Everyone Gets Replaced But Tom Udall

 Posted:  November 5, 2014

New Mexico is a strange state. It wants to remain aloof, behind the times, dependent on the Federal government, full of excuses about its own poverty and its own unwillingness to change its ways. In this election, the entire country stood up and voiced their opinion that things needed to change. It was a vote for a change of policies. The country wanted to do something about jobs, about the economy, about the future.

In New Mexico, we put a man back in Congress for six years who has not done anything the last fifteen years but pass big government, non-free enterprise legislation. He has fought right to work and has championed all things that make it more expensive for NM business to hire and wages to rise naturally through market forces. He has championed partisan politics and voted with Obama over 90% of the time and not criticized his over-reach. Tom Udall has sent the IRS on political opponents like an attack dog, and has allowed Harry Reid to ignore legislation that has come to the Senate from a Republican House.

We are not sanguine about the Republicans doing much, but changes have to be made. While this isn’t a mandate, it is a note from the voters that they are tired of all this progressive thought.

New Mexico, now represented by a minority party in Congress, will have difficulties getting much of the things it needs. Tom Udall pushed for filibuster reform and the nonsensical campaign reform amendment. He pushes for environmental issues when that is only an issue 1% of Americans seriously care about. Instead of looking at the big picture New Mexico has sent the blue party back to Washington to represent us and the blue party is going to be sitting on the bench a lot. Tom Udall doesn’t play well with the Republicans and will be ineffective.

So, we we wrap this Website up and thank those who have visited it. We still remain independent and not a cheerleader for either party. We didn’t choose the candidates. We just tried to evaluate Tom Udall on his record.

New Mexico is a strange state but we live here. It is our home. Tom Udall might have got 55% of the vote but that means 45% of us do not support him, or his philosophy. He won’t change, but we are hoping that New Mexico changes enough to replace Martin Heinrich with a more traditional, conservative, free-enterprise candidate who is young, articulate, and able to move us in today’s world in New Mexico.

Thanks to the staff of this Website and it has been a pleasure to be part of the political process where everyone has a say and the internet makes that say possible.


Tom Udall/Allen Weh Debate Revisited

 Posted:  November 4, 2014

This was too little too late but the moment that crystallized our opinion of Tom Udall was his brief flippant comment about not knowing the difference between millions and billions. When he accused Allen Weh of making billions in his business, Allen Weh corrected Tom Udall’s error and said it was millions. Then, Tom Udall said he often got millions and billions wrong because of the decimal points.

The debate went on but this moment made a definite point to us.

Tom Udall has never cared about how much money he spends, how much he soaks hard working Americans to pay for his schemes.

Don’t you think a man should know the difference between millions and billions. We all learned about decimal points in mid-school. Tom Udall knows all about decimal points – he just doesn’t care about spending your money.

This is the Answer to the Tom Udall/Martin Heinrich Land Grab: Regulation Without Representation Are Fighting Issues

 Posted:  November 4, 2014

The above video explains quite well the counterpoint to Martin Heinrich’s New York Times editorial where he tries to make us feel better after giving away half a million acres of New Mexico land and justifying it with lame economic reasons, and protecting the land for generations to come.

Martin Heinrich and Tom Udall don’t give a damn about state’s rights, about the rights of New Mexican’s to manage New Mexico lands in any way they see fit. These two non-heroes want to keep us off the land forever, wants us to be tourists in our own state, unable to use the land but only visit it under the banner of Wilderness Off Limits.

State’s rights are a bigger and bigger issue and the state’s fighting for their own resources and the rights to make decisions about it reflect our own Revolutionary War when we had Taxation but no Representation.

The Wilderness Boys can saddle up and lasso our land and drag it to Washington D.C. Washington, according to them, can use all of our land that they can get.

The Wilderness Boys are at it again in northern New Mexico, burying local dissent and telling Pollyana stories in the liberal press about nature being only good for those who know what to do with it and that can be trusted with it – themselves.


What Your Fellow Americans Care About

 Posted:  November 4, 2014

The linked Gallup poll below recently put lots in perspective. Americans, it seems, are fairly consistent in determining that the following things are important:

  1. Unemployment and jobs are not acceptable.
  2. The Federal Debt and Deficit are not acceptable.
  3. The Congress and Federal government are not acceptable.
  4. Healthcare is not acceptable.
  5. Illegal immigration is not acceptable.
  6. The moral decline of the country is not acceptable.
  7. Education in the U.S. is not acceptable.

This pretty well covers the waterfront.

Tom Udall, during this campaign, has only talked about minimum wage, the environment, campaign reform, Allen Weh using his plane (maybe) for campaign issues, Burn Pit Registry, and a host of non-significant items.

If Tom Udall is responsible for the things you don’t like, and he won’t talk about them, then why would you send him back to Congress. If you aren’t going to vote your conscience and your pocketbook, then why are you voting?

Voter Turnout Likely Lower in New Mexico This Time Around

 Posted:  November 4, 2014

People have lots on their minds, too much to go to the polls to vote against people who raise their taxes, regulate their businesses, teach crazy stuff to their kids, and turn the keys to the bank over to the robbers.

This election is looking like a small turnout affair so maybe we will get a new U.S. Senator from New Mexico instead of Tom Udall?

If you don’t like the way things are looking, go vote. If you are happy with everything, just turn on your television and watch Jeopardy.
