An Inside Look at What’s Wrong in the MIGOP

If anyone cares to look at the information in this report you will get a clear view of how the MIGOP is not serving its members or those who elect its so-called Republicans.

The bottom line is that those Republicans thinking that the MIGOP represents them and or the Republican Party platform including principles and values, you are sadly mistaken. Duress and Distress Describes the MIGOP

While I have compiled to much information as to post in this report after reading it you will have a real good grasp of what is really going on within the “good ‘ole boys club.”

It’s all about self serving individuals who care not for state, country and the Republican Party or what it is supposed to stand for but for self enrichment and a feeling of being a part of the corrupt club.

The MIGOP make no mistake about it has been infiltrated by the Democrats who left their Party because it had moved to far to the left. What we have now is nothing more than Democrats masquerading as Republicans.

Here’s a social media conversation where MIGOP “hacks” decided to exchange some unpleasant disrespect to newly elected Conservative Republican Representative Todd Courser. Snake-oil-salesman475

Jamie Roe All I know is that in her first office lottery draw Candice Miller drew #52 out of 53 and Katherine Harris drew #1. Demanded a recount, but to no avail.

Still got an office and it worked out just fine. Doesn’t matter where you sit or where your office is. All that matters is how you serve the people. 17 hrs • Like • 10

Paul Welday Top this Jamie Roe. I was assigned the task of picking Congressman Joe Knollenberg’s original office in the U.S. House lottery. Freshman are the last to select their offices and and there were 114 freshman that year, one of the largest new classes in history.

Well, even with the odds in my favor I selected number 112 out of 114. I don’t know who the two were that drew worse than me, but our office was so small, part of our staff had to work in the broom closet down the hall.

So, these complaints I’m hearing from some Michigan House freshman really don’t phase me. Jamie said it…just serve the people and quit whining. 15 hrs • Like • 7 Broke GOP-Split

Dan Wholihan Stu, I wasted 15-20 minutes of my life reading that email about the house seat. I didn’t think guys his age were supposed to have temper tantrums. Frankly, I think the guy that sent the email was lucky to win election. If it was 2006/2008, he would have lost. Maybe even 2004, which was a good Republican year in his district. 15 hrs • Edited • Like • 5

Greg Fogleman Thank you Stu Sandler. I spoke too soon. It was in my inbox and I didn’t notice. GOP Flag upside down

Many of these same participants are also advocates of amending the Elliot Larsen Act which goes against the Republican Party Plank that marriage should be between one woman and one man as stated in the Party platform and the continued disrespectful rants on Conservative Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema.

There are many, many other names of so-called establishment supporting players than those listed in the message above that are not friends of Freedom and Liberty.

The “Friends and Family” Program along with the “Business Buddies” Fund are alive and well within the “Good ‘Ole Boys” Club of the MIGOP and for the members, grassroots, conservatives and the Tea Party faithful that are not in good standing your not part of their little click.

Cantor’s Defeat Proves “The Conservative Tea Party” Voice Means Business

This should show the establishment MIGOP that when they attack the Grassroots, Conservatives, Libertarians and Tea Party faithful and their voices are ignored you will pay a price at the voting booth! A Tea Party

For Michigan’s Republican voters can you say the “dele-gate” fiasco with the Romney supporters or how about that fiasco at the Tampa Convention?

But it just doesn’t end with those two examples either. How about all the state party rule changes brought down by the power brokers of the MIGOP as to stifle the Grassroots Conservative Tea Party voices here in Michigan?

The party establishment will go to any and all lengths as to protect their perceived power and control along with their spots at the public “feeding trough” over its shrinking membership. 

They have forgotten that we put them into power in 2010 with our votes and we can take that power away just as easy with those same votes! Looks like George Carlin was absolutely spot on with his quote – “It’s just a big club and guess what…we aren’t in it.” A Eric Cantor

So much for polls – Last week a poll commissioned by The Daily Caller had Cantor’s lead slipping, but he was still beating Brat by 13 points.

Cantor’s campaign dismissed that poll’s lead as ridiculously low, saying the Republican would “win by a much stronger margin.” Internal polling showed Cantor up 34 points. 

It should come as no surprise that “political party machines” consistently do internal polling on policy issues that may reflect their re-election campaigns. But the internal polling on Eric Cantor proves that it’s not an exact science doesn’t it?

In a bit of a preview of what was to come, the incumbent chairman of the congressional district’s local Republican Party also a Cantor loyalist was defeated as well by a Tea Party favorite.

So the message here in Michigan to all the “Faux” Tea Party infiltrators that are nothing more than establishment lackey’s who bow to their establishment “master’s” beware you will come out on the losing end! A WE THE VOTERS

Conservative pundit Erick Erickson said Tuesday that the Virginia results showed the tea party should not be taken too lightly. Erick Erickson is a politically conservative American blogger and editor-in-chief of the blog site RedState.com.

Eric Cantor raised about $5.4 million during the campaign, compared with Dave Brat’s $200,000 so all the money in the world couldn’t offset the wrath of the Grassroots Conservative Tea Party voters! Fool the voters once shame on the politician, fool the voters twice shame on the voters.

MIGOP “Tactics” as to get “Their” Chosen Candidates Elected

I’m sure this is going on all over the state as to stifle the Grassroots, Conservatives and Tea Party that dare challenge the establishment but this one is in my own backyard. We all have seen how the MIGOP establishment has gone after and targeted two conservatives Justin Amash and Kerry Bentivolio. Jason Sheppard and Richardville

I had seen in my facebook notifications that one of my facebook friends liked a page so I investigated. To my surprise and shock I couldn’t believe that many of my conservative friends would like a “yes man” for Senate Majority leader Randy Richardville for State Rep. 

The MIGOP establishment has a plan in place as to get their chosen candidates elected and will go to any and all lengths as to make sure this happens. Let’s take a close look at just one example in my district how they are going about this.

State Rep. Dale Zorn was first elected in November 2010 to the Michigan House to represent the residents of Monroe County for a two year term this after being a county commissioner for the past 20 years. Has he ever worked in the private sector? How many years is enough of feeding at the public trough? Zorn failed we the people are michigan ad

Now with Senate Majority leader Randy Richardville being term limited Mr. Zorn will forgo his final two years of eligibility as a House Rep. to pursue the seat in the Senate being vacated by Mr. Richardville his life long buddy. Hmmm…

Couple that with another Richardville “yes man” former Monroe County Republican Party “puppet” chairman and current county commissioner Jason Shepard being “anointed” to run for the State Rep. seat being vacated by current State Rep. Dale Zorn.

Oh the webs they weave in the political arena here in Michigan. Word from inside Lansing’s Capitol from a very reliable source is that Mr. Zorn can’t cast a vote without contacting Party leadership as to see how he should vote! Is this representing the people who elected him or the Party? I believe the answer to that is clear. Jason Sheppard with State Representative Dale Zorn

This candidate Jason Sheppard has consistently “name dropped” and “bragged” about having dinners with Governor Snyder and his wife along with Senate Majority leader Richardville and his wife (before their much publicized divorce) at several establishment Party functions so this should show that this candidate is establishment all the way and if elected will represent Party over citizens.

I contacted all my facebook friends who is shown to have liked Jason Sheppard for State Rep. and not one of them said they liked his page! Hmmm…Something bad wrong here folks!

Additional interesting sources and information pertaining to this story:

For those fellow Conservative Patriot friends that his page shows you have liked, several have already un-liked once this was brought to their attention. If you like Snyder and Richardville’s “liberal policies” your sure to like Jason Sheppard and Dale Zorn.
