much higher the entire Last term of Obama's, that is until today when the Miracle happened and it is now 7.8%, who would have thunk it?? But when your the messiah things like this happen due to Cooked Books and New Math methods for adding & subtracting, the simplest of math calculations.
The report was a Blessing for Obama with the HIGHEST rate of employeement in 29, thats 29 years, with supposedly 867,000 new jobs added in September alone.
All praise to his messiahship for the things he has done in saving OUR nation from total collapse and bringing forth this PreElection Miracle of jobs.
Inspite of ALL FACTS showing that this cannot be, could never happen as claimed and must be a total fabrication, lie and manipulation of numbers, IT HAS INDEED HAPPENED!
Inspite of the empty chair for Obama at the debate Wednesday, Obama is back on the Throne as savior, messiah and only hope for America and the World as well as he performs this Mathamatic Miracle producing jobs out of nothing all just in time for scoring votes from early voters too.

This Miracle just makes you want to cast aside all OTHER Hopes and join the Millions of DUPED Believers for this False messiah, savior of none, now, nor ever does it not?
NOT, IS THE KEY WORD!
This Miracle brings to mind what Jesus said about false messiahs coming and performing miracles to decieve many and lead them astray in the Last Days, as in NOW.

Glad to see your thinking like me there Norseman and keep up the Good Neighbor work.
No really Norseman, i'm glad to see your changing speach towards others that differ from you in opinion.
I agree the warning signs all point to bad times coming no matter who wins the election that we will have absolutely no say in who wins due to our late vote time, so we need to start understanding that we must all work together as AmericanAlaskans as we fight for survival as a Free people.

alter or to abolish it

'That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--'

(The Declaration of Independence words)

Do you think they accomplish this by hiding at home and not speaking up, so as not to upset someone like you? Everyone has the RIGHT & DUTY to speak up.

PS: surprise -- this IS a newspaper you are writing in.

Many years ago I remember

Many years ago I remember when I was 18 and first able to vote. Even though there was heated elections, for the most part, people were civil to each other. After an election, the people would support their country by uniting together.

It was the most prosperous era in our history. Politicans worked together through compromise and we got things done.

What I see now is a distinct divide in this country that is an us vs them, blue vs red mentality. Even the Majority leader said the first week Obama was president that he would do everything in his power to make him a one term president.
What do you think that does to us? That type of thinking causes gridlock and an adversarial situation.

As a result, we have had a "Do nothing" congress. The worst since the forming of our country. If this keeps up, we all will lose. United we stand, divided we fall.
This doesn't mean you have to love or even like anyone. It just means that we as a country need to work together if we ever expect to move forward.
Hate filled programs like micheal savage, rush limbaugh, bill mayer, and others only fuel the divide that is widening.

Bringing forth the problems of our country along with solutions will move us forward. Not hate filled rhetroic thrown at your family, neighbors, and friends just because you don't like someone. Save that for the terrorists.

Some quotes to ponder

"If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power."

DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, speech, Mar. 6, 1956

"I was no party man myself, and the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them."

GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Thomas Jefferson, Jul. 6, 1796

"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution."

JOHN ADAMS, letter to Jonathan Jackson, Oct. 2, 1789

"Party leads to vicious, corrupt and unprofitable legislation, for the sole purpose of defeating party."

JAMES FENIMORE COOPER

"Much indeed to be regretted, party disputes are now carried to such a length, and truth is so enveloped in mist and false representation, that it is extremely difficult to know through what channel to seek it. This difficulty to one, who is of no party, and whose sole wish is to pursue with undeviating steps a path which would lead this country to respectability, wealth, and happiness, is exceedingly to be lamented. But such, for wise purposes, it is presumed, is the turbulence of human passions in party disputes, when victory more than truth is the palm contended for."

GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Timothy Pickering, Jul. 27, 1795

"Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right."

H.L. MENCKEN

Very Good Norseman & SVP

Norseman i must say that i am thrilled with your sudden change of heart towards other AMERICANS and realize that devotion to PARTY LINES is ment to Divide and conquer, not Unite People for the Good of society as a Whole.
As i said many times i have black blood in my veins and i'm not usually prejudice other than towards others that project their race as the best one or project racism against others while they themselves are Racists. Racists come in ALL COLORS and Usually are more Racist against their own Race, but thats now OK if it's your race thats being downgraded.
IT'S NOT OK!
From DAY 1 when Prez. Obama almost got his swearing in correct (but had a redo the next day) as i watched Black people all across America ON MANY DIFFERANT NEWS STATIONS saying things like "we are sick of all the white lies and Our Black Prez. is a Mother F#@&%n Nword and we ain't gonna take it any more," to blacks saying "show us da money and we don'ts gots ta work no mo cause we gots a Black Prez now."
I said that this Prez. will cause America to have another Revolution or Civil war as a GR8 Divider, not Uniter of Americans by working towards his DREAM.
OH! LOOK! I may be a prophet and don't know it, as thats exactly what has happened and we are just starting to see the End Game of Divide and Conquer for America with this chosen one deemed as the GR8 Black Hope, WHICH has nonstop moved America and in fact ALL the world towards total economic collapse with his supposed Sharing Equally Plan which has helped NO ONE, BLACK OR WHITE other than increase OUR National debt to a point of we will never recover from what he has done and remain a FREE SOVERIGN NATION.
This chosen one pretends to be Black WHEN AROUND BLACKS OR WANTING BLACK SUPPORT, all for the purpose of deception only and has in fact hurt Blacks more than any other Prez. in history which can be seen by the rise in poverty and unemployeement of Blacks nation wide at a 14.8% rate which is probably much higher as is the 7.8% now claimed by the White Houses jobs report.
Obama's nationality is White 50%, Arab 43% and Black 7%, which simple math shows that he is a White Arab Black man, not a Black man or our first Black prez. but in fact OUR First White Arab Prez. pretending to be Black in order to decieve. Genology search is a wonderful thing as to who is who in spite of who the pretend to be, thats why TRUE History is hidden in many areas as it always reveals the TRUTH.

Thanks for all the Historic words showing us that OUR Forefathers knew much more of Religious Politics and it's desire to control people and that it must be fought against daily or we would fall back into that from which our founders escaped in Europe with it's oppresive Religious Governments of ALL People.

We have Failed to listen to OUR Forefathers warnings and we can see the SIGNS of exactly what they warned us to fight against now on the verge of total collapse of OUR HISTORIC HOPES AND CHANGE TO BELIEVE IN, NOW BEING REPLACED WITH THEIR NEW HOPES AND FUNDAMENTAL CHANGES TO BELIEVE IN, ALL MENT TO LEAD US IN ANOTHER DIRECTION AWAY FROM OUR HISTORIC PAST.
We are in some major troubles if one would just take time to listen to what they are saying and doing with thier slight of hand blame games from BOTH Parties, when researched one can see they DIFFER NOT.

More Lies & Negative Propaganda

How can there be a civil debate when people keep spreading lies? Why does no one challenge these political falsehoods when they are endlessly repeated in "social media" circles?

When Obama was elected, the Majority Leader of the Democrat-controlled Senate was Democrat Harry Reid. The Majority Leader of the Democrat-controlled House was Democrat Steny Hoyer and the Speaker of the House was Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

Now which of these people do you claim is the one who stated that they would make Obama a one-term president?

And here's another falsehood that has been spread pretty deep over the last 4 years (and continues to be spread on this page today)... "those who oppose Obama are racists and haters". Flat out wrong. Those of us who are Right do not "hate" Obama. We just know that his leadership methods and ideas are completely wrong. Nearly everything that he does is incorrect. He had his turn and he failed. It is now time to put someone with some real management experience in the chair. It is no different than changing quarterbacks at half-time because you are losing the game.

JOAT – Youre the Cats Meow

JOAT – Youre the Cats Meow today for saying so much, with such PurrFect words. Bravo.

BHO “”He had his turn and he failed.””
Agreed. The AFFIRMATIVE ACTION president needs to sit on the bench with Jimmy (the peanut) Carter.

We are just going to have to listen in several directions at once. To the Left, to the middle, to the right and everything inbetween To get near the meat of these important issues.

7.8% unemployeement now a Good thing

Obama got a Miracle just before the election with the Jobs report, which seems to be in question by economist that know SIMPLE math.
The 7.8% unemployeement was the very same 7.8% under Bush when Obama took office and that was the worst since the GR8 Depression and things did not look like they would get better soon thanks to the Republicans.
Now almost 4 yrs L8R it,s back down and this is AGOOD THING?
Obama says for Americans to not be DUPED by Romneys slick talk and TRUE KNOWLEDGE OF FACTS AND NUMBERS PERTAINING TO REALITY AND SIMPLE MATH.

The GR8 SUPER DUPERDUPER of ALL TIMES is warning against BELIEVING TRUE NUMBERS OF MATH and his followers are falling all over them selves listening to him in spite of Facts.

DIVIDED WE WILL FALL, AND ARE FALLING JUST AS PLANNED.

Praise the LORD for VP Joey Biden now Talking the Truth and by doing so he is now working for the Romney camp and Republican Party and is spilling the beans of Obama and the Democrate Party plans to completely bury the Middle class in tax debt, while they help no one other than their rich supporters and Bankers. THE RICH ARE GETTING RICHER AND THE POOR ARE GETTING POORER.

People need to search other news sources than the Clarion or MSNBC and CNN, if they would they could learn more of who is telling lies to believe in.
Neither Party will rescue us from this Economic Morass into which we have sank and only satans man of the hour will BS the World into thinking he can & will. See Revelation 13;

In 1957 Sec. Gen. of NATO Paul Henry Spaak said this and was quoted by Dr Cathy Burns in her book called A One World Order is Coming.
"What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the Allegiance of the People, and to lift us out of this economic morass into which we are sinking... Send us such a man and be he god or devil, we will accept him."

THEY HAVE A DREAM. But their DREAM differs from Dr Martin L. Kings DREAM which was for Christ Jesus to rule in ALL COLORS of Peoples Hearts in understanding that as Paul the Apostle said "There is neither Jew nor Greek, Male or Female, slave or free, but we are all ONE in Christ Jesus." If Jesus has set us Free then we are Free indeed.
That was Dr Kings DREAM of FREEDOM FOR ALL IN CHRIST JESUS AND HIM ALONE.
This New DREAM is to be FREE of Christ Jesus and do it our way, instead of Gods way.
So who ya gonna believe in relationship to FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE AND HOPE TO BELIEVE IN? Obama, or Jesus?

ya gotta dance with them that brung ya

WATCHMAN on the WALL, outstanding oration
Your getting better pardner. Here’s my thought.

When one says to a’ zombie chanter’ that you may want to move your position just a little. There’s a destroyer just over there with a loaded lethal weapon aimed at OUR heads. It really looks dangerous and they may seriously hurt us.

The chanter screams, “liar, liar.” “Your mental, your mental, your mental.” “Shut up, you Puke hypocrite!”

I’m NOT goinna stay & argue with him. I’m going to get out of the direct line of fire, gain cover, remove myself from the range of the destroyer, and try to figure out what the ‘F’ is goin on.

Cause sticks ‘n stones may hurt my bones, but words will never hurt me. (Well at least ma said so) The insults are wasteful and strangely directed at me (who has no money or power to hurt any lib), the sticks & stones of a corrupt and tyrannical government will hurt us both. And NO, I’m not going ‘’’FORWARD’’’ with you nimrods either.

That’s kinda how liberal chanters and faux folks pushing this “CAN’T WE ALL GET ALONG” slobber appear to me, where’s your horsesence. Kumbaya in your own houses. And maybe these undeclared voters you dislike just don’t jump to conclusions as fast as others, they can take their time if they darn well please.

Stay out of my house, and keep your hands out of my pockets.

Again, WATCHMAN ON THE WALL: OUTSTANDING ORATION. 10/6 12:07 (also, sorry you post got scrubbed)
