Our Election

I have been listening to the radio ads around town for the candidates in the election. Maybe I'm wrong but I smell a Rod Adair running a number of the campaigns. I think Rod loves the negative bash Richardson thing. He does it on a regular basis himself. Many are running these "proud conservative",(for the life of me I can't figure out what they are so proud of) bash Richardson ads. As a matter of fact, Nora Espinoza is running an ad that I would run as an attack ad AGAINST her. She lists a number of things she believes in and any one of them would be enough to make me vote against her. When you combine them all together she sounds like a raving wingnut lunatic. Only McCarty and Kakuska stress the positive. If we HAVE to have Repugs in Chaves County I would vote for these people. The others would get my vote under NO circumstances. If we keep electing people that are more interested in political fights than doing the states business we will only get more of these people and more of these nutjob ads.

Adair of course was arrested yesterday by Roswell Police for an outstanding warrant in Guadalupe Co
on a failure to appear or pay a traffic ticket, doing 85 in a 55. Unfortunately, he was not booked, therefore not fingerprinted or photographed, as he was allowed to call the judge in Guadalupe Co after the arrest but before the booking, and got the warrant removed. He told some story about having arranged for a court date after his failure to appear on March 30th and thus the issuance of the warrant. What do you think would have happened to someone who was not a state senator or with the right connections? But that is the way they are. Typical small town pre-1970s mentality that if you have the connections you get special treatment and this is to be done openly because that's how things are done down on the plantation. And now for something that will get some of the locals here angry. The reason that things are this way here is because of the plantation mentality that is allowed and largely accepted here and, yes, because so many of the people here are just plain stupid!
Usually, such bad behavior is given a more sophisticated spin by the establishments elsewhere, but not in stuck in a time warp Roswell. And anyone who does speak out against it is ridiculed in the editorial pages of the local paper. They will print the stories as journalists are supposed to do, but on the editorial page they let you know by their views and more importantly by the hate attacks of others that they print,what is what and where your place is. And the reason you see so many Repug ads is because the oil industry, with its tax breaks and subsidies that the non-connected don't receive aka the rest of us, is because that great example of free enterprise recently gave some $90K to the Chaves Co Republican Party, whose candiates can be counted on to rail against taxes, socialized medicine, etc., while supporting more tax breaks and subsidies for their free enterprise big bidness. They do support education funding because they intend to make sure that public schools become a prop machine for their global corporatists market views, but we can't allow any opposing views because those are socialist! Actually, it would be a life changing experience for Roswell Schools to teach Democratic Socialism so people could see what it really is and that if it had not been for Democratic Socialists in the past you would not have labor laws, Social Security, Medicare and other social measures which have enabled the U.S. working class to have, until the last couple of decades, the highest standard of living in the world. But the num nums buy the prop that it was by their up by the bootstraps and no government attitude that they made it on their own and those who didn't have only themeselves to blame. Not realizing of course that the global capitalist machine, while being the source of most of the prop attack on our social institutions, is wrecking that very standard of living e.g., cutting taxes for the wealthiest and corps, wasteful spending on Iraq and subsidies for big bidness, and then using the resultant budget deficits to claim we must have personal i.e., private, savings accounts because Social Security is going broke and nothing can be done. They then ignore and attack those who show what can be done. And Medicare is going broke so we can't have it and obviously there is not enough money for national health care although we pay more in premiums than we would in taxes and would get more health care with less bureaucracy. And nations that do address these problems are run by far leftist who are a danger to us, us being the global corporatists not the average American, or they are those nice European social democracies that the global corporatists are also trying to destroy. Just go to the Roswell daily reactionary and see their usual, like today's, where the heritage foundation tells us we must abandon Social Security and Medicare, and another columnist attacks South American leaders who are really trying to do something for their people against the global corporatists. This does not mean they are perfect and if they give in to the greed system they to should be opposed and replaced, but this is not why they are being attacked. They are attacked because they oppose the the global corporatists neo-liberal agenda long supported by the U.S. of privatizing public resources, cutting social spending and increasing national debt to such evil ilk as the IMF and World Bank. The num nums in the U.S. and elsewhere and to a larger extent in Roswell keep believing in the nonsense that they made it on their own, that Latin America is a threat to us. While actually sudsidies to businesses here have allowed them to enter countries there and destroy the domestic small scale businesses, which Americans supposedly believe in, and then with increased poverty the people congregate increasingly in slums, or head to guess where ?! But the num nums keep watching American Idle Lost Surviver Idols and voting for social darwinists who rant against taxes while giving tax breaks to their corporate pimps and watching the buddle headed bleach blondes and assorted air heads tell us the latest corp prop while of course believing that only those who were behind the iron curtain and those in the poor and ignorant nations could be taken in by government media prop because we believe (worship?) free enterprise. Note: criminals in poor areas use overt phyical violence on others. What type of violence do criminals among the wealthy use on the rest of us?

Marc...spot on as usual, donkey...that suprises me. The campaign isnt being run by him then because its not his type of campaign. Rod does do the right thing on occasion. Don't know if he has flip flopped on this but when the torture thing first came out at Abu Grieb he came out as opposed. I know it seems only logical but in wingnuttia world some STILL find some apologist reason to back it or at least try to pass it off as no big deal.

Read the pathetic remarks by Alice Eppers in her ad in Sunday's RDR Voter's Guide to get a feel for the unreality of Roswell and S.E. New Mexico. Just go ask Alice.

The Donkey was wrong. Adair was backing Ms. Espinoza. That is what happens when the Donkey does not sleep and relies on a tired brain. The donkey misread a post on another blog about Adiar. Ron was right.

Well the election is over and we see just what element we have here. Geez, I have to admit, I don't know how you guys do it.
I didnt know who Rod was endorsing. I just knew his M.O. and it was quite "Espinoza". I give it to them, they win..a lot...that to me seems really sad. The people that actively seek partisan bickering...that think what they oppose is more important than what they favor and want to advance. There are an unusually high number of angry liberals or democrats and such around here. I perfectly understand why. You guys deserve a metal for keeping any sanity here.

Good news is that New Mexico had about 2 to 1 more voters in the Democratic Primary than the Republican Primary. Roswell/Chaves
Co and a couple of other S.E. NM counties are the only ones that go 2 to 1 Repub. Even, San Juan Co. with Farmington and home to Bingaman's Repub Opponent, the Frist Clone and Dracula Lookalike, had 7,200 Repub votes and about 6,000 Dem. So while Roswell continues in step with the fascists, and yes that is a correct term, who are destroying our people and nation for privatized greed, at least most of the rest of the nation, New Mexico
and the world are Trying to march to a different drummer than the market-worshiping global corporatists. The mainstream "liberal" media is still the main purveyor of behind the corporatist curtain propaganda.
