#whereisGUY ? ohhh he’s #byebyeGUY
Yes, I will admit it. I am quite gleeful about this. I totally did not care for that Guy as a candidate and every time he runs for something he acts the same way. Going back to that website from 2008 just proved it.
Do I think he will run for office again? Actually I kind of think he will. And he still won’t be my Guy. And I’m allowed to have that opinion about any politician.
There was one Republican whom I actually think is a really good guy and he didn’t survive the midterms, sadly. That is State Representative Chris Quinn. He was defeated by Radnor Commissioners, Lisa Borowski. Ironically Lisa has prevailed where former Radnor Commissioner and current Delaware County Council member Elaine Paul Schaefer failed in 2016 I believe it was. However, I am not a member of Lisa‘s fan club, because having watched her during her tenure with Radnor Township I see more often than not someone out for themselves not out for their plurality. However, she now has a chance and an opportunity to prove all of her critics wrong.
And now we sit and wait for the rest of the races to come in and for the election to be certified. I am going to say honestly that I think a friend of mine summed up the Republican everything quite well to me today.
This friend said:
No red wave! Looks like a red drip.
If Trump doesn’t get the “f…” out of politics we will see the death of GOP in next 10 years. Will go the way of the Whigs.
I think that’s correct sadly. and why do I say sadly? Because historically as a nation we are a democracy based on a two party system. Both major parties have issues, but the Republican Party is seriously flawed and insanely dysfunctional. And we saw that once again this election season by the candidates the GOP chose as worthy to back.
It used to be that they just fielded better candidates. There were at least candidates who would make you give a look at them before you decided one way or the other. Not this time.
But I’m not going to NOT say that I think the all of the candidates on the Democrat side were perfect. I do not think that and never did. I honestly feel this was the lesser of two evils election in a lot of cases. And obviously enough Republicans felt the way I did, since the results prove enough of them voted for Democrats.
This country needs to retire Trump even if he doesn’t want to retire. He was not and never will be the second coming of Christ. He’s like an old fashioned tent revival grifter. He’s also a walking talking malignant narcissist. Do you think he cares about anyone even the Republican party? He never has. This isn’t about America this is about his personal glory.
I heard from just as many Republicans as Democrats this election season who said they were fed up with the Republican party. In the case of the Chester County Republican Committee, their leadership needs to actually demonstrate they’re trying to improve the party for the better. What I saw this election season was them looking starstruck by Dr. Oz which was really something they should’ve been embarrassed about. And State Republicans? Just wow.
Chester County Democrats and State Democrats also need to wake up a little bit. I’m not letting them off the hook either. They also need to field some better candidates. And they need to make our elected officials more accessible. And maybe it’s a national Democrat party decision, but (for example) people don’t feel like Congresswoman Chrissy Houlahan is accessible to her constituents. I mean sure she’s accessible to the big check writing variety, but not everybody else.
And to all of the hyper “vigilant” groups and Stepford Wives for Totalitarianism groups? I don’t need your approval, I don’t seek your approval, I don’t even want to know you. Yet you are obsessed with me. It’s damn strange, truthfully. And I love the comment below “politics don’t supersede human decency.” I mean where do you get your material, and are you basing the definition of “decency” on your own behavior? If so, how do you figure? All I see are an artificial bunch of bitches who constantly project. And all you all do on your own is bully every single person who does not agree with you. I would say look in the mirror but bless your hearts, it might crack.
It’s really nice that this terrible election season is over. But we all have a lot of work to do still.
But for now enjoy at least a temporary break in the constant political yammering. And definitely enjoy that attack ads have come to an end for another political season.
