Michigan Democrats Are United As One by Akindele Akinyemi
I would like to take the time (and decency) to congratulate the Michigan Democratic Party for winning back the State House. I support many of our brothers and sisters on the other side of the aisle.
A HUGE congrats to One Detroit's Shanelle Jackson and Bert Johnson on winning their House Seats. I am heavily counting on them to help us with some bi-partisan legislation.
Another congrats to the Michigan Young Democrats and the Democratic State Central Committee for working hard on your efforts to re-elect Jennifer Granholm.
Speaking of such, I would like to congratulate Jennifer Granholm on winning another term for Governor. That is as far as I am going to go with her because of her piss poor stance on educational options and until she begins to see the light on the full potential on educational choice she will not get my support ever.
I would like to take the time to thank Saul Anuzis, who led the Michigan Republican Party like the Army. We conducted the most sophisticated campaign ever. On this journey, we build alliances like never before and our One Detroit Network soared.
Dick DeVos is still our candidate. Any person who is supporting educational choices for parents and children deserves to be elected. Same with Mike Bouchard. Both ran their campaigns professionally and proficiently.
But I am pissed of how Dick DeVos was at the Detroit Victory Center with BLACK people and Channel 2, 4, and 7 covered it but did not PUT this on ANY broadcast at 6 and 11 PM. People were desperate to have Jennifer Granholm re-elected. Not one time they thought about how Black people have been abused by the dsemocratic system of government.
Last but not least, The One Detroit Network is NOT dead like many want us to. We are known now and will grow even bigger in the next six months. We have a lot of candidates to train for office on both sides of the aisle. More importantly, we are preparing to sit down and reorganize our strategy within our network.
Democrats, enjoy the moment because the minute you come out against educational choice we will be on your asses like white on rice.
