State primaries are also very important
I predicted the Chick-fil-A voters who stayed home on August primary election day, would vote in November. They did.
Some 129 million people voted in the presidential election, including nearly 50,000 from Blount County. Where were you chicken eaters when your vote meant something? Why did you have time to vote in November but not in August? Our state senator was determined by 11,327 voters and only 5,316 voters determined our 20th District State Representative.
Stop whining about Obama if you didn’t vote in the state primaries. That was your chance to elect candidates who would resist the federal government.
We’re stuck with Sen. Doug Overbey and Rep. Bob Ramsey, because so many of you ignore state and local politics. Both are career politicians, working their way up the ladder. Both were county commissioners before being state legislators. What’s next, federal office?
Overbey and Ramsey are so bad that liberal blogger Randy Neil told people to vote for them. He is so far to the left that he landed on the moon and is trying to rearrange and tax the moon rocks.
What can Bob Ramsey show for his time in state office? He sponsors bills for dentists. When a constituent has a problem, he goes to state attorneys. When has he ever researched anything on his own?
Every time Ramsey is asked a question he either checks with attorneys or says he will ask special interests what they want. Not one time has he ever said to me, I’ll check with my constituents and see what they want.
Oh but “we are fortunate” to have a dentist and an attorney “represent us.” We’d be fortunate if more people paid attention to state and local politics and remove these career politicians before they go to Washington, D.C., and do even worse things to us.
