Criticism of Beck supporters by Republican Committeeman

I wanted to share with you this interesting letter from today's Altoona Mirror:

It was frustrating to read the Aug. 3 story about Congressman Shuster's public meeting ("Shuster gets an earful at event").

The sort of bizarre, foolish questions and comments he had to endure from a handful of people apparently claiming to be "conservatives" were not representative of the Republican party.

These individuals and their statements lead me to believe that they are…

No taxes on those earning less than $250k???

Much has been made of the fact that families making less than $250,000 a year will not see their taxes raised. Of course they won't see it, because what they see could affect how they vote. But when huge tax increases are put on electric utility companies, the people will see electricity bills go up. When huge taxes are put on other businesses as well, they will see the prices of the things those businesses sell go up. If you are not in that "rich" category, you may not see…

Less government by cutting the waste!!!!!

We need as people of this state to look at other states that don't have as high of taxes and debt. I believe that we could do better as a state if we get rid of the city, and municipalities (townships and boroughs). Back in the day, these entities were nessicary due to poor or lack communication, but now with the inception of the internet, faxing, and modern phone systems there shouldn't be a problem of taking care of the people of our state internally. This would also make the term for our…

My State Committee Experience

I ran for state committee in 2008 and faced unbelievable animosity, threats and general illwill from our local Senator and his wife, including a visit to my home with my husband (I was at work) to convince me not to run, with the senator threatening "to bring out the artillery against me"...whatever that meant. The senator and his wife would not fund her state committee campaign out of their own pocket but received $3000 from Bob Asher's PAC, PA Future Fund. I was outraged and exposed this…

Voter Apathy: What We Should Do About it

The Antidote to Voter Apathy & Improved Election Outcomes:

The Political Committee Person

By Lois Kaneshiki

As expected, the voted turnout was abysmally low in the May 2010 Pennsylvania Primary. We would all hope that Republican and Democratic voters would care who their next U. S. Senator and Governor would be, but most seemed content to let the party regulars decide for them.

What kind of outcome do we get from this kind of voter behavior and what can we do about… Continue

The GOP is a car

Would you expect your car to continue running indefinitely if you never changed the oil, never got it serviced, never got a tune-up?

If your car broke down, would you expect it to run by cleaning the windshield and never looking under the hood?

Yet this is how we expect our government to run.

We wait until Election Day, after the parties have chosen their candidates, and wonder why we don't have better choices at the ballot box.

Or maybe we do have some good candidates this… Continue
