An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Ok people…if you live in Tennessee, and you didn’t do early voting….get your hind ends to the polls today! There are some important races going on…. Like in our area….one of my favorite people, and state rep, Vance Dennis has a primary opponent. Now, I’m not going to say anything bad about Shirley, but for the life of me, I can’t imagine why that little old lady thinks she could do a better job than good conservative like Vance. This one has quite a few people scratching their heads.
Then, there is the U.S. senator, up for re-election, Bob Corker. Now, Corker is a nice guy, and says, mostly, the right things, but his conservative rating is pretty pathetic. Freedom Works rates him at 63, which is lower than Linsay Graham, and we KNOW he’s not a conservative. That’s My Congress has rated him at 55 in the conservative column, and 17 in the “progressive”. I’d prefer to have a Senator who got a ZERO in that one, but hey..can’t have everything. There is a young fellow, no one has heard much about named Zack, who I think would do a fine job in the Senate, as long as he doesn’t allow the establishment RINOs to influence him. That seems to happen WAY too much. The “that’s the way things are done around here” types have GOT to go!
And, even though I’m not in that district (TN 9th), if I could, I’d be voting for Charlotte Bergmann today. But I’m not a dem, so I won’t cheat! Getting rid of extreme leftist Steve Cohen would be the best thing that could ever happen to the Memphis area!
Also, in the state races (TN 6th district), Lou Ann Zelenick is hoping to unseat what seems to be a big disappointment, Dianne Black.
So, do your civic duty! THINK before you cast your vote, and decide who best represents YOUR values. Then vote your values! Not your ‘party’, or how your daddy voted. Use your brain!
