Tag: Destruction Of The Party
By JGillman, Section News
The corruption of the Michigan GOP by Saul Anuzis, Bobby Schostak, Sharon Wise, and Bill Runco demonstrate there is still so much to do by Michigan Republicans.
How can we stand as a party with true principles, if the pursuit of power overrides common sense and appropriate management of our affairs? How can the desire for a single candidate be allowed to flavor the rules after the fact, to advance that candidate? How can a party that continually keeps trying to call itself "Big Tent" work so diligently to drive away the conservatives, grass roots, and TRUE Republicans, expect to survive such an important time in the history of this country?
Maybe its because those at the top don't want survival.
That is one of the conclusions one must arrive at if the facts are examined with a critical eye. An unacceptable acknowledgement of blame for a presumed misunderstanding of the rules is all the proof the MiGOP is willing to offer to a now despondent base that everything will be OK if we all just coalesce around the chair, and spurn the idea that crooked dealings have been happening. "If we pull together, then we can beat Obama in Michigan!", being the theme.
The Ends justify the means. Just ignore the fact we become that which we fight in the process; Dirty dealing, backroom brokering, power seeking corruptocrats who could really care less about the rule of law or what is decent and just.
We become typical Michigan Leftist Democrats.
