As we wind down toward the end of Election 2012, it is important to remember that your vote matters. The top of the ticket in Texas, Romney-Ryan and Cruz will be fine, but down the ballot your participation is critical.
The Democrats have an extensive GOTV program in the major Texas counties and there are critical races that will be determined like Dr. Mark Shelton in Fort Worth for State Senate District 10, Congressman Francisco Canseco in the Texas 23rd District, Randy Weber for Congress in the Texas 14th District, and the county-wide races, especially in Harris County, with Mike Anderson for District Attorney, Robert Talton for County Attorney, Louis Guthrie for Sheriff, and Mike Sullivan for Tax Assessor, where the voting is expected to be close between the parties.
So on Tuesday, make it your first priority to vote the entire ballot as we don't want to forget our fine judicial candidates at the end of the ballot.
Is Obama's Ineptitude
Now Surfacing In Sandy Effort?
Does it seem to you like it does me that the Obama administration was fist-bumping on its Sandy efforts before they did much of anything? That's like celebrating before you score the touchdown, not after! Just look at Fox News, FEMA was not prepared for this storm.
Could the photo-op rescue efforts only be designed to assist Obama's reelection efforts? The American people, if they bother to look, are being shown in the last few weeks that this President isn't getting the job done. What is happening is the same thing being done about the Benghazi massacre, which is spin, cover-up, misinformation or just simply ignoring the truth.
WE CANNOT STAND FOUR MORE YEARS OF OBAMA'S RULE!
