Mr. Nelms article

I read his article on our apathy.
I think he missed the boat by more than a gangplank length! Our problem here in Fayette County is that we only have one party! How can we just complain to them and get any change? We can't.
A republican writing to a democrat leader is useless, also.
The republicans have failed us miserably. When they had the congress they did nothing but spend. When they had the Executive branch they did nothing but spend and go to war. It is time to try the other party wholeheartedly. How can it get worse?
We need a government now who will wipe out the dishonest business and political leaders, including banks, and replace them with less dishonest people.
Let us dribble up for awhile instead of trying to dribble never got to the bottom this time.

while I am sure it comes as no surprise to the "regulars" on here, this is exactly what I have been advocating for some time. Why support a party that cares NOTHING for what the people think about their leaders, when we can support a party that actually listens to the voters? And I am not necessarily talking about national level politics, though such a change will be just a welcome there as they would be on the local level. Keep the faith

Even a dead fish can go with the flow.

And yet old sage is going to vote for the Republican, by his own admission, he believes in everything Obama is saying, yet he is going to vote for the Republican, go figure. Tell how the Democratic party is working for Clayton County, certainly not national level politics, how many Republicans you figure are on their school board, or even anywhere in their elected officials?

I am not voting for a republican as such---I am voting for John McCain, the best person running this time.
I fear that Obama will go too far in the opposite direction with an even more democratic congress.
There are some good things about both parties and some terrible things, also.

and you know that is not really relevant here in Fayette County. The Democratic Party in Fayette County is quite different from the Democratic Party in other counties. I understand how many Democrats are going to vote Republican so that they can have a say in local elections. I can only shake my head. Eventually, the voters need to look seriously at how they vote and elect people to represent them.

BTW...our condo here in Hilton Head is located on the 18th fairway of the Robert Trent Jones course in Palmetto Dunes. Nice digs. Keep the faith.

Party affiliation at the local level is for the most part silly.
Our local officials join whatever party they feel will get them elected.
We have 4 “Republicans” running for sheriff. Three come from within the department. If there wasn’t some that have more liberal leanings and some with more conservative ideas, would there really be 4 of them?
The same goes for probate judge and Pfiefer’s seat on the commission.

Robert Horgan: probably more of an independent than anything else… ditto for Maxwell
Jack Smith: ran as a Republican, acts like a moderate Democrat.
My state senator Valencia Seay: technically a Democrat, but could easily pass as a somewhat conservative Republican
Vernon Jones: the Dekalb CEO is running as a Democrat for U.S. senate, but he is so conservative that he actually brags about voting for Bush in ‘04
The entire Fayette County school board: Republican in name only. Might as well be a board of Olympia Snow’s and Lincoln Chafee’s.
