Recently had a discussion with a person holding an elected office. This person has made a decision which makes his re-election about as likely as me being elected to replace him.

Knowing this, he said he was pondering resigning. He asked my opinion.

On one hand, I do think he's no longer suited for the elected post he hold because of the decision he made. His decision is not illegal, immoral, unjust, unethical, etc etc etc. It's just a decision he made, one which a lot of people would make if they had the ability to follow through like he does.

But. The majority of me came down on the other side.

 Forget about the expense of having a special election.

In running for election, this man promised the voters of his district he would serve in that office. He made them a promise. He owes them and should stay in office until the end of his term or something prevents him from completely the term in office.



He made a promise.

Severe illness, involuntary move taking him out of his district, death, criminal charges are reasons I can accept for stepping down mid-term. Probably are a few more, but those came to immediate mind.

Too many elected politicians up and quit office because they get mad. Reboobican Reprehensible Newt Gingrich is prime example of this. He resigned, after winning the election, when the US House majority went to the Damnocrats. The people of his district elected him to represent them. He chose not to because his feelings got hurt.

He broke his promise. He lied.

And yet, a number of people voted for him to become the next president.

Now Reboobican US Sinator Jim DeMint is resigning mid term to take a job with a Cantservative brain trust in Washington.

Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar.

Get the idea?


Reboobican Georgia State Sinator Chip Rogers has also resigned to take a job with Georgia Public Broadcasting. And just when I was prepared to admit GPB was beginning to turn for the better.

Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar.

Get the idea?
Of course in Rogers case, resigning to go to work for a notoriously liberal media outlet (much more so than National Public Radio), makes some sense. The man is an idiot. The Georgia Republican leader who organized an October lecture for GOP lawmakers in which a birther activist said that President Barack Obama and the United Nations are using "mind-control" to implement a sustainability agenda is resigning from the state Senate.

Running for office is a commitment for the term of office and a promise to every person in the district represented from the entire nation (president) to a City Council member in the smallest town.

Break that promise and you prove you are not worthy of holding office and should be thrown out.
