There must be some out there who see the self self-destruct mode of the democratic party a clean slate to move the party into a different direction. Ever take a map and choose the scenic route only to get there 4 hours later. The democrats could do this, but, it might be a faster road if they heed the message this author has penned.
Already, the despicable Nancy Pelosi has announced that the democrats are going to use "the language of religion" to foist their horror-show candidates.
Statements like this still chap me. Where is the justice in taxing the producers to fund the lazy?
That is utterly retarded though. As a Catholic I can say that.
I realize that some people (mistakenly) view FDR as some sort of social folk hero but he was a horrible anti-Chatholic bigot who exploited these voters. The character of Mr. Potter (the villain) in Frank Capra's classic Christmas film It's a Wonderful Life was based on FDR.
I'm sorry, but only stupid Catholics remained in the Democratic fold after the 1960s and Roe vs. Wade. Catholic teaching does not mandate the kind of socialism that has been served up by Dems over the years.
History tells us the Dumbocrats are following in the footsteps of the mid-nineteenth century Know-Nothing Party which collapsed under the weight of its own obtuseness, and ceased to be a functioning political force. Like the Know-Nothings, Democrats will be relegated to the dustbin of history.
Even THIS guy doesn't get it.
"Economic and social justice" is a phrase they use to justify and demand redistribution of wealth. If you have more than me, they think it is "not fair" and must be "fixed" by taking yours and giving it to me. It is Communism at its core and, of course, a complete failure everywhere in the world it has been tried.
I believe if the scientists at NASA discovered a single cell organism floating at the bottom of a primordial pool under the Martian polar ice cap, they would proclaim "Life found on Mars!". How much more infinate is the miracle of humanity?
"I'm sorry, but only stupid Catholics remained in the Democratic fold after the 1960s and Roe vs. Wade. Catholic teaching does not mandate the kind of socialism that has been served up by Dems over the years."
Docility has been taught as a Catholic virtue. Unfortunately once the left captured the seminaries, the universities, the MSM and the schools (both government and parochial), that virtue led vast numbers of the faithful down the primrose path. The way was wide and easy. Only a remnant fought and still fight. But then, hasn't that always been the case?
This guy must have had a wild one last night.
But it's also true that children like our son are becoming extinct in part because the abortion lobby has a stranglehold on the Democratic Party platform, with all that it implies for legislation and judicial appointments. The easiest response to handicapped children is to kill them before they arrive. That's not a solution. That's homicide.
Just a curiosity, but is there another social movement in the last century or so that espoused the same views, and do these modern proponents of that movement understand the ramifications when they tell us it's the Republicans that are the modern incarnation of it?
The reason Democrats continue to slide is a simple one. They are the party of personal irresponsibility. The extremes of zero tolerance nonsense like guns (can't even draw a picture) or drugs (can't even take an aspirin) are simply Democrat collectivist policies that remove responsibility from those that are a problem and punishes the innocent by denying them liberty.
It's that simple.
I did not take from that statement that he agreed with Feinstein, but, I have been known to get it wrong in the past.
I do think he was talking about the party of yesteryear so to speak.
I cannot think like a democrat, I do not know that I have known many but from what I have read the democratic party isn't the same of 30 plus years ago. I doubt it will ever find it's roots, if they have any?
Personally, I would rather starve and be homeless sleeping in the open air than to ever vote for a baby-killer or anti-Catholic secular humanist liberal.
If people think the social safety net should be larger, lobby pro-life Republicans on these issues.
"I cannot think like a democrat, ..."
Sure you can. Deny reality. Deny God. Oh, ok, sorry.
Try this then. Strong drink, way too much strong drink. It isn't exactly the same, but it will make you stop accepting reality and then make you really sick the next day. That is sort of like attending a Democrat Convention.
That pretty much says it all. That explains why 57% of Catholics in Maryland voted for the President (while 53% of Protestants in Maryland voted for Kerry). In 2000 approximately that same percent of Catholics voted for Gore. Slowly Catholics are being weaned away from the Demoncrat Party because of their pagan values.
