Closing Arguments- Who Will Fight FOR You Tennessee?

We’re less than 24 hours now from electing our next governor in the state of Tennessee. As we come to the end we wanted to take the opportunity today to make one final call for your vote and support if you have not already voted.

Carl TwoFeathers Whitaker is the third choice for Tennessee. He is the most stable choice of all the other Independents running having experience in budget management as a police officer, law enforcement, legal studies and as an activist through the years fighting against illegal immigration.

The key word there is “fighting.” Who do you feel will FIGHT for you Tennessee? Will it be a Republican candidate who has basically bought his way into Nashville and not having any challenge whatsoever to answer for his stance on issues. Someone who has shown disdain to signing a 10-4 pledge that basically says that if the federal government intrudes on Tennessee, then he as governor will fight to protect Tennessee’s 10th Amendment rights? Will he stand up against the onslaught of illegals coming into our state with TOUGH, common sense laws that punish businesses who hire them and either putting these illegals on a path to citizenship or deporting them back to where they came from if they refuse. Will he FIGHT for the middle class families, those who are struggling day to day to find a meal, a job, the way to pay the bills? (Can he even identify with such with his lifestyle?) Will he FIGHT for your rights as Tennessee citizens to prevent Obamacare from becoming reality on our landscape by again standing up for the rights of the STATE, not Washington? Or will he be a Republican puppet answering to the special interest groups that all parties answer to and make decisions based on payback for the millions in campaign contributions given to him by these special interest groups? The last Republican governor this state had followed a similar path to power and wound up in scandal after scandal. Are we headed for a repeat of that? Will Mr. Haslam truly be inpartial as governor in his decisions despite the fact that as his Republican counterparts even have stated that if elected 95% of his decisions would already be a conflict of interest because of his business ties? We’re not demeaning the business ties but when you mix big business and politics the mix is never good and conflicts of interest always ensue.

Haslam has swayed and swooned most already into believing he’s the answer for Tennessee’s high unemployment rate, a broken TENNCARE system and other issues. But in all his swaying and swooning he’s never been able to take one position and stick to it. Will he as governor be the same – sway and swoon with the wind at the cost of political expediency – or will he hold to the position that whatever is best for the PEOPLE of Tennessee that is what we’re going to do? The last candidate on the political landscape that swayed and swooned like him was the current President and we see what that’s gotten us these past two years. Tennessee think about that tommorow as you vote.

On the flip side of the ballot, the question becomes also will the Democrat in this race, Mike McWherter, fight for you? He too refused to sign the 10-4 pledge and as a Democrat he will be lock step and toe with whatever his leader, the current President Barrack Obama, will bid him do. As a Democrat, Mr. McWherter has offered NO solutions to the state’s high unemployment issue, and as his predecesor he will do NOTHING about stopping illegal immigration coming into this state. His biggest moment on the campaign trail it seems has been his statement “we need to think outside the box.” Wow, what brilliant deductions Mike for someone running on the strength of his dad’s name, not on his record. He has stated NOTHING about what he will do about illegal immigration. And while the Obama Justice Department and the other Democrats in Washington are FIGHTING AGAINST states like Arizona and others who are trying to do something about this, the question beggars that if Tennessee were to start FIGHTING against this issue in a similar way would he a Democrat go against the efforts in Washington? NO, he would not, but he would be a puppet of a different sort – a Barrack Obama parody and extension into this state. Tennessee, do we want that for the next four years? Do we want an extension of Barrack Obama in Nashville? Being that John McCain won Tennessee in 2008 by the largest margin he won any state (which were not many) by a 69-21 margin I’d say we’d be safe to answer that question NO!

Carl TwoFeathers Whitaker has fought for you in the past in the trenches to help those who cannot help themselves. He doesn’t claim to be a saint, but he has the HEART and the SOUL of a man who will put his own interests aside for YOU the people of Tennessee. As an Independent candidate he can look at both sides of the issues and make the best call for the PEOPLE.

No matter who is elected tommorow, the times ahead are going to be tough economically for both our nation and our state.  Tennessee, we need a Governor who will FIGHT FOR YOU, not against you! You need a governor who can identify with YOU, not live in a white castle where everything is handed to him on a silver platter or one who because his dad ran the state years ago feels he’s entitled to it either. That’s the choice tommorow. That’s what we face as we come to the end of a two-year effort to bring you our message as best we know how.

We’ve had our ups and downs in this campaign. Funds have been low to none for 99% of this race. As they say in sports sometimes though, we’ve left everything on the field and held nothing back. It’s decision time now and in the hands of the people we cherish and are proud to serve if elected.

We love the state of Tennessee. It’s why both Carl and Chris, the campaign’s adviser and manager, live here. It’s why Carl is running for governor – to protect the natural resources of our state but most importantly to proect the most PRECIOUS of all resources – YOU THE PEOPLE.

That’s our closing argument. We covet your vote tommorow and we thank you for your support.

On a personal note, we want to thank those who have helped our campaign these past two years no matter how great or small the contribution has been. NO matter what happens tommorow your sacrific of time and effort will never be forgotten and it will be cherished forever.

Thanks again for your vote, prayers and support. God bless.
See you at the polls tommorow, Tuesday, November 2, 2010

Two Days To Go; Still Time To Send A Message With Your Vote!

A real quick blog today but an important one as we come to within two days of the November 2, 2010 election to put the next governor in the state house in Nashville. Unless Bill Haslam is caught in a sordid scandal or as one Nashville columnist wrote last week “taken and scooped up by UFOS,” it is more than likely he is going to win this race. His money, name and political backing has been larger than life from the beginning. While we’re not conceding anything, we are realists and know that all the polls are showing him well up and a likely winner on Tuesday.

With that in mind, Carl visited Central High School last week and finished SECOND in the mock election there beating out Democrat Mike McWherter whose campaign is all but gone. McWherter is calling into radio shows here in East Tennessee at this point to get whatever stray Democrats are not hiding at the moment. Carl needs your vote to SEND A MESSAGE To Washington that Obama mania and all his cronies – like McWherter – are not wanted in Nashville!

If Carl can finish second or win this race Tuesday this will set a precedent for all independents in the future to see that it can be done. There has always been a uphill battle for independents in any race even in this year where the political climate has favored them. But if an independent, Native American, conservative and common sense approach type guy like Carl could do it – it would send a message that the PEOPLE are who matter, not politics.

Many have already voted. We know that. But if you haven’t, please keep Carl Two Feathers Whitaker in mind Tuesday when voting. We’re a long shot no question, but stranger things have happened in politics and 48 hours is a lifetime.

We will say one quick thing about Mr. Haslam the likely winner. His latest ad this weekend said “to know him is to trust him.” Ummm, when a politician tells you to trust them, I’d be putting both hands in my pocket and making sure nothing has been taken during the conversation. Men like Haslam who have not been challenged to explain the trail of unanswered questions about the price gouging incidents of 2008 here in Knoxville and why he flip flops on many issues just because it’s politically expedient may win elections but they soon lose the people. Another candidate in 2008 swooned and wowed the crowds too and people thought he was the nation’s next Messiah. Barrack Obama, remember him? Well Tennessee Bill Haslam has swooned and swayed and spoke and wowed you too. Let’s hope your choice for him as Governor don’t turn out as the nation’s has for Obama. (Just a thought)

See ya at the polls Tuesday, we need your vote to send a message!!
