Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania (former Republican) has swung to the other side of the political spectrum and morphed into…a Democrat. Americans have watched with amazement as he slinked over to the opposition’s side and voted with them well over fifty percent of the time, yet some still seem surprised. I for one am glad he has decided to end the charade and come out of the political closet. After all…he has gotten where he is today masquerading as an elephant when he is actually a…well…you know. Specter’s political career was waning as he faced trailing poll numbers (around 20 points). Competition was going to be fierce from individuals like Congressman Pat Toomey (real Republican) and so…he made a deal with the Democrats…which most likely includes funding from the Democratic coffers during his next election. WE THE PEOPLE are going to have to keep our eye on the ball during the next election…if there is one. We are dangerously close to a filibuster proof Congress and our last line of defense just may be the United States Supreme Court…which sits silently watching until we approach the bench.
Note: When the odds seem stacked against you…go around the stack.
May God bless America…and may America deserve it!
