Nevada will be huge for the upcoming election

November 1, 2012
With 6 electoral college votes Nevada will be key in the results of the November 6th ballot picking the next President of these United States.  Who has the advantage, Mitt or Barack? With over 119 thousand more democratic registered voters in the state Barack has the advantage on paper.

Will that advantage result in a win for his campaign? Not likely as Nevadans remember how this President devastated our cities and our state when he went on air not once but twice to inform the nation they shouldn’t go “to Vegas” in these tough economic times spending “college” funds.

Our economy suffered worst then any state in the Union with high unemployment, high foreclosure rates and a drop in tourism due to the words spewed from the Presidents mouth.  Many of those who voted for him in 2008 have expressed sorrow as they realize the hype was better than the word.

With only 37% of the promises made on the campaign trail held to date, the road in Nevada will be a tough fight.  We remember how he stated just a few short years ago he would reduce the national debt by 50% because it was “unpatriotic” to increase the debt by 4 trillion as George Bush had done.  Well, with 6 trillion added to the debt since taking office Obama has failed on delivering that promise.

Candidate Obama also promised in his first year he would sign into law immigration reform because the cost was to exorbitant for any state to continue to fund. Well not only didn’t he pass any legislation but he never even offered any to the Congress which by the way was democratic for the first two years.

There are a host of other promises made and broken, too many to list here. So in these closing days as both candidates talk about how they would handle the office once elected the stories are vastly different. One candidate wants four more years to finish what he stated.  While the other wants four years to fix the mess that has oven taken our nation.

Come November 6th, 2012 be sure to exercise your God-given right and vote for the candidate of your choice.  We as a nation are guaranteed basic freedoms and rights under our Constitution that no other nation in the world has. Let’s not lose them.


Anxiously awaiting the results

October 27, 2012

Like a trip to the doctors, this election has everyone on pins and needles.  The blood has been drawn and the doctor informs us they will call as soon as the test come back from the lab possibly a week to ten days.

As we anxiously wait for the results we wonder if everything will be alright. We worry that something is wrong, a constant fear as we are not doctors but we know deep down inside there is terrible news to come.

That is November 6th, the day of reckoning, as we get the call on who will lead this, the greatest nation in the world for the next four years.   Will we have more of the same or will we have a new look toward the future? Right now no one can say specifically till the test results come in.

According to the current President he needs more time to implement his plan, those promises that he hasn’t lived up too.  He needs us to believe in the “Hope and Change” he promised while campaigning for his first term.  Immigration reform in the first year,  50% reduction in the deficit because it was “unpatriotic” to increase our national debt by 4 trillion dollars as George Bush did as or 43rd President.

On the other hand, Mitt Romney has traveled the country to inform the voters, “we don’t have to settle for years of disappointment and decline.”   The former Governor has been traveling across the nation with his VP pick Paul Ryan insisting the President hasn’t been paying attention to the will of the people.

Soon the doctor will call us with the results.  For some the findings will cause elation as nothing appears to be wrong.  For others there will be devastation as the paperwork causes the heart to drop to the floor knowing their time is limited.  No exercise routine can help them, no change in diet will relieve them, no words will be able to console them.

November 6th will be the day we remember as the day that changed our lives forever. So remember to have your voices heard and vote. Regardless of your party, political affiliation or ideology, vote as it is your God-given right and your patriotic duty in this, the greatest nation on Earth.
