Well it seems as if Kari Chisholm, described by The Oregonian as a "consultant" in endless articles but described as a "political hack" on his own website, has discovered Ron Saxton's extreme positions. Yes, that's right, EXTREME.
Kari hasn't been this excited since he found a Snickers bar in his pocket. It seems that Saxton's website is being updated, something that websites never do, but Kari has used to power of Google cache to discover what was on there during the primary.
Here is Chisholm's post, I'd comment but he banned me from BlueOregon.
Let's examine these EXTREME positions:
Control State Spending and Taxes
I'm not sure what Ron was thinking. This will never fly in the general election. Oregonians have proved serveral times in the last few years that they are for higher taxes and more wasteful spending. Oh wait...
Promote Job Creation and Economic Development
I can't believe that Ron went so far to the right as to say this. In the history of our country no politician running for office has said anything remotely like this.
Improve Oregon 's Education Performance
This is absolutely unacceptable. What kind of right-wing nutjob wants to improve education performance?
Promote Responsibility in our Public Policy
Under this heading we have such bullet points like:
In a Saxton Administration there will be zero tolerance for sexual predators and drug dealers.
In a Saxton administration, Oregon will stop issuing drivers' licenses to illegal immigrants and we will enforce the law.
I'm sure that the general election voters will thoroughly dissaprove.
