Jennifer Horn: The Left Ought Not Be Rewarded


The Democrats resorted to extreme measures to defeat Justice Kavanaugh.

Even though they lost, they apparently have no shame or intention of changing their ugly tactics.

Republican Senator Susan Collins—was first bribed, then vilified and threatened for supporting him.

Why the ugliness?

As we look to the election, Democrats are terrified they may lose government support for their ardent supporter, Planned Parenthood.  They justify it as “protecting women’s health” but it’s really about money and power.

They didn’t mind risking the health of Dr. Christine Ford, their star anti-Kavanaugh witness.

After losing in 2016 and failing to stop the Supreme Court nominee—the behavior of the Left has turned radical and dangerous.

It ought not be rewarded.

Join me in voting Republican on November 6.

Dennis Prager: America’s Near Transformation


Conservatives who are disinclined to vote on November 6 should take a brief history tour.

When Barack Obama was about to become President in 2009 he said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

Eight years later, his prediction had nearly been fulfilled:

  • His vaunted health care proposal had been passed—and was already well on its way towards collapsing
  • America was weaker militarily

Had Hillary Clinton followed in Obama’s wake, who knows what else we’d be facing…

Thanks to the Trump Administration and a Republican Congress, U.S. world leadership is back, the economy is strong; and rogue states are in check.

But a Democrat-led House promises to undo those accomplishments.

We simply cannot afford a Speaker Pelosi.

Be sure to vote. And vote Republican!

Jerry Bowyer: The American Economy and Election 2018


You know that recent massive market sell-off?—The one that dropped over 1,000 points from the Dow in just 2 days? I was a reminder that –when it comes to the economy—we’re not out of the woods yet. And if Democrats win the mid-terms, we could get more shocks like we saw in early October.

The polarized politics of our day, the mob tactics, and the attacks on the President and his party have dominated the news.

I fear we’ve lost sight of the economic reasons to vote in November.

The tax cut passed last year and boosted every sector of the economy. Republicans want to pass another one which could extend those gains for years. Democrats want to repeal the last one.

Republicans want to unleash business; Democrats want to tighten the leash.

The election is on us: If you’re interested in a strong economy and a strong stock market, you need to vote for growth policies in November.

David Davenport: What’s at Stake in the 2018 Elections


435 House and 33 Senate seats.  36 governorships.  6,665 state offices and tens of thousands of local ones.  And you ask what’s at stake in the 2018 elections?

There’s more: important ballot measures like the gas tax in California, carbon emissions in Washington, Medicaid expansion and voting rights.

Beyond the direct effects of your vote lie other questions.  If we split the House and Senate, will anything be passed in the next two years?  Even though Donald Trump is not on the ballot, this election will largely be a referendum on his performance.

It’s embarrassing but, according to the Pew Research Center, voter turnout in the U.S. is only 26th out of 32 democratic countries.

Isn’t there enough at stake for you to vote?  Believe me, this is not a year to be disengaged.  Turn out and do your part.

Dan Proft: Democrats Clarify Their Sense of Justice


Something emerged from the recent Kavanaugh hearings which makes conservatives grateful. The conduct of the Democrats added clarity to voters.

For example: We now know the Left’s definition of “being mean.” It’s not mean to berate conservatives in restaurants, in front of elevators and in other public places. And it’s not mean to call a conservative judge a rapist without basis and to lampoon his pre-adolescent child in a political cartoon.

On the other hand, it is very mean to have questions about the credibility of a woman who has made a charge without corroboration.

We now also know the Left’s definition of justice: A conservative, male judge may not defend himself against unprovable allegations that will ruin his career, family and reputation.

And: Only liberal justices may make partisan statements and maintain their impartiality.

 

Americans have been given an eye-opener as the November 6th election approaches.

An Advocate for Religious Liberty for Missouri

Voters in Missouri have a critical choice before them this November when they consider who to send to the United States Senate.

On the one hand, there’s incumbent liberal Senator Claire McCaskill.  She’s obstructed President Trump’s agenda by voting against tax cuts, against the judges he’s nominated and against efforts to make health care more affordable by repealing Obamacare.

And then there’s the GOP challenger: Missouri’s Attorney General, Josh Hawley. He’s fought for religious liberty and constitutional conservatism.  He supports pro-growth economic policies that will create jobs in Missouri.  And he wants to bring down health care costs while ensuring that the vulnerable have access to the care they need. Hawley is the right man for the job.

In Missouri and across the country, voters face important choices that will profoundly impact our future success.  On November 6, don’t forget to make your voice heard.

Katie Pavlich: The Big Issues Surrounding the 2018 Election


The first big electoral test for President Donald Trump will take place on November 6.

A quick look at history would indicate Republicans should lose seats in the House and possibly in the Senate. But—just as President Trump’s tenure in the Oval Office has bucked the status quo—independent and conservative voters must do the same in the 2018-midterm elections.

This election isn’t simply about Republicans vs. Democrats. It’s much bigger than that: It really is about right and wrong. It’s about free markets vs. socialism; due process vs. mob rule; civility vs. violence.

As election day inches closer, Democrats have proven time and again that their vicious behavior should not be rewarded with power. Not with a single seat.

Independent and conservative voters must hold the line on Election Day in order to ensure a safe and prosperous future.
