Pardon me for saying so, but the ‘Democrats for Change’ challenge to the ‘Machine Pols’ has a snowball’s chance in Hades of succeeding. I take no pleasure in saying this, but the professional politicians are too well entrenched in their positions for a well-deserved change to occur.
The Regular Democratic Organization, with its legions of blinders-wearing loyalists, will once again obey their masters voice and rally the troops to get out the vote and crush all legitimate dissent and challenge. Once again the ‘corrupt’ political power brokers of Union County will unleash the vicious ‘Hounds of Hades’ to subvert true representative government.
There is no way the likes of Sheriff Ralph ‘Fossil’ Froehlich will be pried loose from his well-worn seat in the courthouse any time soon. It is outrageous, and at the same time laughable, that this elected law enforcement official, a man who has never met a camera or a microphone he didn’t like, would rather chase a ghost around the courthouse instead of dealing with more important issues, such as illegal immigration and the crime generated decline in the quality-of-life in our communities.
I agree that it is time to change the political landscape in Union County, but until the general public wises up and storms the steps of government with voting ballot in hand and casts out the political prostitutes and brazen bureaucrats who turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to their constituents’ concerns, political life in Union County will sail merrily along for the foreseeable future.
