I'm voting for Tom Corbett
#1
We are quickly approaching a crossroad in this state, one that could very well see us turn into a state that looks a lot like our neighbors to the east and north.

This November election could either make or break this state. The governor's race now shows Tom Wolf with a 20+ point lead over Tom Corbett The Attorney General's office is already in the hands of a Bloomberg backed anti-gun liberal and now there are rumors the Senate could flip to a Democrat majority.

While many fault Governor Tom Corbett for 'inaction' we know for a fact much of the gridlock in Harrisburg is the fault of a few 'power brokers' and some special interest groups.

Should this state flip Democrat everywhere except the house we are going to be in deep trouble.

Tom Wolf has already stated he backs an assault weapon ban, magazine limits and universal background checks. AG Kane would just as well like to see all your guns taken away and a Philadelphia lead Senate Majority would be the icing on the cake.

Word has also come out that the Republican party is throwing Corbett under the bus for doing his job and cutting their 'slush fund'

We can not stress this enough, you need to get the word out to every possible voter you can and make them understand this is NOT some do-nothing mid-term election. If you think your rights in Pennsylvania are safe you are sadly mistaken. If the Democrats can stall a non-nonsense, common sense bill like HB2011 imagine what they can do with a majority.

We implore you to get the word out. Tom Corbett might not be the best governor we have ever had but he sure beats the possibilities of this state turning into NY or NJ.

Also please take the time to read this piece by York county Senator Scott Wagner.

And last but not least spread the word!

Remains to be seen. Incrementalism. One step closer . . . .

Their side has already shown how patient they are.

Yep, certainly looks like a pattern to me.

Trouble is that he does not appear as a ‘super liberal douchebag’ to the general voting population. It’s almost as Corbett gave up the fight even before the bell for round one. He had a good enough story to tell but did not even try which leads me to think he was done with the job and had not real interest to continuing.

^that! I think he took the job just to say he is/was the governor. Now he doesn't want the responsibility.

I'm too lazy to type up a new post, but here is a cut and paste from pafoa of my thoughts which address your question in a round about way.



Why I am supporting Corbett and hope supporters of the 2nd do everything they can to get him re elected.


"I will be putting money and time into Corbetts campaign, but Wolfe getting elected alone will not change this in my opinion. (In reference to someone else saying that if Corbett gets elected we will lose our 2nd Amendment rights) The general assembly still makes and changes the law. But part of my fear is a coat tail effect happening. I have heard in some places, and have read here in other threads where people are not going to vote on election day because they don't like Corbett. As a strong believer in the 2nd I see this as cutting off your nose to spite your face.

A governor does not make laws, but they can veto any law that crosses their desk. Corbett can (and I believe will) veto any anti legislation that were to cross his desk. Wolfe can (and I believe will) veto any pro gun legislation. That to me is a big loss for us if Wolfe gets elected. I like having that final failsafe in there.

As I said earlier, I am also worried about the coattail effect. I have spoken to Wolfe supporters and they are energized about their candidate. I have spoken to people who would normally vote for Corbett and they are not energized. Some have indicated that they are not voting this election. This could be disastrous for us and lead to what you fear in your post. There are plenty of general Assembly elections going on this fall. The general assembly is currently pro 2nd in its make up.

All 203 house seats are up for grabs! 25 of 50 Senate seats are up for grabs. If we lose the General Assembly we are fucked and this election has the potential for that type of disaster to occur. Between the excitement that wolf supportere have, and the apathy many Corbett supporters have, we could a see larger than normal democratic turnout, and lower than normal Republic turnout for a Governors election. Many people pull the lever and vote straight ticket. This is a recipe for disaster for pro 2nd citizens in Pa.

I posted this before and will again before the actual election. If you are a supporter of the 2nd staying home on election day should not be an option, but even that may not be enough.

Pa is a Keyhole State right now. Antis from Bloomberg on down know that if they can find the right key and turn it, they will be be able to open the door to continue their expansion of destroying the 2nd. And they have to be salivating right now. Kane as Attorney General, Corbett appearing to be in trouble, I honestly hope that every person on this site who has EVER complained about government intrusion, or is concerned about giving up major 2nd Amendment rights gets involve in some way during the upcoming election.

I don't think just voting will be enough to keep Corbett in. It's going to take money, word of mouth, door to door, phone calls, driving people to the polls etc.... Sitting on the sidelines for this one could be disastrous for the 2nd in Pa. I've talked to people who support Wolf, they are energized and excited. Unfortunately I've read on this site about people who are finding every reason under the sun not to vote for Corbett, or vote at all in this elections. Truly a case of any 2nd Amendment supporter cutting off their nose to spite their face imo.......



For the record..... there are 203 house seats up in November, and 25 of 50 Senate seats up. Opting out of the election cycle because you do not like Corbett can hurt many of the Pro 2nd candidates and our current standing in the General Assembly.

Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

This lifelong liberal lefty Democrat is voting for Corbett.

I'm not going to vote for a candidate who prides himself on opposing ownership of so-called "assault weapons."

Based on that, I'm assuming he'd also look to water down the preemption laws and everything else we depend upon to ensure our 2nd Amendment rights.

As committed as I am to other aspects of the "liberal" agenda, I'm more committed to my constitutional rights. That Corbett's opposition isn't is just a deal-breaker at this point.

My feeling is that my party has thrown the 2nd Amendment under the bus. When they stop doing that, I'll be right back. Until then...

Unfortunately, not enough Dems feel that way. They seem to want the social agenda more than they value liberty and constitutional rights. If they can elect a nanny state to give them everything they want, so much the better.

The GOP these days gives the appearance of deliberately fielding unwinnable tickets. It's amost as if they're just going through the motions . . . . I honestly have a hard time believing present GOP candidates are the BEST they can find.
