Jackson County Future: Freedom, Inc. Controls The Courthouse Now

As we reported previously . . . Now confirmed . . .

Freedom, Inc. accomplished an EPIC showing in this election and their slate of candidate victories is one of the most impressive we've witnessed in more than a decade. 

What's weird is that KC media hasn't mentioned it very much.

The basics . . .

Freedom, Inc. backed candidates now hold a majority on the Legislature. People of color now dominate this legislative body in a county that's still majority white. Reality check: "Post-racial America" is a term that was disputed by both the left & right but this local election result is probably an important sign that it's happening right before our eyes.

Reality . . . The sweep is historic but the urban political power move doesn't really fit the progressive narrative and that's probably why it hasn't yet garnered a lot of mention . . . But it should. 

Sure our blog community predicted this MONTHS AGO  . . . But now it's news fact. 

Take a peek . . .
