Rob Wallace (OK-D) for US Congress said SE Oklahomans need to send someone to capital hill who knows how to go toe-to-toe, as he has the experience in dealing w/the worst people imaginable. Wallace said that NOBODY in Washington is going to intimidate him. He also said that the political system has been a system of hired voices, & further indicated that regular folks don’t have the bucks to hire K-street lobbyist to carry their voice.
Wallace said the system has become a set of members who only listens to hired voices. Therefore, the only way for people in SE Oklahoma to get heard, he added, was for them to send someone from this area who will stand up to the special interest.
The moderator’s question posed to Rob Wallace was:”Gridlock is clogging up Capital Hill & with the 2 major parities often polarized to the detriment of the nation as a whole, and as a freshman US Representative what can you do to try to break down the lock jam that often occurs on capital hill?”.
Robert (Rob) Wallace, a democrat & Former Assistant US Attorney General is running for the office of US congress (2nd congressional district Oklahoma). His opponent is Marywayne Mullin — a republican & local plumber. The seat they both seek was held by democrat Dan Boren who is retiring & have held that seat since 2005. US Congressional district 2 of Oklahoma is the only democrat district in the entire state. Therefore, its imperative that the democrats hold on to that district, as the republicans are trying to turn the entire state Red to impair political balance. The election will be November 6, 2012.
Russell Turner a GOP running for Oklahoma state house representative Dist. 86 says Gridlock in legislature is good & that by him being conservative that makes him right.
At political forum – the question to Oklahoma GOP state representative candidate Russell Turner: “How would you help in the gridlock so congress & legislature can get something done for a change?”.

Russell Turner is running for state representative for house district 86 in Oklahoma. The election is November 2012.
His opponent is William (Will) FourKiller (incumbent) who is a democrat & currently the state representative for house district 86 in Oklahoma. District 86 covers northeast Cherokee county, southern Delaware county and all of Adair county.
I predict that Fourkiller will win re-election since he appeared to be extremely popular & I detected hard boots on the ground in the area campaigning for Fourkiller, whereas I do not recall seeing any campaigning fgr Turner. Considering Turner’s responses at this forum, I would be personally relieved if my predictions came true.
The GOP – Barney Taylor, a Walmart employee seeking election to State senate maintains that folks going to Walmart w/tattoos & mohawks are not employable
At political forum – the question to Oklahoma GOP state senate candidate (also Walmart employee) Barney Taylor: “Do you think its possible to be pro-life & deprive people of healthcare”. Taylor responded that folks (coming in Muskogee Walmart where he works) covered in tattoos & green spiked mohawks, are unemployable; and regarding their need for healthcare, he added “Why should we have to pay for you”. This was videoed at the Armory center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on October 9, 2012 at a candidate political forum sponsored by Tahlequah chamber of commerce. After the political forum in Tahlequah Oklahoma I asked Barney Taylor about his remarks at this forum about folks in Walmart w/tattoos & mohawks not being employable. The context in which it was said led me to believe that Walmart did not hire job applicants w/tattoos & mohawk hairdos or that at least it was his firm view of such people. So I asked for more details. He still maintained that such individuals are unemployable. This interview was videoed at the Armory center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on October 9, 2012 after a political forum sponsored by Tahlequah chamber of commerce. Barney Taylor is running for Oklahoma state senate district 9, which covers Muskogee & Wagoner county. The election is November 2012. His opponent, Earl Garrison, a democrat is an incumbent. Garrison was not present at this forum. It was announced that Garrison could not be present due to prior engagement to attend a hall of fame induction of his friend. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCHwe0gSoVo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgSGF2e9qBU
Will FourKiller (D-OK) Fights against abolishing Oklahoma Affirmative Action Law
William (Will) FourKiller, democrat incumbent for re-election 2012 as state representative, supports Oklahoma “affirmative action law” & said that it needs to stay intact. There is a proposed eradication of affirmation action from Oklahoma law that will on voting ballot in the general election – November 2012. FourKiller says that he believes in the affirmative action law whole heatedly, and that as a minority himself, he feels that we need that opportunity to not be discriminated against in employment, contracts, etc.. He added that affirmative law is working as it was intended to work & that there was no reverse discrimination as certain others claimed it was. He did mentioned that proposed abolishing of affirmative action in Oklahoma, was a political move by a state house member who was seeking to be promoted to speaker of the house. It was not until later today, that I had learned that a T.W. Shannon was the 1 who presented this anti-affirmative action initiative.
FourKiller said that he was OSU to explain this affirmative action law that is threatened to be abolished by the republican held House of the Oklahoma state legislature. He said that he explained to the NAACP OSU chapter that the Affirmative Action question on the 2012 ballot also affects women that young women especially need to attention as it affects gender as well. The affirmation law on the ballot will be SQ (State Question) 759 & that if voters want to keep that law then VOTE NO.
His opponent, Russell Don Turner – a republican, was interviewed on Affirmative Action law repeal. Turner response was negative towards affirmative action law. Turner indicated the law was no longer needed & causes division.
FourKiller currently is a state representative for house district 86 in Oklahoma. District 86 covers northeast Cherokee county, southern Delaware county and all of Adair county.

Oklahoma Republican female voter reveals who she may vote for in Oklahoma’s 2nd US Congressional & Presidential election 2012. She’s leaning Dakota Woods & Markwayne Mullin for US congress; but since she had not seen all of the GOP candidates she said she could change her mind. But she did say that her liking for Mullin & Woods was because they seemed strong & forceful.
Voter says she prefers Rick Santorum for President, but since he’s unlikely to win GOP nomination, she said she’d probably vote for Mitt Romney. When asked about Newt, the voter strongly replied he was dirty, a big government progressive & lack morals & character. However, voter felt Mitt was not that conservative, but that she would chose him over Newt based on morals & character.
This interview was on January 31, 2012 in McAlester, OK at a GOP event held at Angel’s Diner.
I plan to do more video polling of Republican voters at forthcoming Oklahoma GOP events so as to get a feel for how GOP voters are leaning.
