All of you were warned, all of you were told, he ( Obama) could not be trusted, and now, it has all come to pass. If you want to do the right thing, if you want to fix this problem, then you need to vote for Scott Brown. He can help bring a balance back, and to give ultra liberal democrats a reason for pause. We need to get this country back to its principals. We can fix what is wrong with healthcare, and we can enact good legislation, one thought out step at a time. It does not need to cost trillions of dollars, or cause people to go bankrupt either. The media would lead you to think that there is no other options out their, but other proposals have been offered, but ignored by the liberals. Show Obama who he works for, and tell him we are not going to be pushed around. We will not stand for back door, hidden deals. We are done being taxed on everything, this is OUR country, not his. We the people still means something. Thanks to those democrats who see this as too much even for them, and that you are making the right decision for your self, your neighbors, and this country.

A vote for Scott Brown is a vote for keeping your country safe from domestic tyrants.

Obama would be the last person I'd want to show up in this day and age for support. He is a complete FAILURE.

Brown winning the seat will be just the start in turning the Country around and sending a very real message that we DON'T APPROVE what our clueless leader, Obama, is doing.

Obamunism must be stopped!! Our personal freedoms are at stake. The threat of throwing people in jail for failure to purchase health care is unamerican and smacks of dictatorship and communism. Don't be fooled again...Coakley is a rubber stamp. If she wins you will not recognize this country in 5 years. I am praying for a Brown victory.

Pure bull pucky, here's how Republican "logic" works as of it wasn't apparent.

IOKIYAR

It's OK for a Republican administration to have 8 years to completely mess things up but a Democratic administration gets only ONE YEAR to fix it all!

Curt Schilling also told you in 2004 that a second term of GWB was good, was it?

Why we should we trust a Republican will do any different than they have for the last 8 years? We shouldn't, since they haven't changed their spots!

LEts follow their agenda!

Allow for continued unlimited and never discussed War funding.
Cut Taxes.
Do nothing with Healthcare reform.

The results!

Further indebted to China to fund killing overseas.
Less revenue for Government, BIGGER DEFICITS.
More than 45000 dead every year and bigger deficits to pay for healthcare.

Go ahead, trust Republicans Curt Schilling and see the devistation this country goes through.

Wall Street Investors Lavish Scott Brown’s Campaign With Money, Get Out The Vote Operations

...."Major U.S. banks which instigated the financial crisis are set to pay out “record” bonuses and compensation —$145 billion by some estimates. State Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), the Republican candidate running for the special U.S. Senate election next week, announced yesterday that he would oppose the recently announced financial crisis responsibility fee on large banks.

Brown’s defense of the financial industry has not been ignored by Wall Street. Wall Street’s two largest political enforcers are also out fighting to elect him:

– The Wall Street front group FreedomWorks is mobilizing get out the vote efforts for Brown this weekend. FreedomWorks organized the very first tea party protests, and has used its extensive staff and resources to mobilize rallies and advocacy campaigns on behalf of corporate interests. Dick Armey, who as a corporate lobbyist represented AIG, Lehman Brothers, and Merrill Lynch during the bailouit, is the leader of FreedomWorks. FreedomWorks is also funded and chaired by Steve Forbes and Frank Sands of Sands Capital Management.

– The Wall Street front group Club for Growth is strongly “boosting” Brown and is expected to run ads in support for him. According to recent disclosures, the Club for Growth is funded by a $1.4 million dollar donation from investor Stephen Jacksons of Stephens Groups Inc, a $1.4 million dollar donation from broker Richard Gilder, and $210,000-$630,000 donations from at least 10 other investors and financial industry professionals. The Club is also supporting a slate of candidates to repeal health reform, while its other endorsed candidates have opposed a financial truth commission.

According to a ThinkProgress analysis of Brown’s latest Federal Elections Commission disclosures (part 1, part 2, part 3), filed on Jan. 8 and 11, business executives and Wall Street executives have lavished Brown’s campaign coffers with 11th hour contributions:....

....A report on financial industry compensation by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo found that large financial corporations — including Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and Citigroup — spend between 25% to 50% of total revenue on paying out executive compensation. While the finance industry often refuses to offer lines of credit to American businesses struggling in this economy, they operate largely as vehicles to make bankers richer.

Brown casts himself as an everyday man, telling reporters “it’s me against the machine.” In fact, Brown is teaming up with Wall Street bankers to kill financial reform and preserve a system of Bush-era unfettered capitalism."....

Red Cross financial aid Scott Brown voted to kill now assisting Massachusetts relief efforts in Haiti.

...."State Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), the Republican candidate for the special U.S. Senate election Tuesday, voted against a bill to provide financial assistance to 9/11 rescue workers who had volunteered to rush to the site of the twin towers after the terrorist attack in 2001. The measure, which was opposed by only two other legislators in addition to Brown, provided paid “leaves of absence for certain Red Cross employees participating in Red Cross emergencies.” Despite Brown’s efforts to kill the legislation, it passed along overwhelmingly bipartisan lines and is now helping to compensate Massachusetts Red Cross employees currently deploying to Haiti to provide emergency assistance after the devastating earthquake. Asked yesterday by ThinkProgress why he opposed the 2001 measure for rescue workers, Brown stated that he had his “own priorities first” at the time. As ThinkProgress reported, during the same period that Brown opposed the financial aid to 9/11 rescue workers, he sponsored a bill to provide a tax-subsidized bond to build a golf course in his district, and voted for across the board corporate tax subsidies."....

And, Big Insurance Companies and Big Drug Companies are lavishing the Coakley campaign with millions as they are the BIG WINNERS in the Pelosi government take over of Health Care.

Both sides have their agendas. Sadly, as a life long Democrat...the Biggest LIES are coming from the Coakley campaign because the TRUTH is too ugly for her supporters to abide.

Another Democrat drone, prepared to vote "yes" on any proposal to make government bigger and more intrusive, Coakley is programmed to vote for any and all tax-and-spend programs promoted by the national Democratic Party. Yet even Massachusetts voters, finally unwilling to embrace national bankruptcy to finance the bottomless pit demanded by the liberal agenda, have had enough.
