Caucus this Saturday

Hey, are you going to the caucus this Saturday at 1pm?

     You can vote twice in Washington for the presidential primary.  With your ballot, and at the caucus.

     I’m rooting for Huckabee, because, even though it looks like McCain will get the nomination, the more delegates Huckabee has, the more weight he can bring to the convention.  This could raise his chances for becoming McCain running mate.  Being a Vice President is better than nothing!

To find out more info and where to meet go to: http://www.wsrp.org/News/Read.aspx?ID=6885

You need to know your precint number (found on your voter’s registration card) and it would be helpful to know what legislative district you live in.

What is a caucus, where is the caucus, who can go, what happens at a caucus, who can go? 

McCain: He wants to bring the troops home in victory and with honor, is pro-life, and has a lot of experience.  But, he is pretty liberal.  There is a fair amount of evidence that he almost became John Kerry’s running mate last election.  Also, he almost crossed over to become a democrat… so, he is sort of on the fence.

Huckabee: He has the same view as McCain about wanting to bring the troops home, but in honor and victory (and being smart about it).  He was Arkansas Lieutenant Gov. for 6 years and Governor for 10 years.  Worked with a democratic congress and got a lot done, including tax cuts (after he had raised taxes to improve their roads, which the majority of the people voted yes to).  He is pro-homeschooling and has a solid Christian stand on issues.  He is an advocate for the FairTax.  He is very level headed and a very good speaker.  One thing I’ve heard is that you can’t pin point the thing you don’t like about him.  He is a very smooth talker.  I’ve heard he isn’t very good at foreign policy, and can be a little to compassionate when it comes to dealing with terrorists… but, I’d encourage you to research up on that.

  1. I hope to attend the caucus tomorrow. Many of my friends are planning to attend but they aren’t voting for the same person I am, so I want to go and give the other side of the story. (so to speak)

  4. Hi Betsy,

    Say, I was wondering where you got the info that McCain was leaning toward being a democrat . . . and do you know where you can read info about him besides his own presidential website?

    Thanks!

  5. I got my McCain info from Art Moore, a journalist who works for Worldnet Daily. I was discussing the presidential race with him earlier this year.

    Info on McCain:
    There is a book called “Meet the Next President” by Bill Sammon. I have a library copy if you are interested. It covers 4 of the democrat and republican presidential candidates and what you’d never hear about them. It’s very good and interesting.

    Google him. I’m sure you’ll get something. google “for McCain” or “against McCain” or something to that affect.
