Election Day Empty Chair Countdown – Day 14

Election Day Empty Chair Countdown – Day 14

Each day until Election Day we will feature a previously unpublished photo sent in by a Legal Insurrection reader on National Empty Chair Day, September 3, 2012.

The countdown continues with 14 days to go.

Today’s Empty Chair photo comes to us from Joe in Oregon who writes, “I’m thinking about attaching a sign that reads, “Chair Force One”.”

Heh. Or maybe “Chair Force Teh Won”?

(Note: DO NOT SEND additional photos, we are using only photos originally submitted on National Empty Chair Day.)

Thanks, FZ.

I know it’s a lot of work for you to do this, and we appreciate it more than you know, but you probably have more than 14 pictures left, so could we have multiples each day? They’re so much fun! 😀

Now you have gone and done it FS. Now I have the Pink Floyd Fuzzy Slippers version of The Wall with the lyric “Another Chair on the Wall” song stuck in my head! 😉

William…did Mourdock just put his foot in his mouth and throw the election away????

    While Mourdock denied that he ever said what is alleged, the fact remains that he said something about something and our good old friends, the MSM jumped right in, grabbed some words, and put them to their best foul purpose. So, all of us, please be careful out there and say only benign words, like “a” “the” “and” “oh” etc… Even that is not sufficient to avoid the errors that the MSM thrusts onto us.

What needs to be hammered is the SENATE! We need to take it back!!!

If Romney wins, the GOP holds the House but we fail to retake the Senate, it will be a hollow victory.

I know everyone is focusing on the POTUS election but the Senate is extremely critical.

If we fail to retake the Senate:

1. Obamacare will be impossible to reconcile or remove
2. You can forget about a national budget (continuing resolutions galore or “compromises”)
3. Reid will continue to block House bills
4. Getting judicial nominees will be hard to impossible.
5. Controlling big gov’t will become that much more difficult.

If you say, “Don’t worry, we’ll get the Senate back in 2014,” then you’re foolishly rolling the dice. Meanwhile, the entitlement state (Obamacare especially) will only grow and become entrenched. If you say, “Don’t worry, Romney will have coat tails and drag our Senate candidates across the finish line,” then you’re doubling down on your foolish dice throw.

Therefore, WE MUST double our efforts to win back the Senate. Much like our objections to Romney, we must see the bigger picture.

Don’t like Akin? He wasn’t your guy? Don’t like his “Homer Simpson” moment? You face palm Mourdock’s comment (which is being over-hyped by some)? You get depressed because the Democrats are throwing the kitchen sink against this GOP candidate or that? Well welcome to politics my fiends. It’s a bloodsport folks.

If this goes down badly, and we fail to get the Senate back, I will personally go to those in my community who got squishy this November and say, “Well, was it worth it? Obamacare has wrecked the health industry, your doctor left, your company dropped you off their insurance rolls, your premiums are skyrocketing, you can only get part-time work with no benefits, you can’t afford you State exchange plan, your “fine” for not having insurance is going up, and Grandpa can’t get his hip replacement….but look on the bright side, at least you have your “PRIDE” and “PRINCIPLES”!!!

This is PERSONAL to me. My mom is having open heart surgery next week and my dad has prostate cancer. I myself was recently diagnosed with MGUS (a potential precursor to Multiple Myeloma). Years from now, in my elderly years (when MGUS has a higher chance of turning into Myeloma) if I get bone cancer, the new treatments which could cure it or put it into remission will most likely be off limits to me. It WILL be a death sentence!

So please, I BEG OF YOU, keep your eyes the big picture.

I’m asking some of you to put aside any bitter feelings or concerns. We must remain vigilant. After the election, we must continue to replace the entrenched powers with conservatives and stay engaged with our communities.

The empty chair has brought us to the fiscal cliff!

How apropos are some of the lyrics from the song “Empty chairs at empty tables” from Les Miserables:

There’s a grief that can’t be spoken
There’s a pain goes on and on
Empty chairs at empty tables
Now my friends are dead and gone

Here they talked of revolution
Here it was they lit the flame
Here they sang about tomorrow
And tomorrow never came.
