Get to the rally, people! Get out and vote!

Don't let the IBEW and other city unions buy our government away from us! Democracy must rule the day!

Stop the socialist movement in Los Angeles! Return L.A. to it its glory days and better. L.A. should be the jewel of the West, and it will be if the people make better political decisions.

Vote Walter Moore for mayor!
No on Measure B!

Are you going to pay attention this time or is there something more important you have to do rather than voting tomorrow?
Voting doesn't hurt and you still make time to go to the dentist.
Make time to vote tomorrow. Some are hoping you do NOT. That is why they made the date on march 3!
Focus your anger on where it counts!

I am a little psychic so I say it now.....
Thanks for voting!

That's a good point that many people aren't aware of -- politicians and government labor unions and bureaucrats like to make voting as inconvenient as they can in order to ensure that the special interests rule the day.

People have to get off their butts and vote. Look at how much local government influences our lives: utility rates, taxes, bureaucracy, streets, traffic, refuse, crime, and more. These elections for mayors and council people are far too important to lazily ignore.

It was nice of "The Daily News" to report this but nicer would have been last week or at least over the weekend to give everyone a heads up.

I have a personal webspace with links to stories and other resources including this event. I also have the link there to the Find Your Polling Place utility: http://www.lavote.net/locator/

My site is: http://members.dslextreme.com/users/nmoore/

I will be reviewing published articles and adding links as I can up through tonight.

To those who would want to vote for me for another 4 years:

Only the brain-dead, crack addicts would re-elect me for another term.

I love ignoring city business and just travel to wherever I want at a whim. I love seeing traffic getting worse and worse as I'm getting greased by real estate developers into building more condos on the Westside. I love seeing crime go up while, at the same time, lying to you idiots that crime is down. I love seeing your loved ones getting killed by the illegal alien gangbangers whom I've been protecting for the last 4 years. I love raising taxes by deceiving you gullible idiots into voting for some phony proposition. I love seeing LA going down the toilet under my administration.

So go soak your head in a bucket full of sheep dip and re-elect me for another 4 years!!

This is not just a "get out the vote" rally, but we want you to vote only for the people listed in this article and against those who aren't. The second group are who we're bringing our pitchforks and torches for. Well, not really bringing then or we'd get thrown out of a fancy hotel like that, and as we're not a bunch who likes to get all gussied up to begin with, that wouldn't look good. If you plan on getting drunk, bring plenty of cash for the bar. If you're NOT going to vote for our candidates, please stay home.(Or you just might get one of those pitchforks or blowtorches directed at your own deriere. Verbally speaking, or course.)

I agree with that.

If you're stupid and don't study the issues and the candidates. If you vote based on a person's ethnicity or race alone. If you vote for people because they're attractive. If you vote for people because they promise you free stuff from the government. Then, by all means, stay home and stay out of the democratic process!

Vote Walter Moore for mayor!

Vote NO on Measure B!

I agree to everything being said. Well, except for the Tony Villar post. Get out & vote!
I wish there was a better representation of candidates. I mean, essentially, there are only two viable candidates right now.

You will not see the same voter turnout like for Obama. The blacks are complacent with thier representative. They know a loser is not worth supporting. So the winner will be villaraigosa by a landslide.
Tag, your it. now you will feel the wrath of the Brown power Fist.

Watch out for big slugs in Union tee shirts.....they always show up to intimidate the citizens at any Pro America Rally.

Remember the Party and the Unions are the sworn enemies of the citizen families in California.

They are Villagairosa's "enforcers" as they have no more pride in their citizenship or concern for their fellow citizens than the racist chicano hate monger Mayor.
