Presidential Primaries Coming Up!

A quick reminder, state presidential primaries are coming up starting next week. This upcoming Presidential election involves a number of very serious issues. I ask each of you to spend a little time over the next few days and research each candidate and their stance on the issues.
  • Are you pro-democracy and anti-socialism? Then stay away from the Democrats.
  • Are you pro-abortion, pro-big government, anti-military, and anti-second amendment? Then vote for one of the Democrats.
  • Are you pro-democracy, pro-life, anti-big government, pro-military, pro-second amendment . . . then vote for a Republican.
Other than that, you need to choose from the vast field of candidates, of which there are many. I've already made my choice and am voting for Mitt Romney. Have you made your choice yet? Candidate and issue rundowns are on the right-hand side of my blog. You're welcome to take a look there.

It is one of the sweetest privileges Americans have, to elect their leaders. My father, robbed of all his freedoms, when he was a child, by the Nazis constantly spoke to us, schools and churches across the nation about that time in his life and the incredible freedom and responsibility Americans have. Here are some dates, check and see if I have the date of your state presidential primary. Almost everyone has moved their primaries up . . . so make sure you are registered to vote and cast your vote for your presidential nominee.

Sidenote: Why, when their hope for Pakistan was assassinated are her followers doing this:
One man was killed in a shootout between police and protesters in Tando Allahyar, a town 120 miles north of Karachi, Pakistan's commercial hub, said Mayor Kanwar Naveed. Four others were killed in Karachi, two were killed elsewhere in the southern Sindh province and two in Lahore, police said.

Karachi shopkeepers quickly shuttered their stores as protesters burned vehicles, a gas station and tires on the roads, said Fayyaz Leghri, a local police official. Gunmen shot and wounded two police officers, he said.

Bhutto's supporters in many towns burned banks, shops and state-run grocery stores. Some torched ruling party election offices, according to Pakistani media. (MSNBC)
They turn on each other, on their political opponents, on the government . . . I don't know if Musharraf had anything to do with the assassination or not. What I do know is that Al Qaida and Taliban leaders have repeatedly threatened Bhutto with death. They have proven, over and over, that they always carry out their mad, horrific and decidedly anti-Allah schemes. So why, may I ask, have the people of Pakistan imploded rather than cleaning house. Capture and punish on Al Qaida and all Taliban . . . that'll be start. Then understand the democratic process and push it forward rather than immediately sinking into a barbaric past where death and mayhem rule.
