We have a lot of things to think about this election but it really is nothing new. Every election is important, and if we had an elected dog catcher position I would feel the same way. I urge eveyone to GOTV and do your duty. Sitting on the sidelines and carping about things is no longer acceptable for Americans. There are clear choices at most positions here in Nevada County, California and the nation. We must show the sleath liberals, their attempted tkeover of our government is not going to happen.
I am always cautious about elections since I had a couple of close ones I won and a couple I lost. You have to sit down in your chair on election day and be able to say, "I did all I could" to get elected and now it is up to the people. If you can say you did all you could, you will be peaceful. When I ran for Supervisor in 1984 and was in the runoff with the incumbent in November, I stayed home with the wife and kids and some friends and watched the returns on Channel 3 and listened on KNCO. My opponent was having a big party at the AVM in Nevada City. Well, guess what? I won and my littlre family celebrated at the house, and my opponent and all her suppoerters were devestated. I don't go to election party's, maybe I am a bit superstitious.
The local Democrats and their supporters in the blogosphere like Sierra Foothills Report are desperate to win. They are doing their best to trash Tom, Meg and Carly. They are crying about nasty campaigns yet they are the nastiest people. We have a small town and this batch of left-wingers are so full of themselves they fail to see they have marginalized themselves politically here. Reasonable organizations like CABPRO, the NCRCC and many local businesses are where people need to go for the truth. Read the conservative blogs, stay away from liberal rags run by self poclaimed middle of the roaders and you will pull the lever for honesty and truth.
