    High voter turnout…… that means bad things for Republicans

      “High voter turnout” means that D’s vote multiple times.  The cemeteries get more action on election day every four years than during any other day in any given year.

         yeah yeah yeah …webster( and ALL R’s, across the land  ) tried playing that card.  It back fired big time .

        The difference between D’s and R’s?  D ‘s  actually WANT  “the people”  to  be able  to vote , the more the merrier!!! They are not afraid of  “the people’s ” voting., they embrace it  and they don’t act to  BLOCK it    R’s made 2 BIG mistakes since  gaining control in 2010–going after voters and going after women.

        This lie has been disproven by the Republican Secretary of State. Get over the voter fraud tactic The only thing that comes from it is bad electoral practices. What would make sense is the elimination of the electoral college and replacing it with a direct popular vote. Excellent article in the Lewiston Sun on this. Feel free to help Charlie Webster in his search for a new political hack job.

    something the consider   …”One was a story in The Nation that exposed how Romney, while publicly opposing the auto company bailout, secretly got in on the action with his Wall Street donors — and made more than $15 million, a 4,000 percent return on his investment (which he hid in a blind trust in his wife’s name) by buying up the Delphi auto parts company, the former Delco/AC Spark Plug division of GM where my dad worked. He then — get this — grabbed billions in bailout cash to “transform” it from bankrupt to a “viable business.” Except what he really did was slash retiree pensions, shut down 24 U.S. factories, and ship all 25,200 union jobs to China. You’d think he’d keep quiet about Delphi — but no, he’s got his supporters running ads in Ohio blaming Barack Obama for terminating the Delphi pensions. I kid you not. (When I opposed the Iraq War, Romneyites and the like called me a “traitor”; when Romney does this traitorous act destroying jobs and sending them to China, his reward, in addition to the millions he pocketed, may be the presidency tomorrow.) The other story was a bill passed by the Pennsylvania legislature that would allow businesses to take the state income taxes they withhold from their employees’ paychecks and keep the money for themselves! That’s right. Your taxes that you pay to the state won’t go to the state anymore — they’ll just go right into the pockets of your bosses. I was stunned to find out that other states are already doing this as an “incentive” to lure or keep businesses in their states. Let’s be clear what this is about: the final merging that’s taking place between the corporate and political power structures, coming together as one, and making the workers (serfs) pay tribute to their employer (the overlord). Welcome to the New Feudalism.”
