Time to cast your vote

Posted: November 3, 2012 - 10:50am

There’s a big question on Tuesday’s general election ballot: who will be the next President of the United States?

The answer to that question is Mitt Romney.

The most important task for our next president will be to improve our failing economy. Romney is better suited to do that than Obama. Once the economy is back on track everything else will fall into place. Printing more money IS NOT the solution. Our country needs a president that understands the challenges facing our economy and has reasonable solutions to fix the problems.

Romney can do that.

Whether or not you agree, your vote Tuesday is important. In addition to the president, Peninsula voters will be casting ballots for the U.S. House of Representative as well as members of the Alaska Legislature. Also on the ballot, $453 million in transportation project bonds, a measure to convene a state constitutional convention, and a slate of judges up for retention.

Polls are open Tuesday, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Please vote.

YEA!

I am so ready for this to be over so we can figure out which way we are going in this Revengeful election that promises not much Hope for us from either Candidate.
But at least we won't have to listen to the continual lies.
One more Day, YEA!

Funny choice of words Norseman

As usual norseman you set traps to invoke people to react to your blatant lies about BO. So hows that steady hand dealing with Benghazi and the murder of 4 Americans and leaving them behind, just as this steady one also wants to do to all of AMERICA, EVEN PEOPLE LIKE YOU?
A true christian will never indorce islam as a gift from heaven as BO does, so are you really sure of your claims or are you just trying to stir the pot? As usual i would say that you don't have a clue as to who is who or who is what, not even yourself. The OBAMANATION as many call this presidency is only ment for DESOLATION OF AMERICA.
When a President tells Americans to vote for REVENGE AGAINST OTHER AMERICANS then he is not a leader that ALL AMERICANS can count on and actually reveals his true colors of being exactly what he claims not to be, a Divider of America and a Citizen of the World, not an American. HIS OWN WORDS, not mine.
Vote Republic for which we stand under God, Not Democracy for which we fall under BO.

500 High ranking Military indorce Romney

Today there is supposed to be an indorcement for Romney by 500 VERY High Ranking Military from all branches.
I als read where an Admiral in charge of the Persian fleet was promising Mutany if BO won.
Looks like they know that BO might leave them behind like Benghazi Heros were done, Very Smart on their part if only the rest of us AMERICANS, not Citizens of the World would do like wise.
Have a Happy Election Day and please vote.
Vote for America, not Revenge against other Voters.

O-47 Weapon of mass destruction

There is a new smart bullet out there called the O-47 and it is a Nation Killer. It's in every voters hand that goes into that booth and is willing to stick it in America's ribs to take whatever they want. It's named after the 47% of the people On the public dole and in honor of the candidate who mastered the use of this weapon of mass destruction. Trouble with it is it can only be fired from within the Nation. And it has smart bullet technology where it always hits the heart. It must have a silencer as I haven't heard it go off, just witnessed the devastation it does to the economy. So we have a candidate arming the masses with a self-feeding, auto loading, compensated barreled, silver bullet. It is guaranteed to blow the heart out of any Nation, where the majority use it during elections. I don't know how long a nation lives with out a heart, but it has to affect the quality of life after a fashion.
It's like Bungalo Bill the Voter, what can you kill with that thing Bill? Ohe really, why would you carry that into the booth Bill? I see, so you can take anything you want from America today and you are tired of hearing US complain about it so you are going to use your O-47! Don't ask me to understand!

#451 & 452

Thats what my wife and i were at the sports center and 20+ were in line to vote as we left shouting out a BIG Thanks to the ladies that were working the books for votes.
It's almost over and no matter who wins BO or MR, come tomorrow some of us will be OK, while others will suffer and EVERYONE WILL BE GLAD IT'S OVER.
There has been over $1 Billion spent by each party and thats CRAZY if one considers the cost to continue on off the economic cliff or try and slow our nations going off that cliff.
Even though i know everythings gonna be ok, i am still excited about this days end as too which direction America will go.
HANG ON FOLKS THE RIDE IS ABOUT TO START GETTING EXCITING NO MATTER THE PARTY OF OUR DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA HERE AT 3:47pm.

So What changed?

Nothing changed and we are still in the same sinking boat.
Lazy leaches got their way and will get more free stuff, but for how long? Free will run out then what? Can ya say Roman Empire?
Congrates to those that think they won tonight. Actually none of us won and this will only hasten BO's driving us off that cliff.
Nothing changed other than over $2 Billion dollars being spent and the same power structure that we have had the last 4 yrs still remains, yet BO is now going to ramp up his Global citizenry campaign for the desolving of OUR Constitution which ius all that keeps us Free.

That so many voted to have a satanic leader re-elected brings utter disgust and shame to our Nation!

A nation of Obama destruction! I decided to give up , just like I gave up fishing the Kenai River! Let them destroy morality and honor! May gasoline prices soar to new heights and your right be conqured! I shall not give any charity to people who elected this [filtered word]! May suffering and unemployment starve the Obamanation into destruction....I will not help to donate to restore your hope....just as I abandon the Kenai river! What a bunch of idiots that we have cultured into a nation! It is time for the USA to learn a lesson from history....

The Divided States of

The Divided States of America. Half socialist, half capitalist
A house divided cannot stand, nor will America stand under the weight of this wasteful entitlement spending.

{ps what did you liberals win, you’re still on entitlements and those will be evaporated soon, like smoke from your dope.
Gas, groceries, medical care and living expenses will be so high you’ll be at the poverty level in due time. Better buy some extra “hope n change’ t shirts you won't be able to afford anything better!}

Four more years of The President of the United States of America, this great nation humiliated, being on ‘clown’ shows.

Potus on Comedy Clown Crappola TV; while the main stream media sit silently in their cheer leader skirts on the sidelines drooling over their 'marxist missiah.' Where have the responsible Americans disappeared to? (oh yeah....buying more beansricebulletsguns) carry on lads.

Whether,or not you got your man for president.The bottom line is The PEOPLE of the United States.Voiced,and voted their choice.It was a free,and open election.The AMERICAN way.The Constitutional right guaranteed to us.So! I am only hoping that these next four years will have a BIPARTISAN twist.We have been having an OBSTRUCTION of government by the Republican side of the aisle.Their intent was to stagnate this country.Usurp OUR governments operation.So! It would appear as though President Obama.Was a do nothing president.Which would keep him from being reelected.Well! don't cry people.The plan did NOT work.The people of this country are truly NOT that stupid that they could not see through the Republicans ploy.So! from the bottom of my heart I wish for everyone to ENJOY the next 4 years.Maybe you too will learn the meaning of BIPARTISANSHIP.

mutiny

WOW 500 high ranking officers huh?If an Admiral openly stated he would mutiny.HE would be RETIRED on the spot.This may occur in a banana republic,but not in the USA.This is either an exaggeration,or something fabricated by another obstructionist stirring up the muck.So! Ask a veteran if this would truly happen.A military person follows the orders of their COMMANDER in CHIEF.WOW You have been misinformed,or you are having a very narrow look through a tunnel,or you suffer from a false hope.I am not a follower of half truths.I also do not care for anyone.Who would advocate sedition.Also the billion dollars spent on this election was total for both parties,not a billion spent by each candidate.Another half truth.You need to get more logical,and not let your emotions cloud your thoughts.

Bias

The Clarions editorial has displayed once again the bias of this newspaper.What you are practicing is NOT journalism.A journalists job is to get to the TRUTH,and truth only.Your personal opinion is not an option.Your personal opinions only cloud the truth.Your Mitt Romney prediction was wrong. It was though wishful thinking.Something that has no place in JOURNALISM.I have wondered in the past about your paper.Do your reporters write what their boss wants under the fear of termination?If so this is not a free press.You need to be ashamed of yourselves.

The American people have

The American people have spoken and have chosen their leader for the next four years.
This is a difficult time in our history and we all need to work together to overcome the obstacles that lie ahead.

We need teamwork and working together to solve problems. The past way of checkmates, division, and absolute refusal to work together must lay behind us.

President Obama won, now let's put aside the hatred and anti American disrepect of the highest office in the land.
As our President stated, "this isn't a country of red states and blue states, this is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

The Thrill of Victory and now Reality.

So some of you think you won ah?
BREAKING NEWS
WE ALL LOSE, AS REALITY WILL NOW BEGIN TO SET IN.
Some times winners are actually losers and the winners drag every one down with them as is the case here as Life Style voters that want more FREE STUFF have now become the Norm for voting here in America and we will never be able to go back.
You wanted FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE TO BELIEVE IN, hang on it's almost completed it's transformation of a working thriving America into a welfare state.
A governmental supported have it your way nation that eventually fails in it's provision of Free stuff when every one stops working and signs up for Freedoms of Life Styles then the providers of taxes that paid for all that Free Stuff cease and that nation falls.
Just like history shows ALL nations that went down this road ended up as just a memory in history books and a restart must begin, but those nations have never risen back to World dominance again and actually are dependant still on others for their survival. Can ya say Iraq, Iran, Greece, Rome, Gr8 Britian, AMERICA and all of Europe the East, West, South or North?
Nations Rise and Nations Fall and 200 yrs is the Normal time span for their fall from Grace and we are 36 yrs past that 200 mark which History shows and is all ways right about Reality.

Wow

What a crazy world we live in. As much as we analyze like crazy, there's no predicting people.

Obama's the president, but an entire region outside of Anchorage elected to go with hardwired Anchorage politician Cathy Giessel who thinks rural Alaskans don't know how to manage money and there's no subsistence lifestyle.

Good luck, Kenai peninsula. You made your bed...

Radio Kenai's New 5-Point Plan!
Unpublished

#1. Wifhdraw ALL excess money from Federal Credit Union. Who can trust another 4 years of irresponsible spending and corruption?

#2. Upgrade Emergency Preparedness Operations to be ready for afhe financial collpase. Make no in unnecessary purchase, minimize watching liberal TV Chanel's or Hollywood stars who endorsed our most destructive president.

#3. Refuse to purchase items made in America a from Liberal States who voted for our insane president (goodbye Ford, goodye Chevy). Time for American Automakers to relearn downsizing and unemployment lines. In fact, change my attitude to purchase NO domestic products...it is obvious that the American Worker has not learned how bad things can get...

#4. Invest in Precious Metals and Guns. Sell all Stocks.

#5. Do not donate in any way to Non Pofits that finance States who are in crises (and voted for Obama). To the survivors of Sandy, tough shoot! Go talk to your new lleader, my support went to our soldiers fighting oversees against people who are like Obama!

Norseman, the rest of America

Norseman, the rest of America spoke but Alaskans said something different in their tiny whinging voice.
Look at the roster of Anchorage politicians now representing the entire state. We STILL have Don Young.

It's time to be our own little banana republic officially now.

Harry Reid said it best

Harry Reid said in responce to his Fellow Mormons promise of reaching across to Dems when Reid said this. "Romney lives in a Dream world, there will be no reaching across and working together after the election."
There you have it folks the speaker of the house will not work with the speaker of the senate and we are still right where we started only $2+ Billion dollars wasted for nothing when we all could have used some of that money to bail us out of this economic spiral downward that will only now escalate and become even faster due to NO COMPROMISE.
So tell me Norseman and others just exactly who, which party is Hard Headed, Tight Butted with Blinders on desiring self seeking ideals as we ALL GO FOREWARD OFF THAT CLIFF?
As i said before things will not change other than get worse and i will continuew to help ALL my neighbors, no matter their race, color or Politico-Religious offileation as i go FOREWARD into Reality, not fiction or wishful thinking.
The glass is half full, as well as half empty, if one would really look at it and it always has been in every area of life.
There is none more important than the other in this fight of life we all are involved in and we all have the same enemies fighting us and they are Hate & Greed, Lust, Pride and Murder, all are ment to destroy, not protect or improve life globally for anyone anywhere.

I agree with you Prodicus.

I agree with you Prodicus. When the supreme court ruled that corporations could spend any amount they wanted to any campaign, without disclosure, that gave the green light to big oil to purchase the legislatures needed to give them their tax breaks without having to bribe any individuals like Bill Allen did.

Cathy's campaign was bought and paid for these same outfits.
Peter Micchhee is a employee of the oil companies.
Our governor was an employee and is in bed with big oil.

We are fast becoming a state legislature filled with oil execs or employees.
We are fast becoming a resource owner state to a "BIG OIL OWNED" state.

DITO

How many times does 350,000 go into the $2.6 Billion spent by just BO & Mitt, not to mention all the other Billions spent by the other parties running for prez.?
While your doing the math how many times does 350,000 go into $700 Billion, the first bail out?
350,000 people in America could use that money to help bail out all of us.
It is just beyound belief the amount of money spent on all the elections that changed ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Get YOUR liberal teammates to

Get YOUR liberal teammates to run the country, feed yourselves, cloth yourselves, get the gas & oil out of the ground. You do it for yourself, for a BIG change. Make Acorn, black panthers, big unions, and your welfare slugs, Your teammates, WORK submitting to your directives.

Liberals have to demand that independents and republicans comply with their dictates and work for the liberals survival. They can’t provide for themselves, nor can any of you local libs without your free government entitlements.

We NonSocialistNonLiberals can’t work and save you, we are all ‘Crazy’ remember? You say we are all ‘mental.’ Sorry, but you’re on your own now. we are applying for free entitlements, you better figure a way to pay for OUR free entitlements. You’d better start WORKING for us.

entitlements

Medicare is NOT an entitlement.It is another endowment paid for from a persons payroll.You pay from your very first paycheck up to your retirement date.The same as Social Security .Entitlements are what the elected officials receive.Especially the ones in Washington.I will bet not one Republican would mention giving back any of their entitlements,but they will try to cut from the most needy.There are many folks on the peninsula.Who receive food stamps.The Republicans want to do away with those.Does anyone remember the WAR on POVERTY.That has been waging for many decades.The republicans again tried to stop that war.A war I wholeheartedly agree should be fought until it is won.Well today Speaker Beihner said there is only 2 ways to fix our countries problems.Which is very short sighted.Why can there not be numerous avenues for problem solving?This is what is called politics.Searching for a common ground to benefit the nation.Isn't it the reason we elected them?

a democracy cannot exist

'It’s the economy stupid.' old democrats knew that, new libs don't.
Gas prices will continue to rise, food cost will increase enormously.
Medical care will become diminished and expensive beyond the means of average Americans. And progressives will cheer & applaud. here's a fuller description of our future:

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”
― Alexis de Tocqueville
