"The consistency garbage is a load of crap Finn. If you were the manager of a baseball team and your pitcher was getting shelled, would you still leave him in there for "consistency"? Hell no."
Hell joe, the Dems are the poster boys for consistency. Staying with the same failed "pitch" and consistently losing in every national and most statehouse elections in this decade.
Perhaps you should so inform the DNC.
Atually, I'm not a democrat, I'm a thinker and I vote both ways, I'm more of a Republican with my ideology, just not a radical extremist like the Bushies. The one thing I DESPISE in politics is abuse of power, no matter which side it comes from. I was part of a group which led to the ousting of our state Speaker of the House, a democrat. There were a LOT of republicans in the effort who were against him just because he was a democrat, I was not against him because he was from another viewpoint, but because he ABUSED power, same as Bush & his cronies.
We finally got the Feds to investegate his redistricting (sound familiar) to rid seats of his opposers. He finally resigned in leiu of a federal investegation and prosecution. I am going to fight against the Bush administration as well, as I believe they have abused their power EVERY step of the way. It's something I feel strongly about and I am not going to change my train of thought just because of the public opinion.
Hell, probably only 1/10 people in the US actually knows what politics is about and how it works, it's not like everyone is informed, it's just the opposite. It isn't reality that matter, just the perception of reality and it's truly a sad day for democracy.
Moral values were the thing people were concerned about? we are at war, running deficits, and giving government money away to corporate intrest, yet people say moral values matter to them. It just goes to show you the rest of the country doesn't have a clue.
