Really, that’s what they think Gene Chandler should do as NH Speaker?

of the Constitution?This caught my eye from Steve’s post where a number of Establishment Republicans lined up to support the man with “our Republican values and Constitution tattooed on his chest” that espouses that anyone with an R next to their name makes them SPECTACULAR (You know, the ones that went ALL IN for their handpicked candidates at the top of the ticket earlier this month):

“We have all worked with Gene over the years and know that he will listen carefully to all members of the Republican caucus and will put you first,” the letter said.

Funny, that’s not my take and what happens when our First Principles are ignored – I want the Speaker to put something else first:

The primary purpose of the Speaker is not to listen to people, it is to listen to the dictates of the Constitutions and Platform so as not to violate those precepts.  Actually, it isn’t just the Speaker that should be doing this – ALL elected officials should be acting in such a manner, but the Speaker is the “last cop on the beat” in this regard.

It when our politicians ignore it that we no longer have a limited government.  And that, my friends, is the root of many of our problems today (after, how are things workin’ out fer us right now given we have ignored it for so long?).  Yes, we have to listen – but that is not the first priority.
