Thanks for the clarification, Proud. I don't think the above comments were meant to be serious, though.

The reason its difficult to tell the difference is that there is no difference. These guys are just as eager to raise your property taxes as the bunch in the other office. ...or to assign another fee to tax a right. ...or to wipe out another liberty. DemocRATs or RepubliCONs, two sides of the same pill you will choke on if you swallow it.

What exactly is a "grant" opening????

the reason for the earlier comments is because it was reported as the Republican Headquarters in the newspaper and on the early online report.

Oh brother, some people have nothing else to do but complain. Let's concentrate on more important matters than what was nothing more than a mistake.

Maxine, isn't your post a complaint about complainers?? Pot, kettle, black.

LEE - 1, MAXINE - 0. ha ha

I wonder what voting would be like if candidates weren't allowed to display or discuss the party they belong to? Force the people to vote based on the MAN (so to speak) and his 'promise' instead of the "party".

I ask because my father is a staunch Democrat. Always has been .. always will be. He votes straight Democratic ticket. I wonder if he could tell the Dems from the Repubs.

Emmes, your point is well taken, some ppl. vote for a person because they are of a particular party. But a politician is just going to tell you what you want to hear, so that wouldn't work either.

Good comments Emmes and Lee. It's too bad that there isn't a way to remove the politicians, without an election, if/when they prove through their actions that they lied during their campaign. I know it's naive to think that a lot of them are telling us anything other than what they think we want to hear, but it still bothers me when they do it.

We have some good local politicians who are there because they want to help the local citizens, but there are a lot, mostly on the State and Federal level, who're out there to help only themselves and their cronies. I've made a decision to not vote for anybody who is only running negative ad's. If you have so little good to say about yourself that you have to resort to tearing down the other person, then you're probably not qualified to hold office.
