Roy Moore won Alabama's U.S. Senate primary, overcoming millions of dollars in negative ads and fighting against the Republican party establishment. If you recall, Moore is known at the 10 Commandment's judge. He put a monument of the 10 commandments in his state capitol building but after a long legal battle, the monument was removed and he was booted out of office. This primary victory for Moore is important because it reaffirms that we have a government by the consent of the governed. And no amount of money (an estimated $30 million in this case) nor the party establishment failed to overcome the will of the voters. If Moore wins in the general election, he'll be the proverbial shot across the bow in Washington with the message that establishment politics is on the way out.
