Massachusetts Senate Race

I always try and stay away from political items because I know two things:
1-Most readers cannot stand either party and are fed up with the government
2-Most readers know too much of the country is either too dumb or too jaded to do anything about our system

Of course I agree 100%

What I post tonight is for one reason only.

What happens in Massachusetts will make a difference.

Now you may think the health care bill hangs in the balance, and it might. I hate the bill but that is secondary to the main point. The point is our elected leaders have done terrible, horrible things in total violation of the people's will for so long they take it for granted. If Scott Brown wins this may change. I said MAY, not will.

Nothing motivates a politician more than the idea they are going to lose and lose royally in an election. This is the message we need to send. If a Republican can win in Massachusetts than all their butts are on the line on both sides of the aisle.

With that said I submit all the evidence anyone needs to cast a vote for Scott Brown. If, after viewing the following two clips you still choose to vote for Martha Coakley, then you may have a serious problem and I cannot help you.

Clip 1: The People's Seat:

Mr. Brown explains the Senate seat belongs to the people of Massachusetts. We have not been represented in the Senate for about 20 years because Ted Kennedy and John Kerry are residents of Washington DC, not Massachusetts.

Clip 2: Total Rip Off:

That is all you need.

Faced with a powerful truth the Coakley crew just rip off Scott Brown's line and re-use it! This is beyond weak and disqualifies the entire campaign due to total lack of class. This is absurd.

If you vote for this kind of limited ability you are a fool. If you vote for this weak a candidate you have sacrificed any ability for Massachusetts to be an independent vote in the Senate and instead be a lackey for the government.

Need I remind all Massachusetts natives that Biotech/Pharma is our bread and butter industry? What do you think happens if the health care bill gets passed? If you lack a brain or an imagination let me help:
We are screwed as research jobs will dry up as Pharma focuses on generics and kills off pipeline work to see how things unfold.
Got that? Is that simple enough?

Sorry for the political rant but this is important.

Have a good night.

Its funny but its true. Any "intellectual" like we have here in Mass (allegedly?) after seeing those two clips has no choice.

Good post, GYSC. But I wouldn't call it a rant :) There are good people in MA, and it's time for them to stand up and be counted! Brown's election will simply be the first step, it will stop the enemy from storming the gates. After that the real work must be done.

Brown has to be elected. That's it!

If he isn't I give up on all the people of Massachusetts and Connecticut.

There's a reason that I only drink bottled water, people. I have no desire to become a Stepford Liberal. You think they'd learn...but noooooooooooo. They just keep doing the same stupid shit over and over again.

Case in point, Christopher Dodd.

I wonder who paid him how much not to run again. No way am I buying his speech. Someone like him doesn't retire unless there's something in it for him...and it had better be something pretty damn big while you're at it too.

The scumbucket to end all scumbuckets. And yet there are still some delusional people here that just love the guy.

Don't tell Stagflationary Mark but I'm starting to feel 'hope' that there may be a chance of Scott Brown pulling this off.

Who knows GYSC, you may be able to purchase the firearm of your choice one day!

It will be just like living here in hillbilly country, woo hoo!!!(except without the rusted out vehicles sitting on cinder blocks, but hey, you can't have everything up there)

A snow storm had knocked out my cable for the day. I do love the winter.
