Billionaire Thomas Peterffy is spending his own money to explain why he is voting the way he is. His story is compelling as he has lived it and is worried that the America he came to in 1956 may not exist with the opportunities he had if the election goes a certain way. Watch the video and then ask yourself why a man would spend between $ 5 million and $10 million of his own money on airing this video.
I think the answer is clear. A man who has seen and lived through a socialistic political system and became successful here in the United States doesn’t want to see the country that has given him the opportunity for success go back to what he escaped.
Attorney General Tom Horne accused the Obama administration Tuesday of trying to thwart Arizona’s voter-ID laws in a bid to get more illegal immigrants to the polls — presumably to cast ballots for the president and Democrats.
Horne acknowledged that a brief filed by the Department of Justice in a case to be heard next month by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals centers around the agency’s argument that Arizona’s law requiring proof of citizenship to register is pre-empted by federal law. But Horne, a Republican, told Capitol Media Services he sees something more sinister.
“I think the motive is that the more illegals that vote, the better the Obama administration thinks it will do,’’ he said. Read the entire story….
Tuesday the voters of Ohio resoundingly sent a message to Washington: “We don’t want your government healthcare!”
In a almost 66% to 34% vote Ohioans voted to enact the Proposed Constitutional Amendment to preserve the freedom of Ohioans to choose their health care and health care coverage, otherwise known nationally as Issue 3.
The passage of Issue 3 protects Ohioans from the federal government to force them to purchase any type or product or service, specifically aimed at Obama’s centerpiece legislation of national health care, otherwise known as Obamacare.
Issue 3 read:
The proposed amendment would provide that:
In Ohio, no law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in a health care system.
In Ohio, no law or rule shall prohibit the purchase or sale of health care or health insurance.
Citizens, just a reminders to all the folks out there – there are about 300 million living in the US. So as far as media goes, if you add up all of the conservative media watchers you are looking at maybe (roughly) about 30 million? (not nearly enough!). Most average Joes don’t really know the issues at much depth and just trust much of what they hear on TV, which we know is usually twisted to favor left, especially more so in the past year.
YOU are the media now.

Kent, Ohio - The Portage County TEA Party today released a letter it has sent to the Portage County Board of Elections which documents specific voting machine problems observed by its members in Portage County on election day, November 2, 2010. The group recruited regular citizens to volunteer to be poll watchers this year and observe the election process, in an effort to assure Portage County voters that their votes are counted accurately and that the process was secure.
Portage County TEA Party Executive Director, Tom Zawistowski, said “After observing this election in an up close and personal manner, our members have a tremendous respect for the challenges that the workers at the Board of Elections, and at the actual polls themselves, face before, during and after election day. Running an election is no easy task. Though the vast majority of votes take place without incident, we were surprised by the number of problems with voting machines documented by our members, which is why we wrote this letter.” Continue reading Portage County Raises Concerns about Voting Machine Problems
A new IBD/TIPP poll on public attitudes suggests that Tuesday’s event was less an election than an intervention: Stop what you are doing; you’re hurting us all.
A majority of the public wants Washington to stop the spending that has exploded the budget deficit. In a listing of top priorities for Congress, cutting the deficit by cutting spending came in No. 1, cited by 53%. (Fully 73%, including a majority of Democrats, said this is a “high priority.”) Continue reading Americans’ Message To New Congress: Less Gov’t, Please
It was an eye opener last night in Ohio, a late Halloween horror flick for many democrats in Ohio. Angry voters had decided they’ve had enough – enough lost jobs, enough money taken out of their pockets as they decidedly defeated many incumbents in Ohio’s races.
I went to the polls this morning with a watchful eye on what was going on at the local school where I go to vote. At 8am it was relatively quiet. I suspect most had already been there to vote before going to work.
Nothing strange or out of the ordinary as far as the eye could tell…
But, if anyone sees anything out of place, experiences a “gremlin” in their voting machines or has evidence of voter intimidation, electioneering or anything else out of place, please let the Ohio Free Press know.
And please remember to GET OUT AND VOTE and tell others to do the same!
I’ve had the chance the past few days to really sit and think about the election that happens November 2nd here in Ohio. What are we voting on in our local, state and federal races?
Many would say that it is an ideological struggle between the Republicans and the Democrats. Others would say it is the struggle for our national identity and what this nation was founded and built upon. Others say it is the pivotal point in our great nation’s history and we could slide down the slope into oblivion as the world’s greatest nation (past tense) or a renewing of that greatness.
I propose that it might be something greater than all of these.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – A handful of McDonald’s employees in northeastern Ohio received handbills in their most recent paychecks suggesting they vote for three Republican candidates.
“If the right people are elected we will be able to continue with raises and benefits at or above our present levels,” the insert said. “If others are elected we will not.”
The fast food chain’s corporate headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., quickly condemned the action by Canton franchisee Paul Siegfried, saying it violated company policy. Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, the Democratic elections chief, said she was launching an investigation because the action appeared to violate Ohio election laws.
