This morning with the two youngest I voted, my husband voted a bit earlier before taking the two oldest to school. We must of interested the election workers since we took differing ballots.
I couldn’t vote for Ed O’Reilly, since he was more progressive then Kerry, so I did pick up a Republican ballot and wrote in John Lambert’s name and voted for Beatty.
Sigh… I notice there was another post here at Red Mass Group that a local GOP group was in ‘shambles’, but looking at the local democratic ballot online couldn’t we say the same for them? There was only one contested primary, and it has been the first for Sen. Kerry since he first was elected. Massachusetts Democrats are exciting as Joe Biden.
As a state we’re dead.
Look at our local birth rates.
Utah has the highest birth rate in the nation and the Amish have doubled their population in 15 years, in time we will have one or the other for President.
There was an interest comment section online at the “New American
From the party that gave us FDR, Truman, JFK and even, yes, LBJ, the Democrats have gone through a process of gradual but inexorable devolution to the party of such weak, tepid and compromised souls as Carter, Clinton, Kerry, and now Obama – the ultimate bargainer, the race hustler with an Ivy League sheepskin. But these chestless men the Party puts up are only the shadows cast by the compromises it has made within itself. It has made many compromises over the years, taken in many “causes” each one more dubious and rotten than the last.
As a result of this unremitting ideological promiscuity, the “progressive” party has become progressively more diseased from each submissive encounter. The gangrene that has rotted the body of the party has transformed it into some transnational Dorian Gray. Strutting and noble and handsome when preening before the cameras and the crowds, but putrid and pestilential when you see it as it is in the dull light of its polluted “new morning.”
From the comment section is a MUST READ of multiple former Democrats. I would be copying and pasting all day long but here is one.
From the comment section
“I’m a Democrat whose mother was a big wig the Democratic Womens Club in Austin, Texas for nearly a decade and whose father worked for LBJ for many years.They were hard line conservatives until the seventies and there was a decided swing left. I believe Viet Nam left such a bad taste in our mouths that it fueled the swing left. Hell, I was leading the charge. We became socialists no doubt about it. We tried to tear down every value system existing. It was going to be the Utopia it was supposed to be and we were using any method available to achieve it . We were perfecting vote fraud in amazingly simple ways. With the courts protecting our flank under the guise of disenfranchisement.
Then I began to see how rabid the hard liners were. Their agenda wasn’t dedicated to equality and justice, it was only about power. They were the epitome of Big Brother. Thought control and slavery to the system. I detested the religious book burners but they had nothing on the purge of intellectual thought my fellow Democrats were planning. It wasn’t the Conservatives who were so hate filled, it was us. Hating people who oppose or have the nerve to question them in any degree and vilify every action of those they deem to be heretic.
They have a totalitarian agenda and have undermined our rights, creating a fascist state inside the Democratic Party and the state at large. I voted for Bill Clinton believing he would bring change. He did, now moderate voices are shouted down within the party and the courts are the new political battleground. Starting with the Florida vote tragedy. Yes, tragedy. It was a tragedy that Gore tried an end run around the law and attacking the Supreme Court once they said to obey the law. That episode probably hurt the nation as much as 9/11. Maybe more. Then the whining over “What the eeeevil Republicans have done to our rights. If anything the Republicans have been complicit with the Clintons in turning a blind eye to the skulduggery of the Democrats and not standing up to them.
Clinton signed a slew of “Executive Orders” that undermined the bill of rights. His justice department sent federal officers and soldiers to execute an illegal warrant and siege in Waco that resulted in nearly 90 people dead. Using tactics that are decried in the capitol as torture today. The majority were children, burned to death in a suspect fire. Janet Reno killed more children than McVeigh and he got the needle. Ann Richards was governor at the time and not a peep of recrimination came from her office. What was worse, my fellow Democrats did NOTHING. I was told to shut up by my fellow party members, don’t make a fuss over a few loonies. I hated Bush 41 for his heavy handed FBI and when the Feds continued kicking in our doors and killing women and children after Bill Clinton’s election my opinion of him changed. He never did enough about Jihadis blowing up our citizens but he was hell on Christian separatists.
Then my party nominated Al Gore, He’s the real moron. He has a high school education and some college. Flunked out twice. Pathological Liar. Raised in a household and elitist society of rabid racists. Hung with the gear in the rear in the Army. He would have been in a lot more danger if he served in Detroit or East St Louis.
Then John Kerry in a spectacle of irony that melted rational thought. Again their disbelief at not winning when their voting fraud skulduggery failed.
And now the savaging of the Palin family and excusing it with “Well if she didn’t want them attacked she shouldn’t have run”
So is that what it’s been reduced to now?
I was taught to stand up to bullies. Isn’t that something Joe Biden bragged about.
Now he promotes the bullies.
So here I am with my eyes open and without the representation I felt I once had. The money people behind the party are dangerous. Wolves in sheep’s clothing. Their way or the highway. No dissent permitted.
That’s how I feel too.
