I think it is fair to tell people considering a move here that the political party of the owners is Republican and they are large contributors to the Republican party. The paper that they own has a decidedly Republican bent, slant, bias, you choose the words.

Before elections and at other times too, there are speakers and book signings by Republicans such as George Bush, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, etc. This is given a lot of coverage in the paper and a LOT of people attend these functions at the squares. President Bush has been a guest in the Morse home.

The Democratic nominees and speakers are not afforded much of a welcome from the developers.

I read that the split is 60-40 but it feels to me more like 70-30. Out of ten homes on our street, neighbors nearby I would wager that 8 out of 10 vote Republican. There is a large silent bunch of moderate Republicans and a lot of vocal Tea Party people.

I hope I continue always to have friends on both sides of the aisle.
