A new ad is out in the Pennsylvania US Senate race where Tom Smith is trying trying to unseat the incumbent. This race is very close, the numbers have been drawing closer in recent weeks. This needs to be a national race, we all need to get behind Tom Smith.
“Pennsylvania families are struggling. But where’s Bob Casey? Casey backed the Wall St. bailout that allowed millions in bonuses to insurance and bank executives. The same ones we bailed out. The same ones who tanked our economy. And now they’ve given Casey over $2 million in campaign cash.
Defeat Bob Casey. We need someone who will fight for Pennsylvania families, not Wall St. millionaires.”
Tom Smith is running for the US Senate in Pennsylvania against incumbent Bob Casey. Smith has started to move his race from impossible, to possible. As has been reported, Smith went from trailing by 18-20 points, to now trailing by only 5 points, presumably as voters are actually paying attention. This latest ad from the Smith campaign is pretty sharp:
Pennsylvania has started to move toward Mitt Romney in recent polling, especially after Romney’s sound thumping of Obama in last week’s debate. Polls are starting to show Romney only trailing in Pennsylvania by 2 points and 3 points. As the presidential race tightens, so to the race for the US Senate.
Learn more about Tom Smith on his website, and support his campaign in any way you can if you’re so inclined. This is a US Senate seat that is in play, one of a handful our side can take back so we can demote Harry Reid to minority status.
In my efforts to look at Transformational Change in government, this is an amazing time to be a news junkie and writer. This video below of a speech that Leftist Harry Reid actually delivered in the US Senate chamber, is an opportunity to see the largesse that needs to be cut from the things that the federal government spends money on.
Here is the text of that video so that you can actually see this stupidity:
“The mean-spirited bill, H.R. 1,, eliminates National Public Broadcasting…It eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts. These programs create jobs. The National Endowment of the Humanities is the reason we have in northern Nevada every January a cowboy poetry festival. Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.”
I don’t think you can watch this video, and then read the words, and still believe that government spending is not out of control and that Transformational Change is not needed.
And before you attempt to tell me that we need PBS, NEA, NEH and NPR and all this other nonsense, realize that I don’t want the federal government funding this sort of leftist propaganda in any case. The Constitution does not call for this sort of heavy-handed intervention. If PBS and NPR are so great, let the market place decide that and fund it. Pacifica Radio is also full of leftists who hate America, but unlike NPR and PBS, Pacifica finds fellow travelers to pay the bills. The same should apply to NPR and PBS. It’s time to stop paying for these things. Let’s minimize the functions of government, keep more money in our communities and keep more of our own earnings.
