The future of South Carolina is important, so we must look forward to the elections of 2014. We must change some of the politicians we have sent to Washington.
Rep. Jim Clyburn and Sen. Lindsey Graham are Washington insiders who have little interest in South Carolina. They have only their own political career interests to guide them. Nancy Pelosi and John McCain have more to do with their decisions than the people of South Carolina.
It is good to see that we do have some candidates willing to speak out about these issues. We also need to understand that the DNC and the RNC will put all the money they can into this state to maintain the status quo. It is sad that only Trey Gowdy has the statewide exposure to defeat Graham.
This is where the money becomes so important. We must understand that a third of all voters are uninformed and blindly vote for a political party, not the best candidate. South Carolina must quit being a dependency state. It must move in the direction of Texas as a growing industrious state.
To do this we must have more political leaders like Nikki Haley, who is willing to recruit jobs and reform our educational system. We need news media that fairly report and inform the people allowing them to make good decisions when they go to the polls.
