It’s a little hard to follow if you don’t live in Massachusetts, but our State Senate districts are mostly gerrymandered globs of towns – and parts of towns. US Senator Scott Brown had represented the district called quaintly “NORFOLK, BRISTOL and PLYMOUTH”. Yesterday’s special election was to fill “the Scott Brown Seat” [Sorry, I just had to say that!]
State Rep Richard Ross won – nicely. 62% nicely! He even beat the democratic challenger – an emergency room doctor – in his home town of Needham. Only the socialist bedrooms of Wellesley and Wayland, and union bedroom Natick voted for more Kool-Aid. Up and down the district, the TEA Parties made the difference.
Remember Massachusetts is broke, is suffering 10% unemployment and even the “clean / green jobs are leaving the state. But our totally doofus governor [Obummer’s Law School roommate], and his pack of pet mice on Beacon Hill are TOTALLY preoccupied with passing the Transgender Bathroom Bill.
So ~ maybe ~ enough of our formerly liberal voters have run out of Kool-Aid – maybe because they’ve watched their 401Ks tank, and they’ve been laid off. 10% unemployment will do that to even knee-jerk liberal jerks.
There comes a point when the light goes on.
The US Govt is mortgaging our future to pay for lollypop trees [which don’t exist], and Duh-Val Patrick and his pack of pet mice are doing the same thing here.
In a country where 1 of every 10 workers works for some level of government – when will the other 9 say “enough”? 15,893 said “Enough!” yesterday. Congratulations Senator Ross! Congrats too to the TEA Parties! You ARE making a difference despite all the liberal slurs and name-calling. Keep up the FIRE!
