Well I guess hell has frozen over. Iowa, the land of farmers, many still democrats because their moms and dads were democrats, has become a "battleground" state apparently. All one has to do is read the endorsement and digest the reasoning to see why America in general will be electing Romney and Republicans next week.
HERE is the endorsement.
Obama was their man last time but, as we all have seen over the last four years, the only promise kept by Obama is raising our taxes. The Register thinks Romney will be better for the economy and in Iowa, that trumps all other promises.
Across America, the "makers" of our country are doing their best to take back the reins of power and responsibility from the "takers". 23 million out of work, many giving up totally, millions graduating from college with no hope for a job in their field. Millions living with mom and dad (liberals do this mainly by choice until age 35) and the threat by the democrats for higher and higher taxes. Everywhere the left has been in charge in our land we see them threatening to raise taxes and toss the citizens in the klink for refusing to pay the extortion.
All over our country we see democrats refusing to do the cuts necessary to balance the yearly budget. California is the poster child for legislative democrat dysfunction. With the legislative districts locked in to partisan hegemony maintained by the left, we have no chance to fix the mess here. It almost happened in Washington DC but the Tea Party stopped that and brought some sanity back to the federal system. Unfortunately the Tea Party fell a bit short and the Senate was left in charge by the liberals in 2010. We see thirty plus bills passed by the House sent to the Senate and tossed in the round file by Harry Reid, democrat leader and resident scofflaw. Tose bills went a long way to fix the mess.
Perhaps next Tuesday, November 6, the people of America will regain their senses and boot the left out of power and put some adults in charge. Democrat operatives have been doing their best to upset the political tsunami I see coming next week. From stealing signs, tweeting lies galore and "keying" Obama's name in the paint jobs of Chevy's the leftwingnuts are in desperate mode. The adults, those "conservatives" are maintaining their efforts to get out the vote instead of flooding the streets with criminal activists like the democrats. The GOTV efforts are paying off as we see a rise in the polling numbers for the Romney/Ryan campaign.
Here at the end of the campaign we get to see the warts of the process of electing people in America. Having been through a few elections myself I know the people that feel they are behind will be the desperate ones. Obama and the democrats are desperate in my view. All the trash talk, all the Leno and Letterman and "the view" visits will not save Obama and the left. All the fibs they tell us about tax returns, Bain Capital and Mormonism will not work in my opinion. America is hurting, hurting economically and to a great degree hurting morally and ethically. We need adults in charge.
So, the Des Moines Register agrees with me and I am happy to see them finally get smart. I think America will be smart next week too. Romney/Ryan, the team to bring back people who know what the hell America is really all about. They will protect the little guy/gal from the tentacles Obama/Reid/Pelosi have tossed out there to ensnare freedom from us. All this campaigning will end and peace may be restored again, well at least for a little while.
