Tag: Senate Leader
He's the guy right?
THE guy... Who is now arguably one of the most powerful players in the state.
While Michigan enjoys a brief respite from its Democrat domination, we have the opportunity to 'fix' a number of things that are wrong, that have been created by the blown away mentality of the left, and their queen. We have the ONE CHANCE to enact legislation that will fundamentally change the way Michigan does business. Perhaps in ways that some would have liked to do before, but were considered 'third rail' because of the politics and thuggery in Lansing.
Allow me to borrow a little from our Governor elect's saying... we have to "Reinvent Michigan"

The time is at hand.
When those in the newly elected Michigan Senate decide who will be the leader, it must be someone who is willing to go beyond the status quo. Make no mistake of thinking the 'leadership' of the Republican party had this election in the bag without the support of the free market, liberty loving tea party types who did a great deal of the WORK to change Michigan and the rest of the nation.
Ignore our efforts at your peril.
An article in today's Capitol Confidential has a quote by prospect for Senate Majority leader, Randy Richardville:
"I have moved further to the right than I used to be"
Glad to know.
What does that mean Randy? And what about your follow up?
"I don't see unions as being evil. If you want to work in Michigan, I'm probably going to support you. Sometimes working with unions helps get them back to work. ... Some people on the far right want to throw anyone out because they work for a union organization. That's not me."
With all due respect. "Probably" won't cut it.

Sometimes it is real easy to look at the top dog, and think there it is. The Governor is the one who will affect what is happening in this state the most. Often we forget the path of least resistance might not serve us so well, if that which travels the path to the pen is unencumbered by reason or moral certitude.
Just don't forget we have gatekeepers.
Jack Hoogendyk offers his valuable experience as a lesson in politics. Pay CLOSE ATTENTION. A little Skinny on this at the end..
Below the fold we go..
