Another conservative lady comes to Arizona’s defense, and by doing so, America’s as well. Ruth McClung is a physicist who is concerned about the direction of our country, not a career politician, concerned with lining their pockets.

…I cannot stand on the sidelines when politicians in Washington (like my opponent) are grabbing control of our personal freedoms, wrecking our economy, recklessly spending our money, and destroying America’s greatness. We need to return to limited government, personal responsibility and integrity, a strong work ethic, and opportunity for all. The American dream is to be self reliant and work to achieve the life that you want, not live off the government.

As a nation, we face many complex challenges requiring innovative solutions. My technical knowledge and expertise in scientific problem solving will be valuable in solving these problems. I will take strong, decisive stands on border security and immigration, curbing out-of-control government debt, and promoting job creation through a free market economy. I am committed to limiting our government and defending our Constitution. Working as a physicist, I understand the importance of finding the right solution instead of causing new problems. Maybe it does take a rocket scientist.

Some random thoughts before I commence on the weekend duties:

I see that Joel Demos won the TBF poll this week. I’ll be donating to his campaign shortly.

From Joel’s website:

I cannot sit still while our country goes down a road that has proven to lead to financial ruin. For my children and yours, my family has decided to embark on this journey to help restore some sanity to Washington.

Thanks to Right Klik for running the Ten Buck Fridays poll and Conscientiously Conservative for coming up with the original concept. Great work both of you and the over 80 bloggers who participate. Speaking of CC, I just looked and realized, she’s not on my blogroll! DOH!

Wait a second while I correct that omission.

While I’m on the subject of blogroll, There are a couple of additions you may be interested in: Holding the Line in Texas, and Fleece Me, who was kind enough to link to the Socia.list page.

We’re down to the last few weeks of the campaign season. Is it just me or do any of you feel a bit burned out from all of the politics? I know I am. Not being a career political junkie or reporter, this season has got to be the most focused I’ve ever been on politics. It wears on a robot. I need a good lube job. And a shot of rum. How do the politicians do it? Are they all on coke?

After the election, I’m going to form a new band or at least join one.  I’m feeling the urge to beat on some skins and stretch out the vocal chords. I’ve definitely got some frustration that needs venting. Not sure how much of those happenings I’ll post on this blog though, as some people are more interested in politics than music and I like my political anonymity. I may have to start another, just to separate the two. Or maybe another page on this one. It’s up in the air for now. We’ll see.

For the rest of the weekend, posting may be lite. My freaking DSL is on the fritz again. Come this Tuesday, that problem will hopefully be solved. The ‘bot is going to cable. Buh-Bye ATT with your dropped service every 5 minutes and a ten minute post taking an hour to complete. Also, my house needs cleaning and the studio needs some maintenance. Bottom line is, it’s just too pretty outside to spend dealing with an off and on internet connection, so there you have it.

Speaking of music, here’s one of my faves from the Doobies:

Enjoy your weekend, my friends.

With thanks to Right Klik:

Ten Buck Fridays congratulates Dale Glading on his victory in this week’s TBF poll.

Here’s a little background information on Mr. Glading:

Dale Glading, 50, is the Founder and Executive Director of The Saints Prison Ministry. Headquartered in Moorestown, New Jersey, “The Saints” is the largest athletic prison ministry in the country with branch offices in Charlotte, NC, and Colorado Springs, CO…

A lifetime resident of South Jersey, Dale earned a Bachelor of Science degree with summa cum laude honors in Community Recreation from Temple University in 1981. He served as Recreation Director at the Wiley Christian Retirement Community for 10 years before entering full-time ministry with The Saints in 1994. During his years at Wiley, Dale developed a deep empathy for seniors and an understanding of the issues that concern them most…

Dale Glading on the issues: (excerpts)

It is time that the career politicians in Washington stopped trying to buy votes with taxpayers’ money and learned to live within their means instead. That is why I support Rep. Mike Pence’s proposed Balanced Budget Amendment that limits government spending to 20% of the GDP. I have also endorsed Rep. Todd Tiahrt’s bill to place a moratorium on all federal earmarks…

When I think about education, I consider two very important factors. The first is that our children are our most precious treasures as well as the greatest “natural resource” that America has. Second, competition breeds excellence in every area of life, including education.

That’s why I strongly support the idea of school choice. Failing schools shouldn’t be rewarded with a locked-in clientele, and children suffering in underperforming schools shouldn’t be relegated to receiving a substandard education simply because of where they live…

…how about lowering the corporate tax rate which is currently the second highest in the world? That would make American companies more competitive internationally and provide business owners with the capital they need to expand and hire more workers.

And while we’re at it, how about lowering the income tax rates for ALL Americans so we have more disposable income to better care for our families and better fuel the economy. The bottom line is that we all work hard for our money and as such, we should all be able to keep more of it…

The new Ten Buck Friday poll is up. You’ll notice that John Faulk from (TX- 18), is again included. I know you know who I voted for, right? Mr. Faulk is running against that train-wreck queen Sheila Jackson Lee, who is featured, not in a good way, as one of the 11 Texans who voted for Obamacare on this site somewhere or another.

Let’s vote for John Faulk in this weeks poll and get him a monetary boost to help dethrone the queen, shall we?

This week, RightKlik is evidently engaged in some capitalistic endeavor so No Sheeples Here has stepped up to compile a list of links for us. Hey, thanks Carol!

With a solid majority of the votes, Jesse Kelly wins this week’s Ten Buck Fridays poll.
Jesse Kelly is a enthusiastic Reagan Republican who has earned the endorsement of Mark Levin. In my estimation, there’s no more convincing evidence of one’s conservative credentials than a seal of approval from “the Great One.” But don’t take Levin’s word for it. Listen to Jesse Kelly speak for himself. You’ll be thoroughly impressed, I guarantee it:

Jesse Kelly beat a liberal Republican in the primary, now he faces a Obama Democrat in the general election.
If you haven’t started giving to conservative candidates on a weekly basis, now is the time to start, and Jesse Kelly is an exceptional candidate to start out with.
The election is almost here, folks…less than 40 days to go!
Thanks RightKlik for the hard work!

The new poll is up and running. I’m a bit late posting but better late than never right?

This week I’ve nominated Francisco Canseco (TX-23) who is running against one of the 11 Texans who voted for Obamacare, Ciro Rodriguez.

.

.

It appears that Rep. Rodriguez thinks you should listen to him when he lies to you, you little insolent woman!

I don’t believe any taxpayer should be treated in such a way. Even if they don’t believe a word you say.

Let’s support someone who has the right message of Constitutionally limited government.

Francisco Canseco:

Our federal government has become a power and money grabbing behemoth which places itself above our individual liberties and freedom.

America’s true strength comes from our rugged individualism, entrepreneurial spirit, faith in God, and family unity.

You can friend Francisco on Facebook too!

I’ve cast my vote. Now it’s your turn!

Mr. Canseco:

B.J. Lawson wins this week’s “Ten Buck Fridays” poll.
B.J. Lawson is a young physician from North Carolina (NC-04) who was running against an entrenched liberal incumbent back in 2008, back before it was so cool to do so. Dr. Lawson has returned in 2010, riding the red wave that promises to sweep away liberals all over the country.
Lawson has been endorsed by the U.S. Senate’s most courageously stubborn defender of the Constitution, Tom Coburn (R-OK).

Senator Tom Coburn, the leading Medical Doctor in the U.S. Senate endorsed B.J. Lawson today.

“Our health care system is broken, and has only been made worse by this administration’s actions. Americans face skyrocketing medical costs with declining quality and availability due to oppressive big government policies.
Reversing these trends demands leadership that will return health care to patients and physicians, and get government and insurance bureaucracies out of our exam rooms.

I’m proud to endorse Dr. William (B.J.) Lawson in his campaign for Congress in North Carolina’s 4th District. As physicians, we have sworn to uphold the Hippocratic Oath — putting patients first, and above all else, doing no harm. As public servants, we swear to uphold the United States Constitution and protect the freedoms of the American people. Dr. Lawson will stand with me in the United States Congress in support of these sacred principles.

I hope that conservative bloggers across the country will join me in promoting and supporting B.J. Lawson for Congress. If you can, please send a few dollars his way…

From Right Klik:

Ten Buck Fridays is proud to announce that Stephen Broden is the winner of this week’s TBF poll. Broden demonstrates a profound understanding of the compelling issues that are at stake in the upcoming election.

Pastor Broden in 2009:

I’ve just made my donation to Stephen Broden’s campaign for Congress. Please join with me and the over 80 TBF blogs and patriots in support of conservative candidates who will fight for us in the halls of Congress.

Mr. Broden’s donation page is here.

Please make a note of Ten Buck Fridays somewhere on the donation form.

The new TBF poll is up in the sidebar. I would encourage everyone to research and vote for their favorite candidate. I’ve already cast my vote for Stephen Broden who, as I pointed out in the previous post is running against Eddie Bernice Johnson in TX 30. Stephen Broden is running on a platform of strong Constitutional principles and understands where Obama and the Progressives/ Liberals in Congress would like to take the country.

Right Klik has posted a list of all of the candidates with corresponding links and info for your enjoyment and edification. Please choose your favorites and make donations to these worthy Conservatives.

Here is a portion of a campaign speech from Pastor Broden on our duty to the Republic as citizens.

I must say, I really like this guy.

The TBF poll in a nutshell: This is a poll designed to promote rising conservative stars. At the end of the week, the winner will be promoted by a network of over 80 conservative blogs and will receive a flurry of contributions from patriots across the country.
*To ensure that your vote is counted, vote before you view results.
We had another nail biter this week with our TBF poll, and Ilario Pantano finished in first place. About fifteen minutes before the poll closed, Pantano and and Sean Bielat were tied! Coincidentally, both of the top two TBF candidates were endorsed by Michelle Malkin this week, as was Renee Ellmers (last week’s TBF winner).
Why should we care about races from North Carolina to Massachusetts to Oregon? Because every Congressman in every corner of the country has an impact on your life. So please support strong conservative candidates wherever they’re from. Don’t forget the fact that the National GOP establishment is primarily interested in perpetuating the National GOP establishment. And deep-pocketed industrial entities like Big Pharma and Walmart are often more invested in statism and crony capitalism than liberty and free-enterprise.
Economic and personal freedom will be available in the future only if we are prepared to make the necessary financial investments in leaders who will stand for our Constitutional rights and freedoms. If good candidates can’t get the money they need to run their campaigns from us (the grassroots), they’ll be forced to rely on special interest groups for their support. And then we’ll only have ourselves to blame for a country increasingly overrun by corruptocrats.
The bottom line is this. We can’t save our country with clicks and tweets. We have to give up our money. This week, please send some cash to our TBF winner, Ilario Pantano (or to some other conservative who understands the value of freedom).
Want to know why Ilario Pantano deserves your support? Michelle Malkin provides a good thumbnail sketch:

Longtime readers of this blog and Hot Air know the extraordinary story of Ilario Pantano’s heroism. He’s the Marine sniper-turned-Wall Street trader who rejoined the military after 9/11, faced the death penalty for killing two Iraqi insurgents in the heat of battle in a terrorist-infested town near Baghdad, fought fiercely and successfully to clear his name, wrote the book Warlord chronicling his experiences, and defended other defenders who volunteer to put themselves in harm’s way for their countrymen.

Pantano is continuing his journey of public service in the political square. He’s running against Democrat incumbent Rep. Mike McIntyre in North Carolina’s 7th district. UNC Wilmington prof andTownhall columnist Mike Adams has a nice profile of Pantano here.

Pantano’s website is here: He’s on a mission to protect the homeland, preserve conservative values, and increase fiscal accountability. Please lend your support to a warrior who put his life on the line for America.

*Here’s Ilario Pantano’s donation page.
