The commissioners race has sorted out in Elbert County. Limited-government people support the Richardson/Wills pair. Pro-government-action people support the Whistler/Thayer pair.
I haven’t seen any exceptions to this sort.
The ballots are out, and the county, at-large, gets to vote on all commissioner districts, notwithstanding in which commissioner district a voter resides.
This is all on the Republican primary ticket, which effectively constitutes a general election in Elbert County.
The limited-government cohort seem quite willing to discuss issues and philosophies. The pro-government-action cohort, not so much. They express discomfort with rebuttals to their belief system in a variety of collateral ways that shut down further discussion – crybullying, shunning, mau mauing, innuendo, and various character assassinations.
The pro-government-action people seem conflicted and upset at having to defend their chosen positions. I expect that they learned their positions when they were young, and instead of moving on in adulthood, they found a political home that liked them just the way they were.
I know that the above analysis will infuriate the pro-government-action people, and I take no pleasure in having to deliver the message. But tantrums are no way to run a county. It’s past time mature voters stood up to the crybullies.
