A critical choice will be made tomorrow by many voters in this once-great state; some voters, in fact, have already made their choice. Regardless of which county, township, or municipality you live in, every voter in the State of Michigan will have the opportunity to vote in the Gubernatorial Primary Election. This is a big deal. Michigan has suffered for the past seven and a half years under executive leadership that is most charitably described as incompetent; whom we elect this time will either guide us out of the hole we're in, or dig us deeper into it.
The general consensus, on these pages as well as statewide, is that a republican governor will serve Michigan better than a Democrat. Given that the epic failures of Governor "protobama" Granholm have been on national display, this is not surprising. However, there has been considerable disagreement as to precisely which republican candidate would be the best choice. Personally, I took my time making up my mind, not settling on a choice until about two weeks ago. For the record, the polling didn't drive my decisions . . . I actually did my own research. What follows "below the fold" are strictly my personal opinions and conclusions based on that research.
