I’m from the 1st district and was very sad to see David Davis go. I got to hear him speak shortly before the election and was very impressed by him. I think that you are exactly right about our primaries being open causing trouble. Is that something that can be changed? If so, how?
Yes, Davis was a great loss. Last I heard, he was going to seek a rematch against Roe (which would be their third faceoff). Roe’s entire reason for going to Congress was to “be nice to the Democrats” (which I’m sure you must’ve heard) because that “mean” Davis wasn’t kissing their liberal butts. Gee whiz, Phil, why don’t you just run as one, that way you’re being honest about your intentions ?
I’m not sure what process could be done about officially closing the primaries, I don’t know whether that could simply be unilaterally done by our party (which it should). Because frankly, if this is the kind of chicanery we’re going to continue to see, we might as well go to guerilla warfare and similarly run our people as Democrats and have them vote GOP at organizational sessions. Oh, what, we can’t do that ? Nope. Because the Democrat party will REMOVE a candidate from the ballot they suspect as being GOP-supported. We should’ve done that with Roe, when it was obvious his victory was due to Democrats, but the state party refused. That’s the kind of problems we face. They get away with murder and we just sit back like amiable dunces taking their abuse and say, “Thank you, sir. May I have another ?” They win because they have no sense of morality, honor, decency, you name it, anything to win, even if it means selling their souls.
As for Traitor Williams, he may savor his victory now, but when the real judgment day comes for him, I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes explaining how he sold his soul, lied, and betrayed his friends, colleagues and party for power. Spiritually, he has a very dead look about him.
