It's a quick victory for McMahon ... who filed legal papers earlier this week, after the Conn. Secretary of the State issued an order empowering election officials to turn WWE-clothing wearers away from polls ... simply because his wife is running for U.S. Senate.

McMahon -- who owns the WWE -- released a statement saying, "I am pleased that Connecticut voters have had their freedom of expression to wear WWE merchandise and their right to vote restored."

Who has WWE clothes? I think that is the more important question to explore. Just going out on a limb, but I'm guessing the WWE set isn't the most faithful voters out there. But I'm glad they are now welcome to vote in Connecticut.

All this does is draws more attention to it. Now more people will probably wear the clothing where as before hardly anyone would have.

The Real Story    

Democrat Obama said Republican Abraham Lincoln Understood that self-reliance or Individual Liberties was at the core of American life BUT Obama said "Individual liberty is "served, not negated, by a Recognition of the common good" (Collectivism). The Common good of Collectivism as Obama stated a 'Collective Union' (which Opposes Republican Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan's Core Ideals of Individual liberties). It is Individual Liberty that lead to the Ideology of freedom ,for all....
The Democrats of Today seem to be engaged in the same Collectivism of before .From the Democrat Collectivism of Jim Crow laws , W. Wilson Progressive movement , Sharpton , Durbin , Nationalized Health, or Nationalized Economy (for the collective good), it is the Same democrat Ideal (more or less). (Note Ronald Reagon use to quote and Image himself after Republican Abraham Lincoln. Individual Liberties was at the core of Abraham Lincoln's switch to the GOP Party from the Wig Party and remains the attraction to the Republicans (DNC Collectivism VS GOP Liberty)).

I knew McMahon would win. Like I said before, he knows way too many people and his lawyers are the best money can buy. They had "No Chance in Hell!"
