Where was this video BEFORE the election?
The following are recommendations, based on an analysis of the issues and candidates from a conservative perspective. No matter how you vote on some of these issues or candidates, please mark and return your ballots as soon as you can – voter turnout is very important in this election. And, please consider canvassing your neighborhood to see if anyone would like some help with ballot items, or if elderly or shut-ins would like you to drop their ballot in the mail. Also, please forward this guide to your friends on email and facebook. Again, anything you can do to help increase voter turnout is very important in the next couple of weeks.
Initiative 1185 , concerning Tax and Fee Increases Imposed by State Government (requiring 2/3 vote)
Recommend voting FOR this measure. I-960 was approved in 2007, then in 2010 the legislature suspended it and raised taxes $6.7 billion. State Sen. Marilyn Chase was recorded in the 2010 race saying that “We don’t have a tax problem, we have a revenue problem.” The state constitution requires that the legislature create a balanced budget, and this measure requires legislators to make hard choices, not simply raise taxes to balance their spending habits.

The teenagers who speak in this video belong to http://www.im2moro.org. These young people realize that if they don’t stand up and speak out for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness today, they will be living in a very different America tomorrow. H/T Ken.
H/T Frieda! Listen to Hugh Hewitt’s reasons.
I have some friends and relatives who are opposed to voter ID. I don’t understand. We need ID for everything in this day and age of identity theft. It seems like a no brainer to me. Read more »
Americans who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 share why they’re changing their vote in 2012 and will be casting their ballot for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in November. H/T Kathi.
From Ron Bemis:
Dear Friends and Supporters,
JUST 8 WEEKS AND COUNTING!
It’s now time to UPSET Washington D.C.! After our upset victory in the August Primary Election for the 7th CD, we now move forward to upset Jim McDermott on November 6th!
Big Money controls politics? Not this time. Our barely 2 month new campaign was outspent 15:1 by an historically high spending $250,000 ‘Big Money’ challenger (who campaigned 16 months) — yet we won against him … and we won with 2-1/2 times his vote total!
Newcomer trampled by a crowded field? Not this time. 6 challengers squared off in the primary to face the career incumbent in November– and our underreported new campaign won against all the challengers … and we won more votes than ALL of them combined! Read more »
From James Watkins, candidate for state auditor:
Friends – this is an unpleasant post to write.
As soon as State Representative Troy Kelley entered the race, my campaign started getting bizarre tips and allegations about Troy – things like misappropriation of funds, suspicious office fires, theft, and offshore bank accounts in Belize. The tips increased after he spent a record amount of ‘his’ own money to fool voters into thinking he was endorsed by Brian Sonntag for state auditor.
So, in a manner similar to traditional whistle-blower allegations, my team of volunteer researchers checked it out. Unfortunately, we uncovered a trove of lawsuits and court documents that detail an otherwise unbelievable story – a story that voters deserve to know.
But I’m not asking voters to take my word for it. Detailed case summaries, time-lines, and searchable PDF’s of the original documents are posted at www.FactCheckTroyKelley.com. Certified copies of case files can be obtained from the original courts of jurisdiction. Voters can read the summaries and documents and decide for themselves.
Brief summaries are below: Read more »
