|Eric Cantor-------Dave Brat|
The national talking heads were saying "immigration" was the reason but I don't buy it. I think the conservatives targeted Cantor because he was the Numero Dos in thre House and if you boot someone that high up it sends shivers up the spines of the rest. If it was a Texas House member, probably not the same impact. But of course we have to listen to those Washington DC "expert" talking heads since all the news shows never chat with "joe or Jane public". The Tea Party was dead according to the democrat big mouths only a week ago! Now the Tea Party is in control of the Republican Party according to the same democrat know-it-all's! Too funny.
With news on 24/7 and all these so called "experts" telling everyone what to think and believe, you would think Americans were just a bunch of robots shown how to pull the levers of ballot machines for the status quo (well it is for the democrat party). But to me this should be a big lesson to all politicians who forget about their constituents in their own districts. This is true from Congress down to dog catcher. Keep those "pot holes" repaired or risk being defeated.
I do feel bad for Cantor but I also feel good for the process. Too bad the democrat party is so unreachable for any change. They elect and re-elect scofflaws like Alcee Hastings and Charlie Rangel and others. It takes a death to even budge one inner city democrat. Those politicians are so effective since they get most of the transfer money and disburse it to their constituents. That keeps the "money drug" disbursed and the unrest at ease. But once again we see the Republicans/Conservatives as the people and party of change. We usually have spirited primaries and those status quo types can never rest easy. American politics will miss Eric Cantor but the process of his defeat is the true winner.
