  • McCain stands for a moderate
    June 27, 2008 6:01 p.m.

    Mel Martinez, conservative from Florida, who I voted for, sends you out a form letter, never answers your questions once you send him anything, says it's the oil companies' fault. How do we get rid of these people? How do get our country back? You vote them out of office, and you focus on voting on conservatives, not Republicans. The people who make the political decisions, the political calls, the laws and what have you, are people we elect. This is all about conservatism beating liberalism. It's really no more complicated than that. It's just that we don't have any elected conservative leaders, I'm distressed that the people in our country have been manipulated to the point that every June we sit around and pant - (panting) - waiting for the Supreme Court to tell us what is. The Supreme Court is no longer just the ultimate authority on legal and constitutional matters. The Supreme Court has now taken upon itself the role to determine our political outcomes as well, to decide controversial political outcomes.

  • McCain/Obama Stand For

    McCain stands for the United States of America created under the Constitution, not the socialist make-over ("change") that Obama proposes, "changed" by fiat interpretation of activist Supreme Court judges whom he would appoint. I'm amazed that so many Americans are falling for the same old tired, rejected and failed policies proposed by Obama's predecessors--Dukakis, Mondale, McGovern, Carter, Kerry, Gore and now the great one Obama, also destined for failure. No matter how Obama tries to disguise them, he proposes nothing new--the same old tired, rejected, failed policies of Democratic candidates of the past forty years, but I guess hope springs eternal in the human breast.

    GOP exceeded our fundraising expectations at the 2008 Florida Victory Dinner.This year's Victory Dinner honored Florida Governors Charlie Crist, Jeb Bush, Bob Martinez, and Claude Kirk. We joined numerous Republican elected officials and dedicated supporters to celebrate Republican achievements over the decades, culminating in the extraordinary events of the past year under the leadership of Governor Crist.The event raised over $1.5 million.This week, Governor Crist unveiled a strategy to help preserve Florida's Everglades. The State of Florida came to an agreement with the South Florida Water Management and the United States Sugar Corporation to purchase of nearly 300 square miles spanning four counties in South Florida.The acquisition of this land will provide the opportunity to restore the Everglades and protect Lake Okeechobee, the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers and their respective estuaries. Governor Crist's epic announcement kicked off this week's 2008 Serve to Preserve Florida Summit on Global Climate in Miami. The summit focused on stimulating Florida's economic development while using clean technologies.

  • This is not good at all

    Mc Cain stands for his VP buddy Charlie Crist. I am really shocked that Gov. Charlie Crist (and he's a conservative?) did not block this, he did nothing to stop it, making families gamble because of the high gas prices in Florida, at $4.50 a gal for reg gas. Tallahassee, Florida - Starting on Monday, June 30, the Florida Lottery is starting a new game that could help ease your pain at the pump - forever. Tickets for the "Summer Cash" game go on sale for eight weeks - from June 30 to Tuesday, August 26 - for $5 a ticket. Drawings will be held every Wednesday and prizes include "Gas for a Year", "Gas for Life" (or $52,000 cash), and $250,000.

    Mc Cain stands for - not for lower gas prices at the pumps right now - but several years from now with more drilling?. All while we wait to see what this will do. Oil futures climbed briefly to a record above $142 a barrel Friday on expectations that the weakening dollar, a major factor in crude's stratospheric rise, will extend its decline and add to oil's appeal. Retail gas prices inched lower overnight, but are likely to resume their own trek into record territory now that oil futures have broken out of the trading range where they had been for nearly three weeks. Light, sweet crude for August delivery rose as high as $142.26 a barrel in premarket electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange before pulling back to trade up $1.46 at $141.10. On Thursday, the contract shot past $140 and rose more than $5 to a settlement record. Oil rose Thursday in part on comments by OPEC officials; the organization's president predicted prices will rise further, and a top Libyan oil official suggested his nation may cut production.
