A City That Doesn’t Learn

Yesterday our city had “primary” elections for winnowing down the fields for the races for the Mayorship and two City Commission posts, in November.

Two years ago we dumped an embarrassing ass-hat of a Democrat for an energetic Independent candidate. In two years a city that regularly showed up in “Worst…” lists was now showing up in “Best…” lists. Yesterday the “primary” was between him and two other candidates. He came third, so misses the ballot in November. The winner, Democrat and a career politician, took 50% of the vote. I believe the runner up is a Democrat, too.

Three of the five Commission candidates were independents & polled 3rd, 4th & 5th, behind… yep… two Democrats. The top 4 candidates go through to the ballot in November.

This morning, DW & I were casually discussing the situation and came to the realisation that this city will never learn and never recover properly, because there’s no-one from the right running for elections. The GOP appears to have given up and the Libertarian Party seems virtually nonexistent. Even some of those who ran as independents in the Commission candidacy election only did so because they feel abandoned by the Democrats.

So, come November, the choices are Democrats or pseudo-Democrats. This city never learns…
