ran 2.6 miles
  • Arkansas was the twenty-fifth state to join the union on June 15, 1836, fifteen years after Missouri and one year before Michigan.
  • Population, as of 2009, is 2,889,450.
  • Senators are Blanche Lincoln (D) and Mark Pryor (D).
  • Representatives are Marion Berry (D), John Boozman (R), Mike Ross (D), and Vic Snyder (D).
  • Arkansas holds six electoral votes. Historically, the state has voted entirely Democratic until 1964. In 1968, Arkansas favored third-party candidate George Wallace. Since then, it has been Republican in six out of nine presidential elections, voting twice for fellow Arkansan Bill Clinton and once for Jimmy Carter.
According to Rasmussen Reports, today’s polls predict Arkansas, with two current Democratic senators, will be a solid GOP state by the time the ballots are counted after November 2. Indiana, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Wisconsin are Democratic states that share the same prediction. California, Illinois (Obama’s own state), Nevada, Washington, and West Virginia are toss-up states. There are only seven states, Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, New York, Oregon, Vermont and Connecticut, predicted to walk away with Democratic Senators.

It’s an exciting time to be a part of this countdown to the midterm elections. To be a part of this vote is absolutely epic. There has not been so much at stake in decades concerning our policies and our adherence to the Constitution of the United States of America. Barack Obama has somehow managed to completely deviate from the more traditional crises, which we usually vote presidents into or out of office for, and has decided to call what he thought was America’s bluff.

Because of Barack Obama this country has woken up from its decades-long complacent slumber. There have always been important issues but this man is detouring those important issues and creating a whole new set of problems, as though breaking some glass in your kitchen were easier to sweep up after taking off your shoes and socks to kick and scatter the glass in every corner.

If he and his counterparts are voted out of office, he and his ideas will go down in history as the man who made America remember and fully appreciate its history and its principles for the first time in a very long time. Voter turnout will speak for itself and the final result could be a great moment in American history or it could be “Change”, as described by President Barack Hussein Obama.

1,956.5 miles to go.
