For many years the argument was between Democrats and Republicans, or so they would have you believe. Now the arguments are getting spread-out over a range of ideas and ideologies. This is how I see the breakdown as of 1/25/2010…
- Republican (someone claims they are GOP, but clueless why)
- Neo-Con Republican
- Left of center Republican
- Moderate Republican
- RINO (this is a liberal Republican)
Then you have an altogether new catagory that is much closer to Republican than Democrat, they proudly call themselves the Tea-Party Movement. These folks are in general very Conservative and very pro-Constitution and pro-traditional American!
Now for the other side…
- Democrat (someone claims they are Dem, but clueless why)
- Moderate Democrat (this is what most would call a Blue Dog Dem or a traditional Democrat)
- Left of center Democrat
- Liberal Democrat
- Progressive Democrat
Ok, it’s this last list that I want to talk about, and for once I want to talk to Democrats, especially the traditional Democrats or what people call Blue Dog Democrats…
You Blue Dogs are the largest group under the Democrat banner which means as citizens, you have the majority of the votes. Plus, most of the time you can make a good enough argument that you would get the Left of Center Democrat to vote with you. The Left of Center no longer holds much sway or power in your party. The sad news is… Liberals and Progressives are letting the Progressive/Marxists call the shots where it does the most damage, in the House, Senate, and White House.
My question to you is… do you still believe in the America that your parents and grandparents believed in? And are you willing to admit that the Progressive/Marxists (PM’s) are making bold moves to simply take-over your party? If you answered YES, to both of those questions then your party is in serious trouble.
For the sake of the country we dearly love, I would like to ask you to think long and hard about how the PM’s have hi-jacked your once honorable party. I’m NOT asking you to join the GOP, but I will ask you to consider what the Tea-Party movement has been all about. We do NOT speak for the GOP, and the GOP most definately does NOT speak for us. Together, I believe we can save this country. Divided only quickens the end of the USA that we know and love.
We can still have our small differences which can be worked-out by the courts via our grand Constitution, but we must stand together to rid ourselves of the crushing march towards Marxism. Once Marxism takes hold there is only one way to shake free of it, and unfortunately that will require an awful lot of good American blood being spilled.
God Bless America.
Lo and behold, a few minutes spent on the Huffington Post finds someone that agrees with my assesment…
I agree and this is what I like to see! However, I believe Obama has allowed the blue dogs to short circuit his vision–and they have done a terrible disservice to the unity of the party, and message cohesiveness.
I live in Montana, I personally do not approve of how Sen. Baucus has tried to undermine the President with his view of this stupid health insurance bill, which he is blatantly doling out future customers to the health insurance industry through the mandate. This is going to kill the minority, working poor and middle class standard of life. People are afraid to rock the boat so to speak, and they don’t want to make an issue of this.
President Obama needs to distance himself from the people toxic to the agenda. This is not longer a viable effort: the only ones screaming for its passage are those funded by big insurance. By putting Obama in this position, the blue dogs have fractured the party. Mass. is a good example. My first thought was exactly what you just voiced–it will be a sign of things to come this fall. The Blue DOGS need to get the H * L L out of the way!
