Clark County has become a microcosm of the bitter political divide seen throughout America as fringe elements on both sides of the aisle duke it out for control and more power in their hands to rule over us.
But that isn’t what our country was founded to be. I was taught that we were to be a shining example of diverse views meeting in the middle to hammer out disagreements and agree on solutions that would best benefit all, not just one side or the other.
Although I initially opposed it, we saw an effort at undoing such control by passing a home rule charter that stripped one such demagogue, David Madore, of the dictatorial powers he was exercising over the County once he was elected to the County Commission.
Needless to say, that has not set well with either him or his merry little band of supporters, henchmen if you will as they seek to marginalize, silence or destroy any voices speaking up in opposition to Madore’s bullying efforts.
This blog and its author became a prime target of the group of Madore miscreants two years ago when it was revealed that his minions controlling the Clark County Republican Party were scheming to stack PCO slots to solidify their control. In one fell swoop, gone was Reagan’s notion of a “big tent party” as diverse views were shouted down and only those agreeable to the party hierarchy and Madore were heard.
Unfortunately, some I once considered a friend seemed to have joined in after being called upon by Madore. I assume he is being paid well for it, but that is neither here nor there.
Shortly after Madore copied me this ‘nastygram,” I began noticing more and more that where Kelly and I had once not confronted each other when we disagreed, he began dogging me on facebook and here to confront me on many issues I wrote about. This was especially so when I expressed my no longer supporting Madore or that I supported Republicans he despises, such as Sen. Ann Rivers.
For reasons unknown, I won’t dwell on the rumors I’ve heard, he chose to shelve his blog, but comments left on this blog became more like his usual rambling blog posts, complete with the vitriol and acerbic language he is known for.
Growing tired of his confrontational and insulting antics here, it was let known that his comments would no longer be approved, much like he has done on his own blog over the years and that apparently didn’t set well with him as he launched an insulting post within a closed group on facebook, along with congratulatory comments left by other miscreants of the Madore Klan.
Today, he launches away with another, presumably taking exception to my assessment of the 18th Legislative District campaigns and support of Sen. Ann Rivers.
I’ve lost count now of how many times I have read from them that I am just a “bitter old man in my waning years” and “completely irrelevant,” yet the Madore Klan seems unable to move away, exerting efforts to either marginalize or silence me.
Ain’t gonna work, boys.
Clark County, we are at a cross roads in this election.
The time for choosing is now.
Do we continue with Madore’s divisive tactics as he works to solidify his power over the county from a minority position?
Do we allow his goon squad to run roughshod over others and intimidate citizens and elected officials alike to impose Madore’s dictatorial rule over all?
America became a great nation, not by dividing itself into factions or imposing one-sided rule over all, but by reaching out, enlisting diverse views and arriving at solutions to best benefit all.
No, we didn’t always get everything we may want, no one ever does. But that is no reason to act like spoiled brats and throwing tantrums. Especially when the one you throw the tantrum against isn’t a candidate for office and you have repeatedly deemed them to be so “irrelevant.”
The time has come to take a stand and oust those like Madore and the ilk he attracts that works endlessly from the shadows to divide us and exercise his rule over us.
Now is the time to “filet him open like a carp, figuratively” and see him for what he really is, just another cold hearted, power hungry charlatan.
We must ignore all of the seething hatred emanating from the Madore boot lickers and vote in people that are reasonable and willing to work together for the good of all, not just their small club of Brown Shirts.
Hate away, Madorons, the rest of us choose to move forward.
