Dems Hold Lead As Beaver County Elections Bureau Says Absentee Ballots Double That Of Last Midterms

The Beaver County Elections Office door was almost like a continuously revolving turnstile early Wednesday afternoon. Person after person approached the counter, provided ID, and requested an absentee ballot for the Nov. 6 election. That’s been the norm for the last two weeks, said office Director Dorene Mandity. But it’s definitely not the election office’s…

I am not a Democrat. I am not a Republican. I vote the candidate. But there is only one way to stop the lying demagogic madness in Washington that is sweeping across this country. Vote straight Democratic. Then, next time, vote as you normally would. I am not even going to look at the individual names. Just hit the straight Democratic ticket button.

IT IS THAT SERIOUS.

There is no Republican Party. That is gone. The Lying Demagogue In Chief has declared himself a “Nationalist.” It is unlikely that he even knows what that means. But he sure as hell is destroying the government to make it happen.

By my math, if the trend continues, Beaver County will be red in four years. That would be a nice feather in Jim Christiana’s cap, wouldn’t it? He’s going to ride that trend to increase his stock at the state and national party level. Now it makes more sense why he bullied his way into the chair of the Beaver county Republican Party, he wants to take credit for the trend to move up the ranks of the party.

Whether I vote a straight ticket Democratic this time or not, to stop what is happening to the Republican Party, there is the historic Beaver County Democratic straight ticket voting that candidates rely upon. They switch parties like underwear, just to take advantage of it. It is predictable. That will not go away, because the demographic will not change anytime soon. No, I don’t see a red BC, but I can’t argue with your JC comments. Go slow, though. JC is not as “powerful” as some would make it seem. He couldn’t even make a difference in the recent racist comments by the committee woman. Look for him as a local lawyer to use his new diploma. If he traded that for politics, it would be the most foolhardy thing he could do. He’s not stupid.

More Republicans!!! Nobody ever responds except with dislikes or past crap about people that are sometimes dead, but please tell me what we have seen from Jimmy Chrissy, Rip Van Marshall, farmer Vogel, Aaron Bernstine, Keith Rothfus, Pat Toomey, Danny Camp, Sandie Egley, Tony Guy, …. that has improved or benefited this county since the red wave ten years ago.

Don’t go off on Mike Veon or Joe Spanik or Tony Amadio or “Obammy” or Hillary and Bill, tell me, what have the GOP done for this county since they got control?

Make a list and be specific. Tangible achievements, no shit about protecting our Second Amendment rights and other nonsense.

HA! 21 dislikes , but NO talk about what these guys have done to benefit Beaver County. I guess there are just too many to note?
Or… does the truth sting a little bit when it stares you in the face?

The majority of the absentee ballots are people living on “G Money” , wonder if they will still vote in person also.
