Be the Wave! by American Elephant

Don’t sit on the beach and watch the wave, BE the wave! Turn our edge into a tsunami!

VOTE! This election is all about getting out the vote. Help do it. Call up Republicans you know, or Republican-leaning independents, and say, “hey, let’s go vote together!”. Particularly if you suspect they might skip going to the polls for any reason. Call up ALL your Republican and Independent friends and ask them if they’ve voted. If they haven’t, offer to drive them to the polls. Or better yet, get in your car and go pick them up. Drag them by the hair if necessary.

Don’t wear anything that could be remotely deemed political to the polls. One woman was turned away from the polls because she was wearing a shirt that said, “Vote the Bible.” Democrat poll watchers will be on hand trying every trick in the book to keep Republicans from casting ballots.

Have your camera phone or cameras with you when you go to the polls. Record any shenanigans you may see, report them to the poll-watchers, AND to True the Vote’s National Election Integrity Hotline at 1-855-444-6100. I thoroughly expect a vast increase in Democrat voter intimidation, fraud, and electioneering tactics. Be ready to record it; you have the right. If you see something illegal or suspect, and no one present will stop it, call the police.

And vote Republican in ALL Senate races. We must take majority control of the Senate if we are to overturn Obamacare! Indeed, vote a straight Republican ticket. This is a transformational election, our country is dangerously close to that tipping point Benjamin Franklin warned us would herald the end of the Republic. We must not only take back control, we must reverse course.

And pray! Mitt Romney must win this election if we are to maintain our Constitutional Republic. God listens!

I think we are going to win tomorrow, and I think we are going to win big, but take nothing for granted. Every vote truly DOES count. So, BE THE WAVE!

Then we’ll celebrate!

Erskine Bowles Talks About Paul Ryan: by The Elephant's Child

Erskine Bowles at the University of North Carolina, Lambeth Lecture 2011

Democrats are attempting to pile on and declare Paul Ryan as a wild-eyed, dangerous radical: but that theme is apt to come back and bite them; because that is, quite specifically, just what Paul Ryan is definitely not. Not radical, but serious about serious problems that the President and the Democrats in Congress are not prepared to face up to — or deal with.

Ryan has produced two House budgets, voted on and passed. The Senate, under Harry Reid, has refused to produce or pass the legally required budget for over 1,200 days.

Erskine Bowles was most recently co-chair of President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform with Alan Simpson.  Better known as “Simpson-Bowles”— the sensible budget plant that Obama ignored. Before that Bowles was president of the University of North Carolina, and before that, he was Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff. He is a Democrat.

Have any of you met Paul Ryan? We should get him to come to the university. I’m telling you this guy is amazing, uh. I always thought that I was OK with arithmetic, but this guy can run circles around me. And, he is honest. He is straightforward. He is sincere.

And, the budget that he came forward with is just like Paul Ryan. It is a sensible, straightforward, serious budget and it cut the budget deficit by $4 trillion…just like we did.

The President came out with his own plan and the President came out, as you will remember, with a budget and I don’t think anyone took that budget very seriously. Um, the Senate voted against it 97 to nothing. He, therefore, after a lot of pressure from folks like me, he came out with a new budget framework and, in the new budget framework, he cut the budget deficit by $4 trillion over 12 years. And, to be candid, this $4 trillion cut was very heavily back-end loaded. So, if you looked at it on a 10 year basis and compared apples-to-apples, it was about a $2.5 trillion cut.”

President Obama has sent two budgets to Congress, late, both were rejected unanimously. I suppose if you put a budget on the table, the state of the economy appears in print. To be avoided at all costs. The president is probably putting that off until after the election. He does not want to cut the budget deficit.
