What the establishment GOP

did was wrong when they tried to force their "chosen" candidate on us by circumventing the system. That being said, Scott Wagner is by no means a "commoner". He is known to throw his weight and cash around and has tried to "buy" judge seats in the past by heavily influencing campaigns with huge amounts of donations.


Here is Wagner's defense. Though, if you "donate" to enough judges I'm sure it benefits you in some way.

Though it is great that the GOP's slimy tactics were thwarted, it will be nice when the common man will be able to win elections without having to break the bank to do so. I'm hoping that we will see that day soon.

You get MORE violence, not less, as you move from the big league organizations to the smaller ones. The big ones get mellowed out - if only by visibility acting as a deterrent.

Think about Ron's last presidential nomination run, for instance. At the national convention it was reroute the busses and jimmy the procedures. It was at the caucus level that the political machine was breaking bones and sending in cops to clear the buildings.

Mitch is cut, Mitch is cut!!!!

I see Karl coming down from his skybox as we speak.

I didn't hear no bell DP, one more round!!!!

Disgust for both political parties is a brushfire that

won't be squelched any time soon.

this should cause SHEER PANIC in the hearts of the RINO / OGER establishment like "crush the Tea Party" Mitch. Not sure about this guys liberty record, but a "Tea Party" win as a write in - that was a pure and simple ass kicking right there!
