Mississippi Presidential Primaries

Today is the primary for President in Mississippi. I voted absentee for DUNCAN HUNTER! Yeah, I know he dropped out, but I could not vote for McCain. Needless to say, no person with a brain can vote for Hillary or Barry. So brainless people, knock yourselves out.

A few weeks ago, I asked a question on Barry's info line and have since received seventy-nine e-mails from the campaign, not one of which has an answer to my question or any other policy proposals. Want to see some? Well, okay.

My very simple question: If Barry wants to pay for his healthcare program by allowing the tax cuts to expire on people making over two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year, what kind of arithmetic is being employed since those tax cuts INCREASED revenue by four percent?

From David Plouffe, the idiot that answers the info mail according to the first twenty-something messages I received. Blah, blah, blah, if you make a donation right now, you will also receive a "One of the Million" supporter t-shirt. Let your friends and family know that you support Barack Obama and are proud to be part of this movement.

My response to his drivel: Mr. Plouffe, thank you for this response, however you must have read my question wrong. I asked, if Obama is planning on paying for his universal healthcare plan by allowing to expire the tax cuts on those making over two hundred fifty thousand a year, how does he do that with less money in revenue? You see, those tax cuts increased revenue to the Fed, the way that they always do. How can Obama spend more money when his very policies reduce revenue? That is what I would like answered, please.

His response to my repeated question: Yadda, yadda, yadda, Early this morning, we reached one million people owning a piece of this campaign. Think about that for a minute. One million people like you own a stake in a grassroots movement that is not just competing, but thriving, in a political process that's been dominated by special interests for far too long. You have given your time, energy, and passion to bring about change. And it's working.

I thought about that for a minute and came to the conclusion that if there are only one million people contributing to his campaign, that means that 164,000,000 Democrats kinda think that he sucks and then I responded: This information is all well and good, but I asked a very specific question about financing of the healthcare plan. I would like to know if Obama allows the tax cuts to expire for those making over 250,000 dollars a year, a tax cut that INCREASED Federal revenues, how does he plan to pay for healthcare with less money? This is a very simple question, is there an answer?

He hits me back: Hundreds of thousands of new supporters have joined our movement for change in the past few weeks, and we want to make sure everyone knows about all the opportunities to get involved in your community and online. Check out the resources below -- learn how you can connect with fellow supporters, organize in your neighborhood, build our national grassroots organization, and stay in touch with the very latest campaign news. Explore these resources yourself and forward this message to anyone you know who wants to get involved.

I step up yet again: I certainly appreciate Senator Obama continuing to send these messages out, however I asked a very direct question and not once have I received a response related to my question. I will ask one more time and then I will report on the fact that I cannot receive any straight answers from Senator Obama. This is the info e-mail address from the website and I have never received an answer to my question, but the campaign has sent me numerous e-mails now requesting my support, vote, and money. To me, this is beginning to qualify as spam.

My question: If Obama plans on paying for his healthcare plan by allowing the tax cuts to expire on people making 250,000 dollars a year or greater, since those tax cuts actually raised the amount of revenue coming into the Federal government, how will he increase spending while diminishing the revenue? This is mathmatically impossible. Please explain.

Again they respond, this time from Mississippi Barry HQ: Yesterday, supporters all across the country responded to Barack's request by making more than 300,000 calls into crucial March 4th primary states. We reached our goal of one million calls much faster than expected, so we're setting a new goal: 1,500,000 calls to voters by Tuesday. Use our online phonebanking tool and start making calls right now:

My turn: I asked a question on the info link on Senator Obama's website three weeks ago. Since that time, I have received thirty-seven e-mails from the campaign requesting donations and help on the campaign, but never once have I received a reply to my question. If Senator Obama so deperately wants my vote, why will the campaign not respond to my question? Maybe the Mississippi Obama campaign group will.

I asked this: Since Senator Obama has decided to pay for his universal healthcare plan by allowing the tax cuts to expire on people earning 250,000 dollars or more a year, how is this possible? The tax cuts on this very segment of our population increased revenues to the Federal government. This is proven by the increased receipts into the IRS. If he makes a policy change that reduces the amount of revenue, how can he increase the expenditures without making cuts somewhere else? That does not make sense. What programs are going to be cut because of this reduction in revenue and by how much?

Mississippi Barry HQ responds, from Aaron Gardner: The race for the Democratic nomination has come to Mississippi. In less than one week, Mississippi voters will be making their voices heard in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, March 11th. The work we do -- or don't do -- between now and Primary Day will make the difference for Barack. So join your fellow supporters as we canvass communities across the state -- going door-to-door and reaching out to Mississippi voters face-to-face. Canvasses are happening every day from Saturday through Tuesday. Sign up now to join a canvass near you.

My final reply, I have given up getting one simple answer from Barry's campaign: Aaron,
I will NOT be voting for Barry Obama in any election. I have e-mailed this campaign thirty-two times to try to get ONE answer to ONE question. I have received, to date, 48 e-mails in less than three weeks from the Obama campaign begging for money and time, but not once has anyone replied to my simple request for information. Obama and his staff are unresponsive to the voters and I will do everything in my power to ensure that Obama never wins another election as long as he lives, simply because he only cares about adding more idiots to the government dole, more idiots like you, Aaron. Aaron, there should be some kind of inkling in your head that you, Aaron Gardner are the dumbest human being to ever walk the face of the Earth because you are so stupid as to back an admitted fascist. Barry Obama is quite possibly the worse candidate, at the worst time, with the worst record. I honestly hope that Barry and his entire staff has a car wreck this afternoon. I really HOPE that. I have given this idiotic campaign the chance to CHANGE from stupid, moronic platitudes and still you refuse. Aaron, go drink some bleach and help the whole world out.

This morning I received my reply, from Michelle, no less: This campaign has always been about more than just an election.
When Barack and I first talked about doing this, we agreed that there was a unique opportunity for change in this country -- a real chance to move beyond the divisive politics of the past and bring people together around our shared hopes for a better future for all Americans.
Today, America is watching Mississippi.
All across the country, people are following the results of today's primary and waiting to see if Mississippi is ready for real change.
Send a message that you're ready for a new kind of leadership and a new kind of politics. Vote for change today, and make sure your friends and family get out and vote as well.
The polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and you can use our online tool to find your polling location: LINK to campaign website.
We've come a long way since last February. And today, the goal of real change is within reach.
But there's still a lot of work to do -- and today, we need you to go to the polls and make your voice heard.
Take a moment and watch this video of a Mississippi supporter talking about the importance of getting out to vote today. Share it with your friends and family and encourage them to join you in voting for change: LINK to Pay-Pal donations site.
Thanks for everything you've done,
P.S. -- Here are a few details and rules that should make your day go smoothly:
Polls are open 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you are in line at 7:00 p.m., you must be allowed to vote.
All registered voters can vote in the Democratic Primary, even Republicans and Independents.
If you believe you were left off the voter list or otherwise prevented from regular voting by error, you must be allowed to cast a provisional ballot.
No identification is required at the polling place unless you are a first-time voter. If you are a first-time voter in Mississippi who registered by mail and did not provide identification at that time, you should bring a valid photo ID, current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document that shows your name and address.
If you have any problems or questions, call our voter hotline at 1-866-675-2008 and press 4. And then a LINK to a legalese thing about whining about being disenfrachised.

My response to Michelle: Ms. Obama, I searched my absentee ballot for the box marked "change." It was not there, but your dumbass husband's name was. I made certain to stay as far away from that box as possible, I do not want your fascist lawyers to try to make some case for your idiot husband getting my vote, where is your integrity, have you no shame? You words are the single most devisive statements that I have ever heard and you should immediately leave this country. This country has offered you everything that you have been given, you deserve none of it. I hope that you know that there are no intelligent people voting for your husband, so if you pull that lever for Barry, you are an idiot. Go to Cuba to be with your comrades, dumbass.

I'll let you know what she replies, because you know that she will.

These folks are more persistant than John Kerry was.
