The Republican base will not support Michigan Governor’s reelection bid because he has taken the state solidly to the Left.
He doesn’t care because he has forged a partnership with Big-Money Progressives and he believes that he can buy the election without the support of grassroots Constitutionalists who attend those “wacko” Tea Party and Liberty meetings.
But wait, what is this:
An organized campaign to bring the Republican grassroots back to the voting booth on November 4th with a clear strategy to
- Support genuine Constitutional Republicans for the Michigan House and Senate (and other down-ballot offices)
- Boycott the Nerd, thus creating Gridlock rather than slide further to the Left.
Is this just more “tin foil hat” fantasy or a pragmatic strategy that might just work?
You decide but first take a look at
Why didn’t Republican legislators uphold their own party platform and stand against a governor who embraced Obamacare?
Voting for divided government shows Republican leaders we have evolved into strategic voters who will no longer support anyone just because they have an (R) behind their name.
The Cato Institute scored Snyder particularly poorly on spending, noting that he increased the general fund budget by a whopping 7.3% in 2013, and an estimated 7.8% in 2014. Further, increases in state spending have outpaced median household income in Michigan. According to the American Community Survey income has decreased by over 10% from 2007 to 2013. In contrast Lansing budgets have increased by 15%.
The Michigan Republican base has the power to decide the November 4th election. Will they stay home in despair, or march into the voting booth with a strategy to boycott Snyder (or maybe even vote for Democrat Mark Schauer) in order to Gridlock a state that is rapidly moving Left.
