On September 12th, 2009, Party Like It’s 1776 And Be Heard America!!

Bookmark and Share I am hearing little from the mainstream media about September 12th.

Yet this Saturday is far more than just the day after September 11th, the eight year anniversary of the terrorist attacks that left an indelible mark on American life and history. It is the day that thousands, make that at least tens AtEaof thousands of people from throughout America will march on Washington, D.C..

Although it is in many ways a protest, it is actually much more than that. It is a demonstration of the spirit that Americans had on the twelfth of September, 2001. A spirit of defiance and determination. A spirit that united our nation in a collective sense of goodwill and appreciation for all that we are and have.

It took the devastating assassinations of more than 3,000 Americans on four different airplanes and at three different locations within a matter of just a few early morning hours to make us appreciate what we have in America and what those lost souls had in America. In the wake of the events of 9/11, countless acts of heroism were revealed and continued to take place at ground zero where men and women dug through whatever rubble the intense heat allowed them to touch so that they could see if any lives could be saved. In the days to follow 9/11 Americans stood together, political parties worked as one government and even foreign governments stood with us. I will never forget when England played our national anthem and raised our flag to demonstrate their shared grief for us and their solidarity with us.

American flags were raised in every town square and store front and were hung on every front porch and balcony in our land. And when we saw those flags, we wept. We wept for those who died, those who were killed by the enemies of freedom and we wept for the loved ones they left behind who were trying to deal with the grief and shock of their losses.

We were also brought to anger when we saw those flags. We were angered by the enemies who jeopardized our freedom by using terror as a tool to restrict us through a fear for living our lives in usual fashion.

Those sentiments made us appreciate freedom. As airports were closed and commercial flight over America was brought to a halt for nearly a month, we realized how inconvenient restrictions on our freedom were.

It took the passing of the day and night of 9/11/01 to make us appreciate life, America and freedom as much as we should when dawn broke on September 12th, 2001.

Eight years later, on September 12th, 2009, despite what Democrat political operatives and liberal talking heads call them, hundreds of thousands of Americans throughout the nation will who don’t need another 9/11 to make them appreciate freedom, will be gathering to fight for it. These Americans are not just Republicans.  Most are not.  But many are Democrats and libertarians and most are independents.

And these Americans are not simply protesting President Barack Obama, they are protesting a problem that he has only become a part of. They will be protesting Republicans who voted to tax the air that we breathe in a Cap-and -Tax bill that Congress passed. They will be protesting Democrats who want the government to run healthcare and medical treatment. They will be protesting presidents who have spent more money than our nation has and the senators and congressmen who found it acceptable.

On September 12th, 2009 Americans who, disgusted by a government that is taking more freedoms away than they are protecting, will show our collective opposition to the way that things are going and the direction that our government and its politicians and bureaucrats are taking us in.

These people are Tea Party Patriots. They are common sense Americans who understand Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and its convincing arguments for independence. These are people who want to distribute their own wealth the way that they want. Not redistributed the way that bureaucrats want. They are people who have are fed up with going to the polls to vote down proposed school budgets, only to find their vote overridden by the governments that they elect into office.

Tea Party protestors are not disturbed people as the media would describe them. They are people disturbed and fed up by a government that has become less for the people and by the people and more against the people by the czars and unelected, unaccounted bureaucrats who wield more power than they any representative republic should allow.

The men and women who will assemble in Washington, D.C. on September 12th and in hundreds of locations through out America, understand Patrick Henry’s passionate plea “Give me Liberty or give me Death”. They also understand that if we allow our government to continue heading in the direction that it is going in, we will be killing liberty as we once knew it.

So for those of you who will mock these men and women, those of you who want to mischaracterize their faith in freedom as heartless or fascist-like, take yourself down a notch and ask yourself this. While you are sitting there watching us from your livingroom sofa and calling us radical extremists, what demonstration for, or stand for freedom have you taken lately? While you sit there and watch freedom get legislated away by the very same people who you elect and continue to support, ask yourself what kind of nation and world this would be were it not for Americas freedom fighters in 1776 and the years leading up to it?

There are currently more than a few hundred events throughout America scheduled for this Saturday, September 12th. These events are in addition to the national demonstration in D.C. on that same day. They are for those who could not join the national bus Caravan from California to D.C. and can not make it D.C. on their own. They are events in your own state and more are being scheduled as we speak.

Take a look at the list of those events below. If you are not already planning on being in D.C., join the Tea Party protest that is against big government and for personal and fiscal responsibility in your neighborhood and Party like its 1776!   Let your voice be heard.

Please join thousands of local organizers and grassroots Americans from across the country as we gather in our nation’s capital to deliver a message to the politicians: Enough!   We’ve had enough of the out of control spending, the bailouts, the growth of big government and the soaring deficits. And we reject the future tax increases to pay for all of this spending and debt down the road. We are gathering on 9-12-2009 to deliver our message in person that we’ve had enough!

This group does not accept monetary donations, is not affiliated with any political party and encourages all Americans, everywhere, who subscribe to the following principles to join us in promoting change to current government policy:
1. We uphold and adhere to the Constitution of the United States of America; 2. We believe in limited government;
3. We believe in individual rights; 4. We believe in balanced budgets for all levels of government;
5. We believe in fiscal responsibility and honest accountability of our tax dollars in the hands of local, state and
federal government officials;  6. We believe in taxation legislation and policies that promote individual freedom and prosperity as well as business growth and productivity;  7. We believe in instituting term limits for members of Congress; and  8. We believe in border control, prohibiting illegal immigration due to the costs associated with legal representation, education and health care that are passed on to individual American citizens in the form of excess taxation. The Amarillo Tea Party supporters believe that to accomplish the principles above, we must educate, communicate and unite with likeminded citizens locally and throughout the state and country to select candidates for elected office who adopt and incorporate the above principles.

    Rally at the Tree in Cedar Rapids on Saturday, 9/12 at 12 noon, rain or shine.

    A march on Washington is scheduled for September 12th (see http://www.the912project.com/ for details).

    If you can make it to DC for the march, by all means, GO. But if you can’t take a couple days off to go to DC, please join us here in Cedar Rapids instead. In the spirit of the nationwide Tea Party grass roots movement and the 9/12, there will be a rally at the Cedar Rapids Tree downtown on the river (the site of the two previous Tea Parties) to encourage grass roots resistance to the many recent encroachments on our freedom.  Those who are so inclined may take the podium (we have a PA system now) to say a few words about the issues that most bother you. Please Contact me by email if you are interested in speaking so I can get a list together , you will need to keep your speeches under 2 minutes and on topic !!!.   Some of the big issues we are concerned with are defeating Obama Care, defeating Cap and Trade (the environmental bill), plans to suppress free speech by silencing talk radio, future stimulus bills, and any measure that promises to usher in a new era of confiscatory taxes and infringement on our freedoms. We are very concerned about the march toward socialism and what we can do to stop it at the local, state and national levels.  This get together is part pep rally to encourage each other and part organizational meeting to increase our effectiveness by finding ways to work together to get our voice heard. Bring your signs.

    Great news! We have joined forces with the Kern County 9/12 Project Group to promote and celebrate Saturday, September 12. There are a good number of people in the Bakersfield area that are involved with both the 9/12 project and the Tea Party. Leadership of both groups want to ensure that we are united in our patriotic efforts. We want to make the 9/12 day in Bakersfield enjoyable for all and provide options for people to participate in both or one of the events scheduled. We have moved the Tea Party Rally at Central Park to start at 12:30 PM. This will give people who attend the 9/12
    event to view the special live broadcast of the Glenn Beck Show from Washington DC and have time to drive over to Central Park. This will also give others more options on what they want to do about lunch if they don’t attend the 9/12 event in the morning. Here is a revised schedule with keeping both events in mind:

    I. Sept 12th March on Washington DC Live Broadcast, Anchored by Glenn Beck 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM – Coconut Joe’s Banquet Hall 4000 Easton Drive, Suite 2

    Glenn Beck told us on March 13th with the unveiling of the 9/12 Project that he would meet us back here in six months on 9/12. Joe at Coconut Joe’s has generously donated his banquet room to us. Saturday morning, 9/12 we will be gathering to watch the march on Washington, anchored by Glenn Beck at Coconut Joe’s 4158 California Ave. We will be serving brunch/lunch. The cost is $18 per person, however a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the Kern County 9/12 group for future events! Joe has been very generous, he regrets that he will not be able to join us however, he will be in Washington DC! So get those RSVP’s in and let’s have a good turn-out! Glenn will begin his broadcast at 10:00 am to it completes at Noon! So plan to come share good conversation with like minded people, good food and a mimosa or two! So come out and support the merchants who are supporting us!

    Please RSVP ASAP so we can give Coconut Joe’s an idea of how many people to expect. You can RSVP through the facebook event link:

    II. Bakersfield 9/12 Tea Party Rally – Central Park at Mill Creek downtown Bakersfield 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM

    The Bakersfield Tea Party is inviting you, your friends, and your family to a Tea Party Rally on Saturday, September 12 from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM. The location will be at Central Park in downtown Bakersfield. Central Park is the location where the federal courthouse will be built and this has been an issue of great local debate. We are meeting to make our voices heard against fiscal irresponsibility, big government intrusion, over-taxation, and the damage to our free market system coming from all levels of government (Federal, State, County, and City). This is great chance for us to meet together and bring us all back to the place we were on September 12, 2001. The day after America was attacked we were not obsessed with Red States, Blue States or political parties. We were united as Americans, standing together to protect the greatest nation ever created.

    Event Schedule
    1. Opening address from Bakersfield Tea Party. Announcement of future tea party events and talk about where we go from here. Update and commentary on
    national and state issues concerning tea party patriots.

    2. Kern County 9/12 Project leadership will talk about the significance of 9/12 and the march on Washington. There are a good number of people from Kern county that are participating in the Washington D.C. march on 9/12.

    3. Conservative Ken Mettler, President of KLM Homes and member of Kern Citizens for Property Rights, will be speaking about Redevelopment: The Unknown
    Government and other local and state government issues that concern tea party principles.

    4. Please bring your lawn chairs, shade covers, and picnic lunch to enjoy lunch in the park or please go grab lunch at one of the downtown restaurants to help support the local economy. Here are some examples of downtown eateries that you can enjoy before or after the rally:

    Luigi’s, Goose Loonies, Bill Lee’s, Sinaloa’s, Mexicali’s, La Costa Maricos, Flame and Skewers, Happy Jack’s,Sequoia Sandwich, Sub Station

    Please help the Bakersfield economy by supporting Coconut Joe’s by attending the live broadcast of the March on Washington DC from 9:30 to 12:00 or going to one of the downtown Bakersfield eateries. Thank you!

    IS INTIMIDATION SHAPING THE ELECTION ?

    antpantherj1ACORN offers cigarettes to register the homeless to vote multiple times. Identification is not needed to prove you are who you say you are when voting. New Yorkers register false addresses in Ohio to change that states results. Mickey Mouse is even registered to vote for Obama in Florida. Members of the National Football league are erroneously registered to vote in Nevada ……

    These are just some examples of the fraud being used to put Barack Obama over the top in the 2008 and election. Examples like this are widespread. They have sparked countless federal and state investigations but now, during the final hours of our historic quadrennial election, intimidation kicks into high gear.

    Confirmed reports have just been released detailing that two Black Panthers have been guarding entranceways into polling places in Philadelphia. One brandished a nightstick. When asked to remove himself from the property the Obama enforcer refused.

    Philadelphia police had to escort the Black Panther away.

    Random incident?antfists6

    Nothing that occurs in the Obama campaign is random. Voter fraud is sponsored by the Obama/Biden campaign through coordinated activities with ACORN and so is their “Give Over Your Vote” effort.

    Is there a racial component to all this? Well liberals will accuse the delivery of these facts to be racist propoganda. But when considering the facts in this case, critics of voter intimidation would say that a Black Panther guarding the entrance to a polling site has a racial component to it. The Obama enforcers refusing to leave while shouting “you can’t stop a black man from winning this election” just confirms it.

    If Black Panthers with nightsticks are being used as poll workers, I can’t wait to see what type of people will be used to fill out the presidential cabinet of a Barack Obama administration.

    McCAIN DEFEATS OBAMA ?

    antpaper1All indications are that by as early as 8:30 pm, on the east coast, we will be having to get accustomed to hearing the words “President-Elect Obama.”

    The only question that seems to really remain is whether or not Obama will win by a landslide or not. It won’t make a difference how much he wins by, a win is a win, but having already baptized Barack Obama as the King of Kings, the media needs to create some kind of suspense.

    Yet, despite the polls I have a feeling that polls are a bit off.

    We know that all the polls have been recalibrated to make up for assumed higher democratic turnout as well as a higher than normal number of first time, younger and African-American voters. In trying to adjust their polling results for these anticipated factors, pollsters have intentionally polled more democrats than usual. That would of course account for more positive results for democrats than for republicans.

    Given the current political atmosphere such tweaking of the polls probably does reflect the actual voter turnout and help to make the poll results more accurate. Probably, but not definitely. I have a feeling that many of theses polls, which already have a liberal bend to them, may have been bent toward the left much further than necessary .

    If that is the case, it still does not mean that Obama is not favored in this election. He is, but I don’t think by quite as much as the polls would have us believe. I hope not anyway.

    In fact “hope” is what I am really going on here. Hope and a sense that not quite everyone is convinced that Barack Obama is the great savior that liberals make him out to be. In fact I do believe that many people see Barack Obama as an unaccomplished blowhard who only has experience with running his mouth.

    The hopeful sense of something not being right with the polls and that most people do not trust Obama, leads me to make a hail Mary pass and predict McCain to be the winner. This sense of hope is reached because I do not believe most people trust Obama’s experience and believe him to be sincere. I also think they do not appreciate his promise to spread the wealth through increasing the size and scope of government.

    Additionally I believe that Obama has not closed the sale in these final days.

    Given the undeniably negative atmosphere for republicans and the undeniable popularity of state and local democrat candidates further down the ballot, Obama should be ahead by a lot more than he actually is. Given the popularity of local democrats, Obama’s poll numbers are much lower than they should be.

    So it is with more of a sixth sense than facts that leads me to predict that John McCain will win with 286 electoral votes to

    This leap of faith gives McCain the most hotly contested states of Florida, Virginia, North Carolina and antlastmap6Pennsylvania. If he can actually win Pennsylvania and Virginia it would also indicate that other hotly contested battlegrounds states like Missouri and Nevada are also likely to trend towards McCain, so I also call them for him.

    Is this likely? If you believe in some of the polls, no, its not. But I believe in miracles. I have made myself believe that even though McCain’s campaign sucked and never properly articulated our case, the right combination of people in the right number of states know that this election is less about personalities and more about ideologies. I believe that enough people know that the differences between Obama and McCain are wide. They understand that on the economy one moves to socialism and the other tries to strengthen our economy. That one wants to raise taxes and spread a small amount of wealth while the other wants to lower taxes and spread the opportunity to achieve greater wealth. I still believe that most Americans prefer the candidate who waves the American flag more than the candidate who wants America to wave the white flag of surrender.

    If such sentiments do exist, maybe people are not voting as much for McCain or Obama as they are for the principles that they represent. If that is the case than I truly believe that most people support the American way over the old Soviet way. I believe most people believe more in John McCain’s way than Obama’s way.

    All of this causes me to feel that we just might relive a “Dewey Defeats Truman-like episode in history.

    ant-trudew7The problem with that thinking though, is that back in 1948 polls were only taken up till the week before the election. The data that the media was basing their projections on did not include the seven days leading up to the election. They did not capture the undecided voters who broke for Truman during the closing days of that election.

    Today, polls are being taken and interpreted up to the very last minute. That makes up for the mistakes that were made when The Chicago Tribune erroneously declared that Tom Dewey beat President Harry Truman. But a boy can dream, can’t he? History does repeat itself, occasionally. So maybe, just maybe we can be experiencing a little déjà vu. Maybe the apparent tightening of the polls in these closing days are being undervalued and causing pollsters to underestimate the depth of support for John McCain’s candidacy.

    My heart tells me McCain does it. Logic tells me that Obama will be President. But, like millions of Americans who are voting for Obama based on his appealing to their hearts more than their heads, on this one, I am going with my heart and believing that Senator John McCain will win and spare our nation from a costly education in socialism.

    Twas the Night Before Elections . . .

    Twas the night before elections
    And all through the town
    Tempers were flaring
    Emotions all up and down!

    I, in my bathrobe
    With a cat in my lap
    Had cut off the TV
    Tired of political crap.

    When all of a sudden
    There arose such a noise
    I peered out of my window
    Saw Obama and his boys

    They had come for my wallet*
    They wanted my pay*
    To give to the others*
    Who had not worked a day!*

    He snatched up my money
    And quick as a wink
    Jumped back on his bandwagon
    As I gagged from the stink

    He then rallied his henchmen
    Who were pulling his cart
    I could tell they were out
    To tear my country apart!

    On Fannie, on Freddie,
    On Biden and Ayers!
    On Acorn, On Pelosi’
    He screamed at the pairs!

    They took off for his cause
    And as he flew out of sight
    I heard him laugh at the nation
    Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!

    So I leave you to think
    On this one final note-
    IF YOU DONT WANT SOCIALISM
    GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!

    We Get The Government That We Deserve

    If Barack Obama wins this election, it will be deserved.
     
    He will have successfully orchestrated a campaign that effectively persuaded enough votes to establish a plurality of enough states to garner the 270 or more electoral votes needed to win.

    The United States will also be getting what it deserves.

    If there are a majority of people in this country whom are willing to adopt a system approaching socialism and that burdens the taxpayer with government programs and redistribution of wealth, than we deserve it.

    If that is what the people think they want, than they need to suffer it’s consequences. They need to learn their lesson. They need to realize what excessive taxation does and what the government can’t effectively do and shouldn’t do.

    It will be a much deserved consequence for my party too.

    The Republican party became complacent. After a dozen years in control of the house and senate they lost their maverick, conservative thinking, their antigovernment thinking. The type of thinking that opposed heavy governmental influence over the daily lives of people. It was a school of thought which challenged a ruling bureaucratic mentality and opposed political hypocrisy, and a ruling arrogance that put those in government above the law.

    After a dozen years in power, Republicans lost that thinking and began to suffer from the repercussions of letting power go to their heads. They began to enjoy their own power more than the opportunity to empower those they represented.

    So in losing sight, they lost power.

    My party also deserves to lose this election because we have failed to properly articulate our purpose. We failed to convey the fact that the GOP believes, first and foremost, in the power of freedom. That belief includes the defense of freedom at home, as well as abroad.

    We failed to convey the fact that as Republicans we are proponents of the greatest social welfare program known to man. A program called opportunity. It is the one program that helps more people in more ways than any other government program created by FDR and LBJ combined.

    Opportunity opens all doors for all those who are willing to walk through them and, as republicans, our mission is to create opportunities for all and make it available to all.

    We failed to explain that opportunity is not achieved by bringing down some to better a few, but by lifting government burdens and lowering taxes on all. It is achieved by lowering costs on businesses so that they can hire more people and provide more opportunity to people. It is achieved by lowering the cost of running a burdensome government so that taxes on the people can be lowered and allow them the opportunity to spend more, as well save more and invest more in more opportunities.

    Not a single Republican stepped up and stated that instead of the government offering citizens hundreds of dollars in a rebate to stimulate the economy, maybe we should be taking less from them in the first place.

    The money we gave back to the people to spark our economic engine was originally taken from the people. Yet has one Republican been bold enough to question the premature talks of Obama, Pelosi and Reid to offer another stimulus package if Obama is elected? Has one of them asked why if giving the citizens back their money stimulates the economy, than why is lowering taxes and letting them keep the money that we are giving back to them not a stimulus for the economy in the first place?”

    The GOP missed the opportunity to unite Americans around the fact that the expansion of opportunity is not achieved by expanding government. It is achieved by lifting government ’s burdens and restrictions on thing likes education where we need to expand school choice through vouchers. Issues like that were gift wrapped and handed to us by Barack Obama.

    Obama called for more government and more taxes for more government . He is calling for more government restrictions and fewer opportunities for personal choices such as those that would be made available through school vouchers.

    While Obama based his campaign on more government and dividing Americans with class warfare, John McCain could have united us by promoting less government and more freedom and opportunity. Opportunity is what can unite us. Obama’s class warfare is what divides us.

    These are just some of the points not effectively made by Republicans in this election. McCain touched upon such notes but barely. It was not a message that was developed and conveyed enough. Part of the reason for that may very well be the fact that we nominated John McCain.

    In John McCain we selected a nominee who has never been closely associated with the conservative philosophy. It was part of his problem from the beginning and it required him to waste valuable time trying to define himself as a conservative in order to inspire the party he represented. He had to do so at a time when the conservative label was not regarded highly by the general populous. Had McCain not needed to solidify his conservative credentials, with the party base, he could have used that time to solidify his well deserved maverick image. An image that is highly regarded by Americans.

    Instead, the McCain campaign, forged ahead with a mottled message. It was a message that inspired few, connected with even fewer and never struck a cohesive chord that attracted enough people to rally around.

    Under these circumstances, Barack Obama was able to capitalize on the anti-republican sentiments that have come about because of another individual who lost the ability to convey the right message, our inarticulate, incumbent, republican president.

    Truthfully, Obama’s campaign was nothing great either. His success is merely rooted the failure of poorly run, republican campaign.

    The originality of Barack Obama’s campaign slogan, “Change” was less than creative, effective for the time, but not creative. And his ability to change any minds was minimal. His campaign did inspire the choir that he was preaching to but it did not convert the nonbelievers. Unlike Ronald Reagan and Reagan Democrats, the term Obama Republicans is not something that we will be referring to as a political sea of change over the course of a generation. There are few, if any, who are republicans today, that will be calling themselves democrats tomorrow, even if they vote for Obama on Tuesday.

    If there is a significant number of republicans voting for Obama, they are doing so not because they believe in the liberal ideology that he espouses, but because they do not like the messenger that we have in John McCain. Some republicans may even vote for Obama as a form of protest urging the GOP to get back to it’s more conservative, antigovernment economic roots. Others may not go so far as to vote for Obama’s socialism. Instead they may just provide the margin of victory for Obama by not voting at all and denying McCain support that another republican candidate would have gotten from them.

    Either way, if Barack Obama is elected president, it will be due more to McCain losing than Obama winning. Obama’s campaign was nothing great. He offered us nothing new. He simply offered more of the failed policies that republicans had to save us from in the 80’s. Obama may win because he shaped himself up to be a governmental messiah that intends to make government the source of our greatness. It is an approach that rejects the fundamental thinking that allows one to understand that the source of our greatness is not government but our people, our free people, endowed by our creator not by a bureaucracy.

    If he wins it will be a mistake that we can learn from and we certainly will learn from it.

    On the other hand, if John McCain gets elected, it will not be because his campaign was a model of successful strategy. It will be because most Americans do understand that the change Barack Obama is offering us is too closely aligned with the socialism that America has fought against. And if that is the case, unlike Michelle Obama, it won’t be the first time that I am proud of my country. It will just be another reason for my continued pride in my country.

    If not, I will continue to be proud of my relatively young nation and chalk the next four years off to the same type of experimentation and learning experiences that all youth must go through. My only fears deal with the existing threats that we face. The type of threats that all vulnerable youngsters need protection from during dangerous times.

    If electing Barack Obama is needed to provide us with a learning experience in socialism, what learning experience will it take to teach us how to properly defend ourselves? That is a lesson we should have already learned by now, but I guess 9/11 was either not dramatic enough or too long ago for people to remember very well.

    Campaign Promises and More Promises

    It was election time, again. So, a politician decided to go out to the local reservation to gather support from the Native Americans. They were all assembled in the Council Hall to hear the speech. 

     

    The politician had worked up to his finale, and the crowd was getting more and more excited. “I promise better education opportunities for Native Americans!”

     

    The crowd went wild, shouting “Hoya! Hoya!” 

     

    The politician was a bit puzzled by the native word, but was encouraged by their enthusiasm. “I promise gambling reforms to allow a Casino on the Reservation!”

     

    “Hoya! Hoya!” cried the crowd, stomping their feet.

     

    “I promise more social reforms and job opportunities for Native Americans!” 

     

    The crowd reached a frenzied pitch shouting “Hoya! Hoya! Hoya!”

     

    After the speech, the politician was touring the Reservation, and saw a tremendous herd of cattle. Since he was raised on a ranch, and knew a bit about cattle, he asked the Chief if he could get closer to take a look at the cattle.

     

    “Sure,” the Chief said, “but be careful not to step in the hoya.”

    ELECTION NIGHT SCHEDULE AND PREDICTIONS

    Election night can and will be very interesting but if you have yourself the right tools it could be a short one.  Certain state races could be quite telling and barring any voter machine falures or an obvious voter scandal that calls for the impounding of ballots, if some of those states go one way or the other, you couid know who the next President will be buy as early as 8:00 pm.  Maybe even earlier.
     
    But to reach that conclusion you need the right tools.  So here it is, your own little election night guide.
    It’s kind of like a racing slip for the Kentucky Derby of elections. 

    Below you will find the scheduled poll closing times for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  You will also find the play by play for one election night scenario.

     
    7PM Eastern
    Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia
     
    At 7:00 pm the first polls close In Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, South Carolina, Vermont and Virginia. If the results are not particularly close, projections could be made within minutes. Vermont will be a landslide and it will be called for Senator Barack Obama. Kentucky, South Carolina and Georgia will also have pluralities large enough s to safely call them,  but they will be for Senator John McCain.  These results may come in relatively quickly, probably by 7:10 to 7:20 PM.

    Virginia is also, usually, called rather quickly but I suspect that there will not be a rapid rush to call Virginia for Obama or McCain. With polls claiming that the Virginia race is in the bag for Barack Obama by as much as 10% and others having the race as close as 2% combined with the high voter turnout, calling this one quickly may be tough.. Ultimately though, Virginia is likely going blue. If it does, McCain is in trouble. By losing Virginia, Senator McCain will need to make up for the loss of their 11 electoral votes and he will have to do so within a map that offers him few opportunities. It will not be impossible to make them up but difficult. However, Indiana closes it’s polls at this time and if Indiana goes to Barack Obama, especially with Virginia going the same way, than you can start hiding your money under the mattresses because you can safely say that President Obama will be living in the White House

    An average of all polls in Indiana give Barrack Obama an edge over McCain by less than half of 1 percent but if there is any state that is likely to lean in McCain’s direction it is Indiana so if McCain does get it, the first round of poll closings should result with John McCain receiving 42 electoral college votes to Obama’s 16.                                      

    7:30PM Eastern
    Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina

    The biggest player in this second round, Ohio, will probably be the most conclusive of all. If Senator McCain losses their 20 electoral votes, the possibility to win any combinations that reaches the magic number of 270 electoral votes is highly unlikely. To do so he would need Pennsylvania, Missouri, Florida, Colorado, Indiana as well as two other state that may have already been called for Obama, Virginia and North Carolina.  That would leave Obama with only 265 to McCain’s 273. This highly doubtful.
    West Virginia is unquestionably in McCain’s column and despite the current polls of these states, in this second set of closings, I expect McCain to win Ohio in and North Carolina.   Conventional wisdom and history would seem to make this very possible if not likely. So we give them to him. That brings the total count for John McCain to 82 electors to Obama’s 16.


    8:00PM Eastern

    Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, D.C., Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee

    Now 8:00 pm arrives. If McCain received any of the necessary combinations needed up to this point, here too, is a do or die situation for John McCain. It also produces one of the most lucrative results of all poll closing times. 171 electoral votes are up for grabs at this point and it includes some of the south which is strong territory for McCain. The problem is that much of Obama’s true blue northeastern states also turn out their results at 8 o‘clock. The results for the Obama rich megalopolis from Massachusetts in the Northeast to DC in the Mid Atlantic begins to pour out for him here. It also includes the crucial states of Pennsylvania and Missouri. Most important of all for McCain will be the sunshine state of Florida.  We can safely say that of the states in this 8:00 pm round of poll closings, Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Tennessee will break for McCain. That gives him 33 more electors bringing him up to 115.

    Obama will definitely take Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Washington, DC and his home state of Illinois. That’s a total of 84 bringing Obama up to 95votes in the electoral college.

    That leaves us with the battleground states of Missouri and two of the biggest cliff hangers in this 8:00 pm closing time. They are some of the biggest prizes in the electoral sweepstakes , Pennsylvania and Florida.

    Parts of Florida close ealier than 8:00 pm.  But by 8 pm, the panhandle, which is in a different time zone form the rest of the state,  makes the results in Florida official.  In the 2000 election, the pro-Gore media ignored this fact and called the election for Gore before these results were in.  I do not expect them to make the same error this time.

    With an average of polls showing McCain trailing in Florida by 2.2 %, he can pull it off. If he does, it gives him a total of 142 electoral votes and he will still be in the race for at least another half hour and the next rounds of results.

    With the polls almost as close in Missouri as they are in Florida, I will put Missouri in Mac’s column too. Now he is up to 153.

    The remaining state in this group, Pennsylvania, is becoming interesting.

    Obama’s reference to the citizens of the western part of the state “bitterly clinging to their guns and religion” along with their own Congressman John Murtha first calling them racists and than apologizing by calling them rednecks, Pennsylvania could be in play and I think it just might be the surprise of the night.  I think McCain will win it by a whisper.   If the polls in Pennsylvania are as inaccurate as I believe, and it does go McCain’s way, he will now have 174 electoral votes.

    I do regret that this is looking unlikely.  McCain most likely will not be able to pull it off. Currently Mac is in back by as much as 11% here. That would give Obama 116 electoral votes and would also likely seal his winning the 2008 election for President of the United States.

    If the scenario goes the way I have suggested, so far, and McCain can pull off Pennsylvania,  Senator McCain is still viable when we get to 8:30 pm and the next polls close.

    8:30PM

    Arkansas

    By the time many of the 8:00 pm results are being tabulated and projections are being made in other states, parts of Arkansa start reporting results.  Arkansas, with it’s 6 electoral votes closes it’s polls at 8:30 pm. By 9:00 pm all voting is completed in Arkansas and the results should be conclusive enough to call it for McCain. That would bring the Republican nominee up to 180 electors.

    9:00PM Eastern

    Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Wisconsin, Wyoming

    At 9:00 pm., the polls close in 14 more states. It concludes the Northeast where Obama wins New York and Rhode Isalnd bringing Obama up to 130 electoral votes, just 50 less than McCain. But McCain will be able to safely claim victories in the results from states outside of the Northeast. Such as his home state of Arizona.  Others include South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Louisiana, Kansas and the second largest prize, Texas. That will bring John McCain up to 250.

    In addition to New York and Rhode Island, Senator Obama should easily claim 42 more electoral votes from the combined total of victories in Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, and Wisconsin. Barack Obama will now have 172 electoral votes in his column.

    That leaves Colorado. Obama is ahead here but it is not a insurmountable lead for John McCain to overcome. However, trends would indicate to me that Obama will take Colorado and after the 9:00 pm results have been projected it will be Barack Obama 181electoral votes to John McCain’s 250.

     

    10:00PM Eastern

    Iowa, Montana, Nevada, Utah

    At 10:00 pm 4 more state polls close and throw their combined 20 electoral votes into the ring. Iowa, Montana, Nevada and Utah should all be good states for McCain but Obama’s has a lead in Iowa that will not be overtaken and so Obama will get their 7 electors. McCain should take Montana and will take the state that consistently gives Republicans some of the widest margins of victory in all elections, Utah. Now it’s 258 Mccain to 188 for Obama.

    Yet again another crucial state for McCain will be Nevada. If he manages to win Virginia earlier in the evening and still wins Ohio and Missouri the final result would be 269 to 269. Obama would still win any such tie in the electoral college by a majority of states controlled by democratic congressional delegations but if McCain happened to change New Hampshire’s direction and won the granite state, he would be the next President.
    Fact is that McCain is behind Obama by an average of 3.3 % in Nevada.   Even though that is a smaller margin than in other states, Obama will probably pull Nevada off. His ground game and union support from hotel workers and gambling interests in Las Vegas make him tough to beat here. So now it’s Obama’s 193 to McCain’s 258. If McCain did happen to win Nevada it still wont matter. The Obama blue tide to come will inevitably doom McCain to his last campaign for President.

                                                                               

    11:00PM Eastern
    California, Hawaii, Idaho, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington

    By 11:00 pm. Hawaii, Idaho, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington State and the largest electoral prize, California, all close their poll.
    McCain will undoubtedly take Idaho and North Dakota which would bring his electoral vote count to 265. Obama is going to win Hawaii, Oregon and the state of Washington overwhelmingly, which brings him up to 215 votes.

    Then California’s whopping 55 electoral votes will be handed over to Senator Barack Obama like the Oscar being awarded to the years best actor at the Academy Awards ceremony. The Keith Olbermanns, Chris Matthews, Tom Brokaws and other liberal loving loons will be able to rejoice with certainty because Barack Obama will have a total of 270 electoral votes. That would be just the right number needed to win .

                                                                                 

    1:00AM Eastern – Alaska

    It won’t be over though. With iceberg like speed, Alaska will make it official at 1:00 am and cast all three of their electoral votes for John McCain and their popular Governor, Sarah Palin. That would give the McCain-Palin ticket a total of 268 electoral votes or 2 short of what he would have needed to win.

    Of course there are 4 different possible scenarios that could create a victory for John McCain.   Some include winning Pennsylvania while also taking Nevada while still losing in Virginia.  Other scenarios don’t allow McCain to prevail but are more interesting. One actually is a tie in the electoral college with a combination of state wins for McCain that includes New Hampshire.  All are unlikely.  It is even unlikely that McCain will win Pennsylvania.  
     
    The bottom line though is, that if current polls are correct,  McCain will probably lose not only Nevada, Colorado, Virginia and North Carolina but Florida as well as Pennsylvania and Missouri. 

    Either way one should be able to tell who won by between 8:00 pm and 8:30 pm.  It could be even earlier than that.  If when the polls close at 7:00 pm, Indiana has Obama winning their electoral college votes, than you can rest assured that McCain probably can’t pull out victories in some of the other states that he needs and are less friendly to his candidacy than Indiana is.

     
    If after 7:30 pm,North Carolina bolted it’s previous red hue and went blue for Obama, even if McCain won in Indiana, that could prove to be fatal.  If North Carolina votes for Obama it will most likely precludes Senator John McCain from being able to achieve the minimal number of 270 electoral required to win the election. 
    Polls have been known to be wrong and there is still a chance for McCain to win. Obama has not locked up states like Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina or even Colorado and Virginia.  New Hampshire could alos start changing directions as undecided voters begin to break in his direction. 

    In any event I am confident in this fact.  Obama will win the popular vote  He will do so even if he losses the election in the electoral college.  I make this claim because Obama will produce the highest voter turnout we have ever seen in our urban centers, the areas where the highest concentration of voters are.

    Obama will produce victories in heavily populated states like New York and California, Michigan and even in Florida.  Barack Obama will win with exorbitant pluralities, especially in cities.  Because of those high concentration of voters he will win some states with those highly populated, big cities by a million or more votes.  Whereas McCain will win in smaller states and by smaller margins.  Margins more like tens or hundreds of thousands as opposed to millions.

      
    The margin of victories will not matter as much as the electoral college vote.  So if McCain can win some key states like Missouri, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado and Nevada, even by a small margin, it won’t matter how many millions Obama beats McCain by in places like New York, Illinois or California and you can rest assured that Obama will beat him big time in those places.
      
    I actually fear the reaction that we might encounter from the electorate if McCain wins the electoral college but loses the popular vote to Obama.  It is a reaction that will probably effect us more than the presidenciy of either McCain or Obama.

    Republicans Democrats

    The difference between Republicans & Democrats

     A Republican and a Democrat were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person.

    The republican gave the homeless person his business card and told him come to his business for a job. He then took twenty dollars out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.

    The Democrat was very impressed, and when they came to another homeless person, He decided to help. He walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the welfare office. He then reached into the Republicans pocket and gave him fifty dollars.
