Earlier, I posted about the Republican booth at the Sioux Empire fair, about how it wasn’t really wasn’t inviting, and seemed kind of tired.
Judging from some of the e-mail I received, my opinion was shared by several others.
Saturday, Repersentive Steve Hicky posted some pictures to Facebook, One of the pictures had this capition
A guy walked by and looked at the table and said “they are all overpaid crooks.” I’m still stumped on what I could’ve/should’ve replied. It took me $22000 to win and it pays $6000 a year.
This attitude is prevalent among non-politico junkies:
- Democrat = tax and spend
- Republican = borrow and spend
- Tea Party = wanna bees
- ?Government takes my money and does what it wants.?
- ?They don’t listen to me, why should I care.?
- ?Once they take an oath, they are part of the establishment?
This your Country,
This is your State.
This is your County, township and cities. It is time to step up and take some pride where you live. If you don’t like who repersenting you, replace them.
Stace, Representative Nelson was running for office, I asked him ?Why?? he told me:
I love this state, and everything about it. I don’t like the direction it is going. I hope to help to bring back.
This district (25) is underserved, it deserves better
I can think of no better reason.
After the election I asked what advice does he have for someone looking to run.
- Start fund-raising early.
- Get out and meet the people, and listen to them. They are the ones you have to convince.
- Get a good pair of shoes.
The people are tried of gimmicks, bait and switch and political double talk. They want honest, no non- sense, people who will represent them and make their voices heard. When they come back from the legislature, they want straight talk about what is going on.
