Argh! Can I Light a Fire Under Some Democratic Butt?
I am not just disappointed in Pelosi...I am really disappointed in the Democratic party as a whole. As I see it, they have been really apathetic or otherwise completely inept at taking action where the republicans run around doing whatever they want and taking away our civil liberties one chip at a time. And this coming election...what the hell? Right now, they have at least one more viable candidates than all of those on the democrats side. There is just no way middle America is voting for Barack Hussein "Osama" (as the news media keeps accidentally calling him) or for a woman who many so called liberal voters themselves don't even like. Why do the republicans always find actors and other people who know how to play to a crowd and talk to people and the democrats put up wooden people like Kerry? Lets stop dreaming that everyone in the country is so freaking open-minded and will elect pretty-boy Edwards, B**** Hillary (their words, not mine), or Muslim B.Osama with the wrong color skin. Lets get our heads out of the sand and figure out whats really important. Do we really want to risk the republicans getting into office again and pushing us further back toward Jim Crow days? We have people locked up in prisons indefinitely without having charged them with any crime. We have to have permission from the Federal Government (aka a passport) before we are allowed to leave the country. People are being encouraged to turn each other in (remain vigilant) and discriminate based on ethnicity and religion ("I won't go on that plane with him!") How far do we have to go before we are in a police state? And how close is to close? Lets put on the brakes now, while we can. Be active and speak your mind. Talk to people about what is happening offline and online.
