When you DIG ONE DITCH, you better DIGG TWO!

That’s what my grandma Allen use to always say….

And in a Primary upset, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (REP) lost in a GOP Primary to a Tea Party Challenger on Tuesday. Cantor announced that he would be stepping down as House Majority Leader in the next month and now conservatives are scrambling to replace him.

Many say Cantor thought he was too much of a big shot in Washington to return to his home state of Virginia to campaign against Dave Brat, an economics professor. Critics say he neglected his home base and paid a price.

Cantor was the same house representative who loathed President Barack Obama, screaming “You Lie” in one of Obama’s state of the Union address. He openly envied the President and set out with the rest of his republican cohorts to stop the President in his tracks.

Cantor is the first sitting House Majority leader to lose in a primary election in the history of American politics.

The defeat sent a strong signal to Washington that Americans are fed up with Washington’s politics β€” particularly on immigration reform.

Cantor spent $5 million on his losing campaign, while Dave Brat spent just $100,000 to defeat the House Majority leader stating; “Dollars don’t vote, people do”.

    1. they wouldn’t extend jobless benefits to the long-term unemployed
    2. they waged a war on the poor
    3. they’ve turned their backs on immigration reform
    4. they refuse to raise minimum wage

    and the list goes on. so who’s next?

    It is interesting, when people truly think politicians are destroying this country. when the fact is, we the people are. we are the ones voting in people who won’t compromise with the other side and then we wonder why nothing gets passed.

    Thanks 7th district in Virginia. You voted out a guy that will probably work with Democrats 10% of the time and you are about to vote in a guy who will just say no. nothing says progress like the American Government at a stand still.
