    Has anyone had the -whatever-to tell Rebecca she is going to lose? Consideration. Honesty. Guts. Sympathy. & warn her to not mortgage the house? & hope to hit the Ron Paul jackpot. 35 million krugerands.

    Sorry to be a title nazi, but it sounded to me as if Sink-Burris actually won the Senate seat. Maybe you could change “Bid” to “Nomination”?

    I used to live in Indiana and was curious about her qualifications. Her “Who is Rebecca” page tells me next to nothing at all about her professional abilities, but does contain lots of glowing prose about how bright and smart her children are. A potential voter would know a lot about her kids and nothing about her; not a good sign.

  4. And In California .......... Lake

    I was curious about her qualifications. Her “Who is Chelene Nightingale” (faltering to a AIP primary loss on June 8th) page tells me next to nothing positive about her professional abilities …….. and I await the details of her civil trial ……….. and I live for the morning of June 9th!

    And the California Constitution Party? Does not exist, never had ……….

    Her qualifications are her ideas.

    Read The Constitution and The Bill of Rights.

    Qualifications for Senate….

    No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.

    She would uphold her oath, unlike her opponents.

    I find it extremely hard to understand how anyone can vote for any of the Dems. or Reps. who have spent their lives growing government and taking our freedom. These blood suckers will and are destroying our country. Wake up and vote the death of these two parties. They are far lefties, and leftie light! Vote those who will govern under the
    Constitution. Neither of these parties have shown the ability to do so.
