RANDOM SHOTS - Republicans Must Vote, Madonna and Kelly Clarkson Should Shut Up, and Much More!


FIRST SHOT!

Number One Reason To Vote: Liberals Are Voting In Huge Numbers

Democrats Have Early Voting Lead in More States Than Republicans.

If you need a reason to get out the vote for Mitt Romney, this is the best that I've heard in a while now. Liberal Obama supporters already have a lead in the race through early voting.

Don't let them steal the election for four more years of Obama, please tell your Conservative friends to vote!

Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus said on CNN yesterday that Obama is ahead in early voting.

“What they’re not telling you is that they are a fraction of where they were in 2008,” he said. “We’re far ahead of where we were in 2008.”

Democrats say they have an early vote lead in many of the swing states and that shows the president’s supporters are motivated.

“Mitt Romney says he has momentum, but it’s simply not showing up where it counts, at the polls,” said Adam Fetcher, an Obama re-election spokesman. “We’re outperforming our early vote margins in key states compared to 2008.”
In two of the most competitive states in the U.S. presidential race - Iowa and Nevada - Democrats are building a significant advantage in early voting.

Who has the edge is more muddled in the bigger swing states of Ohio and Florida, while Republicans have a narrow lead in Colorado.

Early, in-person voting started in Florida over the weekend and dozens of Democrats in Tallahassee yesterday marched five blocks from a church to an early-voting site chanting, “Vote early.”

Almost 14 million people have already cast ballots nationwide, according to the United States Elections Project at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. Both

If current trends for ballots requested and ballots returned remain unchanged through this week, then Obama’s advantage could become almost insurmountable for Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

In Colorado, Florida, Iowa and North Carolina, Obama banked so many early votes in 2008 that he won those states even though he lost the Election Day votes there, according to voting data compiled by the Associated Press.

As for Nevada balloting? So far in Nevada, where an even larger proportion of the vote has been cast than in Iowa when compared to the 2008 vote, Democrats have accounted for 45.4 percent, according to the Nevada secretary of state’s office.

Republicans have only accounted for 37.2 percent and independent voters for 17.4 percent.

Heavily Democratic Clark County, Nevada’s most populous and where Las Vegas is located, has seen people registered with the president’s party cast 121,298 early and absentee ballots, compared to 81,512 for Republicans, through Oct. 27.

As for the East Coast?

Well, although Hurricane Sandy’s path toward the East Coast already has altered the final days of candidate travel in the presidential race, it should have minimal impact on early voting.

Predictions are that other than Florida and North Carolina, which aren’t directly in the storm’s path, the swing states with the greatest tradition and activity for early voting aren’t along the East Coast.

Among swing states with early voting and party-affiliation voter registration, Democrats have their biggest advantage in North Carolina, where the party held its national convention and people can register and vote in one stop at various locations.

The popularity of early voting is growing nationally, so Republicans and Democrats alike are seeing increased activity from four years ago. Both parties are working to bank as many votes as possible so they can focus on late-deciders and others in the final week.

Republicans hope that low-propensity voters less likely to show up on Election Day, do show up and vote for Mitt Romney.
I hope so as well! We have to defeat Obama at the ballot box.
If not, we will only have more of the last four years of a rotten economy, increased racial tension, soaring food and gas prices, increase in home foreclosures, an increased terrorist threat, more out of control spending, more unqualified liberal judges put on the Supreme Court, lies and hate and division. 
  
Yes, we need to get Obama out of office. We need to get out the vote!

Chicago Homicides Twice The Number Of Those Killed In Afghanistan and Iraq This Year

So when someone says they live in a war-zone, don't think Afghanistan or Iraq - think Chicago!

At least four people were shot and killed, and three others wounded over the last 24 hours. Among the victims, a 68-year-old man shot to death in his home on South LaSalle Street.

This is Chicago’s 435th homicide of the year. That equals the city’s entire death toll from 2011.

It happened in the 9400 block of South LaSalle. Chicago police haven’t publicly identified the victim yet.

Chicago ties homicide total from last year with fatal home invasion STORY: Chicago ties homicide total from last year with fatal home invasion

The Chicago Tribune reports the man put up a fence around the home, to keep local drug dealers from using his property.

No word whether the fence had anything to do with the shooting, but either way Chicago is still more dangerous than Iraq and Afghanistan combined!

No kidding folks, Chicago has had almost twice the number of deaths versus the number of troops that have been killed in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq combined in 2012.


FOURTH SHOT!

Madonna booed after touting Obama in New Orleans concert


During Saturday night's performance, the old singer thought she was pretty hip with she asked, "Who's registered to vote?"

Then she added, "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama."

That drew boos and fans walking out of her concert! No kidding!

Her touting Obama over Republican Mitt Romney drew such a surprised reaction to Madonna that she quickly followed her endorsement with, "Seriously, I don't care who you vote for ... Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote."

Madonna is often outspoken. Some Colorado fans, mindful of a mass shooting there, complained she used a fake gun to shoot a masked gunman in a recent concert act in Denver. Madonna's concert in Paris in July drew ire when a video showed a swastika on a politician's forehead.

Don't you just love it when Hollywood types tell folks how to act and think, especially politically, and it kicks them in the ass in return. I do.

Is Singer Kelly Clarkson another Dixie Chick?

Famed Singer Kelly Clarkson Switches Vote to Obama… Because He’s a ‘Great Guy’

Famed Singer Kelly Clarkson Switches Vote From Libertarian Ron Paul to Obama Because Hes a Great Guy
Singer Kelly Clarkson says she plans to vote for President Barack Obama in November partly because he is a “great guy,” making a seemingly drastic swing after originally supporting the very Libertarian Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) for president.

For some strange reason she calls herself a "Republican at heart," but the singer and native Texan told the Daily Star that she has been "reading online about the debates" and what she has discovered has apparently made her an Obama supporter.

"I’m probably going to vote for Obama again…I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married," Clarkson said.

In addition to her support for gay marriage, Clarkson also bought into the Obama campaign's narrative that Romney is waging a "war on women," saying  "I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s."

As if anyone wants to!

She later added, "Obama is a great guy. I’ve met him and I’m a fan of Michelle, too."

In December 2011, Clarkson somehow ignited controversy by simply voicing her support for Paul.
“I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t,” Clarkson said on Twitter.

Some of the pop singer’s followers accused Paul of being racist and homophobic, referencing newsletters that were sent out using his name in 1980s.

She later felt obligated to address the backlash and tweeted the following message:

“I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights. I like Ron Paul because he believes in less government and letting the people (all of us) make the decisions and mold our country. That is all. Out of all of the Republican nominees, he’s my favorite.”

Yup, that's right, we have another wannabe celebrity out there supporting Obama because she's swallowed all the hype that the Obama campaign has been putting out about wanting to get rid of women's rights, bringing back segregation, enslaving the poor and poisoning your water.

If someone really believe any of that, then they should certainly vote for Obama. It'll only natural that the ignorant would vote for the Obama! It goes right to the heart of who supports Obama!

Memorial Honoring Confederate General, a member of Ku Klux Klan, prompts Lawsuit

A Virginia company has filed suit after its construction of a monument in Alabama honoring a noted Confederate general, who also was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, was halted.

According to the Selma Times-Journal, the federal suit, filed by KTK Mining of Richmond, says the company got the necessary permits to do the work on the monument in Old Live Oak Cemetery honoring Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest.

But now the City of Selma, Alabama, has suspended the permits when the project drew protests.

The KTK Mining company's suit says the suspension was done without prior notice to KTK Mining.

The city has filed a response saying its actions were reasonable and it has legal immunity.

So since when is there "legal immunity" after you issued the proper permits to do the job? If the City of Selma pulled them afterwards because of political pressure then that's their problem!

KTK Mining has also filed claims with the city of Selma, seeking a total of $600,000.

And yes, the City of Selma ought to pay up!

They are not immune to a lawsuit just because they say they are. They have a legal responsibility to reimburse the KTK Mining company for their loses - especially since their work was halted because of politics.
