As the Republicans have said, one party rule has gone on long enough… At least here in Delaware…This makes sense… If there are two parties and one is evil…. by comparison… the other appears good… That happened to the Republican Party in 2008 when it was run by the same person who is running it now….

Back then, giving any vote to evil, meant you were hamstringing good.

That is no longer the case… Those in the Democratic Party, due to there being no elected Republicans to suck up large donations, have themselves taken on that undesirable activity. We have Democrats just as bad as Republicans who were kicked out in 2008.

It seems like partisan means nothing anymore… Education is one example, Environment is another, curtailing the police is a third, and in Wilmington, improving the police is a fourth…

The big things are almost done. Gay marriage is firmly in place. FOIA is prevalent throughout our state government. Marijuana is almost legal.

Left to do are a registration process for our guns, higher taxes on the one percent and corporations, and re-engaging the pursuit of an offshore Windfarm miles off Bethany Beach, and especially the elimination of Common Core as a curriculum and the abolishment of the litany of stupidized standard tests.

These things have protractors and detractors in both parties. David Sokola is tied with Greg Lavelle as being the worst human catastrophe for the educational system in our state… One is a Democrat, the other Republican. Both should go.

We have a former office phone answerer running for State Treasurer who is a Democrat, versus an experienced hedge fund manager who is a Republican… In this case, voting for the Democrat is a disservice to this state.

We have a long-term Republican auditor who has done nothing… And one of the top minds in the state who will do much, if given the opportunity… This one needs to go Democratic.

In the 22nd representative district, Pike Creekish area, we have one of the best minds in the state, Steve Newton, running as neither a Republican or a Democrat.. but a Libertarian… This is one non-major party person that we need to get in; for both your sanity and mine…

In Sussex we have extreme conservatives who have split from the Republican party and are running on Ipod… If you are any bit of a Conservative at all, they REALLY need your vote to carry your ideas forward. From this far out, it looks like next year there will be zero conservative representation period (RINO’s don’t count), that is if Sussex Countians don’t leave the Republican Party in droves and vote for these Independents… These guys need to be voted in by Conservatives otherwise Conservatism in Delaware is DEAD.

I’ve been struggling to find a big picture to all of this and the best one I can find, is that if your candidate is a patsy for BIG MONEY, regardless of party, he needs to be replaced by the better candidate… that candidate who fears you and will listen to you, more than Jack Markell…

We can see it in education. Where the big money lines up the center, and instead of legislators being there to express your views and concerns, they act more like bureaucrats and figure how they can finagle things through a vote so you neither know or care what happens.

Big money which ruined Washington, is now ruining Delaware. Some incumbents are good. Bryan Townsend, John Kowalko, Ernie Lopez, Cathy Cloutier, come to mind. Some Democrats, some Republicans. All these fight to take on the issues that are endorsed by the Governor, because that is what their constituents want…

But other candidates have been bought. Greg Lavelle, Senate 4th, condemned your child to the Smarter Balanced Assessments for a guest appearance our governor got for him on Politico with Chuck Todd. Many in General Assembly (represented by both parties) are in cahoots with banks, insurance houses, and charter school organizations. All pursuing cash dollars and not your interests…

What I’m saying is that (and some Democrats will freak) that it does not matter who controls the House or Senate this term by party… What does matter is that you put in the best person you can… A person who wants to run to represent you, and not someone having his bills paid by someone so he can represent them…

How can you tell? There is one vote that gives it away… Those voting for the Smarter Balanced Assessment, a test that will hurt and destroy your child, care only about the money… Those voting against, again, represented by both parties, care deeply about family values and children in general…

YOU can check out the House vote here... and the Senate vote here… This litmus test, of who is bought and who is not, can help you make the right choice when you go into the booth and push some buttons to make little lights light up…

Time to lighten up all of Delaware by getting rid of the junk just taking up weight…. If you see a Y… it is safe to remove them, no matter what party they call home….

This election needs to be decided by a district to district vote. Not a statewide partisan one. Each citizen needs to do some ground work and learn about their two candidates and then vote their conscious… Forget about affiliation… Party loyality is just an arbitrary designation designed to establish clarity… Right now, clarity actually shows us that those who were bought out, need to be replaced by those who cannot be….

Democratic. Republican. Independent. Libertarian… This time parties don’t matter. Please look hard and vote for the best person because they will listen to you, and please ignore the bought-out governor and his masters.
