10. it's not time to stop voting, it's time to start raising hell.
Edited on Fri Nov-13-09 10:40 PM by dusmcj
If the Party's institutional memory is too short to remember Chicago 1968, that's unwise.

And if this statement of mine motivates any readers who might think themselves "Connected" to see if they can prompt some law enforcement interest in this ungrateful nonconformist, then 1. go fuck yourself, and 2. the public servants whose time you'd be wasting will have nothing to find. It's been tried before. Again, go fuck yourself. In advance. It'll save you time later.

If it turns out that the Democratic Party produces a net result which suggests that they too are shills to the ignorami, to the upholders of the status quo of the unquestionable sanctity of the pursuit of self-interest by any means necessary, that they too are equivocators who pave the way for the exploiters and defilers, then the Democratic Party will lose.

Don't jerk yourself off wondering whether this is a threat. Consider it a statement of historically well-founded fact.
