It is looking up, isn’t it?

Acclamation:

On Sunday The Des Moines Register, Cedar Rapids Gazette, and Quad City Times and the Sioux City Journal all endorsed the Republican candidate.  In 2008, Romney was endorsed only by The Fort Dodge Messenger and Omaha World Herald.  The final tally means Romney has now secured an unprecedented sweep of endorsements from the six largest papers in the crucial swing-state.

The accomplishment is unprecedented for many reasons.  For one, it’s the first time all the papers have collectively endorsed the same candidate in over 70 years. Four years ago, candidate Obama received warm endorsements from three of the newspapers, and Romney is the first Republican to be endorsed by the Register in 40 years.

Know Mitt Romney!

This is from Bookworm Room’s blog. I repost it in its entirety. Think about it. I’m going to vote on my way home tonight.

I’m not sure I buy the “Mitt was sent by God” part, but otherwise I think this letter, forwarded to me by my Dad, is worth sharing:

This article is for those who are just simply not enthused about voting for Mitt Romney. You may not be thrilled with the idea of voting for Barack Obama, and in fact, you may be repulsed by it. However, for any number of reasons, you feel uncomfortable with a vote for Romney, and are considering sitting this one out or voting for a third-party candidate. It could be the Mormonism of Gov. Romney you do not like, or it could be his various position changes over the years (most notably on abortion). Particularly in states like Nevada, Ohio…

Some deep questions to be answered her. ‘Should Christian U.S. citizens vote as a matter of stewarding the power and privilege they have in a process that impacts those who cannot represent themselves?’

More Than Serving Tea

Next week I will vote for the first time in a presidential election. I became a naturalized U.S. citizen two years ago, giving up my Korean passport, my (not)green card, and pledging allegiance after having lived in the  U.S. since the spring of 1971.

I actually studied for my citizenship exam out of fear and habit – fear that the wrong answer would mean restarting a process that had cost money, time and emotions, and habit because I grew understanding not studying was not an option. The process actually took years for me, wrestling through ambivalence, frustration, grief and gain to get to a point where the privileges, advantages and necessities of becoming a citizen and my faith as a Christian pushed me over the edge.

At the heart of my decision wasn’t the right to vote. It was an issue of integrity. As a writer/blogger/speaker who addresses issues of…

Some noteworthy figures to note before the elections.

AirModal Independent

Those that voted for Obama did not realize that when you voted for Hope & Change you were voting for the hope that he would leave you with some change… in your pocket. How did that work out for you?

  • Unemployment still in double digits and worsening
  • 80% of college grads cannot find work in chosen profession
  • Over 40% of Americans now on federal assistance (an all-time high)
  • National debt UP 60% since taking office (over $16 trillion)
  • An 84% failure rate on “green” taxpayer investments that most taxpayers opposed
  • Average American income DOWN over $4000 per year
  • Home values still DOWN more than 30% nationally
  • Businesses are closing and investors are leaving America
  • Obama has sent more jobs overseas than all of the last five presidents combined

Inflation is the most punishing tax of all – printing and borrowing 42 cents for every dollar the government spends is suicidal.

After this president, the public could do without this senseless publicity on the ‘Man’ & not the ‘president’. Just look at how misleading it has been thus far.
