103. kerry and his campaign needs to "grok" something major...
due to the absolute desperate situation the DEMOCRATIC PARTY has put us in, we, the hardcore democratic base of liberals and leftleaners, most members of du being a prime example, are willing to bite the bullet and do our best to put kerry in the whitehouse.

but, and i hope they are reading this closely, if they think that they are going to get back into the whitehouse, and possibly (hopefully) take back congress, and then the party is going to go back to it's usual song and dance, controlled by the dnc/dlc, being whores to the corporations, they are sadly mistaken.

this is the make or break time for the democratic party.

they can either choose to do what is right and respond to their constituents, instead of tring to outdo the republicans by being republican lite, or we, the democratic base of liberals and leftleaners, will bring them to their knees.

they can either address the issues of their constituents, or we will go elsewhere.

where? i don't know, but i do know that a lot of us feel so strongly about this that we CAN sit our ass at home, come 2008.

they can agree to dance with their own, or they can be left standing on the dance floor.

i, for one, have had it with those who have basically turned their back on just about everything the democratic party used to stand for.

let them all lose their seats, at every level of government. something will rise to take their places.

meanwhile, i will do everything i can to get george fuckwad bush OUT of al gore's whitehouse.

after that, all bets are off.

:grr:
