Poisoning The Well

The cancer of the local Republican Party can be easily exposed. Where did our party  that once boldly professed its conservative values go? How did we allow crony-like control to seep in and remove any member's voice? While Chairman Coleman makes a good chair, he allows others to drive the agenda, rather than himself.

Why would a vice chair celebrate with republicans in one room and meet with Archer in another? Why would a republican work with democrats to undermine other republicans? Usually the answer to these pressing questions is, control. Those who serve because of position, name recognition and self interests over those who elect them.

There isn't much that happens in the local party where, if traced back, hasn't been touched by Terri Bivins. From Norman Brown's final act of betrayal selling equipment  that involved Randy Bivins in some ways to the obvious conflict of interests being an aid to a representative and serving as the party's vice chair, her hand is at play. And while her holding such dual offices can be an advantage, it can be the downfall as well. The party works to find good conservatives to run, that will do the will of conservatives. In this set of circumstances, over time, the representative drives the party leaving his agenda to become the rule rather than the party dictating the rule.

Coleman is weak and it shows in the party. If not for the republican swing, Coleman would be wearing a pork chop around his neck so the dogs would play with him.
