Why is Susan Peters, a liberal democrat, moderating this event?
Who cares? Not much difference between the GOP and the DEMs, one favors the warfare state and the other favors the welfare state.
Either way we end up with BIG GOVERNMENT!
To Anon: Let me take a shot at it……maybe Susan was the lowest bidder?
To Dismal: Dude! I care. Yes, especially in this town there exists a “thick gray line”. Party Establishment looms over the heads of these candidates like the smog of China.
All the more reason to show up, (for a change), and help Ms. Peters moderate.
My interest is to find out if there will be any faint whisperings of the Constitution overheard. Which candidate will actually reveal their genuine passion, insight and fortitude in returning our 4th District to sound economic specifications, backed by Constitutional wisdom. Will there be a candidate present that will rise up and pierce the smog, challenging, not only the opposing candidates, but the Party Establishment as well? Which candidate will boast the most about their experience, established party entrenchment and stacks of money already garnered? Maybe…..because of experience, entrenchment and the “stacks” is why there have been ONLY “faint whisperings” of Truth thus far….
Truth? Yeah. You will know it when you hear it, but you will have to be there.
great forum, i wish i found it earlier…
