Meanwhile, Tea Party Conservatives are getting beaten up royally by greedy, unelected federal and UN Bureaucrats looking to push a Regionalism plan called Seven/50 (seven counties in 50 years) in an early November vote. The Treasure Coast, seven county region is awash with beautiful scenery, big bucks campaign donations and swing vote mathematics, but is also hooked to the Gore Triangle in the south which has already fallen to the UN Regionalism abomination.
“I’ll let some of my pets loose on them,” a gator trapper muttered after testifying against Seven/50 at a recent Martin County Commission meeting. He spoke eloquently for all of the homeowner protestors in the audience who will in no way agree to subsidized HUD housing. In backing the United Nations project the American left dishonors individual achievement and violates private property home and land rights.
Indian River County, the seventh county from Miami-Dade up along the ocean, roundly rejected the apparent “greased” land grab by unelected bureaucrats. Caught in the middle of the tectonic plates of Conservative Vero Beach to the north, hard core Gore Triangle people to the south, and some Rinoism in Martin County is the shifting landscape of St. Lucie County. “I beg you-get out of Seven/50. Do Not Destroy Our Freedom,” a political refugee from Ceausescu’s Romania told St. Lucie County Commissioners in September.
But the very liberal TC Palm print outlet’s political writer, an ex pat from Britain, excoriated area conservatives, only to make them madder. And one of the St. Lucie County Commissioners who took down words the Conservatives spoke as they testified against Seven/50 now must answer to an investigatory compendium filed with US Congressman Darrell Issa, Chairman of the US House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform by an independent journalist who is giving the Conservatives a voice they almost NEVER get in Treasure Coast media outlets.
So the beat goes on, the pot stirs, and SoFla politics mirror the misery of what the journalist’s compendium title called the “Unfairness in Government.” Will any politician, other than a small haloed few, “Listen to What the People Are Saying,” as the courageous oratory of Senator Ted Cruz so eloquently asks?
