The Democratic Party has started already with the calling for donations. I know I’m going to get a whole lot more calls in the coming months as we get closer and closer to E-day. So are you most likely.
I have decided that I am not going to give to anybody that calls themselves a Democrat. Why? Because they are complicit in the criminal/psychotic situation we find ourselves in presently. Whether it’s our illegal, immoral occupation of a soverign, oil-rich nation half-way around the world that is causing thousands of deaths and dismemberments of our own people (not to mention the innocent Iraqi population) or our own home-grown hijacking of the US Constitution by the insane criminal neocons who call themselves Republicans – the Democrats are not doing everything they could be doing… everything they should be doing to change things.
Okay they didn’t have the votes to override the veto of the troop withdrawl bill… but they could have fillibustered if they really wanted to get the job done.
They may not have all the votes necessary to impeach Bush, Cheney and Gonzales (yeah! all at the same time! that’s what I’m talking about!) – but they could put the proposal up for consideration and see what kind of response they get… get the dialogue started – a motion of historic proportions.
That’s the kind of stuff that would send a message to me, my fellow Americans and the rest of the world that the Democrats are serious about fixing the problems we face instead of just giving us lip service.
So, when the DSCC or a Democratic campaign calls me for a donation I say something like, “NO. I will not give you any money until you start impeaching the criminals in the White House that are ruining our country and destroying its reputation. Get on the ball!” or “NO. If you are going to continue to roll over for this adminstration on issues like our illegal occupation of Iraq, you will get nothing out of me. Shape up and start getting this thing done: Bring Home Our Troops NOW!”
