More and more Republicans in Valley move over to dark side

More and more Republicans in Valley move over to dark side

I am aware that most poli- tical people elected or employed don’t see the dollars they spend the same way working Americans do. They tend to treat it like Monopoly money (play money).

The actions of the Mahoning County Board of Elections recently showcases this quite clearly. That they were given inaccurate (the kindest spin) information doesn’t excuse their failure to verify said information.

To state that this wasn’t a raise but a cost-of-living increase was another sign of how out of touch people who suck from the “Golden Trough” are. My $20 per month ($240 per year increase) was for cost of living. The $2,250 per year increase the person making that statement would have received was a raise.

I don’t know if the false figures given were a mistake or deliberate, but dishonesty or incompetence should both mean the board should have accepted the offer of resignation whether it was sincere or not.

Being a registered and often rabid Republican, I am quite disappointed in election board member Tracey Winbush who seems to feel taxpayers should support the Golden Trough and keep government employees sheltered from the declining economy at all cost.

I am beginning to doubt my own political choices as I see more and more Republicans going over to the dark side.

My main reason for supporting the Republicans is my 76-plus years (56 of which were living in the city) watching the Mahoning Valley being destroyed by the single-party rule of Democrats.

And that's why we have a do-nothing Congress. Eivo again, being pro-ideologue, anti-American.

George Washington says:
I CANNOT TELL A LIE

Obama says:
I CANNOT TELL THE TRUTH

"I promise 100% transparency in my administration."

"I promise NO NEW TAXES on a family making less than $250K a year."

"I will allow 5 days of public comment before I sign any bills."

"I will remove earmarks for PORK projects before I sign any bill."

"I will end Income Tax for seniors making less than $50K a year"

"I'll put the Health Care negotiations on C-SPAN so everyone can see who is at the table!"

"I'll have no lobbyists in my administration"

See evio, you are the first commenter, and you went on the offensive using DUMBOCRATS. Just because they have a different view than yours, you start with the name calling, unprovoked at that. That is all we have been hearing about from you lately, how people just attack you just because they don't agree with your views. Attack Reid or whomever, but you could have made your comment without insulting all Democrats. Trying to bait people, but I hope nobody responds at all.
