LIBERTY COUNTY OFFICIALLY “REPUBLICAN” WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALLY “DEMOCRAT”


In the most negative campaign ever run by an incumbent President, the 44th President of the United States held on to the White House as half the country went to bed Tuesday night knowing the man they trusted to turn the economy around was still at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
 
In Liberty County the impact of Barack Obama being at the top of the local voters ballots was not quite so positive for local Democrats. More than three out of every four voters voted for Mitt Romney as Obama set the county record for the lowest percentage vote for any incumbent or for any Democrat or Republican.
 
For years many of Liberty County voters have said “I vote for the man, not the party”. And for years elected officials thought that they had some great personal magnetism or a brilliant strategy or that voters recognized their special talents and abilities. Some ridiculed local Republican candidates who fared poorly in the polls. But the evidence is in. Local Democrats were beaten every bit as badly as Republicans were just a few years ago. People did not go down the ballot and “vote for the man” as much as some tried to claim.
 
What does this say to us? First we must point out that KSHN radio after all of these years finally came out with a little campaign of their own to discourage straight ticket voting. It would have been perceived as fair and balanced to have done that when Republicans had a 100 year losing streak! But back to the point – what does it say?
 
A political candidate’s first decision is choosing the party he or she will run in. To many voters in what is known as the Bible belt, this decision is becoming increasingly important as Democrats have embraced same sex marriage, liberal laws governing abortion, and an attitude of “ask not what you can do for your country, but ask what your country can do for you.”
 
The same local Democrats that seemed invincible as they held office for years were easily beaten tonight. The party they ran in was a major reason for most of their defeats. Todd Fontenot, Lee Groce, and Phil Fitzgerald, all Democrats, were called an "evil empire" by their fellow Democrat Commissioner Melvin Hunt. But despite Hunt’s efforts to separate himself from the entire stench of recent local scandals around the courthouse, he could not overcome his party affiliation with Obama and his lack of effort to stop what he clearly recognized as “evil”. All of the money wasting and politically partisan game playing were seldom challenged. Connie Henderson working for Democrats and receiving a county check was never made an issue. Bond money and ever rising property appraisals was never an issue. So Melvin is defeated too.
 
Tonight in this country Barack Obama was re-elected. And now most voters in Texas will have to depend on God and the Republican dominated House of Representatives to protect us from someone who has indicated he thinks he can improve on the outdated ideas in the U.S. Constitution. But also tonight in this county Liberty County has been totally emancipated from more than a century of one party dominance. We are now electing people from a party that polls show are more in line with the values of the people in this area. Now all we have to do is be vigilante and keep from allowing the corrupt from getting a toe hold in this party.

The main thing that disgusts me in this election (and the last) is all these RINO's that skanked away from their sinking ship and over to the Republican party. They managed once again to pull the wool over uneducated, uninformed voters with their "political epiphany". I see Tim "I'm the Law" Allison has gone gangsta, doing his Danny Diaz impersonation. I hope he gets his badge pulled. The guy he put in cuffs should sue him for violation of civil rights. I see another Liberty County lawsuit brewing. What a pus bag.

and the mass exodus begins, as businesses close, to avoid the new year's taxes and costs of obamacare. On Halloween, the Shepherd scrap yard closed. This Friday, Berni's Bridal/promwear shop of Cleveland, closes. Plantation restaurant is already gone. So are over 4 dozen businesses in Cleveland, victims of unrelenting code changes, beautification rules, plumbing backflow upgrades, and ever rising taxes. 2013 brings the 13.6% city property tax increase for Clevaland, and all of the Clinton era taxes. Add the cost of Obamacare, and small businesses will give it up, and close forever. The greatest recession and depression of our lifetimes, now begins.

^^^ oh yeah? Wait till Walmart gets the full cost of obamacare, and closes local stores... Then, start on McDonald's, Subway, Church's, Sonic, and the rest of the fast food places. Add the diners, tire shops, florists, and auto repair places. The list of businesses that are unable to stomach the onslaught of costs, fees, taxes and benefits is HUGE!

Jimmy Carter may finally get some relief now. Known as the "worst President in our lifetime", now Obama has come to his rescue.

oh, so that's why WalMart got rid of all of the 85 year old greeters (not that they could outrun, catch, or apprehend the legions of shoplifters.) Who could possibly afford their monumental health insurance premiums, under Obamacare's mandate??? Hello, forced retirements for all of the WWII, Korean War, and baby boomer generations.

Nobody's insurance will pay, once the social security/medicare age kicks in, and becomes the primary insurance for those age groups.

Maybe this is why the gen X-er's so blindly supported Obama's "Hope and Change." Maybe this is where all of their jobs will be coming from: the ousting of the seniors, who wouldn't retire at 65. Of course, it could also backfire, and the seniors' jobs never be refilled... (oops, ""slight miscalculation", youngsters) the greatest depression is still ON)!

and the saga continues..., as Hillary leaves Secretary of State- to campaign for president in 2016 and 2020. Obama appears to be the
"insert" into the original plan of 32 years of Clinton/Gore (8 Bill, 8 Gore, 8 Hillary, 8 Chelsea.) With Gore's presidential bid's demise, and Obama's substitution; the 32 year plan continues- Hillary in 2016/2020, followed by Chelsea- in 2024 and 2028 (Obviously, she won't need 35 birthdays, per the Constitution, since Obama set the precedent- birth certificates "optional.")

Saddest of all, the Speaker of the House announces "Mr. President," the Republicans in Washington, are "ready to be led." To this, the democrats chortle: haha "sign here"- to global welfare, queer nation, and global redistribution of wealth (so much for individual ownership of US pensions, stock funds, mutual funds, and IRA's.)

Hello, third world country! Let's see the mega-spoiled Americans live in poverty, like Ethiopia and Bangledesh (except the political elite, of course, who will exempt themselves- just as they did from Obamacare)!

NEWSFLASH: Social Security soon bankrupts, with the passing of the amnesty bill (which awards the trust fund to Mexico)!

Following Obama's stinging victory,

(largely from 71% of the hispanic vote, following last summer's wholesale presidential pardon to all illegals (together with the administrative blanket policy of non-enforcement of deportation laws);

now the GOP leadership is promising to cater to the illegals!!! OMG see:

All of us, who don't have 30 year pensions (the hallmark of the WWII generation), are in for a severe retirement funding problem! BTW: the few baby boomer generation members, who have a 30 year pension, are mostly government employees. Now, that will get the seniors off the tour buses and cruise ships... no gottee no money, no more!

It sure would be hilarious if hcnonline, and all of Nesa's rags... couldn't afford their own Clinton era taxes and Obamacare, and closed too! Democraps, victims of their own folly (just like the Clinton era unemployeds, protesting at Occupy Wall Street.) note: hurricane Sandy did a much better job of "occupying" Wall St, didn't it? lmao

I dont know who the commissioner is that is responsible for his people in pct. 4 and the way they drive the county vehicles but Im mad. Im a single mother of two and these pct. 4 vehicles have almost hit me twice and ran me off the road once in the past year. How can the county police officers allow these pct. 4 people get away with driving so care;less and imprudently? Will the police and judges please do something about these people. My sister had them almost run into her as they were driving high speed way over the speed limit this year. I just couldn't sleep after another near miss today without saying something. Thank you.

Appraisals typically cost anywhere from $350 to $400. However, if the house is gigantic, multi-unit or in the boondocks, it could run more. The cost varies on property type, location and square footage.Property Appraisal
