44. I support the liberal and progressive arm of the democratic party
Edited on Wed Jan-06-10 01:05 AM by flyarm
I have been an elected Democrat in my state..I have been a registered Democrat since I was 18 years old..39 years ..I support what real democrats have always stood for..and the values and principles I was weaned on..not this bullshit being sold as "new democrats"..that is nothing but a total corporate pile of shit!

I do not support corporatist's!

I do not support those who lie to us with a straight face to get their asses into office then turn like a dog with rabies!

I do not support propagandists.

I do not support those who sell out my nations people.

I do not support those who will fuck sick people..for the profit of a few corporate whores,..and tell us it is good for us!

I have lived in Canada and know what real national health care is...I can not and will not be bullshitted into believing a pile of shit is roses!

I have been a 38 year member of a union working to elect democrats my entire adult lifetime.

My husband was VP of one of the strongest unions in this nation for 11 years and was a founding member of his union.

I will post here my displeasure of being sold out..and I will confront those who post bullshit passing it off as fact, when they know nothing about what they are posting about , that is little more than talking points and they are clueless to real fucking facts!
