Do you REALLY want to change the Delaware Legislature? Then pay attention because you REALLY can make it happen by doing the right thing in this year’s governor selection!

It is so, so easy to TALK about “change” and “reform”.  Those words are meaningless, however, if that’s all they are; just words.

IN THIS PARTICULAR RACE FOR GOVERNOR YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE REFORM AND IMPROVEMENT HAPPEN; AND THAT’S TO VOTE FOR JACK MARKELL.

THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE SIGN THAT A CANDIDATE IS A REAL REFORMER, IS IF HE OR SHE IS WILLING TO CHALLENGE AND OPPOSE HIS OR HER OWN POLITICAL PARTY….AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT JACK MARKELL HAS BEEN DOING…THE DELAWARE DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADERS, BEGGED, AND EVEN ATTEMPTED TO BRIBE JACK MARKELL NOT TO PIRMARY THEIR SELECTION…JOHN CARNEY.  MARKELL DIDN’T SAY IT THIS WAY, BUT IF I HAD BEEN HIS COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR, I WOULD HAVE SAID IT THIS WAY…

“GO SCREW YOURSELF, YOU SELFISH, GREEDY POLITICAL HACKS….JACK MARKELL IS GOING TO PRIMARY CARNEY BECAUSE MARKELL LISTENS TO THE PEOPLE OF DELAWARE, NOT THE POLITICAL PARTY LEADERS OF DELAWARE.  JACK MARKELL KNOWS THAT DEMOCRATES IN THE LEGISLATURE HAVE BEEN SCREWING UP LONG ENOUGH, AND HE WANTS TO RETURN, ETHICS AND PRIFICIENCY TO THE DELAWARE’S DEMOCRATIC PARTY.”

Think about it….what is the single most often repeated phrase when we speak about the Delaware legislature?  We constantly use phrases like; “We’ve got the get rid of the good-ole-boy network, especially in the majority democratic senate.  We name names like: Thurman Adams/ Harris McDowell/ Tony Deluca/ Patty Blevins/ Nancy Cooke/ Bobby Marshall/ Venables/ etc. etc. etc.; the ineffective self-serving crowd.  Yes, those people, and a few others, have been stopping the good bills from getting to the legislative floor for a vote (like open government, for example).  Those are the people who hide the best bills from the public.  They are the same people who manipulate their self-serviing, hidden agendas to make sure they get what THEY want and not what WE, the people, want:  THEY WANTED EMINENT DOMAIN EVEN THOUGH WE THE PEOPLE, DIDN’T WANT IT. The bad legislators manipulated the vote on the over-ride of Minner’s veto, to make sure eminent domain was supported, instead of being destroyed; as most Delaweans wanted.

WELL, THERE IS A WAY TO DIMINISH THE POWER OF THE REALLY BAD LEGISLATORS…..THE ANSWER IS TO MAKE SURE THAT JACK MARKELL IS OUR NEXT GOVERNOR AND NOT JOHN CARNEY.

Here is the resonaing……all those bad guys and gals mentioned above thoroughly support John Carney…why, BECAUSE IF HE WINS, YOU CAN BE SURE THE OLD WAYS WILL STAY IN PLACE. There will be NO CHANGE in the legislature if Carney is governor.  The vaste majority of bad guys and bad ladies in the Senate and in the House of Representatives are supporting Carney. What does that tell you?  

JACK MARKELL IS THE ONLY HOPE FOR REFORM AND IMPROVEMENT.  Take note…..It is generally accepted that  the two best legislators in Dover are SENATOR KAREN PETERSON AND STATE REPRESENTATIVE PETE SCHWARTZKOPF.  Karen and Pete sponsor and vote for the best legislation that comes out of Delaware.  They do not cave in to the political pressure by the party leaders.  They are in the minority by supporting Markell against Carney…that is,  THEY ARE PART OF THE 5% OF THE STATE LEGISLATORS WHO SUPPORT JACK MARKELL.  THEY DO IT BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT JACK WILL DO WHAT WE WANT, AND NOT WHAT THE PARTY MAY WANT, IF IT CONFLICTS WITH OUR NEEDS. HERE IS WHY AND HOW MARKELL CAN OVER-RIDE WHAT BAD DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATORS DO.  Keep in mind that those bad guys and bad ladies mentioned above do not support Jack Markell. That means that since they do not support MARKELL, HE OWES THEM NOTHING.  That means that Markell will make it very  difficult for the bad guys to continue their self-serving antics.  He will have won the election without their help, in fact, they wanted to hurt him…so, Jack will make sure they don’t get to exercise their under-handed wheeling and dealing.  Trust me.

MAYBE WE CAN’T STOP ADAMS, McDOWELL, BLEVINS, DELUCA, VENABLES,  MARSHALL, AND COOKE FROM GETTING RE-ELECTED; BUT WE SURE AS HELL CAN REDUCE THEIR POWER, AND REDUCE THEIR ABILITY TO CONTROL THE LEGISLATURE.  GOVERNORS HAVE THE POWER TO CURB AND DECREASE WHAT BAD LEGISLATORS CAN GET AWAY WITH. 

JACK MARKELL WILL CHANGE THINGS, ONCE HE IS GOVERNOR—BUT HE CANNOT BECOME GOVERNOR WITHOUT YOU.

WOULDN’T YOU JUST LOVE TO HAVE A STATE GOVERNMENT FUNCTIONING  WITH THE SAME ETHICS, AND WITH THE SAME IDEALS AND PRINCIPLES AS KAREN PETERSON AND PETE SCHWARTZKOPF?  Well,YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN BY VOTING FOR JACK MARKELL, WHO IS JUST LIKE PETERSON AND SWARTZKOPH. 

What do you think?

  1. What I Think Says:

    What do I think? I think that you must be out of the loop, Gerry, because Swartzkopf is down in Sussex working feverishly to get JOHN ADKINS elected representative in the 41st District.

    Gool Ol Boy Swartzkopf was on WGMD talking about how Johnny Boy is a “good guy” and that “he’s changed.” He even donated the max to Adkins campaign.

    The word is that Pete’s selling us all out so he can be Majority Leader. Ethics schmethics, Swartzkopf is in it for himself, to Hell with the rest of us.

  2. Gerry Fulcher Says:

    SORRY, GUY, BUT I DISAGREE…..I have followed Pete for several years:
    in favor of needle program which saves lives…in favor of higher minimum wage, so people can survive……in favor of open government bill……in favor of the Inspector General polistion to deal with waste, fraud and corruption…..
    I have spoken to John Atkins…and I BELIEVE THAT ATKINS HAS CHANGED…OR SHOULD WE NEVER GIVE PEOPLE WHO HAVE IMPROVED THEMSELVES AND CHANTED THEIR BEHAVIOR A SECOND CHANCE?
    Everbody in the world acts out of some degree of self interest…it’s called human nature…..don’t you act of self interest….what’s wrong with wanting to be party leader, if that’s what pete wants….what’s wrong with that>
    No one has been tougher on ATkins and ME and Pete…Both of us agree that he did very stupid things…paid the price of embarrassment and dismissal. I have personally spoken to Atkins about 10 times in the last three months.
    He has many signs of correcting himself….so why not give him a chance to prove it?….has Atkins done anything you know of which proves he hasn’t changed? Pete opposes his own party about who should be govenor….or would you prefer that he joins the old-guard do-nothings who don’t want to change a thing?….
