We hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way?”
IS IT TRUE we are told that since former Mayor Winezapfel opted out a run for the United States 8th District Congressman it has marshaled in a new era in the Vanderburgh County Democratic party politics? …for over 6 plus years, the local Democratic party was rendered dormant because of a major party split in the party? …when Weinzapfel and some Democrats loyal to him bolted the local Democratic party and supported Lloyd Winnecke for Mayor instead of Rick Davis caused the split? …because of this split over the last 6 plus years, the local Democratic party was less than effective? …Democratic party fundraising efforts were unsuccessful and the monthly lease payments were many months in arrears with no funds to bring it current? …the local Republican party dominated every local election since the Democratic party split? ..we are told by many loyal Democratic party workers that they are extremely excited to see a new political torchbearer for the Vanderburgh County Democratic party to come forward? …he is none other than party Chairman Scott Danks? …Mr. Danks is extremely outspoken. aggressive, likable, trustworthy, one heck of a fundraiser and extremely partisan? …we predict that that Sheriff Dave Wedding, County Commissioner Ben Shoulders, and State Representative Ryan Hatfield are also going to be asked to play a major role in helping Mr. Dank to rebuild the once proud and powerful Democratic party of Vanderburgh County? ..this move is 6 years in the making?
IS IT TRUE last week “Hoosiers For Rokita” made some negative statements about Mike Braun and Luke Messer after they filed for the United States Senate seat? … the negative statements made towards United States Senatorial candidates Mike Braum and Luke Messer was considered by many Indiana Republicans as an act of desperation by the members of the “Hoosiers For Rokita”? …we are told by credible sources that members of the “Hoosiers For Rokita” group better get ready for a direct response from Mike Braum and Luke Messer campaigns concerning the comments published about them last week? …we are told what the “Hoosiers For Rokita” said about Mr. Braum and Mr. Messer could cause split within the State Republican party?…we consider all three Republican primary candidates for the United States Senate are equally qualified and we hope that future campaigning for this office will be focused on the issues and not negative attacks on one another?
IS IT TRUE a reality check is when socialist college students are sent to a county that closely resembles their desired political system and left to survive for a few months? …after two days they call home and ask for money to take a plane back to the good ole USA?
