Democratic Civil War In South Carolina (A DONKEY BRAWL IS ON )

We’ve written a lot about the civil war going on within the “Republican” Party … invariably railing against establishment GOP candidates and supporting pro-freedom, pro-free market candidates.

Do we really care who wins the larger battle for the heart and soul of the party, though? No … the GOP is dead to us. And has been for some time. So while we’re happy to cast votes for the handful of Republicans who actually support the party’s “lower taxes, less government” mantra, we really don’t care what happens to the party itself.

The sooner it goes down, the better …

Anyway … while much of our attention has been focused on GOP infighting it turns out Democrats have a battle going on within their party. In fact my home state of South Carolina features a battle between a Democrat aggressively pushing the party’s core ideals and one viewed as more “GOP-friendly.”

Earlier this week, the S.C. Democratic Party’s executive committee unanimously endorsed one of these candidates … the ostensibly “GOP-friendly” one.

“Unlike Lindsey Graham, Brad Hutto will always put South Carolina first,” SCDP chairman Jaime Harrison said in a statement announcing the endorsement. “Lindsey Graham is more worried about world affairs and national television shows than he is the folks back home. Brad Hutto will make sure South Carolina gets its fair share in education funding and see that our rural infrastructure is strengthened – that’s the kind of leader we need in the Senate representing South Carolina.”

This may help keep Lindsey under 50% next Tuesday, since he would love crossover votes to protect and preserve them in these intentional open primaries.

In a larger sense, this is old news indeed.

Of course, many rank-and-file blue collar, working class, white, Catholic and Protestant Democrats are still, despite their incredible stupidity (Please make that "ignorance"), fine Americans.

Eventually they just might be expected to wake TF up and vote against the Communist SOBs that direct the policy of their party. Of course, there is the real and present danger that by the time enough of the above-mentioned wake TF up to make a difference, our Republic will look and smell like Bolivia.
