After the ugly scene that played out on the floor of the Democratic National Convention, during which the Democratic Party amended their platform to reinstate “God” and mention that Jerusalem is the capital of Isreal, CNN's Anderson Cooper went to DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her reaction to the entire ordeal. But after she spoke, Cooper determined she was living in an “alternate universe.” Here's more and the video.
The question is the same question we are asking today and the problems that Reagan is describing in this clip of the Carter administration are strikingly similar to today. History repeating itself? And we know how things turned out in the Reagan administration. Enjoy and share this clip.
The Voter Integrity Project, a North Carolina group interested in free and fair elections has delivered to the NC Board of Elections, the names of just under 30,000 deceased NC residents who were still on the state’s voter roll, in some cases, for almost a decade. Read more about it HERE.
There has recently been a movement afoot called "Manassas Votes". Have you run into them outside your local grocery stores or at the Farmer’s Market? They have been gathering signatures for a ballot initiative that, if passed, would move our city elections from May to November. The organization collected the required number of signatures so the City of Manassas voters will have a referendum question to vote on in the November election. This is not good for a number of reasons. The professed goals of this organization are to save the city money and get more citizens engaged in the voting process at the city level. But consider a few facts:
1). The city spends not $10,000 as is being claimed on local elections but $100. The state reimburses the city for all but that $100. I think we can afford this expenditure.
2). Should the city elections be moved to November, congressional and presidential races would spur relatively massive turnout. This would mean that a city council candidate who normally would need a budget to reach 2,500 voters as is the case in a May election would now need to communicate his or her message to roughly 20,000 voters. Who, on a tight budget, can afford to run for city council with those kinds of numbers? The independently wealthy? Sure. Those who would consider "selling out" to special interests? Definitely. The middle class "regular Joes/Janes" who work a 9 to 5 job? Almost impossible.
3). Do we really want thousands of disinterested, disengaged and uninformed voters flooding to the polls, whose singular purpose is to vote for a statewide or national candidate while having no insight into city issues/candidates? Don't we want voters, regardless of party affiliation, to have paid attention to what's at stake? Having elections in November will only further dilute the attentions of the Manassas voter not increase it.
Leave our city elections right where they are and let the national and state elections take care of themselves!
Manassas, Vote NO to November Elections!
UPDATE: This movie is coming to Virginia the week of August 24. To find specfic theaters showing the movie go HERE.
2016 Obama's America, is likely to stun Americans who haven’t looked into their president’s formative years. As detailed in an article by Manassas Tea Party supporter and World Net Daily contributor Anita Crane, "the roots of the current president’s infamous “you didn’t build that” speech go back to Kenya and the anti-colonialism seeded in his worldview." Here is the trailer to what looks to be an eye-opening movie:
Thanks to True the Vote and the Virginia Voters Alliance the Virginia State Board of Elections has found and removed 10,000 dead voters from the rolls. This was as the result of True the Vote and the Virginia Voters Alliance demonstrating to the Board that a Social Security Administration's death master file could be compared to the voter rolls to locate deceased voters. Read about it HERE.

Have you seen this new ad that was produced by the Americans for Prosperity? Aimed at women in Virginia the ad focuses on how rising taxes on food, gas, and housing, the rising costs of energy, and other concerns to women is causing purse power to shrink.
We need to remind the voters about this every day for the next 95 days. Connect gas prices to where it rightly belongs.

Sarah Palin who endorsed Cruz posted on Facebook: “Congratulations to Ted Cruz! This is a victory both for Ted and for the grassroots Tea Party movement. This primary race has always been about the kind of leadership we need in D.C. Our goal is not just about changing the majority in the Senate. It is about the kind of leadership we want. Ted Cruz represents the kind of strong conservative leadership we want in D.C.”

UPDATE: The Virginia State Board of Elections has decided NOT to call for an investigation of the Voter Participation Center and will NOT take action on a Romney campaign request to examine voter registration forms submitted by VPC’s over the last two months. Instead the State Board of Elections is working with the Voter Participation Center to change their mailer and "improve the group's registration processes".
