If anyone out there in Prince William County land really believes that the fire-house primary scheduled for April 25 is an accident, I have a bridge for sale. Life isn’t that random. The harbingers of hostile-grab have been out there for months. The plans have been in the process of being laid for several years. We have been warned time and time again. I am just not sure who was really listening. Some of us were.
Even if no one was listening, we should have all sat up and taken notice when a GOP candidate was eliminated from his primary because he filed his paperwork late. Now what is the likelihood of 2 different late filings disqualifying people within the same two months in the same county? I am just not buying it. Essence of rat comes wafting in once again.
Look no further than the Gainesville Cartel. Let’s face it, the contenders for supervisor wouldn’t have a ghost of a chance in a general primary. The Gainesville Cartel has been recruiting and building its contenders over the past year or so. It starts with tearing down others and building up little-known people into something they are not. Recruitment has been heavy handed at times. The tearing down and destroying has been going on for quite some time. Just follow the internet ink.
The ultimate goal is to party-bust and rid the local party of all Republicans who might be not only too moderate but also might not be under the influence as those who would see themselves as king makers. Yes, there is some definite royal ego involved in all this political chicanery.
It’s very safe to say that voters will not be getting an independent thinker if any of the supervisor contenders are elected on April 25. The puppetmaster will be ever-present, not far behind the candidate contenders, speaking in their ear. Should the contenders win the fire house primary, it will almost surely end up a sweep for Democrats. That’s just what happens when those with tea-party mentality try to take over a county. Prince William would become a former image of itself, with even more drastically reduced services and a leaner educational system.
I can hear the Democrats doing the heavy breathing thing, smacking their lips and salivating over the thoughts of their win. If the supervisor-contenders pull this off, and they very well might, because of the nature of fire house primaries, then they will face a general election where all bets are off. The Democrats see the shady business going on with the bat-snot crazy side of the local GOP and are sitting back chuckling, waiting for the fall-out to settle. They won’t even have to soften the Republicans up after the hostile take over. The local GOP will have already handled that end of things. This election is ripe for the picking by lucky Democrats.
Meanwhile, I understand that concerned citizens have contacted the DOJ over election ….errrr…irregularities. They should. Something is rotten in Prince William County.
