Another good editorial in Historic City News

Keep up the good work, Michael Gold! Good use of one of my favorite phrases (tinpot Napoleon). Salud!

Bad week for over-reaching would-be Republican leaders
May 28, 2017 Editorials
Some of the precinct committeemen and women in the St Johns County Republican Party have drifted so far away from the party platform over the past 15-years, that it no longer resembles the party of Lincoln. We are supposed to be about the inherent ability of the people to be self-governed — not the election of unaccountable, self-serving tin pot Napoleons like we have today.

Why in the world would the St Johns County Republican Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Florida be endorsing candidates for office in municipal elections, and other non-partisan elections? That is not the purpose of the officially chartered organization of the Republican Party.

When I cautioned against this intrusion into non-partisan politics, and the tactics being used to manipulate the outcome of local elections through false, misleading and deceptive means, many of the current leadership looked at me like I had three heads. Now, as we see in the outcome of this recent case before the Florida Ethics Commission, where St Augustine nonpartisan Beach Mayor, Rich O’Brien, has had to pay a fine for claiming to be “The Republican Choice”, I may not have been as far off the mark as the hotheads wanted me to be.

People have told me that “the party moved away from us” when I’ve asked why I no longer hear their voice in decisions and actions by the local party.

That point-of-view won’t work for me. I’m not changing my party affiliation, or shrinking off to the Republican Retirement Home. And I sure as hell am not the guy for anyone to try to make “go along” if it means turning a blind eye to bullies, trying to feather their own nests, who have been Republicans for about a minute. You might as well ask me to declare every philosophical principle I’ve held my entire life to be a lie.

The Trivial Trolls of the St. John's ( REC ) will soon
Have to answer for their Crimes.
Perhaps they will rename their Dysfunctional Dung heap to the ( MEC) Mepublican Entitled Communists.
God Bless America!

This is a Vanilla Greed for Profit Evilism lament...

Michael Gold is upset that Pernicious Greed for Destruction Xtrevilism has hijacked his Mepublican Vanilla Greed for Profit Evilism party platform. A party that never stood for self governance to begin with but was always a self anointed elite compendium of tin pot gas bags that cared more about self serving profit than self governance.

Sleepily mesmerized, and so entrenched in the 'good old days', Mepublicans are only now waking up to the incremental increase in societal immorality that has thrust them into a well planned and executed program of 'Full Spectrum Dominance' effected by creating 'Perpetual Conflict In The Masses'.

Yes, alas, they have been sold out by a greater and more pernicious strain of evil.

Bullies beget bullies... philosophical principles can be a box... you do reap what you sow... deception is the strongest political force on the planet...
