Frankly, if the Paul's are going to use the Republican Party name, then toss LBJ grenades into others camps, and then have Ron pull a punk-ass stunt like run Third Party as he has before in 1988, or worse, endorse Cynthia McCommie and Ralph Nader types like in 2008; then they both need to be defeated from holding Office.

Hmmm, Bill must've not forgotten about Ron Paul endorsing Cynthia McCommie and Ralph Nader in 2008. Yup. The loony old kook yammered at length to his Paulestinian-bots for a divided Republican gifted Obama win then, and I have no reason to suspect otherwise that Ron won't do it again in 2012.

"For thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness. And I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land. And I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the ravines, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them with good pasture, and on the mountain heights of Israel shall be their grazing land. There they shall lie down in good grazing land, and on rich pasture they shall feed on the mountains of Israel. I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I myself will make them lie down, declares the Lord GOD. I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, and the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them in justice.
And I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd. And I, the LORD, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them. I am the LORD; I have spoken."
Ezekiel 34:11-16, 23-24 (ESV)

Its time to take back our state, and regain control of our own efforts and skills.
Folks here have seen some of my commentary on the issue, and understand where I am on the issue. Quite a bit of effort has been made in the background on this issue so that it has the fighting chance it deserves. The planning and execution of this has included some of the organizers taking hardship on themselves to push for this all too appropriate measure for Michigan.
They took leaves of absence from paying jobs.
This is important enough for a number of folks who might otherwise have minor disagreement, to come together in this much needed effort. We will need your help on this as well.
So note his press release comes from only a single group involved in our effort to unshackle Michigan workers to their unions, and bring accountability back to workers' representation. From the Campaign for Liberty Tony Demott begins. (Note that Terry Bowman, a UAW worker is a point man in this)
Also note that there will be an effort to "out" Republicans who do not take advantage of this one opportunity to complete the process of healing the state of Michigan. The pressure will be on, and if your Michigan Representative or Senator does not support what OUGHT TO BE seen as a natural right, perhaps its time they go back to the private sector and work for ... SIEU.
We are not kidding.
Dear Michigan Patriots,
Over the past couple of weeks, we have been working to put Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville on record on Right to Work. Will he allow a vote?
We are not alone in this fight. In fact, we've worked closely with Terry Bowman, President and founder of Union Conservatives. I'm honored to introduce Terry and his group to you.

when did our sitting US senators forget what is of critical consequence to Michigan? At what point did the fat globules break loose and stop the flow of blood to the brains of Senators Levin and Stabenow? Do they understand, or even CARE about the business and manufacturing communities in Michigan who use electricity as a part of the creation of goods?
If you though it was bad already be prepared for "bad" multiplied by ___<--Insert large number here.
Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow had an opportunity to stand up for Michigan, and its economic interests, and the jobs of its residents. They had a chance in a vote held yesterday to say to the EPA, that CO2 is NOT a pollutant to be regulated by the agency, particularly in light of the climate-gate scandal that demonstrates the science was never truly settled. They had a chance to demonstrate they actually are paying attention to those developments showing the climate change "science" to be a fabrication of grant seeking opportunists willing to exchange their souls for a few coins.
Let me get your imaginations started on what MUST happen now that the regulatory beast of the federal government has been given new freshly sharpened teeth.
