Today the world watches Massachusetts as its people go to the polls to vote in the special election for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat. If Scott Brown succeeds in his bid against the Democratic favorite, it will be the first time in 40 years that the Democratic machine is not running things in Massachusetts; it will also be yet another nail in the DNC coffin, the first two being the Democratic upsets last November in Virginia and New Jersey. Despite campaign swings by the pResident in both states, they lost, and so it may very well go in Massachusetts as well.
Rallies with Obama and Coakley were poorly attended and marked by heckling; conversely, support for Brown seems almost unanimous with a majority of Brown signs and positive response from phone banking callers and house to house canvassers. The sentiments echo over and over: “WE MUST PUT A STOP TO THIS MAN! [Obama]; ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!; and it appears that Brown is the vehicle for triumph. Even decidedly Democrat CNN was forced to report that Brown seems to be gaining heavily while Coakley’s numbers are shaky and running far behind at best.
However, the concern about voter fraud in the form of voter intimidation at the polls, machine tampering and “ballot enhancement through absentee vote” runs rampant. To that end, Atlas Shrugs has posted information for anyone willing to go to Massachusetts, all expenses paid, to help keep things legal.
One thing is certain, however: the outpouring of Patriots traveling to Massachusetts in the name of Patriotism is astounding, heartwarming and a power of example to us all. It reminds us that we CAN work together to take back our beloved country, one Senate seat at a time.
My show last night was dedicated to Scott Brown’s campaign and to those Patriots helping him to succeed. Bless them all.
