Oklahoma Is A Great State
Federal Election Results
Post elections reveal that Oklahoma is truly a conservative state. Every county in Oklahoma overwhelmingly voted for the Republican ticket for President of the USA – John McCain and Sarah Palin. I am so proud to be an Oklahoman. Oklahoma sends all the incumbents (Senator Jim Inhofe(R), Representatives: Tom Cole(R), John Sullivan(R), Frank Lucas(R), Dan Boren(D), and Mary Fallin(R)) back to the U.S. Congress, none of those votes closer than 10 percent. Eastern Oklahoma (where political corruption is the game) needs a clean up; perhaps in future elections, Dan Boren will be removed, however, Boren is a much better choice than 90% of other Democrat Representatives in the US House. He does lean more to the center in conservatism; other wise Oklahomans wouldn’t stand for it, especially on social issues.
Oklahoma State Election Results
On the state level, conservative Dana Murphy(R) upsets the very liberal, openly gay Jim Roth(D) in that contentious short-term Corporation Commissioner race. The numbers aren’t in yet, but Jim Roth outspent Murphy 2 to 1. Yet Oklahomans made the best choice, not based on beautiful campaign signs and advertisement, but on character and better qualifications. Jeff Cloud won the full-term Corporation Commissioner vote. A historic event for Oklahoma, the Republicans captured the state Senate for the first time ever! Oklahomans also added 4 republican seats to the house.
I rejoice that Sally Kern was re-elected despite the fierce hateful campaigning by the gay activists and their Democrat candidate gay funded Ron Marlett. Rep. Kern overcame it all! I watched the last six months of intolerance and hate spewing out against Rep. Kern. I am very thankful that this kind woman retains her seat in the Oklahoma House to represent conservative values.
Oklahoma City: I was sad that we did not give our mayor and city council the needed raise. However, Oklahomans are also tired of more taxes, therefore the salaries being doubled for mayor and council must have seemed unnecessary especially in these difficult economic times.
Oklahoma is a great state!
