Vote 2010

Two years ago I wrote the following

So I just wanted to remind everyone that the fight for American values is not over, rather it has just begun. We can not give up hope, we must stand together stronger than ever. All that is required for evil to prosper is for good men (and women) to do nothing. So do something! Keep your voice, shares your values, stand up for what is right, no matter how hard it gets.

And you guys did NOT disappoint! Two years later and the Tea Party has blossomed, launching a new generation of conservatives into the public spotlight; Republicans will take over the House by midnight, and might take over the Senate as well! Gubernatorial races are running strong red and things are looking bright indeed for the future of our nation!

But it still isn’t over- YOU MUST GO VOTE!

Hundreds of thousands of brave men and women have died so that you could cast your ballot. So go vote, and PLEASE- vote CONSERVATIVE!!!!

Want to get involved in politics, but don’t know where to start?

David Melville

I spoke with David Melville, who is running against incumbent John Fleming for Congress, tonight at the mayoral forum.

I asked him a few questions and a few of them I felt deserved to be shared.

When asked about Nancy Pelosi and whether or not he would vote for her as speaker of the house if elected, Melville would not rule out voting for her. All I could get him to commit to was voting for the most “moderate” of the choices. Somehow I don’t think Mrs. Pelosi could ever be described as “moderate.”

I also asked him about the bailouts, and while he said he didn’t agree with bailing out major corporations, he had no problem with the government lending companies money- as long as they pay it back. This seems kind of like a double answer- even if it is a loan, isn’t it still a bailout? GM was bailed out- and they paid it back. It is still unjustified government interference in the capitalistic market place.

And finally, I asked him about ObamaCare- and he said he liked the bill “AS IS” and would vote to fully fund it. He emphasized to me that his opponent wanted to repeal the whole thing, which coincidentally is exactly what I want to happen.

So while I apprecitate his willingness to answer my questions, he has only reinforced my belief that Congressman Fleming is doing a great job and will 100% get my vote in the November 2nd Election.

 

On a side note, early voting is now going on downtown at the Registrar of Voters. If there is the possibility that you might miss the Nov. 2nd election, please go vote now- the future of our nation, state, and city hang in the balance.

Election Results

So this weekend was certainly interesting! Let’s look at the results:

State Legislature District 5

Lawyer Alan Seabaugh defeated political newcomer and banker Harold Turner. Things seemed to turn ugly at the end, but I think that the voters ultimately made the right choice.

Lt. Governor

Republican Secretary of State Jay Dardenne came out on top of a very large field, with Democrat Caroline Fayard taking the second spot on the Nov 2 ballot. Sammy Kershaw made a good showing, but surprisingly dismal returns doomed State GOP Chairman Roger Villere.

Shreveport Mayor

After a fake poll had Wooley falling fast to Caddo Commissioner David Cox- the election predictions were all up in the air. But many predicted from the start that it would be a Wooley/ Glover showdown. And thats exactly what we are going to get. Look for this one to get really hot real fast!

On another note- Parker Ward proved my prediction wrong, I said he would get 100 votes, he got 175.

Council Races

A

C O Simpkins will face Rose Wilson McCulloch.

B

Sheeva Sims, who lost by 6 votes in 2006, will face former Scary Mary staffer Jeff Everson.

C

Republican Oliver Jenkins blew independent Jake Toloso out of the water with 84% of the votes.

D

Conservative Independent Phillip Templeton came out on top and will face Michael Corbin in the run off.

Yours truly garnered 13% of the vote, and would like to thank all of her supporters very much for all their kind words, good wishes, and especially for their votes!

G

Sam Jenkins defeated Jerry White with 71% of the votes.

Look for things to heat up over the next month, and don’t forget about the midterm elections where Congressman Fleming and Senator Vitter will be up for reelection!
