Almost every conservative web site has been prominently running ads saying "Defeat the King of Filibusters - Retire Mitch McConnell" along with a click-able button asking readers to "Sign the petition". This blog does not carry any advertisements because I don't want someone else deciding what to put here but many sites depend on the income generated by these ads and have no say about it. And it is quite odd that the same ad is showing up on so many supposedly pro-Republican web sites.
Here is a clue to those who are inclined not to think too deeply about things. The ads must be backed by Democrats because they are the sole beneficiaries. The Republican Primary is over and Mitch McConnell won. The Tea Party candidate lost. I supported and voted for Matt Bevin but he didn't get enough votes. Now its time to put aside our differences. So my message to Kentucky Republicans and Tea Party supporters is: Get over it.In two months we go into the election booths and everyone gets to vote for the candidate of our choice. You can vote for the Republican or you can vote for the Democrat or you can vote for the Libertarian. The race is fairly close between the Republican and the Democrat so every vote counts. The Libertarian is polling only 6-7%, hardly enough to win but more than enough to help the Democrats win. If previous elections elsewhere are a clue, the Libertarian will probably get a lot of financial support from the Democrats to gain exposure and grab a few votes, and if lucky, maybe just enough to tilt the results to the Democrat. That is why the Democrats give a lot of backdoor support to the Libertarians. So if you want to take the U.S. Senate away from Democrat Harry Reid your only choice is to vote for Republican Mitch McConnell in Kentucky and to vote for the Republican candidate in your own state.
This is a crucial election. If there is a successful effort in the House of Representatives to impeach Barack Hussein Obama for his crimes against the Constitution, by law the impeachment trial will be held in the Senate. We must also have a veto-proof Republican majority in the Senate to stop Obama's attack on American Laws and our Sovereignty. The Democrats are desperate to make millions of illegal immigrants into Democrat-voting U.S. Citizens. If he gets away with this the Republicans will never win another national election.
