I have always been a conservative. I have always voted republican. I do not like the liberal leftist side.
But a few years back the Pennsylvania republican party shoved Lynn Swann down our throats in some lame attempt to use his name and color as a viable candidate. No public appearances, no public debate, no nothing but here is WHO YOU WILL VOTE FOR! And Lynn Swann got his butt kicked.
I have never donated to the state republican party since.
Now the national party is dumping the republican party victor in Delaware. They will not support who the republican VOTERS WANT, they want to back who they want. And if they do not get their way...then they walk away.
Well you know something, Republicans can walk away too. They do not need my support, money, or vote.
Politics on both sides suck. They shove preselected picks and insiders, who are at odds with what the voters want.
I applaud the voters who dumped the "established" candidate thrown out there by the parties.
For years, people have said a two party system was a broken record. And I wholeheartedly look forward to the parties either changing to the will of the voters, or seeing them go down in flame.
For years, I was given the option of some Dem candidate, or Arlene Spector, who was for years a Dem in sheep's cloths.
The republican party is going to go through some changes, and some will be painful. If they do not take control of the senate, then so be it. To say that the only option we had in Delaware was a republican who said he will vote for Cap & Trade, is sickening.
Better to clean your own house, before you think you can change others. And I hope the voters continue to clean the republican ranks of RINO's. I'll take the one step back, to move two steps forward.
And in the meantime, the republican party will not get any support from me, .......the voter.
It's real simple. When the establishment says within hours that they will not back the person the voters put in by vote, what does that say to the voters of Delaware? They could of held back any comment, worked things out behind closed doors, or just supported in a limited capacity. But for them to come out and say "We will not support the republican voters in Delaware, by not supporting their candidate", I'm sure they will not be getting any support soon by some republicans. Me being one of them.
