Self-interest drives this Congress
By Armand C. Hale

In a move exemplifies the nature of this Congress, they voted to break and get home and campaign. In a vote reeking all which is wrong with Congress, Pelosi once again put her political interests above the American people's and voted in getting back to the respective states for campaigning.

The Congress has but one basic function in life; to pass an annual budget and the spending bills for agency operations. They have failed miserably in this effort by passing only two appropriation bills in the House and none in the Senate. To make sure they got out on time to go home and campaign, they worked at light speed to pass a continuing resolution bill in record time. They only worked fast because Congress has a vested interest in the outcome. Going home to campaign!

Work extremely important to the taxpayers has been kicked down the road for after the Nov 2nd elections. What does this say? The controlling party is more interested in maintaining power than working on behalf of the electorate which put them in office. If they can kick their work down the road, the American people need to kick them all out of office to replace them with people who value true Americans and what their interests are.

Here are some factoids to read, digest and pass on to all concerned people of small government, liberty with justice for all to include the unborn!

New Poll Shows Iowa Judges Headed for Election Loss — Experts "Stunned"

No Iowa judge has ever lost a judicial retention election in living memory. Former Supreme Court Justice O'Connor who reaffirmed Roe v. Wade and the slaughter of innocent babies told the Iowa people they had no right to do it. But at NOM they specialize in doing what those experts say can't be done. And guess what folks? A shocking new poll on the front page of the Des Moines Register shows for the first time in history, a month before the election, the judicial election race is a toss-up. Source: Brian S.

Is G.O.P. Pledge "Socialism Lite"?


Please hear the special report Ron De Jong & Steve Elliott recorded on the House G.O.P.'s "Pledge to America": http://www.grassfire.net/r.asp?U=33138&RID=25818461. Does the G.O.P. get it? Or is what they are proposing socialism "lite"? I credit Andrew McCarthy's piece in the National Review for raising many of these questions. Let's keep an eye on this!

Liberty and Socialism Collide In Nevada


Nevada has become the most important test for liberty in this election. Harry Reid led the charge for socialism in the Senate, jamming radical legislation for Pelosi and Obama.

Barney Frank Is Afraid and Blaming You


Barney Frank is running scared! Barney Frank is blaming everybody but himself. To figure out why he is a target across the country, Barney should look no further than his involvement in the collapse of the housing market via his friends at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
