Despite all the evidence to the contrary the OLM wants you to believe this race is over. It is becoming increasingly clear, they want you to stay home on November 4th. This election will be decided the same as all the others before it...by the number of people who actually turn out to vote. This is why I hate Polls. The OLM uses polls along with a number of other techniques they've honed over the years, to influence public opinion. They tell you Barack Obama has already won, and it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. We're too smart for them.
They have already started talking about McCain's end. In some cases getting way ahead of themselves. A few of the OLM have already started taking shots at specific states. Several outlets reported McCain was pulling out of Colorado citing an "anonymous GOP" tipster. I guess that tipster wasn't at one of the Three Record Breaking Sarah Palin rallies in the past week. What other reason would a "News" organization falsely report about McCains standing in Colorado, if not to suppress the Vote of McCain supporters in the state? Michelle Malkin gave her take this morning on her blog. Where is the ACLU on this one?
Oh but when Florida tried to pass a law merely requiring voters to show a valid ID to vote....cries of Disenfranchisement and Voter Suppression from every rooftop. Right because it's 'threatening' to ask for a Driver's License. Hey call me crazy but if you can pull out your ID to buy cigarettes and booze, you can do it to Vote. This is no brainer but cries from the left indicated that Black Floridians had an unnatural fear of showing ID. Must make it very hard for those who enjoy an occasional cocktail. To be honest when I first heard this story I couldn't believe it. I just assumed anyone who voted had to show ID when they got to the polling place. Requiring ID is not voter suppression it's common sense.
I wrote a week ago about the enormous Sarah Palin Rally that took place here in Richmond, that was under reported by the local media and barely mentioned by the OLM. I told you about the other rally held earlier in the day down in Hampton Roads, with totals estimated around 50,000. Most of the people I met at the Rally were Small Business owners, all of which had a personal interest in the election of the McCain/Palin ticket. I've heard the OLM refer to the 'enthusiasm' factor, but enthusiasm has nothing on people who are used to just getting it done. That's what small business owners do. And they'll be out Voting for McCain before they open their doors that day, and no one will have to bus them to the polling stations. But don't hold your breath waiting for the OLM to do a story about the strong support of McCain Palin amongst Small Business Owners... the good news is it doesn't matter if the OLM reports it or not, they will be voting for McCain.
The surreal picture of Obama's great speech under the Arches in St. Louis caught all the medias attention, but when Sarah Palin addressed a similar size crowd at the Villages in Florida, the OLM practically denied it ever happened, even though they witnessed it first hand! I don't deny that Obama draws a crowd, but McCain and Palin are breaking records everywhere they visit drawing anywhere from 10,000 to 25,000 supporters at each stop. These supporters are ready to fight for America even if that means taking on the OLM themselves. Byron York of The Nation Review, wrote about John McCain and His Army of Joes:
In the audience Saturday, there were plenty of people who were mad about it. There was real anger at this rally, but it wasn’t, as some erroneous press reports from other McCain rallies have suggested, aimed at Obama. It was aimed at the press. And that’s where Tito Munoz came in.
After McCain left, as the crowd filed out, Munoz made his way to an area near some loudspeakers. He attracted a few reporters when he started talking loudly, in heavily-accented English, about media mistreatment of Wurzelbacher. (It was clear that Spanish was Munoz’s native language, and he later told me he was born in Colombia.) When I first made my way over to him, Munoz thought I was there to give him the third degree.“Are you going to check my license, too?” he asked me. “Are you going to check my immigration status? I’m ready, I have everything here. Whatever you want, I have it. I have my green card, I have my passport — “I was a little surprised. Did Munoz really bring his papers with him to a McCain rally? I asked.“Yeah, I have my papers right here,” he said. “I’m an American citizen. Right here, right here.” With that, he produced a U.S. passport, turned it to the page with his picture on it, and thrust it about an inch from my nose. “Right here,” he said. “In your face.”
Munoz said he owned a small construction business. “I have a license, if you guys want to check,” he said.Someone asked why Munoz had come to the rally. “I support McCain, but I’ve come to face you guys because I’m disgusted with you guys,” he said. “Why the hell are you going after Joe the Plumber? Joe the Plumber has an idea. He has a future. He wants to be something else. Why is that wrong? Everything is possible in America. I made it. Joe the Plumber could make it even better than me. . . . I was born in Colombia, but I was made in the USA!"
I would highly recommend reading the entire article as Tito goes on to have an amazing exchange with a very Liberal writer that is beyond enjoyable. It brings a tear to your eye!! Tito is the man! And he's voting for McCain too!
One of the other dirty little secrets the OLM doesn't want you to know about is movement within the Democratic party to support McCain. It wasn't just Joe Lieberman who jumped on the McCain train after Hillary was put out to pasture by Obama and his followers. One of these groups is known as PUMA, or "Party Unity My Ass"this group is made up of registered Democrats who have decided to break with their Party and support John McCain and Sarah Palin, you can check out their website here. The PUMA's are serious about putting Country before Party, they've organized their own Pac and are currently placing ads in support of McCain. There are other groups, Democrats for McCain and most recently some very brave Feminist leaders have endorsed the McCain Palin ticket. So whether the OLM chooses to report this amazing shift to support for McCain or not, those PUMA's will be voting for McCain.
I am 100% convinced the OLM is attempting to suppress the Republican Vote. They want you to feel depressed and defeated. Don't let them get to you. It's not real. Remember even while Obama's surrogates in the Media are telling you that it's a done deal, he is still scrambling to buy more advertising, now planning a 30 Minute infomercial on all major networks. Does that sound like some one who thinks he's got a 10 point lead or whatever made up number they chose today? Of course not.
The election is two weeks away so expect the OLM frenzy to escalate as the Big Day approaches. They will pull out every trick in their bag, to try and keep you from pulling the lever for John McCain, no matter what You hear, VOTE. If they say McCain is trailing by 20 points in your state, Vote anyway. Then let the chips fall where they may. John McCain and many other brave men like him sacrificed so that your Vote would be counted in free elections. Don't let the OLM or anyone else ever tell you differently.
