"The 7th District has suffered because of the animosity that exists between the (district's) delegation and state government," said Redmer, referring to the reputations of Harris and Del. Pat McDonough, who are known for being solid "no" votes on bills favored by Democrats.""It's not about the votes but about the tones in which those votes are cast," Redmer said."
This is one of the most illuminating comments from a candidate that I have seen of all the national and local candidates that I have covered. Redmer is complaining that these comments are being taken out of context by the Jennings campaign. However, his remarks reveal to us one thing in any context. He is not down for the struggle against socialism. His comments represent the very essence of why conservatives are so outraged at the Republican Party. It's not just the RINO's who are destroying the party. I would never assert that Redmer is a Republican in name only. Rather, the problem is that they have a lack of insight into our political enemies and therefore are lacking the passion, conviction, and devotion to fight them at every turn. They might vote with the conservatives 90% of the time, but their ultimate goal will be to engage and cooperate with the enemy. Keep in mind that every single Republican in Washington voted against Obamacare. However, Mitch McConnell and the other Republican members of the governing class failed to object to all of the complex and simple unanimous consent agreements (UCA’s) and use other dilatory parliamentary tactics to obstruct this unconstitutional legislation. They didn’t want to undermine the collegial Senate decorum, even at the expense of undermining our freedom, prosperity, and property rights.
The same thing occurs in the senate of a state legislature. There are a lot of adversarial obstructionist tools that are at the desposal of the minority party in the upper chamber. We need our Republicans in Annapolis to be commited to obstructing the unconstitutional agenda of Mike Miller with the same power that he uses to pass this agenda. How many Marylanders (Republicans and Democrats) really believe that the problem in Annapolis is that the Republicans aren't aggressive enough in fighting the statist agenda? These comments are wholly out of touch with reality and provide us with an authoritative glimpse as to what sort of state Senator Mr. Redmer would be. Redmer is correct about one thing;”it’s not about the votes”. When you are in the minority, it is not good enough merely to vote against the legislation, you must defeat it at all costs.
