Helping Small Business is Smart Public Business - CNBnews.net

by 5th District Assembly Candidate Wil Levins Our elected representatives must be advocates for New Jersey’s small businesses if we are to put the unemployed members of our talented workforce back on the job.

Small businesses also create the majority of all new jobs. Being advocates for small business doesn’t mean handing out government goodies - it means removing a number of the bureaucratic obstacles that make owning and operating a business more difficult.

Obama’s Obituary May Be A Tad Premature | The Philly Post

The point? At any given time, especially in the world of 24/7 news coverage, a major gaffe can sink an otherwise strong candidate.

In addition to the billion-dollar war chest the President will have, the most important aspect that commentators and politicians are missing is that the popular vote—and by extension most polls—are meaningless.
