Truly a loss to the GOP if Betsy DeVos remains committed to her recent effort of removing Dave Agema from the position of Republican National Committeeman.
There was a reason he won the position in the first place; as someone who would hold TRUE to conservative Republican principles, and strengthen them in the national platform. While the establishment Republicans are decrying Democrats as "bad," Committeeman Agema was rebuilding the foundation so Republicans could say why. Real fiscal restraint, real solutions aimed at preserving families and traditions that have made this country great.
And the feeble sensibilities of an offended malcontent within the party continuously stirs up sympathy for the other side's (progressive Dems for those of you who remain unsure) point of view?
"Hey look at me! I am a Republican and I don't like your stand on what I like to do, so you better tolerate my perverse lifestyle or I will forever more divide the party until I get what I want! You can call it a big tent if you want."And like the 'Tasmanian Devil' of the cartoon world, shredding the bonds of good conservatives, and instilling doubt upon the conscience of a party that once at least as a promise, stood for decency and honor.
When moral restraint is removed in one way, it certainly follows that the caps are off in others too.
A sin is a sin is a sin, right?

OK, yeah.. a little disappointed in the statements made by our governor the other day. In my view, his particular expression of democrat dreams only gives those failed ideas new life. thus we call out RINO etc..
There is no question he needs to know when we are in total disagreement.
But more importantly, our legislators need to know. I have already been in contact here, and expect to continue putting pressure on them. this isn't to say I will be abusing them with incessant contacts, but rather I will continue to provide a consistent message that they do not need to go along with the governor's liberal agenda to get along. Frankly, Snyder has made it clear he wants to expand crony capitalism, and if the Republicans in the house and senate wish to be viewed in that way then he will have willing allies.
So we don't have all three branches like we thought Nov 5. The Michigan legislature has a great number of our friends and colleagues however, who have been along side us in our quest to take back Michigan from the failure that was liberal democrat control. I guess we will have to live with that. But we have to embolden our stalwarts, so they know we have their back.
First hand, I have begun to experience what it means to be accountable to constituents, and especially those who disagree with my stands..
