Election day in Massachusetts for the U.S. Senate seat that the late Sen. Teddy Kennedy held for 46 years. The democratic attorney general Martha Coakley is in for a nail biter as maverick republican and ‘teabag conservative’ Scott Brown runs for the republicans.
I have to say Massachusetts be careful what you ask for because Conservative mavericks like Scott Brown talk a good game about jobs and taxes but like Sen. Jim Demint of S.C. they tend to have strong ties to big corporate entities and if your job, well-being, or self-interest conflicts with the CEO’s and their lobbyist machine you lose every time.
I know South Carolinians were so enthused when they voted for an outsider candidate. A politician who was a new politician who promised lower taxes and prosperity for the state. His name is Gov. Mark Sanford and hows that working out? We have nearly the highest unemployment, lowest wages, bad roads, etc…etc…ect… also a governor who ran out on his state and his family by secretly taking trips to Argentina to be with his mistress.
Just beware what these conservative mavericks will do once they get a seat they tend to forget the people and rub shoulders with bigger special interests and I believe electing Scott Brown is bad for Massachusetts and the country.
GET OUT THE VOTE DEMOCRATS OF MASSACHUSETTS, VOTE MARTHA COAKLEY AND CONTINUE TO BUILD A STRONG AMERICA FOR ALL!
