This is just as important as electing President Mitt Romney and moving him into

the White House. 55 GOP Senators would look great but we really need at least 59

U.S. senators. Independent Joe Lieberman will join us in repealing ObamaCare.


Here is the link to the Real Clear Politics Senate Map.

- 59 GOP Senators is possible -

We need to push thru 7 reforms in the 1st week of the Mitt Romney presidency.

1- Approve the Keystone Pipeline

2- Extend the Bush Tax Cuts - no recession - positive GDP growth

3- Drill - Baby - Drill - reduce the price of gas to $2 a gallon - more disposable income

4- Repeal ObamaCare

5- Repeal Dodd / Frank & CFPB

6- Social Security - raise retirement age to 67 just like Canada

7- Tax Repatriation Holiday - Fortune 500 Corportions bring $$$ cash to USA

Are you delusional enough to think Mittens is going to win? And what makes you think that all the members in congress will hold onto their seats? You do know we are voting for more than just the presidency right?

This election will be a referendum on Obama.

Have you noticed that the economy is getting worse?

They won't necessarily vote for Mitt Romney. They will vote against Obama.

There are 33 Senate seats up for election this year.

United States Senate elections, 2012


1. The wild spending needs to be checked.
(already is to a small extent with the House -- thanks all gods !)

2. A second Obama term with a Democrat Congress will send the deficit to $25 trillion in no time flat.

3. They will raise interest rates enough to attract new buyers of U.S. Treasury debt.
(they have already maxed out the limits with the current low rates and full spending)


It is extremely important that Republicans get control of the Congressional committees and get a super majority in the Senate.

Then get the existing wild spending appropriations under control.

Then get some legislation to stop the anti-small business agendas.

A Romney presidency would help the Cabinet departments define a business friendly climate and create jobs.

The damage done in the last 3 1/2 years is unbelievable.

The damage done in the last 3 1/2 years has been severe but it would have been

worse if the US Constitution hadn't slowed Obama down.

We definitely need to move away from the - Fiscal Cliff -.

It would help if we had 59 GOP U.S. Senators leading the way in the senate.

An even bigger delusion is to think Lieberman will vote with anyone. He quit. He's retiring. Good riddance So there goes your plan. Perhaps just a little more research is in order..

We will need 61 GOP senators. It is possible. Look at the map!

That will make the democrats throw a hissy fit.


I can already see them walking out.

Oh, the gop would squeal like pigs if the dems obstructed like they do. Whining double standard clowns. Fortunately for the gop, the dems dont have an authoritarian mindset when it comes to policy or personality (READ: No spine or they respect elections). Personally, I hope the dems have learned from their counterparts and the gridlock continues. I dont think weve had enough disfunction that effects enough people yet. I think we can do much worse and we will. Cheers!

Maybe you need a history lesson. Dems are just as filibuster happy as Reps. So apparently your theory Dems aren't authoritarian is wishful thinking and propaganda, not reality based.

The first thing you would want to do is serve big oil?


2- Extend the Bush Tax Cuts - no recession - positive GDP growth


The second thing you would do is serve the wealthy


3- Drill - Baby - Drill - reduce the price of gas to $2 a gallon - more disposable income


The third thing you would do is to serve big oil again


4- Repeal ObamaCare


...... not cool!


5- Repeal Dodd / Frank & CFPB


Sure get rid of regulation so they can tank the economy again.


6- Social Security - raise retirement age to 67 just like Canada


I thought it was already 67??


7- Tax Repatriation Holiday - Fortune 500 Corportions bring $$$ cash to USA


Again suck up to corporations much???

Here are some common graphs ....

Note what happened when Democrat control of Congress started in Jan 2007.

Then note what happened when that Congressional control remained with a Democrat President in Jan 2009.

You believe what you want, the economy crashed under Bush, I remember reading that jobs may never come back way before Obama got elected.

Are you aware the great depression also happened under a republican president, and we went 20 years without electing a republican for president, but this time around they formed the tea party.

The liberals are clueless. They have no idea how to get out of this economic malaise.

Some are suggesting that we just choose to go over the - Fiscal Cliff -.

----------
I think their master plan is a - Nationwide Value Added Tax -.


Some want -another stimulus - to bail out the bankrupt cities.


Where is the growth?

The GDP rate is predicted to be less than 1%.

It turns out that socialism doesn't work.

We are going to switch back to capitalism and then see what happens.

I would not call a graph that chooses only the month of October for each year..."Common"...

I'd call it desperate and dishonest...

Ya know...the conservative "The Hill" ran a survey that they tried very hard to spin as anti Obama, but failed.

This particular result goes to show that Americans know better...

57% of respondants thought that Congressional Republicans have done the wrong things to help the economy and have actually slowed the economy down!

53% of centrists said Obama has taken the right actions as president to boost the economy, compared with 38 percent who said he had taken the wrong steps.

79% of centrist voters said Republicans had slowed the economy by taking wrong actions. Only 13% of centrists credited GOP lawmakers with policies that have helped the economy.

thehill.com...

You can post a graph of unemployment and hope folks don't read the fine print..."the month of October for each year"...

But Americans aren't as dumb as the GOP hopes... all the money, propaganda and voter suppression in the world can't buy the GOP more time to loot and pillage.

The - independents - will run towards Mitt Romney when the GDP falls below 1%.

The - independents - will fire Obama and hire President Mitt Romney.

Obama has - zero - solutions and tons of negative ads.

Not exactly a winning combination.

The presidential debates are going to be a disaster for Obama.

80% of centrists think the GOP in Congress actually slowed the economic recovery....and I think they are right..good luck in Nov.

The - independents- will not re - elect a loser who gave us a GDP of less than 1%.

Everyone knows Obama has wrapped a wet blanket around free market capitalism

with his unending regulations.

The time has come for a change.

The latest Rasmussen Polls have:

Romney 46%

Obama 43%

- Obama is doomed -

This reminds me of when you were convinced Sarah Palin was going to be President!

Here, let's try a little reality....

Of the top 15 polls ranked for accuracy...Rasmussen ranks 15th.
www.fivethirtyeight.com...

SurveyUSA? It's in the top 3 for accuracy and does more polls than Rasmussen..Mitt 40%, Obama 46%
www.surveyusa.com...

Or try this if you want to consider reality...

The electoral map...

Probability of Reaching 270

Democrats 93%

Republicans 7%

www.270towin.com...

Or Vegas odds?



the Democrats and Obama hold a firm lead over the Republicans and it's not even close... Right now, a $1 bet on the Dems only pays $.59 versus a $1 bet on the Republicans that would pay $1.40

www.politicalbettingodds.com...

The irony is that the same thing that makes the GOP think they are going to win is the same thing that ensures that they will lose....REALITY DISCONNECT.

Americans are not going to elect the King of 1 percenters who promises a return to the heady days of of the 1% gambling with other people's life savings and getting bailouts for Wall Street.

No...the GDP is not "predicted" to be less than 1%...

BUT it was NEGATIVE 9% when the last Republican left the Whitehouse..

Since then there has been 11% growth...
