Excerpt from Florida News Report

Are Florida Republican Politicians really Republicans?


"...It seems like Republican voters in Florida are waking up ….which is good, even if it feels like a hangover. 

It is a rough day when one realizes their political worldview has been based on slick ads, rehearsed GOP talking points and the false belief that ANY politician with an R behind their name is better than any democrat. And we aren’t talking about members of our Party voting for candidates based on name recognition. We are talking about smart, patriotic, motivated Republican voters whose votes are based on the candidate’s policy positions which come directly from the candidate.

Only they are discovering they can’t believe what some Republican candidates say. 

These Republican voters have been hoodwinked and have woken up to that fact. These Republican voters realize “the Swamp” is filled with as many Republicans as it is despicable Democrats and as they accept that fact, they become angry. "

And rightly so.  Due to the seriousness of the issue, we have reprinted the editorial in its entirety on the Manatee Patriots Blog Post page.  To go there now, kindly click on the button below:
