"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Charlie Crist: The Problem Personified

Back in August, when Charlie Crist was way ahead in the polls to be the next Senator from Florida, I posted on this blog about Marco Rubio who I supported for that position. Rubio has since surged in the polls and currently holds a 23 point lead if the election were held today. At the time, and still currently, both men are members of the Republican Party. Last month, in a Fox News interview Crist acknowledged he was behind in the polls and announced that he would still run as a Republican and had no intention of running on an Independent ticket. Well it looks like Mr. Crist's resolve has waned as it has been reported that he is now thinking about his chances as an Independent candidate. The polls seem to favor him, but in reality he may just be the catalyst that propels another progressive (a Democrat with little chance to win in a two-man race)into the Senate if he does choose to run on the Independent ticket.

It apperas to me that Crist is just another one of theose career politicians looking to make decisions based upon what's best for him, not what's best for the country or his constituents. Way to go Mr. Crist for showing us your true colors. Not Red, White and Blue, but Green for greed!

If You Aren't Outraged, You Aren't Paying Attention! Or, You're Just Part Of The Problem...
