I want this guy to be MY Congressman, MP, Senator, Councillor – whatever.

In Michigan, the Republican-controlled legislature succeeded in passing a new “right-to-work” law, which weakens unions’ ability to negotiate and has serious negative implications for all workers in the state. They had no public meetings, no debate, no time for review, and most offensively had Republican staffers sit in seats in the gallery to block interested citizens from even being in the room to hear about it.

So this guy decided to say something about that.

Whatever your view of the legislation, (and I think it stinks), don’t you just ache to have someone representing you who speaks from the heart like this, eschewing all the weasel words and obfuscations?

This man will go far. Brandon Dillon, Democrat, Grand Rapids. Remember the name.

If you want to tell him what you think, try tweeting with the hashtag #brandondillonrocks, or tweet him direct @brandondillon75.

    Yes, Mr. Smith lives. He’s pretty thin on the ground (well, he was then too, or the movie wouldn’t have been noteworthy), but he does live. Thank God. You might like this also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tD71K6BZYo
    None of it, unfortunately, prevented the state from passing a trifecta of shame: the Right to Work, the Abortion Omnibus, and the Emergency Manager bills. The last was repealed, under a different name, by the voters of the State just this November. You won’t find a much clearer case of legislators deliberately and knowingly screwing the people who put them into office.
