      Ya got to love the electoral college.

      SEE MAP AT END.


      Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St.
      Paul,
      Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the
      Presidential
      election:
      Number of States won by: Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29
      Square miles of land won by: Democrats: 580,000 Republicans:
      2,427,000
      Population of counties won by: Democrats: 127 million Republicans:
      143 million
      Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
      Democrats: 13.2
      Republicans: 2.1

      Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory
      Republican
      won by Republicans was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying
      citizens
      of the country.
      Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in
      government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government
      welfare.
      Professor Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between
      the
      "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of
      democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population
      already
      having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

      If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal
      invaders called illegal's and they vote, then we can say goodbye to
      the
      USA in fewer than five years

      Pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake,
      knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom.

        Hi All, The info about the election results is from the 2000 election and is a mix of fact and inaccuracy. It s always good to verify info before passing it

          Hi All,
           
           The info about the election results is from the 2000 election and is a mix of fact and inaccuracy. It's always good to verify info before passing it along. Snopes covers this one here:
           

          The best article I've read on the electoral college is here: http://www.heritage.org/research/legalissues/lm15.cfm

           

          If anyone ever needs a place to meet in Brewster, my wife and I run a small private school that is centrally located (we treat the students as if they were human beings - parents make decisions, not the state). We're perpetually swamped trying to keep the ship afloat against what are rapidly becoming gale headwinds of socialism, so we're not very involved in local politics, but we'd support any local efforts to help the fight, and using our building in the evening or on weekends is an easy way to help. It's tough not having the time to roll up our sleeves more, but at least our high school students know the difference between Keynesian and Austrian economics, and they know where all the major questions are in the battle to interpret American History. They are well versed in the parallels between the massive influx of Federal Reserve created credit in the Roaring 20's, 90's, and 00's, and see the moral hazards of the malinvestment fiat money can bring. They are great with music theory too - they can compare Paul Krugman's steady drumbeat in the NY Times that Obama will not go far enough towards massive gov't spending, and recognize it as the same tune that Huey Long and the hard core socialists in the 30's sang (I.e. that FDR was too restrained).

           

          Keep up the fight, and redouble your efforts while we still fight with the pen rather than swords or guns, because if it comes down to that, the odds are long against restoring freedom. I'll leave with my absolute favorite scene from Braveheart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGDBAoNRWjQ&feature=related

           

          God Bless!

            that I moderate.

            I try not to censor any posts that come in from our members, and trust
            that our members use a little decorum. For example, the "rude" and
            "crude" are not welcome, and I will certainly contact folks off-line
            to discuss this issue if it is called for.

            Its obvious that we have a 'conspiracy theorist' or two with us, and I
            do want to discourage this type of prostelizing here. Frankly, it
            turns off a lot of people, and "marginalizes" us from the
            "mainstream"; this can not happen here if we are to be successful.

            Obviously, a related issue is using inflamatory terms such as
            "traitor", "commie", "communist" and related slurs when speaking about
            our political adversaries. Not only is it in "bad" taste, but also
            "bad" politics; it hurts are cause.

            This is one reason why "we" try to encourage posts on our state and
            Regional sites to be related to the state or the individual Regions
            respectively; "conspiracies theories" typically are a 'national
            subject'.

            Another reason why this general policy exists is that we are more apt
            to disagree on national issues than on state and local issues, and,
            we do want to concentrate on issues where we agree in most cases.

            Re: The accuracy of posts. I do have time constraints, and I do not,
            unfortunately, have time to check all of the posts for accuracy <on
            all of my sites>, but in most cases, one of our readers or two, does
            check things out when things do not look 'kosher'. I do believe,
            however, that I may have to review this situation.

            that in the future.

            Message 5 of 5 , Jan 15, 2009
              Although I agree to and abide by rules and regs, I have for my entire
              life, it is that same vain that cripples us.
              Im a self admitted non political person that worked hard my whole
              life in public service.
              I did hold positions in Fraternal groups such as President and Vice
              President and in Unions as delegate. So I am familiar with politics.
              As far as Im concerned politics is bad business. I always conducted
              myself in a way that I could smooze with the uppidy ups and still
              take care of my people. I was always known to speak my mind and not
              hold back.
              I joined this group because I belived that the 2 party system is bad
              and the outside parties dont stand a chance. So, in that light, it
              seemed this group was motivated in changing the one party that went
              astray, the Republican party. As it stands now, both parties are
              responsible for what is going on in this state and country.
              The only chance I saw was changing the republican party back to its
              conservative roots.
              The liberals and dems and anti's don't play nice. Why should we?
              I think the days of politics as usual and being nice are long over.
              I think it is time to state our case and be aggressive.
              To do anything less is a waste of time and in vain because we are
              surely losing our rights as we speak.
              Please advise me if I dont fit into this group as I will than channel
              my energy and thoughts into something else.
              Craig B
