One cannot turn on the news it seems without wondering how the reality shows that have captivated so many over the years escaped the television and made it to one of the most important events we patronize.
Each political event happening daily, further embellished by speculation or commentary of the trained pundits of pop culture. Each misstep of the character of the day amplified by the 24 hour news cycle stacking opinion for a better view of the tragedy that is sometimes humanity. Not in that we fail, but rather that we titillate and secret our joy about the failures that bring about a new player in the game of the day. Somehow our darkened souls must find comfort in the perpetual failings that only a well oiled machinery of media attention can accentuate.
We have reached the bottom.
I do not intend to remain at there however. I will not sit idly by while the character of good folk continues to be sacrificed to create the drama for next week's lust for tragedy.
I ask each of you to consider what happens if the Marxist in the white house is allowed to desecrate our great country beyond 2012. Between his utter disregard for the Congress, our constitution, or private property, a term fully hardened by a "mandate" of a win, would mean the end of the US as we know it.

Republican leadership in the United States house and the Senate and apparently Rick Perry have drafted a letter to the governors regarding popular vote.
The letter is very clear about the protections afforded smaller states with regard to the electoral college. It also touches on the spawning of the recent movement trying to advance NPV. The letter is in support of the electoral college as it is. In fact as it concludes:
"It Underscores the importance of federalism to the founders and it embodies the balance they aimed to achieve through deference to states with smaller populations and by insuring that the interest of these states be reflected in national decision-making."
Sorry Saul, and/or any others who wish to join with the progressive left on such a reckless abuse of our presidential selection process.
Ain't gonna happen.
