NH: Earliest Voters Pick Obama

By Spencer Hsu
The Manchester Union-Leader reports that Barack Obama came up a big winner in first-in-the-nation voting in Dixville Notch and Hart's Location.

Obama defeated Republican John McCain by 15 to 6 in Dixville Notch, and by 17 to 10 in Hart's Location, with two votes for write-in candidate Ron Paul.

The first Dixville Notch voter, following tradition established in 1948, was picked ahead of the midnight voting. The last time the town backed a Democrat was in 1968 when it favored Hubert Humphrey over Richard Nixon.

Hey Spencer, reporting that a union leader stated they voted for Obama...is like reporting that a bear craps in the woods.

Two things stand out about this election. One, how low the "democratic" has fallen in morality, two, how the press shamelessly parrots the democrats' lines.
Case in point - One of America's core beliefs is the right to the secret ballot. The democrats totally support the unionists recent and current attempts to ELIMINATE the secret ballot, which would give them "Big Brother" power over their members, allowing intimidation, harassment, and recriminations. Have you heard ANY democrat or "news" reporter speak out against this blatant attempt to curtail freedom in America (or "Rev." Wright, Ayers, Rezko, "Redistributing the Wealth", etc.?) No, and you WON'T! The unions and the democrats are in bed together, along with their press groupies! They HATE freedom, they LOVE only the power to CONTROL. If you vote for Obama, you're voting AGAINST the secret ballot, AGAINST one more of our traditional American freedoms! One step closer to one-party Socialism!
