A new documentary filmmaker is making a documentary called "How Obama Got Elected" with interviews showing what Obama voters actually knew about Senator Government before they decided to elect him President. The documentary also shows how the media may have been responsible for directing people's opinions of the candidates. Some of the answers are really quite comical, but it is sad. Of course, I'm sure that you could find some pretty uniformed McCain voters too, but John Zogby recently ran a poll that showed just how uninformed Obama voters really were. You can go the the website www.howobamagotelected.com to see the results.
My favorite part is when almost all interviewees say that Sarah Palin was the one who said that she campaigned in 57 states with only one to go. Of course, the person who said that was Barack Obama & he's about to become President of the United States.

There was a lot that didn't go our way on Election Day, but there was also a lot that did. In
Our meeting will take place at its normal location, Shogun Sushi, on the northeast corner of Oracle & River Rds. The meeting will be held on Monday, November 24 & will begin @ 7 pm.
Joining us at our meeting as a special guest will be former State Representative Randy Graf, who also ran twice for Congress in CD8. He will give his analysis of how events unfolded, along with his opinions of what the Republican Party needs to do in order to move forward. Some Republicans, such as California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, have suggested that the Republican Party needs to abandon its conservative principles in order to win future elections. This will be one of the topics of discussion at our meeting.
The meeting will be a time to reflect & a time to plan how we will move forward as a Club & as a Party. With Democrats holding large majorities in both the US House & Senate, it is important that
Please RSVP with Tyler Mott if you will be able to attend the meeting. It is an exciting time & we cannot give up or become discouraged. I look forward to seeing you all there.

Now, the good part: what this means to us is that Arizona Secretary of State Jan Brewer, a Republican, will become Governor of Arizona! With Republican gains in both houses of the State Legislature and some of our more liberal Republicans being replaced by more Conservative Republicans, this is great news for everybody.
All of Napolitano's ridiculous vetoes of the previous 5 1/2 years will be a thing of the past. We will no longer have a person like Napolitano who is staunchly pro-abortion vetoing common sense abortion restrictions at the state level.
Happy days are here again!
It seems like we here in Arizona might be the only beneficiaries to this year's election results anywhere in America. Good riddance Janet. Don't let the door hit you on the way out!

We have only 1 more day until Election Day! And we need your help! Depending on where you live, there are many phone banking opportunities tomorrow & Election Day. We also have many positions open for poll watchers, poll runners & volunteers of every sort on Election Day!
OUR REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES NEED YOUR HELP & THEY NEED IT NOW!
If you can help for even 30 minutes tomorrow or Election Day, we could use your help.
Start by going to Pima County Republican Party headquarters @ 5447 E. 5th Street, Suite 100 in Tucson (directions here) or calling them @ 520-321-1492 if you live in Central, East or South Tucson.
If you live in North, Northwest Tucson, Marana, or Oro Valley, then our Northwest headquarters @ 1171 E. Rancho Vistoso Blvd, Suite 111 in Oro Valley (directions here) might be better for you on Election Day. You can call Linda @ 520-825-0334.
We have a lot of big races!
Of course, the big one is the race for President & John McCain & Sarah Palin are coming on strong! Help us prove the polls wrong on Election Day.
After that, we have a big race for Congress in District 8 & Tim Bee needs your help too!
Our biggest races for the State Legislature are in Districts 26 & 30. Al Melvin, Vic Williams, & Marilyn Zerull could really use your help making phone calls to get supporters out for them. Our big races in District 30 are for the State House. In that district, Frank Antenori & Dave Gowan really need your help. The last thing in the world that we need is a State Legislature that will do the bigging of Janet Napolitano. There are many other big races for State Legislature also. And many of these candidates have talked at our meetings.
The last big, big race is for Pima County Supervisor in District 3. We need to get Barney Brenner elected to the board. That will give Republicans the majority on the board & should give us the advantage when redistricting comes around after the next Census. Barney has asked for our help & I will be helping him on Election Day. Any of you who would also like to help with Barney's election, please let me know.
If any of you have any questions about where to go to help, you can call me @ 520-444-6280.
*Regarding voting, make sure that you vote! Voting closes @ 7 pm this Tuesday. If you have a Vote-by-Mail Ballot, it must be received in the mail no later than 7 pm that Tuesday. SO, IT'S ALREADY TOO LATE TO MAIL YOUR BALLOT BACK NOW! But don't fear, you can also drop your ballot off at any polling station before 7 pm on Tuesday & it will still be counted.
If you have questions about where to go to vote, click on this link & it will tell you where your polling place is. If you have any other questions about the voting process, you can call the Pima County Recorder's Office @ 520-740-4330.
Good luck & we will win on Tuesday if we work as hard as we can these last couple days!
