Editor's comment: In reading the article linked below one cannot help but wonder at how "tone deaf" the Republican Party is toward independent conservative voters known as Tea Party folks. There are several outstanding illustrations of this among which was the recent Missouri Primary election. The Alaska election, where absentee ballots will start to be counted next Tuesday is the most recent example of the GOP insisting on "top down" control of the Party, apparently at the risk of alienating Tea Party voters.
Most Tea Party leaders and grass roots people that we talk with have resolved to support the Republican candidate because of the obvious need to "launder" Congress and stop the Obama Administration, Pelosi and Reid from implementing the worst of their socialist legislation. However, the Republican Party is once again playing with fire if they don't get their way and seems bound and determined to ignore Tea Party folks and independent conservative voters. Please click on the link below and see if you don't agree with us that it is entirely unconstructive for the GOP to send aid to Alaska in order to pull what looks like another Al Franken election rip-off.
We very much dislike pointing out the lack of unity between Republican Party "regulars" and Tea Party folks but we feel we cannot ignore obvious mistakes that may lead to continuing control of Congress by the socialists. We see signs that the GOP is going down the same road that led to the 2008 election results. The Republican Party is slated to take both houses of Congress as things stand in the polls right now but they could screw it up and that, in our opinion, would be a tragedy beyond imagination.
