Voting rights and wrongs

Problem

We can not attract great programs on the cheap. This is important to keep in mind when discussing the public sector and all services provided, except maybe for defense spending, where waste is out of control, while huge contractors continue to earn big bucks.

War of Words

Problem

The Pope is more popular than any political candidate and those who have faith may see that God will provide the answer. But please understand that sometimes it takes a while to be able to recognize what God wants, because God's voice is usually nothing more than a whisper.

Voters have to listen carefully to hear it but there have been times, when the answer is obvious and rings as loud as a church bell. If religious leaders rise on faith, do all politicians just run on hot air? The US electorate will decide in due time and on judgement day.

The US Mexico Wall

Problem

After promising that Mexico would pay, and when the government refused his demands for a proposed border wall, POTUS is now threatening a government shutdown over funding.

Contact your government officials and let them know how you feel about spending US tax dollars. Reach out to The White House with your ideas and demands and remind all of them who is the boss.

AND THE WINNERS ARE...

News

Voters in The Garden State have decided to re-elect their heavy weight Republican Governor. Chris Christie cruised to a NJ victory and now appears focused on a 2016 GOP Presidential candidacy.

The NJ Governor's victory underlines his support from Democrats, independents as well as minorities. Similarly, George W. Bush was re-elected as governor in Texas back in 1998. . This month, Christie will assume the chairmanship of the GOP Governors Association, giving him a solid platform for his national campaign.

After 12 years of independent Mike Bloomberg in office, New York City voters have elected Democrat Bill de Blasio. His victory comes as a severe disappointment to Republicans and their light weight candidate Joe Lhota. This election signals a leftward shift for the city after the long and highly paid for Bloomberg re-elections.

This means that Democrats are back in control of the nation’s largest city for the first time in two decades. The 1,200 polling places throughout NYC experienced a lower than usual turnout according to city election officials.
