Senate 2010

With the Florida primary (yawn) behind us, it looks like we’ll have a “race” between Governor Charlie Crist (Republican), former Speaker of the Florida House Marco Rubio (Republican/Tea Party), and Representative Kenrick Meek (Democrat).  All are entrenched politicians, and I would underscore that all of them are part of the problem; not part of the solution.

However, Meek at least has some potential for change — after all; if nothing else his nomination as a candidate for US Senate marks a change for Florida — his election will drive a stake into the racial bigotry that stifles this state.

I would support Rubio had he made strong statement about the “out-of-control politicians” in Washington and the mounting deficit during the Bush administration (which did far more to damage the economy than the Obama administration has or could likely ever do) as well — he impresses me as just another politician who says what he thinks he needs to to further his (hidden) agenda.

I’ll vote for change; I’d prefer real change from a candidate that’s not part of the system, and thus part of the problem — but I’m realistic, I’ll take what I can get and hope to put us on the road for real change.

Kendrick Meek
