All I can say about this August in CD-6 is, Go Jack!
By JGillman, Section News
In a time when conservatism has regained the eye and can be found more in the heart of America, those who refuse to stand for anything, seem to expend more effort standing AGAINST those who would presumably be their allies.
Some Republicans have consistently, even in the face of gains made by "tea party" conservatives in their party, shunned those gains, and pegged the new conservatism as "extreme." Rather than embrace the ideas of responsibility and restraint with regard to government, they have instead attempted to scuttle reform efforts by those who were in fact elected under a conservative flag. Such things as spending within means, and abiding by the constitution, to centrists, is tantamount to guaranteeing they would be unelected in following cycles.
So instead of promoting any message that is constitutionally legitimate, or perhaps even (dare we suggest) "righteous," it is far easier to put finger to the wind, and see where society would accept deviation from current conditions and then assume relatively safe positions. Far easier to be "politically correct," slight those who share your party banner, and continue a path toward complete socialism for the sake of personal power.
And they call it "moderation," being reasonable, more "centrist."
Including some notable Michiganders and others below the fold.
