Only Days Before Election Day, Obama Gets To Be President

President Obama - Hurricane SandyThe Obama administration is showing us that big government can respond effectively during a national disaster. No response will ever be perfect but all indications point to a federal government well equipped to handle the challenge. This is what happens when you have competence in the White House and in other high government positions. This is what happens when we elect people who believe in government. And so, with only days until election day, Obama gets to be the president while Romney remains the politician. Let us not forget what happens when we elect people who say government is the problem — they get into office and prove it. (to paraphrase Bill Maher)

Liberal? Not Voting Obama? Thinking Of Voting Third Party?

If you are considering a vote for a third party presidential candidate like Jill Stein of the Green Party, or if you are thinking of not voting at all, I would like to remind you that the Supreme Court already leans conservative 5 to 4.
