I arose this morning and read the news on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the decision by the FBI not to prosecute (Read HERE).
I am not surprised, nor am I shocked yet the internet is exploding with shock, amazement and outrage. Maybe rightly so, maybe not. What I do know is this: Washington DC is broken. I’m not sure it can be fixed. I’m not sure it’s worth fixing. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating a mass exodus or a “non engagement” policy. As always, I am laser focused on Oregon. You see, I understand clearly that Oregon is actually salvageable. I believe that 2016 is the year that Republicans can take back at LEAST one state wide seat and at LEAST 3-4 Oregon House seats. With that, the cronyism and hypocrisy of the majority party in Oregon, who have reigned supreme for nearly 30 years now, can end.
I believe that Republicans in Oregon care more about ALL Oregonians, not just a few from certain areas that have agendas that are completely political and have very few benefits for the every day Oregonian. I am asking you to refocus your energy on OREGON elections. I know that Oregon doesn’t get much coverage (you’ll have to give up Fox, CNN, MSNBC etc) and dig a little deeper. Use social media, Facebook, Twitter and blog sites. Google “Oregon Politics”….yes it means work. You won’t just switch on the TV and find what you need to know. But then again shouldn’t this be a little bit more like work?
I am asking you to go beyond just watching the news and angrily shaking your fist at the air! I’m asking you to become engaged….active and a part of the process. If you want to do more, please consider my proposal below and feel free to share it on ALL social media!
