• Welcome Purple People

    To me Purple People are those of us who are neither Republican Red nor Democrat Blue; we find ourselves in between. The internet often represents those on the far left or the far right; this site is for those of us in the middle.

    Since there are a variety of non-conformists that consider themselves Independents, here's a clarification. The point of view of this blog is basically Realist/Libertarian light...

    -Pro Small Government, bureaucracies tend to be wasteful and inefficient.

    -Government should not be the morality police.

    -Less waste, lower taxes. Taxes are okay if spent wisely. Roads and schools need funding. Be smart with my money and I won't complain.

    -Government shouldn't babysit adults. Help kids and assist people who have serious problems, but stop trying to protect everyone from themselves.

    -Foreign policy should be conducted by people with brains and experience. Think, don't be reckless and don't be politically motivated. Remember that the U.S. is not the only country in the world.

    -Tone down the rhetoric and remember your manners. Play nicely and don't belittle people who disagree with you.

Positive Signs for the McCain Campaign

1. Base united and energized with Palin pick.

2. Strong support from both Independents and Democrats.

3. Obama’s money advantage is shrinking. Party money combine with campaign money makes the money race extremely close.

4. During primaries Obama tended to poll better than he performed except in blowout situations. McCain tended to perform better over even with polls.

5. The youth vote is fickle, the senior vote is not. While no one knows who will turn out in the end, stats say the person who has consistently voted over the years will show up on election day, while first time voters don’t have a strong turn out record.

6. The debates are coming. Question and answer is McCain’s strong suite, and not Obama’s.

7. Volunteer efforts are improved. State volunteer info - Phone from home volunteer info.

8. Energy - Winter’s coming and as Dems stall on the energy bill, and people have to pay for heating oil, gasoline, and electricity; the ‘do everything’ approach of Republicans, already popular, will likely gain more traction as the days get shorter and colder.

9. McCain is a closer. Looking at the primaries as a guide McCain was behind almost the entire election except for election day. Obama, on the other hand, had a burst at the beginning, but had trouble closing out the race even when the numbers were decisively in his favor.

10. The VP picks. Palin brings excitement and energy, no one pays any attention to Biden except when he sticks his foot in his mouth.

  1. There are four more reasons:

    1- It is asking a lot from people to vote for somebody who was or is associated to Wright, Ayers and Rezko.
    2- As in 2004, war and economics.
    3- Objectively, McCain is better than Obama.
    4- Obama is playing hide-and-seek.

  2. then there is the fact that noone wants to vote for a sexist egotistical lying hypocritical socialist moron who gives a good speech.

  3. [...] Positive Signs for the McCain Campaign [...]

  4. It has come to light that some of Obama’s advisors were CEO’s of the failed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
    His donations, from Fannie Mae, over the years for his campaign have been over $100,000.
    Obama achides Mccain about lobbyists on his campaign staff and then it was disclosed that he accepted money from Fannie May execs. A change we can believe in…..not !
    Obama seems hypocritical !
    It’s interesting that the chairman of the senate banking committee Chris Dodd received about $165,000 from Fannie and Freddie. His committee is supposed to conduct oversight ohfthe financial institutions. Sleeping at the switch there Dodd ?
    Whre was Obama when McCain supported a bill which may have headed off this financial crisis ?
