The widespread storm damage and possible longterm power outages have a lot of people wondering if next Tuesday’s election will be postponed. It’s not likely, since it would take an act of Congress, and that would prolong the election season longer than most people could stand. But if the storm does depress voting in states along the East Coast, how would it affect the outcome? Local races would definitely be affected, but the Presidential race probably not at much. Ironically, it’s Democrats who want to do away with the Electoral College. But thanks to that, blue states would get just as much say over the election, no matter what their vote total. Under the national popular vote that the left prefers, a hurricane in the blue states might result in a Republican landslide.

Early voting could also blunt the storm’s effects. More Americans are taking advantage of that. According to the latest Gallup poll, 15 percent of registered voters had already cast their ballots by last Sunday, and 33 percent say they plan to vote early. Early voting usually benefits Democrats, but this year may prove the exception. Gallup found that among those who said they’ve already voted, Romney leads Obama by 52 to 45 percent. Sounds like a lot of Republicans expect the lines on Election Day to vote for Romney to look like the lines for a sandwich on Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. Not that a lot of Republicans would mind standing in line for either one.

    Chik-fil-A should give out chicken sandwiches to the voters standing in the long lines tomorrow! Wouldn't THAT be a hoot!

    Our most heartfelt prayers go to the residents of the east coast who were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. As much as there are fears this could extend the timeframe for voting (which would also dismay me), I'm wondering about early voters from that region. Who is looking into ensuring that those who were unfortunately killed by "Sandy" had not early voted. Last week the issue was raised of a WWII veteran who early voted from his hospital bed. He died within 24 hours. The last I heard his vote would not count because he expired prior to Nov 6. Will the same hold true for those unfortunate souls on the east coast?

    I want to know if this is true,and I`m sure the American people want to know if it is true.

    "Kapi'olani Maternity Gynecological Hospital ". This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called "KauiKeolani Children's Hospital" and "Kapi'olani Maternity Home", respectively. The name did not change to Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged. How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978?
    An intensive investigation has revealed the identity of the man whose Social Security number (SSN) is being used by President Obama:
    Jean Paul Ludwig, who was born in France in 1890, immigrated to the United States in 1924, and was assigned SSN 042-68-4425 (Obama's current SSN) on or About March 1977.
    Ludwig lived most of his adult life in Connecticut . Because of that, his SSN begins with the digits 042, which are among only a select few reserved for Connecticut residents.
    Obama never lived or worked in that state! Therefore, there is no reason on earth for his SSN to start with the digits 042. None whatsoever!
    Now comes the best part! Ludwig spent the final months of his life in Hawaii , where he died.
    Conveniently, Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, worked part-time in the Probate Office in the Honolulu Hawaii Courthouse, and therefore had access to the SSNs of deceased individuals.
    The Social Security Administration was never informed of Ludwig's death, and because he never received Social Security benefits there were no benefits to stop and therefore, no questions were ever raised. The suspicion, of course, is that Dunham, knowing her grandson was not a U.S. Citizen, either because he was born in Kenya or became a citizen of Indonesia upon his adoption by Lolo Soetoro simply scoured the probate records until she found someone who died who was not receiving Social Security benefits, and selected Mr. Ludwigs Connecticut SSN for Obama.
    Just wait until Trump gets past the birth certificate and onto the issue of Barry O's use of a stolen SSN. You will see leftist heads exploding, because they will have no way of defending Obama.
    Although many Americans do not understand the meaning of the term "natural born" there are few who do not understand that if you are using someone else's SSN it is a clear indication of fraud.
    Let's all get this information out to everybody. If the voters of this great nation can succeed in bringing this lying, deceitful, cheating, corrupt, impostor to justice it will be the biggest and best news in decades for our country and the world.
