Insulting to call Anderson County Council leaders Republican

It is hard to be a conservative Republican in Anderson County. After years of standing up against the big liberal government ways of the previous County Council and Administrator we now have to live with the current Council spending hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on a political witch hunt that , four months after it was promised, did not produce results.

That, folks, is typical big government. We conservatives have faced such empty promises before. Liberals tells us that they can spend our tax money better and give us justice or whatever else we desire. Yet, when it comes time to truly deliver, liberals, including the so called Republicans who run Anderson County Council, tell us just wait a bit. They tell us some other characters are to blame. They tell us to wait and see.

While we conservatives wait and see, the bills for the investigations keep adding up. The invoices are billed to the taxpayers of Anderson County. So while those so called Republican leaders in Anderson County try to grab headlines as being true conservative Republicans, the public bill of their investigation into old political foes keeps adding up. Thus, wait and see has become add it up. As such, Anderson County Council looks more like old time Southern Democrats spending taxpayer money going after old political enemies than true Republican reformers worried about reforming county government and creating jobs. (One wonders where some of the re-election contributions of the current council will come from?)

Months ago, VUI called for SLED and the SC Attorney General to look at what possible improprieties happened in Anderson County government. VUI still stands by that. Though VUI has gained both statewide and national attention of late, we cannot ignore the fact that big government poses as Republican in our backyard.

When a county such as Anderson is facing harsh economic realities and job losses, and when it faces real budget shortfalls, it is unbelievable that the so called conservatives who supposedly lead the county would spend hundreds of thousands on getting even with their past political enemies. Just when Anderson County needs a united voice to get jobs for its people, our so called conservative council takes the liberal approach and spends public money going after old political enemies. When their own deadline passes, they write more checks at our expense.

It is a stark truth that the current Anderson County Council, for whatever reason, has chosen to spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer money on high powered attorneys, accountants and investigators to look at their predecessors and the previous administration. To traditional conservatives, such is abhorrent. Yet, the invoices keep adding up.

Unfortunately, it appears the jobs do not meet the matching invoices. Just last week, Honea Path lost 60 high paying manufacturing jobs. Previously, Williamston lost over a 100 such jobs. Such seems not to matter. It seems we in Anderson County have replaced one group of self centered politicians with another set of the same.

Perhaps the people want the current Anderson County Council in place. That is their right. But, please, for those of us who understand the definition of conservative and Republican, please don’t give those members of County Council acting like liberal Democrats with their public spending witch hunt those titles. It is insulting.

  9. I will be there. You won't have to go looking for me. I wonder if you will have a name later tonight. I am here, standing up for my true party and my state and country.

    Wear your adult diapers. It will help you when I show up.

  10. I don't agree with your assessment, but that's your opinion. Go back and look at what the prior admin spent on lawyers. The new council has spent about half. And they cut about 8 million dollars from the "bare bones" budget.

    You have fallen into the trap the former admin wants. I agree, Eddie Moore should have kept his mouth shut about when the report would be coming out. He hurt himself and the council with his political neophite ways. He is learning and will learn more as time goes by.

    Anyway, I doubt anyone on this blog (besides me) will even be there tonight. You won't be attacked for your opinion. You may be questioned, but no one will attack you. I guarantee it.
