Republicans Do Well Nationally and in Kansas City Area

Tuesday's elections sent a clear message. Americans are not happy with the Democratic leadership. The Republicans took over the House of Representatives with a clear majority, and made huge strides in the Senate leaving the Democrats with the narrowest of majorities. This is all good news, of course, but let's be clear that we are giving Republicans another go at it - if we do not get results, we'll throw their asses out, too. Locally, the pattern was upheld with Republicans winning in all but one National race.

There was one big upset. Long time Congressman (34 years) from Missouri's 4th District, Ike Skelton, was defeated by Republican Vicky Hartzler. Skelton is good man and really a victim of President Obama's bad policy. Maybe we can get him to move to the 5th District and take on Cleaver in the Democratic Primary. Speaking of Congressman Cleaver, how does this guy keep getting elected? Oh yea, that's right he's black - and unfortunately black people will vote for other black people. ANY black person, no matter now stupid. If Cleaver can get re-elected this year after "spittlegate" and his glowing compliments of Communist Dictator Fidel Castro, I guess he will be Congressman for life.

In Kansas, a poor showing by Stephane Moore in the 3rd Congressional district race made easy pickins for Kevin Yoder as the Democrats lost another seat (retiring Democrat Dennis Moore's) to the Republicans. A unified (for a change) Kansas Republican Party led former Senator Sam Brownback to a landslide victory for the Governor's office.

Other Election News

Missouri Proposition A - Voters passed Prop A by a wide margin showing their distaste for local earnings taxes. The passing of this Proposition paves the way for a vote in Kansas City on the continuation of the 1% income tax the city assesses on those who LIVE OR WORK in the city.

Missouri Proposition B - Passed by a relatively small margin, this unnecessary law will cost the State Money, and do virtually nothing to end cruelty to animals.

Jacob Turk for Congress

Though I have always been interested in politics, generally speaking these days voting is a case of which crooked insider wants in my pocket the least. Most, if not all of today's national politicians are corrupted within a few years of being in Washington - if they are not already corrupt upon election. Party leaders try to get heir claws in them from the time a Freshman Congressman steps off the plane.

Emanual Cleaver II is no exception. Once thought to be an independent thinker, he is just another vote for the Democratic agenda of higher taxes, more programs and less economic freedom. He and the Black Caucus trot down to Cuba to meet with Castro and proclaim and say what a great guy he is? Are you Kidding me? Castro is a Dictator, pure and simple - what a great and wonderful human being living in luxury while the rest of his country lives in poverty without the personal freedoms we take for granted.

In Missouri's 5th District (Kansas City-South of the River to Lees Summit and south on 71hwy to Harrisonville area), Jacob Turk is running for Congress against Emanual Cleaver. Jacob Turk is a regular guy, not a politician - at least not yet. He is a family man with strong fiscally conservative ideals - this is what our country needs right now. He is opposed to National Health Care - Cap and Trade (which imposes taxes on energy - higher electric and gas bills) - and more stimulus packages. Though he is a little too conservative on social issues for my taste, I am willing to overlook this to get this country back on the right track economically. Polling has shown that Turk is in striking distance of Cleaver. Let's send Cleaver back home. Vote early and Often!
