A Vote for a Democrat Senate Candidate is a Vote for Harry Reid

Well, you say, Harry Reid is not on the ballot so why say that a vote for a Democrat is a vote for Harry Reid? Here's why.

The Democrats for the past 6 years have been claiming that it is the “do nothing” Republicans, who control the House of Representatives, who have bottled up most of President Obama's agenda for purely partisan political purposes. It's funny that they never mention the fact that Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Harry Reid, has kept over 300 bills passed by the House from being voted on by the Senate. So, who are they trying to fool? You guessed it, the “low information” voter and the general public at-large. It is not the House that has bottled up legislation, it has been the Senate that has brought our legislative process to a standstill under the leadership (or lack thereof) of Sen . Harry Reid.

Also, over the past 6 years that Obama has been in office and in a position to appoint judges to the federal courts, a goodly number of left-wing judges have been appointed by our liberal President Obama. Each party generally appoints judges of a similar political bent to the courts, that's politics, but the judges appointed by Obama are very much attuned to the liberal/progressive philosophy of Obama and his fellow travelers from the left side of the political spectrum, almost exclusively, no bi-partisanship at all. Due to the fact that federal judges must be confirmed by the Senate, it is imperative that future Obama appointees not go through the “iron fist” of Majority Leader Harry Reid, who could if he remained Leader, by the Democrats keeping control of the Senate, would rubber-stamp more lefty judges, much to the detriment of good government.

Since the policies of Obama seem to be looked upon unfavorably by a majority of the public, the one way to prevent Harry Reid (and Obama) from doing more damage to our democratic republic is to vote for a Republican candidate to the U.S. Senate, so that the Republicans can gain the majority in the Senate to monitor the judicial nominees put forth by President Obama during his last two years in office. If Republicans control the Senate after the November elections, it will throw a monkey wrench into the Marxist/Socialist agenda of Obama and the Democrats. They will not have carte blanche to pack the federal bench with liberal(a/k/a progressive) judges, and legislation will then be acted upon by a Republican controlled Senate which Obama will then have to either sign or veto the bills that come before him, thereby putting the Democrats on the defensive and having to justify their actions in the 2016 Presidential election year.

From the most recent polls, it looks like the Republicans will be able to possibly gain the majority in the Senate and add to their majority in the House. It won't be easy because the Democrats have raised enormous amounts of campaign funds and are determined to try to stem a projected electoral slaughter this November by spending that money and by using a campaign predicated on the “politics of personal destruction”. It has worked in the past and they hope it will work again.

So, as our headline proclaimed, a vote for a Democrat Senate candidate is a vote for Sen. Harry Reid and for Obama completing his “transformation of America”. DON”T LET THAT HAPPEN, VOTE REPUBLICAN THIS NOVEMBER!

It is shocking to see so many Democrat candidates bad mouthing the leader, Obama, they supported in over 95% of their votes. Why did they vote for the presidents policies if they didn't agree with them? We all know why, Obama's popularity is so low now that they don't want to be associated with him, not as before when they voted in lock step with him. The Democrats might think all voters are stupid to believe these feckless candidates, but they won't be laughing after November 4th.
