The midterms are only a couple of weeks away and it is time to get serious. This is the time to take our stand against those who are intent on turning our free nation completely into a European style nanny state. Polls are tightening up as they always do this close to election time.
It’s not good enough this time simply JUST to cast your own ballot. This time we’ve got to get our friends and neighbors to the polls. Remind your facebook friends, tweet it, chat it….whatever it takes to get the word out. To help you out, here are a few different voting guides put out by different conservative groups for you to look at.
Let’s get out there and throw the bums out!

Voter’s Guide for the Serious Christian

SEIU (Service Employees International Union) thought that they could buy the Democratic Senate primary race in Arkansas. They thought that by dumping $10 million dollars into the state of Arkansas that they could simply decide who would be the candidate on the Democrat’s ticket.
They nearly did……………Blanche Lincoln only won the run-off by a few percentage points.
SEIU has had the largest presence in the White House with their former leader, Andy Stern, visiting the White House more than any other person in Obama’s first year in office. The power and influence that they have over the President is dangerous and obvious in the progressive, liberal policies that they, and consequently the President have espoused. All you have to do is look at the President’s domestic agenda to see the fingerprints of SEIU.
I don’t support Blanche Lincoln at all. However, I am glad that she won the run-off. Arkansas elections should be decided by Arkansans, not by D.C. based big unions. Maybe…(but I doubt it)…they will think twice before trying to buy the next election. The positive outcome in all of this? SEIU and the others are ten million dollars lighter…and that, my friends, is priceless!
Mid-term elections are generally low key events. Voter turnout is often low and the electorate could be termed as, well, “sleepy” in their response. November 2010 is different, however, and even the primaries leading up to the November election have a real feel of importance.
Arkansas has already started the early voting for their primary which is on the 18th of May. There are many good candidates and it can be a little confusing. It is so important, though, to educate ourselves about the positions that these candidates have. We need real conservatives who are willing to stand up and be counted. Those types are few and far between, but they are out there. So, what can we do to find out where these candidates stand? Here’s a few ideas:
1. Get a copy of the ballet to find out who you will be voting on.
2. Go to their websites and find out what their positions are.
3. If they have a legislative track record, look at their key votes on the issues that matter to you.
4. Use resources such as interviews that they have given to the press.
5. Call their campaign office if you need an answer to what their position is on an issue.
6. Make absolutely sure that you are registered to vote.
So, what’s at stake? The future of our country! Right now, the left is pushing as fast and as far as they can to move our country closer to socialism. We need to send a powerful message in 2010 in order to even slow them down. So, if you love your country, take the time to get involved and don’t just stop with yourself. Talk to your friends. Take people to the polls who have a hard time getting out. The ability to vote is our constitutional responsibility and our privilege. This year, it’s the way to save our country. This year it matters more than ever. Don’t forget to VOTE!
