Woof, The cleansing is coming. America will rid itself of the filth of the Democrats brought by Pelosi, Reid, Obama, Dodd, Schumer Frank, and Crowd. America will also replace the Rino Country Club Republicans that simply "Go along to Get Along". Arizona let John McBeerCan slip by, but he spent over twenty million in the primary. Few will escape the cleansing.

A quote from o-bribe-a's bible, Rules for Radicals.......
It is not enough just to elect your candidates. You must keep the pressure on.

Voters must be the ones that keep the newly elected in line and call them on every move towards the same old ways as the career politicians.

Voters must stay active in government.....not just at election time.

Has the time come when crooked, self serving politicians will start to listen to the people?

If our elected officials will not do our bidding, I advocate that we have an armed insurrection and take by force what they have denied us.

So, Alaska sets well with an outsider coming in andtaking over their GOP ? It won't happen here in Kentucky, evidently. The Nutty Professor has won the GOP nomination for Senate over the chosen one, Trey Greyson, who was hand picked by Mitch McConnell to take Jim Bunnings place in Washington. McConnell won't back Rand Paul, the Niutty Professor, which has a lot of Republicans here climbing on the Jack Conway ticket. I am a registered Independent and have been since 1980. I am hard stressed on whether or not to vote in Nobember. We have no Moderate Candidate for Senate here at all. Of course, that is the case almost everywhere except Florida where Crist could take that Senate seat ? There has been a rash of Incumbents losing their seats in their Primary elections. Almost all of those are Republicans. With the exception of Spectre in Pennsylvania who turned Liberal last year. But, he was still elected by the GOP, and has lost that seat in the Ptimaries. I see a lot of cheering going on already in early September now by the Republicans about Novemember, but many of heir chosen Candidates have been taken out already ? So what are they cheering about ? Their base is literally split in two now with the Tea Party holding many GOP nominations. Many angry old-time Republicans are deciding to vote the other way.

I know that 52% of the registered voters in Alaska are registered Independents (as I am). That is why I am posting here to see how true Alaskans feel about this years Midterms. I also know by the polls there in Alaska that the majority of Alaskans don't like Sarah Palin and call her "The Quitter". Will this sway the majority of Alaska's voters away from Joe Miller ?

Murkowski has other things in mind. She has a lot of campaign money. What is she going to do with that. I dont think she has been around long enough to be grandmothered in keeping those funds. There is something up. We will have to wait see.

Whatever you believe for freedom, there must be another election after the first. If the old repub party does not give us the payoff because of their corruption it might take a few election cycles to get rid of them if they do not destroy everything from their power base.

You won't see anyone publicly asking the Maggot Obama to campaign for them because his stench is as visible as pig pen.

Or a Quitter from Quitter'sville.

Is her exbrother-in-law still a State Trooper ?

The legacy senator from AK is just the latest defective RINO culled from the herd. The next couple of cycles should see the purging of the twin Harpies from Maine and L. "Gramnesty" as well. One can only hope! The filthy anti-American socialists are in full retreat and those GOP-ers on the fence will get the 'house' dropped on them for sure. Long live the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy!

This, after the Drive-by media has been reporting that she was winning? I guess the public is getting wise to the Democrats.

The one that lost wasn't a Tea Party candidate. Try to keep up or zip it.

So far ... the only ones being throwed out ... are incumbent Republicans ? They are gone for sure, whether or not the Nutjobs that beat them in their primaries get elected or not.

What does tha say about the state of the GOP ?

As and Independent, I'm just curious, imquiring minds want to know. And I am sure glad this Tea Party bunch took over the GOP and not my Party !
