The out of control disease that is flat-out endangering our nation and traditional values is created and spread by those in our political system who purposely and continuously place themselves above that which is in the best interest of the American people. On the Republican side, this reckless and self-indulgent behavior is on full display with the actions of Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele and Florida Governor Charlie Crist.
Like many in politics and most in Washington, Michael Steele and Charlie Crist are all about themselves. With his just released -- and secret from the party -- ego-centric book combined with his comment that those who dare to question his authority need to, â€œâ€¦shut up. Get with the program or get out of the way,â€ Steele has hopefully finally exposed himself to the GOP elite as someone who needs to be forced out or marginalized.
