If that is true, I am amazed that Republicans allow that to happen.

wrong my friend. your county commission is beng run by liberal democrats. some do indeed call themselves republicans but that don't make it so. I blame the party. ANYONE can put an R by their name and they are welcomed into the tent. How about Robin Quillen, Jan Kiker, M.C. Rollins, Moss, and a couple of others. Go look at their voting records. Limited government? Fiscal responsibility? You are kidding yourself if you think true republicans are running things. Just look who sided with Tim White so he would get a pass. Look who pushed the tax hike. Look who voted to vastly expand the power and scope of the road department, the schools, and on and on. Watch how they vote and what they say. Not the letter they put by their names. they are counting on an uninformed or disinterested voting public to just keep putting them in again and again so they just keep doing whatever they want. Representative Government? Not as long as the public is not paying attention.

That sounds like they are just the opposite from extreme left-wingers, atheists, gun grabber wannabes, and those who take orders from the homosexuals, transgenders, and third tri-mester abortionists. The rest of the Democrats are just nice folks who want to open the borders to all illegals in order to get voters, and give people's tax money to worthless lowlife scum who won't work in a pie factory.

personally I side with conservative republicans, of which there are only a few on the commission. J.Carter, R. Hopson, T. Hensley, R. Bird are the most consistent in their conservative voting patterns on the big important issues. Occassionally a few others will swing over but for the most part, the liberals rule. And count Seay among the liberals, and he is Chairman of the Rep. Caucus. Go figure. David claims to be conservative and is going to run for mayor, but I am not so sure about that.

By the way, the door can swing both ways. There are several democrats who truthfully call themselves democrats and that's fine. But there is one democrat who is actually a fairly conservative republican, in my opinion. Who? B. Dabbs.

David Crum is a shoe-in for county mayor.
