    You're probably right. But my observations are that you and others would love for local politics to take a hard turn to the left. Now you can demand that I be banned.

    Walton County voted Huckabee for cripes sake. You can't get more conservative than Walton County. And not likely to change in our lifetimes. So what? What does left or right have to do with local politics? :blink:

    You must be really frustrated that conservatives win in the area.

    What does local government have to do with left or right? Government is elected officials who are politicians. In the panhandle the elected officials are mostly conservatives (right). And sometimes you can't separate national politics from local and state politics. Some issues, particularly those with constitutional questions that need to be resolved must be decided in state and Federal courts and judges. That's all part of politics and government.

    Can you give us a specific example where the affiliation or political leaning of a Walton County elected official matters in regards to a local issue?

    You tell me. You're the one who wants to "turn the tide" with county officials that think like you do. You implied that I was bring national politics into the discussion by my mentioning the names of two left wing extremists from other states. I was only suggesting that you and some others want county officials who think like the idiots that I mentioned.

    He is being kind and substituting for Christ, but you already knew that.
