Save Our State of Massachusetts
Second ONLY to the vote you will make in November, tomorrow is one of the most important votes you may make in your lifetime. Before elaborating on this further [below], please take a moment to know or learn about the role and importance of State Committee members so that you can make an informed decision and vote in the right person(s) for the job in YOUR NECK OF THE WOODS.
State Committee members are elected every 4 years during the Presidential primary. ONE of the jobs of the state committee is to act as the legislative branch of the MA GOP. Few people are aware enough of who’s who or what it is all about to make an informed decision, therefore the inclination is to either not vote that position, or check off the incumbent, EVEN THOUGH IN MOST CASES THE INCUMBENT IS THE PROBLEM IN GOING IN A NEW [read better] direction. Those elected to the committee can have profound impact on the direction of the party which translates into the direction of the state, as well as country.
Alex Veras, candidate for Massachusetts Republican State Committee First Essex District explains his reasons for running, and what he hopes to accomplish here. Sheila Mullins, a candidate for the SAME district (each district elects ONE man, and ONE woman) provides answers to: What is the State Committee, and Why Should I Care here. Both are quick easy reads, and well worth your while so that you can have a basis for voting for THEM, or the strongest candidate in YOUR district. *****Because redistricting has shifted many senate district lines from last year and voters may belong to a new district this year, it is important that you type in your address at this Web site: http://www.wheredoivotema.com/bal/myelectioninfo.php to find YOUR current senator and senate district. Then you can go to http://www.votecorevalues.org/STATECOMMs/scm_index.html and scroll down to your senate district to find information on the candidates for State Committee. Because so few are familiar with the existence, let alone importance of State Committee, YOUR VOTE IS VERY POWERFUL IN ELECTING A STATE COMMITTEE THAT REFLECTS YOUR VIEWS AND VALUES, and every person you can influence as to who they should vote for makes it all the MORE POWERFUL.
and now a compelling message from Ted Tripp of the Merrimack Valley Tea Party:
If you haven’t decided which of the four candidates you are going to vote for Tuesday, you may want to take a look at the last presidential debate from February 22nd. You can view it here: http://www.2012presidentialelectionnews.com/2012/02/video-watch-the-full-cnnarizona-republican-debate/. You can also listen to the speeches of Gingrich, Romney and Santorum from the recent CPAC conference in Washington, available here: http://cpac2012.conservative.org/gingrich-calls-on-cpac-crowd-to-choose-path-to-world-the-works/1072/ and http://cpac2012.conservative.org/santorum-to-conservatives-you-are-blessed-to-live-in-a-time-when-america-needs-you/976/ and http://cpac2012.conservative.org/mitt-romney-we-should-cling-to-our-guns-religion-and-constitution/1013/. Ron Paul did not address CPAC this year, but if you are a Ron Paul supporter you know where he stands on the issues. You can also visit each of the four candidates’ Web sites for more detailed information if you have no life and need more information.
See you at the polls on Tuesday!

And some humor (kind of) http://personalliberty.com/2012/02/29/a-letter-from-barry/?eiid=
Joe, as you know, my popularity numbers have been dropping faster than a free-falling safe. I’ve tried all the usual stuff like blaming my predecessor for everything, making up personal experience stories and flat out lying. The economy is in the toilet, and we are fighting so many wars that they even want me to give back my Peace Prize. I’ve tried the liberal-standard “deny, deflect, delay” schemes and nothing has worked, so I’m in a bind. You know we even got the kids a dog and he really likes peeing in the Rose Garden. Michelle is really fond of all the servants, and I’m hooked on being able to play golf on all the best courses and not having to worry about inconvenient tee times. My Messiah image is getting shopworn, and people are talking about me being a one-term president.
You, on the other hand, have been a constant source of much amusement with your gaffes and have earned the reputation of being the village idiot. Hillary said, “It takes a village.” People can’t wait to see which foot you will put in your mouth next.
I’ve got a healthcare bill that I convinced the Congress to ram through, never thinking in my wildest dreams that anybody would actually read it. Well, they did read it, and I look like an idiot. I’ve got Attorney General Eric “Fast and Furious” Holder hanging around my neck like an anchor, but he’s “one of my people” so he’s untouchable. What I really need is a way to deflect attention from my lack of accomplishment and experience.
I’ve got the Occupy Wall Street bunch, which I initially supported. I even made a statement in support of them. Well, it turns out I backed the wrong horse in that race, because they are showing themselves to be nothing more than dope-smoking weirdos who don’t even want a job. Let’s face it: Defecating on a police car or stealing from a church is not something that looks good on a resume. Hey, even the American Nazi Party endorsed them! Luckily, Nancy (God Bless Them) Pelosi and Maxine Waters also praised them; so I can have my mouthpiece, Jay Carney, say something like, “What the President really meant,” thereby deflecting the blame.
I keep saying that we need to tax the millionaires, but the fact of the matter is that they are becoming an endangered species because of the lousy economy. Back in 2007, there were 400,000 of them; but in 2009, they dropped to just 235,000. I know what you’re going to tell me is that there are still enough of them to fill my re-election campaign coffers but I’ve got to protect what I’ve got, because the truth of the matter is that it doesn’t look like there are going to be any new millionaires anytime soon. The number of people 16 and older who have been unemployed for more than a year averaged 1.3 million in the past three recessions, but in 2010 there were 4.3 million. Twenty -Ten, Joe, that’s on my watch!! So how do I deflect that?
Joe, I have to cut this short because I have a 10 a.m. tee time. I’ll only be able to play 18 holes because Michelle wants me to take her out on a date night later on. Jeez, there’s not enough time to squeeze all this in. So let me get right to the point: I need you to take one on the chin for the home team. There’s no easy way to say it so I’ll come right out with it. Joe, I’m dumping you as my Vice President. There, I said it. You’re an old politician so you know it’s not personal, just business.
Look at what Hillary can bring to the table once you announce that you are stepping down for health reasons or because you want to spend more time with your family — you know the line. The most important thing is that she hasn’t been associated with the disastrous economic policies. Another thing is that she is going to be bringing the older white folks with her, and we need those votes — especially the women’s. She’ll also be bringing Bill. Lots of younger women like him, and he likes lots of younger women. More votes.
As you know, I’ll be going on another vacation with Michelle, the kids, the mother- in- law and about 50 close friends next week. Will that give you enough time to make your announcement, or do I need to get some of my Chicago friends to make you an offer you can’t refuse?
I’m also still searching all 57 states for any remaining golf courses I may have missed, so my time is limited.
Remember: It’s just business,
