I was perusing my Facebook feed tonight when I came across this post from former Clay Countian Christopher Till. I think it speaks for itself with little comment needed.

“I’ve always been proud of my service and my service in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

However, when Speaker Boehner came out and wanted the House of Representatives to vote for action in Syria, essentially becoming the Air Force of the group who tried to kill American Soldiers (to include myself and members of my company) in Iraq and has links to Al Qaeda, I felt that my year in Iraq was served in vain. I felt that one of my best friends from Basic Training, who was killed in Iraq, died in vain. And that is no feeling any veteran or soldier should ever have.

I am constantly told “Thank You for Your Service.” I did my service and I’m proud. If you want to thank me, thank my brothers and sisters in arms, honor my fallen friends, CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE and tell them that siding and supplying arms and our Navy and Air Force to people who fought against us is not the best way to thank and honor our veterans and soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

There is NO good reason to go into Syria. There is absolutely NO geopolitical advantage to an attack on Syria. I genuinely believe that if our Congress declares war on Syria, the American people, good and decent Republicans, Democrats, liberals, and conservatives should declare war (figuratively speaking) on our Senators and Congressman.

And for the record, and for those of you who still continue to fight this stupid Republican versus Democrat political game, I did NOT support the war in Iraq. It served no geopolitical advantage either and destabilized the balance of power in the region between Iran and Iraq. The problem with Progressives, Democrats and Republicans, is all they do is screw up the world. Bush made a mess, and if the Congress allows it, this one will create even bigger problems.

H/T to the Liberty Tribune.

Eastern Commissioner Katee Porter and Western Commissioner Larry Larson are running for reelection.

It appears that Larson will have a primary and will face former western commissioner Gene Owen and David R. Peironnet.

County Assessor has five candidates interestingly Tom Brandom will be challenging Cathy Rinehart. That should be interesting and I wish Mr. Brandom luck. This county will not miss Ms. Rinehart if she is defeated. Republican Assessor candidates include Phil Wilson, Donald Jobe and Jesse Leimkuehler. I have never heard of any of these gentleman.

Clay County Auditor Sheila Ernzen will face off against Michael Till. Mr. Till is the father of Clay County Young Republican President Christopher Till. The county will do well by either one of these candidates.

Democratic Sheriff Bob Boydston will face a primary challenge as well from Bob Neal. On the Republican ticket will be former Sheriff Paul Vescovo.

Treasurer Carol McCaslin and Public Administrator Debbie Gwin are both seeking reelection.

The biggest take away from all this. What’s with the Democrats? It’s like primary city against incumbents.
