With Republicans Like These Why Vote Republican?

A Republican Party endorsement is not necessarily the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. The San Bernardino County Party chair does exclaim the need to elect local Republicans to city councils and as members of the County Board of Supervisors, but after the previous election I am starting to question the need or why to vote for these individuals if many of them are behaving badly to their local constituents.

We have council members in Fontana and Upland forcing development plans that many of its residents do not want to see happen such as stacking thousands of apartments in massive clusters. We have the mayor of Rancho Cucamonga Dennis Michael also praising these utopian sustainable development policies such as removing car lanes so people can bicycle even though many of us may be living 10-20 miles from our workplace and Omnitrans does not have 24-hour service and not as frequent as the Los Angeles Metro system to justify replacing cars with mass transit. Also I understand that local officials have to have amicable relations with higher office elected, but at least don’t gush like a school girl when it comes to your Democratic Party congress member.

If I wanted politicians who wanted stack and pack apartment housing or sustainable development initiatives, I would vote for an actual progressive Democrat and not a Republican who claims to be a conservative.
