Thank you...

A huge thank you to House District 21 for giving the opportunity to serve them and all of Northern Indiana for another 2 year term. I am honored and thankful to be here to stand for working, middle class Hoosiers with common sense and strong family values. Thank you to every one of you who helped with yard signs, helped with other friends' campaigns and became a strong team. We won last night with 17,580 votes and my opponent had 424. Thank you to every one of you for making a difference.

Now, the work at hand is bringing jobs into Northern Indiana and pushing alternative energy legislation that works for us and brings jobs here. We have a great deal of work to do, but I am thankful you're standing with me as we move ahead. Thanks again.

PS....ALL Walorski yard signs need to come down. If you see one, please grab it! We'll be getting the large 4 x 8 signs out this week, but little ones need to be picked up where ever they are. Thanks again. See you soon.

Country First

With only a few days left before the most important election in our lifetime and rhetoric flying at rapid rates, I just wanted to take a quick second and observe something fairly interesting. No matter which poll you look at, it shows this nation extremely divided over the presidential race between McCain/Obama.

Interestingly enough, for all of the record millions of dollars raised and spent by Obama and the antics of the pathetic media, marching like soldiers to the beat of Obama's drum, still nearly HALF of this country isn't budging or moving Obama's way. The heart and soul of our country isn't marching to Obama's drum..we are hard working, middle class Americans who believe in God, Guns and Country and aren't impressed with the American Idol type of hype that has flooded the air. We're the ones who work hard for our money and don't take kindly to government "redistributing it" to others.

This year, as in the past two or three Presidential elections, about 10% of voters are deciding the fate of our nation. Most of our nation hasn't moved an inch. Some of the liberal factions have moved further left but this time the media is unashamedly with them. Some on the right have moved further right as well.

But for the majority of us, we're right here, we've always been here and we'll remain here... standing on the driving principles that founded this great nation and we won't be talked "down to" or talked "into" anything else.

We're proud, hard working Americans and this is OUR country. We're the ones that have the guts to keep fighting. Afterall 10% is a small battle when there's at least 49% of us!! Keep fighting, keep working and keep believing. Country First.
