When we were kids in school we were taught we had a government of, by, and for the people. Somewhere along the way we lost that. No longer are we a Representative Republic. Now the party picks the candidate not the people.
Like all communist regimes a revolution eventually takes place and the people take back their government.The "Central Committe" is trying to pick the next Public Service Commission members. Robert McCollum tried to post in a Montgomery GOP Facebook group and the post was denied. Guess who denied it?
None other than Greg Pool. Who is he? 'Totin' Odens Chief of Staff. Then a member of the legislature implied to Robert that he should stop campaigning because he was going to lose to Chip and should not take any campaign donations." I guess this representative didn't watch the returns on election night when 57% of the state voted against Chip Beeker.
Wait it gets better. Then the fake news yellow journalism better known as Yellow Hammer News announces that Will Ainsworth, of all people, endorsed Jeremy Oden and Chip Beeker. Like anybody cares.
On top of that McCollum is called the liberal environmentalist. Wait, what? Just last week he was the conservative. This is too good watching the people take their government back from the establishment.
I'm reminded of the old saying that we all know too well. Fool me once shame on. I don't even have to say the rest. I assure you the voters will not be fooled this time.
