  1. Indeed, primary elections are ( in most cases) a political party function. Why should I, an unaffiliated voter, pay for them through taxpayer funded elections? The parties should have the opportunity to select their candidates as they see fit, and pay for it too. The Clinton/ Shultz rigging of the democratic primary shows what a sham the whole thing is.

    We should never forget Donna Brazil puffing up and proclaiming “I’m a good Christian woman,” when confronted about passing questions to Clinton before her debate with the Burn. She later admitted it was true. If there is a Hell, it should have a special place reserved for anyone who tries to hide their lies behind Jesus’ skirt. May she burn forever; I intend to stop by to mock her and help stoke the fire.

  2. Many are calling for open primary elections, where any eligible voter can vote in either the D or the R primary.

  3. Thanks for sharing my link, and the links of other candidates. It is important for our Borough that people know they have a choice and know there are people willing to challenge the status quo.

  4. You are welcome; we try to provide as much pertinent information as we are able. An open and equitable society demands openness and transparency.
