In a move that I heard rumblings about them for some time now, but felt they had slightly more of a chance of existing than, say, The Nain Rouge, Dogman, The Little Blue Man or even Luke The Spook, The Detroit News reported today that a group calling themselves “Republicans and Independents for Whitmer” have finally made their existence known.
Yes, the name is exactly what is says, although the “republicans” in the aforementioned name aren’t even on the radar when it comes to promoting anything even remotely close to Conservative Values.
Calling them RINO’s would actually be a complement to them.
I’m a little pressed for time today and have to keep this short, but will share one quick quite from Sen. Shirkey and Rep. Chatfield on these knuckleheads before I have to run.
“Anyone claiming to be a ‘Republican for Whitmer’ is someone opposed to lower taxes, limited government and fiscal responsibility.”
I will be touching on that glaringly obvious problem within the Michigan GOP and expanding on this post a little later.
Between bad proposals, and the best intentions the timing couldn't be worse.
Lobbyists know that our legislators have blind spots.
Its not that all legislators are blind, ignorant, foolish, or even downright incompetent. Just most of them falling into one or more of those categories.
Unfortunately, some have gone back to the trough of stupid ideas a little too often. Enough in fact, that they don’t even see the real reasons they are suddenly inundated with far reaching demands for change emanating from the pits of hell masquerading as fixes that are long overdue.
The convention of states (COS), and National Popular Vote (NPV) are two such changes that if successful, could threaten our very Republic. The COS, in a way that opens the doors to quite literally writing out the very protections enshrined in our constitution. The NPV, as a means to enable mob rule, and permanently entrench those who can then control media and other information sources.
As we go through the daily motions of our lives during this September 11th, hopefully some of you will either take the time to attend one of the 9/11 remembrances around Michigan or to reflect upon what we have lost as a republic ever since that fateful Monday morning 17 years ago.
Multiple news outlets have reported that the Michigan Supreme Court in a 4-3 decision upheld the democratic party “independent/grassroots” Voters Not Politicians petition initiative to create a non-partisan commission to redraw every voting district in Michigan.
In writing for the majority Justices Viviano, McCormack, Bernstein & Clement said;
“Here, that approach leads us to conclude that a voter-initiated amendment under Const 1963, art 12, § 2 is permissible if it does not significantly alter or abolish the form or structure of our government, making it tantamount to creating a new constitution.”
Yeah that’s sounds great on paper, but exactly how did they intend on accomplishing this nigh impossible feat?
