What Goes Around Comes Around

by lewwaters

Karma, in its simplest definition “is getting back whatever it was you dished out,” also referred to as reaping what you sow, getting your just rewards, got what’s coming to you, paybacks and more. I think y’all get the picture.

Karma can also be quite sweet for those who have been targets of vitriolic smears over the years, even though just a bystander witnessing the sweet karmic ‘just rewards’ getting dished out on those so deserving of receiving a taste of what they gave out before.

Such is the case going on this primary election in regards to some fringe, far right PCO’s from the Clark County Republican party hoping to retain their PCO position or desiring to oust others and assist in returning fringe control over the county level party.

Moving Forward, Ignoring the Hatred

Clark County has become a microcosm of the bitter political divide seen throughout America as fringe elements on both sides of the aisle duke it out for control and more power in their hands to rule over us.

But that isn’t what our country was founded to be. I was taught that we were to be a shining example of diverse views meeting in the middle to hammer out disagreements and agree on solutions that would best benefit all, not just one side or the other.

Although I initially opposed it, we saw an effort at undoing such control by passing a home rule charter that stripped one such demagogue, David Madore, of the dictatorial powers he was exercising over the County once he was elected to the County Commission.

Purity, Exclusion and Eternal Victims

by lewwaters

Elephant 3This blog has long warned of the infiltration and planned takeover of the Republican Party by fringe right leaning Libertarian types normally associated with past campaigns of three time failed presidential candidate, Ron Paul.

I have been scoffed at, ridiculed, verbally assaulted and targeted by these same people in comments on this blog and other forums for pointing out the obvious intent of their deciding that they must take over the party for some reason.

Two years ago I exposed an effort by one of their number to “stack PCO positions” with those favorable to their point of view that led to me completely severing any supportive relationship that might have existed between me and the local GOP.

CCGOP Digs Themselves in Deeper

by lewwaters

Ship 1 As expected, my post Clark GOP Playing Dirty Again? was not well received by some extremist factions within the Clark County Republican Party, who seemingly spent much of Monday, May 19 scurrying around doing damage control and attempting to make themselves appear altruistic.

In the process, they have made some claims that are not being confirmed by the ones they are attributed to when I contacted them.

These extremists would have you believe that the initial email sent out to a selective group of PCO candidates was their effort to ferret out what they describe as a conspiracy against them by some WSRP operative in Bothell that “has been caught filing at least 20 online PCO applications on behalf of Clark County residents, some of whom had no intention of filing and gave no permission to use their names.”

Clark GOP Playing Dirty Again?

by lewwaters

This blog made no secret of the dirty, underhanded tactics used by the Republican Party back in 2010 that saw a good conservative Republican undermined in favor of Jaime Herrera. It appears that even though the so called “establishment” that was responsible then is no longer chairing the Clark County Republican Party, the dirty politics against Republicans continues.

Precinct Committee Officers are the backbone of any political party that reach out to neighbors, vote for the party platform and if need be, select replacements if an elected partisan officials cannot complete their term in office.

While we have been pointing out how the Democrat Party has been requiring a lock-step position and it is Republicans that truly are the “Big Tent” party, welcoming diverse views, how disappointing to see the below email forwarded to me that allegedly is seeking to set up a lock-step, one view attitude within PCO’s in Clark County.

Recipient’s information has been removed, but not the senders and party officials connected.
