Well if your Times-Shamrock AKA The Scranton DemocRAT then "I Believe" there is a difference. According to their Wilkes-Barre publication The Citizens Voice, RepubliCANs don't stand a snowballs chance in Hell. Okay they were a little more tactful than that, but not much....
The headline: Analysts, history point to Republican losses in Wilkes-Barre mayor, council races
One has to wonder, on a National level, is there really much of a difference when it comes to the two party's? According to this graphic NO...
Do you even know what party you really belong to, and WHY?
Seriously just for fun take the QUIZ: Are you a Republican or a Democrat A quiz to tell you if you're a Republican or Democrat
Now when it comes to the local level, is there a difference? Well let's look at the City of Wilkes-Barre, it's been oh 40+ years since a Republican has been mayor, and the last Republican city councilman was in 1983. So I ask you is the city better or worse since 1983?
Well the debt was surely lower back then, and from the talk of the lifelong residents in all the Facebook Groups, the crime sure was a lot lower. So are we seeing a pattern or are we just so blinded by our hatred for National politics that we (Wilkes-Barre) are going to keep electing DemocRATs even if they are as crooked as Mayor Lie-A-Ton?
"The definition of insanity is repeating the same mistakes over and over again and expecting different results,"
