A quote from the leftist Welsh politician Aneurin Bevan, “politics is a bloodsport” is often heard from fringe elements to justify their vitriol and smearing of opponents in campaigns. Mostly it seems to now be coming from more right wing elements professing deep hatred for anything on the left.

To them, compromise or meeting in the middle is tantamount to high treason as they seek to impose their tyrannical view by any means deemed appropriate.

Tragically, we see this attitude all too often these past few years right here in Clark County Political campaigns as a small but nefarious group of right wingers seems hellbent on seizing power in our county by any means necessary.

Stand Up To The Elected Bullies

Although pertaining to Canada, 88 year-old Joy Taylor speaks her mind against these government programs the left claims is for our benefit and so they can “take care of us.”

Her message is plain and simple, “Stand Up To The Bullies.”

How many times now have we seen elected officials ridicule, smear or denigrate citizens? Think Jeanne Harris and ‘Gavel Down’ if unable to think of an example.

How fast did Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt flip-flop on his campaign platform of No Tolls?

How often has Portland Mayor Sam Adams ignored citizen concerns?

Stand up! Speak up! Fight back!
