Someone Finally Said It....

Good editorial out of the The Daily Press today. This piece sums up what many people are saying on the race for Lieutenant Governor. Do we as a party continue on this hateful, ideological manner of operating or do we finally start electing people that want to govern everyone regardless of ideology. (Side Note: Notice how I said ideology and not party since we are apparently now eating our own when we call a pro-life, pro-gun, anti-gay marraige candidate "liberal"). Here is the most interesting portion of the editorial

Just watch. Should Bolling become the GOP nominee for lieutenant governor, he will run precisely the same empty-headed campaign against whoever becomes the Democratic Party nominee. Bolling didn't invent this stuff. A wing of the Republican Party has been running campaigns like this for years and winning. The only thing different this time is that they've turned their shrieks of "liberal, liberal, liberal" against their own. Connaughton has stuck to his guns and told audiences that the number and costs of unfunded state mandates have increased dramatically in the past five years and have resulted in a shift of the tax burden to property owners throughout the state. That should surprise no one, given the habit so many state politicians have of governing by slogan and kicking the difficult, meaningful choices down to local government.
Food for thought for everyone out there.

I'm sick of these people yelling at everyone who they have a disagreement with. I don't want to be the minority again. Vote for a better party - Vote Connaughton.
