Just to be clear.
A while back this site left the rah-rah part of the neighborhood.
Rightmi.com stopped being the default cheerleader for the Michigan GOP as a matter of principle. Particularly since the primary part of the MiGOP has all but abandoned its tenets and reason to exist. What exists now is a shell of pseudo conservatism, and a mockery of the platform under which the party pretends to exist. Arguably, we still prefer the Republicans who run on conservative platforms but the party mechanism makes it tougher to sort them out.
There is some seriously spoiled fruit in the party. Snyder is no ‘Republican,’ yet his ‘purchasing’ of, and carrying the flag as one, is enough to fool the soft stupid on both sides of the aisle. The machinery in place to keep Republicans in majority has corrupted the ability to recruit and retain true conservative leadership as well. Ronna Romney does her part to keep those crazy doctrinaire Republicans in check using party money and resources.
In fact, its one of the reasons I am changing my phone service to a different carrier. It allows me to block solicitations for the MiGOP, and these calls usually come from outside the state anyhow.
Having said all that, I still believe today’s loyalist Democrats are the bane of intellectual development. Even more so than the blind loyalist Republicans who still support bad apples no matter what.. Flint, Detroit, etc.. The inability to look at the results of generational liberal rule and deduce the higher incompetency rate is beyond mind blowing.
True story – Gardeners know that feeding the weeds only starves the flowers.
Yet total personal failure of one’s professional and financial development within the Democrat party has become a flame that the moths of envy can hardly ignore. Bernie Sander’s own road to political success is one which must emanate from the old Lithuanian superstition of “stepping in shit.”
Yes, please pardon the grotesque colloquialism.
Sanders’ history is one replete with unlearned failure, poor workmanship, and simply doing everything wrong. Yet he is a sitting United States Senator. Is he just lucky?
Hillary Clinton is a loud prevaricating nuisance, and a curse for anyone who knows or works for her. She is a liar and criminal as already proven going back only as far as the email server she hid in her basement, and likely a more devious scoundrel who has had so many very ‘unlucky friends’ over the last several decades.
And then there are the tax cheats
Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel called out Melissa Gilbert’s Congressional campaign for wrongly telling donors that they were entitled to a tax deduction based on their contribution. The confusion comes from a Facebook event for a campaign fundraiser.
“Given the fact that Melissa Gilbert doesn’t pay her taxes, it’s understandable that she has some issues understanding how tax deductions work,” stated McDaniel. “Gilbert is unprepared to represent local residents in Congress.”
The criticism of the Gilbert campaign for wrongly telling donors they can take a tax deduction is the latest in a string of missteps since announcing her Congressional run. Gilbert owes more than $470,000 in back taxes to the IRS and the State of California dating back to 2005. Last week, Gilbert was also widely criticized for using the Flint water crisis to raise money for her campaign.
The truth is truth.
Gilbert is an essential part of the liberal Democrat party. I wonder if that party in its current construct could even operate without imploding by offering any useful substance, honesty or proper perspective. She fits the role of failure, expresses stupidity unbecoming the office she seeks, owes the IRS, etc..
She is most certainly a ‘Shoo-in’ under the new rules of electoral superiority.
Folks, we have problems in both parties. Much of it stems from internal power and the desire to keep it. But it is very real and tangible.
Today’s Republicans; the ones who have crafted a path to majorities in our state and others, are opportunists and damned fine salesmen. While moderately representative of those voters who trust their product line, we usually find that the warranties of the Republican brand are seldom honored. But they talk a GREAT GAME!!
Todays Democrats apparently don’t even have to try. They reject God. They see failure as an accomplishment worth rewarding. Ignorance of history is a must. The politics of envy is a virtue, and not a sin. Up is down, and wrong makes right. Meritorious achievement cannot possibly help the individual or society as a whole.
And all is well with the world.
